  • When racism meets probability...

    I mean, I hate to say it, but it's statistically true that black men and Mexicans commit more crime than white men and Asians. While this certainly isn't true for all members of those groups, if a crime has recently been committed and the police have four suspects, one from each category, then it's more likely that one of the former did it rather than one of the latter. And it's safe to proceed that way.

    That might be racist, but it's more efficient.

  • It all depends on what you mean by racism

    I have answered yes because it seems to be built in to the human psyche to prefer your own kind.
    Trendy liberals deny this of course but very very few immerse themselves in the culture of another race. Ie practice what they preach.

    That racism which seeks to exploit abuse or denigrate is unjustifiable.
    That racism that does not wish to assimilate but directs no harm to any groups is accptable.

  • Cognitive Racism builds justifiable racism and racism is part of the human condition

    Marginalising ethnic minority communities and discriminating against them universally creates a sub-class which then has to turn to crime/low-skilled jobs to survive. People also enjoy ridiculing accents/cultures in their own countries and these foreign people receive a concentrated version of it. Because of initial racism and inherent racism is always present (preference to natives rather than immigrants, often unbeknownst to a person).

  • Categorizing people is necessary

    People always seek a way to categorize to make things more easier to deal with. Race is a giant category, and it is one of the main crime predictors (within the top 3 normally) in a racially diverse environment. Acknowledging race is just like acknowledging age or gender. Race is a category which we can use for good when we make decisions.

  • Yes, but only when considering an entire group.

    Although it may be true that not every individual follows their racial stereotype, there is a lot of data that show trends of certain things among racial groups. For instance, there are facts that show that African Americans are much more likely to commit violent crimes. There is a difference between being racist and ignoring hard facts.

  • Sometimes... Weird Things Happen

    One, if a woman gets raped by an ethnic group, she's entitled to be prejudiced against that group's trustworthiness. Heck, a person shouldn't have to endure assault in the first place before assuming that someone isn't necessarily trustworthy.

    Two, many parents who have kids are irrational. If we don't tolerate racism for them, they'll become elitists instead, emotionally judging their own kids as impractical and becoming rugged individualists.

    Three, race is part of emotional compatibility. When people have similar genes, hormones, neurology, and environment, they find happiness in compatible ways.

  • It can be justified sometimes.

    I get mistreated by African Americans all the time, and I'm often not at fault for anything; so why support a group in which the majority are uneducated?

    Also, hating Muslims if you're not one of them is also justified; check out all the recent attacks they've planted on Non-Muslim countries!

  • Racism and discrimination are not inherently evil in all situations...

    The worst mistake a society can make is to declare racism inherently evil. People need to have the right to discriminate in their personal lives, especially in their romantic and reproductive decisions. If, for example, a white person refuses to date inter-racially because they want to have white children, this is acceptable racism and should always be legal. Harassing or intimidating a person who makes this personal decision should result in the imprisonment of those who call this person a racist, as it is crimen injuria. Just like people have the right to sleep with whomever they want, in a free and liberal society people should also have the right to not sleep with whomever they don't want to sleep with, without having to fear imprisonment or the loss of their jobs.

  • Don't Try to Pull the "Crime" Card

    In regards to another argument on the affirmative side, stating the people of color commit more crimes than white people. I would like to add that this is not true. 42.9% of violent crimes are committed by white people, 22.4 by black people, 14.8 by Hispanic people, and 12.1 by other races. Just fact checking.

  • Racism is stunting economic development.

    Poor people are stigmatized, and poor people are for the majority non-white. People who have nowhere else to turn and are in desperate need of money commit crimes, not races. People who are forced to take allegiance with violent gangs because of where they live commit crimes, not races. If we can change our perception of these unfortunate people and stop the history of suppression these previously impoverished people can contribute enormously to society on a social level as well as on an economical level.

  • Whites come from different circumstances

    Than blacks and Hispanics do. My justified racism you are only making the opportunity gap between whites and people of color wider. Liberals aren't stupid and ignorant like some people seem to be assuming. There are statistics that prove how much circumstance defines the likely hood of discrimination- not the person itself .

  • Racism causes problems

    Look, the reason Hispanic and Blacks more crime-related is because of racism! Since they were in slavery for many hundred of years, their race is now impoverished. So now they are uneducated and poor, with people like you claiming they are dangerous. How would that make you feel? Of course they are violent! They don't know what else to do! The only way to prevents this is to discourage racism heartily.

  • Racism Hinders Human Progress

    Racism is never acceptable.

    Ever.

    Marginalizing, demonizing, insulting and bullying descendents of African American slaves does creates more destruction and tension than it does progress. History shows this. Again. And Again. And Again. And Again.

    Anyone who ever justifies racism needs to sit down and look long, hard in the mirror. Fear is an ugly thing, and fear is what perpetuates racism. The only way to combat your own fear is not by boxing people into groups; they aren't responsible for your fear, you are.

    Innocent until proven guilty; unless you're black. Then you are a threat on the offset and must be dealt with from the day you are born.

    Because that won't mess a human being up.

  • Racism is NEVER Justified

    I am shocked that this is even up for debate.

    "Innocent until proven guilty, unless you are black"

    Racism blocks human progress, period. It is never a good thing. Anyone who defends it lives in an ideal world where they would rather shove people in a box and out of site than deal with the responsibilities and realities of living together.

    Race is something we will always acknowledge, but we should never, ever demonize, harass and attack people due to the color of their skin or their culture. That is a slippery slope that always leads to injustice.

  • The government doesn't do any thing about the KKK

    In certain regions of america people gathering in secret to burn a cross and rant on about how blacks,Asians,any foreigner in america that isn't white in america should be deported. And furthermore many of my fellow Americans rise up against non-white Americans to be a white Utopian america for white people.

  • Racism should never be justified

    Personally, I really don't see any way that this question needs to be debated. Racism should never, ever be justified, no matter what the cause. Racism is a completely different form of offense, and has never been tolerated and should not be. Racism is something I have taken quite seriously.
