Isn't it odd that the administrator of a counter-racist website is the first person to bring race into the picture?


No

Are you a "white" person?

Yes I would. It is imperative that all non-white people understand what they are talking to in a SYSTEM where the people classified as non-white are mistreated.


Why do you refer to a white person a "what" rather than "who"?

Everything in the universe comes down to saying and doing. To be white, in a SYSTEM of white supremacy (racism), means you say certain things and/or do certain things...function. Function is not a "who". Function is a "what". Function is behavior and behavior can be changed, logically speaking.

How do you function as a white person?

And why can't you derive "what" you're talking to by the ideas presented rather than from the skin color of the presenter?

I do it all the time. No person has the same color skin as a white crayon.

No so-called "White" Person is White.

Just take a White Person, who is supposedly, color-less as compared to
C o l o r e d People/People of Color...

"White People" and "People of Color"...

Now,

Compare that "White" Person's skin Color to his/her White Button Down Shirt (at the office)

Compare that "White" Person's skin Color to a White Blank sheet of Paper...

Compare that "White" Person's skin color to his White "Wife Beater" shirt!

Then ask your self (and answer truthfully)

Is that White Person...White ?

P.S. With the cheeks getting beet Red out in the Cold, or during "blushing", or all them green-ish "spider veins" all over, then add all those Tans that "White" People go through, etc,

A *White* Person ?

That is a tough sell...

But under the System of Racism White Supremacy...

People have accepted that without question.

I did too.

HighHouse,

Have something to ask you,

I once heard a white person say their "skin color is the same as god."

1) Do you believe your "skin color" is the same as God?

2) And is "God" classified as white?

No I do not.

God has no color. He is above the trivialities of race and ethnicity.

Let me think... ???

I often heard people classified as white refer to non-whites as "people of color."

Who are the "people without color?"

mmmm...

The reason you're described as "people of color" is because the color of your skin stands out much more than any other ethnicity. It's the feature that sticks out. Hence why Asians are described as squinty eyed by some. It's what sticks out. While not politically correct, it itself is not racist either.

Ah so you're saying that I can't function a certain way because I'm white? This is an odd idea coming from a person who seems to promote racial unity. But then again, your avatar suggests that as well. Seperatist Virtual_God?

What does a person not having skin color equal to that of a crayon have anything to do with what I said? I was trying to point out that a person's ideas are what's important, and that skin color is irrelevent, yet you throw at me that no1 is the same color as a crayon. A tad off topic wouldn't you say?

1) What is "ethnicity?"

2) If I'm (a non-white person) described as "people of color," then who is described as "people without color?"

3) Cone_Head, are you (a white person) saying you heard someone say "people of color?"

Are Asians "people of color?"

Nope. If being white in a SYSTEM of white supremacy (racism) does not have to do with your skin color (and it doesn't) and being white in a SYSTEM of white supremacy (racism) does not have to do with deeds (saying and doing) what does it have to do with?

How separate is separate? No such thing as separate. We are on a ball suspended in what is called "space"...we are all on the same ball that is called earth. This earth depends on other balls called the sun, moon, planets, etc. Everything in the universe depends on everything else.

How is that separate?

What you said about what? No person has the same skin color as a white crayon.

Nope. This is a work/study project on racism (white supremacy) and how to replace it with a SYSTEM of justice. I agree that skin color may be irrelevant. If that is true why do you say you're a white person?

I "have never heard of "getting a job". -Ranger

That is interesting.

A negro saying he has never heard of doing something besides SITTING ON HIS FAT ASS.

How are you promoting a SYSTEM where it is guaranteed no person is mistreated and also guaranteed the person that needs help the most gets the most help by making the statement above?
