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?


Ahh, see that's of course assuming that I think this whole "system" exists. And somehow, a system that governs my thoughts and actions that I don't even realize exists, seems far fetched to me.

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?


I didn't ask if we could become seperate, I asked if you were trying to divide whites and non-whites, or bring them together.

Btw, you can seperate people, while being on Earth. You can put them in different schools, different countries, different continents. We seperate criminals from the rest of society with jail. We seperate our President with the secret service. Can you just go up to the President for a hug? I think not. I'd say you're pretty seperated from him. But that's off my point.

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


Okay, follow me from post to post here. I know no person has skin color equal to that of a crayon, and why does this fact have anything to do with:

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


As you can see, I'm not trying to say white people are like crayons. I'm trying to say, why bring race into it at all? Shouldn't this discussion be about how best to counter racism rather than what color whites really are?

Nope. This is a work/study project on racism (white supremacy) and how to replace it with a SYSTEM of justice.


How does informing me of facts I already know (like what color my skin is) help counter racism?

Virtual_God wrote:

I agree that skin color may be irrelevant. If that is true why do you say you're a white person


because you ask me things like:

How do you function as a white person?


And when I bring up the topic of my skin color, it's usually in statements like these:

I was trying to point out that a person's ideas are what's important, and that skin color is irrelevent


Get the drift? I feel you're the one trying to make the distinction that I'm white rather than me.

The dictionary is your friend.

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


No one silly pants. There is no ethnic group that has distinctive colorless skin, therefore I do not ever have to use this phrase "people without color".

Karim wrote:

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


I'm saying I'm a person that heard someone say "people of color". My being white has nothing to do with my auditory capabilities. Stop asking obvious questions that you already should know the answers to. It does nothing but annoy people, which won't really help counter racism, now will it?

Karim wrote:
Are Asians "people of color?"


I, personally, have not heard of an asian being described as a "person of color".

And Karim, I've ofter heard you say "Non-White". Does this mean you are every color of the rainbow, except white?

Let's observe some of what Cone_head wrote

And keep in mind that Cone_Head has stated (on the record), he is classified as "white."

Cool! But is the the term in use...

Keep reading

No

Cone_Head,

Are you here to "help counter racsim/white supremacy?"

No, it means not FUNCTIONING as people classified as white

I ask who are the "people without color?" --> No one silly pants.

Question = I ask who are the "people without color?"
Answer = No one silly pants.

Given I clarified why no one is called people without color after that, but that was just a:

Well..... let me see if I can pound the nail of understand through the block of wood.

Karim wrote:

You said that putting extra emphasis on "a white person". I said that I am a person who has heard that phrase. This indicates that I have no idea why you put white person there, and that I think it has no relevance to the fact that I have or haven't heard a particular statement.

I apoligize if you can't understand what I'm saying. Perhaps you understand how most outsiders feel when they come here?

What can't you do that I can do? Besides understand what I'm saying of course ;)

ConeHead,

Are saying that there are people of color but there are no people without color, and you classify yourself as "white?" And under the system of white supremacy I'm classified as "Black..."

Am I right thus far?

Ok, ConeHead

{{{slow mo}}}

Black and White are the only two color classification in existance... all other classifications such as Asian, Middle Eastern, Mexican, etc. aren't white, so what other color classification are they classified as?

Now, I once heard people classified as white refer to people other than themselves as "people of color..."

... What is the opposite of "people of color?"

The opposite of people of color are people who don't bitch and don't use racism as a crutch.

How are you promoting Justice; Justice meaning guaranteeing no person is mistreated and those who needs the most help gets it?

For Non-whites: Did HighHouse answer my question...?

I think not...

"I'm not gonna answer it, instead I'm gonna talk to other non-whites about how clever I am"

For Whites: Did Karim answer my question...?

Or course not. Even after he made it clear that he tries to promote justice, he chose to evade my question.
