If you’re in a country where you can’t earn a living, your child has been threatened with violence, your wife and daughters threatened with rape and being forced into prostitution... then yes, escaping to the closest one that you deem as safe is perfectly logical and understandable. Even if white supremacy and systemic racism exists in that country. If I was drowning in the ocean, and the only chance of getting rescued was by a Nazi U Boat, I’ll take it

But these types of complexities of ideas can’t be conveyed in a meme...

OF4S, that comic did not give the bigger context. There is vast racism against hispanics, but many hispanics see themselves as whites. Blacks cannot hide from their color. Like that jj? lol

There is racism, but you take the poison from the apple by universal programs. "Why do they get that, but I cannot?" The whites say that. The thin veneer of racism will melt away. Not with the hard core fringe of around 20 percent of whites. That is a lot, but it has been worse.

I don’t think “universal programs” are going to “solve racism “
A lot of anti Black bigotry from Whites (and others as well) comes from those at the bottom looking for someone else to look down upon and scapegoat. That’s a psychological issue in many ways, why humans need to bolster themselves by belittling others

That cartoon is literally true. Can you imagine how bad your life must be to have to be forced to do that? If only US foreign policy hawks thought that every time they launched a new war.

It's the one thing Trump had over Clinton, under her we'd all be at brunch and the US would be involved in more wars than it had ever been. I'm hoping Biden doesn't pick that one up.

One of the biggest lies is that is commonly believed is that refugees are poorest of poor.

The truth is that most of them are from the lower-middle class or middle class of their country. That's how they have the means to escape.

It's true they arrive here with almost nothing or nothing but, usually, they're willing to work hard and the sky is the limit in terms of opportunity in America. That's why they come.

The victim mentality is a uniquely western concept. Alot of first or second generation offspring of refugees tend to flounder because they believe it.

Trump was actually up in every demographic besides white males.

But I wonder how you would react if I used the same terms and try to apply it to the black community. For some reason, I think you would be jamming the report button and trying to get me banned for racist vitriol.

Funny how nobody posts political cartoons of racists spewing out hate and contempt for minorities while simultaneously consuming their culture but denying centuries of injustice. *Albums matter* but black lives and opinions don't. Racists feel suddenly oppressed these days while blaming others and sewing division among minorities. And that cartoon fails to address America's part in creating the chaos that lead to instability in those Latin American countries but that's never addressed because it's easier to mock desperate people than own up to decades long interference. The racist nonsense on this site is ridiculous.

Well, cartoons can only express simple ideas. The problem is that most intelligent people recognize that these are complex issues that can’t be boiled down to slogans and memes

Well yeah, the poorest of the poor are dead or can't afford to get there, and those who do get there are the last ones in the door trying to keep it closed behind them. Case in point, i'm from Ireland, during the Irish famine the poorest million died, and the next poorest million emigrated, many to America. Nowadays the biggest fucking racists going are Irish Americans.

As for "work hard," that's just the ongoing apparently still powerful myth of American exceptionalism. Wake up. Poor people only go there when they have no choice. Same as the thousands of people drowing on boats to Europe. They're not trying to get here because they expect a great welcome, they're desperate.

Don't get me wrong though, of course there's opportunities in America. If I had no morals and didn't mind stepping on the poor I could probably get my company to get me a H1B Visa and get on the path to citizenship, it's been offered before. With a lot of hard work and luck I could be a millionaire in a way I couldn't over here; benefiting from lower taxes, "better protections" for my wealth as it grows it, more "opportunity" to buy land at a cheaper/less taxed rate etc.

Now I don't want to do that, I don't believe in it, I believe in taking care of the poor in my society in a way the US system absolutely does not... but I have the option.

I'm not desparate though, i'm in a privileged position here. I wouldn't be turning up at the border asking for refugee status. A world of difference. No amount of hard work would get these people at my starting point if I chose it.

JJ, 2Elijah, you off the train now? lol

I don't even agree with Biden. Lotsa racism.


Most Americans don't want to be thought of as racist, but actions are the true indicator of their hearts. Their privilege, fragility, and pride tell on them.

America was built on racism. The constitution and Bill of Rights was written by and for white people, not all people. "We the people.." was written during a time when Black and Indigenous people weren't considered human beings. "A more perfect union..." had nothing to do with Black folks, other than using their labor - via slavery - to build said union.

That ideology has been continually perpetuated. I think Americans believe that after 1860, Black folks were just ingratiated into society and things were fine. All of their shortcomings as a people are their own fault, and none on that of the system that still exists which was built without consideration for them. The ways of that racism has been altered and modified over the decades. Brown vs. Board of education was gutted, Voting Rights Act has been continually gutted. Even citizenship and the right to life and and education isn't guaranteed. Clarence Thomas, among others, are at the forefront of being house negros in modern government.

And you wanna talk about Joe Biden - go look at his track record, just as an example, on busing in the 70s. You didn't know where he stood unless you knew what time it was, because he changed more than a shadow of a tree in the summer. He ultimately sided with the racist side of the debate. His reasoning was as thin as the skin on the back of his wrinkled, aged-spotted hands. He's not great savior.

Sometimes I think Republicans aren't so bad, because at least you know who they are. Their bigotry and racism is on full display, under their Trump flags, MAGA hats, and Confederate flags. Democrats hide it in quasi-woke statements on equality, but their policies and backing of bigoted laws and bills tell a different story.

There is classism, but you take away the poison of class privilege so people can no longer say "Why do they get that, but I cannot?" The non-privileged classes say that. The thin veneer of classism will melt away. However, the systemic racism within each class and across all classes but is especially strong within the hard core fringes in the less privileged classes remains.

Racism is not just an act.

.

Because it is not just an act, it can be:

.

- An unconscious bias where you respect those like you and look down on those who are different,

.

- an unthinking negative response to a different look or sound such as culture attire, colours, jewellery, hairdos, accents.

.

Where the racism it is systemic, it requires an admission that your successes may be because of how society enables privileges for you that are denied or harder to get for people of other ethnic backgrounds. It requires recognising that the society, government, laws and history you respect has a side to it that has created the disparities between people simply because of the different ethnic background of people in that society. And then there is the fear of what you may loose if you are already struggling as member of a privileged race if that privilege is removed or shared wider.

.

To dismiss racism as just an act and show more concern for those tagged as racist is in the words of Chomsky "intentional ignorance".

I think you're both right, on varied levels, all of which I won't go into here.

Racist is bigotry in action. It's systemic, which dictates people's actions and forms ideologies and mindsets. Those mindsets of subsequent generations, in turn, form new systemic white supremacist policies, laws, rules, and guidelines.

As an anarchist, a big rule is that of recognizing classism. Many of my fellow anarchists dismiss racism in the U.S., saying the U.S. is one of the least racist places. They always point to classism. But I disagree. If a cop who makes $X a year harrasses, arrests, or murders a Black citizien who makes the same $X per year, even having comparable homes, cars, or whatever - where is the classism there?

Do poor white kids get worse treatment than rich Black kids? Likely not. Look at the funding (and the constant cutting thereof) for schools is largely Black neighborhoods and communities than those in any particular white neighborhood. The different in money per child per year is staggeringly in favor of the white majority school.

There is also truth in creating distrust or disparity within groups of people. The Nixon papers clearly stated this. He sought to send people into Black, gay, and hippy communities to cause fractions in their groups, thereby weakening them as a community, and their ability to gather together against the government (namely the Nixon administration which was inherently bigoted, as was ever other one before and since).

So now they blame the DNC for America’s system of racism? Lmao. They know damn well racism existed long before any political party in this country. When a majority of a different, racial group create laws to make slavery legal in a country, towards persons of a different racial group .. it’s intentional and that’s f***ing racism. It’s a system based on enslavement and racism. How is it that some of these folks pretend they don’t know that?

Righties need to stop blaming the Democratic Party for America’s institutional racism, and stop running from an uncomfortable truth, by using their spin shit to deny, that systemic racism exists in this country.

They call the Democratic Party a plantation when it’s the lazy ass repubs in Congress, who are the ones with the plantation mentality, but they’ll never admit it, because when have they ever held themselves accountable for anything? It’s always someone else’s fault to them. Which party is the one trying every tactic to suppress the Black vote? The Repubs. They’re terrified of the Black vote or they wouldn’t be going through so much trouble to suppress it. They fear the Browning of America as well, that’s why they freak out on the immigration issue, because they depended on Trump to put a stop on Black and Brown immigrants coming into this country.

And members of the repub party whose willing to lie for a obsessive liar like Trump, shows they have no balls, no courage. Just a bunch of loudmouths with no backbone, because they allowed Trump to put his foot square up their ass, and they’re still searching for their balls.

What's your definition of "my starting point"?

I ask because my wife's aunt came to America as one of the boat people of Vietnam and, through a ton of hard work, she managed to make it to middle class business owner within a generation before she passed. And she was pretty grateful for the opportunity and the ability to send money back to her family in Vietnam that were suffering under communism.

I know you're telling me to "get real' but it's an actual thing that happens alot. It's not a fantasy despite what the media tells you. If you're willing to grind and put in the hours, you can move up in western society. Anybody.

It's even easier for native born US citizens since anybody can join the military for a good jumping off point in life.

But hey, I commend you for staying in your country and trying to help the poor. It's a noble thing. But be proud of what western civilization (and in your case, Catholicism) has built. Drop the self hate.

You're not saying anything I haven't heard from White people my entire life...so you don't surprise me at all....In fact, it's pretty boring and PREDICTABLE by now. I'm sure that's your true beliefs.

Oh, and you know who actually AGREES with me about White Trump supporters ??....my wife, who happens to be White. And half my family...who happen to be White. And a good deal of my friends and colleagues...who happen to be White. And NONE of them are fat ignorant racist Trump supporters. THEY don't fit the stereotype. But you'd be totally disingenuous if you claim that these types DON'T exist

So, please find what part of your ass is most suitable to stick your absurd claims of "racism" against me, and place it up there as gently as possible

Hello fellow race mixer.

But you're kind of making my point. You think of all conservatives as fat ignorant whites and you hate them. Your wife and your family and your friend/colleagues are the token "good ones". Which is funny because I think it was you that brought that up that concept in a different thread regarding racists and their love of black conservatives.

You are everything you claim to hate.

(And you know who agrees with me? My very Catholic wife from Vietnam. She's wayyyyyy further right than I am. But I'm sure you would say that's just because she's uneducated or a victim of disinformation, the same way the media dismisses most far-right Vietnamese and Cubans.

Even funnier, the comment you jumped on to try to turn it against what you think I am, it wasn't even about blacks. It's asian and latino first and second generation kids that are grabbing onto victim mentality)

Yea, they get angry if you accuse them of being racist. If they were racist they would not care if you accused them, they would just be racist. Even Trump, who did let black people out of jail.



Once you call someone racist they can never wash that off. Racism, once again is an act.




So because Trump let a couple of colored people out of jail, that erases his decades of well documented bigotry ?



Are you on medication ? If not, should you be ?


He must be, because anybody who believes Trump isn’t racist, must have overdosed on too much Trump juice. Way too much of it.
That’s like saying because Obama became President, that racism in America magically ended.
