Nobody is born a racist. We are the products of our environment.

Everyone is born racist. You have to lie to yourself to think otherwise, because you are literally going against a natural survival mechanism. In olden days you distrusted people from outside of your tribe or you usually died. Nowadays you have mentally retarded people claiming we should love our enemies. No thanks.

The mere exposure effect is incredibly influential in our lives. I hesitate to say that we're born racist, but you are correct that we very quickly establish with whom we belong and who the 'others' are. White babies are shown through studies to prefer white faces and black babies to black faces, etc.

Xenophobia isn't an impenetrable bias. It's there so that we are initially weary of outsiders. But, over time, through reciprocation and trust-building, people from different tribes were able to cooperate on many endeavors, including seasonal hunts and farming activities.

If xenophobia was such an implicit bias, we wouldn't be able to form a civilization of any size whatsoever. Concepts like laws and the social contract help us cooperate at much greater scales than our ancestors.

Thanks for clarifying.

In that case, I would say that I am racist due to a phenomenon known as classical conditioning, whereby I am conditioned to regard blacks as dangerous and untrustworthy due to repeated experiences with them which caused me to cultivate a particular association between the occurrence of one bad event in the anticipation of another. Thanks.

Exactly. I judge people by their actions. Not their color and what I keep seeing is Nigs are low life scum. All nigs should commit suicide today and give America an awesome Merry Xmas.

Generally what made me racist was people calling me racist. By my definition I'm not racist, but since I have a different opinion other people determine that I am.

Some people will blame the whole "did the time, might as well do the crime" mentality, but it really is true. If I'm going to be yelled at for being racist, sexist, or whatever regardless, might as well just let loose and enjoy myself.

I'm not a racist. I give every individual the opportunity to make an impression on me. I will not judge you until I have interacted w you.

I'm sick of everyone telling me im the root of all evil because I have a white cock. I'm done listening to that bullshit.

Some clowns like to say that you mustn't objectify others, but everyone is an object to others until you get to know them. Most of them are dickheads but there are some decent dickheads around.

I don't know how the platitude goes but I think treating people like they aren't people is the root of evil. Most evil, probably.

If you define greed to be the root of all evil, that statement is just a tautology. Self interest is the most reliable basis for cooperation and society, and absolutely has to be a part of any long term survival strategy. When most people criticize greed or selfishness, they are really talking about short sightedness.

Reality. But there is a limmit. A person's race is only a guideline to who they are likely to be. As a general population the stereotypes I've built up are accurate. However every individual must be considered in their own right when the chance is there. A person's race is not the deciding factor in who they are. It is a clue as to who they are likely to be if no better evidence is available. And it is accurate when speaking in general about large groups of people.

That's only 99% accurate.

It is a clue as to who they are likely to be if no better evidence is available.

It's the best evidence even when other evidence is available since niggers are liars.

And it is accurate when speaking in general about large groups of people.

Those blacks and Muslims who you think are friendly would gladly lynch you when they're in a group of their own and you're the minority.

The environment. Places I've worked have made me regard blacks differently. Their culture values not working more than white culture. Not all, but a lot of black coworkers would do lazy things.

Laziness is a virtue. Stupidity and violence aren't.

Unless it's violence against niggers and cops, which is awesome and well-deserved.

Their culture. Spend time living deep in the culture of some races, and you'll see why people are racist. That's not too say all people of a race are the same, but culture is big deal to the majority.

I know enough about modern age islam and its history to know its full of bad ideas.

Seeing all these rapes, crimes, and terrorist attacks gives me no choice but to conclude they do not belong in the west. We shall not sacrifice our quality of life to not offend some fucking muslims
