Well this is a question some of you might have already been asked this but I want to know.

If someone is racist towards you what do you do to them?

Do you think its right to use violence to deal with racism?

No- not violence. If I am on a web forum I ignore them or report them. If I see something like that in person I get away from the nuts.

violence only makes things worse in most cases. Do what MLK did, and use non0-violent tactics in my opinion.

I loved being racist with my black friend, he loved to be racist with me. I called him "chocolate bar" and his little brother "shadow", he called me "milk face", then we both shared a laugh and kept on being stupid.

Racism tolerance varies on people, of course I don't promote racist behaviour, but with friends who don't take it seriously it's pretty funny.

I would take it rather personally and would be rather hurt.

Do you think its right to use violence to deal with racism?

No, violence is very rarely the solution to anything.

Genocide.

Oh, that was in poor taste. I feel bad for that one.

Martin Luther King refused to use violence as a weapon during his Civil Rights Movement campaign. Violence is really one less thing we should ever have to use in life.

I'd typically just try to play it off or simply say something like "I'm not like that" or "so that's what you think?".

It's something that shouldn't exist, really. Race itself is annoying to think about, as it's really doing more harm than good for the world. It's just another way to separate people from other people outside of other "factors" like ethnicity, wealth, creed, etc. Separation makes it harder for humans to get along, perhaps more than anything else.

The media as well as how people are raised up are perhaps reasons why people you may or may not know will treat you with prejudice or profile you; the preceding terms make more sense after taking a course in sociology.

I know I'm not really answering your question that well, but the problem is that very few people know or want to believe that every last one of us has origins in Africa, regardless of color or any other feature corrupt and confused people want to label anyone with. If everyone knew and understood the truth about there not being an actual gene for race, it would be, well, non-existent. No matter where you go, you'll find it (even [perhaps infamously] on Chatroulette!), from home to across the globe, it's next to impossible to avoid this type of conflict.

For the longest I use to think of Eastern Asia, or Japan in more detail as the "final frontier" of the human expansion of the world, before they crossed the landbridge into the Western world, if the evidence the scientists have found indeed is 100% true about Africa being the true motherland of humanity. With that mindset, I found joy in coming across this; why Eastern Asia/Japan you may ask? Well I also found this to be the best most epic evidence of my thougts/dreams (look at the eyes!).

I think when more people see vids like this, their eyes will be as open as those of Adam and Eve in the book of Genesis, when they ate from the Tree of Knowledge (for those like myself who believe that, anyway). Quit humiliating yourself, and join me!

I've never dealt with racism towards myself, no one seems to believe I'm Mexican but instead Puerto Rican or Greek or something else. Meh

First off, i love how most posts in this thread are either something like, "I'm white" or "I'm usually the racist one."

At my school, i am one of the VERY few white (Irish) people. My school is populated by Mexicans and Indians (towel, not feather). The Mexicans seem to always find some lame way to COMPLETELY stereotype themselves, or at least that's what i've seen. They all know that i am of a dying breed and naturally, they remind me of it every so often. I generally tell them that one very famous line, "Quite frankly dear, i don't give a damn". I also just keep to myself. They are all morons anyways.

ALL IN ALL, keep to yourself. Don't let the morons get to you. They will all be sorry when you take over the world. :D

Im not white, but when someone says something racist to me I gladly agree and then get all pissed off and leave. But I think that we all have a little rascist in us.

I would verbally retaliate without using racist language. I would proceed to leave the person thinking about my words.

It depends.
