Doesn't shock me.

While I can appreciate where LawOutlaw is coming from, I always have a hard time buying into this utopic view of race relations when nine times out of ten something happens in my life that's as fucking cliched as possible.

Followed around a grocery store, woman holds onto her bag tightly when I step into an elevator, dirty looks, pulled over for no apparent reason (too many ******s in the car limit, tbh).

I'm not expecting everybody to get where I'm coming from, because the experiences aren't the same. But don't expect me to believe that this country has changed into a beautiful melting pot of equality over the last few years because I'm reminded daily that it's not.

Let's not even get into the King beating, Diallo shooting, and almost every bit of cop news that gets play over here.

Quoted for truth. Now I don't use racism as a cop out, but dammit, I've been profiled before. It's annoying. Juilliard wouldn't except me because they didn't believe I composed the song I sent them. Go on youtube to any performance video with a black performer. It can be ANY genre, even classical, and you'll see the most atrocious comments. If I say that I'm working on getting a Doctorate's at Berklee, no one believes me. The mall thing happens WAY too often. Driving while black has happened to a lot of people I know, but never to me. America is a living contradiction, and has been since day one.
Now, I know white people get profiled too. It's a shame, because at the end of the day, no one is ever happy. Well, in a few hundred more years nationalities won't exist anymore, anyway.

I still think one of the major factors to current racism is location. Where people grow up plays a large part in beliefs and views that they have. I can understand how you probably feel as racism is just another form of being judged off of appearance. Some of the things you pointed out though I don't think are specifically related to race.

Being followed around, people feeling insecure around someone happens all the time everywhere and its because of looks and stereotyping. For example if your a teenager or early 20's possibly how your dressed it doesn't matter what race you are people just think of teens as troublesome or up to no good. I've gone to places before and immediately been out casted simply because the way I was dressed or just how I looked, the same happens to everyone because at some point everyone is judged in their lives off of looks.

This doesn't mean though that race can't and doesn't play a part sometimes in situations like these as I'm sure it does.

I wasn't going to start my own thread simply to get real discussion going as it did relate here already so might as well be here.

I don't appreciate being compared to Lance Storm........I'm not Canadian, thats just racist of you.......hehe
Real discussion is discouraged. Go back to the technology section.

If you don't beilive that there is still profiling and injustice to minorities then your ignorant.

If the balck community thinks that for a second, that the goverment or people as a whole are going to change out of teh blue then they're also ignorant.

The black community needs to stand up, reject the stereotypes that all balck people do drugs and commit crimes and say we're not going to take it anymore, and it starts in teh family, Bill Cosby is right, when you have the divorice rate and the number of single mothers you have in the black community, it seems like your destined to fail, the community as a whole needs another leader, another MLK, and only after they fight for equality and reject the idea that you either grow up to be a cop or a criminal.
