    This is a stupid post.

    This is why I hate the idea of racism:

    Watch this video, I look at two comments, the second is a reply from the uploader:

    "Really? Playing the "racist" card here does an immense disservice to all the people trying to expose true racism and bigotry. There is NO racism here; the guy got punched because he was being an asshole, flipping the bird and being an obnoxious, arrogant idiot, NOT because he's black. He deserved what he got no matter what color he is. Obviously his (the antagonist's) mama didn't raise him right."

    Uploader:
    "I laughed at diservice, all I am doing is getting ore views. You know this used to be called "Reporter attacks idiot in background" I got 32 views in one month. I got 4000 views with this in 2 weeks "


    People are too quick to call racism. Blatant racism does have an underlining of ignorance, but it's the differences in racial action that can change that. If I see a group of Aboriginals in line with me late at night when I am walking home, I will swap to the other side of the road, purely because I'm being cautious and not wanting to be possibly robbed and beaten like I have been before.

    Yeah, sorry for that. People are annoying with this "Race" card bullshit, I think they just want attention. Or I could be wrong. Like always. ):

    People have their personal reasons for being racist, or it could stem from lineages of ignorance. But you're right about the "race" card. It's annoying to see people put something into racial context when it had no initial intention of doing so. It’s a painful reality knowing that some people don’t even know what actual racial commentary is, so they go around labeling everything they assume colorfully offensive as racist. That’s how dumbed down the concept of racism gets sometimes.
