    I guess I am lucky.
    My work is so diverse.
    And in the last 8 years I have yet to hear or see anything racist.

    You know Del Rio mentioned programming or awards that are geared towards a group as maybe , maybe not being a way to feed hate.
    I am not sure, it just seems to be choice and celebration of a certain culture.

    No biggy in my book.

    Live and let live.

    Re: racist question? please advise.

    Well you know, Chris rock said:

    "First of all there aren't even that many black people in the country, we're like 10 percent of the motherf*cking population. It's like New York, Atlanta, DC, Chicago...like 10 places! There aren't any black people in... Minnesota! The only black people in Minnesota are Prince and Kirby Puckett."

    Maybe Chris Rock in his infinite wisdom just explained why all the cheerleaders are white..or maybe not, what do I know, I've never actually been to Minnesota.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    Honostly I think it is because they train and work so hard at it, ping-pong is huge in asia, not so much anywhere else. It boils down to hard work, not genetics.

    The football player question I would say was answered correctly.

    The cheerleader one is a bit more gritty, but as a black male I'll bite.

    The honest reason is that in America, white women are still the standard of beauty. This standard of beauty is very rigid, and has not changed for quite some time. Exotic women (brazilian, etc) are valued, but for the most part, there is definately still a bias especially surrounding black women.

    Why do I say this? Not because I'm a bitter black man (believe me, my ex girlfriend was polish,) but because it's true. Think of the black women considered most beautiful in America. Halle Berry. She's half white, number 1, and number 2 her features are delicate and sharp enough that she has an almost european bone facial structure. Beyonce? Pale skinned enough that she doesn't look too black. Case in point with Beyonce: People said she didn't look good in Austin Powers Goldmember. Why? Because she had an afro. Believe it or not, Afro is the natural state of black persons' hair - male or female. When she went back to that, she was ridiculed. When is Alicia Keys considered most beautiful? When her hair is long, permmed, and straight. When it's in cornrows, she is considered less beautiful.

    I know this may seem as if I'm trying reverse racism or something here, but if you think about it, you'll find me to be right.

    Edit: This is true of black men as well

    [I am NOT bragging here] I was considered one of the better looking individuals at my high school - but I kept my hair very, very short (think Randy when he first came into the league.) Then I let my hair grow through the summer of my junior year into my senior year, and let my hair alternate between a fro and cornrows (not as big as Randy's :lol: ). People looked at me differently - much differently. I kept my fro very clean, always well shaped and my face stayed tidily shaven, but perspectives still changed. It's just true - think about Will Smith, Denzel Washington etc. vs Randy Moss, Allen Iverson, etc. Both Moss and Iverson are good looking black men - but they both wear their hair very ethnically.
    What if it was reversed?
    Note: This is strictly a hypothetical question

    BTW, very good analysis!
    Racism is no less problematic no matter WHOM is is directed at.

    Let me share a secret with all of you: Black people are some of the most racist people on the face of this earth. Let me qualify that with two things: Yes, we have some reason to be, but no, that doesn't make it right. Reciprocation doesn't change things, only humility and hard work do that.

    Despite all the WASPS of America have done to blacks, that gives us no right to hate them. For every white American whom is ignorant, hickish, and would as soon hang me as speak to me, there are two good hearted white Americans. But these two may also be very different - one legitimately ignorant to racism, to the point where he doesn't believe it exists (it does) and the other one who acknowledges the still-pervasive influence of racism and works every day to counteract it.
    I pretty much agree with what you say. But I was posing the hypothesis of What If whites were the victims of racism and blacks had the upper hand...not to stir up trouble, but rather, to allow everyone to look at it from the other side of the equation. We should always "walk a mile in another man's shoes" so that we can more fully understand how our own actions affect those around us. But this advice goes both ways...those of us who obtain power after having been downtrodden have just as much responsibility to use that power wisely...the temptation to enjoy the fruits of our labors is very easy to succumb to once we have scaled the summit.

    We are all saddled with a certain number of prejudices...what we do after we realize that we have those prejudices is what defines us as human beings. The greatest among us look past those things and aspire to a higher plateau...and those that do attain that higher plateau are the ones that find true joy in the human race...the friendships that they cultivate are solidly based on mutual respect for others and are cemented in the highest qualities of the human spirit. It is a daily battle that we all must fight...but one that will ultimately result in greater racial and spiritual harmony throughout the world.
