and it is deemed acceptable for a black man to be racist because of our nations past? I find it sad that some black people are even brought up by their parents still believing this. perhaps it's just the media playing tricks on me? I have hung out with black people before many times and i get that blame-it-on-the-honkey mentality. now I understand this is not a 100% stereotype glove-fit. there are exceptions obviously. but has the word racist morphed into a word designed for white people who are intolerant of other cultures? If you do not understand what I'm saying, basically how most words start out non-pejorative and turn pejorative such as gay, bitch, fag, etc. Please respond with your opinion no matter what your race is! And please don't even TRY to give me shit about not using the term african-american. you'll just be proving my point furthermore.
