Black people of r9k I need some advice. What are some small things I can do to not be racist? I personally have nothing against black people however I was raised in a very racist household and I think some of it has seeped into my personality despite my best intentions. It's nothing too extreme, just things like whenever I see a black guy working behind a cash register or on the bus or something I notice. My brain quickly categorizes them into a metaphorical "Black People" folder. This folder is separate from the "Regular" People folder, but equal in all other aspects. How do I stop noticing black people and telling myself to "be cool" when talking to them?
get a black girlfriend. that will completely cure your racism.
you see this person every day, shes seen you piss, seen you when youve pooped your pants, youve seen her when she bleeds out her vagina, shes seen you naked.
it would be impossible to hate someone who youre that close to.
HAHAHAHA you're a fucking racist. Deal with it. Same with the retards that say "women and men are different but equal" not they fucking aren't. They fulfill totally different roles and are supposed to COMPLEMENT each other, not MIRROR each other. God fucking damn.
Now for the racist bit, there's nothing a black faggot can do that a white faggot cannot do, being the first to invent something aside (whether it's Tesla and AC/DC, Einstein and E equals mc, or the peanut butter guy and peanut butter). If you are racist in regard to who you're attracted to, who gives a fuck? I'm black and I like white women with medium sized tits. But those are usually sluts, so lately I've developed an attraction to frail-looking white women.
you know that's honestly probably the best advice i'm gonna get on here. I don't mean to be racist but I just don't understand a lot of the culture. Also ive heard that apparently it's offensive when we (white people) try to understand it (or at least act like we do). Idk... its hard to explain. Like i don't want to be racist but I feel like i probably say stupid shit just because I don't know any better
once you are in a relationship with someone you really stop seeing their race and she can teach you about her life as a black woman
There is no problem with being racist because
1. All humans are innately racist to some extent
2. Niggers are subhuman
Speeeeeaking as a blaaaaaack person, blacks have no fucking culture. They rob, steal, and kill. They know nothing of art, except the "art" (if you could define such a thing as such) of gibsmedat.
Other blacks that don't do gibsmedat genuinely believe they "made it" all on their own. Hahaha don't forget your roots, nigger.
that may have been intentional for a slight comedic effect. I agree that it's irrelevant who you're attracted to and that if you're not interested in a certain group or race of people in a sexual/romantic way than that doesn't necessarily make you racist. However it's little things I do that really bother me, like if I see a black guy dressed like a "nigga" or "thug" then I immediately get intimidated by them. But then when I actually start talking to them a lot of them actually turn out to just be regular guys. Like I said before, I grew up in a family that used words like nigger and spic like it was nothing. I'm not necessarily trying to say that justifies my own racism but it probably contributed. So what should I do?
My racism towards other races isn't as prominent for some reason
I'm white but I think I can offer you some ideas.
First of all, is there anything about you that people point out alot? Maybe not, but imagine you have a funny walk or your teeth are crooked or something, or you're a red head, and all your life people point that shit out to you and make jokes about it. Even when they are just being nice it gets really annoying that all they associate you with is some physical trait and nothing else, like your personality, opinions, and actions don't exist, you're just the hurr durr guy with the red hair or whatever it is. They are constantly bantering you but never genuinely paying attention to who you are. Wouldn't that be irritating?
Anyways, while that is on the background of your mind, here are some other things that I have heard/read from actual black people.
1. First step to being less cringey about racism is to stop trying to be "colorblind". It is fine to notice that people around you are different races. It's part of their life experience and has played a role in shaping who they are and how they live in society. When you try to ignore it it comes across as fake and gay.
2. You don't need to wig out, feel like shit, or launch into defensive/explanation mode when you are called racist or told that something you said is racist. You can just apologize. It's not like you murdered someone. You were just rude in a specific way, you made someone feel uncomfortable, and all there really is to do is to say sorry.
Anyways, my suggestion is to just watch vlogs and stuff made by black people...For example if you are interested in travel you could look up a vlog of a black weeb living in nippon and over time you will realize they are just regular people with regular thoughts/feelings and who have a skin color that sometimes puts them in some different social situations than someone with white skin gets into.
I think it's more because the only other race around where I live besides whites are blacks. I'm sure if there were asians or mexicans or whatever I'd probably have some stupid views on them too. Also to be fair there's a lot of stuff white people do that stupid too. But for some reason it doesn't seem racist when I comment on those things
>They are constantly bantering you but never genuinely paying attention to who you are. Wouldn't that be irritating?
yeah that's a good point
>You were just rude in a specific way, you made someone feel uncomfortable
>you made someone feel uncomfortable
I'm not sure why, but that's actually like a huge insecurity of mine. Whenever I make someone feel like that I beat myself up so much I might as well have murdered someone, it kills me. I'll keep your other ideas in mind, thank you!
>I'll keep your other ideas in mind, thank you!
Sure :) I really recommend watching vids, like I mentioned. Subjecting yourself to a couple hours of really boring/mundane/nice/average/normie/funny black people talking about their hobbies and other inane stuff or joking around might rewire your brain's response to "Black People" and start breaking down those "Black people" vs "Normal people" categories you have developed.
Kinda like when I thought Mexicans were always talking shit about me in Spanish, then I learned Spanish and realized they are just talking about the same boring ass crap that anyone talks about.
>Can you recommend any good vlogs?
I dunno how 'good' these are but here are some random ones from channels I have subscribed to at some point:
I only saw this guy's channel for the first time today but he seems nice/funny. He does reaction vids. here's a reaction to a filthy frank video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sc5szUGfYXo
Laoshu is awesome, he is a polyglot. His vids are kinda long and weird, because he generally just wears a camera and walks around talking to people, but I really like his vids anyways: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqUdBquNons
here is Benny the Irish Polyglot doing a vid with Laoshu (Benny had better editing, easier to watch...) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITzFRlVhMVs

Girl who travels to different countries and comments specifically about being black in those countries: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjEm-KQpdSE
>Speeeeeaking as a blaaaaaack person
I believe you
>imagine your teeth are crooked or you're a redhead
>imagine there's something wrong with you that can completely be fixed vs being born black
I swear you faggots will never truly understand and that's fine, but the fact that you try and sit there and pretend like you do or that you know just irritates the fuck out of a lot of black people. Why try to pretend you know what the fuck you're talking about when you're white? Why must white people (not all, but majority) intrude into everything? It's a thread asking black people something and yet 80% of the posts ITT are from white people. Are the other 99 threads on this board so boring that you had to also come into this one?
Racism is all a matter of opinion. Racism isn't just some disease that you can just take medicine for and just automatically be cured of it m8. And dating a black chick won't automatically make you not racist. When you become intimate with a person and become close with them like that you may not see color anymore, but that's only when it comes to them. You'll still see every other black person as a "filthy nigger" regardless of who you're dating and their family.
The only way to change things is to change your views and opinions on black people. The only way I could suggest going about that is by being around more black people, which may or may not help. And for the record I don't mean just going to some random black neighborhood and screaming out "yo yo homie yo" I mean being around black people you have shit in common with, be it IRL or even online. But that's just what I think might help, I'm an autistic black virgin with no friends, so I may not be 100% right about this but in my opinion that's how I would go about things.
Hi there. The answer is nothing. Practice good judgement. You probably already do, the human mind is great at that. There is nothing wrong with categorizing people mentally at all, despite how much backlash there is against this simple fact of life.
Generally, you can tell everything you need to know about someone at a glance. The way they dress, the way they carry themselves, accent, facial structure, facial expression, mannerisms, where you are, all are pretty quick ways to find out what kind of persona a stranger has built for themselves. People generally will remain within a certain ego they have. They'll frame all interactions based on this, and react accordingly.
What culture or subculture they align with is largely indicative of how they will behave.
The only real problem would be if you try to shoehorn someone into some archetype they don't fit in even after you have evidence that its wrong.
But honestly, your brain picks up on tons of shit subconsciously. The way you feel about someone is probably justified.

Yeah, blackies are for pleasuring your wife, cuckies are for providing for her. This is how the family of the 21st century works.
Have you not been paying attention?
Blacks WANT you to separate them due to their special and important blackness.
The notion that we should be color blind is obviously not what they want.
