Sex offenders are typically men. Large scale terrorists are typically Muslim. People who loot stores during a natural disaster are typically black. Racists are typically southern. None of these behaviors are excusable. We are all presented with information that indicates these things to be true. It’s up to us to think objectively. The ability to do that seems beyond the capacity of many in this group.

In response to a confession. I’m not making assumptions about you based on what the behaviors I witnessed in Indiana and the fact they elected Pence. I don’t know you. Does everybody see how that works?

Perhaps many of you are in it for the sashes.

In response to a confession. Here’s what you apparently don’t get. I’m not defending a group, I’m defending one user who was rightfully offended by being lumped in with a group. It would be dumb not to see that. Someone said their post was full of racist innuendos because they were matter of fact in pointing out the obvious.... that if it were a negative statement about something indicative of another group, people would freak out. Trying to deny that would be dumb.

People are individuals. If you can’t see people as individuals, you are prejudiced.

In response to a confession. Yeah, talking shit about racists is good..... when you actually know that person is a racist. Lumping EVERYONE into one category is bad.... and the initial category this “poor defenseless group” (not my words) was being placed In wasn’t even about racism. It was about them having an undesirable personality trait. Now everyone decides to jump on board and be like “Well, this group is notorious for being racist, even though we don’t know which individuals are, we can use this to attack a user’s personality.” I do view this as entertainment. I think it would be pretty pathetic to view it as anything else.

In response to a confession. Hoosier here, who's also spent a significant amount of time in the south. There's absolutely racism in both places, but it's so different up north. People can still be pretty brazen with their racist comments, but attitudes are different here. More often than not, if someone says something racist or homophobic, it's when they're with their family or friends. It isn't seen as normal public behavior. In the southern states I've been to, people are just super casual about racism, like it's a part of their daily routine. Growing up in Indiana, I'd never heard the n word used in real life until I visited a grocery store in Pensacola. My poor mom had a hell of a time explaining to me that it's different there and that it's never okay to use that word. I was probably about 8 or 9. Before that, I'd only heard it in movies. I've learned to expect it now, when I visit the south.

In response to a confession. This poor, defenseless group of people you're defending are notorious for being racists. For the last time, talking shit about racists is good. Talking shit about marginalized groups of people is bad. I think you're just saying shit to get people worked up. Nobody is this dumb.

In response to a confession. What?! I believe you..... but, WHAT?! I’ve never been to Texas..... but..... what?! Again, I believe you, but I’ve honestly encountered more racists in northern states(one of them being Indiana which makes sense. They elected Pence) I’ve never seen ANYTHING like that..... my god!

I'm the one who posted about being from the northeast and now living in the south. Just to clarify what I meant by more racist down south. I live in Texas. When I moved here, there were schools that still had segregated proms. There were restaurants that still had "Whites Only" signs in the window. And this wasn't 100 years ago, this was like 20 years ago. Yes, racist jerks exists everywhere. But the gov't here didn't step in and say, " You can't do that." No elected official was outraged. Those restaurants didn't go out of business because people protested or refused to do business with them. That would have never flown in the north. But it was just business as usual here. And most people didn't see the problem because these things don't make you racist in their view.
