"As they say on XO, SELFPWNED!  You should wikipedia this term: "Sociology."  Moron.

What do I suggest you do?  I don't know.  Quit starting threads about wrong poo?

And listen, truthfully, I think that's cute about your kids.  I hope the same for mine."

Okay, I've already admitted that I might be naive and that I'm apparently no expert on the subject of race.  I also admit that I don't know anything about sociology.  I'm a moron and that's really too bad.

When I lived in China I didn't like their food, music, or holidays.  I liked my culture a lot more than I liked thiers. So am I racist after all?

And you know there is a difference between culture and race right?

People will always prefer the culture they are comfortable with, but that doesn't mean they will automatically judge people based on the color of their skin.  My whole point is that my children will evaluate others based on behavior.  

So what would you suggest I do?

something about baseless assumptions.

I'm confused.  Are you saying I should read a book about baseless assumptions?

Okay, I'm not going to read this thread, because it would just piss me off.  But the title of the thread is so unbelievably wrongheaded that I have to weigh in:  OP, you're a moron.  Big time.

I'm not even going to explain why, that's how stupid I think you are.  Read a book, jackass.

Thanks for that.  I'm a moron because I believe my children won't be racist.  I guess I'll go find a book called "Don't be a moron, jackass!"  That should help.

Sure, but it takes some degree of cognitive effort, which is different than the "ignore it and it will go away" approach you seemed to earlier advocate.

I'm not saying "ignore it and it will go away"
I'm saying that my children will probably not be influenced by race, so why do black churches have to insist on shoving "the white man is out to get you" down the throat of their patrons?
Do you think that makes blacks less racist?  no way.

That's a really interesting study, but I believe that a lot of that can be reveresed.
I lived in China for a few years. At first I had a terrible time distinguishing features, but over time people looked more and more unique.

My grandparents are far less racist than their parents were

according to whom?

According to my grandparents.  I guess it's possible they weren't less racist, but they definitely weren't as vocal about their racism.

My children are going to grow up with black cousins.  They are going to have access to television and the internet where there will be a mixture of faces.  They will have many different races represented in their schools. 
Everyone thinks I'm naive, but do you honestly believe that our children and grandchildren will be as racist as our parents?
The way we end racism is by choosing not to repeat the mistakes of those who came before us.
Unless, of course, you believe that racism is a natural human tendency.

I'm fluent in Mandarin Chinese. Do you think that would help me get a job in International Law?

I'd love to be an in house attorney for a hospital/group of hospitals.
I'd also consider Banking/Corporate law.

Law School Applications / Re: Multiple Seat Deposits?
« on: March 20, 2008, 01:36:28 PM »
My Current Front Runner requires the first seat deposit by April 15. What if I get accepted to the other two schools the first week in april?  Am I supposed to travel to 3 schools and make a decision in a week without sending more than one seat deposit?

I sent my apps in early december, they should cut me some slack.

Every poster in this thread is the actually the OP under different monikers.

I guess I'm just the puppy loving moniker that pretends racism doesn't exist because I'm too scared/lazy to deal with it.
