"Believe me, America has nothing on racism."

I think when it comes to Equal Opportunity laws, etc, etc, you're spot on. Socially (and legally) it's accepted or tolerated a lot more around the world than it is here. On an individual level though, I'd say it's just as bad here as it is in most other countries. Main difference being that it's illegal to practice it in the workplace here and it's not acceptable public behavior.

"If the world was as racist as America. Our planet would be a perfect place."

Not really because America still has some extremely racist tendencies. But you're point is still understood. If the rest of the world had anti-discrimination laws that were on par with the US, then the world would be a better place would probably be a better way of putting it. :-)

"That was well said luvrman, your always so polite, yet you get your point a crossed. Usually with bigger words than I use but I guess that shows how well educated you are. Which is one of the many things I enjoy about you. Speaking of educating, which was mentioned in a previous post, anyone who is on SLS shouldn't need an education on Racism. If your a swinger, Racism shouldn't even be in your thoughts or vocabulary and if it is, this isn't the lifestyle for you. :)" ----

Thanks Sassy, Agreed, I couldn't have said it better.

Aquite a while ago I heard David Sedaris' great monologue about Christmas in other countries called "6-8 black men" Omg I almost peed myself listening. ( btw great story-- you can read it , but no one can tell it like David Sedaris.)

Well anyway, when he tells the story about 6-8 black' scandinavians, you assume the visual from most people here in the states is someone of African descent. But strangely enough, I found out later (from someone who WAS a "black" Scandinavian) that calling someone a black there just stems from discrimination/racism against the darker tribes of Scandinavian peoples who were dark, not blonde.

Crazy wild.

None of what I am saying is intended to make an excuse for anyone here being racist.

But I take strong exception to those (and there are MANY) who make the claim that racism is largely an American phenomenon. Complete and total bullshit.

What Va said.

In The UK there is a saying:

Antisemitism is when you hate Jews too much.

and, while I realize that "castism" (?) is not the same as "racism", it's still bigotry against people's ancestry.

Bobby's a funny guy. And the inspiration for our current tag line.

As for racism around the world...

Mrs. VA's father's family are Lebanese. HOLY SHIT do they have awful things to say about people from certain countries. Worse than anything you'd hear on the street.

I worked with a guy from India. He came from a wealthy family that owned an enormous plantation. He explained to me about how they kept people from the lower castes in check, by spontaneously kicking them and spitting on them to prevent them from forgetting who they were (the "Untouchables")

Ask British people how they feel about all of the 'brown people' that have 'taken over' their towns. Ask French people about how they feel about anyone who is not 10+ generations French.

Umm civil disobedience doesn't always work. Plenty (think millions) of racists who use civil disobedience to advance a racist agenda. Racism and bigotry is ingrained in people. In my experience, very very few are not.
