    Racism doesn't exist, except black on white, of course.

    And the fact that numerous adds on Katrina housing sites - where people offering their homes up to evacuees can post - say "white only"


    The following are found in the NOLA.com housing section.





    Oh this one "prefers" she not get a blackie, but if that's all you got, oh well!

    "Would love to take a child, either girl or boy who is an orphan, to give them a new home & love. Would prefer white or hispanic, but won't say no to any child. Have any 8 year old daughter,who wants to be an older sister !!!!!"



    This one likes pets, but not blacks!

    "Free studio apartment for the right Katrina victom. Relocate to SE NC. Detached studio apartment. Close to beach, good job opportunity, good hunting and fishing. Free rent up to 6 months for the right person. White male or couple prefered. Cable, water, trash, power included. Pet negotiable."




    Hope you're white!

    "One bedroom apartment rent free for the right Katrina victom in Southeastern NC. Close to beach. Single white male, or couple preferred. Someone who likes to hunt or fish a plus. Good fishing and hunting close by. Will also help find job. Smoker ok, pets negotiable. If you want more info let me know."


    Oh he's not racist - his landlord is! Sure!

    "Space available in Baton Rouge for 2-3 white males ages 20-45. (I'm not prejudiced, but will lose my apartment otherwise! So please do not complain.) Smoking outside OK. Will help find work or school and permanent place to live."

    Spiderman. Seriously, do you ever think racism will completely dissappear? OF course not.

    If you want to truly gauge how America stands, you have to compare our current situation with our past, and with other countries. Are we better than we were , say 20 years ago. YES!

    Are we less racists than other countries? YES! (If you doubt that, get out and travel some, trust me, I have flown transcontinental 10 times in the last two years and am leaving again on the 18th-Hey, I gotta give Nightmarish a break! :) )

    Fact is, its about as good as its gonna get. The one single biggest factor the black community could do to lessen racism at this point is to "get with the program".

    They have a choice, become more and more mainstream America, or retain their seperate identity. You cant have it both ways. If they wish to hold onto their seperate identity, i.e. black culture, then those whom they are seperating themselves from, will respect their wishes.

    I really can understand if a lady who is in her fifties would be fearful of a young black guy showing up in baggie pants, lots of bling, and talking street talk with a car stereo that will "rock her out of bed in the morning".

    Now, Im sure if a "Larry Elder" showed up, she would probably reconsider, and rent to them, but hey, we do get our impressions from MTV dont we?

    I agree. The Institutional racism is long gone from American society. The government can encourage integration through education and public policy. But there is no way the government would be able to force people to believe racism is wrong if they dont want to believe it.

    I also agree that one of the ways racism could end is if the black culture more fully integrated with the rest of American culture. Interestingly enough African Immigrants dont have any problem integrating or succeeding in America. Mainly because they arent products of the culture that everyone is out to get them.

    racisim, interesting, i do not see a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race....being articulated in these adds

    i see the practice, or an instance of discriminating categorically rather than individually.

    on line dictonary search tools are cool....

    Imagine that - people actually expressing preferences as to who stays in their homes with them. Those BASTARDS!

    How about putting your money where your mouth is, Spiderman? Where's YOUR ad?
