    Seeing race and seeming racist? Whites go out of their way to avoid talking about race
    Efforts to appear unbiased lead to misunderstandings between the races, studies find


    WASHINGTON – White people – including children as young as 10 -- may avoid talking about race so as not to appear prejudiced, according to new research. But that approach often backfires as blacks tend to view this "colorblind" approach as evidence of prejudice, especially when race is clearly relevant.

    In other words, the massive effort to be "sensitive" on race leads to the same problems as being honest about it!

    In other words, we can't win! Races just aren't ever going to get along!

    Guess what? It's because they weren't ever MEANT TO TO BEGIN WITH!

    Ladies and gents, it's time for the races to get a divorce.

    seems pretty reasonable to me---- I was in a crowd once looking for a person who I hadn't met yet. NO ONE would tell me he was black when I asked for a description of him. How stupid can we get ?

    I'm sorry, were you trying to formulate an argument?

    Isn't it rather racist to poll only white people to see how many of them talk about race? Or is there a documented study on this that you have failed to post?

    What I think is, idiots will make something of race whether there's anything of substance or not.

    Doesn't surprise me a bit that it has allegedly "backfired" though. Rather, it just reinforces my point.

    Whites don't talk about race because blacks raised Holy Hell about whites talking about race. So the PC, goody-two-shoes appeasing wimps decide to not mention it, but THAT's not good enough.

    Tell me, Ass ... WHAT is good enough for haters like you? Having a hard time with that one? Let me help ...

    NOTHING is nor will it ever be good enough for people like you because it would take away your excuses, it would take away your reason(s) to hate, and mostly, it would make you shut up running your ignorant, hateful suck.

    In other words, YOU would be out of business. Can't have THAT, now can we?

    Against a brick wall? Wouldn't dream of it. Just figured if there was a crack somewhere in that wall, something might seep through.

    Gunny with another personal attack on the Bass, imitating the negative ad campaign of his Republican pundits. You proved the accuracy of this study with your guilt ridden response.

    Yes I think some black people can be racist towards white people and some black people will even admit this. But what real cause does their racism really have compared to our racism. Even when we were are the minority group in terms of numbers we will still control the work place along with other institutions and be the dominate group.
    By our racism still to this day we are denying them the same access we have to social stratification.
