black and white
    #1886723 - 09/05/03 10:59 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Why are black and white people so different? Now, dont get me wrong, Im not racist, as more then half of my friends ive had in my life are black. I wait tables and see Alot of people every day. I have began to notice and profile different race's and types of people, as well as sex, age, ect. An oberservation I made was that black people are more down to earth. They always say something to fuck with me, or that makes me think about something, and learn something from them. White people: Very few are conversational, and I seldom learn from them..


dident mean to leave out the other races
asians: very polite and clean, and smart
europeans: sometimes rude, big eaters
thats all I can think of.
Any imput? :spliff:

generalizing people is a bad idea, not everyone is the same even if they are the same race. so many differnt people to see. so little time to do it.

I've found that how down to earth a lot of people are is cultural, not racial. In Southern California - the metropolitan L.A. area, where I grew up, there is probably the greatest percentage of shallow people in the world. If I go to more rural areas in California, more people are 'down to earth.' Likewise, from other more rural areas of the country. I have also encountered black people who were shallow, duplicitous, materialistic and are always 'profiling' - trying to impress with an air or attitude. However, wherever I have gone and spent some time getting to know various people, I have found that there is a spectrum of personalities. It is to my detriment to judge an individual on his/her race or area of geographic upbringing. In short, I look at people as individuals and try to not let previous experiences color my judgement.

i see, perhaps I should have said just for my area. generilzing for an entire race cant be right, when its only a small area that I am observing.

And they are only our own views from the experiences and observations with them that you have had.. Everyone looks at things differently than anyone else..
Peace.

" Everyone looks at things differently than anyone else.."

yesss the core reason (for me anyway) why we shouldn't really judge. :laugh:

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

While it's wrong to stereotype an individual because of his race, I hope we're not pretending there aren't certain traits and tendencies to races of people as a whole. They may be genetic or cultural, but they're there.

this is how most of us are (all races included) we steroetype each other and there is nothing wring with it, because there is a reason for the sterotype. i have found many sterotypes to be true,generalization is not a bad thing in my view, jus because i have a preconcieved notion on someone based on race doesnt mean that i cant be wrong. and i like to be awrong about that kind of thing. this doesnt mean that "oh your black your're gonna rob my house", this just means that until i further kno the person this option is open, not to say that an asian couldnt rob my house, but this is the generalized view. think of it as a defense mechanism, you dont expect your kinsmen to do wrong onto you by nature, unless you come from an untrustworthy race. I choose my friends and such if they are cool, regardless, not because of their race. but i have also had some experiences along the lines of 2Experimental (diffrent results).im not racist about it just untrusting of everyone. and so should everyone else

I have to agree that our differences are cultural rather than racial. It's just an unfortunate tendancy of ours to aggregate with those who look most similar to ourselves. I suppose it's a childish paranoia that will eventually work itself out of the collective attitude of humanity.

Culture is the LEARNED patterns of belief and behavior of humans.
Many people mistakenly believe a direct relationship exists between race and culture. Races are groupings of human beings based on perceived or believed biological differences. Races are not groupings that exist in the natural order of things, but arbitrary and artifical cultural creations (catagories of people) that have nothing to do with cultural ability or identification.
As people create races for whatever purpose, they inevitibly attribute culture to them as well.
