What Happens When A Black Man Brings His White Girlfriend Into A Harlem Barbershop? [Watch]

HEY

What happens when a black man brings his white girlfriend into a barbershop in Harlem? The video showing how people reacted to this stereotyping scenario might surprise you.

In the video, several men and women react to racist hairdresser’s attempts to intimidate and humiliate a young girl because of the color of her skin.

In an episode of “What Would You Do”, three actors play out a racist scene in Denny Moe’s, a Harlem barbershop.

One actress portrays a hairdresser who bashes a man’s girlfriend because of her differing ethnicity. The show gauged real customers’ reactions as the hairdresser repeatedly criticizes the girl in a racist rant.

Some customers sat quietly, allowing the racism to continue, but others took a stand against the hatred.

    Harlem, ok…

    Try this in some Florida neighborhoods or Detroit.

    With all the hatred that I grew up to and grew up in….that honestly broke my heart and made me sit here and cry. It will never get you anywhere in life and only makes things worse I would rather us be friends just smile, laugh and be happy. I’m here for you and it feels good for me to know you would help me. -August B.Kreis IV

  • Mike

    Brought tears to my eyes

  • Glenn Martin

    This lady is so right and it makes me feel good to see people standing up to wrong things. People are people no matter the skin color!

  • Steve A. Cobb

    At the very least there is some sign of hope.

  • Bill Berger

    Very, very, touching. And, lest I forget, humbling.

  • Johna_hale

    Me too, very moving

  • John J Coltrain

    How many hours of footage did they not show? If you don’t believe the lamestream media you shouldn’t believe this crock!

  • josaphine68

    So…..you guys are all OK with multi-culti Kumbaya and white girls dating and procreating with black men until the white race is all gone? You know whites are becoming a minority, maybe by 2020? Just curious. This sounds like anti-white Cultural Marxist propaganda to me.

  • Strek

    There is nothing wrong with a multi-racial couple. Nothing at all.

    If whites are becoming a minority, it is because we’ve stopped breeding. Not because a small percentage of whites choose to have partners of a different race.

    You’re letting the KKK creep into your ideology there.

  • paul

    If more people would react this way racism would be a thing of the past

  • philipdickman

    As a nation we should stand together. There are good people that’s what makes this country.

  • Thomas

    Sounds like someone is stuck in the 60′s. We’re in 2013. You don’t have to be afraid of another race, because they are not like you and you don’t understand them. Many great Americans of every race fought hard to bring equality to everyone, even white people. When you promote racism the way you do, then you spit on the face of all those people. You need to take a deep look inside yourself find out why you fear and hate other races.

  • Kage

    Yes, actually I am. Because if you were blind you wouldn’t know the difference between a white girl and a black girl.

    Humans. That is what we all are, regardless of skin color. And the sooner that we all share the same skin, the sooner we progress toward a future of peace.

    Why does your skin make you anything other than human? That’s the question you need to ask and answer, because at the end of the day. You can take every body part a black man has and give it to a white man, then and the only that makes them different is the color of their skin.

  • JK

    You’re a freakin’ idiot and a big part of what’s wrong with the world today!

  • JK

    There’s only one race…the HUMAN race!

    Whoah! This is great. Racism is dying!!! We are moving beyond it finally. Wisdom and understanding is here.

  • chacocanyon

    That was so cool! A human being standing up for another human being. That makes me feel good about the human race. Wonderful people!

  • Charisse A Hill

    Exactly.

  • Tobby Smith

    It doesn’t matter how much footage they DIDNT show. what matters is that someone DID stand up and said something….
    I used to be like that, I hated people because of the color of their skin.. and then one day i woke up and relized just how stupid I was. I also noticed that it was the people I have surrounded myself with that helped me think like that…I am so thankful that those days are behind me and gone. NOW I can move forward….

  • Thefind

    Go Denise! My faith in mankind is restored!

  • Christopher Scott Knell

    +1 Tobby. Well said.

  • linda

    in a way its really the other way around if you really think about it the black race is disappear as the white will grow in time because men of all races including white men love the white women maybe it fear what the black women feel,

  • james_mckinney

    Loved this…this video was such a great way to show how we should see life. IF we stop seeing race and just start seeing each other as fellow human beings, we can propel our species so far so fast that…who knows what might happen in the future.

  • Adam

    I like seeing bits of this show, sadly we dont have it in Australia… But i wonder, just how much footage they dont show…

  • musaxeman

    The Bottom Line Here Is, YES, we all should “get over”, all this Hatred. What happened to us, within the American Experience, happened a long time ago. Why should we be bashing each other over this?? Because some people need something to blame??–Or because some people still think it is 160 years ago, and that head setting is still alive??– Sure we can’t get along, for a variety of reasons, But it is up to EACH of us to be Smarter. Ya, that is Easy to say, as Many wounds have yet to heal for some. However, the days of the slaves are Long Gone. Could Any of us Imagine how Cool it would be, if we All acted like Americans???—Not Afro-Americans, Not Euro-Americans, Not Asian-Americans, Not Native-Americans, Not Arab-Americans, etc., & so on & so forth???—The day will come, SOON, that we will ALL have to band together, in order to Save our Country.—America is the Biggest Experiment the world has ever known, give anybody a chance to go to another country, and where do they want to go???—AMERICA!!!—Let’s Not Blow-It,—Let’s get along-stick together-and treat eachother with respect!!!

    I’m very ok with it. We’re human beings first. -White guy

  • Bette

    Until you rid yourself of hatred, you’ll never understand what it’s like to love and respect other races. How small and limited your world is. Do you have the results of a scientific study to prove your theory on the white race becoming a minority? If it is true, so what?

  • sandra marie

    John you are the reason it keeps going on…did your heart NOT open up..very sad for you…it starts with one person… break the chain!!!!

  • johncv66

    this is really cool. and that last woman aint just an hr woman. she should be a motivational speaker. strong and powerful

  • Jason Lewis

    “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

    We are all struggling, it’s about who you want to let help you up.

  • Jason Lewis

    Yes because Harlem is Disneyland…ignorant troll.

  • John Crocker Jr.

    We have to stand.together. we are all equal. We have to stop letting Media and government push this issue on the people. They are turning us all against each other. Its going to get worse. Wake up and focus on where this is coming from.

  • WisdomSeed

    That is pretty much how black people are. If the situation were reversed, how many white men would have said anything? Well we can take comfort in the fact that more white men would today than yesterday.

  • Nur Alia binti Ahmad

    Even if I were defending the White woman overtly, as soon as she said ‘we have a Black president’, I would have stopped.

    That is the common answer with Europeans in general when you point out institutional discrimination. They seem to always bring up the exceptions to prove there is no such thing.

    I was on her side, until she said that.

  • Dot McFarlane

    A supervisor at my former place of employment acted this way. She was a black person who told a white co-worker that she had no business dating a black man. There’d been numerous complaints about her before this incident but this was the final straw and she was fired that same day!!

  • Robert H. Gwinn

    A young black man, at the store the other day called me a cracker. Maybe I am but I would never stoop to making a racial slur at him. If those who preach equality with act with dignity, then we can move forward and not have these ridiculous, and out dated prejudices.

  • Mariana

    Love this! It is truly inspiring! I hope everyone sees the real message, that there is never a reason for racism. Everyone is equal& one person at a time can change someone for the better.

  • Nick Monterosso

    You know it is funny how everyone thinks all white people are racist against black people but its only about 5-12% of the white population. Now what most of you don’t know is 80-95% of the Black population is racist against white people, but it’s ok for them because 200+ years ago they were slaves right?.

  • Robert Jackson

    Ha I am having a little more faith in America now.

  • Lauren Rath

    I liked that.

  • Jeromy

    this is cool, but what about the clips they didnt show. lol i would love to see those. lol I think we all as humans should be humans. this race thing is bs. we all need to stop even looking at color. if im blue, im a smurf. but that doesnt mean i dont have feelings. but it would be funny to see the bad clips.lol

  • Tony

    According to what statistics? Out of your ass?

  • reverseracism

    Have they done this with the reverse? If not they should and see how big the difference is.

  • lonestar

    I was thinking the same thing.

  • Kel

    This is a great video…but if this were a black woman with a white man…I think everything here would be different.

  • Wendy perryman

    Seems great! But Incase you don’t believe it the reality is that more white people are racists than blacks. How many of you would have defended her if she were black?? (Implying that you’re white). Be honest.

  • kel

    I Absolutely agree.

  • OBX

    As a young white female, I can honestly say, no matter what the gender/race/religion/whatever it may be that was being attacked, I would ALWAYS say something. I would NEVER sit passively by and witness anyone being treated like that and not come to their aid. Not.Ever.

  • maryohio

    I think the majority of American would react the way these Americans did. Now if only we could get John Quinones to videotape someone taking down Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and other Hate Mongers, whose livelihood DEPENDS on dividing our country.

  • Bree

    fear??..lol..i think its the other way around..thats why the show scandal is hated amongst white women..its not that deep..I say everyone should be swirlers..date whoever whenever..you are spending too much time wondering who’s dating who..when you should be getting your swirl on..lol..get you some black D or asian or hispanic..or German..afterwards maybe you wont be so ignorant and insecure..

  • Bishop Johnson

    horseshit scripted

  • Sammy Lane

    We as people are getting there,but hate keeps on reforming it self now it is about same sex marriages.

  • Brian Thompson

    Much of our hate regardless of race is anger of money issues. Our economy sucks, people just are not happy anymore so HATE is what everyone is resorting too.

  • Josh Cantrell

    Hatred is not taking a step forward but two steps back.

  • JJ

    I am a white woman and I’ve stepped in and defended both black and hispanic women on different occasions, and I know that of the friends I keep, most of them would do the same. I like to hope that it’s not all that uncommon. There is plenty wrong in the world, I know, but don’t denigrate the good solely because there is still bad.

  • Brian Thompson

    We are all people, want and expect respect. Just how different do you think it would be?

  • Shawn

    I have stood up for people of different skin tones, and religions. When I was the Marines, I had friends from different backgrounds, it’s the things you have in common that draws you together. I see racism from all skin tones, makes me sad, everyone seems to thing that everyone else is worse than “their team”. We’re all from the human race, and we are all Americans, start acting like it.

  • ally

    I have been abused by many Aboriginal/Islander/Africans at my work just because the colour of my skin. I’ve done nothing wrong but greet them the way I do with all my customers, but I cop abuse. I get called all sorts of names, just for having white skin. I do not respond in kind, and would gladly defend anyone of any race who is being discriminated against in this manner. I see many interracial couples, and applaud them (figuratively speaking) for finding love.

  • Ken Cooper

    i glad to see were acting as human beings not as race or color people can love date fall in love with who ever they want to and thats truely no bodys bussiness

  • Roz Dotson

    where do you live WisomeSeed?

  • Roz Dotson

    because this was staged i’m sure the footage of the operator getting yelled at and called names was not shown…only the nice stuff…this is not representative of Harlem. it’s too multicultural for anything like that to happen…i’m sure most were thinking “this has to be a tv show or something!”

  • Roz Dotson

    yea…we hope to procreate until minds like yours are totally eradicated.

  • Gazamon

    A bloodclot any racist fool.

  • Roz Dotson

    WRONG!

  • Gazamon

    Pure fukery

  • Roz Dotson

    in this instance i totally agree because this is NOT a valid picture of Harlem…people just DON’T talk like that in a public setting…Harlem like most neighborhoods in NYC is very multicultural and interracial. this was staged and i feel that every one in that shop was in SHOCK…it is wrong to create an image of Harlem as a place where the girlfriend would have been so insulted …it is NOT REAL! i’m also sure most of the well meaning commentors are NOT from NYC. as a New Yorker one would know this just doesn’t happen even in a predominently black establishment…there’s always at least one white person around…LOL

  • Gazamon

    Suck yah mudda, racist.

  • Gazamon

    Amen

    This, this, is part of why I still have hope for our country. If they can stand up for another human, not a white girl or a black girl, but just another human, there is still hope. :)

    ya, it would be cool to see the ones where everyone snaps

  • Ambriorix_Le_Belge

    Few more people like this would make the world a better place. Give me genuine uniters like the last person over dividers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson any day

  • kanenas101

    True… especially when one considers that the color of the president’s skin was a factor in many peoples’ decision to elect and re-elect him.

  • kanenas101

    As a whitey myself I could never bring myself to devolve to some kind of animal that goes crazy and insane when I hear a certain word, in this case, “cracker.”

    Why some people choose to give certain words that kind of power over them I will never know.

    I went to 7-11 once and this older black man was standing outside, yelling at me for being white and blaming me for slavery. I was 27 at the time, and I am first generation American. Parents are Russian. It exists, its stupid… but it exists.

  • http://ostrovletania.blogspot.com/ Andrea Ostrov Letania

    The white girl went with a black guy because she thinks black men are racially-sexually superior to white men. Lots of white women think black men have harder muscles, bigger penises, and more masculine voices than white guys do, and so they play race-traitor. Interracism is a form of race-ism. White women who ‘go black’ are not going beyond race but consciously deciding that black men are SUPERIOR to white males who are comparatively seen as slow, wussy, and flabby.

    Indeed, why is there far more sex between white girls and black guys than between white guys and black girls?

    It’s because black men find white girls to be prettier than black girls and because white girls find black males to be racially-sexually superior to slow, flabby, and dweeby white boys.

    Powerful video.

  • Dennis Griffin

    This is truly a great story/video. Serious thinking moments for me. Thanks! Made me consider some of my opinions that were narrow minded in this society.

  • Jenny

    LOVE IT! But I wonder if you reversed it…would white people be as willing to stand up and say something?

  • Jenny

    Not all white people are good, but they’re not all bad, no different than anyone else.

  • Michael C. LaMay

    Never should a person be judged because of the color of their skin, nor for where they are born. These are two things a person has no control over. It is what comes from the inside of a person’s heart that we judge them for. I will continue to hate racists, no matter the color of their skin, but before I judge a person to be a racist, I must see it with my own eyes. I have seen racists from all colors of skin, not just white people. I have been hated upon for being Native American, yet I have friends of many colors. Do not assume that just because a person is of a certain color, that they have been the one to hurt you, your race, or anything else. You cannot make an intelligent judgement just by seeing how a person looks, but the first words and actions that a person makes, will leave a lasting impression.

  • Brian Churchill

    I have watched many episodes of this show. They have never been shy about showing the customers behaving badly in these skits they set up. I live in Georgia and there are still ignorant people who show their ass in public over a white woman and black man. They are both white and black and I crawl their asses.

  • Dora flores

    So sad, glad you LOVE IT, but you totally missed the entire point with your very next sentence. Yes you reminded me too quick that there still is ignorance even in the presence of love.

  • Jeff Herndon

    down here in the south if a black girl was in a shop with a whit man and a white girl was to do that to her i can tell you that the white girl will be cut down so fast that her head will spin one thing people don’t understand about the south is we don’t look at color as much as we look at how you act

  • Nancy Glass

    God bless people who stand up for others!

  • John J Coltrain

    Right…..maybe they’ll even invite you to play a game of knock out Sandra!

  • John J Coltrain

    I don’t hate anyone, I just avoid and don’t associate…..the numbers drive my decisions. After 3 years of living in Baltimore I’ve seen all I need to see.

  • Ama Rosa

    Funny thing is how many places would have done the opposite and joined right in? Notice any series on TV these days? Watch Law and Order and see how a black man is wrongly accused and the perp ends up being white. Or any comedy where the white dad is a dufus and the wife is the head of the house but his best friend is a black rocket scientist. I have nothing against blacks but how about being not so sensitive and act like they portray you on TV while in the hood.

  • wcurtispreston

    If you’ve ever watched the show, they do this kind of thing all the time, and yes, they do it in reverse. They test all sorts of “what would you do” scenarios. I can remember them having a person break into another person’s car in front of other people, or cut a bike chain in front of other people. Short version of this one? If you want to do either of those things, don’t be black. You’ll get stopped 90% of the time. If you’re white, it’s about 50%. If you’re a white femaie, you will actually get people to help you. No kidding. ;)

  • Marianne

    I was born in Brooklyn and my mom always told us blood runs red in everyone.When God put us hear he did not see color he saw ppl.We all bleed the same hurt the same love the same.We need to stand together not apart HATE comes from everywhere Fat Skinny White Black Money No money.Everyone can hate but it does nothing for the soul.Past is past we as ppl have so much to go through everyday just to stay above water.There is to much Hate all over the world.We should not stand for that.Speek up when you see hate,change it when you can A Big Smile to anyone will make anyone smile and then someone will smile back and so on and so on.Some say it can not be done Just try it Smile at someone you never saw b4.I BET they smile back.I dare you.Have a Merry Christmas,And smile all year.

  • Guest

    Because I question weather it would go both ways don’t make me ignorant, it makes me realistic. I’m aware that racism isn’t dead regardless of my wish for it to be. I’m sorry you view honesty as ignorance. That is your ignorance not mine.

  • Jenny

    Because I question if it would go both ways doesn’t make me ignorant. Unfortunately there are many people, including whites, that feel they are better than others based on only the color of their skin. The ability to see that doesn’t make me ignorant. Your inability does. I wish it were different but it’s not. It’s better than it used to be but still has a long way to go.
    Love knows no color, to bad the same can’t be said for people.

  • goober III

    the only ppl i know that are blatantly racist are blacks

  • Edward

    The Euro-born Americans had problems among each other when first arriving here too. Nowadays, there aren’t two many places in America where the Irish and Italians are ruthlessly antagonizing each other anymore. They adjusted well. Keep faith.We can’t move forward as a nation and a world if we’re fractured internally.

  • mike

    why didn’t the BOYFRIEND do anything? Glad to see that SOME people stand up for each other no matter of skin especially the lady with the Kid next to her so he doesn’t grow up with the hatred also> It amazes me on those “knockout” games the blacks do and hit others, how people just stand there and walk around the person on the ground….

    Don’t also forget people vote based on which party the candidate is associated with without even hearing what they have to say.

  • dale

    NIce to see someone stand up. As a white man who has worked in DC and Baltimore extensively it gives one hope. I understand the black race has been hurt, but now it is up to all of us to rectify this and let the young ones know to kick the crutch out from under their arms. Don’t teach the hatred. Hatred begets more hatred and the problem persists. Lend one another a hand. We all have stories, trials and tribulations and if we just open our minds and hearts we could make this a better world. I bet many would be surprised if their DNA were checked, that they may have some other blood in them. Like the white supremecist guy. now that was funny). Make a difference man. Stop the hate. You will feel better and help make the permanent change. You can’t stop it. Interracial is common and the blacks and whites will be here together as long as God decides. Teach positive messages and see the result. We are all the same except on the outside! I have experienced racism against me in these cities but it makes me only more determined to see this all changes.One step at a time. Don’t judge entire races on the ignorance and attitudes of a few. The whites had to support black rights to get this far and there still is a long way to go. We do have a black president after all. See pictures of Martin Luther King’s marches. See the colors in the photos. We are one. Divisiveness only perpetuates the issues. People are people, lend a hand!

  • nucksfan

    I think its more about just Hating, some people need to hate anyone not them, just to feel better about them self.

  • Tom Black

    I love what I saw in this clip. It brings my spirit up so much! However, why didn’t they call it what it was, racism? They called it hate and bigotry. It was a racism test. Until blacks will label each other as racists, they are, whether they know it or not, perpetuating the idea that only whites can be racists. That, in and of itself, is a racist tenant.

  • Carmen

    THIS.

  • dale

    Wisdom, I believe you would be very surprised by how many white people would have sprung into action. Those are fighting words to many of us

  • Ricky

    AMEN… Let racism be an historical word of the past. I am a white male who was taught by parents that to respect everyone’s life is the key to peace of the heart. I take my hat off to those people who stood up and said something in the video. I wish I could meet them in person to show them my appreciation for their fight against racism and hatred. We are TEAM U (Union) against racism and hatred.

  • dale

    Oh Michael if only that were true on both sides. can u imagine what the us would be like? There were ethnic slaves throughout America’s evolution many white as well. The past is gone, we ned to focus positive energy and efforts on the future and spreading love not hate.Life is too short and one robs themselves of their time here spending it mired in hatred.

  • Anon

    Racism can never be a thing of the past, to remove racism you have to remove all judgement. People will always judge because of their life experiences, not to mention the government and the media race bait daily, plus they promote conflict, pitting against republicans and democrats and forcing separation when we are all the same. You have to think both republicans and democrats both want the same thing(Big government). Its not racism we need to get rid of its just tolerance for differences. Everyone will be different forever and always, and some will forever and always not always like what differences people have, but if we build our tolerance, we can live and tolerate differences of all kinds and live together in harmony. People today are too sensitive and that’s why people get hurt. People need to understand that we are different. The prejudice I speak of doesn’t just have to do with race, its EVERYTHING. Example, have you ever heard people argue over cars, people who like Ford are tought and people who like chevy are pansies. Or cat people are crazy, dog people are slobs. Everyone has these preconceived notions that dictate what we do or say, we need to stop looking at one thing at a time and look at everything at once. We don’t have a racism issue we have a tolerance issue

  • John J Coltrain

    LOL….ok Frank, keep telling yourself that. You don’t need the media, just look it up on youtube and worldstarhiphop.com

  • OzCop

    So, all the videos we keep seeing, the retaliation by gun…all that is made up by the media…if so, media folks responsible need to be charged, tried, and if convicted, do some jail time…Sorry Frank, you obviously don’t get it. The people in this video DO get it, and that gives me hope that more and more people will come to realize it’s not the color of one’s skin, it’s the hatred in their heart, black, white, or otherwise. Both YOU and JOHN need to get a clue…

  • malt

    I want to see footage on the reverse situation.: Black Girl in a White barabershop w/ White boyfriend.

  • OzCop

    Absolutely…they, and others like them, feed the flames of racism much more deeply than the average American, black or white…When the world is rid of these folks, perhaps we will see a different America…until then, the best thing anyone can do is ignore them…as stated, their livlihood depends on keeping the pot stirred…

  • Šárka Michael

    Awesome, the world would be a much better place for all of us if we could ALL feel this way :)

  • OzCop

    Why does it matter where this took place? This scenario could have been played out in any American city, large or small. The point is that someone did speak up, and in my opinion that is a positive beginning…

  • TJ And-Alexa Hunter

    I wouldnt go THAT far but its an improvement for sure!

  • RayCharles

    Stop believing everything you see in the media represents an entire group. When I see a white boy has done a mass killing in the news I dont say, “Those mass killings that white boys do” I have NEVER heard of or seen any “knock out” game it is media hype and likely represents isolated incidents. In fact the first reported “victim was proven to have lied she was hit in the face by her boyfriend. Do you want to be blamed for everything, every white man does? If so, why don’t YOU do something about white men knocking their girlfriends in the face? See how ridiculous that sounds?

  • John J Coltrain

    No hate hear pal……I don’t associate or participate with them. Believe what you want and I’ll do the same. I’m sure I’ll miss out on so very much by not playing along with the multi/culti/kumbaya bullsh!t being forced upon a once great nation.

    As the only white couple for as far as the eye could see, my wife and I were walking around Harlem in the 1980s. While simply walking across the street, one elderly black gentleman, who was crossing our path, said out loud, and with much love: “Welcome to Harlem!”

  • Ray

    I was called a nigger every day my first year at a predominantly white high school, I am Bajan, but my skin is Black. What’s your point? That man was crazy and so were the ten to fifteen kids who terrorized me.

  • OzCop

    Conversely Jenny, not all black people are good, but they are not all bad…no difference than anyone else…but is that the point here? Stop and think about what makes us good or bad…most often it is the people we surround ourselves with, especially in our formative years…then there is the outside influences such as white hate groups and black hate groups/spokesmen, ala Jessie Jackson, etc. But there are whites who try and stir the pot against blacks also…But the largest pot stirrer of all…The Media…they just can’t help themselves but to distrute whatever they think will sell news and that involves controversy, color be damned…When they choose a side is when it really gets interesting…

    The day every stops Hating that will be the day of peace. Sad thing is… there’s always and I mean ALWAYS gonna be haters.

    that wouldn’t be “must see tv” so I doubt you’ll ever see it…….it would be a nonevent

  • OzCop

    We should all shed a few tears given scenarios such as this. Racism, biasis, etc have no place in a modern America, regardless of skin color…there are those who think racism can only be displayed by whites, but that is far from the truth…Racism is racism, regardless of skin color…

    They did show people avoiding the issue altogether. A couple of people said they didn’t want to get involved, didn’t think it was their business and so they kept quiet. I found the experiment to be very moving.

    The Human Resource specialist really stood apart from the others in her inspirational , positively empowering approach. Very constructive and truly affirming . We need more people like that. I could see her psychology training kicking in. Kudos to all the people that spoke up. United we stand , Divided we fall.

  • Sue Townsend Walters

    these are good people to stand up. but I truly believe our own president is racist. and racism is caused by hatemongers who love to be in the limelight by making others hate also.

  • LieutenantSword

    I love the “What would you do?” segments, but this one was absolutely touching. “Let’s move forward together”. What a wonderful sentiment for our country to adopt!

  • Matt

    No. Those are different things, although they are both covered by hate in general (as nucksfan pointed out). Stop trying to tell anti-racism people that’s it’s “now about” pro-gay marriage. Racism is VERY much alive and well. I could name many states where there are massive amounts of racist people. I have relatives in WV and I’m fairly convinced that the majority of the state is racist, and that’s not even that much ‘south’. Same thing with many big cities like NYC, Atlanta. Just the other side being racist. I find that in general, suburban people are actually the least racist.

  • Michael Adonis

    Racism is being pushed and promoted by the people who control the world. It keeps us divided and distracted from the real issues that we ALL are facing as human beings. If we don’t allow ourselves to be players in their game, we take a small piece of control back. The last thing they want is a united people.

    Lord knows many women AND men go through this
    on a daily basis. I have had my “Nana” turn her back on me because my
    daughter is half African, been called a hood rat, a n***** lover, been
    told I have jungle fever, and that I only date black men
    because they got big “d”. I hold my tongue not because I am ashamed of
    myself in anyway but because I am ashamed for the person professing such
    a hate towards me because my skin lacks pigment and my preference in
    men, which is not only Black men! I simply say we all breath the same
    air with two lungs, see the world through two eyes, love with one heart,
    think with one brain, hug with two arms, bleed the same color when cut,
    and wake up every morning thankful to see another day! I simply say to
    those who hate due to a pigment difference is going to need a transplant
    one day and won’t refuse that organ because it came from a
    African/Asian/White/Mexican/cat/dog or hell, even mouse! Live for a
    better tomorrow for todays children. All that being said I say to this

  • Donald Robert

    ignorant people like yourself are why people within other races hate white people, yes, the game of knockout was true I’ll agree with you there and if the video of knockout was reversed it would be a public outcry of racism, but the people to blame for that is the media. The media continues to divide us. Yes, I’m sure you saw a lot in Baltimore, but what you are being ignorant about is that not everyone is the same first off and sometimes it most times it just comes down to poverty. What you saw you could easily see in other parts of the country at white filled bad trailer parks. Everyone hated the Irish when they first came over and they’ve had rights much longer than black people. In our area a lot of people are racist against Puerto Ricans because that is the race with the most poverty. The color of your skin doesn’t make your brain work differently, it’s what you choose to believe or have been taught growing up and still hold on to instead of making your own educated decisions. To say you won’t associate or participate with a race is hate in itself so keep telling yourself you don’t have any hate.

  • Ryan Wilson

    You know the color of his skin was a factor for why some people did vote for him. They had no clue was his views were on different topics.

  • FedUp

    I was raised in a home where racism and bigotry were prevalent yet myself and siblings grew up to despise that attitude. Some who are raised that way cradle that mentality throughout their lives but some can see through and become disgusted by it as we did.

    If Oprah had her way though, 4 children would have been put to death before we had a chance to see the errors that were being perpetrated upon us. Racism is something you have to allow yourself to accept because it is not natural to do so otherwise.

  • Ryan Wilson

    When people were voting before Obama, it probably didn’t have much to do with skin color it was people just voting for someone because of the party they ran for.

  • David

    I love these men and women I have never met! They have shown the true spirit of a human being.

  • Taylor

    I can not stand people like you, John. I live in a small town in Georgia, my husband is half white and half black, and I am white, you should be absolutely ashamed of yourself. My family was really off about me dating a mixed guy, but they got to know him, guess what? They love him, because they got to know them, I am proud of myself for teaching them to look past their small town southern ignorance. Get over yourself and grow up, because you are nothing but ignorant.

    There will always be whites that prefer whites and blacks that prefer blacks. Also, 2020 is only seven years away. I highly doubt whites will become the minority in 7 years.

  • Tim Gomez

    i saw this to i was moved but not surprised after all it is 2013 and most people have put racism behind them and them that have not don’t talk about it openly as much as they had in the past. i believe that interracial dating is very common these days and it does not matter who a person dates or loves true love is color blind but in the same respect i know some believe that races should date and marry within there own race and that’s there choice as well to have there opinion but they should not preach it to others like religion you have a right to follow any religion you wish but should not push it on other who don’t share our beliefs and back to the salon the gay African-american lady at the end told it like it is and was very cool to stand up and voice her opinion.

  • Johnny

    This show is stupid and causes uncomfortable situations for people who are unknowingly on camera. Pressing questions of “why didn’t you do anything” may paint a bystander in a negative light, and it makes the situation worse if the producers of the show make a note of “however, this person declined to be interviewed.”

  • Morales Joe

    I love what you did there. I’m wondering if a black woman walked into a white barbershop would it be worse. God bless keep hope alive.

  • Jeffrey Ambrose

    What can i say . . . that was a beautiful display of compassion. All the people who stepped up and spoke were amazing. If we are going to move forward and grow as a people we need to be ALOT more like this.

  • Toa

    I’d like to see what would happen if a white MAN walked in there…I really doubt that the customers would have been so accommodating.

    I agree, racism will never be a thing of the past but the last thing we need to be doing is allowing the past to hold us back. We cannot fight hate with more hate. We are trying to move forward not back

  • Jeannette Newman Fehr

    John J Coltrain, you are missing out on the richness of life that diversity brings. Thugs come in all colors. Goodness also comes in all colors. I can’t believe that you have not met at least one person of a different race than yourself whom you associated with and found common ground to stand on. Just one person you could call a friend of a different race. I feel so sorry for you.

  • Todd Naughton

    Boy, there a lot of racist comments on this article. That is really too bad.

    As a middle age white guy, I hope that if I was in the reverse situation I would have the guts to handle it as well as the customers did in this video. I like to think of myself as a good person, but I have never been in such a situation so I don’t really know how I would react. But, I trust that God would guide me to do something.

    Is there still racism in the world that goes in both directions. Certainly. But if we each try our best to improve things in small ways in our daily lives I have faith that it will get better.

  • Deedlez

    RayCharles, I couldn’t have said it better myself. The way people reason at times is absolutely asinine. It’s quick and easy to hate an entire race based on the mistakes of a few (the latest being the trendy new knock-out game, one case of which turned out to be a woman who was hit in the face by her boyfriend, but blamed the assault on a group of black youths). I can’t imagine how embarrassed I would feel about myself if I outwardly decided to disassociate myself with all white people, go on social media outlets and condemn them all to death because the media portrays most mass murderers/school shooters as white men. Before you go demonizing an entire race of people, stop and think about how you’d feel if it were done to you. No race is perfect.

It’s easy for someone to sit here and say “Oh if they reversed it the white people would talk so much crap about the black girl,” but that isn’t necessarily true. We are all just people. By making statements like these, you show that you did not capture the meaning of the video.

  • DLang

    Thank God I see no racism in my circles. We all get along and even within heated talks or fights no one has ever sought out words of racism. I would like to think tgat the world is like us but when I see news reports and abuse reports etc I find it to the contrary. I know it can be done. We live it here and we are a very diverse group of people. And seeing this video helps me to know for sure that we can do it. We forgive others for the past and for their own past. We except them for who they are and what they’re about inside. Exceptance, Love, Compassion and the infusion of God is what I’ve come to know what works. If we have these in our lives abd actually truly embrace them then all is good and Racism Looses!

  • DDLZ

    I was actually going to bother pointing out all of the flaws in your pea-brain logic, before I caught a glimpse of the wonderful history of racist, anti-semitic comments you’ve already left on this site. Another neo-nazi psychopath with plenty of hatred for Blacks, Jews – who knows who else? “National parks have plenty of animals without blacks visiting.” Haha, I’m going to go ahead and laugh at that one because there’s already a special place in hell fire for people like you. What a pathetic, insecure little creature you are.

  • Lakhirah L

    Not to be a curmudgeon, but I’m really curious how the cameraman appears to the bystanders involved. Is it obvious they are being recorded? This seems too highly produced (many angles, steady image, etc) to be a hidden camera thing.

  • Tasha22

    I cant blame people for not wanting to stick their noses in. IF she’s that much of a hater bit*8 who knows what she might do? She might start throwing punches. I also think the first woman went too far—she could have handled it more gently but she got insulting.

  • Tasha22

    It’s not just tolerance that’ s needed, it’s the love of God in the renewed mind in manifestation. If we stand together as fellow Americans, and think of people as either brothers and sisters in Christ, potential brothers and sisters in Christ, or simply people we can bless (assuming they are not trying to do us harm), this would not be happening except for a few lunatic ungodly people. But now we have a racist demoncrap party and racist communist administration who divide to conquer.

    and here we are. the ONLY people that defended her was who? black folks. they say 20 out of 100 said something. i wonder how many were white. by the way, telling her to put in a complaint is not defending her, walking out the store with her is not defending her. this is what people need to see.

    Religion should have nothing to do with whether people are racist or not. People can be against racism but completely nonreligious. Or vice versa, I’m sure you can think of an obvious example.

  • Hi This Is My Username

    I really enjoyed this video. It was amazing.

    I’ve had the chance to defend blacks and have done so with pride. My parents taught me that we’re all just human beings. Seeing anyone getting harassed, I am always willing to step up and call out the person that is doing wrong.

    Now, to those claiming it would be much different in reverse, I would have to ask, how do you know? It sounds like you’re still living in the past and automatically labeling people without even knowing how things would play out and just figuring the worst case scenario would be the only outcome. Too many blacks have been brainwashed into thinking all whites are against them and that simply isn’t true. I also get the feeling that some of you haven’t even learned anything from what this video taught, which makes me feel sorry for you. Maybe you’re hanging on to what goons like Sharpton and Jackson say too much and they are great at keeping blacks down, by brainwashing them with their distorted views that they make big money off of.

    Also, a little history fact. Blacks sold themselves into slavery. It wasn’t just something that white people started. Hell, lots of races have experienced slavery. It’s wrong no matter what, but trying to constantly blame the white race and think you are owed something, is ridiculous. You will never grow as a person, if that is always going to be your view.

  • El PapiRatzi

    My ONLY questions is this. These same black folks that damn near jumped out they seats to defend the white lady. If they were in an establishment where they saw ANY person of color being disrespected. Would they have been that brave. Would they have had the GUTS to confront the white perpetrator. Or is/was their own personal love of white people a subconscious motivating factor? Lastly, Im for equality no matter race, creed or color. But I cant help but think that this entire piece was simple propaganda for race relations and the homosexual agenda. Thinking is critical folks.

  • Reversed

  • Benny Reyguel Nious

    I agree with both Paul and Anon. Both of them are right. Racism is bred in the minds of people by OTHER people who have hate in their heart. In other words, it is taught. Unfortunately, there will always be racism until the end of the world. There are ppl in this world who’s main goal in life is to hurt and destroy others. People who speak out against racism help balance the issue and also help keep racism from getting too out of hand. Its like standing up to a bully. Bullies will leave you alone if you show them you’re not afraid of them. We all have a free-will choice to love or hate. The question is : What is YOUR choice?

    Ummm. Because its the “hood,” which is defined as being low-income. how many rocket scientists do you know that live in low-income neighborhoods? If the only black people you know live in low-income neighborhoods, that says more about your limited experience with black people. Which certainly doesn’t make you qualified to offer an assessment of black people in this country. I know black people of every economic class – as well as a black rocket scientist. I also know white, Asian and Native Indian people that live in poverty. Those poor communities are also afflicted by gangs, drugs and crime. You are equating race with economics and they are not the same. I suggest you not depend on stereotypes for your education, it’s very lazy thinking.

It is good that people do stick up for others but if they don’t, you shouldn’t let it get to you..words are words..you shouldn’t get hurt by them..take away the meaning and it’s only words..actions speak louder anyways.

    This post and the video in general are extremely racist because they both operate under the assumption that reverse racism is real WHICH IT ISN’T. Yes, the black actress was being rude, discriminatory and prejudiced but racism is prejudice AND power. Whites have never been systematically oppressed by black people, so the fact that WWYD even chose to film this says a lot about modern media.

    I live in GA. I see it all the time. I saw a white a**-hole who was obviously drunk pulling a boat going 65+ on a highway. He had to stop quickly because a black woman slammed on her brakes at a stop light. He got out of his car, and begin yelling at the woman using racial slurs. I have friends who will use racial slurs. I know black men who will mess with white guys about race-y subjects just to throw them off-kilter. It’s not just whites. It’s not just blacks. Racism is real. Its all around you, just open your eyes.

  • Jennifer Brownell

    the addition of the “power” element to the definition of racism is nothing more than academic bullshit, a cop out produced in the 1970s to provide a overriding excuse for negative attitudes toward whites. Be sensible.

  • Caden

    That’s sounds awfully conditional. God is a valid solution to racism, but there are many people who aren’t racists that know nothing about God. Honestly, we are all brothers and sisters simply because we all have the same image. You can tell a species apart by category: Dog, cat, flying pink elephant, etc… but you can recognize one another by smaller details: Long eared dog, shorts eared dog, they’re both dogs. People simply need to think on a bigger scale and stop blowing things our of proportion. Skin tone is only one detail and it has no positive or negative affect one someone’s personality or behavior. What we look like nor what we believe in has anything to do with our identity. Knowing something does not affect the fact of the matter, it affects our perception so that we may act accordingly. All of us have the same identity as humans. Once many of us realize that we’ll start to see an even greater change.

    There’s no need to keep a valid solution out just because it’s not your type of subject. “The sane” would realize there’s never only one solution to anything, just as there’s never only one reason for anything.

    There’s really know way around “Religion” just like there’s no way around people giving their opinion. If we stop pointing out the differences in opinion and start focusing on the similarities, will make progress. That’s a fact that religious groups, business groups, even gangs can agree on. There’s power in unified numbers, not numerous groups opposing one another.

    JEHOVAH IS IMPARTIAL

    Impartiality is another of Jehovah’s endearing qualities. What does it mean to be impartial? It involves being fair, free from having or showing bias or favoritism.

    Genuine impartiality has two elements: attitude and actions.Why are both needed? Because only if someone
    is impartial in his outlook will he be moved to treat all with impartiality. In the Christian Greek Scriptures, the expression “not partial” literally means not a “taker of faces,” that is, not favoring one face over another. (Acts 10:34; Kingdom Interlinear) Hence, one who is impartial will pay due regard, not to an individual’s outward appearance or circumstances, but to his or her character as a person.

    Jehovah is the greatest example of impartiality. His Word states that he “is not partial” and that he “treats none with partiality.” (Read Acts 10:34, 35; Deuteronomy 10:17.)

    WE CAN IMITATE JEHOVAH

    How can we imitate Jehovah’s impartiality?

    Remember, impartiality has two aspects. Only if we are impartial will we treat others without partiality. True, all of us like to think of ourselves as being open-minded and impartial. You will likely agree, though, that it is not always easy to evaluate our own feelings objectively.

    So, what could we do to find out if we are known as being unbiased? Well, when Jesus was interested in knowing what people were saying about him, he asked his trusted friends: “Who are men saying the Son of man is?” (Matt. 16:13, 14) Why not follow Jesus in that?

    You could ask some friend whom you can count on for candor whether you have a reputation for being impartial. If he or she concedes that there seem to be some lingering traces of racial, social,or economic partiality, what should you do? Pray earnestly to Jehovah about your feelings, begging him to help you adjust your attitude so that it will reflect his impartiality to a fuller degree.—Matt. 7:7;
    Col. 3:10, 11.

    In the Christian congregation, we express our desire to imitate Jehovah’s impartiality by treating all our brothers and sisters with dignity and loving kindness. For instance, when it comes to showing hospitality, we want to invite all sorts of fellow believers, including those whose background differs from ours as well as those who are poor, orphaned, or widowed. (Read Galatians 2:10; James 1:27.)

    Further, in the Kingdom-preaching work, we share the good news impartially with people of all backgrounds, including those from foreign countries. How happy we are that we have access to Bible literature in some 600 languages. What a tangible proof of impartiality!

    Indeed, as we take time to reflect on how approachable and impartial Jehovah is, our appreciation for him deepens. Deepened appreciation, in turn, ought to move us to imitate Jehovah’s qualities to the full, demonstrating them in our dealings with fellow believers and with those to whom we preach.

  • Matt Vernon

    This is a great video, but the article written for it is piss poor. A member of a minority and oppressed demographic CANNOT be an oppressor. To write that the folks picking on the girl for her skin color are racists is just stupid. I hope you all understand that. They may be acting with prejudice, but racism is a system of oppression, not a moment. STOP TRYING SO HARD TO VICTIMIZE WHITE PEOPLE. Trying this hard to convince people that the most privileged class in the world, and in this country, are somehow able to be victimized at the hands of those who are members of subjugated classes is absolutely pathetic. Grow up.

  • Nick Monterosso

    Actually no its a fact that the majority of white people are not racist, and the majority or blacks hate white people for a crime no one alive today is guilty of. You see it every day black people trying to make whites ashamed for what happened 200+ years ago it isn’t some secret. Say what you want but it is the truth. I know this just just from what is on the internet but from personal experience growing up white in a predominantly black area Deerfield Beach FL, my middle and high school was 80% black. All you ever heard out of the black kids mouth to any of the whites was “cracker” this is a racial slur but it was ok because they were black, if any white kid was to say the n word even if he was listening to rap music singing along he/she was beaten half to death and nothing was done to any who were involved because they would blame it on the kid using a racial slur and the black kids would at most get detention. Even through all that I don’t hate blacks because they are not all like that I have met a very few of them throughout my life that are some of the best people you would meet and even agree with these points I have made and are ashamed of their people when it comes to these topics.

    It’s not religion. God is not religion, he’s our maker. Religion is man made. And to answer your question, God is everywhere, so no we cannot keep him out of our lives or situations.

    They are one of the reasons why I don’t care for religion, of course there are many other reasons also. Personally I don’t feel the need to have religion in my life to have a relationship with god. My relationship with god is based on prayer and spirituality. Buddhism is the closest thing to religion that I consider rational.

    Good point. But I think they were showing what happens when a white woman gets “victimized” just to settle the question with people who believe in reverse racism. And the answer is that she gets defended and nobody agrees with the harasser. The point here is that nobody’s going to victimize a white person, so white people need to stop being so defensive.

    I try to ignore skin color so that we can exist together without skin being an issue. I try to be tolerant of a things that are different. Unfortunately I haven’t succeeded 100% with gays.

    It shouldn’t matter but when I’m in a room with someone I know is gay, but it does. I’m nervous and self-conscious. I’m aware of every move I make around that person as if I have to watch myself for my own safety. I don’t like it and I want to change, but I’m not sure it will happen.

    Once gays do get integrated into society like racial minorities are STARTING to, something will step-up and be the new venue of hate. I’m sure there will always be something to hate, but we can still try.

    That was really awesome to watch especially the last lady who didn’t respond with anger but took a gentle loving approach so as not to emphasis hatred at all.

Makes you think maybe most people really do just want to love each other but there are still a lot that are infected with anger and others that are carrying hurt and they speak the loudest while the media fuels the hatred. Be cool if the peace makers would get up in unity.

    Ok so to to re-phrase: can we keep Spiritual believes out of it? not everyone is spiritual as you seems to be and the racism issue is far more complicated to solve than just by slapping some god loves y’all on it i think. This video is amazing, really gives you hope.

  • Chris

    There are more people the react this way than the other, but they can’t seem to get the coverage on MSNBC that Sharpton and Jackson do. When black kids and white kids hang out at the mall or see a movie together or even date there’s no cameras there but when Sharpton and Jackson are “crying out for justice” you can’t get a word in edgewise. Obama is taking the side that borders on the same and even though his mother is a white woman from Kansas, you’d never know if, because “his son would like” a black man. He has taken a stance of inequity rather than equality, the Democratic stance. One that puts votes in the ballot box for him. It’s about position, power and money more than race these days.

  • Saad Ghamdih

    Go to Asia countries, for example, Malaysia, and see what racism means and experience what blacks or other small Asian countries go through in the hands of Malaysian police or immigration officials.

    We JUST saw a heart-moving video about tolerance and harmony, and you’re going to play the Religious Intolerance card? Really? Racism isn’t the only form of bigotry, by the way.
    I agree that this isn’t the place for preaching, but 1) don’t judge all religions together as if they were one social group. They’re not. 2) Don’t judge people by the actions of their ancestors. White people have done horrible things, and so have some religious people, but hating the innocent because of what the guilty did only perpetuates hate (please rewatch the above video). Same with people of faith. 3) Atheists aren’t perfect either. Stalin alone was responsible for more deaths than the crusades by a huge margin, but that doesn’t mean that Atheism was to blame.
    I appreciate that at least you were discrete about it, but please don’t confuse religion with the abuse of religion. That would be great.

    Evil things like hatred and racism only exist because of human choice. Yes, we are all different, and that’s a great thing. There will always be people of different races and opinions and lifestyles, but that by no means mean that prejudice is perpetual. It’s only as perpetual as we allow it to be.
    The world is getting better. Slowly, but surely. A thousand years ago there was no racism problem– it was just a fact of life. And it was even more ridiculous than recent years. It wasn’t just between white and black, but between neighboring countries. The French and English were hated enemies, and they were the same color and shared many ancestral roots. To most of them, blacks were alien and inhuman– practically a myth, as most would never see anyone from Africa.
    But today, racism is seen by so many as barbaric and deplorable. So much so, that a show like this can even exist.
    And if you ask me, it will only get better (despite some brief ups and downs).
    You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.

  • sageoffools

    Sorry to disagree, but there is only one reason for racism. The Bible says that there is only conflict because of pride. Racism does not occur because I notice someone’s skin color is different than mine, nor does sexism happen because I recognize someone is of a different gender. Racism, sexism, ageism and any of the other -isms out there only happen when one person thinks himself better than another. The key to ending bigotry is not being “colorblind” or “genderblind” it’s ridding ourselves of the pride that makes us think we are better than anyone else simply because of how we were born.

    That’s ridiculous, racism is a mindset, it can be institutionalized into a system of oppression, but a minority can still be a racist. Also your ‘privileged class’/’subjugated class’ stuff is WAY more relevant to one’s socio-economic status than race and while there may be correlations between the two, there are enough exceptions to show it is not in fact due to race.

    someone in the comments posted a vid from when they staged a black woman being harassed by a white retailer in a store. out of a 100 instances only 20 said something(i won’t use the term defend like the people in the barbershop did). the retailer talked to some of the bystanders after said instances and one white guy said she tried to pull the black card……on tape. that attitude is the majority on what folks think of black people. the internet backs this up everyday.

    but i suppose you are claiming that there are segments to counter this as well. i will give them a look.

  • one

    Wow! I love that woman!
    I know of this guy, who lived in a country where blacks were segregated from the wealthy whites by constitunial law. this guy wasn’t putting up with that and rallied black people to protest. as a consequence; he was thrown in jail and was kept there for 27 years. when he got out; he ordered his people to forgive. the segregation law was dropped in 1990′s and he became president. and instead of being angry and full of hatred, he chose another way…I dunno-you might have heard of him.

    As a black european, a descendant from slaves, a person of color in a predominantly white society- it’s not always easy(I’m obviously,not white). And I could get angry over that and the past and what black people all over the world have to “endure”at the hands of white people in their respective environments.
    Well, I choose to not ‘endure’ anything.I remember the black men, who rose to greatness by being full of grace(ain’t nothing religeous to it: it’s real) and think of a better way to improve myself and getting about the business of doing it; not just saying it.
    and i’m telling you; living like that…gives me everything I wish for. because I don’t just wish for it; i make it happen. and then I give thanx for all the things I have been given in order to make things happen…especially the power to forgive. It isn’t easy..it means letting go of some of the things you really believe in. Evolution is never easy; that’s why it takes millions of years. But letting go of hatred? pffff…you can decide that, right here, right now. Let. it. go. free yourself and those around you. It’s up to you

    I am a white male and I lived in Harlem for about a year. I was going on a date and wanted to get my haircut so I just popped in to local barbershop. When I walked in it was like on of those scenes from a western movie where the guy walks into the saloon and the music stops and everybody stares at the newcomer. Stood there for about 30 seconds before one of the barbers said “Excuse me sir but your fly is down”……….About 30 seconds later the laughter died down and I had an incredible experience. The guys were watching movies, playing chess, talking about life and love and just having a great time. Such a difference from the stuffy old barbershops I went to growing up as kid.

    Now reverse it and lets see what happens. I think this video spreads the stereotype that black women all have a problem with black men dating white women and shows them all victimized. The video is erroneous in so many ways. Racism is a sure problem it may never be fixed but this video to me deepens that stereotype. I have seen this show on many occasions and I know this isn’t the only time they have brought to light racism but what amazes me most is how none of those shows have lit up social media but this particular stereotype about black women has become so popular in the many attempts at making black women look bad. Not everyone cares that white women are dating black men It has been going on for centuries. It amazes me at the doors that have been opened when we received our first black president since then black men have been shown in light much different then those that they were previously cast in something black women have known about for ages. Black men are amazing and they didn’t just become that way when they became millionaires,famous actors,business men and the likes of what was ok to bring home to daddy we know their worth’s and are not threatened by the idea of white women just figuring it out. It didn’t take them breaking barriers for us to know and appreciate who they are as men we have known all along. So stop with the bigotry. This has been around forever nothing new about it.

  • mannywallace

    It certainly *isn’t* a love of God that’s needed, since I neither believe in God nor anything that comes from the bible for religious direction. I’m glad that works for you, but what I think is needed is a general respect for humanity and understanding the value of each persons unique life and individuality.

    It certainly *isn’t* a love of God that’s needed, since I neither believe in God nor anything that comes from the bible for religious direction. I’m glad that works for you, but what I think is needed is a general respect for humanity and understanding the value of each persons unique life and individuality. These are things I get from within myself and I don’t need to rely on anyone or anything else to direct my moral compass.

    “The Only True way any of us can truly forgive our fellow Humans is to be ONE With our Creator GOD, The Lord JESUS CHRIST, otherwise, Our words have no meaning!”

    The only true way to forgive our fellow human beings is to be one with our fellow human beings. Try and find the answers from within, you’ll find these answers to be far less divisive.

    I’m a Business Women I just think that the video is one sided and if it’s a point to be made then I would like to see the sample from BOTH perspectives (black women with white man in all white shop). To stop something from continuing to grow and stop it altogether you must attack the roots. Racism did not come from BLACK ppl, we are the victims, so don’t blame us, attack us or try to control our feelings with these types of hypothesis video and controlled experiments they are insulting and one sided.

    Please read this response in its entirety. You missed the point entirely. I start off by saying racism isn’t an issue, our problem expands beyond the spectrum of race, and into everything. We as a people have a problem with differences whether that be skin color, or as simple as opinions. Wars are started over differences not just race. And in regards to the parties I’m talking about party as a general rule, I never said I didn’t like them, you are assuming. I said the media race baits, I never shared my opinion on where I stand politically. You are being judgmental and proving my very point by attacking me, I did not attack anyone on this page or show any hostility I did not call names or say anything bad about democrats or republicans. I said they both have similar goals with a few differences on how they get there. And shared a fact that those few differences cause a lot of heat between the two. Everyone here just simply wants a better place to live and a better life, we all just have different ways we think will get us there. Did you just log on today to attack someone that is different? Why can you not tolerate the fact that you an I are different? I think everyone’s differences make us unique. I am no hypocrite I have my problems, I am not a fool who thinks I am perfect. What about you?

    What is man that God should be mindful of him? In that man has the capability to love. Love who you ask? Love God by loving each other. If you say you love me but you hate your brother, then you lie. How can you love God whom you have not seen, and hate your brother whom you have seen. People, bury the hate and see why mankind was created. To love God. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    I believe in your dream, and I dream that it is more than a dream, however I must say it is unrealistic. You are definitely correct in stating that there was a time when we didn’t look at race, but at that time we looked at status, peasants vs nobility(Still going on today in the underground). But in reality we have never seen peace since the dawn of time. We have been waring over difference since we got here. If you look at a timeline of wars there is no break in war. And your statement that evil things like this exist only because we ‘let them’ implies that we can force change. You cannot force change, a man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still. That is a truth, the only thing you can do is force conformity, and when you force conformity those conforming are prisoners of a system they will in time completely fight back and we will have war again. A perpetual cycle. We are currently waring in the middle east not for the point of freedom, we are already free, they are not going to attack us we have more military might than any nation. If you wish to discuss this in detail email me at [email protected] I am not here to fight anyone but to educate people about the truths I know, as well as learn what I can as well from others. Regardless there is one alternative, and that is to have our nation lead an example, refuse to go to war, and focus on our thousands of internal problems, solve them and act as an example to the world and after creating a perfect nation hope that the world sees we have no problems and try to emulate us. Very unrealistic since our government is pro war. We love circumventing into other countries and butting into other countries civil wars. Not because we are helping but because war makes hordes of money and creates hordes of jobs. War does not decide who is right, only who is left.

    Oh okay thank god lol, I actually agree with your opinion then. You are correct, as a general rule we are an ignorant race, we can’t possibly know everything and as a result there is going to be certain things that we do that will be wrong. Not that we wish to make the wrong decision, simply because we know not what we do. I am going to be a hypocrite in some ways, however until someone points them out and helps me educate myself it will most likely remain. However through self discovery I have found a lot of them, and with the help of family(friends and loved ones) I have made great strides. As soon as most people here discover they are not perfect they can change themselves so profoundly. People in general fear change though, change around them, especially change in themselves, I am no different I have experienced both. These are facts of life, we fear the unknown.

    I love how everyone has made this a “black and white” issue. I grew up in S. Florida where there are so many cultures. I love that there are so many cultures! I hated that there was racism everywhere, even among their own descriptive “races”. Puerto Ricans don’t like Cubans or Mexicans. African Americans don’t like Haitians or Jamaicans. And, don’t get me started on all the mid-eastern cultures… the Pakistani, Indian, Turkish etc, etc, etc, They sling the racial slurs back and forth like there is no tomorrow. And yes, I have had incidents where I was the white girl that the other races said something to. I’ve stood up for myself many, many times. After the look of shock is wiped from their faces, there is usually a strong friendship created. I have also been the one to stand up for the person who is receiving the abuse and to the person who dishes it out in generalities.

    Everyone that crosses our path has something to teach us or we them. We all make quick judgements based on our experiences or our handed down life’s lessons. With compassion, tolerance and patience we can still the angry beast that lurks in us all and see individuals for the humans they really are.

    Of course, this is not to say that we need to like everybody we meet. It is okay to say that a certain set of actions brings you pain and discomfort and you really do not wish to have that in your life. Either they can change that set of actions or you will not be able to enjoy their company until they do. This dislike, however, should not be based on things they cannot change, like where they were born or the color of their skin.

    In political circles, there are those who are paid to sit on political websites and make inflammatory comments in an effort to make one party hate the other party. We call them ‘Trolls’. The same type of person exists for many other topics as well, to further divide our nation by race, by religion, by gender-bias, by any number of topics. Someone in this comment thread posed as being a religious person and at the same time made a severely racist comment … thus painting a picture for hate against the ‘religious’ people “because they are racist and have no tolerance.” We all know that is complete garbage.

    Religion presents its participants with a ‘way to live’. Some religions try to teach the way to be ‘the best version of yourself’. Christianity teaches that we must love our neighbors as we love ourselves. It doesn’t indicate that we should love our black neighbors or our white neighbors, our gay neighbors or our straight neighbors, etc. It simply teaches ‘our neighbors’. That means everyone. If you love yourself MORE than you love everyone else, that creates ‘pride’ and pride can make us judge others to see if they are ‘worthy’ of our love. This judgement incites all the negative bias in the world today, and keeps us from moving forward together.

    If we can truly love one another as we love ourselves, we find it much easier to apply respect, patience, caring, sharing, and acceptance.

    So, Christianity does not preach ‘tolerance’. It preaches ‘love’, which is a far better goal in my opinion.

    Mr Nippon, with that statement are you implying that ‘white folks’ think they are superior to ‘black folks’? Do you really believe that, or are you just a Troll here to help stir the racism pot?

  • MoH

    Are you serious? I hope you are being sarcastic because it is hard to know. You don’t see the KKK signs on the highways or old roads of Georgia? Just because you don’t see it or experience it does not mean it does not exist.

    When I announced I was moving from Oklahoma (which is just as racist) to Georgia my white co-workers who were born and raised in Georgia seriously warned me to be careful and told me that there were still places that I could not go. My daughter (who is multiracial) was in Kmart with a friend in Peachtree City, GA (an uppity, racist and segregated town). A white man approached her white friend and asked her why she was hanging out with a black girl and told her she was wrong. Of course her friend got upset and told him to mind his own business.

    I worked at Starr’s Mill HS in Fayetteville, GA where a teacher (who could recite the latest hip hop song easily) often referred to blacks as monkeys and gave a student a card with an ape on it and told him it looked just like him. When Obama was running for President many of the students referred to him as a monkey-white people who were friends with my daughter were suddenly ready to move to Australia and Canada (and wouldn’t they have been disappointed if they ever really moved there because they have universal healthcare and gun laws). In their words, “They could not stand to look at his black face.” I had to teach my child how to handle comments like that when some white people feel entitled to spew their hatred.

    In Newnan, GA near the mall we would often see white boys driving a car with some racist homemade sign on their car for all to see and F*** Obama was common.

    I took my daughter to Biloxi, MS for a national cheer competition and had to take a detour and my
    mother’s white co-worker warned us to never do that again-that there are
    still southern towns where black people cannot be seen at night. He
    was UPSET.

    My 60-year old doctoral classmates (both from Alabama) got into a heated discussion about racism in the south – one never saw evidence of it and the other told her specifically to look for a certain politician who still makes his black employees enter through the back door. When we later took a trip to learn about Miles Horton in Tennessee my classmate (unexpectedly) tearfully apologized to me because she saw evidence of racism when she returned home.

    My husband’s white boss told him that the mayor of our former Georgia hometown was racist and in closed meetings often refers to black people as niggers.

    My good friend (who is 20 years older than me and happens to be white) told me that the V.President of our university’s finance department (where we both used to work) told the white leadership (including human resources) in the room with him that you cannot hire black people because you cannot fire them (which is untrue). He is the same person who was urged to hire a black female applicant for an executive finance position. She interviewed very well. She came with a degree in finance, outstanding credentials and twenty years of related financial experience. She was the obvious choice. Who did he choose for the position-a white guy with a zoology degree and no experience whatsoever. White people say things to other white people expecting them to just understand.

    My brother, a soldier in the U.S. Army has faced an incredible amount of racism. He is also married to a white woman and she was called a nigger lover while he trained in S. Carolina plenty of times. Their marriage has been an eye-opener to her. Some people think they have the right to say whatever they want to say.

    People of all races can be prideful, mean and judgmental. Still we all have to rise above it all somehow.

  • Psychotherapist

    Interesting video. I notice that a lot of comments below attempt to define what racism is. In Transactional Analysis theory, racism is explained as a contaminated belief, one that prevents us from fully being in the here-and-now reality. It’s a bit like an internal filter that all information about our reality passes through – often resulting in distorting/moulding/reframing the world to suit our own unique set of experience. Contaminated beliefs and value systems can be about sex, sexuality, spirituality, faith and religious beliefs, people, appearance, cultures, small groups, large groups, situations, career choices, parenting styles… etc etc. Bringing your religion, faith, spirituality etc to the argument is actually a parallel process to the one that is being explored in the video. All of us have some degree of contaminated beliefs, until we start looking at ourselves and realise that we are only restricting our own growth, needs, relationships, and connection with others and ourselves.

    Tasha I believe in god and follow his teachings. I also know that you want nothing for the best for these people. However you must know that a large majority of the world is opposed not necessarily to him but religion. And usually opposed to religion because of the force used by preachers to try to get other people to believe in him. Have you ever heard the saying, ‘A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still?’ You cannot force people to accept God or religion, I actually am opposed to religion, I think it is corrupt and I know enough to know that a majority of the messages taught in church settings are not accurate to their true meanings, which unless its a parable are pretty much straight forward but we twist them. Try a different approach, God may be a jealous God, but he does not have the ego that we do. Try not preaching his name and preach his word. If people ask you were you received your wisdom you can then reference them to where it came from. You also have to remember we are not here to judge, who are we to judge Gods creations? God is a god that loves variety he has made us all unique. God even created evil to work out his purposes. So preach his word, for his word is what is the most important. I know it may seem strange but the best way to get people to see the truth is by teaching people when they are looking for help, by using our knowledge and wisdom of the word, and speaking only at time when that word will help others. There are many scriptures showing that a word spoken before their time will serve no purpose and only dull their meaning.

    the very definition of racism is when a race thinks it is superior to another. whites, the majority, practiced this with slavery to black codes after the slaves were free, to jim crow up until the 60′s.

    tootie mcgregor claims that there is racism on both sides which cannot be true because the minority cannot oppress the majority. a better word for what minorities are towards the majority based on the history on this country is bigot probably prejudice is better. people like to claim racism is a mindset but without the power to act on it, it’s pointless. would you take the person serious who claims they are going to shoot you, but has no gun?

    I am have just relocated back to Chicago, (where I was born and raised all my life), has had several interviews since returning, including one on Tuesday at Applus Tech, and no one that was supposed to be at the interview showed up, except for a new employee (4-months), and I asked her how long she had been doing and/or working proposals, she says “it’s my first time…never done this job before”, now…how did she get the job with no experience? She did not know basic info in her role, but I did not get the position (because I am black of course), and I will bet my life on it that they hired a white person that does not have a clue about the role. People have to remember, this is America and white people will always defend, help, take care of, whatever, other white people. Black people think this is a crime and would never defend another black person (which is sad).

    A majority of the people commenting have completely lost focus on what this video’s beautiful message is supposed to be about. Acceptance and tolerance. So what if you don’t agree with a person’s lifestyle? What business is it of yours if someone doesn’t believe in what you believe? We are all individuals with our own unique backgrounds and we should embrace that. It shouldn’t matter so much where you’ve been or who you are because our focus as a people should be to move forward with positivity. We need to learn to look past our differences, eliminate the mentality that one’s way of life is superior to another’s, and learn to see each other as equals. Regardless of what you may believe in spiritually, physically ,at the end of it all, we are but bones and dust. So what are we going to do with the limited amount of time we have on this Earth? Bicker about silly things or come together and create a more tolerant and loving society? We’re working on it, but we’ve got a long way to go.

    In best case, the reactions were coming to staged events, so it’s just a laboratory situation. You will only have real reactions, if the situation is real. People have instincts that tell them, if the threat is real or not. You cannot feel real threat from actors, who don’t really want to harm you. So no, the reactions are not real, they are not applicable for real life.

    Besides that, actually everybody was an actor here, so there couldn’t be such things here, as real reactions. You shouldn’t believe everything you see in the tube. Sorry to say that, it’s not my goal to troll around and disturb people, but nothing won’t get better,
    if we try to build upon lies. That didn’t work out, ever, in human history.

  • DeeDee Leger

    The only way we can fight racism is to teach our children better. My step father was racist, but that did not stop me from having friends that were not white. My mom is not racist. My dad was not racist but he did not believe races should mingle. But he would not spread the hate when he seen a interracial couple. It was just his opinion. It did not pass to me. He was from that era when racism was a big thing. But it did not stop him from being in the Marines, which was full of people willing to give their life. One of his best friends was a black man from Africa. And back to my friends….I have friends that I see as my fellow human beings. Yeah we are a mix race group but that does not stop us from being friends and we have always stood up for each other when needed. I had a friend that was dating a white guy who was racist and he started a argument with a group that was black. Luckily I had a couple of friends in that group that stood up for me saying I was not to be messed with because of the guys stupidity, and I walked away. Only reason I was with my friend and her boyfriend was a ride home. But in that case, I walked home. I am wary of anyone I don’t know. It does not matter if they are black, white, asian, korean, japanese, muslim (or any religion for that matter) or even a biker (not a race but most bikers get a bad rap because of the way they look). I don’t judge others on how they look. I judge them on how they act in society. If you act like a fool or look shady. I will shield my children from you. My daughter is 7 and her school is mostly white kids. But that does not stop her from being friends with the kids that are not white. My point is we are all human and we all bleed the same and if you take our skin away all you would see that. I feel cowards hide behind being racist and those cowards hide behind religion (I am not saying all religious people are like that- I am saying those that give religion a bad name). My dad taught me one important thing. “It is not the color of ones skin or even their religion that makes a person matter. Its how they live their life. If they are lazy, then they don’t deserve a thing. If they work their arses off, then they deserve the most in life.”

  • DeeDee Leger

    Sadly racism will never truly go away. You have families that do not teach their kids any better and those kids grow up and teach their kids. All we can do is teach our kids to be better and explain to them why its wrong to judge someone just because of their skin color or even their religion or sexual preference. And with that, lead by example. We may not be able to totally get rid of racism. But we sure can fight it.

  • DeeDee Leger

    Yes I wish racism would just magically disappear. But I know it will never totally go away. All I can do is teach my children better and teach them that judging a person by their skin color is wrong and then lead by example. I can say I have stood up for others, regardless of their skin color. I have many friends and I can guarantee you they are not all white. I consider most of my friends as family and they the same.to me and my family. We are all human and we ALL need to fight this fight against racism. Yes racism will never truly go away, but if we let ALL racists (not just white people, I am talking about all races. And this does not mean all are racist- its just a few bad apples in every group of people) get away with it then it will never stop. We ALL need to let these racists know that we will not put up with it and stand up for our fellow humans.

    You’re just as bad as these people who are racist. Not everyone believes in “god”… What you think your religion is better than everyone else’s? Besides region also caused hatred, racism, and so forth. You must be excepting no matter what race they are or religion.

    Oh really? Not every religion believes in “god”. It’s good to be excepting but does not mean you have to believe in it.

    I would have made a huge scene and walked out. Racism is something that no one has to deal with alone. Stand up for your fellow humans regardless if they are a different skin color then you. If one cowers down and lets someone be abused….they are no better than the racist spewing hate…….And this is not towards anyone, just speaking my mind.

    A beautiful example of humanity …. its deeper than skin color, sexual orientation, religion or spirituality! It’s our common ground….and that is simply that we are all the same, human! Humans – (Homo Sapiens) – distinguished from other primates by their large brain, which enable high levels of abstract reasoning, language, problem solving, and culture through social learning. In order for things to be different we have to treat each other in ways different than before! Be the change, be the kindness, be the compassion and simply, be the good you want to see in the world!

  • dhoyy

    I live in GA and there is plenty of racism just like any other state in the union. You’ll find plenty of racism in the north as well. There is racism everywhere. Here I notice whites hating on blacks, blacks hating on whites, hispanics hating on blacks, blacks and whites hating on hispanics. Its not just one area or one type of people its everywhere with every type of people.

  • Terri Holland

    Racism is not about judgment. We make judgements all the time. Accepting each other and eliminating racism doesn’t mean we stop noticing skin color. But assuming a particular color of skin indicates something negative about the person is racism and wrong. You are right we need to be tolerant. But intolerance is racist.

  • Aori Hanazari

    I’m going to nit-pick a little bit. Pakistani and Indian are not Middle-Eastern Cultures. They are considered South Asian. Middle-eastern is usually associated with Arabs and Turks are different from Arabs, so I am not sure Turks call themselves Mid-Eastern.

    I suppose you can use the word in that sense, where as judgement be the capacity to assess situation and or circumstances, draw sound conclusions and so on and so forth. I 100% agree with you. However what I am referencing is not the capability to make observations, a black man is a black man and a white man is a white man, what I’m referencing is the belief that all members of an individual race all possess the exact same attributes, removing individuality from the members of the race. I myself have used simple observations to point out someone in a crowd, in a 100% nonracial way. I was using judgment in the method that those that follow religion use it though, to cast judgment down on someone, where they consider all things and the judgment is the outcome. Many people will see many members of a race do things they are either opposed to or just straight up appalled by and then judge their entire race based off their experiences with a few, or even worse because they were taught by someone to think that way and never developed their own opinion. To be honest I am white and I grew up in a place where racism was very strong, our school was abundant with race wars. I myself have been pitted against people of different races just because I was present and myself judged as a snob and a white person with a power trip however I had little friends and I cared not for race both parties were equally angry and disgusted with another however I have nearly gotten into fights for very small frivolous things I said that have been taken out of context and almost got me into fights with people of different races. I’m just sick of it. The problem was with the people around me getting angry is hypersensitivity. Their are people around that 100% hate me because I’m white, in fact while on the topic of religion I’ll introduce you to Reverend Jeremiah White. One of the strongest race baiters alive today, check him out, its very disturbing and one of the reasons it is so hard to live together.

  • Ralph McGinnis

    What you are describing is not the definition of the word “racist.” Based on the actual definition of the word, anyone can in fact be a racist. It’s not reasoning based on a value or judgement – it’s reasoning based on the actual word definition. Also, in this country, the oppressive class is anyone who is a rich asshole – of which there are plenty of black people, woman, gays, and any minority. Anyone can be, and actualy IS oppressive. In fact, being oppressive is the ultimate American dream, which this video illustrates so well. everyone wants a piece of the oppressive pie.

  • Guest

    If people would realize that the whole “race” thing is a social construct, we’d be better off. Its called bigotry. Racism is a dated notion. Bigots are dicks and people who think there are genetic differences are fools.

  • Matt Vernon

    Hey, that’s better. Yes, I’m aware of the difference between the dictionary definition of racism and what I described. That doesn’t matter. The differences between structural racism and individual moments like this renders this type of video almost entirely irrelevant. Focusing on instances where poor, darling white people feel discriminated against is pathetic. They are only noteworthy because they are so rare, and because they are rare they paradoxically get undue attention while also being barely worth mentioning. I mean, the whole video was a fabrication to begin with… this isn’t even a real life example of the mythical “reverse racism.”

    I’m not sure if you’ve seen the video circulating lately about just why reverse racism is a fallacy, but I think it’s compelling and simple – the only way a person of color could be reverse racist would be if they got in a time machine, went back 500 years, and convinced all the non-white peoples of the world to colonize Europe. That’s it. That’s the one instance of reverse racism that could exist, and it’s impossible.

    Now, as a pretty big fan of Marx, I have to say I like what you are saying about the oppressive class being rich assholes. Identity politics are tricky, for sure, and for me they are only worth talking about because that’s the context of our times, but as white dudes, we have an imperative to realize that rich assholes tend to be white men, that there is an observable and quantifiable historical trend that explains that phenomenon, and that even though we may not be rich ourselves, we benefit from the socio-economic conditions that those rich assholes create. Remember that the man who does nothing takes the side of the oppressor. That’s most of us.

    However, no, not anyone can be oppressive. Oppression requires a position of power and privilege. As for suggesting that the American dream requires oppression, maybe that’s your American dream, but to me that is a hopeless position and one that I refuse to accept because I refuse to live without hope. Yes, Americans are responsible for the lion’s share of worldwide oppression, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t take personal responsibility for your actions and do your part to check out of that system. No effort is too small. Starting by rejecting the idea that members of a politically, socially, economically, and judicially disenfranchised demographic can somehow be both powerless and oppressive would be a good idea.

  • GCS

    They need to do this in a setting featuring an attractive blonde woman and her shorter Asian male BF. The Heckler needs to be a white male who spews all sorts of things relating to negative stereotypes about the Asian male’s ethnicity/race, lack of sexual prowess, dating a domineering “Jap,” etc… The Heckler’s target needs to be other white males. The audience will see that 90% of white men will agree with the Heckler verbally and the other 10% will tacitly approve by nodding their heads..

The Heckler needs to be a white male who spews all sorts of things relating to negative stereotypes about the Asian male’s ethnicity/race, lack of sexual prowess (i.e. short dick), dating a domineering woman beating “Jap,” etc… The Heckler’s target needs to be other white males. The audience will see that 90% of white men will agree with the Heckler verbally and the other 10% will tacitly approve by nodding their heads. Maybe 1% will actually tell the Heckler to shut the F up. Nothing burns up white men more that seeing an attractive female of their race with a man they stereotype as being sexually weaker, passive, etc…

  • Ralph McGinnis

    No, there is no “reverse” racism – there is only racism. Actually, reverse racism would mean not being racist. I do take issue with anyone telling ANYONE that their experience is meaningless, which is basically what you are saying. You may be referring to bitter white people nitpicking, but you can’t dismiss a person who may be in a situaltion where they are not simply discriminated against, but people are actively trying to harm them. There most certainly ARE people of all sexualities and ethnicities in a position to weild power over others. And actually, like I was saying, in America, most people want that privelidge. So we need to acknowledge it exists everywhere. Everyone is guilty.

    When Europeans say things like ‘Obama is Black’ or ‘I have a Black friend (or relative) when people are talking about institutional racism, to me it is a dismissal, or minimizing of the root cause of the problem.

    So, I would have defended the White actress, until she said ‘Obama was Black’.

    I didn’t say that the Black actress was right in spewing hatred and bigotry, I said that the White actress, to me, by pointing out that Obama was Black was dismissive of bigotry.

  • Patrick Sullivan II

  • Patrick Sullivan II

    I’m a white male with a black gf and nobody I know seems to have issue w it. Bc they aren’t bigots. There are bigots of all colors. The only people who have outwardly confronted me ever were black men who didn’t like that I was with her. I’m sure there were some white people who think the same thing too and wonder what I’m doing. Racism absolutely goes both ways (and many other ways bc there aren’t just black amd white people). Your generalization of white people as the bad guy in all cases and black people as the victim is just as demeaning to good white folks as a white person hating on a black person.

    They should do this both ways and not try to make black women look bad. Because When I was with my exes(I only ever dated white guys and mexicans) It would be more than just someone bitching, the black men would get aggressive and VIOLENT. When me and my ex were walking out a restaurant once, and this happens ALL the time, there was this group of black men who started taunting him by cat calling me. Whistling, and calling for me, it also happened when I was in highschool. Or when we stepped out the car once to go to the mall here how we’d get stairs and how black men would literally walk up to us as if they knew me personally and ask why Im with a white guy, or mexican man. Being aggressive and threatening to beat up my boyfriend, or if there is a lot of them, saying they are gonna gang him. THAT needs to be covered, because black men’s jealousy is too over the top and agressive and needs to be addressed by the public, not always demonizing black women when our men behave worse because they think it’s ok for them to date out but not the women. it’s a double standard in our culture. Black women are taught to worship and only see black men as desirable, so we don’t date out much. But black men can date out, and when this man who has a white girlfriend, sees a black woman with a white man, you’d think he’d be resonable but he’s not. We get the WORSE names in the book called out to us, including “nigress” “white cum bucket” “ghetto gagger” and the men even threaten to harm our boyfriends, but THEY have white girlfriends, so why are they acting like that? THAT needs to be adressed. There’s this guy on YouTube who insults black women on a daily for dating white men and saying we are nothing but cum buckets for the “snow beast” but what’s so ironic is that this same man also dates white women. How are you so accepting of black women being with white guys if you yourself also date out? This double standard needs to be addressed

    The true problem with racism is our definition of it. Do we not make fun of each other for having different features, like ears, nose, head, body, etc. ? Now remember what is race exactly? Nothing but a handful of similar features that have been grouped together. We are making a huge deal out of normal shit. Noticing skin color is no different from noticing ear size or nose size…if it is different from someone else’s, we as humans are naturally are curious about it. YES, we do need to forget about racism….that is, our DEFINITION of racism because it is 100% inaccurate. Calling something “racist” indicates it is something different from simple physical trait differeniation, which it is NOT.

  • alex

    Our definition creates false information, which in turn becomes a slippery slope that creates our made up definition of racism. We in a way are making it real, simply by believing in it. Like ghosts. or the easter bunny. or hannukkuh bunny or whatever

  • dave

    If you feel uncomfortable about something, speak up. Morgan freeman once said, “to stop racism, you just have to stop talking about it.” if we keep remembering what the past was like to a certain culture or race, we will build the hatred in ourselves if we in that culture or race. just simply stop talking about it. spread love by living by what is the right thing to do as a human. doesn’t matter if he black, white, chocolate or purple, he still human like you and me. colors are made for the world to look bright and beautiful. we ain’t living in the black and white TV age, we living in the full HD age world with all the colors that make it beautiful. embrace the beauty. simply because we human beings.

  • Brad

    It causes problems in general. Culture. It doesent work out. it causes alot of problems and drama your creating a ton of problems for yourself and your kids. You must understand every culture is different. Some people date out of there race too elevate themselves in society. Every mother and father wants there son or daughter too marry or date there own kind. In the long run I hate too say this but your asking for a ton of problems and I highly dont recomend it. It just doesent wotk out.

  • infidel

    i think, much like greed, bullying and other such behavior, racism is based in a particular type of fear. and so it’s not a simple answer of merely’ tolerating’ someone (although that is a slight improvement).

    racism won’t end until an individual inwardly transcends one’s particular fear(s) – and this requires a deep amount of soul searching and reflection.

    is not racism and bigotry psychological in nature – and therefore ‘taught?’

    seems that the real questions are ‘how is this being taught’ and is ‘who is doing the teaching?’
    therefore, a person contributes to ending racism when they stop demonstrating and teaching it – whether in it’s gross or subtle forms.
    this, seems to be the real issue.

    ‘tolerance’ per se, is just a stepping stone.

    Oh..racism. I have been there many times before. I was the victim of it in my own country. I got involved in racism with some drunken white American soldiers deployed in korea. Back then what I told them was , “Let’s get out and see the consequence! I never wanna make any noise at my bro’s bar.” If I could go back to the time, I would say, “Look at me, I am just a human being standing upright just like you! Why don’t you try to find sililarities with you? Why do you just try to find the differences between you and me?”

  • secular turk

    One should question their belief if they can’t respect and enjoy the colors God has used to creat the world we live in. Instead of seeing the differences, why not focus on the similarities. Trying to remove all the differences, would also remove all the elements that make us unique. I embrace all colors of God, for without them life itself would be too boring.

    You would be the 10% who tacitly approve of the Heckler’s agitations with a head nod, an arrogant smirk, or some other non-verbal manifestation that you agree with the Heckler’s assertions but wish to remain in the background. The Heckler’s sympathizer. While you may not want to be all buddy buddy with the Heckler, you hold the Heckler’s same belief system.

    When push comes to shove, you will conform just like the 99%. The brave will tell the Heckler to shut up. In this case, I would venture to bet that the person who speaks up first against the Heckler will be a white woman because 1) women don’t like to be told who they can and cannot date, and 2) most women have a disdain for people bullying others.

    If you said that an attractive blonde (assuming you find blondes attractive) with a shorter Asian male does not make you jealous, then you are lying to yourself. The hypothetical video will play on this jealousy and stoke the inner fire that re-ignites every time you see this situation. Your jealousy will not be as strong if you saw an attractive blonde with a black male because 1) black men are perceived as being more masculine than whites and 2) such a pairing is so ubiquitous that it has tempered a lot of the resentment (or jealousy) white men feel.

    This video needed to target more single black women, many of whom feel slighted when a desirable black male spurns them for an attractive blonde. Case in point – black females jurors in the OJ Simpson murder trial turned some of their anger at Nicole Simpson Brown. Their feeling was that “here’s another white girl taking one of our men.”

    As a black woman, I can identify with feeling and that the producers of the video were trying to evoke but ultimately failed.

  • Patrick Sullivan II

    Apprently you know me so well and know exactly what I would do? I don’t hold that belief system and assuming that so many people necessarily do isn’t the right attitude. It makes you no better than the heckler. I find blondes attractive (not all of them necessarily) but I find beauty in all women (white, black, Asian, Indian, Native American, Hispanic, etc. etc. etc.) so I don’t think seeing an attractive blond with a black man is going to bother me one bit. I have good black friends with white girlfriends and I have white friends with blakc girlfriends. I know white people who date Asians, I know Hispanics who date blacks, etc. etc. If I like the person and they are happy with who they are with and treated well, there isn’t any underlying emotion of anger or ill-will I am harboring. Maybe I am in the minority in that sense, but please don’t accuse me of believing something that I don’t.

    By posting these positive reactions and interaction we can teach others…people are influenced viually. If media would step up the positive interactions,as was depicted in this video others can learn positive communications. Some people may want to react in the way depicted in this video , but are suppressed by peer pressures…lets everyone know that’s its’ alright to step up. It is a positive step forward for all. All humans have feelings. Amen?

    We cannot remove Judgement. Without judgement we could not even decipher our own mind! We could not even tell the difference between colours! If there was no colour red, then blue would be inconceivable.
    When people cling onto ego, they get on an egotrip. A race is an ego.
    Egos are all masks.
    It is scary to take off your mask and Be Real.
    But honestly. If you are racist, then something is holding you back.
    We put all these labels on ourselves just to feel love, to feel charming, to be cute, whatever.
    All that is gone somehow when we die.

  • Anon

    That is the exact guidelines hitler was thinking of too. He coined his perfect race the Aryan race. As I’ve said per the definition of racism, it is a belief that race dictates personality, characteristics, or other attributes. Because one does one thing the entire race does something. Like black people steal televisions, and Asians are good at math. Make sense? People just need to educate themselves and stop being so blind and judging an entire race because of experiences with a few, and even worse, they were taught to believe this and never formed their own opinions.

    Nothing to do with Religion,, believing in God is a choice, being the color you are is not. Just because one believes there is a God doesn’t make it true (you chose to believe what is said in the Bible is real), you do not chose the color of your skin. If people would learn to blame the person (or group) who is doing wrong instead of the whole race then we could start to heal. I am white doesn’t mean I belong to the KKK, just like if a person is Muslim doesn’t mean they had something to do with 9/11. We need to put blame where there is blame and don’t blame a whole race based on a few bad eggs. If a person is an atheist doesn’t mean they are any meaner than a Christian,, it is all about having a heart and passion for others. I believe what one poster has stated that we have a tolerance issue,, personally I think they both intertwine together. Some people hide behind the Bible to discriminate against homosexuals, some hide behind freedom of speech to talk against our Black President and try to say its not about his color (although he has done no worse than Bush). People will always find a way to try to stop change, it is up to all of us to teach tolerance, love, and acceptance for every single person. After all, we all deserve civil rights and to be treated as human beings, because that is what we all are.

    Are you not listening, race and culture are not the same thing and culture is always changing no matter what.

  • Barbara Finger

    We lived in NY in the 70s – my husband and I went to Harlem with some black friends – they made us lie down on the floor in the backseat as they were afraid we would be killed because we were white – THAT IS HOW IT IS

  • Makes Sense

    You still don’t get it. For most people of faith, treating people with love comes from their faith. And saying that people who have faith are not sane (your word) makes you ignorant and intolerant.

  • Life of Love

    We can’t keep God out of it, and we never will. Your implication that religious or spiritual people are all “insane” is just as bigoted as the racism being destroyed in this video. You’re part of the problem – move beyond.

  • Infinite truth

    Crazy how you watch a video on judgment and love and someone has input on there beliefs and instead of showing tolerance for her your first move is to ask her to not share with people her beliefs or worldview. Does it scare you that much that someone believes in a personal all powerful creator that you must ask them to keep it to themselves. Why don’t you keep your lack of belief to yourself? Is it so bad that she believes that a historical figure as Jesus Christ who taught absolute unconditional love might be a good belief system… at least for her?? I believe in God and one of my best friends is a capital A atheist. I love hearing his views even though I disagree with some of them, I actually agree with many. See that’s the problem when you don’t believe in God you become a naturalist by default and love doesn’t exist when we are just matter consisting of different compounds. Theres no such thing as good and evil its just cause and effect. So my proposal to everyone is to see that not all things that are powerful, important and necessary for our lives must be seen, heard or touched. You cant do any of those things with Love but you see it ripple through the very fabric of this world and I know you saw it in this video. Love.

  • Kate Simon

    This was a wonderful video. That being said and having read through the comments. Our education system has really let a lot of you down as some of you have no concept of how to use the English language. Are you accepting people as letting them into your life or are you excepting people which is eliminating them from the equation? No means NO, Know means you have learned information. And don’t get me started of “there and their”, apostrophe s to make something plural or “Two, To and Too”. The video was uplifting, reading your comments wasn’t. No I am not an English teacher, just hate to watch my language be butchered by ignorance.

  • Mr Anderson!

    Just my own opinion as a Christian:
    To those who don’t have a religion/ don’t believe in God (such as atheists), I’m sorry that some of us may have offended you. Unfortunately, as a Christian (I can’t speak for other religions), that’s the way we think: centering everything around a Creator, whether our judgements, actions or moral values. And we believe that we do not live for the human race, but for our God. That is perhaps why we appear to have so many discrepancies in opinion. I will not be “sorry” for that belief, because I stand for it and I’m sure many here do. Racism here is, to us, a simple violation of the commandment to love each other, and that’s all we stand for. And I’m sure that even if one doesn’t believe in God, that still stands, so I don’t see why there should be any argument about that (save for our personal reasons which are in fact rather similar). It is true, in part, that religion appears to have caused much trouble in the world. But bear in mind that it is due to human fallibility and not due to God Himself. And that is our simple stand. We may offend you, but if it is in accordance with our faith, we will not take back what we say (however, if it’s mindless criticism and name-calling I can assure you that we do not advocate that).

    To my fellow Christians: remember that standing up for God does not mean standing up against others by slamming them on the Internet. Remember that we are all called to be persecuted as Christians. We can state our beliefs, no matter how warped they may seem to a non-believer, because that is what we believe to be true, but we should never lash out and bring others down. Did Christ save us by lashing out at his persecutors? I think not. So bear that in mind when we speak here.

    But aside from that, let us enjoy the love that is shared amongst many in the video above, love that, whether we have a faith or not, I am certain we still believe in.

  • TalonM17

    So I’m trying to understand your message: You are trying to say that if a person is not religious, they can not be a moral person? That because they don’t believe in God, or they believe that evolution is a factual occurrence that their moral compass becomes apathetic?

    That is downright foolish. An atheist can (and some do) follow as rigorous a moral standing as “good” Christians. Just because they don’t believe in God or religion does not mean they can’t determine what is right and what is wrong. Not everyone needs threats of hellfire to not be a bad person.

  • Sean Haddy

    Only when people like Jesse Jackson stop profiting from promoting racism (yes, promoting, not discouraging), that is when the true racism problem in our country will stop. I have no problem with people of any color. There’s good and bad on both sides…

  • bleufishcat

    What makes the Great American Experiment so fantastic is that we are citizens because of a common idea…the US Constitution…not a skin color, ancestor heritage (although because some of our ancestors we’re here), religion, status…We are Americans first.

    Good to see unity on display!

  • Will

    I agree too. (Pride also seeks disagreement in order to exalt one’s self.) But if you look at a the big picture there’s even more than one reason people are prideful even though the ROOT reason for pride is false self image/self belief. The root reason for anything has been a lie from the beginning. When we realize the truth, that we were made to love one another, we’ll then work together and stop trying so hard to get ahead of our neighbors, eliminating pride, selfishness and many other social issues people face today.

    FUNNY , you Atheist always call us believers , ” Dirty, filthy, names,” yet if a single one of us use a clean title like ” Tailless Monkeys,” your Quicker than crap through a goose, to point fingers of blame & ridicule that one as a False believer!
    As for the rest, I’m not perfect, just forgiven!

  • Quester55

    Your 100% correct, yet as you can see below in these comments, it only takes one or two bad apples to spoil the whole bunch!Way two many people from all races, worship HATE for hate sake, calling their actions love , & too many people are blinded by it!
    The sad thing is, Not a single one of you where born with RACE HATE, IT was Taught to you by Dear old Mom & Dad! Whom learned it from their parents, from one generation to the next.
    HATE is a Choice you make, You can Break the Cycle or Choose to Keep on Hating till you Die!
    I Just Pity the soul that chooses to Die with HATE in their Life.

  • Kathy

    I watched this with tears in my eyes. I was born in Louisiana and have lived 70 years in Louisiana (not that I’m that proud of Louisiana these days!) and I hope I would stand up like this in a similar situation. We’ll never get past noticing people’s differences (he’s white, she’s short, he’s cute, why’d she wear THAT???), but, people, let”s grow up and rejoice in our differences. Would you want EVERYONE just like you? Booooorrring!

  • Amaya

    This is my take on the video and the comments posted, The moral behind it is treat others as you would wish to be treated its not religious just common sense if you would not like to be treated that way then why do it to others. Its as simple as that. I would not tell a person their faith is wrong (whatever faith that may be) just because i am a non believer it is there right as my fellow man to believe what they want, same as i would not expect them to tell me likewise. Differences makes the world interesting but it shouldn’t breed hatred, bigotry, however we as a human race are fallible and capable of such horrible things but if you maintain that same moral compass how would i feel if i was treated that way people may just get along better. Yes this is a simple way of looking at things but why does it have to be complicated.

    As a white male , I must share a quote from a speaker I heard years ago during a presentation at a HBCU. Unfortunately, I do not remember his name. I do remember he was a very well educated black man , with 2 master’s degrees and a Phd. His audience was 95% black. He said, “Not all white folks are your enemies and not all black folks are your friends.” I think this says it all.

    I’d like to see this same scenario played out in an all white “downtown” barber shop with a black man dating a white woman. I’m really curious as to what their reactions would be.

    Furthermore, I hate when ppl say “we’ve got a black president now”. As if that’s supposed to prove that racism is long gone even though this president gets bashed more than any other president history. So Obama being president DOES NOT mean racism is a thing of the past. So stop bringing it the hell up. Do you know how many hard working black people have to deal with racist bullshit on a daily basis? Yeah, we’ve come a way, but not nearly far enough. Think about it… How many ethnic actors are on tv shows and movies compared to the number of white actors? How many NYT bestselling books that feature ethnic characters get made into movies compared to ones with all white and/or straight characters? Why do you think ppl were so pissed that Carter was killed off or Person of Interest? One black female character to represent the race in a positive light and now she’s gone. A lot of people of different races don’t get to see a lot of themselves represented in mainstream media. 1 or 2 per every 6 or more white people.

    I want to see us really reach the promise land and be equal. Right now, we’re not quite there. And I mean that about all races and sexual orientations.

  • aceman

    There’s so much focus on individuality and separation, that a lot of people feel they need “tolerance” in order to get along or co-exist with others? This is the real problem in my opinion. It’s like promoting hatred in silence. I see this in my neighborhood all the time where people of different races are neighbors for years, not fighting yet never conversing, just exchanging fake waves once in a while then give that “look” behind your back. Why not just “accept” everyone, and live in harmony with one another? To tolerate is to “allow”, to accept is to embrace; there’s a BIG difference. We’re all brothers and sisters in my book.

  • AudreyHipbone

    I thought that for a brief second at first, but there is a point. Had this happened in real life, with no cameras, it would have impacted a person, maybe a few people. But it has a much bigger impact because it was filmed for thousands, hopefully even millions, to see. The actors were necessary to represent the feelings behind a certain point of view.

    The ‘pornography’ comment is misplaced. Doesn’t even make sense.

  • Floyd Rudolph

    Some people only see from their eyes and think its righteous to judge other people. When we are children the world around us isn’t limited by skin color however, as we get older we become influenced by the attitude of peer groups, parents, teachers and society. Racism is like an angry dog. If you react, the dog is going to react back. If you turn your back, you defeat that anger and your positive limbic wisdom grows stronger. As humans we fumble around in our feelings of love and hate. Be grateful for what you have. Many people can’t see the trees for the forest. Racism is unintelligent and embarrassing. We are in the age of intelligence now where caring is the new currency.

  • Dave Nice

    That
    was beyond heartfelt. As a white man, I’ve noticed more non-whites
    sticking up for the right thing more than most whites do. Example…in a
    prison/jail setting, a white will get a higher percentage of help from a
    non-white. If it’s the reverse and
    the non-white needed help, the chances of a white standing up would be
    slim to none. Being I’m an urban person, I’ll help anyone that needs it.
    The bottom line to this video is, it is clear non-whites sincerely want
    change compared to their overall white counterparts.

  • Jose Solano

    And white people still be using the word “nigger” all over the internet.

  • LuVox

    The point is she is enacting something that exists. Although she isn’t racist herself, she is representing those who are. Racism still exists and this video serves to demonstrate A) how stupid racism is, B) that although it will always be something fought against, look at how far humanity has come… the people fighting against racism in this video were not acting, and C) we are all human.

    This video is so touching and yes, some of the people in it are acting, but if you don’t see the point I suggest stretching your mind and then re-watching it.

    And by the way…
    Pornography is defined as: writings, pictures, films, etc, designed to stimulate sexual excitement.

    I don’t know about you, but this video did not sexually stimulate me.

Thank you to the folks who made this video.

    Typical right-wing douchebags trying to make out that there is rampant racism among black people. I love how the person who posted this video to this site conveniently left out the part of the video showing that the racist hairdresser and the interracial couple were actors. That’s a pretty important part of the video if you ask me.

    What exactly was the racism here? A few people not speaking up? Some people just don’t deal well with confrontation and this was hardly the worst when it comes to racism anyway. I didn’t see anyone that they interviewed afterward agreeing with the actor portraying the racist hairdresser. Did you?

    Here’s the full video with the set up explaining that the racist hairdresser and couple were actors: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arpO1_rqe5Y

  • Jason Morris

    Great video, very encouraging… my loving side is also moved by the words of what the homosexual woman at the end said. That being said, her being gay is still wrong, but not any more wrong than me being a porn addict or a liar. I don’t think any different of her, I pray that she finds redemption in Christ and healing through the blood he shed on the cross for all of us. Wrong is still wrong to me but that doesn’t mean I would treat her with any disrespect… Picket Sign “christians” are not acting in the spirit of true Christianity.

    I’m a Christian, which means I am a follower of Christ, through the standards and system that Christ laid forth in His Word. I am not a follower of man. Someone doing something evil “in the name of god” does not mean it was God breathed and certainly doesn’t reflect on the spirit of true Christianity.

    Now, as a Christian, my truth is what I believe God has laid forth as true. Many people here seem to be taking the…well we all have our own truths and that’s fine path. Well if what’s true for you is true for you, and what’s true for me is true for me, what if my truth says your truth is a lie, is my truth still true???

    It doesn’t work someone has to be right.

    Great video though, racism is wack, from all sides! Just had to comment on the backlash towards another Christian for inserting his belief in to why bigotry and hate exist.. And to his defense it is logical to believe that since God is Love, and the opposite of Love is hate then without God you are left with hate. Again this is assuming people follow the God he is referring to and believes is the one true and living God.

  • FDSAQ

    Actually racism do not exist. Is only in sick people heads. If you knew just a little history, you would know what i am talking about. First of all, there is only one race on planet earth and it is called – Human race. I know some others – dwards, orcs, elfs….. cant remember other races though…. thats differente races. But if we are talking about black/white/yellow etc… its not racism. Split and Conquer thats what it is and it is a Roman Tactic used to control newly captured territories. Racism did not exist till 18th century, think think think…… what was before that?

  • Cpt_Justice

    That’s a little of what I meant by “safe”. That video upset me a great deal, because the retailer was definitely out of line. And the very fact that a seeming majority of white people either think negatively of black people, or just don’t think much of them, is what I think would make it unsafe for a black person to try to speak up in a mostly white establishment. The black person has no way of knowing just how negative those people will be.

    Nice one, but I would really like to see the reaction when a black guy comes in with an Indian girl/pakistani girl or vice versa in an indian/pakistani community or barber’s shop. that would be class to see the reaction. Can’t wait to see that.

  • Alex U Koyfman

    Bullshit, Angelique. Religion is just as manmade as the concept of god. You have no more proof for his/her/its existence than I have evidence that he/she/it does not exist. I don’t go around saying that my theories are sacred, however, where as you do. Just because your conviction is solid doesn’t mean its legitimate. As much as I’d love to be as deluded as you, I can’t take that step… To each his own. Just don’t go around stating that you know something you have no way of knowing. Faith is internal. Evidence is not. You might have one, but there’s no way you have the other.

  • Nicholas Bennett

    True. But this has been done by
    religious and non-religious peoples. Yes, everything that involves Man is
    flawed, and we are animals that forget to work against our ego, our
    selfishness, and our intolerances. Religion is not the problem, we are the
    problem, and until “How to: love, forgive, be tolerant, be patient, be honest…
    101,” become required classes in the curriculum of life; we will be stuck
    on, on what now seems, an eternal loop. To break this loop all we have to do is
    “love your neighbor as yourself,” (I wish it was that simple). How can you love
    me as you love your “Self,” if you do not know of love your Self?. This is what
    is inhibiting (along with innumerable things), the most natural (love) to grow,
    but hate, greed, rape,… which are all derivatives of selfishness, can only be
    made strong in the absence of love, and it’s many derivatives: forgiveness,
    patience, kindness etc…. I love you; I love
    the guy/gal I do not know, but know quite intimately, simply because we breathe,
    hurt, grow, regress, live, die, and share the same beautiful and turbulent Earth.

    in 1996 while staying in Northridge, in the San Fernando Valley , California, i’ve been invited by a local lady friend( caucasian) to a very rich party in Brentwood, a very very wealthy neigborhood of L.A. Well, the mansion was owned by very rich afro americans and at least 90% of the guests were afro americans. i just want to say right now, after all these years that i was severely discriminated and no one, i say, no one of the afro descendents talked to me. i am a jeweler since 1983 and also a physician graduated in King’s College, London and can speak four idioms fluently.

  • LondonDerriere

    I think you may be confusing religion with spirituality. Religion is definitely complicated. Between the religion’s spiritual founder, the tenets of the religion, the interpretation of said tenets by the church authorities and the congregation, the finances, the politics of the congregation and clergy, etc., etc., etc., sometimes there is a real can of worms. Conversely, spirituality implies a simple question: Where is your consciousness?

  • LondonDerriere

    Christianity was not established by Jesus. Jesus did what he did. Someone else called it Christianity.

  • Hawklord

    Thank you! It is the fundamental respect of life, be it from any culture or religion we come from.

    Agreed, Jane. Though I may not totally agree that the Bible is the last authority, many who see it as the final authority have misconstrued the whole “curse of Cain” to be related to skin color. That line of thinking qualifies as something that would make a good fertilizer for the garden or the front lawn. :)

    It goes back farther than we like to look 17th BC(1700 BC) Egyptians enslaved the jews, that was over 3.7 thousand years ago. 7th and 8th BC Greece, the Romans enslaved everyone that wasn’t Roman, so on and so forth and that was 2.8 thousand years ago. To the Egyptians were a race then and so were the jews aside from religion. Just because you’re school didn’t teach you it doesn’t mean something didn’t happen. Another thing most people don’t realize is before we had africans as slaves in america, the africans started the slave trade prior to that, the slaves were white men and they couldn’t handle the stress the developed boils from being in the sun and died of malaria . After this time the remainder of slaves were africans, and they sold slaves to us. Indicating that it is not an issue for just one race, but a human issue. We as human’s like to subjugate each other this is true even today. But since racism has been given a name, and has drawn attention to it. It has become an idea and an idea that many have adopted, and idea’s cannot be killed. Racism has been around for a long time, however back then it was more than the color of the skin it was culture, yes. However we used their features as indication of what culture they belonged to, and for some, they did simply judge them based off of the color of their skin even though we did not coin the term then racist yet it existed. Thus my statement can be true, anything prior to those dates is vastly outdated history we don’t have records on but I believe it would be a safe assumption that racism has always existed. Yes sometimes it was not just race but a large majority of other things. But in the large scheme of things we cannot deny that half the time the only reason we are at war, or killing eachother is that we think a little differently, or even worse just because we want to live where someone else is preoccupying. Ex. the Native Americans Genocide or nearly, were we killed nearly as many indians as hitler killed jews.

    It is true, the media is owned by overpowered corporations. Warner Bros(CNN), Disney(ABC), Viacom(CBS), News Corporation(FOX), and so on and so forth. They individually own many companies under them and under those companies many more. And they control every magazine, every newspaper, and every piece of mainstream media you can find, they control. So what they can do is manipulate the media to met their political agenda. All corporations are pure evil. The race bait, for separation. They divide our nation daily, everyone thinks that they have such a large variety of different things to collect data from but in reality they only have around 6 different flavors of bullshit to choose from, all backed by and run by large corporations in the background that distribute the news for their own needs. And then you have people like senator Dianne Feinstein who has nothing but pure evil intentions for this world, she specifically backs the mainstream media 100% and loves the control of information, she wants to take away the protection journalists have like the one we just read so that they can no longer legally have the write to post their opinion online. Apparently if your not one of the power houses you have no right to think or speak unless its media approved. That and hordes of other corrupt and despicable things.

    Funny comment I actually just responded to someone with this information, I’ll simply copy and paste it for you, with a little extra : It goes back farther than we like to look 17th BC(1700 BC) Egyptians enslaved the jews, that was over 3.7 thousand years ago. 7th and 8th BC Greece, the Romans enslaved everyone that wasn’t Roman, so on and so forth and that was 2.8 thousand years ago.

    Regardless I know my history, and another thing. History is written by who is there to write the history. War dictates who is left not who is right. Therefore the people that survived wars write the history of the human race, just because they are survivors does not make them right. However it is safe to say that not everything is written, and if it goes back to 17th century BC who is to say it doesn’t go back farther? Besides you cannot deny, as I’ve personally lived it, where a man is judged because of his race. What we are is of the same species, not of the same race, we are all homo sapiens, however race is used for human classification, and we categorize them based on everything including the color of their skin. In america judgement based off skin color is extremely prominent.

    To give you an example of a little history missing from our textbooks from high schools, we slaughtered the Indians, we killed mothers, fathers, children, raped them, after there was almost no left we cut them a deal and for the most part created prisoners to our system, we called them savages, and did the same thing we did to them as we did to african americans. Because of their race. Our text books say they were savage people and warred amongst themselves. But they are our textbooks, we never gave the indians a chance to write them, what if… They were all lies?

Black people have been abused beyond reason in our country and yet the people in this video have huge compassion for this white woman. Those who spoke out did so with eloquence and empathy. Racism is racism; it’s always wrong. It’s rare when a white person experiences it but those who have suffered from it all their lives are so generous here. This is humanity at its finest.

    Of course there are many religous people with hearts full of love and tolerance, i know many of’em and i love’em, some are my closest friends.. My atheisim is my truth, i don’t force it into others.. But unquestionably, a great portion of religious people – followers of religions which defend equality and tolerance – use god and their respective books – bible, torá, quran – to justify their intolerance. That’s absurd.

    i think it says even more about our society when a tv show has to PLANT actors and CREATE a FAKE scene to stir up reactions from real people. because, you know, simply having a white woman and a black man walking into a barbershop together and seeing if they get any kind of reaction would prove to be a much more boring way for tv to show that the general public is working their way past racially divided histories. kudos to the real people and their positive reactions, but what a lame fabrication by ABC.

    It seems 田中愛子 is confusing religion with faith.
    Every religion definitely does have belief in God or gods. The word religion comes from the latin word religio which mean to re-bind with God. People who think there is no God, actually have Atheistic faith and would make up a “deligion”.

  • Knowledge = Power

    I’m sorry but I’m afraid you’re mistaken here. Atheism is a religion because it is the BELIEF that there is no God. Do you have any scientific evidence to prove that God does not exist? I don’t really care that you don’t belive in God (except I’m a little sorry for you), but as SOON as you go around attacking other peoples’ beliefs, you’ve become my problem.
    Ps. I’m not attacking anyone here with the whole Atheism thing; they believe their is no God, and thus (at least to me) a religion.

  • Knowledge = Power

    Look, as fun as it is to mock other people for their beliefs, I think your time would be better spent doing something intelligent and maybe even productive. People of faith, and myself included, are going off of something they feel. I have often questioned my own religion, and whether or not it is true. However, I have always come to the conclusion, through a series of experiences, that there is a God, that he loves us, and sent his only Begotten Son to die for us so that we may go to the next life and live in happiness.
    If you want to go around hating on people because they act or believe a certain way, then you need to rethink your life. The whole point of this video was to show that people are capable of sticking to their beliefs, and defending others from those who don’t agree with their lifestyle, skin color, or religion. This issue has been going on for ages. We need to learn to love our neighbor, and to realize that we all have our own problems. It doesn’t really matter if you don’t agree with someone else’s choices, and its okay to have debates about it. Just don’t go around acting like we are a whole bunch of nut-jobs, and that you’re better than us. And with that, I wish you have a good day sir.

I am sorry that your people got treated bad and I wish it never happened, but it did and for me personally to keep doing the same wrong thing will just result in more hate and more racism.

    Borrowing from some of the proactive contributions I read in response to this fantastic and uplifting
    video I would summarize as follows.

    Of course we are all free to express our beliefs on religion, racism, sexism
    ageism etc. However these are never the real issues.

    This particular experiment was designed to explore people’s reaction to the
    subject of racism, however the root of many of inter-humanity’s problems is often intolerance.

    So let’s see the bigger picture and work together primarily on the root
    of the problem, and remember that religious or not; it is simply not enough
    to understand, know, or believe in tolerance and love. We do all, need to
    practice it, often.

  • CARLTON LITTRICE

    If human skin were transparent, we all would look exactly the same. God made us this way for a reason. To be different and learn from one another. This life he created is for our enjoyment. This Earth is OUR home. As a human race, we should take care of our home so the next tenants can enjoy what we took care of. If we could learn how to work and live together, we could do wonderful and amazing things.

  • Guest

    “Racism” by definition has been so watered down by political correctness and hyperbole that it makes real racism unrecognizable. According to Chris Matthews, if I say “Chicago politics” in course of a conversation, I’m a racist because (according to him) it’s just a “code word” replacement for a more derogatory term for blacks. The fact that Chicago politics is a product of greedy white guys since the 30′s and that two back-to-back Illinois governors (white) are in prison for corruption, well that doesn’t matter. Since our sitting president is from Illinois politically speaking, now the phrase “Chicago politics” is racist.

    Racism will *never* end (and only get worse) as long as everyone sits idly by while the politically correct successfully work everyone up into a frothy frenzy over words and phrases that have nothing to do with racism. As long as that happens, when or how will real racism ever be exposed or addressed?

    Actually, what you just referred to is what I meant. The black shopper was in an overwhelmingly white environment – & they were mainly hostile to her.

Hopefully, the white patrons would speak up. I dunno…

    Part of the Christian faith and faith of every religion is to hate faggots, nigers, immigrants, sluts, poor people, liberals and plus some. That is the definition of faith with religious people. Some may claim to be of a certain faith, but different from the fundamental faith which they belong whom spews hate, but they’re lying. If they truly were different they’d separate from name brand religions. Religion might claim a faith of love, but their actions prove otherwise.

  • Timothy Vaughn Kemp

    ALL religion is the same, The False Prophet mentioned in all religious scripture is religion itself..

  • Timothy Vaughn Kemp

    Atheists churches have sprung up across the US and abroad. They have religious rights and laws in courts in order to obtain their religious rights of practice. An Atheists is A Theists, very unintelligent one. I think the only religious group dumber than Atheists is Christians. Atheists claim that science is their god. And just like the Christian, just like Muslim, just like every religion out there, the atheists do not follow their proclaimed god of science. Math is a science. This is preschool math: TO BELIEVE = yes or no. TO NOT BELIEVE = no. As you can see, the atheists is all hype, talk and lies, just like every other religion in this world.

  • Sherri Heitzhausen

    This is not about religion Tasha. It is about people being kind & loving & accepting towards one another….all people everywhere, regardless of their choice of religion.

  • Sherri Heitzhausen

    What you posted is YOUR belief Angelique. It may be my belief as well, or I may have different beliefs than yours, all the other people participating in this conversation may believe in 100 different religions, or in none at all. You may think that what you believe is right. However, there are hundreds of religions in the world & everyone else feels that THEIR religion is right, just as you do. The answer is, we are all right in our own beliefs. So don’t push your religious beliefs on everyone else, like it is the only correct way to believe.

    There was a time that happened here too, but not so much anymore.

    You live and eat racism. Just sure if someone doesn’t like you or if you don’t get this promotion or a raise, it is race related. You have no idea what is in the minds of white people.

  • pepjrp

    Sane maybe… but a bigot for sure. You are the same as a racist.

  • pepjrp

    His bigoted comment stated that you would not be sane if you are religious. That is making fun of someone to put it mildly.

  • pepjrp

    Atheist progressives are the most intolerant of anyone. Believe their way or receive a ton of hate and threats.

  • pepjrp

    Another tolerant hate filled atheist. Satan is sharpening up his strap-on for you.

  • Lala

    Well…that is certainly a contextual question. I mean, five thousand years ago, if a burning shrub spoke to you, you were a holy man, and ‘chosen.’ Five hundred years ago, talking about a burning bush would get you burnt @ the stake as a witch. Now, it just gets you medicated and into psychiatric care.

    I like the way the last one ended. It was a nice that she made the lady apologize.

    If one believe it or not, with the presence of The Satguru Maharaj Ji’s, we (human-beings) are moving into positive direction, where there will be no racism, there will be no black/white supremacy etc. I always love to see white girls going for black boys and black girls going for white boys. Maharaj Ji have made is so and that’s the only way to end racism. The God inside us is neither black nor white, Gone are the days when black skin was unconsciously painted as evil, forgotten that every human-being, be you white colored, were all blacks before. All the Ascended Masters, Abraham, Moses Jesus, Mohammad etc. etc. they were all blacks. If my boys chose to go with white girls I will welcome them. Be you black color white, we are from the same Father MAHARAJ JI.

    If we followed the Word, Racism would NOT exist, we wouldn’t have tolerance issues, there wouldn’t be a ll these bastard children, and unwed mothers, oh wow I could go on for days!

    Yes Life would still present challenges trials tribulations and tmpatations, but the world wouldn’t be so out of control as it is!

  • sunny

    actually it doesn’t, If you believed in following the WORD!

  • Lala

    Which word is that, ‘bird?’ Because I do believe that bird is the word.

  • Steve Thompson

    Whites can be a victim of racism too.

  • Timothy Vaughn Kemp

    You on the other hand will not be forgiven for your filthy lies. Your soul shall burn for eternity in the lakey pit of fire with 1000′s others like you which matter so little that you won’t even use your real name. But at least you know that your name is unworthy of public mention or actknowledgement.

  • crazyottojr

    this is a set up troll

  • Ladybug923

    Great response here. PEOPLE ARE WAAAAAAYYYYYY too SENSITIVE! Its really a worn out and pretty BAD thing in life to be so sensitive your whole world falls apart if someone says something to offend your habit of being WAY TOO DAMN SENSITIVE!

  • Moped

    Holy shit… No matter any issue you have on the internet, one person said “religion” or “God”, and here it is, all hell breaks loose!

    Then control your Kim Jong Un. If you are not deluded. If you are not
    deluded then realize that 60,000,000 people died at the hands of an
    Atheist not quite a century ago. You should call down your little
    dictators who were the first to attack on this page. Otherwise what you
    are saying is just as hypocritical as those whom you point out on that
    side. I’ve seen many people who believe, say they have horrible people
    who do not represent them in the past. friv 2

    Judge yourself, Before you Judge Me!,
    O.K., JKR., are you trying to tell us that you are a TRUE Believer in JESUS ? If so, Have you’ve taken his NAME (NOT TITLE) in Baptize, or have you’ve gone the CATHOLIC TRADITIONAL WAY By Using the TITLES of Jesus, the so-called Trinity Baptize m?
    One Gets you Saved & The other gets you wet!

  • Tammy

    Sorry but religion is different for all people. Not everyone believes in God so that would be your own opinion along with other God followers. As well as some people may believe in a different God. You can’t shove YOUR religion down every person’s throat and expect everything to be OK with racism.

  • Tammy

    LMAO!! good one! hahhaa. (Some people don’t know the concept behind this phrase, I do.)

  • Deane Bobbit

    Dom, the author sounds like she thinks “we the people” are only crackers.

  • sadgurl55

    You’re right. I should tolerate being carjacked. I should tolerate “knock-out games”, I should tolerate having taxes confiscated from my paycheck to pay for people to have kids they can’t afford. I should tolerate paying property taxes that fund schools un-fit for my kids attendance. OK!

  • kompelio

    fuckin niggers, this white female is a traitor of its race.

  • DashaStarr

    I don’t think racism exist, but that’s just my opinion.

    In my 21 years of living, I’ve had the same opportunities as the next person. Life is what you make it.

  • James Deyette

    Ummm.. Atheism is NOT a religion. Just saying. Being atheist doesn’t require active belief in anything; it simply requires you to not believe in a god. I’ve seen this argument play out so many times and I’ve done plenty of research on it, and trust me, Atheism is not a religion and people mistaking it for one is my biggest peeve.

  • Ello waddup

    what is funny is that people correctly refer to the concept of tolerance, however one should understand that tolerance is not as good as some make it out to be. The example here clearly illustrates an intolerance towards intolerance… when some people were intolerant towards the white girl, others were intolerant towards this… and yet, indeed, tolerant towards the white girl. So you should understand that this concept has a double function. both positive and negative.

  • stupocalypse

    I love how in America, it’s now black people and democrats that are supposedly racist. George Orwell would be impressed.

  • Crimsonite

    Take a good look around, we are far from heading in the right direction. Imperialism is being revived, our rights getting taken away bits by bits while people caring about the little things which don’t really contribute to human progress. I have nothing against your beliefs, but preaching about Christianity and praying will not doing anything to stop Big Brother from spying on you and me; will not stop corporate giants from corrupting the government; will not stop profit-driven wars around the globe, and certain will not stop hatred. Your views are limited by the church doctrines and you must unlearn it all before you can see the truths. It’s no where as simple as you think it is.

  • Matooz

    You seem to be confusing racism with prejudice. Prejudice means you have come to a conclusion based on prejudging. Racism is disdain for a race because of a persons belief that the other race is genetically inferior. Also reread your sentence”Its not racism we need to get rid of its tolerance for differences.” Intolerance is what I believe you mean.

  • Kevin Liu

    the difference is that horrible atrocities done by the non-religious are not done in the self righteous name of a deity. for instance, Stalin killed the crap out of a ton of people, but he didn’t pretend he was doing it because any god commanded him to, he did it because he was an asshole who didn’t give a damn about his people’s lives. hitler murdered the crap out of millions of jews in the name of the god of abraham. hindus and muslims rioted and murdered the crap out of each other in the 80s in the name of religion as well. also all the examples i previously stated are good examples as well.
