*sigh*

Goddamn you, Bex. Skinhead =/= Racist fucktard. The ones who run around calling themselves 'skinheads' and hold racist beliefs are actually known as 'boneheads'.

Thank you. Me mum was a skin back in the day in England. Skins are basically working class punks, hence OI!. There's the old-ish joke:

There's a three storey apartment building. The first floor is full of punks, the second is full of hippies, and the third, skins. One day a fire breaks out in the basement. Who survived? The skins, they were at work.

Also, anyone who thinks skinheads are just about neo-nazism should look up SHARP

Jesus, declaring that all or even most skinheads are racists is just as bad as going around saying all black women are lazy asses who live in the ghetto with their 15 children, that all mexicans in the US are illegal immigrants or that all non white males will r@pe any white woman they see and sell her kidneys for crack.

You know it. Anyone who deals in absolutes is an asshole.

^ no longer sure if that's the phrase I was looking for, but it'll do.

You know what's even more annoying than racism? Anti-racism. Yes, racism is ignorant and asshole-ish, but MY GOD. Say the word n*gger in America and your professional career is finished. People have developed such knee-jerk aversions to racism because it's the popular opinion, and it makes you feel like a defender of justice and human rights, despite the fact that not one of us completely lacks prejudice. So, there are racists. Roll your eyes and get on with life. You're never offended by something unless you LET IT offend you.

Anti racism is fighting racism. Isn't it obvious?
And you think anti-racism is worse than racism?

It's obviously bad for people who want to call others racial slurs. We're just busybodies impeding other people's freedom of speech....obviously....

Oh, come off it. Didn't I already say racism is disagreeable? There's barely even such a thing as oppression nowadays in the Western world, white people have developed such a fear of being racist that they become even more conscious of racial difference than before. Some of my relatives are prejudiced like that, but do they do anything other than talking negatively about minorities in the privacy of their own homes? No. Are they monsters? No, they were just raised in a different environment. The extremists who turn it into a calling and form militant groups and shit should be watched, of course.

I remember when my Grandma was still alive living in Cali's Bay Area... When we would go to San Francisco, she'd always be scared of "the gays", even when I told her some of my best friends were gay. Different times, indeed.

I guess it's nice for you to have been born in a privileged enough position that you are completely detached from the racism which is still ubiquitous in society.

Priveleged? Detached from racism? Haha! I've lived in the South my entire life.
Well, you're definitely not the Alan I was thinking of. He could comprehend simple English. Carry on, you defender of injustice!

Doktor Haus by your own words you admit that prejudice is common and a rather integrated and normal part of life, do you think that the kind of mindset that leads to such talk ends with just words behind closed doors?

"I'm not racist. I'm just pissed because it's socially unacceptable to call black people ******s. Also, if they're offended by that then it's totes just 'cause they need to grow thicker skin and get over it, not because I'm an over privileged little white boy who's never so much as spoken to a minority so it's not like I don't understand what it's like or anything. I mean, I don't get offended when someone calls me honkey, so why should they be offended if I call them a "******"?"

This fuck off fest is the most civil I've ever witnessed. I suppose the individual ideals of a single Skin Head could differ from the group. I hate it when various people act as though they speak my beliefs or people assume I would be against gay marriage or legalization of hemp because I'm a Republican.

So carry on with you're meaningful discussions about life and such.
