    Default Pro-Western TV station in Russia

    There is a pro-Western TV station in Russia that we get at my house. They were discussing Presidential candidates and I could not believe how racist they are. By the way the guy who said the following is Jewish:

    He says something like this: "It is possible America is getting burnt out. I am saying this because I see the popularity of a black-skinned Presidential candidate. In case he wins it would mean that white-skinned population in America and across the World is giving up its supremacy. The repercussions eventually will be felt in many other countries as well. By the way, of course I personally feel McCain is the ideal choice".

    It may be propagandish, but I don't see anything racist in that statement. Of course, I'm relying on a interpreter.

    If you judge anyone by the color of their skin, I think its racist.

    Besides, how is it different than Hitler saying Jews or any other peoples are in the way of German supremacy?

    No, you mischaracterize the nature of racism. The white male resentment crowd have been fed this nonsense, but it's very much a strawman and shows someone who probably hasn't studied history, much less delved into the nature of racism. Here's a hint: if you're part of the class in power (white people), and have been all your life, and your father's life, and his father before him, why would you be interested in racism?

    Because you feel you are losing this power.

    So blacks can't be racists in America?

    First, lets' shuck the racist label. There is no objective standard, and the way you use it is to divert our attention from the problem of racism to something personal in which someone takes offense.

    Black people can certainly engage in bad behavior and they can hate you for the color of your skin, but to accuse them of racism because they brought up the issue of race (or see Big's example from Russian TV) is to ignore the history and nature of racism. Calling someone names alone, even if unfairly, is not racism. Exerting power over another based on that person's race is.

    White people have not been shut out of occupations or other markers of success, or lost their jobs, or walked around in fear for themselves and families, or had policies adverse to their well being made because of their race, or been looked upon with suspicion as they carry out their activities of life.

    I think the real problem with America is not the black people but the jewish people, they hold too much power and they use American recources to help Israel and create propaganda and hatred against Iran.

    They do the same here in Britain, for some reason we can;t arrest Israeli war criminals because there might be resistance but we could let 100 British cops die to catch a muslim terrorist. Also we are one of the few nations that don't criticize Israels illegal bombing of Lebanon, Shame on Britain!!!!!

    Jews have too much power.....

    Lets not forget the Russian jews who take billions in Russian money then buy expensive things in Britain so the Russians can never take the stolen money back off them. They aquired this money thanks to corruption during the shift from communism to capitalism, like Abramovich.

    I think Iran does a pretty good job of bring hatred upon themselves.
