Who says "whitey" anyhow, except dudes from 1970's blaxploitation films?

You must live in a bubble. I live in a state with lots of minorities and am surrounded by more and more hate each year. Since Obama has been elected, they've been emboldened and more 'in-your-face' than ever before.

You do have a point about the 'whitey' adjective. They actually call us much worse. The TMF filter would probably not allow it. So I stayed with the 'whity' word. And yes..I was a teen in the 70's.

There is a lot of racism out there and outright hatred of 'white' people. It's pretty scary actually. Once they have trouble getting food, who do you think they are going to 'try' to take down?

I actually have a unique perspective on it. My adopted daughter is 1/2 black and 1/2 white and comes home with very disturbing stories. Black kids automatically assume she is 'one of them' and share with her what they really think about white people. Her being 1/2 white and with adoptive, white, conservative, Christian parents ...she has been taught properly.

Believe me, many (far too many) black parents are trashing 'white' people at home and their kids learn it and copy it. We are the 'devil' to many of them, despite voting in a 'black' president....twice.
