  • No, it's never okay to be racist.
  • Absolutely not.
  • I think it's okay to be honest! So let's be honest... all racism aside. Certain ethnic groups in this country receive special government handouts just because of their race. This is wrong!
  • Don't be ridiculous. It isn't OK to have any sort of unreasonable bias.
  • nope. never
  • no, I don't think it's ever appropriate.
  • The basis of racism is the denegration of another group of people, usually based on false sterotypes and fear, and it serves to alienate people from one another. That is never an acceptable thing.
  • Not at all...............what purpose does it serve!
  • It is up to the individual.
  • No, it's wrong on a number of levels. Firstly, the most well known problem, is that it tries to create inequality amongst people who are in all truth -equal-. For this reason, racism is not ok. Secondly, it is based off an out-dated, incorrect premise: That there are different races of Human who have significant qualities that either make them better or worse than the other races. This premise is false; there is no such thing as race within the Human species, we are one race. People who point to skin colour (the main example) as an indication of different race need to realise that if skin pigmentation defines race, so does hair colour, eye colour, and tone of voice. These are all patently false, and thus racism as a whole is falsified at step one - racism cannot 'actually' exist, because there is no such thing as race within our species. For this reason, racism is not ok. Thirdly, What we call racism is actually just discrimination based off perceived ethnicity or race, this perception is almost always created based off the naive assumption that skin pigmentation (among other things, though skin pigment certainly seems to be the major factor) is a defining difference between races / ethnicities (it is not). It is an exercise in futility, stupidity, ignorance, and malice. For this reason racism is not ok. ***** Racism is not ok, because it creates inequality where there is none, is based on a false premise, and displays startling ignorance (and usually malice as well).
  • It's not okay for me, and I won't be teaching my children to be. But In being that I am not prejudice, I won't judge anyone who is.
  • The is no reason that can make being racist a good thing.
  • Everyone is racist. It's okay to be racist, just not to act out on it.
  • I don't think it's okay either
  • Everyone is to some extent, they just won't admit it to others or themselves. Like if you are white and your daughter brings a black guy home... Unless you already have an interracial relationship in your family you are going to probably have some racist thoughts.
  • you know I am so glad that I got a lot of answers from people saying that it is not ok to be racist and the reason for this question is because alot of people make alot of fun of my siblings because they are mixed and it really pisses me off!
  • It is OK if that race is attacking my race. The human race
  • its only human to like your own race better than others races, thats how our minds work, competitivly, like, i like my sate and my house better than yours, i like my brad of ciggarettes better than yours, just somthing among those lines, im not really what yo would consider racist, but i wouldnt wanna be any other color than what i am now
  • Its not ok but everyone is entitled to their opinion and thoughts. Just as long as they keep it to them selves and leave my girlfriend and I alone I could care less.
  • is it ok? never is it a reality? always i need to fight my own ignorant stereotypes everyday. anytime your thoughts are " ALL anything"-you are dead wrong. i can look at men of any race and find someone who i find attractive-except one. and no i will not answer which one. its obviously some stupid in bred ignorance on my part. it makes me ashamed.
  • It's most definitely not okay to be racist.
  • No, No, No! Hate should never be apart of the human race!
  • Of course not.But deep down inside, there's a little racism inside all of us, whether you admit it or not.
  • No I don't think laziness is ok. I think there are plenty of VALID reasons to hate someone based on the individual after you take the time to get to know them. Disliking someone because of skin color, sexual orientation, religion, ect is just being lazy.
  • No, it's not okay to be racist. I disagree with the people who are saying that everyone is racist. I actually thought about it for a minute and couldn't find a trace of racism in me. Maybe if I look harder, I will. I talk to everyone, no matter what their skin colour, or how they talk. No matter where they're from. The school that I attend is very multicultural, so I'm used to it! No one should be judged for their skin colour. If anyone judges anyone, it should be for his or her character. Racism is annoying and should not be tolerated, on any level. However, I guess as long as you don't act on it.. then you're safe.
  • OK? NO realistic ? yes anyone who says that are not racist EVER is lyin
  • i dont agree with it no
  • Not at all, i think rascist people should have their teeth pulled out and placed in their toes. then strangled with a beef sausage till they choke on some o that choad lovin
  • to dislike, or hate someone, just because of their race isnt right. people Opinions should be made observing the individual, and NOT the race, or demograph
  • Laundry is the only thing that should be separated by color.
  • hating someone because of their race, creed, religious conviction or sexual preference is wrong.
  • No not at all
  • Absolutely not. Although many people are subconsciously, racism will never be ok.
  • Everyone is racist to a certain degree they just don't admit it. Personally I don't see anything wrong in it, why should people have to hide what they really feel.
  • no its not ok to be racist. Because it is not the person who has done some mistake and get dark coloured skin. People are born with different colour of skin in order to get accustomed in that conditions. eg. people of africa are of black colour, because the temperature they have to bear is so hot that no colour except black can survive. similarly people of india are tan coloured because they have to survive three strong seasons , 7 months of summer, 4 months of winter and 1 month of rain, on an average. similarly citizen of britain and neighbouring countries are always shrouded with clouds and experience little sunshine. So they are white coloured to suit there need in that region. So it is stupidity to differentiate people through their colours.
