I much prefer Obama to McCain, and I do not give a damn who stands for what party, as long as I like their policies. Of course, if they are an ex-dictator, especially a facist dictator, I would assassinate them

I've experienced a weird kind of racism...more like discrimination. Directed at me, my friends and whoever speaks English. But I think it's straightened up.

Consider Obama's presidency as proof (for the stupid racist people) that a "black guy" can be the most powerful person in the country and that race doesn't matter when running for president.

There's a dude at my table who's kinda rasict.
He said: "...because no one likes black people."

Me: -_-' "You asshole. That's frickin' rasict."

But he's autistic, so he had no idea what he just said. :P

(Pardon my French. XD)

I know exactly what you are talking about. I am a Ugandan and when tourists come here, some of them think we are stupid or sick or germ infected just because we are black. I mean like this is my country here.....duh!

O.e
When I went to South Africa, my mum chatted with local students on a trip to the cape of good hope.
Freaking racist people.

Racism towards African-Americans actually isn't very present where I live. In my county, it's probably 50% black, 20% Hispanic, 15% Asian and 15% White. So the majority of where I live, people are more racist towards Asians or Whites.
The other day, my friends and I saw this group of teenage boys, and when they saw us, they pointed at us, screamed "GHOSTS!" and ran away, laughing.
And my friend gets called a vampire a lot.

However, that's in my neighborhood. At my school, which is a private, it's almost the opposite. A kindergartener was playing with Barbie dolls during recess, and someone offered him one of the black dolls, and he refused it. She asked why not, and he said, "Because it's brown!" and threw it at a wall.
It's terrible that parents can pound racism into kids' heads at such a small age. D:

there's not much racism where i live because it's basically "asian infested" here. and as for the people from minorities (european, etc.), we're pretty accepting to them as well.

My best friend is black. We attend a white majority school. Some guys called her Sasquatch because she has dark skin, is tall and not allowed to shave. She also hears plenty of racist jokes, like: What do you call a black preacher? Holy s---.

Her father is an ER doctor. He has resuciatated (don't think I spelled that right) people- bringing them back to life. He had an injured white man that refused to be treated by a black doctor, although easily qualified.

My school is in a high income area. Racism does exist today, even if it's not written on signs.

That's a point. I think my mom was kind of hoping that he would actually behave in such a way so that it would help... I don't know. I'm not getting into a political argument.
