xaq75 Posted July 17, 2008 Report Share Posted July 17, 2008 'ello I've read an article in the Scientific American Mind magazine about bigotry and it's set me to thinking about just how racist, sexist, ageist, classist etc I am.For example, I see way more black men with white woman than black woman with white men and it bothers me. I have no problem with people choosing parteners of another race but I feel kinda threatened by the lack of black woman with white men (I am a white male). I feel somehow demographically excluded by my perceptions ( I say perception because I don't know if what I'm seeing is really whats happening societally). I'd like to see more black woman with white men. I've gotten to the point now that I actually smile when I see a black woman with a white man ... crazy.What does this mean?I think this is me being racist but it's not the traditional 'black bad, white good' or vice versa kind of thinking. Is racism deminishing or is it simply permutating as perceptions of race become embellished. I have grown up being exposed repeatedly to stereotypes of blacks and whites and they seem to be ingrained, along with stereotypes of men and woman, young and old, poor and rich, fat thin etc etc. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
