How many point would you get for dating an extremist Muslin girl?

apropos racism: much of it is hidden, unconscious, deep down in our op.system and language

Harvard's "Project Implicit" has an interesting IAT (self-)test online (of which i learned from recommended_reading-> "Blink" )

sad that we as a society haven't progressed further, but fun reminder of needing to evolve further

I started laughing as soon as I saw the graphic.... I do think maybe the racist brain is a little large on there but I guess we're supposed to know it's there....somewhere.

That was very funny. And Alan, Muslin isn't a race nor a religion nor a person, I think it is a cloth of some kind. So no points for that unless we get them for inanimate iNotRacist actions too. :^)

Yes, Gene that is true, muslin is cotton fabric sometimes used for sheets. I'm just going to hope that Allan didn't actually go to site, otherwise that would be so embarrassing for him, because we all know he was not talking about dating a sheet.

Muslin is a lightweight woven cotton fabric that comes in two colors, unbleached and bleached. In the 19th century it also came in "sprigged" but I think that turned into calico somewhere. Well, actually in Calcutta LOL.

People who "count point" like this apply the mind set to EVERYTHING. Sorry, guys, life doesn't quantify.

Joanne - I agree - People who "count point" like this apply the mind set to EVERYTHING. Sorry, guys, life doesn't quantify.

Funny you had an artcile about Lincoln Kit and he is mentioned here - is sort-of sad where we are in our lives - but did like the portable door.

Bardzo dobry ten rysunek z mózgami, rasista ma ściśnięty umysł (łagodnie mówiąc). Na szczęście zwierzęta nie rozróżniają ras i rasiści z nich powinni brać przykład.

I think the video made a strong impact, or it did for me. Unfortunately many do live for a "point count" even though the count is all their personal illusion.

The graphic is very misleading. It implies that racists have a brain and can use it. I have found no such evidence in the real world.

Thanks Kit.

I was wondering why racists and homophobes didn't unite and create their own political party, then realized that they already have.

The Conservative Brain - Born To FEAR The OTHER - BOO !!

I think the video made a good point of showing us how insane it is to be racist in the first place. It pokes fun back at us. And a lot of us deserve it for things we're not even conscious of. Hopefully, with familiarity and understanding we can be respectful of each other and appreciate each other for the diversity and not use this learning for negative purposes.

As Ms Franklin says R - E - S - P - E - C - T

One of my grandfathers was a racist to the degree that at the ripe old age of 10, I refused to go and see him, even when he died about 45 years ago. I have never forgiven him and I don't feel sorry for that.

I found myself remembering the petition from late last week that Franco sent out about an app on Google and Apple that purely homophobic. Apple it removed it from their on-line store but Google did not. Last time I saw, the petition was closing in on 200,000 supporters.

Love prevents racism, ask the Nazis they were experts on hate and racism.
Love and Peace
