    So I have a friend of mine and I know her for a long time. Recently she said to me, that she doesnt likes arabs, and sent me some lame racist song. :anti-nazi: :S
    Can I save her somehow? o_O :ecouteurs: :/
    How would you communicate with her or with any other racially prejudiced person you know?

    :antifa:

    What are you, some kind of priest or exorcist?
    Try giving her some good arguments against her belives.Tell her that she is brainwashed by Obama and her loving country.
    I also had friends that are racially prejudiced and i tried to give them a chance and time to change, but few of them changed little bit for the better and eventually friendship seized to be.
    I do not have time for that kind of people, no mather friend or foe.
    Just like Aus Rotten said:Fuck Nazi sympathy! that is my credo.

    I find it best to divert their hate towards something else, like the state, and slowly show them why. Always have evidence, show them why they need to hate the state, while at the same time showing them that racism is just a tool to distract us from the real problems at hand. Its important to take it slow, and once they start agreeing with you, just keep saying things you know they will respond well too, while at the same time, breaking down their old prejudices. You do it too quick, there just gonna label you a crazy anarchist.

    Nope :lmao:

    Yes, I tried to explain her, that she cannot generalize, and simply pointing to other people of different ethnicity is an ignorant and dumb thing.
    Thanks to both of you for your advice. It was a shock for me, that someone in my vicinity has such opinions, so I hastly wrote here. :D

    Do you have any other similar experiences?

    I can't believe someone still talks about racial things today. Right now is the year 2014 and racism is not cool, out of date and old-fashioned.

    Racism will exist until capitalism exists. It is always easier to blame people of different ethnicity for your social situation, than to change the system.
    I guess comsumerism and tv makes people dumb and ignorant. :S

    There is no communicating with the racially prejudiced.

    Sad but true. They even voted in the fascist Marian Kotleba in the regional elections. He is now a governor of a county. :ecouteurs:

    I have a friend who claims not to be racist but listens to RAC bands. But he also listens to The Oppressed and Oi Polloi. I ask why and all he says is he likes the music.

    I can't understand why these unlucky people are being racists. perhaps they have their nerve damage? or perhaps people are actually not racist, but some evil politicians miscarriage the issue for their own benefit.
