    So I was just wondering if there are any people on this website who used to be racist. I have a few questions for people who were if there are any and they are:

    What caused you to change your mind and stop being racist?

    And for what reason were you racist?


    This post is just help me understand why people can be so hateful.
    Cheers for being anti racist! :thumbsup:

    Not really I was a conformist before I was a nerd and before I became an anarchist punk, and acted like a Homophobe but I was 10 and 11 when I acted like that. I just used gay in a derogatory term a lot to be funny, and that was only for one year, and than I understood that the jocks were trying to make me look stupid, and I grew to hate them. I wasn't very mature back then, and I did not understand anything back then. That was 3 years ago I did not understand what I was talking about. The whole experience of jocks and conformists exploiting me for laughs caused me to become a non-conformist. Learning about Anarchism happened later. I used gay in jokes. I wasn't really a homophobic then I was a child who did not understand that I was being exploited by conformists.

    I think I was a racist towards white people because I HATE them for bascially everything.

    I'm part black, part Haudenosaunee ( primitive north american), and part German.

    I think I still am I racist towards white people a little bit sometimes. It's really on and off.

    Like the fact that we live in European post Imperialism, it's hard not to watch the descendents of the races of the people that dehumanized you, enslaved you, raped your land, murdered your people, and brainwashed you into their agendas and their anti-culture, go around in their suvs and eat at fancy restaurants. I'm not saying this about all white people, but most white people i know, think that their problems are more important, and they look and act better than anyone. And if you act anything above stereotypical, you are a white nigger, or a white indian or something like that. And even if you act like them ( which I don't know why anyone would want to) then they still have to set the ground that they are superior.

    " "I hate you. I hate all the white people. You are thieves and liars. You have taken away our land and made us outcasts." - Sitting Bull

    I don't know if this is racist, but I HATE white agenda and their ways. Sitting Bull isn't racist because he knows who he is and where he comes from, and he knows that what the white people represented then was from white people. And everything about our culture is all from white people. But they have enslaved us so greatly that we DON'T know who we are. We all sacrifice our identities to live in this Spanish, and British colonial dream.

    George Washington and all our founding fathers supported the killing of Indians. And they get stone monuments and shit.

    But I calm myself down and realize that I'm not against all white people, beccause like other races nowadays, they are too STUPID to realize what is really going on, I'm against the white man hiding behind all systems and incharge of everything. I'm against the rich white man, and the one's behind the scenes.

    Throughout history white people have been nothing but greedy, diseased,dirty, thieving, lying, nonhumans that have enslaved our ancestors and with civilization have slowly influenced and controlled us without even our consent, into adopting their heartless, ridiculous, inhumane ways.

    We wonder where our prejudices, and hate stems from. We wonder why their our so many black people on the streets shooting eachother and selling crack with capitalistic mentalities? We wonder why this generation is loosing.

    The way of white, is simply the way of evil, and destruction.

    Tha't s why everybody must rise up against this force.

    What the fuck are you saying? You want a race war? So how are you any better than a white supremacist? Yeah these kinds of comments don't belong on an anarchist site and truthfully neither do you if this is what you really think.

    Not all white people killed the Native Americans or are proud of what their people before them did, and it is stupid to blame an entire race for the US government's slaughter of Native Americans.

    Oh holy fucking shit. :ecouteurs:

    that's not seriously what you are thinking??! :'( :'(

    if it is, fuck off. (or the more diplomatic way punkmar expresses it...)

    you don't really believe that the shit that happened and happens is because of the colour, do you?

    yes, and by thinking and writing THIS, you are actually WORSE than them. talk about stereotypical thinking, jeez... :ecouteurs:

    just don't blame the greed, the lust for power on the white skin. this is simply wrong and does not belong on an anarchist forum.

    best living example for the fact, that there is no thing like a "white" race and for your illusions about "primitive north americans" (derrick jensen will eat you alive - and by the way: you can't believe a "indigenist", can't you?) take a look into the history of the Haudenosaunee people and their role in the colonisation of north america:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iroquois

    You sound a lot like those few surviving german grandpas mourning the long gone "good old days" where everything was nice and easy in the black&white retrospect - come on, you coulnd't be that ignorant and dumb!
    Take a good look into the mirror and contemplate a bit about what the sometimes very smart Nike told you about being blocked by personal problems and your individual oppression - and then tell me if it's right to play the racist's game by just give a false colour.
    and not the french, english or us-colonialist killed the Erie people who were destroyed by the Iroquois in 1654 over competition for the fur trade - black & white, eh?

    oh yes, non-humans and subhumans, "white people" and "jews" - what a desperate exchange of nominates for the "bad" part... guess the next step will be vampire reptilians from outer space enslaving and abusing humanity for the one-world-gov?

    stop reading this primo-anti-civ bullshit, skulldrix, solve your personal problems - and get some background knowledge before you drive yourself mad and become the victim of your own blindness!

    I don't believe this shit happened because of the color, the color is just symbolism. And no I'm not some supremacist, I said we should all rise up against the evil force of the "white man", not "white men".

    Also, I'm not a racist anymore. Even though I cannot not acknowledge the fact that eurocentric ways of living have basically dominated and controlled so many of us "other people", that what we know now of each other is actualy in the perspective of a acclamed superior race, class, and sex.

    You guys are mistaking my anger out of hatred of "white people", when really I'm just defending what I love, humanity.

    Before Spanish conquistadors came to the new land, the primitive did not refer to themselves as indians, or reds or white or black or any of that shit, they referred to themselves as human beings.

    So that's who I staad for, human, beings.

    But It's important to realize, for everyone to realize that this hateful power, does abide by itself as a certain profile, a race, sex, class, and way of behaving.

    I'm not even focused on race that much, I told you I'm against the white man that is hiding behiind the scenes. And I'm telling you like it is, that is true, civilization is out of the birth of European imperialism.

    I thought this is about post racism? lol

    I don't have personal problems with white people ( even though we all kind of do)

    But on the other hand I'm not saying that EVERYBODY THORUGH HISTORY WERE ALL SAINTS. The ancient aztecs sacrificed and enslaved their people and other confeds.

    The Moors enslaved the spanish centuries ago.

    And european christians basically tried to wipe out the celtics, and druid people centuries ago also.

    And you honestly, should know that I do read mroe than Derick Jensen ( who you claim to be just another white man), from people of various backgrounds.

    I'm all for smashing racism, but we have to realize that racism still does play a role in how we view the world, how we look at ourselves and eachother, etc.

    For example, my aunt the other day rubbed her fingers through my hair and said " It''s okay for you to wear your hair ( unstraightened) and short because you got that good hair".

    And then I looked at her hair, which was permed and striaghtened, and used to be kinky like mine, and I thought, why does she think you have to have curly of straight hair for it to be good? Then I realized that this is a eurocentric view that has implanted itself in her eyes.

    But I don't even care about that stuff anymore really, I'm more focused on economics.

    so what you call the cultural stage your Haudenosaunee-ancestors reached before making contact with european colonialists?
    and after reading your last posts on the "porn"- and the television-threads:
    how much of your black and white moralistic view is part of the typical "eurocentric" view on us "other people"?

    The Hodenosaunee were Algonquians, and Iroquios.

    The truth is they had some wars for a while, and then they saw how it was wrong, and then they formed peaceful democracies and confederacies for hundreds of years, living I suppose the ideal anarchist way. And then the settlers arrived.

    And Indigenous wars are WAY different than European warfare. Few people die, and it's usually forged at a long distance and involves strong emotional and spiritual ritualistic tactics.

    I don't remember what I wrote on porn accept the truth being that it does market standards of how men should view women etc.

    I don't see the world as black and white. Infact,if you wanna go that way I have more in common with you then I have with most so-called black people.

    And also the fact that we are speaking English and not our descendents tongues can be viewed as white centric moralistic views, but we are both natives to america and raised in american ways ( which you can say are 100% eurocentric based on it's history), but somehwere growing up we felt a certain pain in our lives and started to question everything.

    guess you weren't reading this one:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iroquois
    they were Iroquios siding with the british and fighting the Algonquians (allied to the french), recruiting young Algonquians taken hostage and forster-raised to make up the Iroquios' losses inflicted by their constant warfare.
    i wonder what they did with "enemies" too old to be re-educated? and this happend long before the Iroquois met the colonialists...
    tribal warfare & "strong emotional and spiritual ritualistic tactics":
    1654 the Iroquois exterminated the Erie people competeting with them in the fur-trade, a complete tribe vanished out of history.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tribalism
    that much about "tribalism" and the myth of the "noble savage"?
    didn't you call prostitutes and people working in wage-slavery whores? thats what i call a derogatory term - especially if used by a person not experienced in taking over self-responsibility...
    is it so hard to understand that we aren't "colours", so-called black people or white or whatever - but the descendants of ONE bunch of people leaving africa and adapting slightly differently to different biotopes/habitats - so that the skin tone is the least part of any possible differences between people. you don't share anything more or less with me than with every other living human on earth.
    if we would speak our "native" tongues we wouldn't be able to communicate at all - because then i would speak german (i lived in the u.s. only for a while, my parents were kinda nomadic artists, dragging me all around the globe).
    and if you ever make it across the atlantic and visit europe you will see how different the living is here compared to the u.s. - talk about this bullshit stereotype "eurocentric view" - and not only because of this i think you should really start to question derrick jensen and the other rat-catchers you obviously read without background-knowledge.

    Weren't the Erie people cleansed by the other Iriquois because they accepted immigration from rival tribes.
