Princeton:
Say, Kate, can I ask you a question?

Kate Monster:
Sure!

Princeton:
Well, you know Trekkie Monster upstairs?

Kate Monster:
Uh huh.

Princeton:
Well, he's Trekkie Monster, and you're Kate Monster.

Kate Monster:
Right.

Princeton:
You're both Monsters.

Kate Monster:
Yeah.

Princeton:
Are you two related?

Kate Monster:
What?! Princeton, I'm surprised at you! I find that racist!

Princeton:
Oh, well, I'm sorry! I was just asking!

Kate Monster:
Well, it's a touchy subject.
No, not all Monsters are related.
What are you trying say, huh?
That we all look the same to you?
Huh, huh, huh?

Princeton:
No, no, no, not at all. I'm sorry,
I guess that was a little racist.

Kate Monster:
I should say so. You should be much more
careful when you're talking about the
sensitive subject of race.

Princeton:
Well, look who's talking!

Kate Monster:
What do you mean?

Princeton:
What about that special Monster School you told me about?

Kate Monster:
What about it?

Princeton:
Could someone like me go there?

Kate Monster:
No, we don't want people like you-

Princeton:
You see?!

You're a little bit racist.

Kate Monster:
Well, you're a little bit too.

Princeton:
I guess we're both a little bit racist.

Kate Monster:
Admitting it is not an easy thing to do...

Princeton:
But I guess it's true.

Kate Monster:
Between me and you,
I think

Both:
Everyone's a little bit racist
Sometimes.
Doesn't mean we go
Around committing hate crimes.
Look around and you will find
No one's really color blind.
Maybe it's a fact
We all should face
Everyone makes judgments
Based on race.

Princeton:
Now not big judgments, like who to hire
or who to buy a newspaper from -

Kate Monster:
No!

Princeton:
No, just little judgments like thinking that Mexican
busboys should learn to speak goddamn English!

Kate Monster:
Right!

Both:
Everyone's a little bit racist
Today.
So, everyone's a little bit racist
Okay!
Ethinic jokes might be uncouth,
But you laugh because
They're based on truth.
Don't take them as
Personal attacks.
Everyone enjoys them -
So relax!

Princeton:
All right, stop me if you've heard this one.

Kate Monster:
Okay!

Princeton:
There's a plan going down and there's only
one paracute. And there's a rabbi, a priest...

Kate Monster:
And a black guy!

Gary Coleman:
Whatchoo talkin' 'bout Kate?

Kate Monster:
Uh...

Gary Coleman:
You were telling a black joke!

Princeton:
Well, sure, Gary, but lots of people tell black jokes.

Gary Coleman:
I don't.

Princeton:
Well, of course you don't - you're black!
But I bet you tell Polack jokes, right?

Gary Coleman:
Well, sure I do. Those stupid Polacks!

Princeton:
Now, don't you think that's a little racist?

Gary Coleman:
Well, damn, I guess you're right.

Kate Monster:
You're a little bit racist.

Gary Coleman:
Well, you're a little bit too.

Princeton:
We're all a little bit racist.

Gary Coleman:
I think that I would
Have to agree with you.

Princeton/Kate Monster:
We're glad you do.

Gary Coleman:
It's sad but true!
Everyone's a little bit racist -

All right!

Kate Monster:
All right!

Princeton:
All right!

Gary Coleman:
All right!
Bigotry has never been
Exclusively white

All:
If we all could just admit
That we are racist a little bit,
Even though we all know
That it's wrong,
Maybe it would help us
Get along.

Princeton:
Oh, Christ do I feel good.

Gary Coleman:
Now there was a fine upstanding black man!

Princeton:
Who?

Gary Coleman:
Jesus Christ.

Kate Monster:
But, Gary, Jesus was white.

Gary Coleman:
No, Jesus was black.

Kate Monster:
No, Jesus was white.

Gary Coleman:
No, I'm pretty sure that Jesus was black-

Princeton:
Guys, guys...Jesus was Jewish!

Brian:
Hey guys, what are you laughing about?

Gary Coleman:
Racism!

Brian:
Cool.

Christmas Eve:
BRIAN! Come back here!
You take out lecycuraburs!

Princeton:
What's that mean?

Brian:
Um, recyclables.
Hey, don't laugh at her!
How many languages do you speak?

Kate Monster:
Oh, come off it, Brian!
Everyone's a little bit racist.

Brian:
I'm not!

Princeton:
Oh no?

Brian:
Nope!

How many Oriental wives
Have you got?

Christmas Eve:
What? Brian!

Princeton:
Brian, buddy, where you been?
The term is Asian-American!

Christmas Eve:
I know you are no
Intending to be
But calling me Oriental -
Offensive to me!

Brian:
I'm sorry, honey, I love you.

Christmas Eve:
And I love you.

Brian:
But you're racist, too.

Christmas Eve:
Yes, I know.
The Jews have all
The money
And the whites have all
The power.
And I'm always in taxi-cab
With driver who no shower!

Princeton:
Me too!

Kate Monster:
Me too!

Gary Coleman:
I can't even get a taxi!

All:
Everyone's a little bit racist
It's true.
But everyone is just about
As racist as you!
If we all could just admit
That we are racist a little bit,
And everyone stopped being
So PC
Maybe we could live in -
Harmony!

Christmas Eve:
Evlyone's a ritter bit lacist!

does this mean i'm racist now lol!

I find it odd people have a problem with this

yes everyone is a little bit racsit our brains are wired through evolution for this to be the case, in the distance past is was a useful trait but mankind has evolved and now we must move the other way to support larger social units with greater capacity for innovation and production.

why they still are racsit... more so than average. What I am Actually implying is they are primitive and less evolved than a someone with less racsit tendencies.

it's like saying you're tall... well you are on some scale of height Rolling Eyes doesn't mean you are the tallest or even tall by all scales of height.



It is not about being colour blind either, is this seriously what people think in the UK, still, in the year 2015?
I am not sure if it is just the posters here or what but a lot of you act like I would expect someone in the 80's or 90's to react to Multiculturalism.

people are individuals It doesn't matter what colour their skin is, that doesn't mean you don't see it, it means you treat them as an Individual like everyone else.

the problem isn't even stereotypes themselves, it is Idiots that then think a stereotype justifies treating an individual differently.

I agree with all your points Veya.
All of them.

So how are we any different except that I'm not afraid to speak out when something is wrong because I'm not worried about small and narrow-minded people calling me racist?

I can tell you're not around many black people on a really personal level, because you don't (and not just you) really get that back people, in particular, will often mention their colour before anyone else! As a proud statement or a reference to what they believe is better

Example: they'll tell you that the food is bland and where is the hot pepper sauce??! That they like a pepper sauce - give it some heat man, give it some flavour!
And as white liberals you smile and nod and go "blah blah yes"


However, taking the same analogy, not ONE of you whites on her would ever dream of saying to a black person at your dinner table "Jesus you black peoples love your pepper sauce!"
In other words, you'd NEVER EVER bring up could first!!

That makes black people know that you're false and scared and tippy-toeing.
And it's irritating and slightly sad.

So no, there's no such thing as being colour-blind.
It's fucking impossible.

I wouldn't say that because I wouldn't assume that all black people like pepper sauce, or that all non-black people don't.

I might say to someone - black or white - that the pepper sauce is not giving anything flavour, it's actually covering up any flavour.

That wasn't really the point rags.
The hypothetical situation was what I meant - if that pepper-sauce situation happened, no body who was white, would dare mention the colour of the person's skin.

Because black people often mention their colour! As I mentioned above?

Whites people shy away from it - why, I don't know? - but black people may often refer to their colour or roots or differences with a person of different colour?

Besides that, I love to talk to my best friend, who's Asian, about what her family does differently (their weddings for example, go on for about seven days!!)
It's a constant source of amusement to us both.

And what's the point of being friends if you can't talk about your similarities or differences or what's important to you?

And being black, the whole cultural thing, is important to a black person!

I don't think that white people mention colour generally though. They don't constantly go on about being white, so why would they refer to the colour of black people either?

I don't know why being black is a cultural thing anyway - not in the UK.

Actually Indians and Asian always comment that i eat like them. In part because I do.. I have a similar chili Threshold (I assume that is what you mean by pepper, here pepper means peppercorns) You cant be in Sydney and not be around Indians and Asians most of the time, in Blacktown white people are still the most common but they are not 50% anymore. This is why I think you guys sounds so silly I LIVE IN A SUCCESSFUL MULTICULTURAL SUBURB, Whites(about half Anglo) made up about 40% my high school about 30% Asian and 20% Indian, 10% other (it is up there as one of the most multicultural areas in the nation and on the planet). 

I find chop sticks and spoon more natural to use, since i use them more than knife and fork Wink

And Aussies of any decent rip on each other mercilessly Razz Razz Razz Razz Razz  it is how to tell someone is Aussie Laughing Laughing  did they insult you in a friendly manner, must be an Aussie and not a tourist. pirat pirat pirat

Indians get teased about their chilis and Curries all the time.
And people make that comment about some Indians, that wont eat anything not smothered in chili sauce, it is considered bad form or low class, the same as smothering something in Tomato Sauce (Anglo Aussie stereotype)
Asians are generally better at eating things as they are meant to be served, if they go to European style restaurant it is to eat European style food so they don't use extra sauces, unless that is part of the meal. 

 

See Raggs Sounds like she has the attitude from the 80's or 90's, you can say that as it is statically true enough and it is not hurting anyone. What would be wrong would be making the assumption then Pouring chili sauce all over someone lunch because they are Indian  Surprised

Like I said to victor the problem is not 'white' or PC it is "the British lack of sensibility" since other white nations with PC laws don't have the issue.  I assume it is just you are the a decade or 2 behind other English speaking nations when it comes to multiculturalism.

Perhaps you're right Veya who knows? Perhaps we are "behind" or perhaps England has been over-PC'd?
Perhaps we've been so told off for so many things that we are now afraid to say things?

Also, England is divided by class; there's a big difference between the wealthy and the poor.
You're more likely to find a more honest mix of people in the lower classes than the upper classes - where conversations and ribbing about colour are a daily occurance.

In affluent areas and small villages you'll have a few token blacks and Asians and this is what white people call "mixing and multicultural life" yeah righto.....

Is is fuck!!!

See Veya, what you, and a lot of other people on this forum don't get is this; a lot of lefties who say they "love" multiculturalism and "love" other cultures and who "love" immigration... DO NOT ACTUALLY LIVE IT AT ALL!
They live in cosy villages and little areas of Britain where they're not actually affected by anything like lack of housing etc
They live in cosy areas of Britain where crime is low and they don't get burgled or mugged or have gangs of youths hanging around.
They live in cosy areas of Britain where they don't even actually mix with any person of a different colour and if they happen to - they think they are very diverse and left and liberal and they pat themselves on the back.

If these same lefties were moved to inner city suburbs where a lot of black boys are dealing drugs with their white counterparts (or vice versa) and a lot of Muslims were taking the place of their little grandchildren in a good school - well then, what do you think those lefties would say then????

It's easy to be unaffected by something if you're unaffected by it

Asians are generally better at eating things as they are meant to be served, if they go to European style restaurant it is to eat European style food so they don't use extra sauces, unless that is part of the meal. 

 

See Raggs Sounds like she has the attitude from the 80's or 90's, you can say that as it is statically true enough and it is not hurting anyone. What would be wrong would be making the assumption then Pouring chili sauce all over someone lunch because they are Indian  Surprised

Like I said to victor the problem is not 'white' or PC it is "the British lack of sensibility" since other white nations with PC laws don't have the issue.  I assume it is just you are the a decade or 2 behind other English speaking nations when it comes to multiculturalism.

Are you saying that I have an attitude from the '80s or '90s, or that eddie does?

See Veya, what you, and a lot of other people on this forum don't get is this; a lot of lefties who say they "love" multiculturalism and "love" other cultures and who "love" immigration... DO NOT ACTUALLY LIVE IT AT ALL!
They live in cosy villages and little areas of Britain where they're not actually affected by anything like lack of housing etc
They live in cosy areas of Britain where crime is low and they don't get burgled or mugged or have gangs of youths hanging around.
They live in cosy areas of Britain where they don't even actually mix with any person of a different colour and if they happen to - they think they are very diverse and left and liberal and they pat themselves on the back.

So the actual issue is British People??? is that what you just said. Suspect
that there is a bunch of British people sitting in their little village insulated from the pressures of the modern globalized world that think "right old chap, we can just keep on keeping on like grandpappy did".. that Ultimately then try and avoid the fair and just costs of immigration, which means that yes there is significant investment in cities and their infrastructure. 

Cause I am saying that, and people say I am anti British, i am saying that often the poorer Brits are blaming the wrong people. it is not the immigrant coming with no money that is Willing let alone Able to Pay more than a fair price for housing.. it is your own rich (plus Chinese and eastern European investors) that are the cause of the housing cost issues
Same in Sydney, literally I have just bought out of Sydney the city i was born and raised and the only one i have lived in because it. And even then without my parents help in providing cheap accommodation in Sydney(so I can keep my good paying job) I would be screwed out of ever owning a home... these issue are NOT unique to the UK they are all over the world in safe rich cities it is the reality of globalization.


and as the son of an migrant.... I get the feeling some of you one here would have complained about me and my friends as youths hanging out at the local park. And quite frankly, as a teen, If I endured the sort of hatred that is often displayed towards migrants on this site by some of the British posters, I really Doubt I would have the love of Australia that I and most 'Children of Migrants' here have.
Britain is making a rod for it's own back, and the disaffected youth are a product of it's own attitude towards those same youths as children....

My country right or wrong?  So if you were German you would have fought for Hitler? Or been a camp guard?

That's why we had the Nuremburg Trials, because soldiers said 'they were only doing their duty' and it was not a defence then and it's not a defence now.  If you are willing to put your morals aside for anything you are part of the problem.

Rubbish Nicko, if your philosphy is 'my country right or wrong', than means you are exactly the same at the concentration camp guards who said 'they had to follow their orders'.   Essentially what you are saying is 'I give up my brain, my morals, my sense of right and wrong and will do whatever terrible thing you want me to do'.

That happened many years ago and it now happens to this day to the descendants of the invaders (invited or otherwise)

Well then. Pretty useles for you to be calling ANYONE a racist when EVERYONE is a little bit racist.

I love this argument form: If you can find it anywhere else, then it's acceptable here.

Yo, does it ever occur to fix it in both places?

The word 'racist' should be removed from every country in the world.

And the way to do that is simple, remove racism. A term without a referent will die of its own accord.

I don't believe everyone is a 'little bit racist'....not if the term 'racist' means looking down on people of a different race to your own.

Maybe my view is formed because I am a white brit living in a predominately white country, and apart from forums I don't see a lot of racism around.

Here's a thought -- is it more accurate to say that everyone starts out a little racist? I had some racist views when I was younger that experience cured me of.

every one is, we are a tribal social species, as our brains develop they instinctively seek out to define which group(s) it belongs to. In early childhood it is more often gender groups than racial groups but it will identify 'social groups' as it develops further... the catch is that in Human society many 'Social groups' like nationality are defined by racial aspects.  the advancement of Multiculturalism may redefine a social group to be inclusive of various racial aspects.

We Veya, I'm being completely honest here, having never lived in one place for longer then 2 years when I was growing up and in many countries, in towns, villages and country, in Malay kampungs, Chinese areas and German towns, I have no tribe.  I am part Maltese, part Jewish, part who knows what.  I sound 'posh' I have been told, but when I was a teenager I was told I sounded American because I had picked up such a mixture of accents.  Eddie and I have agreed about laughing at things some would find racist when people take the piss out of each other, but I can say, hand on heart that although I 'see' people's colour, because your eyes have to register it, in the internal processing of the person's impact on me, the colour of their skin simply doesn't count.  Do they smile?  Are they happy, sad, miserable, grumpy?  Do their eyes twinkle?  Are they friendly or stand offish?  Is their voice harsh or gentle, to do appear to treat others with respect?  All these things register, not their actual colour.

LW tribe Cool 'citizens of the world' tribe, Musical Taste Tribe  Wink
The first is normally along gender lines 'Girls play with dolls' and gender stereotypes are and Extension of this. tribes are not defined by skin colour, but often can be defined by skin colour due to the historical groupings and isolation of genes.
 
Everyone has a tribe(s), Homo sapiens Actually Develop serious mental issues without one like any social animal kept in isolation.
Of course there is the degree to which the individual is a conformist or rebellious which may reduce the strength of bonds etc but only 'True Psychopaths' have 'No tribe' and therefore no social connections or identity at all.

Ben's post is pretty much how I feel. Though there is nothing wrong with acknowledging differences in different peoples.

But we should be aware of the majority who may be 'a little bit racist' and the difference between that and the dangerous stronger racism harboured by some people. Don't trivialise the issue by suggesting the views on race of some posters here are 'just the same' as those of some posters elsewhere.

I  have to disagree as I felt the opposite. You start 'pure' (unknowledgeable about which tribes you belong to) and over time become aware of your 'tribes'.

My tribe is 'westie' meaning from western Sydney and as a consequence of being one of the most multicultural places on the planet it includes people of lots of races in my tribe.

this 'tribal identification' is much better studied in gender roles but the science is the same,  as the brain is developing it actively seeks to identify the groups it belongs to, it is theorized that apart from 'herd protection' it is also to learn and mimic the 'correct' adults for the child to takes it's place in the tribe later. 

[size=undefined]A child's earliest exposure to what it means to be male or female comes from parents. Children internalise their parent's messages regarding gender at an early age, with awareness of adult sex role differences being found in two year old children [/size][size=undefined](Witt, 1997).[/size]
