    I think misogynistic hatred and racial hatred generally manifest themselves differently which is why it's hard to say one is worse.


    Women are often pedestalised so long as they conform to male expectations and then dehumanised if they fail to confirm, sort of like pampered prisoners which is why things like spousal abuse happen in a very private way. Whereas the initial thinking behind racism was to stop Black people who were enslaved rising up and now much of the thinking is poorly educated low class Whites who don't like competition for dwindling low skilled labour jobs.
    i still dont see how thats worst than being a black person today. as valid as the white women struggle is, a POC would kill to be in their position. Especially women POC because they suffer all the issues of women but also suffer racism.

    Racism is not isolated to poor working class whites. Racism is in all sects of society and is upheld by the institutions we live in. Racism is very much a middle and upper class problem

    Been there OP, the shock itself is like a wake up call.

    Living in London is a completely different situation to the rest of England tbh. I don't think I ever experienced racism in London, apart from inbred kids when I was growing up.

    In my experience the worst kind of racism is the covert kind. You can consciously feel that your the "other", people make subtle jokes, leave you out of conversations etc, it can make you feel subhuman almost.

    As nice a place England is I think that there still exists an underlying culture of racism which wont go away no matter how diverse it gets, though I always wanted to live here when I grow up the more I see more of it the more out of place I feel.

    Literally...whites are the ones that oppressed us and lynched us and raped us and whipped us and swore at us and degraded us and used n***er as a dehumanising slur like how in the world did you jump to the conclusion that "whitey" and the n word were the same??? YOU ARE soooo sad like don't quote me until you read up on what "whiteys" did to the n***ers they took from their country to the USA to abuse....

    Well is she's Somalian then she isn't a descendant of a white owned slave therefore she cannot use that as a jingoistic excuse for antagonising people.

    So I go to a university in Cornwall which is a predominately white county. I'm in my second year of university and so far I hadn't experienced any racist encounters, but I have other black friends who have. Last night as I was sitting at the bus stop waiting to go on a night out, a car drove past me and the old guy in it shouted the 'N' word at me and stuck his finger up. At first I was so shocked that I was in disbelief, I didn't want to believe he had just said it but he did. That was the first time in my entire life I've had anyone call me, and I was extremely upset when it happened.

    So the point of my post is to ask other ethnic students at predominately white universities, have you ever experienced racism? If so how did you deal with it?
    The rural areas around the country are often predominately white so unfortunately there will be some racism, although I don't believe the majority of people are. On the plus side if he's never seen much of the world then he was probably some inbred with twelve toes.

    Some of the comments on here are appalling, so many of you are so ignorant. Just because it doesn't happen to you doesn't mean it doesn't affect the person that it does happen to.

    For example, someone could lose their dad and even though it wouldn't hurt you personally because the deceased man is not your father, try to think of it from their point of view. They wouldn't expect you to mourn for them. Just ps0akdkff

    And just before you think about quoting me to start some form of debate, there's literally no point because I won't reply :kiss:

    Was the only brown kid in my 6th form in a rural town coming from a mostly East Indian/black city in the Caribbean. I'm not even black and was called the n word and other stuff. I fought a lot with neighbours, students and staff, whatever, you know. Learning experience.


    I've since moved but dealt with it for 3 yrs. Not a good feeling at all but I've become hardened and don't really empathize because I'm sure you've experienced racism before if you're more pragmatic about things, just not such explicit racism as that old fool.

    It's definitely not all you can do...but it seems like the best option. I had to adjust myself but in the beginning I was swinging at everyone, because I wasn't used to it. I'm from the Caribbean lol

    Yea, for short term satisfaction. But it only works when you're a teenager; I can't do **** like that anymore. Which is crazy because if it were reversed, a white guy might get away with his violence upon someone of color, yet if I reacted that way...
