I'm black myself, but whenever I see/even hear of a black person, I just cringe.
I don't find them attractive at all, compared to other ethnicities. Everything about them just doesn't work for me, including the nose, the lips, the whole 'chicken and watermelon' stereotype. It makes me cringe; I've learned to associate negative attributes to black people e.g. being loud, disobedient, always rude and in your face.

I told a friend this and he said I was being racist, which I don't believe I am but now I'm not so sure so I'm asking you.

If you're making assumptions about people (and even avoiding them) based on the colour of their skin, then yes, you're kind of being racist.

You're an idiot, I'm ashamed you're black

Yes, you are discriminating against blacks - racist.

I saw that -didn't they cover him in white powder to make him white for the day?
And he said something along the lines of "I feel so free" which made me sad.

OP, I've seen many, many beautiful black people. You shouldn't be hating on your own race. Also, the chicken and watermelon stereotype is just that - a stereotype, not meant to be taken seriously as it's in jest.

I remmber that video. It was sad to see.

OP, I don't know if you're racist, but you're self hating. It's not a good thing.

But yes it is perfectly possible to be racist to your own race. For instance, if you've seen Django unchained, there's this old black man (not Django) living in the house with the white people, he's treated like he's white and he's racist to the black servants as if he isn't black himself.
This is obviously a film but the same thing can and does happen in real life.

No darling, I don't think you can be racist, since you're black yourself.

It's worth saying that just because you don't find a particular group of people physically unattractive for whatever reason doesn't mean you're racist. But the fact that you cringe and have associated all these negative attributes to them is racism as you're being prejudice to people based on the colour of their skin.

Well he could always do what MJ did and the richer indians like to do and start skin bleaching :rolleyes: not entirely sure why someone would want to change their colour though, i mean on the flipside theres plenty of white scum out there i dont see many people hating an entire race because of it:L
