My experience is that a person’s racist tendencies are directly proportional to their exposure to diverse cultures. While living in Korea for two years, I found the people to have very little exposure to other cultures and, therefore, to base their opinions of individuals of other races on generalizations they might have seen in media. I also noticed differences in myself after gaining the cultural exposure there. While I had previously accepted the limitations of generalizations conceptually, only after getting to know hundreds of Koreans personally was I able to see that they are just as different as everyone I knew back home.
Aren’t we missing some other races? Like Native American?
Uh…there’s only one ethnic group I know of that has many members who wish to kill all Jews…that’s a little bit more racist than only hanging out with people who look like you.
Im not sure if one is more racist then the other. It just seems like some races get away with more. For example, blacks and latino races have there own music awards and have a month decicated to them. Does that make them more racist? Or does that make us because we dislike the fact that we don’t have that? Just a thought.
You are all demonstrating your racism with the poll results. I bet hardly any of the people who voted are black. I’m guessing that actually most people voting are white and choosing to vote for black people as the most racist. That’s pretty stereotypical and racist just in itself. White people need to do some serious looking inward. Remember black people were slaves and black people had to fight hard during the civil rights movement for equal rights. They’re still fighting now! I’m appalled, but not suprised to see that white America thinks that African-Americans are the most racist.
Some of us haven’t been afforded enough experiences to even make an informed decision.
It’s crazy that most people pick blacks as the most racist ethnic group of all when actually they are the most repressed. Find me a repressed person and I’ll show you an angry person. the "discrimination" majority of blacks have isn’t racism but something entirely different. there’s a term for it but i can’t remember.
When you’ve been repressed by a groups/groups of people and all other races see you as the least of all races and treat you as so, you tend to expect that and have a defense mechanism. You tend to NOT want to be around those people or associate yourself with them. you tend to backlash at them more NOT because of necc. who they are but what they have done.
Find me a black person who thinks and treats other races as racially inferior to themselves and I’ll show you a black racist. Find me one who’s angered w/ people you have historically AND currently mistreated and belittled them and I’ll show you an angry black person.
on that note, with my wide range of experience of all ethnic groups, i find asians to the racist of them all. When i say asians i mean East Asians and Indians. (trust me on this. some of them, if they are close to you, would sadly agree).
Since Asia consist of sub-continents there are several main races in Asia. Each differing not only in culture and language but also in skin colour, body types, hair types and so on.
In Asian countries that have more than one Asian ethnic group, racism is rife.
You poll can’t be too accurate if you lump all Asians into one group. What about the Indian vs. the Chinese. Do all Asians look alike to you? Surely not!
The racism against white people in these comments pretty much reaffirms what most of us already knew. White people are not the problem.
Dude…50% of Omni-Nerds (38 total) think that "black" is an ethnic group…there are 38 Omni-Nerd idiots out there…
This is by war the WORST poll that has been on Omni-Nerd, its so objective, and subjective that I don’t even know where to begin.
I have lost respect for Omni-Nerd based on the authorization of this submission.
Race and Ethnicity are two completely different things, assuming you people "meant" , "Races that display the most racist tendencies?" What qualifies you to say that Blacks are more racist? Racist towards whom?? YOU? I’m assuming that 99.9999% of you are white…right? Which probably means that these "black people" must be racist towards YOU, right? Or do you feel they’re racist towards…say…Native Americans? What qualification, or quantification do you have for anything contained in this survey…this in fact, has been a complete WASTE of cyberspace and a denigration of all that Omni-Nerd stands for.
blacks………..simply the most racist ethnicity in the world.
Easy answer… Asians. They’re both hypocritical because they degrade other races in private, and also are very quick to judge other races/ethnicities in a negative light. They pretend to be fearful of black men and women, when in reality, they’re not afraid. They’re oppressive. They need to be called out on it, but no one does. Because everyone thinks they’re the “model minority”. Personally, as a black man, I don’t even eat in Asian restaurants anymore. Why should I pay them, when they wouldn’t step foot in a black restaurant? And a lot of people (especially wide-eyed white liberals) take Chinese or Japanese in school. Did I? Absolutely not. I signed up for Swahili instead, and I can tell you in the history and future of the program, its probably an accurate guess that no Asian will ever take it. I don’t support their community, as long as they continue to harbor prejudices against blacks. If that means always, then I will always continue to be loyal to the Black community. And when I adopt a child, it definitely won’t be from China. What about the poor children here who are subjected to their parents carelessness. Where is there opportunity for them? Never. So, that’s my explanation, and I’m supporting it wholeheartedly.
White people (the largest population) put up a post about racism and then vote for black folks and they act surprised?! What a joke!
White people are too self-righteous to be racist. They prefer to do it behind your back. Nepotism… Learn the word and understand it. Nepotism keeps white, retarded people in power. That’s why this country has gone to shits. All these years, we’ve had stupid, privileged white folks in power.
White privilege is " when you can attend four different colleges in six years like Sarah Palin did (one of which you basically failed out of, then returned to after making up some coursework at a community college), and no one questions your intelligence or commitment to achievement, whereas a person of color who did this would be viewed as unfit for college, and probably someone who only got in in the first place because of affirmative action" (Wise). Remember, Obama attended Harvard University, yet he was viewed as “inexperienced” compared to the likes of Palin.
Thankfully, globalization is finally putting an end to whitey’s reign of stupidity. Yep, this is the beginning of the end for AmeriKKKa. Economists predict by 2050, China will be the greatest country in the world. Thank God I have Chinese friends. I doubt many of you do.
PEOPLE COME ON DIS QUIZ OR WHATEVA IT IS IS MAKIN US RACIAL TOWARDS EACH OTHER SOME THING CUD NEVER BE FORGOTTEN BUT WE HAVE TO MOVE ON FROM THE PAST SAY YES TO ANTI RACISM
The reason blacks were chosen is because mostly white people voted. Most white people aren’t going to choose white people as the most racist, so they chose the group who they feel has the most reason to hate them. Obviously nobody could ever be as racist as white people. It’s not even close. When it comes to racism, whites are like the New York Yankees and all the other races are like a bunch of little league teams. There isn’t even any competition.
this is only based on a few people so is it really that relevant?
If results of a poll still draws criticism 4 years after it’s posted, I have to say…..screw it, I’m still laughing. NICE!
I have traveled quite a bit and have met so many wonderful black people, but when visiting the USA, I met some of the most racist and inconsiderate black people in the world. Self-centered and ready to blame other races for their troubles at the drop of a hat instead of owning up to their problems and moving forward. Wow! much sympathy America. May God be with you.
Why do most black people automatically say that the reason for their problems is because of discrimination against them? Instead of looking at the facts. Which ethnic group has the highest percent of single parents raising children, which ethnic group makes up the prison population, which ethnic group has the highest number of high school dropout? What ethnic groups make up most of the gangs? Instead of blaming others because your ancestor were discriminated against and treated unfairly start living in the present and take responsibility for your own actions. Most things that are in place to help out the people who were discriminated against in the past are discrimination now. Look at the NAACP they only fight for the black cause not all injustice. What about the United Negro College Fund. Would it be acceptable to have a United Caucasian College Fund? The affirmative action is discrimination it says that we will discriminate to make up for past discrimination, but the problem is no us citizen that is alive now was a slave so it should be NO ONE SHOULD BE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN. PEROID

You have chosen the wrong site to spread this filth. Nerds tend to be well educated and therefore not racist. They will not let your shit soil their site without wiping it off.
You are fond of rash generalizations, so I will give you a few of mine, which are just as valid (or invalid) as yours. Most blacks don’t say that. The majority, who succeed in life, don’t usually make that claim unless they have personally suffered discrimination. Many have, so some do. That is good because we need to address those problems. However, you are making a generalization that is no less invalid because it is popular in the South.
It seems to me that real discrimination could result in most of the bad behaviour that you attribute to simply being black. Things would not have been allowed to deteriorate so much if the majority of the poor in the USA were white. More generalizations: blacks are much more talented at sports and music than white Americans.
Of course there is a reaction now to the enormous impact of slavery and discrimination, and that certainly does amount to positive discrimination. Our ancestors brought that on and we have benefited from it. So we have earned a little negative impact on our lives now.
BTW, our prisons are full of slaves. There are more slaves in the USA now than there were just before the Civil War.
About the NAACP etc. That is all trivially true – a fair starting point for a rational discussion. We expect a more informed analysis than you have given as to why it is true and whether this very mild positive discrimination will improve the USA in the long run. I think it will.
Why is the prison full of slaves? Are they in prison for no fault of their own just because the color of their skin or are they in prison for some action of themselves. Is it because they are on probation and yes they do have weapons and drugs in the vehicle but they are being arrested because they are black. Being poor are not an excuse for crying discrimination. Why do you say that being black means that you are going to be poor. I started out poor with no job, no house, no money, but I joined the military which gave me the opportunity to save some money and go to college and better myself, Because of that I am able to provide for myself. Yes I had to move to another state and didn’t have anyone to help out but I did it and most poor people can do it themselves too. Yes I had to work 2 jobs one at McDonald’s and the other pumping gas and it was embarrassing but it was something I had to do to survive. Why can’t other people do it too instead of crying discrimination and expectation someone to help them out? What must we do to make sure people stay in school and graduate? Quitting school and getting pregnant when not married is the biggest way to being poor, but both are preventable but it happens the people say help me it. It’s not my fault; again if you look at the figures the greatest number of unwed births and school dropout are black. What about the crime and murder rate in Chicago. Why is it only happening in the black community? People say that if they lived in the white community then things will be better but I believe it’s not where you live but the people who live in a community. I also would like to know how long using affirmative action before everything is equal or is it something that must happen forever. At some point we must say that the tables have been turned enough and now there will be no discrimination either way.
Why they are in prison is largely irrelevant to the fact that they are slaves. They are being forced to work for profitable corporates for no pay, or only token pay, with no occupational health and safety rights. How they got there becomes relevent only if they would otherwise not be there. This could be true if parole is being denied to good workers, or non parole times are being lengthened, or longer sentences being set, in order to strengthen the supply of this free labor: there is some evidence that this may be happening.
You ask some good questions about why many people cannot drag themselves out of poverty by working hard in the way we do. I don’t know the answers but I do not assume that it is because they are worthless people who would be more useful as prison slaves.
If we start from the position that all children are innocent and deserving of a decent life; and that they have enormous potential to contribute to the prosperity of this country, then try to find out why that potential is not being captured, then we might be able to home in on the real problems and learn to overxome them.
Generalizing about the worthlessness of black people is never going to do it. it sounds bigoted and racist: because it is.
I know loads of racists of different ethnicities. (Online and Reality)Most of them being black sorry it’s true. and then white people will dislike black people for this. black people hold alot of repression, yes, but they have no right to, it is the 21st century now. they are resenting for nothing. however i’ve heard racial remarks from white people too, they behave like it is acceptable. but sometimes racism has been blown out of preportion. most of these white people are the less known european countries. and be honest well known countries will report more racism because it is more noticeable as racism is a fixing problem with them. middle easterners are discreetly racial. and asians are the opposite, they aren’t actually aware of racism as much as the western world. i know this from first hand and i am mixed. but i think racism happens because of reluctance to accepting eachother. i mean i can’t hate because im mixed.
so i see no point in differentiating eachother.
