Uncomfortable with cultural issues class

Recommended Posts

So does screwing black hookers count??

Would I ever date an African American? I wouldn't ... if being American isn't good enough for you, if you need to separate yourself from me even down to your ridiculous title, then I have no interest in you at all.

Would I date a black woman? Well, yeah! In a second! Some of the most beautiful and sexy women I've ever met have been black....(I have a really goofy story about a black prostitute that I hired in Dubai once...and no, I didn't end up sleeping with her...(see, that's what makes it a funny story)...But it was a close thing. Remind me to tell you in private)

So, if I would have cheated with the black woman, that I purchased...(Ironic, right?) then I am ok in Crotchity's eyes, but having chosen not to do so makes me a racist? C'mon Crotchity...surely even you don't believe this 4th grade bullshit.

You are an anchor to your cause brother. Every time you present a point you make blacks appear weak, and ignorant, and pathetic. That has not been my experience in general..I'm sorry that you would be one of their champions.

As to his being banned, I am vehemently opposed to it. There is not one single person in this thread that was forced to be here. You certainly have the ability to ignore his postings..To consider banning him when he's not following folks around tormenting them is despicable in my opinion. Has he threatened anyone? Followed anyone around trying to make their lives untenable? Has he done anything else, that perhaps I'm missing, other that try and turn every topic to express his liberal opinion of the great white oppressor and the heroic but oppressed black man? I've not seen it. Even derailing this thread! He expressed his opinion, but it was the general disrespect that we've all showed for Wendy's topic that allowed this to turn into a shit storm. This has been a great learning experience. We should have stayed focused on the topic but instead chose to take the feel good Bash Crotchity path. If he should be banned for being an idiot, then the rest of us should certainly be banned for following an idiot. At least he was in the lead.

To suggest that a person should be banned because they present an opinion that you dislike is the very worst possible direction that we can go here, in my opinion.

I am here, all you have to do is say my name three times like beetlejuice. Good point beiber, you are correct, it is sad that this is such a racist country. Now before you all get mad, let me check the dictionary; racist: The notion that ones own ethnic stock is superior.

Most everyone in this room is racist, but can't admit it. Here is a little self-test that I have mentioned several times, but cant get anyone to fess up to. To see if you are racist, ask this question to yourself: If I am white, have i ever dated or made love to an african american ? If you are african american, have I ever dated or made love to a white person ? If the answer is no, you are a racist. Even if you are non-racist enough to have done the deed, you would never admit it in this forum for fear of how you will be judged ? Which may make you more racist than the person that never has.

Furthermore, every guy in here at some point in his life has done the fattest, ugliest chick (of his own race) because he was hard up and drunk, but never seems drunk enough to cross the jungle-fever line (what does that say) ? Fortunately, the women are a little more decerning, as far as number of partners, but just as racist as thier male counterparts.

And please spare me all the comments about how you are best friends with the one AA person at your workplace. You have never had dinner at his/her house, or invited them to yours (at least 98% of you have not).

So if I beded the fattest ugliest black chick out there because I was drop dead hammered drunk that doesn't make me a racist. Whew, I was really worried about that. Hey klan buddies, I'm not racist, let's go put our white sheets on now. Crotchity says I'm not racist.

Poppycock

To return to our regularly scheduled thread

Wendy, can you give me or us an example of what the 4 bullet points were for your cultural group.

I think that will give us a better frame of reference.

I'd be surprised to hear what the true lesson the instructor was trying to get you to learn was. Was it to make you feel like one of the minorites so you would have a better concept of their culture or was it to beat you down since you did say your cultural breakdown of your class doesn't have many minorities in it at all.

If it was the latter then shame on the professor.

If it was the former, then how will that professor reinforce what he/she was trying to teach you?

I suspect that it was the latter.

I don't have much respect for the liberal arts schools any more.

I can't remember the last time that I had to look back to Aristotle to win an argument yet philosophy is still taught today. Anyone remember the perfect circle or square argument in class? I sure do.

When is the last time that you used what you learned in your hsitory of western civilizaiton class to work on a code?

Weird way to do it, but I think the purpose of the exercise was to make people realize how many stereotypes are out there. I think the fact that you were offended by these stereotypes even though you aren't of that race means that this exercise was a success.

Crotchity sounds mad because the white girl wouldn't sleep with him, that is awesome!! Guilt her into it, otherwise she's racist! Funniest thread ever.

Your logic does not work here, homosexuality is a mental disease, I am not mentally ill, so I would not sleep with a homosexual.

GFYS.

So are acute personality disorders. So, I guess you are mentally ill.

I've never slept with someone my own race....crap does that mean I hate myself?

And did you imply Wendy is probably a liar merely because it was on The Office? Great logic.

I once skipped over a picture of a black chick on a porn site because she was ugly. Does that make it a hate crime?

It is not classified as such only because we live in a politically correct time, in all other periods of time it has been recognized as a treatable mental illness.

Sources? If I recall, Alexander the Great was bisexual. If he was bisexual, then how could he be so great according to your logic?

So, today was our religious and cultural awareness day in my nursing fundamentals class. Love that they're trying to increase our awareness of cultural considerations when teaching patients. That's always a good thing!

However, then they divvied us up into groups of 4 and gave each group of us a "cultural group" to represent, with only 5-6 bullet points of information per group to work from. We had to perform skits, and the rest of the class had to guess which cultural group we were based on the skit.

We're a class of 37 white people. 2 white guys, and 3 Asian women.

These skits were basically a reinforcement of stereotypes based on the bullet point information. For example of the bullet points... music and family were really important, but time was not important hardly at all to African Americans. I was incredibly uncomfortable with how they decided to "teach" this. Basically, the ignorant teaching the ignorant and repeating ignorance. I was pretty offended, actually, and I'm fairly easy going.

Thoughts on this? Especially from you instructor types? I feel that this was not an appropriate way to gain better understanding of cultures at all... if anything, it only widened the understanding gap and reinforced the paltry level of knowledge as "great" because my primary instructor and the head of the program thought the skits were "wonderful."

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

ok, to the OP, I think that it was one of two things. One they wanted to make you feel like a sterotype to open your eyes and in which case it worked or Two it was a horrilbly racist thing, Its hard to say what it was but you just got to shake it off and focus on class and not let this bother you too much even though it was very uncomfortable as I can understand. Good luck to you.

I am here, all you have to do is say my name three times like beetlejuice. Good point beiber, you are correct, it is sad that this is such a racist country. Now before you all get mad, let me check the dictionary; racist: The notion that ones own ethnic stock is superior.

You have a point that everyone is racist to some extent but what in the hell does having sex with a black women have anything to do with that :confused: . Ive dated 3 black girls, a latina and tryed my dammedest with a american indian yet i still know Im somewhat racist. And no I wont spare you stories about my minority friends, my two bests friends are mexican and cuban Ive dinner at their houses many times and more than once my two black friends were there as well (both of whom have ate dinner with me and my family on several occasions). If anyone on here has room to talk it someone like me, I dont see color I see people for who they are by their actions and words...and yet I will openly admit im racist in some settings. But this being homosexual is a mental illness is just flat wrong dude, its 2011 not 1950 time to open your mind a little bit. I do not know where you were trained at but that is no attitude to have in EMS, weather it be because of religion of just plain ignorance its wrong and unprofessional.
