You go to any country area of the state where there are hard working whites and blacks. They get along fine.

It's the trash of both races that no one cares for.

I can say with absolute honesty that I probably know less than 5 people under the age of 30 who are legitimately racist people.

I think when you get a less educated and less "intelligent" state, like LA,


Why is LA a less educated and intelligent state?
What is your measure? Is it because we have large Negro populations of drop outs and illiterates? A weak public school system since functional families flee the dysfunction of the cognitively deficient masses?


quote:

you get more racism from all residents since racism feeds on itself from all sides.


What does that mean? What are these sides you write about?

Probably, but only because of demographics. How exactly can someone from New England or the upper midwest be racist when they live in a 95% white state?

Once again is the black people that get most of the blame for racism in Louisiana. I can honestly say I'm a black person that grew up in Louisiana and I haven't had racism directed toward me by any other race in my entire life.

I guess it depends on your perspective....From under the hood, it probably only seems moderate.

Very true. The office of the firm I work for is very diverse. Maybe 40% latin, 40% white, 20% black. Have not heard one thing that could be construed as racist in almost two years. Not a single comment in our out of the office.

I think there is a good majority of people who aren't like burning crosses racist, but are "think white quarterbacks are better" racist.

I am willing to bet in ranks in the lower quartile in the United States in just about every measure of education.

So, I really do not see what your having trouble comprehending. My statement was pretty straightforward.

If you can't figure that out in a discussion about race, there is really no point in your participating.

re: In Your Opinion: Is Louisiana a Moderately Racist State?


That's not an answer,what is your definition of a racist? I'm just curious. And my man you can try and label me anything you like,fact is you don't know me are my dealings with people of other racists. So would you say the black guy who killed my wife's co workers wife today,who is white ,calling her racial slurs as he shot her for firing him is a racist? Does that meet your standard ?

And what role would blacks play in that ranking?

It actually isn't, what specific educational measures are you considering and who are you measuring. We also rank high in STD's, illiteracy, gun violence, illegitimate children, etc., you adjust for race and we aren't that much different than any other state that isn't "highly diverse".

quote:

If you can't figure that out in a discussion about race, there is really no point in your participating.



If you can't explain what your ambiguous and poorly worded statements mean perhaps you shouldn't participate.

No state compares to how much racism I saw while living in New Mexico.
