People using the internet to justify their prejudices

Does anyone else get irritated with seeing people on message boards, or any online forum, trying to drum up sympathy or support for their own prejudices? Almost every time, someone will say "I'm not racist, but --" or "I'm not homophobic, but --" and then follow up with nothing but a racist or homophobic question. It's awfully sad to see this so often, and I have to admit I have a hard time not jumping into the fray to say my piece about how this is still racism, etc.

I think it's fine not agreeing with them but you really get it out ion the open and can really see how ignorant people are. I say keep it in the open that way people can be educated as to the ignorant people out there. Don't hide come out in the light so we can fight the problem.

you are so correct. That just shows there are still alot of small minded people in this world. I was raised that a person is a person we all have the same body ports. If you dont want to date out of your race then don't. Its as plain as that. Personaly I do not date out of my race but no one should ever judge others for it because you like what you like and we can not help who we fall in love with. Always treat others how you want to be treated.
