are you afraid of black people?

I wasn't sure if I should even respond to this topic, as it could be considered borderline racist. Why in God's name would you be afraid of black people? Of course they're not all bad. One can say the exact same thing for every race, white, black, asian, indian, native indian, etc. What makes people bad isn't their skin colour! It has to do with the environment, life experience, and yes even genetics of the person involved. Please stop playing on this awful stereotype.

No kidding. Just becuase I have a bad experience with a Jewish man doesn't mean I'm going to become Anti-Semetic. If someone who's hispanic steals my car I'm not going to say I hate Latinos. Maybe you did have a bad experience, but it's no reason to be scared of all black people.

i especially take great offense to the comment that she is especially afraid of black men, being that i am a mother of a little boy (i'm black), and the men that i have closest to me are just as precious to me. let me tell you about my best friend (who's black), he will be graduating from an ivy league college of business, and maintains a 3.9 average (he holds 2 degrees, and is now pursuing his graduate degree). he owns a condominium in washington dc, and owns a house in virginia. he earns over $250K a year, and has two brand new cars (bmw, and acura). he has NEVER been arrested, and is an upright, productive citizen. my father, has always provided for his family (he was a computer engineer, but switched careers to be a teacher). he has never commited a crime, and his greates love is his family, the Lord, golfing, fishing. neither of these men are what she

Actually dreadstar... no they are not. I got the information from the FBI website and they ARE based on the actual # of arrests in the US. The site that your link goes to is based on the Oklahoma correctional system. So how about you check YOUR facts and actually do some research, and THEN accuse me of lying (because I have NO REASON WHATSOEVER to make up statistics).

Hi, I do know why should one be afraid of colour, this tends to be bid racist. Any being black,brown,yellow or white the colour of humans goes on it the God who created this. As long as we under the rook of sky we tend to be children of God. Still I appreciate the open heart discussion of you. There are rude, cruel and other negative peoples even though they are not blacks. Judging people by colour is really unacceptable.

No, at all. There are no "categories" of people who scare me. Black people, Muslims, Gipsies, immigrants.... I fear no one, it could happen that one black person of one gipsy of one muslim does bad things and I could get scared, but it's the person who scares me, not his/her culture or religion. And don't let us forget italians, I often met some bad Italians who really scared me a lot....
