    She is white, right.

    Personally I think everyone is racist to a degree. It's just a matter of how honest we are with ourselves and that's very few and close to zero.

    I don't think I care. Everyone is to some degree, it's inherent and anyone who says they aren't even just the smallest fraction is dishonest.

    I think people are biased towards the things that things they have in common with others. I don't think being racist is the same thing. I'm also not sure if that is to what you are referring.

    ok, so I think racism is inherent. I think it's pre-programmed into our heads to fear and to distrust those who aren't like you. And unfortunately the most powerful sense we have is sight. We learn so much from a young age with our eyes. I think for the most part over time it's something we can shake, but not entirely.

    I also believe that's why it's very important to integrate children with children of different races, because the earlier we show kids that race isn't important, the quicker they will shed those inherent biases.

    Does that make any sense or is it just a bunch of jibberish?

    racism is one of those words that doesn't have a clear definition. It means different things to different people. I haven't met a race that I did not like so I would say that I am not racist. But I do chuckle at stereotype jokes so someone would say that I was racist. There are the good and bad in all races. You can dislike the bad but as long as you enjoy the good I would say that you are doing ok.

    Oprah is a bad.

    how is she racist? I cant stand her, but white people adore her.
    again, how is she racist?
    you know until recently, Oprah wouldnt have rappers on her show because they used the n word.

    I don't think she is racist but I do think she loves the color green the most.
