    According to a survey.

    Another way to look at it is most honest countries.

    I find it funny that people who cry about racism in Western countries are from most racist countries in the world... Freaking hypocrites.

    Just out of curiosity, what's your problem with criticizing racism? So, let me see if I understand. If I, not being a racist, live somewhere where there are lots of racists, I can't speak out against racism anywhere?

    Also, I'm curious, who do you have in mind when you mention all of the people in the above named countries who are decrying racism in the US? Where they are speaking out, what's your evidence that they themselves are racist? Guilt by association?

    Finally, I like to think that we, and the world at large, holds the US to a slight higher set of standards where it comes to things like this than say, Albania, Saudi Arabia, or Iran. Do you think we should aspire to the same standards as these countries?

    I'm from Jordan! How exciting. I don't think we've ever won anything before.

    Try getting a job if you are white in store/business run by Indian - I do not have official stats but few people I know who applied where quickly dismissed in favor of indians. They will cry about how they are mistreated here and that white people are racists ( had numerous discussions with indians here and 90% of them cry racism against them), yet they are the worst by tolerating others. Again, I do not have stats, just my personal opinion and experience.

    Yeah Albania is real racist, with them being the only country protecting Jews during the Second World War.

    Do you realize how non-compelling your arguments are?



    Evidently not.

    The Indians you talk to here, did they participate in the racism in India? Are they racist here in their own attitudes and treatment than others? If so, then yes they are hypocrites.

    They are not, however, hypocrites because racism may exist (and may systematically exist) in India, but they themselves are not racist.

    You just love generalizing to billions from small, biased sample sets don't you?

    I gave the article a quick read, and I think it's kind of silly. For one, Arabs don't even really have the concept of race. How did they ask that in Arabic? What word did they use? Regardless, Jordan borders Israel, and I'm 100% sure all those who responded to the survey were thinking of Israel when they responded.

    That said, of course Westerners are less racist in general. Western culture, being superior to most other cultures in every way, is typically very aware of its shortcomings, and its people give real effort to remedy those problems. In Jordan, the word for a black person is "slave". People say that casually, without anyone raising any objections. Hell, when I was a kid, I used to buy a chocolate product named "head of the slave". It had a caricature of an smiling African on the wrapper. People over there had no awareness of the concept until the advent of the internet. And since Jordan's ethnic minorities are all Arab or white (Russian), they see all others as the outsider.

    I agree with your post completely, but I definitely point this sentence of yours out. I think it's much easier to have a mutual understanding as respect for other cultures when you are in constant contact with them, as seen in some western nations. The homogeneity of their population makes it difficult for them to be able to attack racist notions. Pretty simple, in my opinion.

    Oh yeah? Because Albania was the only European country who had an INCREASE of Jewish population after the war.


    Nose is being held high because we deserve it. Quit being butthurt.

    35% of albania is agnostic. In addition from 1967 to 1991 they were the first and only atheistic state in the world.

    Albania is still recovering from human devaluing atheistic regimes.

    Of course, that's what it's all about. Young people are more accepting of gays because they're familiar with them. If you grow up with something, it becomes normal. Arab countries are very culturally homogeneous, so they reject anything they find unfamiliar. And the homogeneity makes very many things unfamiliar. That's one reason multiculturalism will be humanity's saving grace (counter to what AKMVP thinks). It is the only way to tear down nonobjective prejudices, and expose people to their own shortcomings.

    GVC, I saw your post. Don't really know how my point is irrelevant, but I'll show you what I was talking about anyways.


    https://www1.yadvashem.org/yv/en/exhi...troduction.asp

    This is simply the introduction, the link has several testimonies from personal recollections of Albanian families that protected various Jewish people during the Holocaust- would definitely recommend that you all check them out. I just came across it today, and I was quite pleasantly surprised. My parents and brother were all born in Kosovo, so we are all Albanian-Canadian. Makes me both proud of my faith, and proud of my ancestry

    Figure I would share it with y'all.


    This is from an old thread of mine. https://jazzfanz.com/showthread.php?9...ghlight=Muslim

    100% correct, in my opinion. Would rep, but I did so already recently.

    It's funny cuz AKMVP probably thinks I have it out for atheists-- when you are in fact a poster I consider to be one of the most intelligent on this board-- and a poster I've never had any troubles getting along with.

    I deleted my post because it was (more or less) irrelevant. But, since you've responded, it's probably worth pointing out that "Jewish" isn't a race. Further, just because a culture is widely accepting of another culture, doesn't mean that that culture is more accepting/less prejudiced against those of other races. Good on Albania though; at least one of my ancestors wasn't so lucky in Austria.
