Minorities in the US are hyper sensitive in recent years to everything. In reality they're often more racist than anyone, but project it on to everyone else.

Well that's some horseshit.

Well based on my life experience, I more than careful. Living in the UK what I've noticed in London where lived most my life it's not  that bad. It's pretty diverse and everyone respects each others cultures. But you still get the ignorant ones but they are outweighed and there are certain areas that I don't go to because they are known for racism. Now living outside of London its been an absolute joke. I'm mixed white black Portuguese with African decent and work in a phone shop the type of racism I have and do experience is ridiculous. Police is a different matter, I've stop and search since I was 12 years old and wearing school uniform. I have been treated like a criminal because according to the police, I look like one. The last time I was stopped to searched and asking on what grounds they are searching me they said I was black, had long hair and was wearing a track suit, so I can't go for a run without being looked at differently. So I don't think you should comment on things you don't have experiences on when I get targeted on a daily basis just for how I look, language I speak, where I'm from and even down to my name. I pay my taxes when I work full time, while studying at university. I've grown up here and I still get treated like a second class citizen. What's funny is to get a British passport I need to do a citizen test even though I've grown up in the education system here but when I was doing well in athletics, my coach asked if I had one I said no and he goes doesn't matter if you get the chance they will give you one. 

Well this is kinda of what I was getting at. This sort of stuff happens often to blacks because of racism plus the thug culture and bad image that they have built over the years. Yet I feel like its gotten to the point where they are seen "ghosts" where there aren't any. The main reason I brought this topic up was from watching a youtube video where this very nice looking black youth commented how he was treated like a n**** that morning by a white couple walking down the street. How the woman held her purse closer and the guy starting walking behind her when they passed him. I couldnt help but think back to my own experiences and think that it is completely normal for a guy to walk behind his lady, specially if she has a really nice butt, I do it all the time. I want to trust the guy and believe his racist experience but another part of me is thinking maybe this guy is making racism out of everything.

My point is that it seems racism has consumed some minorities to the point where they link it with every part of their life. And I feel like a lot of those instances it is all up in their heads.

On a side note I have had cops pull out guns on me for putting my hands in my pocket to turn off my Ipod, not something you want to experience I will say. I was around 15 years old when it happened.

Everybody is racist. You have no choice. One of us. One of us. One of us. One of us. One of us. One of us. One of us. One of us. One of us. One of us.

When I worked at Gamestop some years ago, two black men asked to see a copy of Batman Begins. I looked through the drawer where we keep it, grabbed and gave them what I thought was Batman...turned out it was a game called Black. That was a bit awkward. Of all the games I could have wrongly grabbed...

My bad, I did generalize too broadly. I do think there's a level of hyper sensitivity among minorities today (mainly due to progressive media) but it doesn't make sense to conflate that with general racism.

It's not just minorities, people are hyper sensitive these days full stop.

Have any of you ever been the "victim" of projected racism? I used to work part-time at a Home Depot when I was younger and you wouldnt believe how many times I met a black person who would think I was being racist.

I remember one time I was looking for a specific bolt for an online order. I happen to have bad eyesight so I usually get close to the shelves trying to find stuff. This black guy just so happened to be standing right in front of the bolt  area and I innocently get close and stand next to him to look. Well it seems I was invading his personal space or something because after a minute or 2 the guy starts laughing and talking to himself and then he start telling me how he knows what I am doing and that he doesnt have to deal with this etc... Long story short the guy thought I was some sort of store police and was keeping tabs on him. Even after I left he still believed that I was undercover or something.

Another time I am looking for merchandise all over the store and it just happens that I am going the same way as this black lady that was on her phone. Well after a bit she turns around and starts laughing and saying to the person on her cellphone that I am following her and that I think she is going to steal something or whatnot, and I just look at her and laugh as well and keep walking because I really didnt know what to say, she sounded so sure of herself. 

Anyways this stuff happened to me all the time. Its crazy to me how black people think they are being monitored or watched all the time. I wonder if its because it happens to them all the time and how many of those times is it actually true.

 

Sounds like the person in home depot was up to something and his own conscience was convicting him.

You just generalized 90-100m people.

OP- I have not been a victim of projected racism.

 

'' Yep, and its the truth. You wanna see true racism? Come to China!

That's true. But it generally seems to resolve around sensitivity on behalf of minorities. Even our extreme political correctness as it were, mostly relates to the words and behaviors that we can and cant exhibit towards minorities.
