tbh, I probably would discriminate against someone with green skin. But that's just the generation I was brought up in.

The stickman from the hilarious "xkcd" comics, Friday, 6 June 2008 16:39 (eleven years ago) link

"I don't care if you're black, white, purple or green!" I'm sure everyone has heard this in some shape or form in their lives (or SLives) -- but how true is it?

IRL you can't be purple or green, but in SL you can ... but so few are. As a colored avatar with a taste for wacky fashion - I've found that racism in SL is very cut and dry. I won't even bring a RL spin on it because that's a whole post in itself (ie the lack of realistic black skins beyond just being what I would consider a dark 'California' tan) and instead I'll only address what I'm familiar with.

So many folks have said that they dress their avatars in ways they wouldn't dress themselves IRL. I totally understand. Lots of folks say they choose not to be their 'RL' self because that would be boring to them, and I can kinda see that too. But seriously, does dressing your avatar like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany's really give you that aire of individuality and excitement you're seeking? Is that really how you wish you could look?

I understand that if you run a business there are certain social stigmas (for lack of a better word) that go along with that responsibility. Somehow it isn't viewed as 'acceptable' to dress yourself as a seven foot tall Moogle who farts colorful stars (if someone makes that av I gotta have one!) if you plan to have any respect when it comes to customer interaction. The fact of the matter is: in SL you are judged on how you look - down to what color your skin is.

People say "I love my friends for who they are!" but nine times out of ten their friends just look like clones of the person who said that. Its completely understandable that you get in where you fit in (haha!) and people will choose who they want to talk to based up on appearance because hey - if they look like you they probably like the same stuff you do, right?

When will things move beyond appearances? When will it not matter if you have the hottest new skin/hair and matter more on the content of potential conversation? In a social MMO platform such as Second Life - I would think that people would be more socially minded and not so .. well .. small minded.

My avatar is purple. Purple hair, dorky t shirts, knee high socks, tennis shoes, and purple skin. I like how she looks. She's interesting, and in my opinion engaging. But there's a problem: no one else does. Okay so it isn't really a problem because I'm really not into the social scene much these days - but I was once upon a time! Even now I find myself roaming about just to see if there's any good conversation to be had. There really is more to SL than shopping and looped dances.

Over the past year I've done a bit of what I'd call an experiment. I found a couple 'normal' skins that I like to accompany the purple skins that I feel are really 'me'. When I wanted to make a 'quick' friend, I'd wear a normal skin and try to make my outfit match before I visited somewhere. People came up to me to talk, even though the conversation was 'petty'. You know "Wow I love your shoes where'd you get em?" or "Oooh that's a really cool shirt, who made it?" That kind of thing. But I always get the opposite reaction when I'm purple.

I can visit the same sim in 'my' kind of dress and not a soul will talk to me. When this happens I take innitiative. I start out with a simple 'Hi' usually ... which generates little to no response. Oooh back away I'm purple! It might be *gulp* contagious!

As I said earlier, I understand the 'business' end of having to look 'normal'. I've been operating a video business in SL for almost three years now (with the help of my husband Keith/Bebop Vox) and though its always seemed to be okay for HIM to look like a cyborg - I get shoddy treatment from clients when I'm in my purple skin. But once I slap on a CS or ND skin - all is right as rain! Its funny, but at the same time very very sad.

Why is it funny? Its funny to me because I know that the individuals who judge in such a way are in no position to do so. Even if you're a multi millionaire - you have no right to judge another person. Another thing that makes it funny is that big DUH factor of it just being an avatar. But it makes me wonder .. if these people have such a small tolerance for a deviation from the 'norm' here in SL .. what are they like IRL? And suddenly that's when it isn't funny anymore. They really are just being racist because I'm not whatever color they are (which ranges from redhead pale to Tom Jones Tan).

Many people have said "Oh don't be silly! There's no racism in SL!" Then I ask "Why are there so few skin makers that cater to anyone of color (ANY COLOR besides white, tan, and Christmas Turkey Skin). Why am I treated differently when I wear a skin made by Starley or Ambyance than when I wear my beloved Wysteria skin by Munchflower if there is no racism? Since there is no racism then every skin maker should have a rainbow of skin colors - or even have an actual black skin.

I've just come to the conclusion that content creation isn't about creativity at all - its about money. Content creators don't make things that make them happy .. they make things that the droning masses will buy. Sally Skinmaker doesn't care what color you WANT to be, she cares about what color you'll buy when you have a limited choice.

What the fuck? There are thousands upon thousands of people pouring into a town in Louisiana to "protest" (read: play the race card) the punishment for what these 6 kids have done. They (collectively) beat the shit out of a kid at school and even when he was on the deck kept kicking and stomping him almost killing the kid. Now, just hearing this without race being involved, I would say that the 6 kids need to be brought up on serious charges, and as adults since they are 16 and by then you definitely know right from wrong when it comes to kicking someone's ass. Now, I find out that because these 6 kids were black and the kid they almost killed was white, thousands upon thousands of people are pouring into this little town saying that the punishment is excessive. BULLSHIT. Where's Penn and Teller when I need them? I don't care if you're black, white, purple, or green you should be tried as an adult when you do something fucking stupid like that. And GOD FORBID it would've been 6 white kids kicking the shit out of a black kid because you know that that kid would've been tried as an adult and likely sentenced to execution just to show that we're a "fair" court system.

Listen, I'm not racist, nor do I in any way advocate racism, but COME ON PEOPLE. If 6 kids get together and collectively almost murder someone, they should be tried as adults, regardless of race. They should be brought up on felony charges. They said that this stems back to 3 months ago when 3 white students hung nooses in a tree and were only expelled. Let's see... hanging nooses in a tree (which don't get me wrong, is HORRIBLE) vs. stomping a mudhole in some kid's ass (not one of the noose kids, otherwise I might understand)... these are two completely different crimes. They're saying that those 3 kids should've been charged with a hate crime instead of just being expelled from school. While I might agree with you, I HAVE to say that you can't use that flub in the system to justify letting the so-called "Jena 6" get away with attempted murder. It's not a system where you can say, "Well, those 3 white kids just got expelled for hanging nooses in a tree, so our 6 kids now get a pass to kick the shit out of someone, they should just be expelled." It doesn't work like that.

I usually try to steer clear of political issues ESPECIALLY racial political issues, because 90% of the time racial issues are because us white people like to be completely fucking ignorant all over the country. But this time, it's a country full of our African-American friends that are being ignorant. Please people... please.

If you're offended by this blog, I'm not sorry in any way shape or form. If you'd like to argue with me, or debate my points, feel free to message me. If you want to remove me from your friends list or something, go for it. This is how I feel. I have nothing against black people, in fact I hate white people a lot most of the time, and I have a right to say what I think. If you don't like it... eat a dick.

Why does this always have to turn into a racial thing?!? It's terrible that that man was killed and I agree that there should definately be an investigation.

If you didn't know equality means that everybody is equal and applies to both white people AND BLACK PEOPLE!

In a perfect world, race would not be an issue. If a white cop was involved in an incident with a person of color, whatever that color might be, the facts of the matter would be based on details, color not being one of the factors. But this isn't a perfect world. We all hold some prejudicial elements in our thought process, when skin tone is a factor. I don't care who you are, or how open minded you claim to be. >>I don't care if you are black, white, brown or mauve,<< somewhere in your psyche, perhaps right at the surface or buried deep, we all make judgements at times that are racially biased. The person of color who automatically feels they are being targeted based on race has a long historical reference to bolster their feeling. Likewise the average suburban white person who has been inundated with news of black on white crime, or reports of gang violence , will invariably recoil if approached by anyone remotely fitting that description.

I have put a lot of thought into this and done a bit of research. He claims to be Church of Christ... CLAIMS... we don't really know for sure. I don't think people are stopping to think about his roots. But either way, he is half black and to a lot of people, especially around here, that's still black. I'm not a racist, but i do tend to over think things I guess. There are groups of people who gather and talk that are racist (ie KKK). Do you honestly think that if he was elected to be the next president that there would be no assasination attempts? Kennedy was assassinated and he had A LOT to do with the civil rights. Lincoln was assasinated and he helped free the slaves. Is our country really ready for a black president? I mean Lincoln was a long time ago, but Kennedy was less than 50 years ago. My mom still remembers the day he was shot. I have a friend who is black and fully supports O'Bama. His reasoning: He's black. He has no idea what the man stands for and what he wants to accomplish in office... just that he's black... I myself would have to meet a genuine person to even vote for a democrat...

When he did it, it was kind of street theater. I mean, he could bring people together. He was black, needless to say, but he was colorblind as an artist. In other words, his theory of art, of American art-making, was: you steal from everybody. I don’t care if you’re white, black, purple, or blue, if you make a sound that I like, I’m going to steal it, and then I’m going to acknowledge where I got it from. But I’m going to do everything I can to steal, borrow, it doesn’t really matter what word he used, I’m going to listen hard, take what I need from the various places in the culture that it happens to dwell.

I would like to say that white people moving to Oakland is not the "issue," despite what new Oakland commenters on this thread are charging. Victim much? White people moving to Oakland is the symptom of the problem. It may seem like a small nuance to the newcomers reading this thread but there is actually a huge difference between an issue and its symptom. And I'm sorry, I know no one likes being singled out as symptom... Real Oaklanders know, color may matter but the color that matters the most, especially in the new Oakland is green...so please can we all now just get along and figure out where all these new people... White, Purple or otherwise are supposed to go and where we are going to put the current Oaklanders, whatever their color, that want to stay...and find a spot for another Wholefoods close to Steve's place.

Dr. Burchard of U.C. San Francisco said that a better understanding of African-American genetics could also lead to discoveries that could benefit all people. Scientists found a rare genetic mutation in an African-American woman, for example, that lowered her cholesterol levels. That discovery led to a promising drug for heart disease.

“Lo and behold, it was relevant to all populations, regardless of race,” said Dr. Burchard. “It’s relevant if you’re European, if you’re African, if you’re Asian, if you’re pink, white, blue or green.”

Likewise, this isn't to be called a tragedy. This isn't an Amtrak train being derailed. This is part of the global jihadi strategy. It's not an accident. It is war against America. And lastly, please, please, I beg my colleagues in the U.S. government, we have to stop talking about this maybe being a hate crime. It's not a hate crime. It is part of an ideological military assault on the United States of America. We have arrested 101 people linked to ISIS on U.S. soil since the caliphate was declared. This attack in part was facilitated by the policies of this administration, President Obama and Secretary Clinton, that have allowed political correctness into the threat assessment. Today I beg the White House, stop with the political correctness. We need to destroy this enemy before more innocent people, gay, straight, black, white, brown, yellow are murdered on U.S. soil.

That's a particularly egregious example, because no way could that show be the way it is if it was written by someone who's not a black American.

We visit Dolezal's studio. She is, in all honesty, a very talented painter. The majority of her paintings feature black people. Other than the paintings of her children, most of the black people depicted appear to be dressed as slaves or tribespeople. Breaking this pattern was a series of portraits hanging on the wall of Dolezal herself. They were done Warhol style, each painting duplicated in a different color. Dolezal explains them to me: "You know, people are always saying to me, 'Rachel, I don't care if you are red, green, blue, or purple,' so I decided to paint myself as red, green, blue, or purple."

Dolezal chuckles as she says this, as if it is the most clever and original idea anybody has ever had. I don't know how many times a white person has told me that they don't care if I'm "red, green, blue, or purple" when they are trying to explain to me just how "not racist" they are—I've lost count. I do know that I've rolled my eyes every time. As my brother Ahamefule said to me once, "They may not care if I'm red or green or blue or purple—but they sure as hell care that I'm black."

That they're in order of the rainbow elevates it from the rest of the comments in this thread.

When a D-II coach says he'll recruit any linebacker - black, white or purple - I don't think he's also got gay rights on his mind.

One of the beneficiaries of Robinson’s groundbreaking efforts in baseball was professional basketball. The National Basketball Association was only in its second year when Robinson debuted and a culture of segregation had not yet hardened. But there were still no African-American players in the league when the owners convened for a player draft on April 25, 1950. In the second round, with the 14th pick of the draft, Boston Celtics owner Walter Brown picked Chuck Cooper who had earned All-American honors at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. Startled, a fellow owner blurted out, “Walter, don’t you know he’s a colored boy?” Brown responded, “I don’t care if he’s striped, plaid or polka dot."

honestly i dont care if youre white, brown or black. just as long as youre not some unnatural color like purple or green. if that were the case it would be very easy to convince me we need a caste system where those people are forced to live in the sewer
