Do you think it is as bad for a white person to hate Germans as to hate black people?

But black people are so much cooler than Germans.

Yes, it is.

I Love Germans!!!

"I think a lot of people will say racism is worse..."

I'd include prejudice against a nation under the banner of racism (ie, racism isn't just about skin colour). In answer to the question, I'd be inclined to equate the two forms of prejudice in terms of "badness," though I imagine it could be argued that national traits are more stable than "racial" traits (in the sense used in this question) such that "racial" prejudice is worse (as it's less likely to be attributable to actual traits).

But logically, that'd mean Germans are hotter than blacks?

What about black Germans?

They must be the coolest people on the planet.

Racism is racism. Prejudice is prejudice. It's just as bad.
9 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 9/25/08 - 2:21:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
I agree with the poster of this question though. I hate it when people claim that they're not racist because the French (for example) aren't a race.
9 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 9/25/08 - 2:34:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well, technically, this racism word shouldn't even exist. When it's towards a certain color of skin it should be more something like 'ethnist'. And when it's directed at people from a certain country or culture, I guess it's a form of xenophobia in a sense, and we could call it 'culturist' if the term wasn't already used for them big muscle dudes...
9 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 9/25/08 - 2:36:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
Of course it's just as bad. Definitely.
9 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 9/25/08 - 4:44:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
yeah
9 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 9/25/08 - 4:52:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
But Germans are white....
and so....
this question could be asking about germans hating germans.
9 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 9/25/08 - 5:08:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
Racism isn't always about colour, it can be about ethnicity and nationality as well. It's just as bad.
9 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 9/25/08 - 5:09:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
That's stupid. There's absoloutely no reason to hate any group of people for something their grandparents did.
9 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 9/25/08 - 5:11:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't agree that racism can include hatred of a nationality. Part of the motivation of racism is a sometimes unspoken belief that the other race is not the same or not as human as you are. That doesn't really exist in prejudice against nationalities.
9 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 9/25/08 - 5:15:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
Ok it definatley is just as bad to hate germans as it is black people. Like everybody else said, racism is racism.
9 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 9/25/08 - 5:17:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
And furthermore, German people deserve it because they're all Nazis. All of them.

No, it's just about race.


That doesn't mean there aren't other prejudices, though.
