That is your opinion. I think everyone is a bit racist and it is all good.

There is still that label attached to mixed raced people, the media and general public refer to Obama as the first black president. I'm mixed raced (half Indonesian, half British) and people still refer to me as Asian when I'm probably more ingrained in British culture than Asian and spent the majority of my adult life here.

So how about you look at my answer and use your brain to figure out it was an answer to a question not a means of justification.
When I said "use your brain" I wasn't talking about you, it was directed at the people who still do this. We all know the history of the one drop rule and all that but it's freaking 2012.

Can't people discuss things rationally? Vitali made an incendiary comment which could be construed as racially motivated because similar comments have been made by racists for literally centuries. Because of that precedence, it's difficult to determine Vitali's intention behind the comment.

I see nothing racist in it.

On the flip side is it only because haye is black that is seems racist to you?
I agree.. no racism involved here.. everyone has the right to express himself..

It's clear to me that he meant it as a way to describe Haye's manors and how he handles himself. I don't think he meant it in a way that he was being racist, it was just a poor choice of words imo.

I have to vote "NOT SURE" because I don't know what is in the man's mind.

I would guess he meant Haye is uncivilized, but whether he meant it racially also is hard to say.

I tend to distrust people who pretend they don't have one racist bone in their bodies or have never had a racist thought.

We've all had racist thoughts and probably made a racist remark at one time or another.

To me, an actual *racist* is someone obsessed by race and who actively dislikes and discriminates against people based on their race.
