    Question How racist are you ? (test yourself)

    Take this quick test and vote at the poll. It appeared that I am balanced.

    I got 57% and "you are generally NOT race-minded." I thought the questions were a bit too general, though. I also felt that I don't need a test to tell me what I think of other races. Still, it was an interesting experiment.

    [Edit] The poll choices are a bit misleading. For instance, my score was "Tolerant: You scored 34!" but my "racistpoints" score was 57%, and that was the one that I chose when voting. Which did you mean?

    I got 22%:TOLERANT
    "You are generally NOT race-minded, there may be a thing or two that you see as a race issue, but mostly, you are a very tolerant person!"

    but this test is aimed at US citizen (Mexican immigrants or European immigrants?)
    and what is "NAACP"?

    Those were the questions that I had a problem with. I'm sure that's where they got me too.

    Congratulations, you are a very tolerant and muticultered person! No one could ever accuse you of being a racist!

    Very silly test in my own opinion. ( I scored a 13 with 10% racist points)

    boo-yah! I'm a 100% pure racistian racist!...

    test? what test?.. oh... there was a test?

    ok, but seriously.. Like what has been said earlier; I don't need some half-assed test to tell me if I'm racist or not. I know perfectly well where my lines are drawn.

    Unhappy troubling test...

    "Anti-racist: You scored 18! :Congratulations, you are a very tolerant and muticultered person! No one could ever accuse you of being a racist! : higher than 42% on racistpoints."
    What's the difference between tolerant & anti-racist ? The test didn't give any objective frame of reference, and I can hardly take it seriously. Especially the questions about Affirmative Action, NAACP/NAACW, and Jewish talentedness, and skin color-math ability correlation. Such obvious questions not only jeopodize the reliability, but can also perpetuate genuine racism by offering certain emergency exits of self deception. Highly damaging test, so please don't trust what it says !

    H: True I am not you, and I cannot know. Likewise, I know you're not, therefore I know you don't.
    Z: You asked me how I knew implying you knew I knew. In fact I saw some fish, strolling down by the Hao River, all jolly and gay.

    I got 67% percent, but then I realised I had done the slut test instead of the racism test.

    Hardly a valid social experiment, but nonetheless, I got 18%.
    The biggest problem with being better than everyone else is that people tend to assume that you're pretentious.

    Hey, Cacawate ! Your avatar and your saying matches perfectly !
    Yours is the bestest anit-racist statement on this thread !
    Hahahaha...

    General Note: I think the test was written by a person who has read the questions commonly asked in a test of Anti-Semitism. I'd say a full-blooded racist can pass as a tolerant to anti-racist by the standards of this test.

    Well, Mal darling I personally don't consider myself an African American I wouldn't think it was an insult. It's more of a politically correct term than the "N" word. If you know what I mean.

    I actually managed a ...1% racist ...(really!) but they still said that I looked at one or two things in a racial sense !

    .... Of course had the test been biased Anglo/Scots/Irish/Welsh ..... I could have scored differently !

    Then a few crosses might have been burning on a few lawns !

    I guess I'm 9% racist. I think because I think things like affirmative action are racist because it's treating people of different races differently. If we're all equal, we should be treated the same way right?

    I totally agree with you on the vicissitudes of Affirmative Action, and I might add a point from the viewpoint of African Americans. I have seen plenty of bright, hard working AA students fail due to lack of follow-up support; but also due to the hypocricy that admission to a prestigious school/job makes up for the centuries of exploitation-discrimination against "colored" people for example.

    The great hypocricy works like this: give them accesss, perhaps beyond their means, and let them fail miserably for lack of 1) aptitude 2) social network 3) adequate, continuing support. Either revamp te whole AA plan, or scrap it and admit the US is racist from deep down below. I won't even go into how some whites abused the system by declaring their heritage as colored when in all practicality they were white.

    The sins (forgive my strong wording; cannot find a better word, and, as the US is in the majority Christian) of white supremacy of the past is not going to leave unless GENUINE AFFIRMATIVE ACTION is taken, not the lying Affirmative Action that only looks good on paper. Active rehabilitation of the descenents of the colored people of the unindentured servitude of US's past is not an option, but one requirement without which the future of US is at stake in my 3rd party opinion. I also believe it needs to be done with respect and dignity, not without. I apologise for deviating from your point, Brooker, but please take it as supplmenting yours. It's just that I've been thinking about this for a long time, and there seems to be no way out.

    Tolerant

    You scored 23!

    You are generally NOT race-minded, there may be a thing or two that you see as a race issue, but mostly, you are a very tolerant person!

    My test tracked 1 variable How you compared to other people your age and gender:

    You scored higher than 99% on racistpoints
    Awsome.

    Its quite simple that apart from the very specific yet insugnificant hollow genetic coding for skin colour, were all the same bag of deoxyribonucleaic acid.

    DNA for short.

    I find most "Racial" differences are infact quite comfortably actually under "Cultural" differences, a white man born into a asian country will have more in common with that country then the west.

    Same for Blacks, I find it hard to emagine they would entirely fit in in the heart of Africa.


    Though its interesting to note people tend to be statistically drawn to their own skin colour, but, then again, this is because society has been telling them for hundreds of years they are different and so they feel drawn and accepted into that racial group, but, as with the white teenagers across the world getting "Gansta!" along with the black originators, they relate to each other more inside this "ghetto rap and hip hop" type of subculture more then whites or blacks outside it.


    Humans just have a tendency, maybe even a need, to have an "us" and a "them".
