Racism or Bigotry:
Which do you prefer?

After my post yesterday — to which I received mostly agreements
that I originally expected to be indignant flaming, I realized that
along with myself, there are a lot of openly racist people out there.

However, there were a couple people who gave me heated responses (one
even called me the Hitler of Xanga! — please don’t call me that, I
prefer Mussolini, thanks… I’m not quite as badass as Hitler)
Anyhow, it wasn’t really enough to spark my fire and write back an
indignaant response to their comments.

It was then that I read my friend Larry’s blog. He wrote:

Racism sucks.

That’s why I’m a bigot instead of racist. Go bigots!

Which got me thinking… Is there such a thing as a difference
between the two? And if there are, can you be one and not the

Racism here is spoken with this definition: Discrimination or prejudice based on race.

A Bigot is: One who is strongly partial to one’s own group, religion, race, or politics and is intolerant of those who differ.


I came to terms with the fact that I was racist a long time ago.
I realize that it’s a part of my upbringing and that there are some
thoughts about race I that just come naturally to me because of my
parents and the media.

The unbearable thought is that I have to come to terms with the fact
that , perhaps, along with being a racist, I am a bigot too.

And then I realized it’s true, I am. That’s why most of my
friends are Asian, why I go to a school that is mostly Asian, why I
enjoy learning about Asian culture more than any others. Sure, it
might not all be Vietnamese stuff, but I definitely identify more with
Asian culture than any others.

Which takes me back to my original thought:
Can you be a racist without being a bigot? Or vice versa?

My answer to that is: I don’t think anybody isn’t a little bit of
a bigot, or a little bit of a racist deep down inside. If you think you’re not, you’re lying to yourself. Our
parents and the media have made sure of that. However, as long as
we don’t act upon those racist and bigoted feelings then we’ll be able
to live our lives as if we weren’t racists or bigots.

But… we can’t forget that we’re human and because we can see
differences in each other plainly, we’ll never truly be without racism
(until we’re all mixed, and then at that point, it’ll be somethign

i think theres a difference between arbitrarily disliking a group, versus disliking a group that already dislikes you first. i see youre viet from orange county. so am i. koreans and viets clash egos a lot in oc because there are so many of us. its not that viets have so much pride that we would dislike others, its that koreans have so much pride that they alienate (and offend) many others, including us numerous viets.

There’s no problem with having pride for your own race.  The problem begins when that pride causes you to think that you’re superior than others.  But I think you’re right…everyone in the world has a little bit of a bigot in them.  It’s normal for people to shun the unfamiliar at first.

we shouldn’t be comfortable with whatever racist or bigoted ideals were instilled on us from parents and/or media…cuz apathy doesn’t fix anything…
c’est la vie my ass.
each of us need to actively take steps in ending it by not passing on those ideals to our children…

davidngo said,

July 29, 2005 @ 7:32 am

i definitely view the CULTURES of some races to be better than others…based on my view of morality.  But those are just cultures which CAN influence people of that race.  But I do not prejudge based on their skin color or ethnicity of how they will be.  Their individual actions and behavior determine whether I will like them or not. 
I think you ARE a racist and a bigot.
And I don’t think it’s okay to just accept that because perhaps a lot of people are.  Society and the norm should not dictate what is right and moral.  Otherwise, if you lived in Nazi Germany…you could rationalize that most of the people around you hate Jews and would like to see them die…and that the Arian Race is superior to all.  Clearly, the excuse that most people are a little racist inside doesn’t excuse you from trying to exclude that immoral thought from your own philosophy.

davidngo said,

July 29, 2005 @ 7:37 am

sorry.  to comment on the cliche, “It’s alright to have a little pride in your race”.  I don’t actually see the truth in that statement.  How does one have pride in something they had no control over?  Shouldn’t pride come from one’s own accomplishments and merit? 
That’s like having pride in the fact that i have brown eyes.  You can love your family and your culture if it brings you happiness and is a moral one.   But taking pride in it is another thing.
I believe that statement is just a slogan for the Collectivist thought.  The thought that one’s worth is not based on individual merit/actions, but on belonging to a Collective…a group of people who share superficial traits like skin color, ethnicity, or citizenship.  Your pride, your worth should be based in yourself…not some collective group.  Collectivist thought only leads to problems.

we all are a little racist deep inside. you’re right. we all are accepting, too, which is why we can still get along. until we’re all mixed and something else sprouts up, like you said, the majority of people will live with the fact that they won’t accept that they’re a little racist inside. you’re right… we were raised that way. we learned about the fact that it was bad in history classes–and we use history and experiences to base our understanding of a certain group of people. we all have laughed at racist jokes (and dammit, they’re frickin’ funny, too!). we’ve come across the few bad nuts that has made us think, “fudge those ___ people! they’re all the same!”–though we know that that’s not really true. in the end, to answer the question, i agree one hundred percent with you.

I agree with you on koreans being totally fucked up (especially girls/korean “christians”/wannabe korean gangsters/etc) but I hope that you don’t think ALL koreans are like that!! I’m korean myself and yes, I CAN be bitchy at times but what girl isn’t at some times, right? Anyways, I still liked the post before this one but I thought I’d comment here just in case you didn’t see. Love how you write, btw.

bobaChick said,

July 29, 2005 @ 8:02 am

but even though we’re all a little like that, though we probably deny it, we should really do something about it to make it not like that in the future… i mean, it’s gettin’ really bad here, even though you can’t really see the damage that’s being done. we should really teach our children to get along… i mean.. we should try hard to instill in them the values of getting along and what not… because as i’m writing this, i’m thinking that they’re going to go through their own experiences and they’re going to judge based on that, too… so it’s like.. a cycle. because my parents taught me not to hate on other cultures/religions/groups of people just because they’re different. but because i drive everyday and it seems that a certain type of people are always hollering at me the wrong and mean way, or a certain type of people are always driving this particular way that is dangerous–anything… i develop my own stereotypes and there… the cycle continues. =/ freaking pathetic.

I don’t think anybody isn’t a little bit of a bigot, or a little bit of a racist deep down inside.”  So true.
I don’t consider myself a racist but I’m a bigot in a lot of ways.  Am I a better person because I’m a bigot?  Of course not, but as shaolinLFE stated above I cannot escape the trappings of my society.  Am I proud of being a bigot?  Again of course not, and I don’t want to be a liar and hide the fact that even though I’m not the former I am definitely the latter .  And why am I continually go on with my life being a bigot is because of my own stubborn opinions and maybe some idiocy wrapped up in one.

SolarCloud said,

July 29, 2005 @ 8:39 am

But then, being a racist can also mean discrimination based on partiality, can’t it? Like the growing number of Japanophiles at my school who don’t really hate other cultures so much as they are more or less indifferent. So, that’s also racism…o_O By those standards, racism isn’t necessarily a bad thing, just natural partiality. However, since the connotation of the word as viewed by society in general is negative, I guess it’s pointless to devote much thought to the real meaning aside from personal knowledge. I learned something today, then! ^_^

sorry, i’m a korean person. haha. mm, racism and bigotry aren’t good, but of course we’ve all got it inside of us. it’s just human nature. i guess it has a lot to do with how you’re raised, where you live, etcetc.
i hate a lot of the korean people in my school. which is no wonder why i have no pride. what turned me against them? if i made a list, i’d be here all day. and of course, they weren’t open-minded. hated people out of their race. didn’t like who i was befriending. the rest is history. yes, i love my non-korean friends. which make up 99% of it all.
i doubt you’re the Hitler of xanga. although that’s amusing.

s1ms said,

July 29, 2005 @ 10:26 am

yeah. according to your definition, biggotry doesnt have to be descrimination, whereas racism is.
i dont think im either. i dont know if you remember what i said yesterday, but i find theres just a large portion of asians i dont like, despite my fetish for them=]. its not cuz of their skin color though, its because of who they are. just like i dont like black people who think because of their past suppression they should still be overly benefitted. i dont like it when some of my white relatives call those same black people niggers and complain the other way around.
and as far as bigotry goes… i may not agree with the way another person lives his or her life, goes about doing certain things, or whatever, but ill try to see their point of view.
iono. i think its wrong to be like that. but i know some of it we cant help. it goes beyond race and stuff. plenty of ppl have prejudice against those overweight, those who talk funny, look funny, act funny, smell funny, taste funny, think funny, typ fuhnE, eat funny, laugh funny, move funny, or are handicapped.

The world is going to fall apart fast with ideas like that. Creating racists stereotypes only limits intelligence. The more we discriminate against each other the more we’ll exclude ideas created by each other.Another disappointing fact is that too many people have way too much pride in their culture. So much so that they identify only within their culture and imitate the general values, customs, and attitudes of their culture. That’s what creates those stereotypes.I will say that I admire your courage but I disagree with your ideas.

i think it’s very possible to be racist without being a bigot. Nowadays, I see so much internal racism; the Asian that wishes she was White, or the Black guy who swears to God that he’s Asian, while both of them denounce the (quite obvious) fact as to what they really are.I like the idea of being Hitler of Xanga. Don’t tell anyone :P that was four years ago.

dave chappelle made a joke that if everybody were to have interracial marriages, we’d all look Filipino. I’m Filipino and I take pride in that and I’m dating an Indian South Asian fella.. It saddens me when I see pictures of a group of friends of an exclusive race. hello, everybody we are  in the United States!Racism is borne of prejudice, and prejudice of ignorance. Yes, we can still be very educated yet have our racial biases hence the bigotry. But I think it’s time to kill the ethnocentrist and begin to be open to “others.” The world will seem a lot larger, no limits.
Webster defines a bigot as “a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices”
So to answer your question, yes I consider myself  ignorant but never racist or a bigot.

i grew up, and being sucha  mutt myself, my family is very diverse. i have cousins that are full chinese, full black, full german, full native american, and some nutty mixes of jamaican. i thought they were all the same, i couldn’t tell the difference between them. i thought we all were quite the same. i didn’t know that my cousin was black and i wasn’t, the thought never occured to me… same with my chinese cousins and german cousins. i don’t look a think like any of them though.
to be honest i don’t understand the concept of racism, at all.

I use to identify myself like that, asian friends, asian cultures. But got sick of it. Most asians have that “crab mentality” if one of you rises, others got to pull you down. Or rather most asian parents hold that mentality. You know what i mean? They have to always out do some other family, or ‘be better’ in some way. Or it must be just a filipino thing, becuase from what I have observed. Elderly and few young ones are always in competition in something. Wether it be looks, personal possesions, or a job. They have to be better someway or the other.I’m one of those asian kids, who hate other asian kids, cuz they are “so damn asian.”
