Someone just replied to a months-old post , where I was poking fun at the now-defunct "Gold Fo Ya Mouth". They accused me of being racist.
I live in an Ohio town of around 25,000, with a relatively small minority population. I saw little racism. What showed was from people who I considered ignorant, even before I witnessed their racism. I joined the Air force, and was further insulated from racism. I was in my late 20's before I finally realized that there are some otherwise normal but racist people who use the word nigger and mean it. It was as shocking as discovering that there were relatively intelligent people who don't read for fun, at about the same age.
I don't think there are practical differences between races, and any average differences are massively overwhelmed by individual and environmental differences.
I am very prejudiced against thugs and thug cultures. What I know of hiphop culture qualifies as thug--glorifying violence, misogyny and crime. It isn't a race thing--I've got the same prejudice against outlaw biker culture and white supremacist culture for the same reasons.
My tastes run to practical and functional--I don't like excessive and useless decoration, whether it is grills, gigantic cowboy belt buckles, riced out cars, gigantic monster trucks, or overdone, tacky BBQ guns.
