Are you guys really racist on this site?

For the most part, probably not. People tend to forget, it's possible to enjoy a style of humor because of its grittiness or shock value rather than because you agree with it - or perhaps even because it's so far from your own views as to have shock value. I had a circle of friends some years ago (some of them black) who turned me on to Johnny Rebel's music; we used to joke about the songs and throw around tongue-in-cheek references to them, and marvel at the fact that someone actually got away with this **** at one time. None of us actually agreed with Johnny Rebel, and I'd frankly be uncomfortable around anyone who did.

Understand something, too: making fun of a stereotype is not necessarily "racism", so long as you have it in perspective. If anything, making light of a negative stereotype (in the right context, of course) can be a way of stripping it of its power, and often a way of calling out the people on both sides of the equation who give it that power. It's when you start actually believing the ******** - prejudging people based on those stereotypes, or treating them as if they apply to the group as a whole - that it becomes racist.

Yes. Although they will not admit it, or will genuinely think that they are not. But the fact that they contribute to and laugh at racist content, means that they are if only on a subconscious level. The people giving me red thumbs will insist that its a joke and that they would never actually act racist. But they do harbor an unknown racism that festers in the depths of their mind

I'll admit I'm racist. Although to me I can clearly tell the difference from an African American and a glock carrying drug dealing thug in Brooklyn NY. To me though, beaners are worse than ******* . I'm talking about actually beaners in L.A or some other border towns/states that shoot rival gangs and deal drugs and kill cops. That's what I consider a beaner.
Oh yes, I also don't like it when I see a Mexican family walk into where I work with literally 8 ******* children, one small child and still pregnant. I always imagine one mexican friend talking to another mexican friend like this.

Guy 1: Hey amigo, The United States government will give you a monthly check each month if you have a child.
Guy 2: No ******* way that's awesome, what if you had two children, then they'd give us 2 checks!
Guy 1: Homie, that's the best idea ever!
Those type of people annoy me and should be sentenced to execution.

Well... Yes, sometimes... Often... Very often...   
Shouldn't be too much of a problem.
