Fail me, whatever. At least watch the video.
The young black generation?

I think you're a little confused.

Every generation of youth, regardless of race, think it's cool to be stupid. I personally have encountered Native, Asian, Indian, American, South African, South American, and white European young people who thrive on stupidity.

for example when we talking about natives my dad would always talking about how they take all the government benefits but never give back or be productive & sometimes when i look back on the facts i do agree with him in someways, but i just wish he reword it so it doesn't sound like hes hating on natives

i think its just that some ppl word things wrong that make them sound like a racist
Racism is more often than not the product of ignorance. There are very clearly defined reasons why First Nations people receive certain government benefits, and as a people we certainly do give back and are productive. If you agree with him, I suggest you educate yourself a little more on the Canadian governments position on First Nations people, and more broadly how we have contributed to Canada, your Dad should do the same.

Old people are racists because of all the shit that went on back then. I believe people are a lot more tolerant and understanding these days, and thank god for that. Showing compassion was a sign of weakness in the eyes of some people in the old days.


Having said all that, I cannot, in all honesty, say I am not racist, because I catch myself saying shit all the time. They are just words, but then again, words are hurtful. Perhaps it's because back then it was acceptable? I've changed a lot over the years and my wife has helped me with it. My children are uber cool. They are disgusted by some of the things I say and shame me.

So I should try to find that thread about thanking mothers and thank my wife for being a good mother to my children.

I don't think racism will ever go away, but things are getting better.

racism will never go away, we can try but it wont. I use racial slurs all the time and when someone tells me hey i dont like that, ill respect their wishes. I honestly dont care what people call me. Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.

To answer the title of the thread, What would I do?

In that case I might interrupt them breifly there at the restaurant similar to the first guy and say this is 2012, I think if you two love each other go for it and as a loving father you should support your daughters position. I dont want to create a confrontation so I would just say something quick and go on with whatever I was doing.

So basically you would go up to them and say a bunch of shit that has nothing to do with the father being racist....Whether the the father supports his daughter or not has nothing to do with you....The father being racist, however, does....You would be doing something stupid if you talked to the father about anything else other than racism...

Sorry, I meant to imply that I would butt in like the first guy in that video and confront them due to the racism. (ie. this is 2012, racism is wrong and no longer accepted)
