with all things being equal and/or unknown, do you secretly or not so secretly root for you own race?


example:

clicking through the channels and you come across a sporting event. You don't know anything about the participants other than what they look like.

nothing invested, no allegiance to school,state or country


one is your race, the other(s) involved is of another race(s)


Do you even notice? If you notice is your first inclination to root for the person of your own race?

Sometimes, Wayne Cherbet is a good example. I wouldn't give the guy a second thought if he wasn't a successful short, white guy in both a sport and position dominated by tall black guys.

On the other side of the spectrum, Donald Brashear is one of my favorite Philadelphia Flyers. I guess I root for the underdog/oddball.

It's kinda like Danny DeVito making the NBA.

but that involves other influences besides race


if you know nothing about the two college basketball schools/teams


do you root for the basketball team with the most guys of your own race?

precisely ...

if you don't like or dislike someone because of other ties (ie chiefs,faiders,KU,MU etc)


do you tend to root for people more like yourself .... you own race etc?

A group of Flips doing any organized sport together would be a freakshow that anyone would root for.

I've never really considered race when watching sports, except to make fun of the basketball team with the most white guys (I'm white BTW).

but I don't root for them just cause they're white.

I don't know if this qualifies as a sport, but I root for it nonetheless.

Dancers practice at a pole dancing school in Singapore March 9, 2006. The dance school is the first in Singapore to introduce pole dancing which is a new form of exercise adopted by women from all over the world. The routine requires strength, flexibility and athleticism in order to execute the moves well and with ease.

I think white males get the short end of the stick. We're always having to put the toilet seat down and pay child support and stuff. Of course I root for one when I see one... we deserve to win at *something*.

there are many levels to the sport/race chain, depending on sport.

for instance, more athletically challenging sports go something like this:

Black
Hispanic
White/Europian
Asian
Indian (feather)
Indian (dot)

I don't exclusively root for any one race; even my own.

03-10-2006, 12:41 PM
Yes I do.

As a black guy, I can admit to it, especially if it is a sport that there are traditionally not many black guys.

Hockey
Skating
Chess
Strongest-man
Ultimate-fighting
Golf
Swimming
etc.

I have also found myself watching a sport that I would usually care less about, if I see someone playing it that looks like me.

Ok so, my History class took a field trip to the Museum of Tolerance. Its a museum showing kids not to be prejudice and all that good stuff. Anyways, one exhibit is two doors next to each other. One door has a sign hanging over it saying "Those with prejudice walk through this door" and the other door's sign said "Those without prejudice walk through this door". Obviously the door for people without prejudice isn't meant to be openable (if thats a word) because as the tour guide says "Everyone has prejudice".
So, to test the "prejudice theory" I start tugging on the door and say "What the hell is wrong with this damn door, did some damn Jew make this?" ... the tour guide kicked me out ... and i ended up having to sit on the bus for 15 minutes.

Ahh, the race of gypsies...Technically, of course, there isn't one single ethnicity that is considered "gypsies." My grandmother is a Basque, from the Pyranees region of Spain. They are considered one of the gypsy "tribes" or "clans." Those people are separatists, though, somewhat xenophobic, and when her parents left when she was a child and moved to the United States, they were basically disowned by the "clan," for all intents and purposes. She wouldn't be shot, or anything like that, for trying to go back, but they wouldn't exactly welcome her with open arms.
