I had a license plate that said IMWHITE? I was out at lunch when I saw an elderly gentleman with a plate that said IBBLACK.

I don't think myself racist or prejudiced. I like everyone, but does my statement then create a double standard?

No, it is stating fact (if you or your vehicle are white). Implication of racist overtones may be conjurred in the minds of the hypersensitive or those who are indeed racist.

Excellent point, if someone takes that to be a racists statement, they themselves are the ones that is racist in this case, especially if you are stating a fact. :toast:

I was pondering that one, just a statement out of pride for oneself.

No, acknowledging your own race would not be racist.

Would one that says IMHUNG be considered racist towards those of far east decent?
