The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Racism?

    All these anti racism ads on tv.... people protesting against racism, famous people on tv compaigning against racism.... my school is full of posters that say "not black not white just human"

    i wonder, racism? never seen people get racially discrimininated.... i notice more of the anti movement than of the racism movement... all these people spending time stopping racism... i just wonder what the hell they are worrying about. Racism is dead... at least in my experience.

    In the states, racism isn't necessarily as blatant, and more often its become prejudice as opposed to active racism, like the good ol boys calling black people n***** and the like.

    well i think it's kinda cool you think that way......but i do believe rasism still exists. It's gotten better progressively over the past 20 years, but there are still throwbacks out there.

    I'd say racist attitudes still pervades every aspect of all societies, but to a lessor extent than during history

    Reinier: Maybe I live in another Holland you do, but I will give you an example.... A fitnessclub that asks 300,= euro in the month to train there. That is called discrimination at the door. Or clubs where I can walk in without a problem, but my best friend, he is a black dude, can not enter even when he is with his white girlfriend.

    What's racist is the fact that everyone that's not white gets more money for college, if you aren't white you don't need good qualifications to get a job, that's some racist bullshit.

    I live in the UK and racism isn't dead. Its just suppressed and subtle. Holland is world-famous for its tolerance but I suppose there are Nazi wank*rs everywhere.

    Often ethnic minority cmmunities are even more racist than the majority populations they live in - but racism is an attitude - its not calling somone racist names when they walk down the street its different now - its the way someone in a shop serves you, the looks you get in certain areas of town, etc etc.
    I remember being in a club and overhearing a white girl tell her girlfriend about one of my mates:
    "He's soo fit"
    And her mate replied, "yeah - but he's Asian."

    She fancied my mate but didn't act on it because he wasn't white/
    I mean - WHAT THE FUKK DOES IS THAT - WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES RACE MAKE THERE????

    That's racism.


    FYI I think of myself as a British citizen but I am proud that my ethinicity is Indian. There is no conflict in my opinion.

    Racism is still alive and is entrenched in the US society in ways that are not obvious. It's not a matter of white supremists dragging black men around tied to their pickup trucks (1996 I think) either.

    When I was in college we would walk to the bars. I would go with a friend sometimes (black) and when we walked home at 2am, the police would follow us home about a block behind us. When my friend was driving my car around and got pulled over for no apparent reason, I got a call to confirm that he had my permission to have my car but when I got pulled over in his car (much better than mine, btw) I was let go when they saw I wasn't drunk. Note that this happened in the "progressive" town of Boulder, CO where 'liberals' outnumber 'conservatives' by 4 to 1.

    It's a matter of people saying "I have no problem with XYZ race as long as they don't live near me." That opinion is much more wide spread than people may think.
    Now in pain, only working out the walking sticks.

    yeah i noticed that, WTF???

    black comedians always make fun of white people, if a white person did that they would most likely get a cap busted in their ass!
