Dear White people why the double standards ?

BlackRock HereIGo
Dec 5

On one hand I’ve seen/heard ( more often than not and most ) white people frown on cultural habits of colored people like eating with their hands ( even if it entails cleaning hands before eating ) , taking shoes out of house or in a designated corner inside the house and walking bare foot inside etc etc.

On the other hand seen so many white people ( men and women alike ) put their personal belongings on the floor in public toilets , subway / train cars etc which are clearly full of germs, put their dirty shoes in their bags/purse with the other things ( not in a separate bag to avoid everything else getting dirty ) to name a few.

Why is there such a double standard ? Why is their such an entitlement to call habits of others unfit when you’re in no way better ?

    Go back to Hindustan. Ever notice it’s the brown people trying to come live in White Western culture and not the other way around.

      Yes Middle East is a perfect example!!! They need to stop selling oil to the white world and keep it for themselves and other “colored” people!!! I’ll bet that will work out great!

      Wait. But you’re here enjoying life based on that massacre. Doesn’t that make you guilty by association? Lol. If you’re soooo insulted by the “whiteman” then go the fuck back to where you came from or start a revolution to help the natives take back their land.

    Sorry got distracted by that. White peoples put personal belonging on public bathroom floors? ‘Colored people’ eat with their hands? Wtf is wrong with you. You’re projecting your racists thoughts.

      @HerelGo you are a racist. You also sexually assaulted me.

      When are women going to get justice for the awful conduct of these misogynistic black rock employees? #MeToo #BelieveAllWomen

    Americans are double standard. On one hand, they complain about Chinese and Koreans eating dogs as dogs are intelligent animal. On the other hand, they eat millions of cows and pigs without guilt even though cow is considered sacred in India and pig has even higher intelligence than dog.

      Buffalos are men's best friends. They help us growing crops. They are hard working animals. Stop eating beef!

      OTOH, dogs are just wolves. The same thing.

    Not double standard. Just different cultural norms coupled with a closed mind.
    You don't see it in just white people - Asians, Indians, Hispanics etc... Are all susceptible

      Not exactly the way I wanted my post to be interpreted.
      To clarify, culture plays a role in defining what is normal and provides a guideline for proper social behavior (and also defines right vs wrong).
      So it's not surprising that when cultures mix they find each other barbaric or gross.
      Those who recognize that different cultures have different norms simply notice this as a Delta, those who don't recognize this as inferiority or dirtiness

  • Clearly your segmentation is wrong. You need to take course in create segments and cohorts.

    Isn't this post clear sign of ur double standard?? U are questioning white ppl's habits/routines while saying ur routines/habits are unquestionable.

    Anyways it seems u are unaware of the fact that white ppl's shoes, belongings don't catch dirt and germs. Hence white ppl can walk with their shoes in their 🏠, put bags in various places u mentioned. :p

    Because we are all full of contradictions. My beliefs are better than your beliefs. Culture evolves and you may find in the future that eggs do not get refrigerated and shoes are removed in a lot of Anglo-Saxon households

      Most people I know remove their shoes inside their homes? (I am white) I always remove mine at my own and most friends places I visit. Who wants dirty shoes on their floor? Just seems like good basic thing to do.

    Yeah people are comfortable doing what they do and are uncomfortable when some body does something differently than them. This is true world wide.
    Grow up and stop whining. This is not a racist subject for you to call out.

    I once took my shoes off when entering a white woman house and she seemed disgusted by me showing my socks and into her house, but clearly I respected the house so much I didn't want to dirty it with my shoes

      Sweat is basically piss, feet are always sweaty. What's the difference? Muddy shoes are a different story

      are you saying our skin is dirtier than our shoes?
      Dec 5
    • Microsoft YsTJ07
      Not dirtier but not clean either. Why take off your shoes when someone will have to clean up anyway. The exception to this are slippers because you just throw them into the washing machines and actually save time.

    • Microsoft YsTJ07
      Also I feel like you should just follow the custom of the host, the host probably feels weird when they are walking around in shoes and making your socks dirty. Or they might be sensitive to foot smell.

    In Brazil and Chile it is considered rude to eat with your hands. In India, the Middle East, and wait for it.......... some parts of Africa it is considered rude and I'll mannered to eat with your left hand. Don't know why you think this is a white vs POC cultural habit when it differs across ethnicities. Regardless, never really heard of anyone discriminated against for eating with their hands. Especially when virtually everyone (white, black, asian, hispanic, etc) uses the hands to eat fruit, pizza, cup cakes, popcorn, chicken wings, hotdogs, burgers, potato chips, and other foods. As far as wearing, or not wearing, or whatever point your trying to get across about shoes, not sure that is a race related issue either. If you are making an attempt to start a race baiting article, most people tackle statistical issues like employment levels, hate groups, poverty etc. Anyways good luck with your divisive post!

      Isn't the reason that eating with your left hand is rude is because it's the "wiping hand"?
      Dec 5
    • Orlando Health Boondock
      That is my understanding. According to some Indian friends of mine "wiping with the left hand" is mostly a thing of the past but the habit of not eating with it still remains throughout parts of the country.
