White people are secret racists.

(CNN) -- We're just going to put it out there: Behind closed doors, whites talk differently about blacks.

At least that's what two sociologists found after conducting a study of college students across the country.

One of the researchers, Joe Feagin, said that's why it comes as no surprise to him that a powerful politician such as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid would talk about Barack Obama's skin color and use the term "Negro dialect" in what he considered a private conversation.

Speaking not of Reid but of his conclusions drawn from his research, Feagin said, "Most whites have sharply reduced the blatantly racist stuff they do in public, while they still do huge amounts in private."

"It's just social correctness in the front stage. The scale of this is gigantic on the backstage, which is why the notion of a post-racial America is laughable," said Feagin, a professor at Texas A&M University.

Funny that this article doesn't seem to mention how non-white racial groups in America talk about other racial groups 'behind closed doors.' The claim that 'white people' are racists is in itself a racist statement. Extrapolating that because some whites do it then all whites do it presumes that there is something about being white that makes you racists.

Sounds like bullshit to me, but what do I know.

Let me ask you this:

Ever listened to a black, hispanic, or asian comedian who made jokes about white people? I have. Espeically black comedians. Come to think of it, I've heard black comedians make a hell of a lot of racial jokes about whites, but also to a lesser extent about hispanics and asians.

Those fucking racists! I have to run away and cry myself to sleep now!
