This is a normal post I'm tempted to agree;
but there's a whole load of literature on threat perception. People are far more likely to perceive a black person as a threat, which suggests that there's a big problem with institutional and subconscious racism that puts black people more at risk.

Worryingly, it's not just whites that fall prey to this misperception - there's a famous line from Jesse Jackson from Newsweek (13.xii.1993): "[T]here is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery, then look and see somebody white and feel relieved."

Which is a bit scary, really

This is a normal post As a fairly pale white man, I'm scared by both white and black men, can't stand either
but only if they are tall and muscly. Short and muscly asian men are like dwarves.
Well, that's my racist message for today.

I don't know why that's scary - he lives in the US where he is far, far more likely to be the victim of a black street robber than a white one. If If there's heavy traffic then I'm more careful crossing the street than when there's light traffic. Both scenarios could see me get run over, but one is far more likely to.
