  1. He'll eat a Dorito but not a Cheeto... :harvey:

    Thread worthy? Probably not... Lemme fix this...

    Do you think pets can be racist? I honestly think they can be in the sense that if they are not around a good mix of people, the different smells or accents of a voice can throw them off and make them angry/skittish/agressive. I am sure this wouldn't be considered "racist" I just didn't know a better way to ask this question.

    What do you think?
  2. Possibly.

    I don't think they'd inherently be racist, but if they have enough bad experiences with people of a certain race they could possibly become aggressive towards or afraid of people who look similar.

  4. Not really. They may end up reacting a certain way to certain races, but they wouldn't be doing it solely based off the fact that it is a different race. I don't think they are really able to make those distinctions.
  5. Yeah that is why I said it isn't the best word to use. My second German Shepherd I had growing up, he was weird around people with hats and black people. The few times I had my black friends over, they never came back cause he would show his teeth at them. I think this has to do with our old neighbor though. He was a light skinned black boy (his mother was white), very young. He used to throw stuff at my dog and tease him through the fence. One day, he got out and actually ran after the boy, grabbed him at the back of the leg, and held him to the ground. He needed stitches from it but it wasn't as bad as you'd think. My dog felt so bad after, he had a stress seizure. I think he wanted to hurt the boy but couldn't bring himself to do it. He was about 135 pounds and all muscle so it nearly gave my mom a heart attack when he ran after that kid. Another thing that set things off with him was when groups of blacks would walk by the house. They were usually loud. He would stand up on the fence and just stare at them so meanly. They would always cross the street when they seen him lolol The used to do it when I would be walking him too. He was an intimidating dog. Anyways, yea I don't think this was a bout race but out of his bad experience with one person of a said race.
