    Collateral Damage

    My Iraqi friend, Haji, has the most beautiful eyes that I have ever seen on a human being, man or woman. They are a bright golden brown and fringed with long dark lashes, and they flash with love and pride as he tells me of his daughters, with whom I used to work at the local...

    The Human Race

    I don't see the color of your skin. I don't see your religion. I see what and who you are from the inside. What is in your heart and soul. I believe there is only one race. The human race.

    I was brought up that we are all created in the

    image of G-d. Therefore, to discriminate against others because of their skin color, ethnicity, or religion is anathema to me. I am proud to say that I have many close friends across the human spectrum- including whites, blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Christians...

    To Cure Racism We Need To Cure Ignorance

    We the humans with all the technologies of today, are still very primitive when it comes to stereotyping or following someone blindly. In the society we have today, one lunatic can still stand up and convince the others that they are the god's sent and their word is a word of god...

    I saw this group on the news from a small town

    in the Deep South. They actually have a solid plan on overcoming discrimination with a therapeutic model for building relationships compassionately in communities across social boundaries such as race. They are raising money for a documentary to start a national conversation and...

    We are all humans, we are breathing the same air

    and we are living on the same planet. Nobody has the possiblity to choose the race where he is born into so we never should prejudice someone beause of his race. There are in all races good people and bad ones.

    Truth is that racism in the United States is

    kept alive by the elite, by the rich. Fact is that they love to see poor killing poor. Here in the year 2014 we should be able to move on beyond racial barriers. For Christ sake, even our commander in chief is himself of mixed race ethnicity. Of course we all have our...

    Twisted Mouths

    The twisting wisps held a deadly knowledge. They meandered in the air like smoke in an old time Jazz club. Not like the Disneyfied caricatures of a jazz club we have today, with their No Smoking signs and courteous bar tenders. No, I'm talking about the real deal. A...

    Many people confuse racism with racial

    prejudice. Some will point out that some African Americans are racially prejudiced; they then draw the conclusion that they are racist. This is false because they don't benefit from a system which hands out privileges due to skin color. As white people, we do benefit from...
