    Racism = Disgusting

    My whole life I have been involved with other races than my own. Just to let you know, I am Choctaw, Scottish, English, Cherokee, and a couple of others. I'm a Heinz 57. Anyway, I grew up with cousins who are African-american, Caucasian, and native, as well as Asian, Caucasian...

    The word "racist" has done more to divide people

    than the actual idea of racism. There are very few true racists. Only gangs. Everyone is born into a gang. We call them families. Orphans form a gang with other orphans. In school we form gangs known as "a circle of friends". We join gangs in the form of sports teams. We...

    I really loath it when people play the race

    card on everything. I'm black, yes I know it's not nice when a white prison call a coloured person black. I am Black, and regardless of your reason for calling me black, I'm proud to be black. #Period!!

    I've hurt my self physically

    and mentally because of racism. I was continuously bullied for many years and I woke up everyday wondering why I was still alive. But I believe there is a reason I didn't take my own life. I have to believe that something good will come out of it.

    I'm against anyone that is against a particular

    group because of a stereotype of that group. Remember, we are all foreigners that came to this country at one time or another. As such we at one time or another face the same racial stereotyping that the newer immigrants are facing. If you doubt me, do research on the history...

    Nothing is wrong with different skin color.

    Everyone is the same. We are equal. We are one.

    While racists have become a less common thing

    over the years, some are still racist. I am pretty tired of the racial slurs, and stereotypes being placed on others. Am I really less human than you are, just because I was born a different skin color? I honestly don't get why having a different skin color really matters, we...

    My Parents are racist.

    I extremely hate racism,

    no one should be judged or bullied because of their culture or colour. It's disgusting and yes I know what it feels like. I wouldn't want any one to be racist to anyone for any reason. It's stupidly ridiculous like come on grow the **** up.

    I saw this group on the news from a small town

    I dont know why the color of our skin matters.

    I dont think it matters. I am against people who treat others differently because of their skin tone. Having dark or very white or black or other skin tones wont harm you. It is not a contagious disease or something. I kept hearing people commenting / laughing / gossiping about...

    Pigeon Holes

    Any way to discriminate against someone is wholly stupid. Each person merits the respect we ourselves desire from others. To allow your misconceptions to govern how you view someone isn't just stupid, insipid, dumb, it's self defeating because if you can do it why can't they...

    I grew up in a very small town.

    There were no other faces than white faces. In school, at church and at home I heard and lived with racial slurs, homophobic slurs and prejudice. There was no tolerance for anyone different. I never understood such hatred. As soon as I graduated from high school and left the one...

    I have seen and heard too much bashing,

    I really don't understand how someone could be

    racist, it sounds so stupid hating someone for their color, I just laugh at these stupid people. I look at it this way, I like all white, brown, black, Chinese people as long as your cool with me, I'm cool with you. Not saying I'd be racist if we weren't cool.

    why someone would be racist towards a certain race. No one is born disliking a race. Not everyone is the same but yet they catogorize everyone in that race the same. I just dont understand. someone of a different race may have done something to me in the past but it doesnt mean...

    One's race doesn't necessarily make them good

    or bad. Like us Italians, there are many of us who are good kind people, and then there are those Italians like Benito Mussolini who were terrible. Race has nothing to do with being good or bad.
