    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 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...

    Indeed I Am

    Everyone is equal so I can't stand racism/sexism/any other kind of discrimination. If nobody discriminated, the world would be a lot more peaceful.

    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...

    Am Just Saying ...

    ..Sometimes, racisms is not from just others races or nationality, sometimes it comes from your own kind and worst off, sometimes it comes from your own MIND, the struggle of just being you. No one can always be an angle, especially when misunderstood...

    I have seen and heard too much bashing,

    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...

    Julie Widner was terrified — afraid her husband would do something reckless, even disfigure himself. "We had come so far," she says. "We had left the movement, had created a good family life. We had so much to live for. I just thought there has to be someone out there who will...

    My dad was a policeman.

    We lived in an area that was about 50/50 white/Latino. It was a mostly harmonious community. There was a great deal of intermingling. Both my brothers married beautiful Latino girls. I have the most beautiful and precious nieces and nephew. It's sad that one of my nieces...

    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...

    Breaking Chains

    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
