I Am Against Racism

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 806 People

    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...

    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 have seen and heard too much bashing,

    degrading, negativity and prejudice. I see it in the courts, schools and community. Because I can not keep my mouth shut I am often in discussions about racially equality and opportunity with those who either do not know better or choose to be ignorant. It is time we all treat...

    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...

    Breaking Chains

    The things that held me back in life were like chains.  They were painful things like lost love, divorce, an abusive childhood.  I had disappointments that many of my dreams would never be fulfilled.  My childhood was difficult, I felt ridiculed, bullied and at times, lonely...

    One Person

    I am against many things. But racism is the worst. Especially when you know it still happens. Now in my class, there was a study about the Holocaust in my English, and how many of us would be taken away to camps because of our skin color/eye color/religion. And it was shocking to...

    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...

    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...

    Just Dont Understand It!!

    i mean i just dont understand racism, cos i mean, after all, we all live in this world together, and we are all just trying to get through life just like everyone else, so why should we let the colour of one's skin, get in the way of our lives, it just seems stupid to me!!

    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.

    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.

    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...
