    I Suppose I Could Be Racist

    I suppose I have a lot of reasons to hate people in general.  I'm brown and  have been discriminated against on several occasions (thats another story).  However, I simply cannot find the evil inside of me that enjoys being cruel to nice/thoughtful people.  I...

    I'm Fascinated By Racism For A Very Simple Reason.

    For me, it is incomprehensible.  Not because I think it shouldn't exist for whatever politically correct rubbish that is currently in favour, it changes every week.  What I find facinating is the fact that relatively intelligent people waste their time, thoughts and...

    I Was and Still Am

    Racism is only fuelled by hate and the individual themselves. If you learn to love, you won't see people for colour and accept people for who they are.
