    The Ignorance Is Real!!

    It's hard to believe that in this day and age racism still exist. The ignorance of these people kill me. I hate these kind of people with a passion. It's amazing how people think that just because you're different you are beneath them. Who the hell are these people to pass...

    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 Am You and You Are Me....

    I will never understand racism. MOST of us are humans of some ilk. Some of us may be some form of sub-human.{I learned this from being on-line}.heh However,we all seem to have sprung from the same  maternal loins. We are brothers and sisters who enjoy the bickering that...

    I Was and Still Am

    When I was younger, and sometimes I still do this, I would research racist groups and their symbols and tattoos, call myself educating myself on how to recognize one before I got too close on him.  Skinheads and the Aryan Brotherhood, KKK...all them.  It just fascinates...
