    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...

    We Changed By Not Changing At All.

    By how many people use this out-dated term.  EP is about communication and learning.  I've communicated this idea on EP, in my life, in working with others and now.  THERE IS ONLY ONE HUMAN RACE.  We are referring to bias, prejudice, white or black or...

    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...
