    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 Facinated By...

    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...

    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...
