    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    Wow. I just realized

    that being hurt because somebody isn't liking you is another form of ignorance just as racism. Or not liking yourself. Also a form of ignorance such as racism. "Is he a Jew?" "Is that person one of those people?" The source is from the same delusion of mind.

    So, this is going to sound dark

    but have you ever laughed at someone being racist just for the pure absurdity of it? I can't even waste my energy getting worked up over it anymore like when I was younger. I just read someone's post who referred to Aussies as Pink Pigs and I almost lost my coffee in laughter...
