    Rascism: a Message to My Generation

    racism in today's world  with our younger generation is the most ridiculous thing experienced. Now one thing I want to express that many people seem to forget when thinking of racism is that it is not limited to just white & black, but is experienced by every race. And...

    Yeah, I Said It And I'd Say It Again

    Parents shouldn't let their little girls dress like grown women. Wearing skimpy clothes and make up draws the wrong kind of attention to little girls. Stop dressing them up like they're going clubbing or starring in a Britney Spears video. It's not cute! Yeah, I said it and I...

    Muslims are treated poorly

    because a lot of times on the news, they specifically state the group of people committing the crime were Muslims. if the standards were the same for other major religions, it'd make those religions look bad too. there's good and bad in every group. stop discriminating.

    I get tired of people claiming religion is the

    cause of alot of problems when it's actually the people who are the cause. And those are the people who take their religious beliefs to the extreme and commit the most harmful acts to others that are the problem.

    People are so against labelling themselves,

    but they fail to realize that our brains work in stereotypes and labels. We need labels for communication. They aren't nearly as bad as people dramatize them to be.
