    Not Even Clear On How You Determie a "Race"

     I remember being confused about this in college when we studied races.  There didn't seem to be any clear standard for putting this person in one race and another in another.  When they asked me on the college application what my race was, I put "human"...

    The Dream

    I was just a little girl when Martin Luther King walked his historic march & gave a speech that would later be considered one of the greatest speeches of mankind. Even at that early age, I sensed significance and valiance in this daring man with his determination that the words...

    I am a Residential Care aid,

    I am 37 years old. I have never been accused of

    being a racist until I joined this web site Experience Project. The untrue label comes from two Muslims and one Atheist. The first time I was accused was because a Muslim man kept trying to get me to like him romantically. He eventually insisted I never told him I love someone...

    "I am not racist" is usually the first thing

    out of someone's mouth when they say something incredibly racist.

    Few years ago, a black girl said

    that she liked my hair. I actually hate my hair because they're thin and greasy and I don't really like my curls most if the time. So when she complimented me, I said what I believed in, I said I don't like my hair they're ugly. And then I saw the look on her face and she...

    If everyone was blindfolded

    and put in a room and just talked, all would find good things in each other. If we all were blindfolded and touched each other we would enjoy touching and being touch.

    Black Unity?

    I think it's kinda tragic that there's a group on here for "black unity" instead of one for INTERRACIAL UNITY. That's an oxymoron if I've ever heard one. How is segregating yourself and preaching hatred toward people who mix with everyone else positive or unity?  So sad that...

    School Class Talk

    I personally do not believe in tolerance . I feel as if no one should have to tolerate another race . We should all accept ! We are not all equal anymore , and as fùcked up as it is to say we need to all accept it . Instead of people trying so hard to prove how much they aren't...

    Race was originally made up

    so the powerful can get (and maintain) all the money and resources. It works well because people look superficially different enough for racists to say that race is biological. It's the ultimate business hustle.

    I've Been Accused Of Being One, But I'm Not.

    I think the reason people have mistaken me for being racist before is because I try to not worry about race and just treat everyone the same. So if I don't get along with a black guy or an Asian, I'm going to treat him exactly the same way I treat anyone else I dislike. For that...

    I don't like black people more

    than I like white people. I don't like anyone just because they're black. I think it's just as serious a crime for a black person to rob a white person as it is for a white person to rob a black person. People aren't better just because they're black. It's racist to favor one...

    Earlier today someone called me racist just

    because I said I don't date black girls. I mean it's not because they're a different color. It's just simply because I'd rather date my own race.. Besides that I have tons of friends that are girls of a different race. So no I ain't racist.. (To the person that said I was) -.-
