    That Just Wouldn't Make Sense

    i grew up in a family where race was never an issue, never raised. My mother was white my father was black, but to be honest their color in the house was never discussed, they were simply mum and dad. The first time a race issue came up in our house was when roots came on, when...

    I am a Residential Care aid,

    Truth be told sadly even

    because of environment, sickness, ignorance, or just the way they were raised we always gonna find some among us who hate others and this is not because what they do but just because of what they are. It's as if their self esteem are so low that there's nothing they have done in...

    School Class Talk

    I was observing another teacher a while back as part of our 'learning from others' programme where us other teachers feed back to the ones we were observing and so on. Any way the class talk turned to racism and one boy turned round saying "I'm so not racist" to which the teacher...

    I don't consider myself racist

    but I just don't get it. Why can there be a NAACP, UNCF and other organizations for race but as soon as anyone even mentions the slightest thing about an organization being for Whites or a specific race it becomes racist. I am not talking about the KKK, I am talking about some...

    I'm Not Racist

    I hate racist jokes and am never racist. I hate people who are racist. I don't see any difference in colour/religion or gender and I don't see how other people can make such a big deal out of it. I hate when people see it as a horrid thing that people from other countries come to...

    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...

    Person, Not Color

    I am not racist. I don't believe the color of anyone's skin really matters. All that really matters is the person's heart and who they are inside. I think racism is ignorant and stupid, and people who judge people, just the the color of their skin, need to get their head examined...

    I have spent many times in an international

    networks of language schools, so I could not be racist due to presence of a really many people, who were black, yellow. I have been also forced to go for an advice to Chinese doctor. Simply...a skin colour is not important. The knowledge is more important

    I judge a person based on their actions not their skin color. What I will never understand about racist people is how they can generalize an entire race of people. Another thing is the fact that we are all part of the same race...the HUMAN RACE. We are all people. No we don't all...

    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...
