I Hate Racism and Discrimination

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 69,878 People

    I think there was at least some pros to

    segregation in America. For instance, more black people had their own stuff, business, organizations, schools.. The negro baseball league, Black Wall Street etc. Now today, if it aint white it aint right. We should at least try to circulate the money back into our hands & not...

    "You're White. You don't know how it feels.

    You can never understand what it's like to be racially discriminated against" If I had a dollar for everytime I heard that or the similar I'd be a freaking millionaire. Racism exists in all forms and can come from anyone. Just because I'm White, it doesn't automatically mean I...

    This is a rant about the Ferguson situation.

    If I offend anyone in the process of posting this story, well I could give a crap. Officer Darren Wilson was absolutely wrong for shooting Mike Brown, but not because he was white and the victim was black. Come on, people! This is 2014, not 1965. I know this is hard for some...

    Please stop the madness!

    Just because I'm a dark skinned black woman does not mean that I'm ugly have a bad attitude aggressive or anything like that! I like pop music more than hip hop and rap, even thought it's my second favorite music genre. I get criticized for that too. I don't judge others either...

    Let'S Be Fair.

    Discrimination is not helping, why do people enjoy when they discriminate people because it is funny? How about the feeling of the person they criticize? Well a lot of Lesbians, Gays, Bi-sexuals, and also the transgenders had been criticize. I'm proud to say that I'm a lesbian...

    Why are these still things in modern society?

    I had been discriminated last month.

    That person said I was a bimbo Racist Hacker. That person must got me confused with a hacker that might had hack into that person's account to mess with that person's account. I had that person blocked so that person won't discriminate me again.

    If you have racist and discrimination thoughts.

    You should just keep it to yourselves. That way you won't get all those people who are dealing with racism and discrimination upset and leashing out.

    as the next person, but it can cut both ways, it isn't always whites offending blacks or any other race, it can be the other way round. I respect all and to be honest foreign girls are just as hot as white girls ;)
