I Hate Racism and Discrimination

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 60,210 People

    As a black man, I've been discriminated against

    and negatively stereotyped for as long as I can remember. What really bothers me is what society has done to the issue of race and stereotypes. As a child, I was picked on for being black, but "acting white". This was simply because I spoke proper English and was raised in the...

    My Mom......

    My mom is very racist against people of different color and language. I remember we were at a shopping center one day last year for Christmas, and this Spanish speaking woman came up to us begging us to give her a ride home. She explained that she had 3 children at home and she...

    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 can't we all just accept one another

    for exactly what we all are, humans. Instead of judgements and persuasions over religion/race/sex. This world is becoming a very sad place, quite quickly

    I never have considered myself

    as a racist, I treat everyone with respect and ask for the same in return. I also believe you live your life and I will live mine. I have never intentionally hurt anyone. I had something happen to me yesterday that has tested my beliefs.

    Sometimes we forget how lucky we still are

    if we compare to aboriginal land owners. Australians (White Australians of course) treat aboriginal not better than any other Non white. The difference is the lack of compassion or humanity toward this race. By the end of the decade I doubt would be one left alive in the...

    bear. For example, if someone says something weird and another person replies "hahah that's so GAY" then I will run up to them and say "don't use gay like that. It's not an insult". And those jokes about girls, don't get me started. "You throw like a girl". "You scream like a...

    So, on a YouTube video about Soulja Boy,

    I saw a comment chain that went something like this: Person A: Why does he wear loose clothes like that? Does he think it's attractive or something? And why are there only black people in this video? Person B: It is not attractive. He's ghetto. Person A: Oh, he is SO ghetto...

    between races, but there is no excuse to treat someone badly just because they're different from you. People of other races than me are just as beautiful as white people, and vice versa.
