I Hate Racism and Discrimination

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 35,891 People

    No one is born racist,

    it's built into people by their surroundings/upbringing/media & their own naïveté. It's a shame that in 2014 this is still a regular thing that so many people have to put up with.

    Lately on things like Vine

    When A Southern State Makes Minority Voters Wait Hours To Vote You Still Need A Voting Rights Act

    I don't understand why some people think it is

    perfectly normal and okay for a school, or any other organization to have only white people, but consider it biased and wrong for another school or organization to have only black people (or other races).

    Some people treat other humans like they're

    aliens just because of their race. Racism is very stupid to me. I will never understand racist people. Are they racist to people because people's skin color isn't their favorite color or something? We are all human. We have blue blood on the inside.
