    This wasn't necessarily any racism

    or discrimination really, but it kinda bugged me so I'm going to share it. I don't have health insurance so to get my birth control pills I have to go to a planned parenthood clinic. I saw a sign that was specifically for Hispanic women offering free babysitting services and...

    There is being against racism,

    but then there is trying so hard to be racist you are ashamed of your skin color. I've seen many instances of white guilt and it is truly pathetic. One should never feel guilt over their skin color, something they had no part of deciding. From women pretending to be black to...

    I hate how nonchalant people can be about the

    confederate flag. I personally think that it should not have been outlawed, it is a form of nonverbal free speech after all. but when I tell people I don't like the flag they delve into their vast historical archive they call a brain and say "the civil war wasn't about slavery...

    Anyone hear about the story in the news

    where the black girl was pulled over for not signalling? She was told to get out the car, the cop beat the crap out of her and supposedly broke her arm. She was hauled off to jail for resisting arrest, and was dead a few days later. The bullsh*t story the cops are making for...

    Has anyone seen the movie

    that MTV called "White People" it talks about white privilege and it includes white people in the conversation. It's a very interesting perspective and while on the surface it seems like an incredibly ignorant movie, but when you start watching it you immediately get the true...

    Is anybody else sick of other white people

    I find myself struggling some times.

    I know I am not racist. I know that there are a lot of people who suffer and hurt daily because racism and discrimination still exist. What I struggle with is people who are so tired and so hurt that they see me as a poster child for being racist for MY pigmentation. I've been...

    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...

    Regarding discrimination against sexual

    orientation: is there even a point? Boys. Girls. HUMANS should be attracted to HUMANS. Let's not give a crap about gender. Go after someone because you are attracted to them and their character.

    We can't hate people

    who hate without becoming one of them. But we can and must voice disapproval with their warped ideas.

    Caucasian people only make up a small % of the

    I watched 12 Years of Slavery.

    ... broke me down to tears when Patsey was getting whipped. The color barrier was as thick as black fog... couldn't see an inch infront. It has thinned out over the years... but has not yet ceased to exist. I love all people though, it's just some I won't understand.

    Sandra Bland was not alive in her mugshot.

    When you are arrested, you are pictured in the clothes you are arrested in, not in prison clothes. When they take your picture, you are told not to tilt your head or lean against the wall. There is a clear shadow where her head touches the background, most likely the floor. Her...

    What's wrong with someone's skin color?

    Oh they're brown, guess that means they aren't allowed to have regular jobs and the same respect as a white person. As a white person, I sometimes get more "respect" from certain authorities, unlike some of my dark skinned classmates. And it's disgusting. I mean really? Even the...

    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...
