    I'm Human 1st and Foremost!

    -Probably the most frequently asked and annoying question of my life is, "What are you?" and by that is meant my race or ethnicity. My answer of "half-Black,half-White." nearly always brings the ignorant assumption, "So your dad is black?" and my correction of, "Nope. My mother...

    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...

    I don't get it , I mean seriously

    if something wrong or bad is done by a person from a particular race, region or nationality why is the whole race discriminated. Like for example, the 9/11 was done by a few Muslims then why the hell did the people start being rude to all the Muslims in the world?, and this is...

    It is scary to see that we are

    now in 2014, and still people are being treated like it's the 1950s. I despise racism and discrimination. I can't stand it. I wish everybody were accepted and treated the same way, regardless of sex, colour, religion or sexual orientation.

    It's okay if you're Black,

    White, Asian, Spanish, 57 seven years old, 2 years old, pregnant, Christian, or even an Atheist. What's not okay is society.

    Why do Republicans come back,

    over and over, to this kind of thing, to peddling a cocktail of fear mixed with hate? They've got nothing else. They can't sell their right-wing policies as actually working because there's no data to back that up. They can't even sell their policies as logical because, well...

    Tired of so many white people not taking racism

    seriously. Just because you do not experience does not mean other races don't either. You have it so damn good being white, you have no idea what people of colour (all non-whites) go through in this white-dominant world. Regardless of skin tone or facial features or hair texture...

    Even in society today,

    I don't like that the youths of today use the

    word "nigga" like it's of no significance. It's a horrible, derogatory word used to devalue others, not something to just say without consequence.
