    For years I have been wondering

    why White History month isn't a thing yet so I have taken upon myself to dedicate this month to starting my own to commemorate my ancestors, if blacks can do it then why not us?

    Racism is not okay. I think I got my first

    direct whiff of racism just last night/this morning. Something so stupid turned into something so big. Should I have blocked imbored12 at the beginning? Maybe. Did I waste my time? Perhaps. Will I put up the conversation? Idk yet. But did I defend myself for once? Yes I did, and...

    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...

    The last thing Black History Month is about,

    is fighting over race. Historian Carter Woodson picked February because both the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass are in February. So what it really is about, is a celebration of Freedom, Unity, and Love. In this generation, I see it as a lesson of acceptance...

    I think racism is ignorance.

    A very narrow-minded way of thinking. You limit yourself from meeting really great people. I respect all races and I encourage embracing your own, but the world is so much bigger

    racism is not a joke.

    there is a difference between being funny and being cruel. and what cruel is isolating somebody because of they're arent as "equivalent" as you are with your disgusting self.
