    I find it ironic that the people

    who claim to be part of a "superior race" are usually living proof of the opposite! If you're a grown man who dresses up as a ghost and doesn't believe the holocaust happened, the word 'superior' shouldn't be in your vocabulary...and probably isn't. That said, I'm often the...

    I'm seriously sick of discrimination

    and stereotyping. its like just because I'm a black woman I'm supposed to listen to rap and hip hop and not 'white music.' I mean what the hell is white music? I mean my favorite types of music are rock pop alternative rock and R&B. I even like a little bit of country music but...

    I HATE and LOATHE when people say racism no

    longer exists. If you are a white person, to you it never and will never exist not to you. Just because you might not impose discrimination to others, does not mean people do not go through it. Discrimination exists in many forms, and my most resented form is comedy. Making fun...

    Some white americans wonder

    why black americans are so mad. Its because the racism costs everyone way too much. At the end of the day the selfishness and self delusion is destroying us all. http://www.takepart.com/article/2013/12/13/racism-literally-costs-america-too-much-continue

    My EP friend said it was difficult

    Sims’s contributions to science

    and medicine are revered by many, but reviled by those who know of the pain endured by female slaves on whom he operated without anesthesia in the mid-1800s: he was trying to find the cure for a painful post-birth condition known as vesico-vaginal fistula.When Sims needed...

    Ugh I really don't understand how people don't

    understand that cultural appropriation is when you take something from another culture, ***** it of all of it's value and meaning, and use it just to be trendy. How do you not see how mess up that is?! How do you not realize that doing that to a group that is already...

    I'm coming home from work

    as far as I've seen (and this is opinionated)

    once slavery ended (and not saying it should happen again) black people stopped being a community and stopped working together. they lost the drive to do anything. back when schools were segregated black kids actually wanted to go to school, now most of them don't. the boys...

    NO ONE should be treated different

    for something they have no control over. Treat people based on what they're doing. Not what they've done nor what they cannot control.

    Prejudice need to GET SOME LIFE.

    Seriously. Why does the color of our skin have to do with anything? We're all still human. We are all HUMAN BEINGS. The fact that you can't see through that, that you think only good people look just like you, and that you don't care about the feelings you hurt, just proves that...

    it's either you're your mom or you're your dad. you can't have white friends because you don't have blue eyes and you can't have black friends because your hair and eyes don't fit the category. Maybe being in the middle makes me not see color but aren't we all the same race? The...

    I know I've said this many times.

    Why are these still things in modern society?

    Do white Americans genuinely care about police
