    America, you suck. You are the devil in

    Listen, Beyaaatch

    I ******* HATE GENDER STEREOTYPES. It bothers me when I hear girls whine about how they "hate all women" because all we do is "sit around & gossip". Apparently boys make better friends than us because of this. Well, listen beyaatch. I had to live all alone on my own when I was...

    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...

    A Touchy Subject On "Black Racism"

    Now, I know this might be a tough and touchy subject for many, but I want to talk about it anyway, and I was inspired to do so after seeing the report on a morning show today about Brad Paisley's song (duetted with LL Cool J. I don't really know what part LL had in the song cuz...

    I live in an area (that isn't NYC)

    that was greatly affected by 9/11. Since then, the area has been very discriminate towards Muslims. Where I work is in the middle of that hate. I heard one rude customer get mad at a Muslim customer and call her a towel head. I walked up to the rude woman and said " Excuse me ma...

    My Mom......

    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...

    I am 14 and my father isn't racist

    but when i told him that i was into this one guy and he met him my father was very cold. Later that night I asked him why he was so rude to my friend/unofficial boyfriend and he said, "Why can't you find a nice white guy." This really hurt me..

    I find people who are racist just

    as crazy as the people who say, "That's okay." Some people* just think it's an opinion and that it's harmless. Very likely they haven't experienced it, nor their race. *Probably old white people, let's be honest.

    Thank goodness for the judge

    who ruled the ban on gay marriage in Kentucky unconstitutional. In the backwoods Kentucky county I live in I thought hell would freeze over before gay marriage was legal. It never would be if it was up to voters. A huge step was taken today.
