    "No one is born hating another person

    because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite." -Nelson Mandela

    Ok so I was browsing through my instagram,

    and one guy I was following, a black dude, one of those "enlightened, deep" kind of black guys? Anyway, most of his picture posts were on point as far as the damage done to us, and us getting back to our roots as a people, strengthening our black relationships and families...

    Zero tolerance. If you're racist you're ignorant

    and honestly don't deserve to live in this world.

    My mom and her boyfriend are very offensive.

    My mother's the type of woman who says she accepts any and everyone but on just the flip of a dime she'll call someone something horrible or just make a terrible judgment about them. Somewhere along the line something happened that made me look at it differently.

    Look, Mommy! ...Black people!!

    I'll share a funny story because some of you may appreciate it. Despite the fact that we're Unitarian, we sent my son to a private Christian grammar school because it was, academically, the best school in our area. The school was popular among Christian blacks in our area so the...

    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...

    This is a rant about the Ferguson situation.

    If I offend anyone in the process of posting this story, well I could give a crap. Officer Darren Wilson was absolutely wrong for shooting Mike Brown, but not because he was white and the victim was black. Come on, people! This is 2014, not 1965. I know this is hard for some...

    White people were also slaves,

    and were cheaper to purchase than black slaves. I wish this was more widely known. An example would be in Britain, where white slaves were sold. There were also black slave masters, who used their own people as slaves. I do understand I benefit from society as a white person...

    that everyone in this world could see that no matter what color,race,gender, etc. a person is , it doesn't matter who you love or what you look like, if you took an x-Ray of our bodies we are all the same. We are the same skin and bones. We are all HUMAN.

    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...
