    ...because skin colour means nothing,

    it's the person inside that counts and I can't believe that some people are so shallow.

    This was more like stereotyping,

    but I still had to share. One time in class, I don't even know what we were discussing, but my teacher asked the whole class, "How do black people act?" And then people start mimicking the stereotypical "way that black people talk." And then she asks, "How do white people act...

    Why are these still things in modern society?

    Why were they ever things? If you subscribe to creationism, we're all children of God and he loves us all equally. If you subscribe to evolution, we're all still the same species, we come from the same ancestry, just adapted to different climates and terrains. Judging people on...

    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

    Today in class, a white girl says to an Asian

    girl in the middle of the conversation, "go suck a tiny Asian c*ck!" and everyone around her (even the Asian girl) started laughing. I, on the other hand, got really angry and said, "what in the motherf*ck did you say that for?!" But the teacher only heard what I said and not...

    I hate it to an extent.

    Like, if someone says something racist, MAYBE say something mean back, possibly start an argument and move on. But if you're gay or something (not trying to point anyone out, just seeing a lot of this on the news) and want a marriage cake or something and the bakery says no, don...

    Just putting it out there

    that the asterisk many people seem to put on trans (trans*) is unnecessary and othering. By using the asterisk you separate nonbinary from trans when in fact trans is an umbrella term that means anyone who identifies outside of what they were assigned at birth. So because the...

    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...
