    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...

    There is a report Michelle Duggar had a gay man

    fired from her family's TLC show for being gay. I do not know if it is true gossip or false gossip. If it is, my question is where was her angst all that time he was with the crew? It is proof that she was taught to hate gays and that it's not a God thing. She was fine with him...

    The fact that I have to defend trans people

    like Caitlyn, formally know as Bruce Jenner, against people within the black community. We as black people already know how bad discrimination hurts, so why so some of us feel that it's ok to spread it everywhere else.

    Discrimination is in the own race

    as well. It started when I was in elementary school. "You're daughter is beautiful!" They would always tell my mother, in which she would tell me later on and I would have the biggest smile on my face. I never had a self-image problem until 5th grade. I was playing in the...

    I was about to comment on a comment

    that said white people are the superior race and EP closed on me. It was like EP was the bro that holds you back from a bar fight saying, "He isn't worth it man! Don't feed the troll!"

    "You're White. You don't know how it feels.

    You can never understand what it's like to be racially discriminated against" If I had a dollar for everytime I heard that or the similar I'd be a freaking millionaire. Racism exists in all forms and can come from anyone. Just because I'm White, it doesn't automatically mean I...

    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...

    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...

    Even though racism and discrimination exists

    still exists today that's so 1960s and people should stop with the race cards and just accept the world of diversity. why spend so much energy hating those you don't even know just by the color of their skin, the way they dress, or their religion? It's a complete waste of time...

    What upsets me are the following: When white
