I Hate Racism and Discrimination

    I remember one time when I dated my ex boyfriend

    who was white, I wasn't even allowed to come into his house because I was black. I'm a dark skinned black woman with Nigerian and Sudanese decent. His mom says, "I don't want you marring a black woman and have half niggro babies." I was just shocked and appalled about what she...

    Racism is stupid. How can a skin tone make a

    person less privileged? I strongly disapprove it. Skin tone should never be a barrier. They still have the same blood, bones and nerves as any other people! Spread love everywhere.

    I have some Filipino families

    that are racists. Just earlier I experienced it in the party I am at right now. I ran out of the house as quickly. My grandma saw me ran the heck out of the house at 8:40p.m. I just kept going and started getting even more speed. I had madness inside and out of me. I didn't care...

    I think there was at least some pros to

    segregation in America. For instance, more black people had their own stuff, business, organizations, schools.. The negro baseball league, Black Wall Street etc. Now today, if it aint white it aint right. We should at least try to circulate the money back into our hands & not...

    I hate racism as much

    as the next person, but it can cut both ways, it isn't always whites offending blacks or any other race, it can be the other way round. I respect all and to be honest foreign girls are just as hot as white girls ;)

    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...

    If you have racist and discrimination thoughts.

    You should just keep it to yourselves. That way you won't get all those people who are dealing with racism and discrimination upset and leashing out.

    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...

    Why are these still things in modern society?

    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...

    I had been discriminated last month.

    That person said I was a bimbo Racist Hacker. That person must got me confused with a hacker that might had hack into that person's account to mess with that person's account. I had that person blocked so that person won't discriminate me again.
