    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 see you have totally misunderstood what I

    Hating someone for what they are,

    and not seeing them for who they are is one of the most ignorant and illogical things that a human being can do. Besides, if everyone in the choir sang the same note, we'd never have harmony.

    It boggles my mind that people would choose

    such an insignificant and minor variation between us to focus on. I understand that it is easy to pick race because it is so physically present. I also understand that unlike other things that are also different, race stays with a group of others whereas other characteristics...

    Look, Mommy! ...Black people!!

    We are all humans and god creation.

    We shouldn't hate each other just because we are black,w hite, women, old, or have different nationalities. It only matters what you do. What you are deep inside is important not outside

    If you're racist, I won't talk to you.

    Its that simple. I don't understand why some people think one race is better than the other. It just doesn't make sense to me. We're all equal so get over your self and move on.

    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...
