    I can't stand it. I'm white

    and I have a few black friends and there like the greatest people I've ever met. I truly don't understand how people can be so ignorant and racist... like my parents. Mostly my dad is racist, although my mom might be a little bit. One day I asked my dad if he would drive me to...

    I HATE and LOATHE when people say racism no

    longer exists. If you are a white person, to you it never and will never exist not to you. Just because you might not impose discrimination to others, does not mean people do not go through it. Discrimination exists in many forms, and my most resented form is comedy. Making fun...

    I used to hate racism

    and discrimination now I honestly just pity the fools (mr T voice ) when you look you'll see it just for what it is, an attempt to feel better about yourself and your insecurities by making someone else feel inferior.

    I never understood racism.

    .. why hate someone because of the color of their skin? Why hate someone because of their ethnicity? Why hate someone for something that they can't control? Some people hate other races because someone from a certain race hurt them in some way... But why hate a whole group...

    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...

    How is Racial Discrimination different from

    Discrimination against homosexuality? There is no difference.. discrimination isn't just about race, but instead it's more so about a group of people that are different.. People are who they are, they don't deserve to be teased, taunted, or exiled for that.. Yes I understand...

    The dark side of me- Honestly discrimination

    made me and my older sister distant. I'm black and my older sister is about as white as someone who isn't can be (no one can tell she's not) due to different fathers. Our family on my mothers side favoured her because of this. I literally hated her, sibling rivalry I suppose...

    this group is actually racist.. It doesn't show in the story itself, but it is very clear in a reply they gave to a comment. The level of cognitive dissonance is horrifically astounding, or astoundingly horrific. :/ I'm not sure what limits are set, but I wonder if it goes...

    I hate racists that assume that,

    because they are the subject of most racism, aren't considered racist. Also, racial or gender diversity shouldn't be something congratulated like I have seen, it should be a given. You shouldn't have to look for these things. Companies like Disney shouldn't be criticized for the...

    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.

    We are all humans. We all have feelings. Doesn't matter your color, your religion or your sexuality. We are all different and that's what makes us special <3

    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 have and think I always will be exposed to

    racist comments...being half Asian makes me sometimes loathe my ethnic half when others tell me I shouldn't...the real problem is the more hurtful, negative comments seem to make a bigger impact on us rather than the supportive ones.

    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.
