    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...

    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...

    "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...

    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...

    Why are these still things in modern society?

    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
