    Why the hell do people pretend to act shocked

    When Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was on trial

    for the Boston bombing people called for his immediate execution and labeled him a terroist. When 9 African Americans were executed in a church people ran to defend the Confederate flag.

    I feel I've reached an understanding about

    racism in the U.S. nowadays. I'm starting to feel like America will have a race issue for a long time. And Im wondering if the major factor is how this country's social system began. If you look at some other countries who've had slaves and ended slavering racism appears less of...

    Are they really trying to bring back church

    arson, are they really trying to bring back the 60s aka the "good ole days?' Another church in Charleston was attacked, this time it was set on fire. While at the same time a church in Macon, Georgia.

    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...

    I rarely see EP post black people on EP

    advertisements.Most of the posts are weird anyway.The first time I see a black dude posted,its about crime and murder. No surprise.Will smith has not 1 but 2 posts of crime. Any time I see a person of color on the advertisements its the most negative of all advertisements.

    "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...

    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...

    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...

    Near my apartment in Kawasaki is a silver care

    center which is probably funded by tax. It is used among about 20 to 30 old people to meet, join events, and socialize. There was an old homeless woman perhaps in her 60s who was coming everyday at late night and slept under the roof of the care center. I saw her everyday on...

    I have read about both sides regarding the

    Confederate flag. I still don't know what to think. However, so many of the lyrics in rap music are racial so I am assuming we need to ban those too.

    Experiencing such act hits the heart directly.

    I just want to say none can escape death. And after death bacteria & worms will tear up and make our body vanish into the soil. They won't consider the looks or even the skin colour.
