    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 find myself struggling some times.

    I know I am not racist. I know that there are a lot of people who suffer and hurt daily because racism and discrimination still exist. What I struggle with is people who are so tired and so hurt that they see me as a poster child for being racist for MY pigmentation. I've been...

    It's just so funny when a girl tells me " I'm

    not racist, I just have a preference for white guys." So you are telling me, preference based on race or ethnicity is not by definition discriminative? You girls are good...

    I watched 12 Years of Slavery.

    ... broke me down to tears when Patsey was getting whipped. The color barrier was as thick as black fog... couldn't see an inch infront. It has thinned out over the years... but has not yet ceased to exist. I love all people though, it's just some I won't understand.

    Look, Mommy! ...Black people!!

    I'll share a funny story because some of you may appreciate it. Despite the fact that we're Unitarian, we sent my son to a private Christian grammar school because it was, academically, the best school in our area. The school was popular among Christian blacks in our area so the...

    This wasn't necessarily any racism

    I'm coming home from work

    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...

    fyi: riots are what happen

    when a sports team wins/loses and fans get out of control. When a racist-capitilistic-oppressive police force murders unarmed citizens and the community reacts, it is an UPRISING. Just a little vocabulary/branding, because, words matter <3

    that said white people are the superior race and EP closed on me. It was like EP was the bro that holds you back from a bar fight saying, "He isn't worth it man! Don't feed the troll!"

    old boy who believes he should be able to date black girls, but would not date a white girl who has been with a black man. I'm so confused. So very confused.

    This is a rant about the Ferguson situation.

    If I offend anyone in the process of posting this story, well I could give a crap. Officer Darren Wilson was absolutely wrong for shooting Mike Brown, but not because he was white and the victim was black. Come on, people! This is 2014, not 1965. I know this is hard for some...

    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...

    There is being against racism,

    but then there is trying so hard to be racist you are ashamed of your skin color. I've seen many instances of white guilt and it is truly pathetic. One should never feel guilt over their skin color, something they had no part of deciding. From women pretending to be black to...

    Regarding discrimination against sexual

    orientation: is there even a point? Boys. Girls. HUMANS should be attracted to HUMANS. Let's not give a crap about gender. Go after someone because you are attracted to them and their character.
