    The one thing I know is

    that I don’t know what it it’s like to be a young black man who is confronted by a white police officer pointing a gun. I don’t know the fear, the humiliation, the rage that a young black person must feel when this happens, especially when he doesn’t believe he has done...

    In my country we pride ourselves

    I am black, my husband is white,

    and our kids are biracial. I am tired of people's comments, dirty looks, and opinions. At the end of the day, I love my family and wouldn't trade them for anything!

    Even in society today,

    A Touchy Subject On "Black Racism"

    It is scary to see that we are

    now in 2014, and still people are being treated like it's the 1950s. I despise racism and discrimination. I can't stand it. I wish everybody were accepted and treated the same way, regardless of sex, colour, religion or sexual orientation.

    I've been holding this in

    for a long time but, there is no point of racism at all. If you know that they haven't created their own skin, then why judge them just because of that. No race is perfect so if one race thinks they are dominant.... well you're not at all. You're just like everyone else and...

    Apart from anything else, I don't like people who think they're better than anyone else. People need to recognize that all of us are just the same- we're all folks trying to get through life the best way we can.

    This should also count towards ignorant people

    I don't like that the youths of today use the

    word "nigga" like it's of no significance. It's a horrible, derogatory word used to devalue others, not something to just say without consequence.

    seriously. Just because you do not experience does not mean other races don't either. You have it so damn good being white, you have no idea what people of colour (all non-whites) go through in this white-dominant world. Regardless of skin tone or facial features or hair texture...
