    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!

    I've experienced racism.

    I'm a black woman and I've been called the "N word" by one of my friends who happened to be a white male. I heard the hate in his voice as he said it. I never talked to him again after that. I shut him out of my life. I don't tolerate disrespect and I especially don't tolerate...

    We all may be different shades of color

    and believe in different things. In fact we might be 100 percent opposite. But underneath is all, we all bleed out RED.

    My Mom......

    My mom is very racist against people of different color and language. I remember we were at a shopping center one day last year for Christmas, and this Spanish speaking woman came up to us begging us to give her a ride home. She explained that she had 3 children at home and she...

    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...

    It's okay if you're Black,

    White, Asian, Spanish, 57 seven years old, 2 years old, pregnant, Christian, or even an Atheist. What's not okay is society.

    To be honest, I just don't "get it".

    Perhaps it is generational, or maybe passed down from parents to children. I'd like to believe that as a society, we are improving every year.......but like most bad thngs, it will never go away completely.

    What's up with those people

    who question a person who feels they've been discriminated against? If they say I'm hurt because someone brought up a negativity then that's it. What's it to question? That's like getting cut and someone asking if your sure it hurts.
