I Hate Racism and Discrimination

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 63,374 People

    I can't stand it. I'm white

    and I have a few black friends and there like the greatest people I've ever met. I truly don't understand how people can be so ignorant and racist... like my parents. Mostly my dad is racist, although my mom might be a little bit. One day I asked my dad if he would drive me to...

    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!

    "No one is born hating another person

    because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite." -Nelson Mandela

    Colorblind Race seems to be a hot topic today

    in the USA, but I want to say something on the topic that I have not heard said anywhere except in a literature class in college four to six years ago. I live in a part of the country where most of the people I see at work and in my community applaud the grand jury's decision...

    White people: you are no true friend of a

    person of colour if you will not recognize your white privilege. Friends do not disrespect friends like that. That is all.

    my feelings. I get it. You have an opinion. But dont try to impose your views on me. I have had people tell me they hate Islam. If you want to read these ridiculous statements, read the comments on my staus on 'I am a muslim'

    There is a whole spectrum of prejudice out

    Racism and Discrimination are forms of hatred.

    Instead of "hating" them, (compounding the problem), understanding and overcoming their existence and effects is a much better use of energy than adding more hatred to our world... in my humble opinion.

    I can't stand the notion of race.

    We are ALL Humans! I was born in South Korea and adopted by a white family in America when I was 2 months old. I've never experienced blatant, cruel racism; however, by simply appearing Asian, many doubt that I have lived here my whole life. I'm constantly asked about my...

    Its an old struggle,

    yet shamefully, it still needs to be fought. I hope everyone will consider signing up here, as - while it may seem tokenistic - it all helps to send out a signal to those who still resort to treating people on the basis of outdated and/or fortuitous categories.

    As a child, I had been discriminated
