    "Land of the free and the home of the brave",

    does this line ring a bell. Its the last line of our nation's anthem and our country's motto. Do you believe it cause i sure dont. They say that we have freedom but we still live with plenty of restrictions and limitations. A person that appears to be any other race than white...

    Yep, Experienced It Many, Many Times.

    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...

    Hate Is An Understatement.

    Alright. I HATE having to do this, because you know what they say - 'don't **** where you eat!'. I really don't want to spoil my EP experience for the sake of being angry, but I. Bloody. Well. Am. I'm unbelievably, intolerably (yes, I said it!), endlessly pissed off. I'm NOT...

    Yeah But Where?!

    I have been around since the 70s and have always lived in "new south" but I didn't know how bad discrimination could get until I went to visit NORTHERN cities. I know discrimination CAN get worse than what I saw, but I, of course, wouldn't want it to. See the south was forced...

    Free Your Mind....

    I think most people that know me, are familiar with where I stand on these issues, but I am more than happy to re-iterate. I abhor Racism, Homophobia, Bigotry, ageism, Sexism and Intolerance in general. I have covered this subject on previous occasions, but some things bear...

    Racism

    I guess I'm on a racism kick today, but I don't know why. All different colors of people can be prejudiced against others. Not just white people, but black, brown, yellow. I grew up in a city and I know this for a fact. It was every ethnicity against practically every other...

    It isn't fair. People don't choose how they're

    born, which is nothing wrong no matter who they are, and so you racist, or sexist or in-tolerating person in general, you could have been born black, or Chinese, or Pakistan, or any other race you make fun of. And you. Mr. And Ms. Sexist, you could have been born as the opposite...

    My boyfriend Taylor and I have been dating

    for over a month and I am very happy with him. He makes me smile, laugh, and special all the time. The only thing about our relationship that bothers me is that the way people look at us. He's white and I'm African American. Sometimes people stare us like we don't belong...

    Acceptance

    We're all different, we're all individuals, treat every stranger as a potential friend. I believe noone is superior to anyone else, it's just a misguided state of mind.

    I just can't comprehend hate.

    why would you have any feeling at all toward someone for being different, except maybe intrigue... Worry about yourself. nobody's lifestyle involves you but your own. if you're comfortable with yourself how could you possibly harness hate at all?

    I cant really say I hate people that are racist, sexist or intolerance about certain things. But I think hating people who hate stuff about me is not solving anything. But I do hope one day we can get past all this trivial things and really evolve into a great society.
