I Hate Racism

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 946 People

    But I love jokes ABOUT racism.

    .. you know, jokes that make fun of racists or maybe seem racist on the surface but in actuality only bring light to how ridiculous racism is... Any other Sarah Silverman fans out there? :-)

    such a huge toll on your life. And we wonder why society can't advance. People still dwell on petty things such as racism. It's safe to say it's the biggest sign of ignorance and immaturity in the world.
