    My Thoughts About Race

    Most people accuse racist people of being uneducated and ignorant, I don't agree with that thought. I think it comes 100% from hate >:( people are so full of hate and anger. they have a tendency to single people out and pound on them simply because they are different. they single...

    I'd like to think that

    if such a thing as color didn't exist, no racial statistics would exist, and there would be no groups. My approach to racism is fairly simple. I don't give a **** about skin color or any facial features that might identify someone as a different race from me. Don't all humans...

    I love those inside and outside my race.

    I have many male and female nudist family and friends regardless of race or background. We all get along great in the nude. We have nothing to hide. No pun intended but it is there for the asking.

    The Only Race...

    When we analyze the dynamic behind race, it is only one race: the human race. While others may create dividends within the truth, they are in fact wrong. Our race does not determine our capability, level of success, our position in society. We all are capable of being happy...

    Race has never mattered to me.

    A person is a person no matter their color.

    But not everyone is compatible to live closely together. You have your ways and I have mine. You choose to adhere to your traditions and so do I. Too many people confuse racism with personality conflicts or each other's own conflicting traditional views.

    While I understand the point,

    I actually disagree with the terms racially colorblind. I fully notice all the colors and their uniqueness. To me, they are all positive and not a reason to belittle anyone. I agree with those who implies I like or dislike you because of who you are, not the color.
