Im in an interracial relationship and I've overheard and directly received so much negativity and hatefulness- It makes no sense to me. Why should it matter what color you are if you love someone? That's just my opinion though.
Because some people are narrow minded and think one race is different from another.
Thank you :)
Well...white mother, black father...even in San Francisco, in the early 60s there were places we couldn't go as a family; it wasn't legally forbidden, but it was more trouble than worth. My parents are both originally from Louisiana, met in college in New York, where they married, because they legally couldn't in Louisiana. They moved to California a couple of years later, where I was born, and later, my siblings. When we'd go down South to visit the relatives, there were places we legally could not go as a family, and places my father and I couldn't go at all.
I work at an excavation company - there is a staggering amount of thinly veiled racism still prevalent in the New England blue collar community, though people tend to keep it to themselves unless provoked.<br />
Being a blond-haired, blue-eyed heterosexual white male, people with this mental affliction tend to assume I am likely to agree with their prejudices. Its an odd place to be in when your boss asks you how you feel about the n***** in the white house with a conspiratorial grin.
Naturally it is possible for white people to be the target of racism. However, I've never personally experienced that and doubt that its prevalent here in the northeastern united states. @Fish - Maori? You've got some far-reaching code in your genes.
Numerous time in my working life I was discriminated against in favor of "minorities" who got hired, promoted, and paid more because of anti-white racist policies of government and industry. Over 40 years the anti-white racism probably cost me more than a million dollars. And its gotten worse. The Odumbo regime is the most racist government in my lifetime.
I was called a honky in school once, i hit the kid and we later got on.<br />
In college I was called white trash which upset me.<br />
As a Christian my faith and my God are often mocked which annoys me.
A lot of people don't really like my kind of lizard so they usually try to grab me by my tail to make me drop it.
you should let me move in
yeah those dirty cane toads need to remember their place
