Oh yeah, I know a guy who was blatantly racist towards me. I don't feel like repeating what he said right now. =_=

People have also been racist towards my mom when they thought she was Mexican (she's a lot lighter than me.)

And yes, I care. I thought we'd be over this shit after all these years.

Because people make threads like these. Racism still exists. Stop talking about it and eventually everyone will forget what it is. Stupid thread. Close it.

Racism will continue to exist to so long as humanity hold on to their sense of individuality.

Yes, racism still and will always exist. I've been the target of racism, but I try to laugh at it. Even I am racist at times (to a limit though).
I'm half Arabic and half Filipino. Gawd -_- The terrorist jokes I get is infinity!
People will always be racist. You can either fight an impossible crowd, or just laugh at the fact.
Of course we're talking about racism-to-degree here.

There's racism, and then there's racism. If that makes any sense?


i think everybody is racist in their own way.i dont see anything wrong with it until people start making their racism painfully obvious


This pretty much ^^

To be honest, I live in a very small town in northern England (far away from London) which isn't very diverse at all.

But yes racism does still exist, racism will never end. Racism is everywhere, to everyone. It is human nature to hate on those which are different.

Yes I get alot of shit from American trolls on the internet, and they always bring the fact I'm British into it. Usually something ridiculous about my teeth, or crumpets or something stupid like that.

The point is no matter what race you are, you will be insulted because of that race one day. Because when people get down to it, and they have nothing else to say in an argument, they'll pick the one thing they think affects everyone. Racism.

theres racism all over...Yeah I get hurt a little bit but I ignore it. They're enjoying their lives so I might as well enjoy mine. Only reason why they make racist comments in the first place is to make themselves feel better by putting other people down.

Some quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt

Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.


No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

do you think racism is still out there?
Do I think? I know. Hell yes it is.

has some one been racist towards you?
I'm a black woman. Of course. I get the added helping of sexism in addition to the racism. It can be big issues to daily microaggressions for DARING to be black in a society where black is soooo bad. Everything that I do is politicized.

do you care if people are racist?
Absolutely. It means that they're making life harder for someone else simply because they have a different skintone. It means that they're trying to deny the humanity of another person because of the color of their skin.

it really does not matter to me. mostly Racism is what you are taught growing up anyway. its pure ignorence to me. and ignorence (in my oppinion) is nothing to get angry about. I believe that as long as humans have free will there will always be hate as well as love in this world. Its not a good thing but it surely seems to be fact.

Show someone who is 100% rooted in their feelings all the facts in the world to prove otherwise. The odds of them changing their mind is pretty slim. I get racism everyday. The "n-word" is common place where I live it seems. I dont mind at all though. Usualy I just laugh and go on about what I was doing before Mr/Mrs Ignorence came into my life. I smile and move on. In my mind its nothing worthy of upset feelings or anger. Angry words are empty words. The only words that matter to me are words of love and respect.

My Grandmother was Japanese and I don't really look Asian myself because the genes weren't really passed down to me because she was the only fully Asian person in the family. Anyway was having a chat with this girl about it and she said "Oh thats why your skin is sort of yellowish and you eat loads of fish." I pardoned the comment as utter stupidity -__-

I eat fish because I fucking like it, not because of my heritage! Bitch.
