Yeah, racism sucks. Especially if you're on the receiving end. It can also be demoralizing for the individuals who exact it. I'm only half white and I have received a fair amount of shit growin up especially from my dad's side of the family. It's true, it doesn't just come from the white folk, also. In the end you can't make people like you. It's an evolution you gotta roll with. People in general are dicks and if it's not race, they'll find something else to hate you about. I hate all people and races equally. On the other hand, I enjoy most races, cultures and traditions. I find them interesting. Most of them have something to contribute.

Louis CK had something funny to say about race.

say it back and YOUR the racist.

I also think its funny how we have the MOBO awards, BET TV and Black history month.

What if we had the WOBO awards, Wet TV or white history month.
I personally think there would be an outcry from all White/Blacks/Asians saying its racist to have these things.

I've also applied for jobs in the past that I was turned down for and I quote this 'As the advertisement stated the position is only open to people from the ASIAN community'.
what so a white or black man/women can't plant a fucking flower bed or rose bush.


If you ask me, I don't have time to worry about race, EVER-ONES a cunt until proven otherwise.
Well if you remember (or know at all) the N word was used for a extremely long time as I guess it is ingrained in African american mentality. The n word was commonly used by poor whites in the south.

I thnk we do have WET TV, but I don't think that's what you're thinking of...

Have you ever felt so at one with the world, with the universe, with everything that is, that you were overcome with love?

That is reality. That is the truth. What we make of it is up to us.

What are you on about.
Everyone know's it was a slur used by whites in south American and most of the world for that matter.
How dumb do you think I am.

Well one of your thoughts before hand was "It seems to be ok for black people to call each other N***er" and I was just trying to clarify and in no way to demean your level of intelligence .

maybe I could have worded it a bit different, but I thought people would know what I was getting at.

It being ingrained in the African American mentality, is no excuse. Where I live, it is used as a positive term (such as buddy or friend) not only for any other African American, but even as a term for friends of other races. The word is also ingrained at least as deeply in the European American (? I can never figure out what the politically correct term is) mentality as it is the African American one. The problem is that it is either positive or negative depending on the race of the person who uses it, which is as racist as the terms original usage.
