Do you think that people make such a big deal about it or do people ignore it?
Is it really that bad?
It's up to you....
Give you opinion then.
And to make it a little bit more interesting...

I don't care for racism but people have a right to voice their oppinion.

*Watches AMV*

And? That doesn't swing my oppinion, it just said I could be a bit of a racist which is possible. I fail to see the point of it.

It should be more or less "Your thoughts on racism"...mind you; you don't have to use "thoughts". Try speculation, theorization, reflection, or just a mild contemplation. Each to his own...

I think were all a little bit racist at heart. We all have our discriminations or prejudices against someone/something. More or less i think half the time people are joking about it anyway. Then you have the land of in-breed people and rednecks, aka the south. Thats just pushing it a little too far.

Now if your still asking the queston, "whats my reaction to racism". It depends if your 'seeing' it happen. Or having it done to yourself. I find it kind of funny myself in any reguard.

Besides we all need a little racism, keeps you on your toes.

well, just to get this topic off the ground, how about this:

my thoughts on racism is that there is no stopping it, but I don't think it is by any stretch of the imagination, right. i've seen what racism can do, especially when little kids grow up around it. also, i think racism is born from the environment that you live in. even if a kid doesn't know why, they may hate a certian people just because a relative or close friend does. people just need to be more accepting, and if for some reason, they just HAVE to be racist, the least they can do is just not be openly spiteful.

so...um....I've said my piece.

Racism is fine with me as long as it doesn't hurt anyone.
Like, I'm not talking about calling someone a hurtful name behind their back and it being okay, I'm talking about like, racist jokes. Those don't bother me unless it's total nonsence.

Racism is never going to go away.
Everyone is always going to assume things about people by what they look like, dress like, or act like. It's been happening for so long that most of us don't realize we're even doing it.

My thoughts?
I think it's okay in moderation.
But definatly not okay to hurt someone.

For me, I hate racism with a passion. I know it cannot be stopped but hell, that doesn't stop me from loathing it. <3

I'm alright when me and my friends make racist jokes at one another, but I despise it when random people call me a wetback just because they are thick-headed to believe I chose to arrive brown-skinned. =/

I don't believe racism is alright in any circumstances. Period. Hate is just what insecure and foolish people do.

Oh, and the video is funny as hell. <3 <3

[existentialist crap]
Racism is all about the difficulties in our ability to know and empathize for the other. We cling to it because it helps us define ourselves in an exisence that lacks meaning, but in modern socieity, we believe we should not exemplify it. This is the essense of the racist conflict.
[/existentialist crap]

This is an interesting article on the Granfalloon, which may be somewhat relevant here.

So, Bluewish, are you saying any discrimination is bad?

How 'bout we slap prejudice and stereotyping into that queston. Because a part of racism derives from discrimination, prejudice, stereotyping. And i will bet the life of my first born here and say that you have done all three of these fun activities. Theres no way around it, so sit back and enjoy it.
