    Racism is one of the most pointless and counterproductive infections ever to enter the human consciousness. It derives from the wider desire some have to control other people and assume a position of power over them. Truly a human sickness.

    Don't even get me started! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] I think an anti-swastika tattoo suffices to express my feelings towards racism.
    Very well said Capslock. Racism also includes fear of the unknown.

    It's part of human nature (a childish part IMO) to need to feel superior to others. We base this supposed superiority on a number of superficial things such as skin color, sex, or even where the person is from. Some day we will out grow this need to feel superior or at least control it before it destroys us.

    Slavery is the one prominent thing in the history of the South that I'm ashamed of.

    I experience racism every day... my grandparents, as previously mentioned, are extremely racist and narrow-minded.... negrophobic, homophobic, redneckphobic, everything you can think of that qualifies as different from them, they're against it. Especially my grandmother. Anyway, prejudice is one of my biggest pet peeves. It REALLY pisses me off when somebody slams somebody else just because of something as simple as the color of their skin. This pretty much sums up my feelings: take a lesson from Big & Rich. Love Everybody. Amen-aaa.

    A guy in my church made a movie about racism in South Africa. It was even filmed in South Africa. Anyway, the movie was aired nationally on PBS. It is called Final Solution. He and A.C. Green(yea the basketball player) are friends and AC helped him out. Anyway the movie is great. Here is a link about it Movie

    FlytrapGurl gives me hope that the mentality toward race in the South is changing for the better. I live in Hawaii, where no race is in the majority. People of different races get along pretty well, but it's not perfect. Part of the reason for the relative harmony is that many people are of different ancestries. German, Hawaiian, Chinese, Portugese, Japanese, and Filipino -- and that could be the ancestry of just one person.
