Race and Ethnicism

Post  0001 on 1/23/2010, 22:54

This is a real problem still rampant today. People are so very cought up in the notion of race and difference, and this card is in my opinion too often played, for good and for bad. I believe we are all one people, human, and that color shouldn't matter, either for good or bad.

It's a two way street. Yes, we should stop being racist torwards black people, but on the flip side, they shouldn't be willing to blame everything on the white man. Hurricane Katrina, anyone? Rolling Eyes

Yes exactly, it does go two ways. And here's another one: 'Ol Obamaboy, everyone praised that race truly didn't matter since a Black-man got elected president. Well if race truly didn't matter, then why was the color of his skin even mentioned, shouldn't his credentials be the focus?

Hey hey hey, I AGREE with you alright, and I had the same idea for a long time as well. The fact that you didn't repost it is your fault. tongue

Alright, my thing on race & ethnicism is this... To really solve this problem (or maybe they shoulda just thought about this right away...) why dont we just forget the color differences, the facial differences, just differences, & just go by man or woman? Not, black, asian, caucasian, indian, etc... It should just be MAN or WOMAN. Cause we are really all the same. We all have the same blood. & thats all that should really matter.
I honestly hate the fact that some people base people on their skin color, their facial features, their culture.
People should only go by the one person's personality traits.

EXACTLY! We are all one people! There really should not be any refference to race. It does not matter as you say, at all! What I'm curious is, why does it seem to matter so much to anyone? Are we not advanced enough to just look at ourselves as what we are, human?

Yeah I guess not... Well at least I'm not totally powerless, within this organization, and in the language we speak, there is never any refference to race at all, but only to people. Wink

Well you know why they mention race for Obama, Abl? Our country was racist for about 100 years and there will always be racist people out there. So you cannot really comprehend this. Abl, to show racism on another level a few southern preachers prayed Obama die so this is not just about him but that's real racism. DIE STUPID SOUTHERN MINISTERS WHO prayed this way.

How can I not comprehend this?? I comprehend this very well. I did not say where the problem came from, I'm saying it's stupid and we need to change it.

Any person who prays for someone to die will end up without God unless they repent. I am saying that anyone that prays to try to make some die is at fault from evil.

I have trouble with how I want to phrase something sometimes and you shouldn't rub it in that's acting against God's will of kindness.

@Crinkle: Yes, but please try to double check your posts, I mean often times you have a REALLY good point to get across, but a lot of the meaning gets lost in translation. Wink

But it's true, I HIGHLY value Crinkle, he is literally one of my right hand guys. I'd rather help him to improve, and honey attracts more flies then vinager. Wink
