Racism Quotes and Sayings - Page 4
Props to all the great American comedians like Chris Rock and Carlos Mencia who use humor to help us lower the boundaries between us. It seems to me that the problem is we’re not great at finding socially acceptable ways to acknowledge and appreciate our differences. We could all probably do better to bring along any small minded people among us who really still hold on to a racist view of the world.

There is a world of difference between racism & prejudice. IE: one can look at a young man with a hoodie on and prejudge that the young man is a thug, that’s prejudice. To judge a man as a thug because of his skin color is racist.
I can understand prejudice to a person the way they walk/dress etc (walk like a thug, dress like a thug, chances are, you are a thug), however, to judge a person solely on their skin color is, at best, stupid. And at worst, poisonous.

In fact, the only real racism I have encountered, has been by fellow white skin people because I’m English and they have been French, and that does not mean I dislike every French person because of it. It just emphasizes my point.

Racism is something you learn not something you are born with.
I wish for a world were the only time people judge by race is during a track meet.
I think what all you guys are asking for is for one culture. In order for that to happen we need to all be in one place. That will never happen in order for that to happen we need to agree with everyone’s culture and to see past taboos which is difficult to do for us. Racism will be around forever and has been around forever.
Racism is hatred! There is no place for either in our communities! We all bleed one color…RED! We all cry the same…with a tear! We all need each other… For support, for acceptance, for help! Racism must end!!!!
The silly thing is that the color of one’s skin is simply evolution’s answer for dealing with different rates of exposure to the sun … How ignorant is it then to judge a person on that?
Racism; the coined term for the hatred of a color. Pathetic.
Everyone’s a racist except the blind.
The racist one…usually the jealous one.

I’m not trying to be mean but here are somethings that I have found out:
Caucasian talk about is eating fried chicken and kool aid, and I am very sorry to say, they eat the same things.
A lot of people called the black race ugly. If you look now at the African women, they have defined face structure, and very dark skin, just like their ancestors. The most beautiful skin I’ve every seen. Some are models, and they are some of the most beautiful women that I have ever seen. I mean, it comes to the point where a lot of people want to look like them!
Why do they have a Caucasian person running the NAACP?
And why is that when a black man comes into office, cleans everything up for America, and still is under fire for doing the things that he is supposed to do? And Bush, the reason for this mess, was not treated like that?
Just some food for thought. Go ahead, give me as much thumbs down as you want, because I just don’t care anymore.
The way I look at it most people are set in their ways and won’t change their minds about not liking another race. We all learn from our parents and the others around us.
Person’s color of skin depends upon the country in which he lives. Because every country has different weather, different atmosphere.
It is wise to generalize a group of people based on culture/ethnicity/gender/etc. For means of understanding differences and associations of habitual characteristics, but an atrocity to judge each persons abilities based on the normalcy within any group.
