None of us alone can save the nation or world. But each of us can make a positive difference if we commit ourselves to do so.
– Cornel West
It’s naive to think that you aren’t affected by this issue. If you think so, you are probably benefiting from from this systemic oppression. Unknowingly.
Racism has a very quick expiration date when exposed to actual contact with people.
– Hasan Minhaj
Racism was never a one race phenomenon.
– Sipho P Nkosi
Everyone of us will bleed when being cut. You are no different than others. Remember we are all humans.
It is wiser to hate the potter instead of the clay cup. After all, the clay cup didn’t made itself. So who are you hating when you hate a race of people? After all, the clay cup didn’t make itself.
Thanks to political correctness, we have gone from recognizing shades of gray (respecting the simultaneous legitimacy of multiple perspectives), past black-or-white (which purports that one position is 100% correct while the other is 100% wrong), to now a single color (which punishes anyone who believes there even is another point of view).
– Alan Robert Neal
During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.
– Nelson Mandela
No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
– Nelson Mandela
Judging someone by the color of their skin is ignorant. Their skin complexion has nothing to do with their morals, beliefs or intelligence.
No human race is superior; no religious faith is inferior.All collective judgements are wrong. Only racists make them.
– Elie Wiesel
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
– Martin Luther King Jr.
Racism springs from the lie that certain human beings are less than fully human. It’s a self-centered falsehood that corrupts our minds into believing we are right to treat others as we would not want to be treated.
– Alveda King
We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
– Martin Luther King Jr.
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.
I just don’t get it. We all have organs, we eat, sing, and dance, but the color of our skin will affect the way people think. Maybe black people should just go to Europe, because the people in Europe adore black people. The Europeans are more accepting to them than Americans.
I hope you know that most of the white singers and dancers from all around the world, I would say at least half of them are inspired by African Americans. Kimbra is a great example. Amy Winehouse. Adele. Tina Marie. Gavin Degraw Ect. Do I have to continue?
Not liking a person for being annoying and just downright ignorant doesn’t make you a bad person, sometimes. Until everyone finds out the person you don’t like is black, then you just suddenly become a complete bigot for hating them. Why must people do this? No one really knows.
As you grow older, you’ll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don’t you forget it – whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, he is trash.
– Harper Lee
Do you know what we call opinion in the absence of evidence? We call it prejudice.
– Michael Crichton
Judgements prevent us from seeing the good that lies beyond appearances.
– Wayne Dyer
What is it you most dislike? Stupidity, especially in its nastiest forms of racism and superstition.
– Christopher Hitchens
Just because they are black on the outside, doesn’t mean that they are black on the inside.
Racist people are the true black ones. They are black on the inside, though they do not know it.
America is so racist and yet they can vote a black man president. The world’s most powerful man (Obama) is a black man. Why racism?
Person’s color of skin depends upon the country in which he lives. Because every country has different weather, different atmosphere.
Don’t be racist, be like Mario:
He’s an Italian
Made by the Japanese
Who speaks English
And looks like a Mexican.
I will always fight against racism. Be it from black people or white people bigotry should have no place in our country and opinion makers I will speak up…Let it go.
Well, with all the respect to everybody here: The problem IS NOT THE COLOR OF OUR SKIN, the real problem is rather BEHAVIOR, no matter what color we are, God delighted in His creation when He created us, but if OUR BEHAVIORS are acting like ANIMALS rather than HUMANS towards each other, of course there will always be rejection from any side.
You know, I think it’s kinda annoying how people always make references to whites as the racist ones. If a white says something regarding color they are racist, if anyone else does they are just proud of who they are. Racism is racism, no matter what. There are people who hate whites for no reason at all and I get one of the most stupid stereotypes – I’m stupid because of my hair color. Doesn’t make any sense I’m an incredible level of stupid for no apparent reason cause my hair is blond. Stupid stuff right there. But anyways if you think whites never suffered in America then you need to read up on your history a little more.
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.
Travel broadens the mind, if you visit different countries, you may find that most of the world’s population are similar in the way they treat strangers. In my experience, it has been with nothing but kindness.
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.
There are good people and bad people, that’s life. Color/race/religion/sexual orientation/language don’t come into it.
The Bible, Matthew 22:39
Love your neighbor as yourself.’
The Bible, Leviticus 19
1The LORD … Said to Moses,2 “Say this to the entire community of Israel: You must be holy because I, the LORD your God, am holy.
33 Do not exploit the foreigners who live in your land.
34 They should be treated like everyone else, and you must love them as you love yourself.
The Bible, Colossians 3:11
Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.
The Bible, Proverbs 14:21
If you want to be happy, be kind to the poor; it is a sin to despise anyone.
1 Samuel 16
7 The LORD said … The LORD doesn’t make decisions the way you do! People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at a person’s thoughts and intentions.
The Bible, Acts 10:34
Now I am certain that God treats all people alike.
So we must be the same as He is, or we’ll be in danger of hellfire.
And the Lord doesn’t favor one by one’s appearance. (How you dress, your color of your skin, etc.) He looks at what”s in your heart.
The beauty of one’s soul is what’s most important to Him. So please be delighted in all His creation! There’s many more verses like these so look them up.
