hmmmm...I'm against racism although I do come from a very Racist family... Sadly

My friend says that he can be racist and get away with it because he's black....=O
I dont believe that... My school is very Racist too...
I tell people to knock it off but that just tells them to keep saying racist jokes to get
on my nerves....

Some teachers probably feel worried if they stop jokes like that. Racism is a major taboo in this country. Everyone is afraid of saying anything unless they offend someone.

I'm totally against racism. I'm all for equal rights, that sort of thing. People don't just get away with racism 'cause they're black. Racism is the belief that one race is better than another, period. It's not just black against white. It's anyone that thinks they're better because of the color of their skin or their origins. Sometimes black people can tell racist-sounding jokes because they're the one telling it and they're also the butt of the joke, so it's okay. It's like a blond telling a dumb blond joke, only more tabooed. There is a difference between a racist person and someone telling a random racist-sounding "joke", and it's time people realized it.

Everyone is racist some point in their lives. They may not say it, but they can think it. Not all whites are racist, blacks are racist too. :|

You're probably right...

When I was little, I didn't think being black was a bad thing. I thought it was just
someone with a really good tan (I was three).

I think that people are racist just because of difference. :l
It's just like if a mentally retarded or a disfigured person came in. They'd be different
from most people and of course there'd be someone to taunt them. 
Try thinking of instead of blacks going to the U.S, whites go to africa in a vice-versa
way of the slave trade. Most of the people there would be black right? So they'd treat the
whites the same racist way whites treated blacks in those days.

Thank you, Mickala.
I hope I didn't insult you.

I agree with what you said.
Just because they're different.

But I don't feel racist towards the blacks.
I feel racist towards, well, the Jews, for example.
What is Eden again? (:
