  1. Dying at “fat guy walking up a flight of stairs.” 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

    It’s not okay to not like someone because of the color of their skin. It’s okay to not like them because of their personality or their mannerisms but the color of their skin….Nah ah!!!!

    Definition of racism is prejudice, discrimination or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.

    Racism does exist my friend! I have been subjected to it. It’s cute that you don’t think it exists. Thank your lucky stars that you have never ever been judged, treated differently, victimized or ridiculed because of the color of your skin. Be oh so thankful!

    Thanks for the shout out, OG! You’re still one one of my faves. 😁

      How do you know I’ve never been discriminated due to the hue of my skin Rakkelle?

      You gotta let people choose for themselves, eventually you and I may be made to accept something that we despise as well. If you want freedom then you must extend freedom to those whom you disagree with.

      How many different words do we need to express prejudice?

      Freedom is very delicate, once edicts are made they can never be taken back.

      If you won’t welcome the “racist” why should they welcome you?

  2. I never said that you were not discriminated against. Where in my comment did I say that? Never said it, 007.

    Caucasians are discriminated against too, don’t forget my husband is white…I roll with him often enough to know that racism works both ways.

    I agree that people should be left alone to choose. I didn’t say otherwise, either.

    There are always scores of words to describe any one thing. Remember that! Prejudice, racism, discrimination, antagonism – all the same thing and it does exist!

    I am not welcoming any “racist” into my home and there is no need for them, he, she or it to welcome me either. They can keep to themselves and leave me and my family alone and I’ll sure as hell to keep to myself.

      exactly. I aint saying to invite them into your home. But in the end I think that all, all of us want. Is to be left alone to chose for ourselves. Instead of demanding of others, we should just leave well enough alone and take care of ourselves. Instead of telling everyone else how to live, live for ourselves and allow them the same.

      1. And that’s fine and good, 007. No one should be told how to live. I agree with that 100%; and yes everyone should be left alone to live however s/he chooses, I agree with all of that! All of that doesn’t mean that racism does not exist because it does!

        As a woman of color I have experienced it and my husband, a white American (non-Jewish) male has also experienced it. Racism exist!!!!!!

          1. There isn’t much a difference EXCEPT that racism speaks only to an individual’s race while being prejudice can speak to one’s dislike about just about anything about a person, not only race. Prejudice is oftentimes described as opinion or percieved opinion, rather, as opposed to reality or experience.

              Exactly Rakkelle. I could be wrong, but I think even the most “racist” will have at least one friend or acquaintance that is of that race that they espouse to dislike or even hate.

              I know that people will make fun of a white guy who says that he has one black friend per say. But I think that alone shows that he is prejudice and not racist.

              Are there any persons out there who will never befriend or be friended by another of a different race?

              That’s my problem with “racism”. It seems as it is just another label for “everyone else”, instead of allowing others the freedom to choose and decide for themselves.

              If someone is racist, so be it. It’s life and people will find numerous reasons to not like someone else.

              What is the problem with people not liking each other? Regardless of the reason?

              I’m not saying that it’s easy, but if we desire freedom, then we must allow those whom we disagree with to be free as well.

              If we cannot love the “racist” enough to allow them the freedom to choose and decide for themselves, then what happens when we are no longer free to choose and decide for ourselves?

              Freedom is very delicate, the more we attempt to force everyone else to bend to our will, then eventually we will be made to bend to their will.

              1. I agree with pretty much everything you’ve outlined above, all of it except where you describe racism as a label because it’s not just a label. It’s real, very real and it does exist.

                Your entire rant on freedom. True! Very true and well stated. Freedom is delicate and we should always allow people their own choices and force our choices and beliefs on them.

                I feel like you’re describing racism as just not liking someone but it runs way deeper than that. Racism describes the core belief that one’s own race (the individual’s/racist’s race) is superior to another race and the treatment of that person of the other race as “less than” because of it. Like I said it runs much deeper than not liking someone.

                We can go back and forth on this all day but I’m going to elect not to. Let’s agree to disagree on this one. I will leave you with my original thought – Racism does exist.

                Have the best day!

              Is calling someone a racist fair? Is it fair to whom they may actually be?

              The racism moniker is the same as someone not liking someone for the color of their skin.

              You say “x” is racist because they said or acted like they didn’t like “y”. How is that any different?

              Why would you willingly carry someone else’s luggage for them? Meaning, it is your assumption of them that they are racist. People who clamor about racism do so under the same guise that they claim those other people are racist.
