SAY NO TO RACISM by Numizmat SAY NO TO RACISM by Numizmat
:pc:What is Racism?</u> Racism means attitudes, practices and other factors that disadvantage people because of their race, color or ethnicity. Racism can be directed against any race, color or ethnicity.
Some examples of racism are obvious, such as graffiti, intimidation or physical violence. Racial and ethnic slurs and "jokes" are other examples. Unfortunately, they are often ignored because people do not know how to deal with them.
Other forms of racism are not obvious, such as discrimination in hiring and apartment rentals, or policies that disadvantage members of certain races, whether intentionally or not.
Racism exists at three main levels: individual, institutional and cultural.
What can I do to stop racism?
First of all, speak out against racism. Otherwise, your silence may be interpreted as tacit approval of discrimination. You have the right, as well as the responsibility, to speak out.

I totally hate racist people! But if we think well, it's impossible to stop the racism in the world. I mean, it dosen't matter how much we fight against it, it will never stop (it dosent mean we must stop fighting against racism). Especially because the media influences a lot on racism, it's a kind of brainwash that we don't realize. Most of the commercials to promote something good, features a happy white family in a pretty house, or a beautiful women, or a rich white man with a lot of girls. Or the terrible stereotype that the perfect girl is the blonde girl, with blue eyes and rosy cheeks, this kind of stereotype is used in advertisements and commercials. While when they want to show the poverty, they show a black family, if they wanna show drugs, they show black people using drugs and vandalizing. To stop racism we must stop the media!

The Bible says that all people are of "one blood," so racism is disrespectful to God as well as the victim. Even if you aren't Christian, studies have shown that there is a 0.2 genetic difference between any two people, regardless of their "race." So, racist people really have no excuse at all for scorning their fellow human beings based on superficial differences.

I have grown up in a racist environment ever since I was born. My mom was introduced to it when black children would injure white children. They would say, "All our problems are because of you!" Because of that, so many white kids were beat up by blacks, it was outrageous. One that had bullied my mom threatened to kill her whole family if she told an adult. She was constantly dragged into the bushes and punched and kicked.

There were victims that had it worse, though. Someone suffered from a broken arm. That is simply insane. However, I am not racist. Just because my family was discriminated against by blacks doesn't mean I should act like my grandmother or uncle. 

True, millions of blacks appear on the news for crimes. But I know there are more than just black criminals out there, but ones who are innocent. Half of my family believes African Americans are all crazy in the head. I don't believe so.

I just wish racism would stop.

Yeah I hate racism but really wish people would stop using 'That's racist' to win a fight.

There was a deviation by this black claiming that all this hate art he had done about a group called the #cutecookiesfamily was okay because ONE of the members called me a 'nigga' (me and this girl are both white)... despite this having nothing to do with the hate art and she said this AFTER he posted it ...
he claimed because he was a black man she and I were bullying him. To make this worse he had also made fun of this girl's little sister FOR BEING GINGER before she had done this.

So you're saying that practicing racism? And white people call irish red heads "ginger" which is interesting. seeing as ginger = nigger in an anagram. White people invented BOTH terms.
soulfeatherwolf Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2013
No. That's not my argument at all. 

I don't think it's fair that the black person should get away with making fun of a ginger for being ginger but if it's the other way around it's a crime. (And this DOES happen) 

REVLAKECC Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2013
its not "fair" another word for meaning (white/just/pure)...........   And how does a black person get away with anything largely incorrect in a system of white supremacy/racism?  The apparently he was called a nigga/nigger and you seem to care nothing of that. and thats supposed to worse than the term "ginger" which is the same word scramble up....  You said you are a white person, how are you affected by what a non white person says?
