Ignoring problems is not the same as solving.
And when something doesnt effect you, its easy to say "you're going to far"
Its not racism that bothers people, its me speaking on WHITE racism that makes them upset. I notice you didnt chastise or make a sarcastic comment at CarolinaPanthers8789 for calling me racist or saying I hate white people. That's pretty much been the tone of the board when these discussions come up, save the white person and throw KT under the bus.
I guess I just don't pay a lot of attention to racism. I know that it's there, but I'd rather let it be a non-issue. Racism affects every race. I really just don't pay much attention to the color of ones skin, because I see everyone as equals -- it's how I was raised, and how everyone should be raised. I have many friends and co-workers who are a different skin color, but they are just like I am and really no different. I guess from my experience racism just isn't that big of a deal for me or many of the people that I know (including people who are a different race than I am).
I didn't make response regarding CarolinaPanthers8789's comments calling you a racist, because while I don't believe that you are racist, you do show a lot of racist qualities. I know that you are only trying to stick up for your race, because you believe that blacks are the only race that receives racism, but your logic is very flawed imo. Every race has racism thrown their way. It's sad, it's pathetic, and it's ignorant in this day and age, but it's the simple truth. If everyone stopped making racist comments, and/or making everything about race, then racism wouldn't exist. Although that will never happen, because racism will always be in the mind of someone. I just really wish that wasn't true, because really no race is different from one another other than culture (which is changing a bit, since we're a melting pot).
Anyways this thread took a major turn lol. It's a healthy discussion to have though.
