Racism

I am a white male age 18. I have friends of every race with most of my close friends being both black and white. We never have issues with race nor do we encounter any. Im writing this because although I know there is some racism still around i get angry when it is used as an excuse for things. Everything something goes wrong or not there way they say it racism. In order for our generation to completely wipe out racism we need to stop making excuses and work harder. what are you thought on it?

I agree. Until we stop using race for things it will continue to be a problem for everyone. We need to stop seeing a "black, brown, white yellow or what have you man" and just see the man. Until we see stop thinking of each as being different racism will continue. We can't use it as an excuse, to blame, or to our advantage. We need to take responsibility for everything we do and be ready to realize that no one is better then anyone else. The color of our skin should not matter. It's what we do and who we are that makes all the difference.

in my country,there is no racism i think,but there is class discrimination. u are right.we should wipe out racism. but it is a matter of fact which existed a long long ago,even if we have the intention of boycotting the racism,we still can not end it completely.

I completely agree with you its 2008 I think that it is time that we start treating everyone as equals because there is no race thats mean or bad and the others aren't there are bad people in every kind of race and not just one kind...and I also agree with something else im also sick of when people dotn get a job or whatever they say it's because im this kind of race or that kind of race...I know that that may happen but I know some people that say that everytime something goes wrong with them in their lives...and I don't really get that because whenever something in my life doesn't go like it is suppose to I don't just say its cause im this color or its that color...I say thats just part of life because life isn't always perfect...maybe next time....
