are there still discrimination in terms of he nationality of in terms of the complexion of the person. do you consider the white as the better race. for me it's a big no. i respect the nationality and the color of he other people. we are all equal in the eyes of God. why discriminate the other people. Let us treat each other equally. don't be a racist.

In the mind of mediocre, rubbish is easily produced. Every American is equal except for the racist, skin color is just skin deep, underneath is the same for all people. If one need respect from other, he needs to show respect first, it is that simple. With an American president from an African heritage got elected, USA is closing the gap of century old of racial inequality in the country.

I agree carmel... we all the same people who accomplish or try to the same goals in life. I don't understand why the colour of skin should matter. I remember always hearing "you should mix races because you will confuse the child as they grow up!". I am a bi-racial child (mother white, father black) and frankly I don't understand what there is to be confused about. I know who I am and what I want and the colour of my skin isn't going to change a damn thing. If someone doesn't like the colour of my skin they can just bite me and look the other way!

sometimes the history,economy status and the culture affects the dignity of one person and racism,prejudices and etc started. Thats why sometimes white and black are the center of racism. Sometimes white better than black people why??because of their economy status. Anyways this was according to observation

my idol is malcolm x. he was a black nationalist and freedom of rights during the 1950s and i admire his courage during the dark period in america's civil rights movement. he showed me the way to truly respect every human under a giant umbrella of brotherhood. and yes, let's remember the past and present figures of all those that fought and is still fighting for civil rights in every forgotten corners of the world.

I believe everyone should be treated as equals, we were all created the same way and we are all human beings, i simply can't understand those people who are racists and believe that their "race" is the superior one.

There is growing discrimination towards people of different shades. Colonialism in part put mullatos on a pedestal because of their "closeness to being white". They got better treatment and there were those who became so brainwashed that they felt that somehow the degree of melanin in the skin determined superiority, which is foolish. At a time, the world was just African until some migrated and genetic changes occurred to people who settled in different parts of the world but the spirit of the world's eldest ancestors are still in Africa. We must respect the elders and recognize that the differences in humanity is only skin deep but the world's people are equal in intelligence, heart, and spirit. No comaparisons can be be made, because cultural practices are different and should be looked upon with an open heart and mind.

I agree with you. There is still a lot of racism and discrimination in our country though. A lot of people think that because our new president is African American that this will change. We shall see. I was actually just flipping through Seventeen magazine at the supermarket and an article caught my eye about black and white proms. Apparently in the south, I believe it was in Georgia. There is a school that has separate proms for black people and white people, yet they all go to school together. How crazy is that?!

I don't think this is true untill this day. And I personally think that one must b judged by one's performance and not at all by one's birth,nationality,,or complexion which can never be controlled by human beings themselves.

Black and Whites are just terms and should not be used to discriminate people. No matter what the color, it's the thought that counts and one should not be discriminated based on. There's this Indian movie which depicts the discrimination based on creed and caste and the main protagonist of the story takes one person from both communities and bangs their hands with a stone and mixes their blood. And then he asks the others to differentiate the blood and then talk about differences. It's a very inspiring movie. The thing is people don't understand that there's nothing in color and one should look at the spirit of life and have fun while being good to all. bourne

Racism will still exist until the end of time. Some people just don't care to see that everyone is all equal in the eyes of God. The amount of hatred in the world should tell us what human kind really is like. If everyone could live in peace, I think there would be problems in the world. But racism is only a small part of the problem, and that problem will continue to stay small, yet be a big part of daily life for many people. I live in a house where there are mixed races but it doesn't bother me. Everyone should be treated as an equal no matter what.

People are people. I'll be the first one to admit that I have been racial before in my life, but only the way they act. I will not judge one person just on the color that they were born with. This go's both ways from being African American to Caucasian.
