yes its so true, ive been telling people that for so long and im african-american myself. I get embarrassed sometimes by the way most of them act. The line I hate the most is "is it because im black". You dont know, well you probably do know, how annoying that is.

And I personally think that it is dumb that blacks can call each other "n****" but if somebody whose white says it, they ready to kill the person. I hate to say this, but I thinik my race is stupid.

I agree, I am white, but feel that if black people use the N word then it will never be banished from our vocabulary, I hate the word along with any other demeaning words

It is not possible for minority groups to be racist.

I beg to differ. It doesn't matter what color u are. U can be a liable racist. So the hole theory about only white is bogus.

You are right. Racism is on both sides of the fence. No matter where it exists, it is wrong. Many African-Americans are reminded daily that they are second-class citizens because of the many things that are wrong in our society. This, combined with their history of slavery and blatant segregation that was only abolished in recent years has left an open wound on the United States that will take many generations of love to heal. Just realize there will always be people who dislike you for one reason or another, be it your race, the way you wear your hair, or the way you hold your coffee cup. Treat them with love and respect. Maybe their parents were racists and they just don’t know any better. They may be won over when they see that you are not like their perceived stereotype. You can take control if you find there is a company or government agency breaking the law and discriminating against you. Gather your evidence, get a lawyer, and call them out.

Relationships between races are better nowdays but I long for the day when all will drop the word race and see each other as simply humans, neighbors, work partners, etc because color of skin has no bearing on a person's personality. I have never been prejiduce nor have even though a racist thought. Neither were my parents and I have passed the same trait to my children. If I don't accept you, it won't be because of the color of your skin or where you live or what religion you practice. I would be because you did something, such as robbed me or cheated me in someway and all races have people who do those things.

I don't think this is right. However, racism is a fact that nowadays affects everybody regardless of race, or skin color.

One cannot generalize like that. Racist feelings are prevalent in both. Depending on the circumstances, one could see the reactions.
