I sure wish it would, but there are people in this world who will keep it going. My husband and I are going to teach our daughter to love everyone, and that it does not matter what color a person's skin is; that just makes the world more beautfiul.

Unfortunately I do not think that we will ever see an end to racism, no matter how hard we try. Yes it is very important to teach your children that everyone is equal but always remember that others might not share that same view, and she will come into contact with some of those other people. There are many people who preach an end to racial intolerance, but they do not practice it themselves. This can be a person of any colour, religion or race because racial prejudice is a vicious cycle and it will feed upon itself. Good luck with raising your daughter to be open and fair minded about people of a different culture, colour or creed. :)

I'll do my best, thanks. I want her to love, no matter what the color of a person's skin is, or what they may look like.

Racism is illogical. We all have the same DNA There are 6,153,407,895 people of different skin tones, beliefs and cultures that reside on our planet . The diversity of race, religion and culture on Earth should be the catalyst for mutual enrichment and growth. Racism is a product of fear and ignorance. The world is richer for the mixture of different types of people. Racism, to varying degrees and in various forms, infects virtually every country of the world. Beliefs in the innate differences between “us” and “them” have been invoked to justify one group’s domination, exclusion, or elimination of another.

Unfortunately i dont think its something that will ever fade. you might be able to change the opinion of one person but to change a whole community let alone a nation, is almost impossible!dont mean to sound negative but i think deep down in every human being is lil bit of racism that exists. some active and others not, some probably dont even realise or even mean to be racist its just the way of the world. very ugly thing, very sad thing in this day and age that we still judge people by their colour.....lets hope we can all make a difference

I sure wish that the racism in this world would end but unfortuntley I don't think that it ever will. My daughter brings up her children the same why you do, teaching them to love everyone no matter what they look like or what color their skin is. God made everyone unique and the racism in this world should end its just terrible.

I keep thinking that if at least one person would teach their children to love everyone no matter what, then perhaps maybe it would,"catch on." If you think about it, we are all God's children... we're all related to one another in that way. Unfortunately racism probably will continue. :(

We definitly have the same veiws on this one. Our family is all the same race and my kids go to schools that aren't very diverse. I tell them to be nice to everyone and that color isn't important. I hope it sticks.

Racism is commonly defined as a belief or doctrine where inherent biological differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, with a corollary that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others. Well as far as i m concerned i hate such kind of things. Whenever i find someone abusing for racism i go mad and fight for it...
