this is a touchy subject at best...are there any "white" people out ther who feel they have been discrimanated against? i disagree with racism in any form but i do think that certain ethnicities claim white people are rascist when they are guilty of the same thing...your responses please....

Yes I have! I was an only white kid that grew up in the black end of town. I was up in age before I learned blacks were the minority. I was in a 4H-group back then, we took a trip to the local YMCA, and the guy at the door would not let us all in, because I was in the group, the only white child! I am not bitter, it happens beside this was in the 70's and a lot has changed since then. Not saying it does not still happen, just not as much. I do think we humans are growing in the right direction and racism is losing ground with each year.

I agree with you 100%, I said this to someone once and they said the anti-racism laws state that it is to protect the...minority...so until we are part of the minority I guess nothing is racist towards.... it is sad there is any but it does come from all sides.
