Is this world abit too racist?
Why can't we get along with each other we are all the same inside, I believe in my opinion that we are scared of change.
I hate racism! It has improved in recent years (people are becoming more tolerant of others) but as humans we still have a long way to go. I hope to see an end to racism in my lifetime.
There will and always have been groups of people who will find reasons to dislike other groups of people. Even if we all the same skin color there would be discrimination based upon heritage, eye color, religion, or some other factor. It seems as though it's human nature for some people to (need) to feel or believe they are born "superior"
If it's not racism then it's a social economic status one uses to separate themselves from the lower class or mass population. (VIP sitting areas in nightclubs, first class travel on planes, 5 Star hotels and restaurants, Penthouse Apartments, beach homes, yachts, mansions, fame, money, and power.) Truth be told most people don't want pure equality where everyone is treated the same. What they want is an equal opportunity to become "special".
In their eyes you're either "special" or a "nobody". Equality equal mediocrity. They need to be able to measure and compare themselves to others. Instead of making all schools grade on a simple "pass/fail: basis people want to know if their GPA or score was highest or higher than most others.
Everything is ranked as the "best", "good", "average", and "poor" from schools to cars. We're always trying to find a way to "stand out" from the rest of the world by pointing to something that says "I'm the best or the top" (whatever) because.....etc
Simply put most human beings have a (need) to find ways to stroke their egos.

In a conversation about racism in America today, a young relative, made this statement'"It is worse than it was six years ago!"It took me a moment to catch his drift. He is a young, (many times naive), anti-Obama conservative and I took his comment to mean it is worse since Pres....

I'd like to get people's opinions on this.It seems that even today some African Americans think that all white people are out to get them, and that anything a white person says is a slight against them. Don't get me wrong - I know they have to take crap from people every day - I know that.But when...
