    Does pointing out race help or hurt society?

    It seems pointing out race is a popular thing. Do you think this increases racism (from all races) or helps the problem of racism?

    It can only hurt. You can never find a "race" responsible for anything. You can only find "people" responsible.

    You are tinting an entire group of people in a brush if you play the race card. It is never fair, or never justified. It can only hurt people.

    Pointing out race doesn't always help or hurt. In some situations it may help, other times it may harm, and still in other cases it may do neither. Generalizing whether pointing out race is good or bad is not a good thing because each situation is specific. Pointing out race doesn't always indicate racism but it can. So many people want to generalize that mentioning race means that someone is being overly sensitive or they are being racist. Sometimes taking race into account may aid in understanding specific situations but not always.

    I think it is wrong. We are all Human beings and are equal.
