The System of Racism makes people crazy...
If you throw some guns in the mix, you’ll have a recipe for murder and mayhem…and this ain’t no plot from a Hollywood film, this is reality. In light of recent events, it seems that now is the time to take a serious look at our society and start building the language and the dialogue towards society's socioeconomic betterment.

I think that economy hasn't much to do with racism.Deeply seeded cultural intolerance is very hard to remove and is the main cause of interracial agression.Discrimination happens in both ways-I've been called a racist because I am white and hold conservative political views-but I love afro-american people and have many afro-american and african friends.I am Jewish so I know what intolerance and discrimination feel like and I would never hurt anyone with different skin color than mine or different beliefs.Hurting anyone deliberately is a stupid and evil thing to do.As you said interracial and international dialogue must be encouraged in order to break these cultural barriers.

Racism is the trendy charge these days. I believe it is over-used and frequently misapplied.I know that racism applies to race and not ethnicity, but that hasn't stopped many from applying the racism charge, so I include it here also.Many of the accusations I see should have been accusations of...

The other day I read an article about an assault on a white male who was walking in Georgia with his 'African-American' girlfriend. Is discrimination still an issue in the 21st Century? I find this to be very sad. People should be able to date whomever they please regardless of their race. Too many...

This is an issue where both sides bear significant guilt, the left is guilty of throwing accusations of racist around too easily but the right has the automatic reaction of crying foul. The sad truth is racism is ingrained in large tracts of the GOP and the conservative movement, this is not an...
