Have any of you been brought up by racist parents, and if so ..as a grown up now how do you ...
feel.. looking back at some of the comments about other race...you heard at the dinner table by your parents.
Compassion is not restricted to rescuing anyone from anything. Your parents too are humans and as such subject to judgment errors. Forgive your parents for those remarks because it was the best that they were at that time. You do not have to be chained by their remarks done a long time ago.
Well I see racism as a form of ignorance. So I ignore those involved in this practice.
Hmmmm. Good question. My mother was never one to teach us racism but love based on treatment and appreciation and that is what I have kept close in teaching my own children!
my dad is a racist and me and him have had some pretty heated arguements about it. he is a smart man with a stupid sense of what people are like. he dislikes any race that isn't white which i find insane but no one will change his mind.
My mom was/is still racist. It's annoying when she starts up. I just ignore her entirely and don't fuel her fire.
I always thought that my grandpa was racist when I was a kid. As an adult though, I have had long conversations with him and found out that he hates the cultures more than the colors of people's skin, which is still not good, but I was able to stop looking at him as a complete racist at least. He always talked about how ignorant some cultures are, and I always mistook it for him saying how stupid certain people of color are. I don't know how to feel about it these days. Everyone has their own perspective and they all think that their perspective is the right. In the end, just serve your fellow man, you will never have an obscurity of the values of right and wrong.
yes,i was brought up that way.but my wife of 25 years is a chinese while i am indian:)
My father was born and raised down in Mississippi and though he tried to overcome the racism that had been pounded into him from the day he was born, it was never easy for him. But he did not object when my best friend in elementary school was black and he was always careful to watch his language around us kids. Though he will still say something pretty crude now and then and will be the first to admit he has some strong racist feelings, still he did what he could to not poison his children the way he had been.

I know this is a very touchy issue but people ought to know! I can't help but feel sick each time the thought that Racism still exist occurs in my mind. I feel as though modern idea-logy on racism has some how changed....

Why Do So Many Black People Say Whites are racist Without Questioning If They Really Are Racist?

While I am not a republic nor completly white, I am so tired of the constant assumption that Republicans are just white racist. Why do people assume this? It would be like saying Democrats are just poor black and...
