SAY NO TO RACISM
i wish all of our world could just love one another i have a brown skinned daughter and a white skinned daughter and personally i think darker skin is so beautiful.. i went throgh a battle with my baby girl when she was little because some kid in school called her that aweful n word. for a short time she hated her skin color until i proved a point to her. which is that many white women such as myself and 10000000 everywhere try to get our skin darker thats why we lay in the sun. then we went through the issue of her being called a dot head. the world is cruel. but then i showed her look most indians are big people in our community nothing to be ashamed of. ladies i just want ya all to know color is just that a color and no matter black white brown or yellow it is all beautiful ... love to all♥
When I was younger, my mom told me that the only difference was the color of our skin. If we were all cut, we would bleed red, if someone broke our hearts, we would all hurt and cry the same type of tears, and I have also sent this message to my children.. and they have accepted it and know it... they don't look at color at all..... and I am a very proud mom...
I came from a family that has quite a few racist people in it. I've tried talking to them. They claim, "oh its the way i was raised". I find that bull**** and have no problem saying it. I was brought up in the same family, but I made the decision not to let what others say and do affect how i think and feel about something or someone. We are all human and as Jackie H stated above, we all cry the same tears, we all bleed red. We are all created the same, just with different tones to the skin, just like we have different hair color, different eye color, different shoe size, but its something everyone shares. Just my opinion..
some ppl are raised that way but they want ta continue that way so they came explain away their actions when something in their life dont go right . but if something happens to them n they need an organ they wont care if it came from a non white though but if someone non white needed an organ from a family member they wouldnt wanna give it to a non white !!
My Great Grandmother made it pretty clear how she felt about "mixing"... she thought my (now ex) husband was black... and she made a comment to me... for the first time that I ever in my life said anything back to her, I told her what my mom had said and her eyes bugged out of her head.
Then I proceeded to mention to her that she was not just Norwegian... she also had Irish, and she married an Englishman... so she mixed... cause they were all from different areas... she was a little mad at me... then I proceeded to tell her that my mom married my dad, who was a quarter Indian... and had German... Well, there was definitely some mixing there... she told me I could show myself out the door and when I came to my senses I could come back.
She came to my wedding and she had no problem with my first daughter that was born... she opened up just a little.... =)
exactly. it is a complete and total excuse, and i tried explaining that to them, they just dont seem to wanna change and are stuck in their ways. Any advice on how else to speak to them so that they can at least be civil around someone of a different race? Everything I have tried doesnt work.
I,M TIRED OF BEING A COLOR....ONE WORLD ONE PEOPLE ONE HEART ONE LOVE...I AM NOT SURE ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE BUT WHEN I MEET NEW PEOPLE OF ANY RACE I DO NOT GO HOME AND SAY I MEET A NICE LATIN.BLACK ASIAN WHITE NATIVE AMERICAN WHAT EVER THE RACE I JUST SAY I MEET A NICE PERSON I KNOW THIS COLOR RED IN BLOOD IS ALL THE SAME...HAVE A GOOD DAY ONE LOVE PEACE
