racist.. sexist.. anything adult content

why does it matter to you? truly there was a debate on here earlier regarding racism, in the end of the day WHY does it matter to you what some one thinks/believes? i see so many people on here having debates no offense do you truly think your opinion matters? or that you will miraculously change a racist person? i mean its rather amusing how peeved you strangers get at another strangers views.. i mean at the end of the day isn't what you believe in matter? why do people care so much about what others think or think they need to change them???

  • Why do you care enough to make a post about it?

    Answer by BradenIsMySon at 10:49 AM on Jul. 28, 2010

  • because there just might be someone out there that is ignorant in their beliefs that you may be able to change. Alot of folks go with what they grew up hearing and do not think for themselves.Maybe someone on here could get someone thinking. remember,a journey of a thousand miles starts with one step.It truly can change the world with one individual.You never know. I think we all impact one another. Haven't you ever have someone do something small for you that changed the course of your life?

  • It doesn't...UNLESS I witness them hating someone, putting them down, mistreating the, etc., because of their beliefs. I don't care what you think as long as you're not inflicting pain on someone else.

  • Because this is a forum for adults to have discussions. Duh.

  • Well if no one cares about popular opinion why post questions at all? If you think one persons opinion can't make a difference than why isn't Hitler still in power?
    One opinion can start a revolution. One persons new ideas can give pause to others. Feeling strongly about things makes us human, other wise we would all be pigs, cows and dogs. Out grazing for our food and not much thinking about anything that matters.

  • some people think that they are right and everyone needs to think like them and of corse they will once they hear the truth because they are right. on the other hand some people like to debat for fun, even when they know that they arn't going to change anybody's minds.

  • I don't care if anyone likes me or not. Everyone loves to be loved.

    I am me and know one can change it.

    I think it is really nice to get opinions from everyone, whether they are prejudice or not. Who cares???? LOL

    They have to live with them selves and I have to live with me!

  • I know I can't change minds. But if we see what we believe to be injustice we should stand up and say something. If you turn a blind eye nothing will ever change.
