I just read the doll question and it made me wonder about something. Some people say that being white is better than any other race, but I disagree. I think that white people experience racism and discrimination like those of other races. For example, if you see 3 women standing together and they're all the same height, age, and build (average, mid twenties, really curvy), but different races (white, black, Hispanic) which do you think looks better? Which do you think looks worse? Most people I know will say that the white girl looks the worst and that the girls of other races look better. The opposite seems to apply with really thin girls, though. I grew up with my family telling me that my butt was too big and looked like "a black girl's butt" and it was too big because I'm white.
Do you think that different races are conditioned to believe that because of their race they should look a certain way, act a certain way, etc.?

My daughter lives and works in So America. She has milky white skin and big green eyes- definitely a minority. In So America when you apply for a job you must include your photo. My daughter has been told that your appearance counts, big time.

My husband loves me wrinkles, gray hair and all. That is the only thing that matters with me, and I feel the same way about him.
