Why can't we all just get along?

I love coming on here and posting and answering questions about different topics, but I hate it when things turn ugly because someone wants to call out another race. I say enough is enough, we are all different and unique individuals and race shouldn't be brought into a conversation that has nothing to do with the topic in the first place. I love all races, my daughter is half-white and I love her for who she is, not for the races that make her who she is. Let's just get along, race aside.

  • I was appalled by the racist comment(s) this morning. (And I don't offend easily). In that case, it was someone who just wanted to start trouble. I really think that generally the moms on here get along, but here are always a few that just can't seem to be respectful of others points of view, or who just seem to enjoy stirring up drama.

  • but i have not seen too many comments that are racist

    It usually shows up in P&CE, in the form of "if you didn't vote for Obama, you must be a racist"

  • Oh there are many more things women get bitchy and hateful about other than race here. It's sad that on a support site for moms that we can't just all be civil to each other.
