Okay. I was watching Oprah the other day and they did a segment about the Freedom Riders. I sat there listening to their heroic stories and how angry mobs would terrorize them and beat them up. I'm thinking, what is the point of being a hurtful racist? I don't understand why the site of black people disgust people! I really don't! And I don't understand why the segregation of white and black people is so important. I really don't. If you ask me it's a waste of energy.Answer Question

I never knew how nasty people could be to you because the color of your skin until i was an adult. I went to a school where there was a good mix of almost every race. I moved into a white neighbor hood and im white and hispanic my husband is puerto rican and this white man was saying racist things about hispanic people and it broke my heart to think someone might treat my kids bad because they are not white. I think it can go anyway anybody can be racist black white hispanic asain. I really think its worse when whit people say things because we get more of a shame on you. But there's always someone in a race who thinks they are better than another so it should be an equal shame on you.

It's a learned behavior, you were raised to know that you are equal to all others. Some people were raised to "know" that they are better than others because the color of their skin. You have the morals you have because of your parents and environment that you were raised in. Whenever I see something racist I remember how thankful I am for my mom, and how much it must suck to walk around with all that hate built up. The other part is something might have happened they made them believe that they are, a paradigm.
