I'm white. There I said it. I'm not racist, or suffering from white guilt. However, why does every single white person have to prove this to every single non white person. Why is it I have to go out of my way, like way way out, just to make you happy?

Seriously, this shit is getting ridiculous.

It's bad enough I have to tell my children to be very careful of what they say around other children. They could be s saying something completely innocent and next thing you know very labeled a racist and charged with hate crimes. I honestly don't even know what to tell my daughter, say African American, black, Brown, what cause everything offends someone.

Why not say person, if you simply must classify someone? 

That person pissed me off. That person is nice. That person needs help. Ecetera, etcetera, ect.

Why do you have to tell your kids to be careful about what they say, are you saying things tha you don't want them to repeat?

I've never felt any guilt for being white. I've never felt that I needed to treat someone of any other race different because of the color of their skin... I've never had a discussion with my children about being careful what they say. It's never been an issue.

I think as long as you show everyone the same respect, you wont get that label.

I know how to be nice and nonbigoted around other people, so I don't have that problem.
