I grew up in 70s/80s in the south. I'm a black guy. I got in a few fights with white kids at school. At no point did me or the white kids ever think it was "racism". Kids at that age don't really have a deep concept of "race".
This is really disturbing because it creates a sort of minority privilege where anything done to us can be perceived to be racially motivated.

No not poor me. I guess you missed the part where I said I admitted my mistakes and took responsibility for it knowing I would be kicked out. Master Chief tried everything to keep me in but it was zero tolerance. I have led quite a successful life after I got over the shame.
And no 20 is not an adult. By law yes but emotionally and mentally no.
This is what I get for talking to people online.

So , you believe in no punishment for wrong-doing ?
no i believe in not hitting people to get them to do what you say.
we don't beat or hit criminals unless they use violence first, we put them on trial and lock them in cages.
again, if i can't punch you in the mouth when you do something wrong, no, you shouldn't hit your kids.
your a lazy parent if you do, mentally lazy. there are plenty of ways to discipline a child without hitting them.
