Every time I get a questionnaire from the government, and race is a question?

I put "Human".

That is the only way to end racism. Stop talking about it and giving it a platform.

You can't actually blame the racialists as their brains have been infiltrated by previous generations of evil spirits who want to get revenge for previous acts committed on them or committed by them on others. This whole thing can never be resolved until these elements are cast out of Planet Earth. How we do this I have no idea and divides be it racial, religious, economic, whatever you choose, will continue until we can get to grips with some pretty evil spirits that are getting possession of living humans to do their work for them.

I see the above picture as a mixture of races and cultures, your post suggests that we eliminate what makes us unique and become the human culture/race depicted in the end/reclassified one people race.

We are all one. Don't embrace your culture, be human only. Don't be white, don't be black, don't be brown, don't be yellow and don't be red.

How about coffee coloured people?

I'm sorry ... when was I allowed to have a cultural identity? I was raised to be American and was told that my culture was everyone's culture no matter what they looked like because we're all American (MLK and all that). So I don't have some unique cultural identity like some groups claim to have now.

Good post!
Funny you posted this as this very topic was on my mind this morning while reading the news. It’s sad people read so much into a persons skin color. I’m white and currently live in a predominantly all black neighborhood, fortunately, we all seem to get along just fine. πŸ‘

Nope not racist, that said, I may judge a person by the way they dress and choose to present themselves. Black or white you can dress or act like a thug or respectable human being, and black or white I will judge you equally by how you choose to express yourself. At least until I get a chance to know you. That's just basic instinct and self preservation.

I saw a few white skinned thugs the other day, my neighborhood is full of them. I give them a wide berth. And yes they were thugs, always starting # and a powder keg of issues when I see them. Fortunately not with me cause I avoid them and don't associate with them.

People are really quick to assume things are racist that are not. I guarantee you, if you really look closely more often than not, it's not skin color that's the issue.

How you choose to present yourself matters. I guarantee you one hundred percent if I dress and act a certain way I will get the exact same treatment more often than not.

Not telling anyone how to dress or act, but is unfair to expect someone to not at least attempt to protect themselves by making snap judgements when necessary.

I think there's a lot of dishonesy. If a white guy is judged based on dress, no one thinks anything of it, but judge a black guy and it's racial profiling. Sometimes it's just the way a person presents themselves and nothing more.

I can do nothing about how a person chooses to present themselves, but I'm not about to go up to every person dressed like a hoodlum be they black or white and assume they're great guys and try to be their friends just to avoid being called a racist. That's a good way to get in trouble, and it could be from either the white or black skinned guy.

Dress like the worst types of people, be you black or white or any other shade, it is not racist if people judge you by that choice.

They've been saying we're human too and that their lives matter for 200 years now.

No one's been listening or outright ignoring them because of the color of their skin. We are beyond proper arguments because they don't work.

MLK wanted peace, unity and equality. They killed him because of it.

You were lied to, your family tree is not everyone's family tree. There is nothing wrong about being proud of your culture, there is a problem if you feel superior or victimized because of your culture.

This topic sounds like Culture Communism.

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

Things were improving, anyone who says otherwise is a liar. Unfortunately identity politics vampires and the entertainment industry was quick to put a stop to that progress.

Now that's a concept that deserves some exploration. I find it impossible to trust anyone that wears brown shoes.

Of course, my family celebrates our roots, but in terms of having a cultural identity that the wider world and country marks? No.

That would be too much like some kind of white pride wouldn't it?

So, no, I don't have a cultural identity outside of being American, and being American is for everyone. Isn't that how it was presented to you in school and everywhere else?

On my phone can't see your comic, sorry.


Turning my phone sideways usually reveals the rest of the wider pics on here.
Took me a while before I found this out.

If it's not, then explain African-American history month. Explain how it becomes "problematic" to allow parents of other ethnicities to adopt black children unless they agree to expose him or her to their cultural heritage.

If we're all American, then what should it matter?
