Yeah affirmative action is just reverse racism. It’s getting preferable treatment because you are of another race. That’s all racism really is
anyway. Acting or receiving special treatment because of your race.
Unfortunately, I don’t think there will ever be a “cure” for racism. I actually think separation of races is a good thing. IF all the races were
separate then there would be less room for racism. But sadly...that doesn’t work either. Because then races will start fighting among themselves..as
an example look at the asian population. This may not still be true...but asians get very offended if u call them the wrong race. If u call a korean
and jap they will flip out. 2 sets of people that look pretty much the same, are racist against each other.
So therefore...we can never win. I’ll admit it, im prejudiced against certain peoples sexual orientation, and their race. I’m not proud of it, but
at least I can admit it. However, I never had a problem working or interacting with anyone, and that’s just being of a higher state of mind.
You probably think that I can’t be of a higher state, and still be slightly bigoted...but actually I think that’s what puts me in the higher
state. I have problems with people, because I don’t like them for whatever reason...but I’m a strong enough and smart enough person to admit that
those attitudes aren’t right, and I shouldn’t treat people any different.
The sad thing is I don’t even know why I am that way....I think the reason u can never get rid of racism, is because of free will and choice. Some
people don’t like the color blue. They don’t know why. They just know they don’t’ like that color, and even if they can co-exist with that
color, they will never like it. I think it just has to do with preference.
Racisim is just a "preferece" to one person or idea to another. It's no different then likey turkey sandwiches over ham sandwiches....but people
think it's bad because it's people. "OMG HOW COULD YOU NOT LIKE [THIS] RACE OR [THAT TYPE] OF SEXUAL PREFERENCE!! YOU ARE HORRIBLE!"
No.....it's natural to not like things,even if those other things are people. the problem occurs when u let those emotions take the better of you. of
course people are gonna hate one another, i think that's honestly just human nature, and it's something that we can't change. As long as we can
think, act, and speak for ourselves...we will hate the things that we do not like, even if we don't understand why we don't like them.
The important thing is, even if you DON’T like someone of another race, religion, or sex orientation...that you don’t be a racist bigot and treat
them differently, or porously and maliciously try to harm them.
We can't control the way we feel, but we can control the way we act.
