you sound like racism doesnt exist for you.
If I sound like this it's because I don't let it exist for me. I am highly intelligent, resourceful, attractive, ambitious, and that is usually
enough to get me where I want to go regardless of race. I've had the proverbial doors slammed in my face because of my race and sex, and I'm sure I
will again, but I don't let it get me down. I don't cry and whine about it.
Like I said before, in my time on this planet I've seen the racism diminish exponentially from the time when I was a kid and no one was allowed to
play with me. Things aren't perfect, but they are getting better not worse and I appreciate that.
Have you ever been racially abused or attacked?
Sure. I've never been physically attacked, but I've been threatened, insulted, mistreated, made fun of, etc...all the usual suspects.
I definitely agree with you about the whole celebrity/charity thing...it is complete and total BS. And you're right, it is all about self promotion.
LOL no, I didn't watch the AI special because I can't stand that crap. If there's one thing I hate more than reality shows it's BS celebrity
endorsements for charity. But I think it has much more to do with being a celebrity than it does with being white because tons of people give money to
charity every day but don't pat themselves on the back on tv and in magazines.
If you want to watch a funny video that discusses celebrity selfrighteousness, then here you go. WARNING: foul language.
As for Barack,
His chances are being sabotaged before he even gets there because of his skin colour
I totally disagree. He's not being sabotaged at all. Where do you get this from? Here the media has practically performed sexual acts on him from the
beginning. He is definitely not wanting for positive attention. And this goes back to my previous point that minorities have to achieve much less than
white people to be praised in the same way.
Barack Obama is as inexperienced as they come, yet people act as if he's going to bring about the golden age. He says he's not President Bush.
That's great - I'm not either. Does that mean I automatically should be the next president? I hope not. He says he's going to bring about change.
Well in my opinion that change would be in the wrong direction.
You say your a minority but you seem stone cold when it comes to admitting that WE have to try that little bit extra.
Stone cold because I don't whine about it? I'll consider that a compliment. Like I have said before, I do think minorities have a harder time in
some circumstances than a white male would. However, minorities can rest on their laurels much longer than a white male ever could because less is
expected of them.
