Just my thought not trying to disrespect you or anything
thank you for your input. You are not disrespecting me at all. I have been mistaken for a lot of races. From middle Eastern to white, and once even black by a German. I have also been mistaken for being mixed between white and black. Hispanics have a huge diversity in their dna and im no exception. I have seen what you're talking about some Puerto Ricans not willing to accept their African roots. The thing is, they most likely don't want to be perceived that way and most come from ancestors that didn't experience slavery to the extent African Americans went through. If you recall Tito Trinidad, the whole island loved him more so than cotto and his skin color had nothing to do with his popularity. It was the fact that he loved Puerto Rico more than anybody. I never seen racism in Puerto Rico to the extent of US. I can never consider myself black just based off my whole family. Maybe some Taino/Indian roots. My mom is a pale Rican and my father looks straight up from the middle East with light brownish skin.

I get so tired of the bull****, just watch a basketball game....BOOM!!!!!!!!!...there it is.

Blacks don't get along well with other blacks, stats prove that.....fact. They battle among themselves and they bail on their kids. Simply facts backed up by stats.

Ok, why worry about getting along with a race? When it comes to relationships it's about the individual not race. I have buddies in every race, not a problem at all.
it's crazy how some races seem to be inclined to certain things others aren't. I do believe with practice anybody can achieve greatness in any field. My platoon Sargeant was Mexican with one lung (lost the other in Iraq from sniper shot), and he was the best runner in the whole company. That's around 150 soldiers.

Racism is very primitive, they is no room for it in the world. Strange but I can go six months without hearing or seeing any form of racism and I come on here and see it constantly.

This only from my experience while living in Connecticut.
I worked with some really sharp people in finance, several were from Nigeria, and another from Ethiopia, brilliant!

The ultra Orthodox Jews are weird.

Worry less about making people who treat you like **** feel good, worry more about doing everything you can for your own family.

Any decent God would want that from you, and you will feel better on your death bed.

If you were treated **** by some racist black people, I guess it's worth keeping in mind that they have the problem, not you, you should move on from that pettiness.

Many Japanese are racist towards other asians.
Some families wonít let their sons or daughters marry Chinese, Koreans, white guys, black guys, all foreigners.

Unfortunately, racism is programed thinking. If you see a couple of kids, I mean small children, you see no racism. Racism is something we've been exposed to and learned for years upon years and we self-teach this to ourselves, to our children, and then it spreads like a disease, a disease of the mind. Though difficult to unteach, we can do it. We're always going to have prejudices, that's natural; but we can mentally attempt to place ourselves in other peoples situations, we can utilize empathy to come to a better understanding of what it's like to be someone else. It may be impossible to literally walk a mile in another man's shoes....but we can empathize. We can relate, for that is within our capacity to do. It is the only cure.

Racism was an evil seed which was planted in order to separate peoples; it is a branch of classism. If we consider others less than, it is supposed to make us feel better about ourselves. However, hate only breeds hate and for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction....and the cycle is born. Those who feel the hate, hate the haters. Then, the children of the "haters", who may not share their parents "hate", feel the hate radiated towards them by the original "hated" and reciprocate. ..and so it goes.

To break the cycle, we need to empathize with others, try to understand the way they feel and why and then behave in such a way as to change minds in the future. This cycle of hate is centuries old and will not disappear over night. It took time to build....it will take time to dismantle. The key is to feed the beast no more....let it starve and wither on the vine.

Only those who benefit the most from the common people tearing each other apart will perpetuate such a thing. All cultures, races, and ethnicities should be proud of who they are, for we have all contributed to the whole of humanity. We have far more in common than we have which separates us. When we finally understand that and believe that and act on that, the yoke of control will be broken; and we can begin to have a better world.
