Why does racism still exist?
As a black man, it bothers me when something happens in the black
community and it gets blown out of proportion. Example #1, over the weekend in Queens, NY a
black man was killed when the police used 50 bullets to shoot up his car. Example #2, last
year, also in NY, a black man was beaten up by 3 white men who shouted the N word at him, but
allegedly the black men were in the area to steal a car or car radio. A couple weeks after this
incident, 3 black men were arrested for assaulting a Sikh man and nobody cared. So why is it
that when it’s black on black, it gets swept under the rug, but when it’s white on black, it
gets turned into a media circus?

I dont know why probly because people have no brains
As long as sin remains in the world we will continue to see these things. We must all do our best to fight against it no matter how discouraging it seems to get at times. God has a plan for all this. Take heart. :)
My sister lives in Queens, she told me about that as well as the news.
People are dumb and don’t understand black/white people…remember it goes both ways, black people don’t understand white people as much as white people don’t understand blacks.
I’m not sure the real reason why whites get better treatment, that is the truth in some cases, not right but the truth.
As I do recall that man is getting a fair treatment and the police are looking into it.
It still exist b/c some people believe that are superior than others, b/c that’s how they were raised, and b/c they believe in the bible (it says that we should stay with our own race or something like that). But me I’m not racist I believe that I’m not superior than anybody else, I was raised that everyone should be treated the same no matter the color of your skin, and it shouldn’t matter if you are from a different race if LOVE each other then it shouldn’t matter the color of your skin.
the whole racist thing is so stupid. we’re all people no matter what color of skin you have. we all have feelings. its not like your dont just cause your skin is black.
scorpio, the bible says no such thing. All things were created for God. God created us all in all beautiful colors, sizes and shapes. I’m sad that you have the impression there is anything racist in His word. I believe the bible wholeheartedly and can tell you, He sent His son to the world not just for one color or race. God bless.
there was a time when black on white was the theme for a media circus. Before Dr. King and the 60’s, things were way different. Any white on black was excused. Any black on white was a circus. Are these circuses being fed by our “wonderful” media with the attitude of “If it bleeds, it leads.” We are living in a era of change, good or bad. We, as humans must get involved with perpetuating the good and eliminating the bad. Power to the people!
Well, all things aside from your religious beliefs, the truth is that it is childish and mostly immature to prejudice people, especially when they simply didnt pick their skin color…. should we start killing people because they are albino???
See what i mean…. and yeah, its pretty sad that it still occurs…. we must fight this, and the best way there is, education people!!!!!!!!! black, yellow, brown, red, white, green, fuscia, perpetual velvet rose, you name it…
I am not at all racist but after a recent trip to the city (sydney) I can see way there is tension. It is a supprise to me from the country to see the true face of Australia.A racist person would dislike this.That is why they suffer most in times of change.I love all nationatilities but think the schools neen to educate on simple customs. By learning to respect other peoples customs we can then expect them to respect our own
Would a ritch man who stole a loaf of bread be punished equal to a homeless man
First of all speak for yourself because i know your not black, but its not the point. what makes you think we dont care about the black on black crime. (crime has no color , crime is crime ).but 50 bullets was out of proportion c’mon 50 your stupid for sayin someshit like that.
you think shooting 50 bullets aiming at 3 to 4 people. you are actually gonna say that it was ok. as for that man that was ellegedly trying to steal that radio an arrest would of been appropriate but to beat him and called the “n” word .
let me guess that blowed out of proportion to right?
anyway im 16 years old n im saying (crime is crime , no matter what color you are).
cuz us white guys are jelouse of all those big black sauseges stealing our white women. hahahahaha
on a seriouse note 50 bullets are alot… think of how many clips u have to go through in order to get that many into 1 damn car…. people need to just build a bridge & get over it
hi i live in uk greater manchester what can i say im confused! im a white female married to a pakistani male we have been together for 10 years and have 2 kids im acepted by whites as myself, im acepted by pakistanis as the wife of a pakistani man. But im not by whites as the wife of pakistani or by pakistani,s as myself people are two quick to judge i never look at my husband and think of any colour or my kids were all equal,UNTIL WE LEAVE THE HOUSE!!!!!!
Racism still exists because hatred still exists. Eliminate hatred and you could eliminate racism. Easy, huh?
I am a chinese girl living in England, people haven’t been racist to me, however it does happen especially in the U.S. I am not saying it’s everyone, just a little proportion. This happens because we are human, therfore sinful. IT IS NOT FAIR TO JUDGE ANYONE BY THEIR RACE!
i am a white girl from the usa i think racism she be no more
Racism is ignorance and i know this for a fact. I am an african american female and i see alot of it throught out my daily life. People dont understand us and i will admit sometimes we dont understand the white race or any other race in this world. But we are all human. We have the same body parts and functions. We just have a different skin color. Those who hate on us it’s just because they’re scared and most wouldnt even dare say a word to our faces. Hopefully one day we can all be as one and everyone will love each other equally.
Why does racism still exist??
Racism is stupid.Everyone is equal.
I am 16 years and i agree with whoever said it before. We dont get to pick our skin color so why are people mean to other people for something they cant help? We are all created equal and i thing there will be racism in the world until we get that we are equal. That, or we all paint ourselves the same color.
i agree it is time we move forward racism is old news. We were all created the same so why does being raised differntly matter.
well dont feel bad.. dont allow yourself to be stereotyped (even if it is your race) YOU know your not a bad person and neither are people of african american descent. you know whats right and whats wrong so do not allow stereotypical situations bother you
