    Wow, this clip is the absolute truth.

  4. Fantastic 😍💋 💝💖♥️❤️

  5. Exactly … it’s when you try to correct a situation and someone gets offended or defensive; that’s a pretty good indicator they’re racist. Unwilling to listen.

    • Your a Fool ” Unwilling to listen ” is NOW RACIST.

    • Ignorant means not knowing. Hating someone means you don’t want to make a change.
      I do talk to people and I don’t even know their name sometimes. It never came up. The people I worry about the most are the people who stalk me in the Costco parking lot who want to pray for me or the prostitutes for jesus I used to see in the shopping mall. 😡

    The only thing I separate by color is my laundry

  7. If you think racism isn’t a problem in America, congratulations! You’re part of the problem.

  8. Appeal to the good people
    Peace, mercy and blessings of God
    I am your sister, Umm Salem, from Palestine, Gaza Strip
    I entered and placed this appeal
    In order to ask for help and to extend a helping hand from the good people
    I have four children, a girl and three children. We do not have a breadwinner but God and good people, and there is no work
    And I live in a rented house
    Here in the Gaza Strip conditions are very difficult
    From my need, I went to ask good people for help so that I could provide my children with food and drink and save the house rent
    May God last you, but I have all the respect and appreciation
    I wish you happiness and abundant livelihood

    Please who can help contact the number

    Racist spew racisms like this guy in the video. Only thin g they can feel important about in their little lives.

  13. I’m afraid racism isn’t going away anytime soon , it’s a product of the fall which is more of a spiritual problem than sociological . It’s a condition of the heart , as a caucasian born in the late 50’s I saw things much different than most of my peers. I didn’t identify myself as just a white , but a human being and saw ppl as the same. After all , aren’t we told that God made man in His image and isn’t He the Creator of all things ?
    At five , I witnessed the assassination of Pres. JFK …As well as seeing images of white ppl in dark uniforms w/ dogs chewing up black folk and getting sprayed w/ high pressure hoses …it was a horrific sight.
    I would hear my mother’s ppl make racist remarks , it made me feel ashamed them being my relatives. I’m mostly of European decent w/ 1/16 Cherokee blood , I started identifying myself as Cherokee and began despising my European lineage. Left the Mormon church because of it at 16 after waking up 4 yrs. prior.
    I had no idea what it was like to be discriminated against because of my complexion , but I knew how it felt when seeing and hearing it …Sad for ppl of color and shame for looking the way I do , I have to SMH to those that fell they have to belittle others that are different to make themselves fell better about themselves , how stupid , idiotic and down right evil.
    To hate others is to hate ourselves and the One that created all things.

  14. I appreciate your point of view …🤙

  15. When I moved to the segregated US, I was asked numerous times to fill out ‘my race’ on Federal, State and local forms. Can you imagine being asked such ainappropriate, inconsequential and idiotic questions (unrelated to the matters at hand) such as whether you are ‘black, latino, white…’? I REFUSED and was then told ‘just fill in white, you can pass’. DISGUSTING.

    Wow. That was ridiculous.

  17. Black people cry so much, clean up your hood before you cry about racism. For real.

  18. To win big in south, go with progressives!
