Well this is a question some of you might have already been asked this but I want to know.
If someone is racist towards you what do you do to them?
Do you think its right to use violence to deal with racism?
Martin Luther King refused to use violence as a weapon during his Civil Rights Movement campaign. Violence is really one less thing we should ever have to use in life.
I'd typically just try to play it off or simply say something like "I'm not like that" or "so that's what you think?".
It's something that shouldn't exist, really. Race itself is annoying to think about, as it's really doing more harm than good for the world. It's just another way to separate people from other people outside of other "factors" like ethnicity, wealth, creed, etc. Separation makes it harder for humans to get along, perhaps more than anything else.
The media as well as how people are raised up are perhaps reasons why people you may or may not know will treat you with prejudice or profile you; the preceding terms make more sense after taking a course in sociology.
I know I'm not really answering your question that well, but the problem is that very few people know or want to believe that every last one of us has origins in Africa, regardless of color or any other feature corrupt and confused people want to label anyone with. If everyone knew and understood the truth about there not being an actual gene for race, it would be, well, non-existent. No matter where you go, you'll find it (even [perhaps infamously] on Chatroulette!), from home to across the globe, it's next to impossible to avoid this type of conflict.
For the longest I use to think of Eastern Asia, or Japan in more detail as the "final frontier" of the human expansion of the world, before they crossed the landbridge into the Western world, if the evidence the scientists have found indeed is 100% true about Africa being the true motherland of humanity. With that mindset, I found joy in coming across this; why Eastern Asia/Japan you may ask? Well I also found this to be the best most epic evidence of my thougts/dreams (look at the eyes!).
I think when more people see vids like this, their eyes will be as open as those of Adam and Eve in the book of Genesis, when they ate from the Tree of Knowledge (for those like myself who believe that, anyway). Quit humiliating yourself, and join me!
