I haven't noticed someone here to say it except you…

And if you are proud of who you are you'll never say like this.

I don’t discrimate black poeple. I actually admire them most because they are really talented, generally speaking. We have Ne-Yo, Oprah, Dwane Wade and a lot more. They are too many to mention. Being white doesn’t necessarily mean that a person worths more respect than the black ones. I am not white neither black. I am brown. HEHEHEHEHEH!! But I don’t think color should be the basis of how we should treat people.

zikimo – I had worked in the hotels over here for many years, and I know that there are a lot of European women who are crazy about  dark-skinned  guys! Embarassed  In fact, it was a bit of a nuisance as we  often had to prevent outsiders from entering guest rooms.

I know that these taunts are hurled at players during sporting events, and this creates a lot of problems.

come on guys! I think that question of being racist 'balck, yellow, white) is overpassed. Racism actually is between poor and rich!! Look at Oprah, Oj Simpson, will smith, Mikael Jackson and other…. they are certainely black skin but their fortune (money) let them white, i mezn, they had never suffred(except when they were poor) from racism. So, admit that racism based on colour skin depends more on the number of zero after 1 you had. Thanks for accepting me as a part of yr forum.

Well, Zikimo,
according to Darwin, we’re all monkeys, so what’s the big deal? Next time you’re called that, you call them ‘white monkey’ then LOL
And I don’t know why people here act like they come from another planet and be like ‘I never heard such thing’. The fact alone that your comments sound a bit aggressive proves that, yes, there is such thing. Yes, a racist can be anyone, black or white, but a little friendlier reply to the guy’s question would’ve probably been more convincing that you’re not one yourself.

And to Loussiluna’s comment,
“Look at Oprah,.. and other … ” ,
let me remind you that even Oprah’s ‘fortune’ and influence weren’t enough to make her white at the Hermes store in Paris where she was refused entry. (google the story & see)

We just have to think that we are all even to God’s eye.
No matter what your color is, we are human created by God. I think color shouldn’t be a basis for respect, fame etc. but we should look into what the person can do for the betterment of himself and other people. Anyway, when we face God in heaven, He will not ask what is your nationality nor your race but what are the good things we did when we are still alive. Lets let God be the judge.
