@mrdecepticonleader: it makes me sad that people treat others worse because of how they look or think

It's a bit ironic, the "Open minded" people are actually quite closeminded to others' being closeminded. Personally, I don't understand racism, or any hate toward someone with no solid basis, but it exists, always has, and unless something changes human nature, always will.

For me there's a difference between ignorance by association and ignorance by choice. I'm tired of people who are willfully ignorant and accept that as bliss. The people who are ignorant because they were raised that way but still try to keep an open mind I have hope for!

when you say "cannot accept gay people" what does that mean? I don't approve of homosexuality but have no problem with gay people or them being married. That is their business.

So what part of homosexuality do you not approve of?

All three of the things you listed apply to every single person, whether they know it or not. So I guess you hate a bit of yourself.

All the above plus hypocrits.

When it comes to racism, the one thing I hate above all else is the excuse to say the worse things in history to somebody just because they're Caucasian.

A friend once told me that there is no such thing as racism for whites.

Try saying that to the Europeans treated like sh*t when they immigrated to the states less than 30 years ago.

That irritates me too,its just as bad no matter the skin colour of the person.

@mrdecepticonleader:

On Facebook, a few of the guys I friend have the insane habit of using he "n" word in every sentence. I don't care if they're African American, it's disgusting and racist.

You don't see me yelling the "w" word for Italians in my writing, now do you?

I have seen people use that word as well,as a term of endearment.I dont use the word but have seen it used that way.So maybe its about context (?) I dont know.
