How Do You Handle Racism?

I was over at the Political Debate Group and found this thread:


http://www.projectwedding.com/post/list/how-do-you-handle-racism


And I responded but since there aren't a lot of posts in there I thought that I would post it here to see other reactions.


So how do you handle racism and what do you think about her situation?

You seriously have to pray for people like that and distance yourself from them. I feel sorry for her friend, because last time I checked, the President is black at 1/2. So I guess she better move? :-)

First we are usually not in that situation because someone is not going to tell us straight out they hate blacks unless they're ready to catch one ;)-


The sad part is that we expect much higher standards of behaviour from our friends and the people we surround ourselves with, so what happened to her had to be disappointing. She stood her ground and that is all that matters she handled a delicate situation well.


How do I handle racism.......... Well I usually address it. I don't like to hide behind color or the word "colorblind" If I think something is racist I will put it out there and talk about it. If I think someone is hinting around something that comes off racist I will call them out. That is just my personality as I would rather know now and not have anything to do with that person then befriend a snake and have them poison me with there venom due to the color of my skin.


IMO, I think people who try to hide from racism or not teach there kids about it will never get anywhere in this world.
