Our skin is just a color and people shouldnt be judged on what that color may be!If our skins were any other color that black,white or brown would we judge eachother the way we do know???Personaly i hate people who are rasist alot of my family is mixed with crazy colors and we all love eachother,but when i go to school people are talking about other peoples skin color and judgeing them on just that fact and it makes me sick to think that people do this!!Groups are also formed on the color of our skin people tend to go with the people who look like them and then talk behing others backs!!This issue is drivin me and other students crazy...If you see this happening do something about it....

judging people by their skin color is extremely stupid. i'm an Indian and I'm brown. people have different complexions in India.. You won't believe.. people there judge beauty by the color of their skin.. anyone who is fair is considered beautiful by most people.. never mind the features!

I agree! Sometimes people I know say "She's trying to act white" or "She's acting really black: or what not. It is sick. People act the way they do because that's who they are. People judge too much. I agree with you.

The people I hang out with aren't all hispanics. They're mixes from white to black to a mix of both and all.

I agree, and it is sad that our society is still stubborn and unaccepting of our own people.

Why is it that we can accept other differences, but we have refused to be acc... (more »)

Amen. Why would anyone care about something as stupid as color of skin when you could spend time caring about important things. Like, uh I don't know, PERSONALITY, ACTIONS, SENSE OF HUMOR, INTELLIGENCE!!!!!
