    Racism will never die. There will always be ignorant people and weak minded people. I hope i raise my son right to never treat anyone diffrent based off skin color.

    I can't contribute any necessary commentary to this. This video can stand on its own for what it is. Natural human interaction and instinct.

    Someday we might make it, but I can't imagine the amount of pain, loss, and sadness from the tragedy it will take to bring us together again.

    Always wondered how the world will be if things like slavery and the holocaust never happened, one race looking down on another never existed and everyone had mutual respect for one

    Just not in human nature. If not race than something else divisive.

    When we have no enemies we turn on ourselves.

    Nah this stuff is in some peoples nature. As ppl grow up we begin to question things we are taught and on our own begin to decide what we feel is naturally right and wrong to us.

    Growing up in a small town I've come to realize that racism is truly taught. I had transferred from a predominately hispanic school to a predominately white one. I still remember my first day. 17 years ago. They treated me just like anybody else. I didn't feel like an outsider. As I got older though .. their dad's ideas started sticking with them. I remember one kid over a summer went from loving rap to hating it.
    Dude started making all these racial jokes and calling me racial slurs :smh:
    I could go on.

    You mean everyone can be bigoted or prejudice. Racism is a systematic construct.

    What would make those that benefit from the system want to get rid of the system and also to right the wrongs as much as possible?

    Sadly, for me at least, that question is rhetorical. I don't think we will ever get an apology let alone reparations of any sort. Let alone a true breakdown and acknowledgement of the root cause, how deep the system has impacted all of us and dialogue on what to do. They feel like race is our problem when it's really theirs.

    Not to mention smart people are having less kids than stupid people. Stupid people have more kids to pass this hatred onto. could actually get worse

    What an inspiring video. Remember, we aren't born to be destined to go to hell. Our actions determine our fate. Love the lord, treat people with respect and kindness and you shall be accepted into eternal paradise.

    Ok i have a legit question for any of you race cats.

    Mite b a dumb question but...

    Little Children in school play with other kids no matter what race or creed.
    So they are taught racism.

    where in history did this teaching / mindset start?

    and i mean as far back as possible.
