“ O Mankind! Most certainly, it is We (God almighty) who have Created you all from a single (pair) of a male and a female. And it is we who have made you into nations and tribes, that ye may recognise each other (not that ye may despise each other). Verily, the noblest of you in the sight of Allah is (He who is) the most righteous of you. „
In addition, on the following Koranic verse, it indicates that Islam recognises that all human races speak different languages: “ And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the variations. In your languages and your colours; verily in that are Signs for those who know. „
Muhammad's statements on racism ]the Prophet said in his last sermon: “ All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over a white - except by piety and good action. „
This is a great piece. I'm not saying this to be racist, but we do not have many blacks, hispanics, ect. at my school. Two new kids that moved here are black, and they straight out said that they prefer hanging out with white girls, because the black girls at my school are 'bitches'. This actually made me laugh. Also, I think its sad that people automatically think of white people as the bad race and what not. Just because theres that handful in each race that discriminates, it doesn't mean everyone on that race does that. Everyone is different.
Recently (like... I guess two or three weeks ago, I guess.) at my school, I was sitting near some people (who I think are my friends) who were talking about "white bitches on the court" and then, a few minutes into their rant, they realized I was sitting right there. So they started apologizing "Not you, you're different!" and then one of them asked me if I like black people or white people. I tried to tell them that I didn't care, but they said "Say black people!" so I said black people, and then they said (I don't know if they were joking or not.) "Good, otherwise I would have come to your house and beat you up." Yeah. This kind of thing happens A LOT where I am. -- Icon made by *AcidKitty3
Almost all the African American kids at my school hang together and hate on all the white kids. They refuse to be your friend and always make slang terms. They always complain about how white don't like them... maybe they should look the other way.
SO F*CKING TRUE This is a issue that have existed quite a while in some countries, and those who try to expose it/fight it... are marked as racist! Very goodconcept that is easy to understand and well made!
I wouldn't call it 'reverse racism' -- there's nothing reverse about it. It's just regular old racism. In fact, every group of people in the world has distrusted and disliked every group they ever encountered that wasn't like them. It's just that white people have innovated new technologies throughout history, built up their civilizations so powerfully that they've dominated every other group they've come across.
It's no wonder then that every other group, and a large handful of white people too, are racist against white people. We always gang up on the one at the top and try to pull them down to the bottom with the rest of us.
This is very late, but I appreciate your concept. No one ever thinks that whites are being discriminated against just as much as blacks. My sister was watching that Tyra Banks show a few months ago, and she had this episode about racism. But all her "racism" was pointed at white people. She never once mentioned that other colors can be racist as well. It was like she was saying that all whites are racist, but no blacks, hispanics, etc, were even capable of it. Double standard. Love your pic.
Oh, most people realize that everyone is racist. But it's to the advantage of non-white people to insist that only white people are (or ever can be) racist, and most white people have been so beaten down over the past 30 years that they won't speak even speak up for themselves anymore lest they be called villains just for standing up for themselves.
You're right you know, and those who use it to their advantage, often get away with it. I am white, I have many black friends now, but when I was small, there was a black girl who decided that she did not like me, and told the teacher I was racist to her. They believed her because she was black, and did not want any "incidents", so my reputation was ruined. But I don't hate black people. She was just one jackass. But there are many like her, who are actually racist, and do things to cause trouble. And right again, most whites will not say anything, as they don't want a backlash against them. Its very sad, and certain media, like Tyra Banks, doesn't help either. She actually had an episode about racism, and showed a group of people a bunch of pictures of different races. However, although the panel of people were all racists, she only focused on what this white person thought, and not what any of the others thought, and made it out to sound like all whites were racist, just because the one on her panel actually was.

Exactly, people seem to think that white people cause sadness/harm to black people today. COME ON. That was freaking in the 18 and early 1900s, we're not in the 20th century anymore. Black people today have as many rights as everyone else. It wasn't US, it was our ANCESTORS. TT I'm glad someone finally pointed that out.
