we all know that racism is wrong, prejudice is bad, bigotry should be condoned.
but to fight such a negative thing i think we need to show what the extremes do.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marwa_Sherbini
that story is depressing. the fact that the police shot the wrong guy is even more sad.
in the wake of the 911 attacks and various other extremist islamic forces there has been wide spread islamiphobia
a different case was when obama was running
the KKK wanted him to win so they could "openly wage" a race war.
there was also that episode of 2 rednecks that planned to kill over 100 children at a predominately african american school then try and kamikaze into obama's motorcade.
try to keep the extremes of racism in somewhat recent news as i hope everyone is aware of the holocaust and at a lesser extent the kurd killing, the native killing, the aztec killing, the chinese killing.
this isnt a very optimistic thread but the stories should be told.
