This thread is not intended to hurt anyones feelings and racism will not be tolerated, as always. I'm just interested in knowing which races you people all are, since I have absolutely no idea.

Dude! What are you trying to do?

This is the second topic you have made that looks like its sole purpose is to start a flame war.

I will not share my race, because it really doesn't matter. I encourage everyone else to just completely ignore this.

We don't need a race war on this forum. kthnxby

Is this not clear? I don't know why I'm being accused of trying to start a flame war.

Are we not grown up enough to be able to share this kind of information without anyones feelings getting hurt? I'm white btw.

Read my last post in the other dumb thread you made. And find out why no one should post here.

Exactly Apollo, why can't we just continue on this forum without separating our selves.

This is the internet for gods sake people come here to escape real life. Can we please leave the internet as a escape from the real world? What does it matter? I am a forum user just like you.

We should be able to talk about race if we want to without other people calling the topic "dumb". Discussing race isn't wrong. Asking what race someone is over the internet isn't wrong.

If you don't think race is important, then why do you think talking about it is dumb? Alot of discussions and threads in this section are unimportant.

Would you be saying the same thing if I asked what hair colour people had?


And jake, who said that revealing your race would seperate you from anyone? I certainly wouldn't feel any seperation after finding out peoples races. Are you saying that you would? If not, then I don't see why you have such a problem with this thread.

I have a problem with this thread because some people do have a problem with some races, and sexuality's and I think its great to talk about these types of things when its one on one, but in a open convo like this we can't tell what might happen.

From my experience on this forum these types of topics contribute nothing good.

I'm straight. No, I don't give a damn if you're gay, bis, trans, asexual, pansexual, whatever. I'm with Alex, though. Don't throw it in my face. I don't run around and beg for straight pride parades. I have many friends who are gay, and they're my friends because they're not running around flaunting it. People who throw it in my face that they're gay, bi, whatever, just piss me off. It's the same way as racism.

Why does it matter what we identify with? Talks like this only further seperate the gap between people. We wouldn't identify races or sexual orientation if people just stopped talking about, and stopped caring about it. There is no difference between a black guy and a white guy. Or a gay guy and a strait guy. Not one lick.

I'd like to quote a book I'm reading for my speech class:

"...Unless you live in a culture that recognizes such differences as significant, they are socially irrelevant and therefore, in a way, do not exist. a "black woman" in Africa, therefore, who has not experienced white racism, does not think of herself as black. African, yes. A women, yes. But not a black woman."

-Johnson, Allen G. "Privilege, oppression, and Difference." Privilege, Power, and Difference. (2nd Ed). New York, NY: Mcgraw-Hill, 2006. p 17. Print.


The same goes for sexuality. If we do not place any significance on what sexuality one prefers, then those sterotypes and bigoted statements would no longer exist.


-Apollo



That is why. It shouldn't matter what race we are. We are all people here, and we do not need to identify to a certain skin pigment in order to categorize ourselves into more bias and possible racist sayings. When people ask me what race I am, they expect me to say "white". But I'm American. It matters not the colour of someone's skin, nor what sex they prefer.
