[QUOTE=Lovebug;1136372]Why do you ask?


Are you asking yourself that question?[/QUOTE


Why do I ask......to see if folks will tell the truth.


I ask myself these questions all the time, and I fall short on both counts.

I grew up in southern California where having a dark tan is a very good thing. Judging a person by the color of his/her skin really makes no sense me.
___________________
Friend Athena, I answered with a joke, and at the same time I asked an honest question (my question on what year racism was born ...)

I think the human being has his color that nature gave him.
In the south of my country we have Portuguese with darker skin, they are Portuguese forebears of the slaves that the Portuguese brought to Portugal, which I mean white Portuguese has always been tolorantes to other colors, we have Portuguese crossed with many of the world's citizens, crossed with Japanese Chinese Brazil Indians with black from Africa etc.etc. It is a wealth that is part of the great history of Portugal, yes there is racism in Portugal but it is a very tolerant racism, the Portuguese think the black worker man if he has the same profession as the white man and works the same hours he has every right to receive his salary equal to white.
My friend, I've never been to North America, but I've been to many European countries, I went to black bars and sat down on the sides of them. I drank my beer and I never had problems with the blacks, here in Portugal it's the same as I've often sat to drink beer or coffee on the brink of the blacks, and all Portuguese do so seija black Portuguese or American English French or Cape Verde Dakar Abidjan etc.etc. for us are human beings and act respect on both sides, Example I am almost distressed to die in the street appears a black doctor who can save my life, I will be racist, of course I will not be, friend we are in the era of development and time to end racism throughout the world.
The best phrase I can say is this »God created the world and nature in colors. My friend, your grandson is of color who seizes a great man when he is big if they call him black he who gives the contempt because it is the best weapon that the human being has is to give contempt, friend not all white is racist.
I'm also a grandfather. I have two grandchildren, a boy with 13 years and a girl with 9 years and I'm 59 years old, I'm 60 years old, my friend, our grandchildren are our second children, we give them more than we have often our children, because the times were different.
O. Love has no colors, love belongs to all colors, a friend hug.
.......
From the history of the USA I can say that black slavery helped the USA to be a great nation, but the real natives who are few know how to recognize, the white American immigrants who also helped, few are who recognize that the blacks helped the USA to be a great nation.
If I'm lying tell me.

Em.Português - In. Portuguese

Amigo Athena,eu respondi com uma brincadeira,e ao mesmo tempo fiz uma pergunta honesta ( minha pergunta em que ano nasceu o racismo ... )

Eu penso assim o ser humano tem a sua cor que a natureza lhe deu.
No sul do meu país temos portuguêses com pele mais escura,são portuguêses antecendentes dos escravos que os portuguêses trazeram para Portugal,o que eu quero dizer o português branco sempre foi tolorantes a outras cores,temos portuguêses cruzados com muitos pôvos do mundo,cruzados com Chineses Japoneses Indios do Brasil com pretas da Àfrica etc.etc. È uma riqueza que faz parte da grande história de Portugal,sim existe racismo em Portugal mas é um racismo muito tolerante,o português pensa o homem preto trabalhador se tem a mesma profissão do homem branco e trabalha as mesmas horas tem todo o direito a receber o seu salário igual ao branco.
Amigo eu nunca fui á América do norte,mas já estive em vários países da europa,eu entrei em bares estavam pretos me assentei ao lados deles bebi a minha cerveja e nunca tive problemas com os pretos,aqui em Portugal é igual tantas vezes me sentei para beber cerveja ou café á beira dos pretos,e todos portuguêses fazem isso seija preto português ou Americano ingles frances ou de Cabo Verde Dakar Abidjan etc.etc. para nós são seres humanos e aja respeito de ambos os lados,Exemplo eu estou aflito quase a morrer na rua aparece um médico preto que me pode salvar a vida,vou ser racista,é claro que não vou ser,amigo estamos na era do desenvolvimento e tempo de acabar com o racismo em todo os países do mundo.
A melhor frase que eu sei dizer é esta » Deus criou o mundo e a natureza ás cores.Amigo o seu neto é de cor que seija um grande homem quando for grande se lhe chamarem preto ele que dê o desprezo porque é a melhor arma que o ser humano tem é dar o desprezo,amigo nem todo o branco é racista.
Eu tambem sou avô tenho dois netos,um rapaz com 13 anos e uma rapariga com 9 anos e eu tenho 59 anos faço este ano 60 anos amigo os nosso netos são os nossos segundo filhos,damos mais a eles do que muitas vezes não demos aos nossos filhos,porque os tempos eram outros.
O. Amor não tem cores,o amor pertence a todas as cores,um abraço amigo....................
Da história do U.S.A sei dizer que a escravidão negra ajudou U.S.A a ser uma grande nação,mas os verdadeiros nativos que são poucos sabem o reconhecer,os brancos americanos imigrantes que tambem ajudaram,poucos são que reconhecem que os pretos ajudou U.S.A a ser uma grande nação.
Se eu estou a mentir me digam.

Judging by the color of one's skin instead of character. We heard that before somewhere, haven't we? Sadly, we tend to reverse this noble ambition lately.
I grew up with mixed race parents. Yes, both Mom and Dad were stuck in the middle and perhaps they sought each other out because they knew how it felt to be discriminated against from not one, but both sides. Yes, black racism isn't just a phrase. Mixed breeds, back in the day, were a big deal. Surprisingly, I am darker than my parents. According to one of my grannies "she is more like us".
Thankfully, my parents instilled in us early on that we don't judge anyone by the color of their skin, nor should we hate on those who do. Loving kindness finally broke the barrier. Parents and grands are all gone now, I am approaching my 60's. I wish they could see what is going on these days. I bet they'd wonder if we are going back in time.
Making color an issue, using "racism" as a convenience, does nothing to bring us together as a nation.

Racism only ends when every human being,
accept the differences of their similar, especially the color of the skin.

.......
O racismo só acaba quando todo ser humano,
aceitar as diferenças do seu sememlhante, principalmente a cor da pele.

Similar word is also Portuguese, we have many words that have the same meaning
Palavra similar tambem é portuguêsa,temos muitas palavra que tem o significado similar.


Portuguese words with the same meaning Similar English Similar Portugueses Word

Portuguese words » Similar - Semelhante - Igual - Parecido-Identico etc. )

Human being all the same all different.» Ser humano todos iguais todos diferentes

Racism is a sign of antiquated thinking. The answer is education.

Let's just give this a name: Christian Hypocrisy--you can prey as long as you PRAY.
Example: In 2016, 72 percent of evangelicals reported that immoral leaders could still govern ethically, which was validated when 81 percent of white evangelicals who voted last year cast their ballot for Donald Trump. They were happy to shelve their morality in order to justify electing a thrice-married, serial adulterer, casino mogul who bragged about grabbing women by the p***y and rarely goes to church ― but yeah, thanks Jesus. And then they’re ratcheting up the hypocrisy even further with the stern defense of alleged child molester Roy Moore.

We have convicted FELONS running for Congress--some are currently IN congress. I can't say for sure, but I'd be willing to BET that these FINE upstanding men claim to be Christians.

More than two dozen members of Congress have been indicted since 1980. A handful of the indictments were about sex, and one was about lying about military service. But the vast majority is about money -- specifically, members of Congress accused of accepting bribes in exchange for pulling strings on their end.

Just when you thought ethics standards couldn’t get much worse on Capitol Hill... It’s emerged that the House GOP quietly changed a rule last January to allow members to keep their records hidden from ethics or criminal investigations. Christians????

Why are we discussing the religion instead of racism? I want to know how people answer my question about racism, especially those who are sure White people are racist.

My 6-year-old great-grandson, enjoys being with people who look like him. Is he racist?

This is about human nature. Are inclined to feel more comfortable around people who look like us? This would include fat and skinny people, or people of color, or people with disabilities, rich and poor. How do we feel when we are different from everyone else in the room? How do we feel when someone who is different comes near us?
