***Let's please share ideas in a polite way, this topic was solemnly to discuss a concept, nothing more*** Don't get me wrong, but I am yet to comprehend the concept of "racism". Talking with the few people I know here (native americans I mean), I've been told "racism" is the fact to actually pre judge a group of people only because how they look or the color of their skin. First of all, I gotta say that I seriously think we are all human beings, we are all all equals in body and mind. While "equals" there is also the fact that physically each person is different, some are bald, fat, short, tall, skinny, etc. If there is a group of people in a line, and I have to refer to one of them, I will probably chose the most distinguishable feature to actually differentiate the person; but it seems tat some times doing that is considered racist, and I truly, deeply would like to know why? I am aware that this country had some issues with slavery and a lot of people was discriminated just because of the color of their skin, there is anger and recent on their hearts, with good reason maybe, they sometimes were savagely treated like animals or worse. But no one can deny that things are changing, no one can deny that, off course there are a lot issues to be resolved yet, but a progress is being made each day. The problem is that, few people realize that new minorities are also suffering, although in not the same degree, from the so called "racism", with that in mind, the term kinda looses meaning to me, but while the concept if fully applicable to a modest Salvadorian worker that enters a Bloomingdale's store. If you don't quite "get me", just watch the movie "Crash". And I'm not talking about Hispanic people only, but from all the new minorities.
