    Why does it have to be a "dark" hole???
    I wanna sleep with you forever
    And I wanna die in your arms
    In a cabin by a meadow where the wild bees swarm

    And I'm gonna love you like nobody loves you
    And I'll earn your trust making memories of us

    Seriously, I just try to treat people of all races with same dignity and respect that they afford me.

    If they pull an attitude towards me, well, it definitely has an effect on my relationship with them.

    Maybe it's an unspoken thing, like "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

    Is that so hard to comprehend?

    Yes these things happened in the past, but it doesn't change the fact that it did happen.

    Racism, one form or another, is found in all cultures...

    The real question is: what was the intent of this thread?

    Is it another - woe is me the poor old white man - thread?
    Ok, that does it. I have bit my tongue long enough on this subject. Time for a history lesson.

    Newsflash! Blacks were not the only people told they couldn't go certain places or apply for certain jobs within the last 100 years. Until the day my grandfather died, he had a sign in his home office to remind him of how biased this world can be. "Irish need not apply." Turned away because of the way they look. Sound familiar? Red hair and a thick accent stand out in a crowd just as much as skin tone. Want to know how he got over it? He made something of himself instead of sitting back complaining that he wasn't given a fair deal. Because guess what-LIFE ISN'T FAIR!

    I experience racism whenever people hear my ethnicity too. On the outside, I am a white female with brown hair and brown eyes that easily blends into a crowd. My background is German, Irish, and Italian. Based off of that, people assume that me and my family were Hitler supporters or skinheads(German), drunken spouse abusers(Irish), and clearly a member of the mob(Italian).

    I have no problem that you are a proud black person(don't know if you are a man or woman). I do however have a problem with the fact that you seem to think that society owes you something just because of your skin pigmentation.

    Ok, done with my rant now. Let the backlash begin.

    From Merriam-Webster: native implies birth or origin in a place or region and may suggest compatibility with it

    I'd like 40 acres too. Probably for different reasons though.
