The fear of difference.

The excessive appearence-addiction (giving too much credibilty to appearence).

Exactly Shokin. 8) It sometimes isn't even about the differences in skin colour. It can be whether you wear glasses, or fat or skinny, you wear the right clothes with the right labels etc. People discriminate over all sorts of stupid things. :roll:

But mostly people discriminate over culture, not skin color.

Well, sometimes I really don't understand why people have prejudice against people of different colors. I have a couple of black friends suffered from ill treatment from others when they were trying to find a job. Does the color have anything to do with how my friends work? Nobody can choose his or her color when he or she is born, right?

hi every body, :lol: this is my 1 participation with u in this forum, and i like 2 add sth since i like this topic. as far as im concerned, if all world has the same ideas as the members of this forum , i think that we will live in peace and happiness. but unfortunately there are alot of people who don't respect others especially people of different skin color,or blacks, who suffer alot of humiliation not only in foreign countries but also in their own country, or some times in their neighborhood.
i wish to be an active member in this forum :wink:
thank you.

Respect and tollerance.

Sounds so easy, doesn't it! But there are many people who don't don't follow such utopian ideas. Then what do we do?

I guess, teach by example is the first step. Teach your children and those around you is the second step. Maintain the idea that we are different, that different does matter, and that different is good. Then, hope there is a chain reaction from one generation to the next and so on.

I find that it is too normal when walking or going to cinema with my friend who is diffrent with my skin color. At that time, if someone looks at me or even glance at me, then it seems that he or she is too old and backward in recent society.
