To understand that it's just a biological adaptation of evolution and that's it.

well, i strongly agree with Shazzam, we are human being, so we should accept, recpect and love each other. The only difference between us is the good work we are doing in this life.

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.

It doesn't mean that hunting for blacks was ok.

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.

this discussion reminds me of something happened to me.. :?
i am closer to brown, while my younger 2 sisters have much really much lighter skin.. we were out & i was supposed to take care of them as they play.. a woman was observing us as f we were out of this planet..
in the end she came & asked what are we to each other..
and you know, i didn't like her reaction.. she went on making those sounds of surprise, and called those with her to check it...
even my sisters, though very young back then, didn't like it..
if this is what it feels like to be discreminated, i absolutely didn't like it and i don't want any one to experience it.. :cry:
still, i guess it's nothing compared to what i read in history books.. all this slavery and things.. horrible, don't you think ?? :(
