Racism is no good.

The reading from the new book, Black Looks by Bell Hooks was alright because it was nice to see some one's conviction about their race but I thought it was interesting that she called everyone racist. I am not racist at all. I know that everyone isn't racist but there are a lot of people that are. There are even people that tell jokes about other races. Some people would think that that is still racist but I bet some of the people that tell jokes about other races don't feel that they are racist at all. Ok, I'm going off in tangents but I figured it would be a good topic to maybe talk about.

  1. I would have to agree with you about the racist joke situation. I don't tell racist jokes but I do laugh sometimes when they are told. Then I tell those people that is very inapproprate. Telling racist jokes is a hard thing to distinguish with racism. People just want to laugh and they do not think about the repercussions. I mean look at blonde jokes, they are told every day and people laugh. That would technically be a prejudice against blondes because people think they are stupid.
