    Well I'd be scared if a Russian got on the bus; looking all bad~

    I'd turn away. >.<; They will cut me up into lil pieces, and and.. *faints* >.<||

    Well you just have to go off what ya know. If you see a Black Person in a suit. He's not harmful, nor is one in baggy pants, but when you see that gun~

    Think so yourself: "Did you have a good life?"~

    not implying that i am one.... *sweat* lol (joke sweat) im cool with everyone. its all about personality for me =)
    Basically, racism will always exist because there are people..... us humans always manage to find some fault in others, and always create methods to stir up trouble.

    I do not agree with the ideas of racism.... I still can't believe how heartless some people are when treating other races. Hmm, sometimes, I wonder if they actually think they ARE superior over other races. Because if they do, then they are sadly confused.... and even if they were superior, that does not grant them the right to look down upon others. Heck, the powerful should be helping the weak....

    first of a gangster is a gangster. a person who does bad things and acts hella ignorant. secondly. WHITE MEN are gangsters to. no i take that back you all are the gangsters. and there is no difference between blacks thank you!!! it just mean some are more iggnorant and rought than other because of there enviorment. like the ghetto. i lived there and i know how hard it is to be there. so ther eis no difference,. and the way black people dress was thought up by prisoners. to be honest i dont know why men do it but it's stupid. next i wanna lewt you know most good girls fall for the bad boys. thats another reason they dress like that. so there is no difeerence and you all ar3e gangsters we are thugs. i dont get it but there it is. and that was a dumb ass post.

    I had immersed myself in that culture. That culture accepted me, not necessarily as one of their own, but I wasn't a 'white boy' anymore. I was very comfortable in the inner city and everyone around me knew it. As such, to a certain extent, I took on the attitudes and world view of those around me.

    That's why I really feel silly about the whole thing. I was in absolutely no mortal danger at all. But I was out of my 'comfort' zone and I was seeing something that I was not accustomed to pulled out a very strange reaction. You can believe it or disbelieve it, but it really happened and I was really scared. I have never forgotten that feeling.
    what the heck!!!!!!!!? omg!!!! so you were on a bus for a sort time with blacks and you feel you came one with the culture? whooo okay!!!! ummm thats a no coment right there. if i said wjat i wanted to say. man i would get a warning.

    So... A gangster is a gangster? That doesn't explain much. And if all gangsters were simply people who do "bad" things and are ignorant, then we'd whole lot of gangsters, now wouldn't we?

    First off... Why?

    Secondly, how would you know if they were Russian in the first place? Russians, like most Europeans, are not different-looking than we are, sans a few tiny details.

    I really think racism is a tool that some people use if they fear that nation or the peoples of that nation, like some Americans are showing the Middle Eastern Peoples. Sad *shakes head. It also deals with ignorance and the ignorance of some americans is amazing *shakes head again*
