On Racism

All over the news there are constant accusations of racism, sexism, prejudice, homophobia, ladeedadeeda, etc. but why?! We live in a new age! Black slavery is no longer just decades in the past, it's centuries past. Our dark skinned Americans have prevalent places in society, the presidency, sports, teachers. Not just blacks, not just whites. Every race, sex, and color is represented somewhere in your hometown, and VERY rarely does anyone dislike another by the color of their skin.

Still, though...when a white man murders a black man the media immediately cries "RACIST!!!"

As a progressive society, this is something we need to change. It doesn't go away until we stop talking about it. Imagine: What if the media treated the next interracial killing like any other? Analyzes it for an underlying motive. What if it's revenge? Prestige?! Simply a guy who said he'd kill the next guy who walks through that door?! That changes things. It's no longer racist, it's just crime as it should be. The guy goes to trial, gets convicted, spends life in prison/electric chair. Wouldn't that be great?

What if we treated homosexuality the same way? Give gays their right to marriage. Why not? They're people in love they should enjoy the same rights as husband and husband as a husband and wife. It's not wrong it's equal opportunity.

Yes. I am Christian. Yes. I'm for gay/interracial rights. One of the fundamental vertebra of our country is freedom of religion, it is not my place to force my ideals on everyone.

But enough about my thoughts, what are yours?
