I chose my topic to be based on Racism for this challenge, because it's something that people see a lot . Racism comes in many different forms, not just against Race, it can be against anything really. From height, to weight, to family size even, the discrimination never seems to cease, no matter what you do, someone will always be upset. I personally have only had one type of discrimination thrown at me, family size. It's not a secret that O have a big family, but I know I do, and people who see us in public, know I do, so is it really necessary for people to remind us of it? And how can people really judge a person by race, height, family size, ect. I don't know the cause for sure, but psychological studies do show, that when a human see's something they are uncomfortable with, or something they don't really understand, they tend to group together, with others who do not understand, or share the same views as them. It's a defense mechanism, which I think we can all understand, because us as human beings all do it at some point. But I personally think, that this racism is triggered by other things as well, for starters, I think someone needs to be born with a lack of empathy to become a racist in the first place, and going back to my earlier finding, that humans band together in defense of the unknown. The combination of the two is what I think brings it out, which always ends bad. Like for example, I suppose you could say I'm racist against Racists, because of their lack of empathy, because I don't understand it. I don't understand how someone could say or do cruel things to another human, over such trivial things, but it happens, so as you see, my own mixture of not understanding and lack of empathy for those who have a lack of empathy, makes me racist against those with a lack of empathy. Anyway, I also believe that people "breed" racists as well not on purpose, but Racists who have kids, install in their kids, the racism they have, without meaning to, they teach the children their racism, because even while in the womb, children are learning, and if they hear the racism in there, then when it's continues,the child grows up with those same views. Another factor in Racism is Stereotypes, stereo types often limit people's thinking, causing individuality to be shot to hell, leading to negative assumptions about people. It has also been found, that people hold their own group on a pedestal as compared to the groups around them, simply due to the fact, hat what they are ad due is considered normal in their group, and in the humans mind, normal, is seemed to be better, but there is no true normal, as everyone believes that their way of doing things is the "normal way"
Those are my feelings about Racism.



did I do that right?
