Why are you so eager to know? Is it your business?

You're never going to leave are you?

You're in love with the idea of being a victim.

You don't want happiness.  I feel sorry for you.

Change has and is happening.

It takes generations to change timbatu.  We pass down our values to our children from generation to generation.

With each generation there has been more progress in attitudes.

I have seen great change since I was a child.  It just doesn't happen overnight like you want.

If the US EEOC and local government agencies are willing to confront discrimination, it can be stopped immediately. The reason why discrimination is so rampant is because the US legal system protects the culprits.

Discrimination won't stop until people change their attitudes.

We have all kinds of laws to protect minorities and it still doesn't stop it. Why?  People's attitudes have to change.

That is where you need to start.  

When we all recognize that we are more alike than different, there will be less discrimination.

You don't help this by constantly putting people into camps of 'us' vs 'them'.  

Instead of whining about injustice - SHOW people that you are no different than they are.  That is how you end prejudice.

My sociology professor was big on saying that generally speaking, we put people into camps of 'like us' and 'not like us'.  The people who we think are 'like us' we think more positively about.

And I'm not suggesting that people give up cultural differences - I'm talking about coming together on core values.

We all go through basic things that are universal.  We all feel the pains of growing up, finding love, having families & loving our families.  This is what we need to emphasize.
