Sometimes I just give up hope for some people.  
Ugh. I hate getting in debates with people. I know I probably shouldn't, but I do it anyway. My sister posted on Facebook that if any of the people on her friends list were racist, she wanted them to delete her. Perfectly reasonable, I feel. Then a girl gets on and starts talking about how racism is perfectly okay, because it's just somebody's opinion. She told us that we were being closed minded for not just accepting racist people. Then her cousin started messaging my sister with the same tripe. She actually said that it was narrow-minded to not accept racist people. I have to wonder sometimes if people even realise what they write. Sometimes I wish I could let these things lie, but I can't. If there's one thing I can't stand, it's prejudice. I have to say, though, I've never been told before that I was a bad person because I wasn't racist. It was a new experience, anyway.

I see. I guess they took it as a personal attack. It kind of could be taken that way, but they definitely overreacted. And anyway, they are free to express their opinion but others are also free to judge them.

(I don't think so. I joined recently and have mostly been lurking. I found this journal while looking around and just thought it was interesting. Nice to meet you by the way.)

Nice to meet you too. I've had a journal for years, and I'm still mostly a lurker.
