Macroni and Cheese Racism By: David Rader II on June 08, 2013 @ 11:55 PM
I think everyone's racist everywhere, just to varying degrees. Sometimes for reasons that are "generally" true. For example, I heard white people like Macaroni & Cheese. Guilty. No hate is harbored with that statement, though it may generate it simply for being a racist statement, because in our society racism often carries hate. People have to look past broad stereotypes, sometimes with a leap of faith if they really have no idea how true a stereotype is. Stereotypes often exist because they have some truth to them though, sometimes unfortunately. If a stereotype isn't fully understood, it generates irrational fear which generates hate... but if we ignore the stereotypes, they may just continue. Breaking stereotypes takes two people, the stereotyped who need to change their ways and the stereotypers who may even be the stereotyped! Some stereotypes may be hard to break though. I may forever enjoy Macaroni and Cheese. Racism is a touchy subject for me. I hate it because of the hate it brings, but the best way to combat it is to understand it.
