How stupid?
by Free Thinker , 14, female

April 29, 2000

Dear Diary,
Thankfully I have never experienced racism, but I have seen many examples of it during my life and I have this to say: Racism is the most ridiculous form of prejudice (all forms of prejudice are ridiculous, but to me, racism is especially so) that exists in the world today. How one human being can judge another based on their race is beyond me! I do not know how racists have managed to justify their pathetic views for so long, and why they still exist in today's multi-cultural society, let alone are able to find people who share their views and actually want to join societies (such as the Ku Klux Klan) that are basically dedicated to the continuation of hate towards other races. To me, these people are totally ignorant, and do deserve a place on this earth.
