If a friend or relative makes a racist or homophobic remark, do you tend to confront them or let it slide? Are you more likely to confront them if it offends you directly or someone else who seems reluctant to speak up?
Im reading the writers block replies..
One person said that racist remaks dont bother them, unless its "out of line" and of then they'll say something. uh, RACISM IS ALREADY OUT OF LINE! The fact that you even have lines that need to be crossed before having a reason to say something is wrong.
The same person also said that homophobia was different for them because the OP is gay. They take homophobic comments personally, and they stick up for themselves. ?!
What I dont understand is, how the OP value one thing over the other. How can they sit back and allow racism to slide, when its just as bad as attacking someones sexuality. The OP is ignorant. Its frustrating!
People say they want change and peace. You want change, stop dividing everything, dont value one struggle over the other. You cant be for the gay community and allow rasism to slide. They go hand in hand, you dont get to pick and choose.
There are no sides to be taken when it comes to change.
