I'm Black, You're White, Who's Innocent

This story is about how one man feels that the nation is still racially divided. I had a very hard time thinking about what to write for this piece. I guess my agenda item is why is it that in some cases when people of different races get in arguements someone always has to pull out the race card? I feel that if people fight they fight for more than racial reasons.

I feel that they use the race card as an easy way out of things. Even if it does not mean anything to the conversation people will just relate back to race and I think its wrong.

I think that that is true, people do use race card to get out of things. An example is if someone is losing a conversation, then they could say well at least I'm not black or visa versa. I think also today that people don't say somethings they want to because the person could think they were being racist by saying that.

This is exactly what I was trying to say in class the other day. Im sick of that damn race card! Its almost as if its an excuse so people feel like they arent to blame for their actions, that they didnt do ne thing wrong, we are all just racist and out to get them! GR

I really agree with everyone. I think that the race card is just the complete easy way out. If you don't have anything else to defend yourself, it is just the obvious way to say that someone is attacking you for the wrong reasons. I also think that people may refrain from stating their opinions because they are afraid of being labeled as racist. Why do we live in America then?
