**** Introduction ****
This Page is dedicated to reducing racism of all kinds. Not just the black/white racism that you are used to hearing about, but racism against different religions, minorities, and different cultures.
I feel very uncomfortable of people saying "I would never marry a Catholic" or "All Baptist are going to Hell" or "The Islamic religion is evil" or "I don't want to have anything to do with her she's atheiest" or "Be careful when you go in there a bunch of black men hanging out in there" As Rodney King said:
WHY CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG
Racism is not something we are born with, but is learned. It is based in ignorance and  insecurity and limits all humanity. By speaking out against racist behaviour, we can begin to erode these learned prejudices and embrace our diversity as is our true nature.
At a pretty early age, although I couldn't articulate it, I probably believed that to contribute to racist tendencies, to tolerate it, would be to somehow aid in my own anihilation. We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value.
You and I, we are pressed into these solitudes, Color and culture, language and race, Just variations on a theme, Islands in a much larger stream.
