    Color is overrated. I think some people need to get over it.

    i agree but color of skin tone is in the eyes of the beholder
    it shouldn't matter but it does ...why is the answer we all seek
    everybody has their reasons

    maaaaaaaaaaaaan :eek:/

    Skin color is something most folk base their judgement on. It's bananas. Cuz really, at the end of the day people are going to do what they want to do and be with who they want to be with. Why other people get so bent outta shape about it is beyond me. Each of us is our own individual therefore we have the right to make our own decisions. I'm a product of two people disregarding skin color. If my parents were color crazy then I wouln't be here.

    We as humans have too many differences to sit arouund and nitpick. When it comes down to love then I say go for it. What you got to lose?

    In the grand scheme of things, and to the right people, color doesn't make a dang bit of difference, story, if I'm readin what you're sayin the right way. I dislike the statements against white people as much as the ones against black people. Ya just gotta pick the right peeps to hang with, naimean?

    I don't think color matters. Friendships or relationships can go sour no matter what color the other person is. Even people who truly love their race and are proud to be what they are shouldn't down anyone or judge anyone because of their color. That's just ignorant. There's is beauty in every race.

    I do wonder why black people die so fast in movies though.
    Like when I saw Kill Bill Vol. and Vivica died first. We all know she would've put a boot to Uhma's "you know what" if her daughter hadn't come home from school. :spin:

    Color should not be an issue though.

    I think that color is not that important it's the heritage and beliefs that's important.Some people do over exaggerate it and some people just push it aside.I notice what happens and state the facts deal with the problems and except the compliments:wink:
