Ignorance Isn’t Limited To Any Single Color Or Ethnicity

Bad people come in all colors.

This is a very interesting article that shows racism or prejudice can sometimes be just as bad from minorities as from Whites. Thanks to Interracial Family Organization for posting this as I saw it on their Facebook page.

Here is an excerpt of the story:

The student stabbed Ryan in the back with a mechanical pencil and walked away. There was no explanation, no words exchanged at all. But Ryan knew why it happened. Scared to tell the teacher, all Ryan could do was to go to the bathroom to wash off the blood.
It was all because of the color of his skin, his mom, Gail Rodriguez said. He was often the only light-skinned student in his classes, which were predominantly black. Ryan, who is half white and half Puerto Rican, was called names like “stupid white cracker.”
Minority students around the region told Hearst Connecticut Newspapers they have been called n—–, or terrorist, or told to go back to the other side of the border.

Here is a link to the full story.
