Skin Colour

Post by Claire on Wed Jul 04, 2018 4:03 pm

Do you think we see it as much as previous generations do?

I told someone in my work that I think they look like Tyra Banks - she said "but she's black J!".

I knew that but this person looks so like her except for that one thing.

Do you think it will ever be like hair colour?

I think people will be less aware as time goes by, but not for a while. I also think it depends on your location. If you live in a tiny village with no other cultures you will notice it more if an ethnic family moved in.

I hope so. I find other cultures interesting but if people saw a person rather than their colour, even if it's in a good way we will have progressed.

Things have improved over time which is a good thing.

People see all sorts of things though people do notice and 'see' hair colour.

Noticing and treating people differently because of it is a different matter though. If the person is decent treat them that way, if the person is an arse treat them as an arse or alternatively just ignore them.

It really isn't Rocket Science.

Viva la difference. We should all celebrate how we are so similar and yet so different.

Are you ever not going to notice someone's piercing blue eyes or soft sea green eyes or sink into some melting brown eyes.

My best mate of 50 years and I were like twins only I was not black. Very Happy


I actually think racism is worse today than it was in the 70s. But that, IMO, is by design

That's interesting, by who's design? Who's making it intentionally worse than it needs to be.

Its done to divide us, black V white, Men V women, poor V rich, working V unemployed etc and so on

Media and government always pushing fear porn always trying to pit people against each other. When we are separate we are easier to control and conquer

Ah, I get your point.

This is kind of linked, I have an older family member who swears by the fact that those sitcoms from the 70s that are now deemed racist by many doesn't actually help anything. I've never seen the one particular show this family member is referring too.

But the black actor is in Eastenders these days. Apparently the black people and the white used to call each other names in this show in a funny manner, and according to my family member most people in wider society at the time didn't think anything of it, that includes black and white people.

So sometimes making mountains out of molehills doesn't help is this family members thoughts, and they may well have a point.

Media and Governments can be prone to doing just that as you're saying.

Those programmes (love thy neighbour and Alf Garnet etc ) were not promoting racism but laughing at the racists, the racist always looked stupid and came off worse, I never got how so many could not see it.

I was walking behind a family a while ago, the only thing i really noticed was how long, shiny and beautifully braided the 3 girls and their mums hair was.

It must take hours of work to keep it like that, i was well impressed.

I don't care what colour people are, or where they come from. If they treat me with respect I return the courtesy.

It's how I was brought up.

Unfortunately not everyone has been brought up that way.
