Okay, so I watched this episode and was SICK to my stomach. I am not completely naive. I can read these boards alone and witness enormous examples of genuine racism. But watching what some of these people say and do in their reaction was so appalling. On the same token, I was moved to tears when the opposite would occur. I know exactly what I would do. What would you do? And what goes through your mind while watching this?

I hope this YouTube works. If not, the clip can also be found HERE just go down and click the link that says "Watch: Encountering Prejudice".

About Heather Rayne

I am a mom, wife, writer, volunteer, eater of food, lover of animals and avid TV enthusiast. I am opinionated, honest, compassionate and sensitive. I can also be difficult, hard headed and emotional. I consider myself to have a great sense of humor and am very attracted to that in others. I am striving to live an authentic life. I am attempting to learn how to find happiness in the now. I always have hope to be a better person. That being said - I can be vulgar, negative and even a little bitchy at times. I say what I mean and my filter is often dysfunctional. With me, what you see is what you get. I have strong opinions and am quick to speak my mind. This can cause problems from time to time but I do not ever intend to hurt or offend anyone. With that - be warned. I do hope you enjoy my site. Thanks for visiting and have a swell day.
