Someone please explain...Why is is that if a black caribbean or african is in a room full of white people then they will feel fine and be sociable, but, if a white person is in a room full of black ...



I have a wonderful picture of a dark skin person. He is a nice person. Since your post is about dark skin person(s), I thought it would be appropriate for me to post those pictures here for the viwers. I hope you don't mind.

In my city, we are not scared or intimidated by any black or white people. In general, they all can get along well in the social situation.

At work is different, people get annoyed if someone repeately step on their toes, may the person be white, black, brown or yellow, they will come down on him/her very hard. Let's play hard ball and have some funs! Yes, lots of scary stories to tell. Many people (white, black, brown, yellow and red) got intimidated and pissed. But, that's at work.

I started this discussion to try and understand why colour is of such importnace to people. someone having darker skin can open the doors for predjudices and misinformed stereotypes. It works both ways though and those with lighter skin will undoubtedly experience problems in certain areas of the world. but why those of lighter skin seem to be more frightened of those with darker skin i do not understand.

I have never felt intimidated in a room full of any kinds of people.....

I think to understand the feelings of mis-trust of any race is to understand the people who feel that way...........Obviously many of us don't have a problem with race.

There will always be mis-trust of other races and like they say, "people fear what they don't understand".

Why don't you not worry about it and question it when it happens. Fear of one race or another is universal so there is much to choose from when it happens. In the mean time, enjoy our company and feel comfortable that anyone of any color is welcome here. If they prove themselves to be unwelcome, it is their own doing and not that of our community of races on the forum.
