    Thumbs down discrimination

    there are all sorts of reasons why a person might recieve discrimination
    ethnicity, sex, disability, drug use etc.

    how challenging it must be to be disabled and yet put up with peoples
    stares and insecurities, or being a nice person, but people pre-judging you due
    to your ethnicity.

    have you been on the recieving end of discrimination?

    I suspect we all have in one form or another, there are varying degrees. In my experience ethnicity is the biggest discrimination in this country, even within the country itself. We joke about people from certain areas, but underneath the fun is a basic form of discrimination. Grrr getting angry now, LOL

    If we just others as people first and then worry about gender, ethniciity or whatever we might all get on a bit better.

    Very interesting post...

    Okay, I went to a ethnic-minority majority primary school (mainly Pakistani people - four English people in my class, myself included) and was ganged up on and beaten up for being English. When I moved to secondary school, the other kids found out that my family is Irish, so I was hounded for being a Paddy/Spud picker/Leprechaun etc. My uncle, who lived in Germany at the time, came to visit and one morning, took me, my brother and sister to school in his Merc (with German plates) and we were hounded for being Nazis!!!

    I used to hang out with a friend of mine that 'came out' and it didn't make any difference to me; we still stayed mates and hung out together. I even went around some gay clubs with him just to have a few beers and a craic, and nobody bothered me. I was called 'gay boy' for it but at that point in my life, I just shrugged it off and didn't give a toss really.

    Kids are cruel and it's disgraceful how much discrimination goes on. With all this in my past, I understand that being discrimitory towards for their race, beliefs, sexuality, etc. is a very cheap shot and personally, we are all entitled to enjoy life whatever cards we are dealt with. We do have a craic about who comes from where and as long as it's in playful jest and nobody is offended, it's fine.

    Its things like this that make me ashamed to be Irish at times, don't these people realize that at least 1 member of their own (Irish) family is a foreigner in another country, Sorry Anna, we are not all like this

    sometimes the police are hassling me and my friends
    just because we may be a little mistrustful of rat race etc
