I have just started grade 9 and I can already see that alot of discrimination goes on in high school.

My Personal Opinnion is that Homosexuals get discriminated against the most. Then The Disabled and Mentally ill. And then the African-Americans/African-Canadians & The Asains.   Something About this is clearly wrong. What are your thoughts?. Have you ever stood up for anybody that was getting discriminated against or put down? have you ever got put down or discriminated against?  What are your Thoughts?

My Personal Opinion is not based on Experience, but I would think that it's the Same Everywhere.
I have Not been discriminated against nor did my high School have any black people, anyone openly Homosexual, and even the mentally disabled Were the ones who annoyed others most And were not Discriminated Against.

What the hell is it with capitalizing random letters? Makes no sense. And is annoying as fuck. I could discriminate against that.

Go to work; send your kids to school;
follow fashion; act normal;
walk on the pavement; watch TV;
save for your old age; follow the law.

The disabled and mentally ill. Not necessarily the extremely disabled and mentally ill, either, but rather the more subtle ones. People with ADHD, bipolar disorder, and etcetera face more discrimination than anyone.

Homosexuals were definitely the ones that people picked on, or at least made fun behind their backs, when I was in high school. I was friends with a good number of the gays, lesbians, & bi's, & it was quite disgusting to me seeing how many people just hated them so badly just because they chose to love someone that they didn't approve of. Though, it kind of went down a little bit when this jock went up to one of my friends that was gay & called him a faggot, & my friend knocked him out cold in one punch. It was quite humorous, but I felt that the people around finally got the picture. At least the majority of them did.

i've only been picked on because i'm fat. then again i don't usually enter a room shouting i'm gay so maybe i'd get picked on for that too. we had no problem of racism in my classes.

Either gays or whites are probably discriminated against the most.

Whites aren't discriminated against, they're just not favoured anymore.

I wouldn't necessarily say that, white people are discriminated against sometimes and in some places but generally not as often as other races.

Well yes, everyone is discriminated against at some point, but if you weigh examples of white privilege against examples of discrimination against whites you're going to end up with pretty one-sided results.

During my first two years of high school I lived in a little town called Fort Benton, the only ones who got discriminated against were the blacks.  When I went there I stood up for them and got the racist to stop.  However when I left one kid started up again and went as far as to put a noose in a black kids locker.  I will give props to the town though, they kicked the SOB out.

Like I was saying; whites are discriminated against but compared to others it's not that bad really.

The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.

No way, Mugabe has effectively forced all of the white people out of Zimbabwe. He could be from South Africa though. I've got friends from both countries, and the ones from SA have told me that even in private schools, whites are the minority now.
History is not something that happens to people--it is the activity of people. Culture does not dictate human behavior--it is the sum of human behavior. Technological progree is not a force of nature, either.
There is no civilization without civilizing, no capitalization without us capitalizing and capitulating.

here it's mostly turkish people who have to face racism. i think they are the most discriminated here. followed by gays. we don't have many blacks here, still people use humilating jokes/phrases very often.
in my school there aren't any disabled people. nevertheless there were some in my former schools. i think two of them had to take some shit, the other two were completly accepted in the "group".

i mostly start discussions with my schoolmates/friends if they use discriminating words, sometimes it helps, sometimes it doesn't -.-
set the differences aside and never look back again

the moment i lose my hope i die

pls correct writing mistakes ;)  ------- [?] means that i'm not sure how to write something.
