warning: this is a gripe post.
first up: racist people. my mother brought me up to be kind to everyone, no matter what creed they believed in, no matter what the colour of their skin was, no matter what sexuality they were. When I hear from one of my dearest friends (who is of Indigenous descent) that another person walked into the classroom my friend was in and said 'Ew. It smells like Aboriginal in here', I just feel so let down that it is the 21st fucking century and some of us...no, MOST of us cannot fucking get past our prejudices and see a person for what they really are.
