The cause of racism is often fear of the unknown - lack of knowledge about other cultures. Travel, explore and learn - open your mind.
I will ALWAYS, ALWAYS, reblog this every time it comes up on my blog. This is the BEST statement, I’ve ever seen.
I really love this. So many are dead-set on the view that people cannot better themselves but that simply isn’t true. Everybody deserves a second chance and everybody has the ability to better themselves.
Part of what I like about this is that the hatred was solved by kindness. Everyone he meets is nice, or at the very least decent. Of course we know it doesn’t work this simply in real life - he probably would’ve been cruel to quite a few people, and vice versa upon learning about his racism, but I think in terms of smaller-scale issues this kind of scenario is totally plausible (since I fear a member of a group as powerful and frightening as the KKK or the Nazi party would probably take a bit more than kindness to change their ways).
A homophobe finding out her best friend is gay and subsequently meeting all of his really nice queer friends, with none of the “political agenda” or “perversion” she’d assumed they would have. A sexist being sent to a summer camp populated by mostly girls, and learning very quickly through campfire discussions that their plights of catcalling and sexual harassment aren’t nearly as rare as he’d once thought. These are things that can and do happen.
Nobody’s mind was ever changed by meanness or a snide tone.
Right now, 500 light years away from Earth, there’s a planet that looks a lot like our own. It is bathed in dim orangeish light, which at high noon is only as bright as the golden hour before sunset back home.
NASA scientists are calling the planet Kepler-186f, and it’s unlike anything they’ve found. The big news: Kepler-186f is the closest relative to the Earth that researchers have discovered.
It’s the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star—the sweet spot between too-hot Mercury-like planets and too-cold Neptunes— and it is likely to give scientists their first real opportunity to seek life elsewhere in the universe. “It’s no longer in the realm of science fiction,” said Elisa Quintana, a researcher at the SETI Institute.
But if there is indeed life on Kepler-186f, it may not look like what we have here. Given the redder wavelengths of light on the planet, vegetation there would sprout in hues of yellow and orange instead of green.

Melkor: Oh, hi, Mairon. [blows his nose] I’m cryin’ because I’ve got these two ice cream cones, but I only need one! [cries] I don’t know what to do with the other one! [cries then stops and looks at Mairon and cries again]
Mairon: I’ll eat one of those ice cream cones for…
Melkor: Don’t say it! [Melkor spots the eel that took Mairon’s ice cream] There’s the guy who took your ice cream. Don’t you want it back?
Mairon: Ice cream! [gets up and runs behind Electric Eel]
Melkor: Listen, you! My friend’s got something to say! [Electric Eel turns around]
Eel: What, who said that? Was it you? [talking to Mairon]
Melkor: Tell him off, Mairon. Assert yourself!
Mairon: That’s my ice cream cone!
Melkor: Great! Now let him have it!
Mairon: You can have it.
Eel: Say, thanks!
Melkor: No! [jumps behind Mairon] I’ll show ya how! Hey, pencil neck! [Eonwe turns around] Yeah, you, fly over here! [Eonwe walks over to Mairon]Surrender that ice cream cone or every waking moment for you will become a swarming torrent of pain and misery! [Eonwe throws ice cream on Mairon’s face and runs away crying]
Mairon: Hey, that guy was crying!
Melkor: Those were tears of joy I told you! He was happy that you were assertive!
Melkor: You see how wonderful life can be, when you’re maniacal?
Mairon: Uhh, I thought it was called assertive.
