“Hating people because of their color is wrong. And it doesn’t matter which color does the hating. It’s just plain wrong.”Muhammad Ali

Racism comes in different forms, but it often manifests as prejudice against an individual’s ethnic origin or the ranking of different practices and beliefs as either superior of inferior to another. However, regardless of how racism is expressed – it is still the same form of baseless and malignant discrimination. In short, it’s just wrong, and people need to be aware of it.

A social experiment that aims to eradicate racism was conducted in Lithuania. A group of people was called in to participate in a casting call for a local advertisement. Little did they know that the casting call was not real and that they were being filmed.

The participants were asked to take a seat in the waiting area, where a dark-skinned immigrant sat across from them. The immigrant then asked the participants if they could speak and understand Lithuanian. When they answered “Yes,” he asked them to translate a Facebook message from Lithuanian to English.

A child translates the derogatory message to the man.

The reactions of the participants and what they told the man, when they realized that the message is extremely offensive and racist, made me believe that there is kindness within all of us. These people definitely restored my faith in humanity.

Watch the video of the social experiment:

Regardless of our race, ethnicity, and skin color, we all deserve to be treated with kindness and respect. We are all human beings – we have the same rights, we are capable of feeling emotion, and we possess unique individualities.

If you were a participant in this social experiment, how would you react? Share your thoughts in the comments box below, and share this story with your friends.

Abuse of women is a rampant social issue that has got lots of advocates speak up in the hopes of ending the disgusting practice. This is exactly the case of a Waffle house diner in America who saw a fellow customer verbally and physically abuse his female companion.

When the commotion on the other table got out of hand with the abusive man putting his hand around the woman's neck, the concerned diner who is a Gulf War veteran lost it.

The veteran went over to the other table to stop the commotion.

This Artist Can Make You ‘Disappear’ In The Landscape.

Can you spot what’s going on in these pictures?

Art is like beauty in such a way that people have different opinions and perceptions about what it is. What some think of as a form of 'art' may not be 'art' for somebody else. From engravings and drawings set in stone during the prehistoric period, to the modern and contemporary art today where Video, Assemblage, and Graffiti  have been considered art forms- art has definitely evolved. But regardless of the artist's style and medium, art is meant to allow the artist to express and convey their message to the audience.

Natalie Flectcher found her passion in body painting. Her work is so amazing that you'll think it's photoshopped! The talented artist has mastered this art form and was able to produce numerous portraits, including The Great Outdoors, Lost in The Landscape, and The Water's Edge series.

These 12 pictures below showcase her talent. You'll have to look closely to see where the body of the models end and the landscape begins!

At some point in our lives, we experienced being bullied and laughed at. When we felt like we don't belong and we tried so hard to fit in. It could be the end for some but others chose to stand up for what's right, to speak up and defend themselves or anyone in need just like this very inspiring story of Dee.

Desiree Andrews or 'Dee' is one of the cheerleaders at Lincoln Middle School in Kenosha, Wisconsin. She is an eighth grader with down syndrome, trying to live a normal life that she deserves.

During a recent basketball game, Desiree was performing with the Lady Knights' Cheerleading Squad but was being bullied from the stands. That was when a few players from the basketball team came to her defense as Kenosha News reported.
