Why Lovers Can Be Friends I find myself asking the question is there a friend in that of a lover, or is the bond between friends completely incapable of being incorporated into a bond between lovers. Is it possible to have a friend in a lover or does the word lover itself mean that of a different type of degree of intimacy all together. If a lover should possess the qualities of a friend while also possessing the qualities of a lover then why do we so often join the two words in order to give th

Finding a cure for this would be a major step towards ending racism in general. No one has ever thought of a solution yet, and racism will be strong as long as there isn't one.

Slavery - Southern White Slaveholder Guilt
Slavery - Southern White Slaveholder Guilt Guilt is an inevitable effect of slavery. For no matter how much rhetoric and racism is poured into such a system, the simple fact remains that men are enslaving men. Regardless of how much inferior a slaveholder may perceive his slaves, it is obvious that his property looks similar, has similar needs, and has similar feelings. There is thus the necessary comparison of situations; the slaveholder is free, the slaves in bondage - certainly a position t
