There is racism in every single country across the planet. We are humans if you are different we don't like you.

Three men outside of the summit one night called myself and my girlfriend "nigger lovers" as we walked into the establishment. My boyfriend (he is African American) ignored the comment. As we walked back out of Sidelines, the same 3 men attempted to jump my boyfriend as they spat racial slurs.

Bend is no different than any other town in this nation, in that people of color experience racism on multiple levels. We have to get past this fantasy of "Bend exceptionalism" and "Be Nice. You are in Bend."

Allowing the use of the phrase "People or color" is no different than the old term "Colored people" We are ALL colored. White is a color. Brown is a color. I for one am color blind. Meaning I dont care what color you are. I put people in two categories. Either you are nice or you are not nice.

No, I haven't.

Because I have never seen any racist act in Central Oregon. I honestly believe that too many people are trying to make situations racist that are not racist, which over all creates new problems. Perhaps our news outlets should consider reporting facts only instead of trying to make things racest.

I've lived here all my life and I have never witnessed racism. In fact, just the opposite. I have seen our community welcome POC as we have grown.

I've never witnessed it in Bend and I've lived here for 27 years. I know that it exists, as racist individuals are everywhere. However, it's certainly not rampant in our community.

No I never have and like many others on here, it is obvious the left and the media are dividing this country and making everything racist. It is just wrong!

Racism does exit. Where I grew up blacks hate Hispanics and vice versa. Blacks hate White cops. Racism is rare in CO. The real tragedy is the media incites and amplifies a mostly non existent issue for what? Money? To tear us apart to further their Marxist agendas?

I don't see it, but to be fair, I work from home and have a small circle. Sadly though, racism IS rampant even though we're not in 1940, and it's heartbreaking to hear how my friends who are brown are treated and talked to. Some in our own community. We all need to be better and expect better!

I live by faith not fear and I am so tired of all the fear mongering! The symptoms of this variant is very light, lets just get back to normal and stop letting the far left tell us what to do!

What for? The first case to arrive in the US was a fully vaccinated person. Those in Africa who have not been vaccinated have no symptoms where as the vaccinated do have symptoms although mild. "According to Assistant Minister Sethomo Lelatisitswe, Botswana"
