In my opinion these divisions in society are there for a purpose,to divide.Its not accidental,overlooked or unpreventable,but left to fester through ignorance and fear,by those who hold power(the power behind governments).Political correctness has acted as a kind of safeguard for the bigoted,ensuring their remarks are guarded and show none of their true thoughts.Unfortunately treachery is the quickest and easiest way to attain most goals in this world.
Even the history revealed to us shows rule and divide as a key,if not the key,to maintaining a position of power,ensuring continuance rather than change.Racism is and always has been a very effective way to split people,not because it has any rational basis,but because its something the ignorant can determine as easily as the educated,we all have skiin colour of some kind.So racism needs no nurtured hate to be seeded,it relies on its appeal to a wide and,in my opinion,readied audience who are always in society,due to the authorities real ambition which concerns only themselves and their benefits,not in educating people to the truths of our existence.
I believe you would do the same,because we both recognise each other as fellow human beings,earthlings,rather than the often patriotic spiel used for control. :)
Racism is a sign of a weak and poorly reasoning mind. Doesnt matter the ethnicity of the person. What i find odder is people who actually are not racist, dont really caree about someones origins, but joins in all the jokes and placates their peer group to avoid being the odd one out. There is no logic behind a dislike for an entire ethnic group or skin-tone. That is ultimately the truth of racism, humans are largely illogical despite the possess the most advanced mind ever evolved. I count myself most fortunate despite my community i was raised in a family that was utterly devoid of judgment ba<x>sed on colour.
Have you ever thought they might just hate everyone?
Obama and all of the people who voted for him because of his race are rabid, foaming at the mouth, hardcore, racists. The color of your racism is no excuse.
That's not what I said. People who vote for or against someone becuase of his race are racist. A lot more people voted for Odumbo because of his race than voted against him because of his race. Those people are RACIASTS.
Yes, all those who voted for Odumbo and against Romney because Odumbo is black are racist. Personally I was irritated that the media attacked Herman Cain until he dropped out. He would have been the best candidate for the Republican Party.
You are most definitely a racist..phuquehead!
Maybe they just use it as a cover to prevent catching flak from a racially homogenized world that has left most of them behind.
I'm an American born Cuban married to an American born Canadian French woman. When I was in the army, my complexion confused some Caucasians and they spoke quite openly about minorities around me. Then would change up their phrases when around others. I honestly think it is just a cover. By the way, I joined the EO Board shortly after that.
Yes. I joined it about a month after being assigned to my first duty station. I would like to add that there were also many fine examples of people who saw you for your potential and didn't care what color you were or what your background was. If you showed potential and desire for something, they gave you everything you needed to catapult yourself through the ranks and build expertise. Fantastic opportunity that was for me.
It's more for themselves than the people they appear to be saying it to.
They don't want to admit that they are racist!
Usually the phrase, "I'm not racist but," is followed by something very racist.<br />
It's all cognitive dissonance and rationalization.
they are inadequate people, under-educated, and full of fear....<br />
I too am of mixed national and racial genes, as are my children..<br />
Back in the 60;s 70;s, when us hippies wanted to bypass the outside of people, it went well, but, once the reaganomics came around..money became the issue..<br />
How I long for..peace and no racism!<br />
Hey, hippie Samurai..
I know I haven't seen this much racial division and animosity since the early 70s. And though I know I will get a lot of disagreement with this,I believe that the overuse of the 'race card' has created the majority of it.
Cool.It is good to stay above the anger and hatred.I was not referring to you,but as you said above,those who label any disagreement with any of the current administration's policies as racist.
I'm going to be totally honest here..... I don't understand what a Racist is? I hear the word used an awful lot, but I don't have a clear definitive idea of what a Racist truly is.
Yes, honestly, I am serious. It seems the word is thrown around a lot, but i've never really understood why? thank you for explaining it to me, The concept that one race is superior over another, is just stupid. All races of people have contributed to the World, and i'm sure we have all learnt something from people of a different race.
Do you know what? I've often wanted to ask other people what a racist was, but most people assume that your joking if you ask a question like that, the thing is, if you don't know, then you don't know! thank you for being patient toward me.
the key word is "trying" <br />
they may try but they won't succeed!!<br />
They be ignorant FOOLS my favorite HippieDude!!! <br />
They give us something to laugh at!!<br />
to be honest we are all the same no matter what colour or nationality we happen to be, just make sure to be very careful passing any cop cars in the street lmao
no, i didn't think that u were an 'angry black person who hates white people' at all and because some people are so daft they don't realise they're being racist and others just don't want to admit it
I do rule don't I ;)
I'm not a racist but hippie samurai is the man.
For some it could be a safety issus. If one lives or works around a different race they might want or need to hide their hatred for their own protection.
