Racism. Isn't the idea of it.. 'racist'
Isn't being for or against racism, racist, even thinking about it or choosing a side, is dividing the (so called) 'races' even more.
Even if you're strongly against racism, you're bringing more and more awareness to this racism issue.
WE ARE ONE RACE. THE HUMAN RACE. If a dog has a different colour of fur. It's not an issue, they aren't different races. The same, just a different colour. We are all humans, if we have different colour eyes, we aren't a different 'race' but if we have a different colour skin.. ooh yeah. Where does this logic come from? People who WANT to divide us. Why let them? All 'races' have brought so much to the world in terms of science, mathmatics, agriculture ect. While you're going on a rant about the black man or the white man. You aren't looking at the history of what the black man or the white man brought to the table. An if you're dissatisfied and think one side hasn't brought enough to the table, then unite, and give them a chance to bring more to the table in the modern society.

We life in organic societies, and NOT in one happy family.
Down with Universalism.

You are right in saying that race is unimportant.
But group identity is everything.

Group-belonging in primates [ Bonobos or Humans or Gorillas] is a feeling, and not an observable fact.

Unless the sentiment is returned, altruistic behaviour towards groupmembers simply is bad strategy.

Much of human behaviour - especially the silly-looking parts - is about establishing which group an individual identifies with, to avoid mistakes. The british class system is a wonderful example of it! So ar fraternity rituals.. or football clubs chants. If they all look silly to the outsider... then probably it is supposed to look silly to the outsider.

As for colour as in race - I am utterly contemptuous of it. It does not make sense.

Surely a white american and a black american have more in common that a white american with a white frenchman or a black american with a papua.

I think racism is dysfunctional... but I cannot prove it to my own satisfaction. Meanwhile,I will just treat it as bulldust.


Ethnos is closely tied to ethos - behaviour. There lies the key.

My point is 'Race' is division that doesn't need to be there. It distracts us from the real enemy. Black & white can fight all they want, AFTER we fix the bigger, more relevant problems. Most of us, black or white are in the same boat, and it's sinking. We can fix or fight over our differences or whatever else when we get back to land but at the minute we need to work together. As long as we keep fighting over kicking people out of the little boat we're all in, we're gonna miss an opportunity to gain a better standard of living as a whole. Most this division, and not just race, came from the top - down, not the bottom - up. Right now at least, it's not about black or white, it's about rich and poor.

it has always been and will always be rich vs poor. those in power use race as a tool to segregate and it works. people are too stupid to see through the veil. fact is, we are all the same to those in power - money green. ive tried to explain this in NR more than once. if you are looking for racism everywhere you look it is all you will see.

until we are all Americans instead of separated shades the problem will continue. but many want undeserved advantages and opportunities not otherwise afforded them and they use race as the vehicle to get them.

So you're either focussing only on the most extreme racism (the American kind), or you'd like to assimilate the other poor denizens of Earth.

The most extreme racism? The American kind? Hmmm, me thinks thou hast thy head up thou's ass, LSD... deeply thus. (Or Snarky McQuipster is just trying to get under peoples skin again, as usual, which is to say he is being his usual troll self.)

Please explain how the "America kind" of racism is any different than any other racism. Please spare no detail, as I want to learn, so that I too can be as worldly as you seem to think you are. Thanks.

This should make for an interesting read.

Surely you are aware that there's more of a difference than pigment?

Seems to me ignorance is the leading cause of racism, so I'm always a bit saddened to see ignorance spouted by the opposite side as well.
