What Are Your Thoughts On "Racism."

Before you give me your opinion, it would be helpful if you first read the closed down thread "Is racism bad?" No doubt most of you out there would consider "racism" to be bad. Here is your chance to tell me why.

I hope not.

It's sophomoric, silly, adolescent and ridiculous - not to mention foul, fetid and evil to suggest other wise.

Reading the thread don't tell me much about where you want this thread to go. I'd like to share something with you FWIW. I received an e mail yesterday from Sen. Johnny Isackson. Here is a copy and paste of that (with my comments to follow):

"Thank you for contacting me regarding the recent violence in Charlottesville. I appreciate hearing from you and am grateful for the opportunity to respond.

"On August 11, 2017, protestors gathered in Charlottesville, Virginia to oppose the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from the town’s Emancipation Park. Protesters included white supremacists and nationalists, neo-Confederates, neo-Nazis, and various militias. The demonstrators chanted racist and anti-Semitic slogans, and displayed swastikas, Confederate battle flags, anti-Muslim and anti-Semitic banners. The protest eventually turned violent, leaving one person dead and 19 injured. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions described the violence as domestic terrorism, and the Department of Justice has launched a civil rights investigation into the incident.

I strongly condemn the hatred and violence incited by white supremacists in Charlottesville. This type of bigotry and hate is not what our country stands for, and we must stand united as Americans against this evil. Throughout my career as a public servant, I have always sought to treat all people equally. Equal rights for all people before the law is a bedrock principle of our nation. The strength of our nation lies in our unity, and a land of different temperaments, beliefs, and convictions is strengthened by mutual tolerance and respect. I am praying for the victims of this domestic terror attack and their families, and for unity for our country in the wake of this event.

On September 6, 2017, I, along with Sens. Mark R. Warner (D-VA), Cory Gardner (R-CO), Tim Kaine (D-VA), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), introduced S.J.Res.49, a resolution condemning white nationalists, white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and other hate groups in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville. This measure unanimously passed the United States Senate on September 11, 2017 and was signed by the president three days later. I will continue to work with my colleagues to stand against these reprehensible acts.

Thank you again for contacting me. If I can be of any assistance to you in the future, please do not hesitate to call upon me
."

RESPONSE: Legally speaking, white racism is bad, intolerable, and beyond any discussion. And - socially speaking, only whites can be racists. From a legal, social and political POV, whites are the scum of the earth at this time.

Meanwhile, Antifa was reported to have a website and this is their view:

"Liberals and much of the Left claim that confrontational tactics hurt us more than they help, from breaking windows to blocking streets. But in reality, each and every time this plays out in our communities, it is simply not the case. In fact, confrontation and disruption, in other words: physically fighting, brings more people in than sign holding or writing letters to the editor ever did. If anything, the wet blanket and attempts to control things by protest managers and liberals kills social movements, not combative actions which can be disruptive and at times violent."

It appears that it will be socially, legally, and politically that the only time racism will be bad is if it is white racism. Maybe Antifa has a point. Posting your frustrations on a discussion board are no more effective than a letter of the editor or a march / parade. Meeting the blowhards, one on one and seeing which ones want to talk smack to your face is the more definitive way of dealing with those who want to wage a war against you. Just saying...

It's bad because it takes away individuality from ppl, and it almost always is directed towards non-Whites.

In my thread "Is racism bad," I said about everything that needed to be said on the subject. Feel free to reply to that thread here. Seeing how you can no longer do it there.

It isn't a "White" thing, all races have a degree of racism (Human Nature)

Everyone has some level or racism, some understand this and contain it more than others. (I have seen racism in Blacks as well as whites due to my heritage)

Racism is a wedge of division, and is easily used as to bait or as a club to create fear to shut down honest debate.
Thanks from Kate and Jimgorn

Something we agree on.

Why is it When Conservatives want to cut the GROWTH of welfare Liberals cry it is Racism?

Because Democrat believe that black people can only survive with handouts from White Liberal elites, or in other words they are Incompetent, Lazy or Stupid.

I believe neither there are incompetent, lazy and stupid people among all races.

"Racism" isn't just human nature. If you read my other thread, you would know that it is the vast majority of nature, period. The reason for that is because it isn't bad at all. Why? Because there is something else that is almost universal in nature. Taking what others want or need. The only exception is in a symbiotic relationship. "Racism," bigotry, hate or whatever you want to call it. It is absolutely necessary to keep different creatures taking what your species (or race) wants or needs.

To that end, we NEED division. In nature, separatism is the rule. Not convergence. Our problems can't be solved through an accepting multi-ethnic (multi-species) society. And segregation clearly doesn't work. Separatism is the only way to go.

Does what you explain why there isn't a negro populated and run country on the planet that is worth a damn? Despite the "monkey see, monkey do" example set for them by more developed countries?

Racism is good if it is aimed at white people, especially if they are straight white males. Otherwise it is bad...very, very bad.

America used to be a melting pot but thanks to cultural Marxism we now are forced to focus on our differences. Whoohoo culture war. Thanks leftists.
Thanks from Jimgorn and Sensible
