All right so I wanted to make a thread to discuss, racism classism and equality. I think racism is sickening really. No one should be treated like crap, especially for such a stupid reason as being born into a certain type of culture or gene pool. I believe every race can do just as well as any other. Under the same circumstances of life. If one person is raised in a broken home while another is raised in a decent home with decent parents, of course their will be differences. Even if they got the same schooling. If you take like 10 different races, block all cultural differences from them as to not seperate them or make them act based upon their predetermined culture. Raise them with the same parents at the same time. They will all be similar intelligence and competency probably. I believe every one should get a fair and equal chance. The mistakes or stupidity of parents shouldn't have to be forced upon there kids. America is very classist, and often racist. What would you call slavery and native american genocide? I don't really have any respect for america in its current state, where we aren't free, our government is full of warmongers, we don't have true democracy or a constitutional republic, and classism is a big problem. Blind patriotism is stupid. How does one justify racism? Lets say even if one race was genetically inferior, that still wouldn't justify treating them poorly imo. Evolution is not an excuse either, I think survival of the fittest mindset is degenerative. There is probably many other races out side earth that are way more advanced than us, do you think it would be civil or acceptable for them to come here and wipe us out with the reason of evolution ? I heard some one say before evolution goes up to a certain point, then after that we guide our own evolution. I think that is true, we guide our own destiny, will we make it one of pain and suffering or one of peace? I hate elitism, with good reason, it probably does much more harm than good to us all. I don't partake in any culture with negativity. Why should I? Fuck my heritage. My culture is one focused on equality and peace, it's not a fantasy its some thing we gotta do for our survival. Yes and also I find it curious how one calls some one who points these things out racist? Like pointing our how african americans have not been treated equally ever since they have been here. Like uh reverend wright or what ever his name was on the news a few weeks back. The problems are still here and they aren't going away by ignoring them. In a truely fair and equal society we wouldn't be having these kinds of debates any more. My spiritual beliefs all back up these things. I believe we all have had lives as many different races and genders. We are all like a family in spirit, but when we come back in the flesh we start fighting how sad.
