My belief is that it IS ok to be racist, as long as one separates the group from the individual. Racism is taking a group of people, noting a pattern amongst said group, and anticipating that pattern to continue with others in that same group.

I am a racist, and I know it. I see patterns amongst various groups, and make anticipations in that matter. I do, however, reserve judgment on any one person until the pattern is shown, which is what I mean by separating the group from the individual. While I expect a pattern to be followed, I won't allow that anticipated pattern to affect my dealings with that person.

but this IS about rights...people r entiltled to thier opinions, right OR wrong.and u dont have the right to kill someone if its not in selfdefense.u have the ABILITY to kill, but not the right. peace over war


Apparently this world is more about war over peace. -___-'

But I agree. It's more about rights. Not about right or wrong since that's really...vague. And also, in my opinion, it's going to be practically impossible to make this world free of racism. You can be a racists since it's your right to be. But if it starts hurting someone else and you're abusing someone else's rights, then there's an issue

technically speaking, people do have the 'right' to be racist, and have any right to hate something for whatever reason. It's not a right to act upon it, and violate someone elses right by harassing them. I find either way to be immoral.

if you kill someone you're not going to prison because you dont have the right to kill, you're going to prison because what you did is wrong. nobody is gonna tell you, "hello Im going to lock you because you have no right to kill". where did you heard that, anyway? peace over war? if we havent the right to kill, many bad people would still be alive, today. like the dictator from my country
you're life is too easy, that's why you think like this.

everyone is a lil bit racist.

but thinking that you are god-like and super superior than others just bec of your race, then something is definitely wrong. you are lucky you were born in that race, but if you were born with something else, what will you do? will you still be a racist? i think not.

a man's dignity isnt measured by what race he/she belongs to.

actually in the legal system of america, its that simply. u only have the right to kill under certain circmstances- self defense, or some kind of security. if the law says its ok to kill people under ne circumstance, then yes, it doesnt matter if its wrong, u would still have the right.we judge by a trial by jury, and our laws r not always reasonable, logical, or coherrent. our justice system has lots of flaws as well, so even the worsts of criminals can get off if they have the right luck on thier side.

i got peace over war from a chinese salute, which they use to chanlenge some dude to the death :mellow:

if u want to get rid of a bad dictator, assassinate him...america sells weapons to ne one now a days. peace over war

You are clearly illiterate about the legal system. Be quiet.
