NOUN



1.prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior:




Do you believe racism is a "system" or a "belief"
Do you believe that minorities cant be racist?
what exactly makes one racist?


or do you think races don't even exist and we are all just humans


what are your thoughts on the "racism in America" "BLM"

does being a certain color immediantly make you racist?

what do you think is truly the root of the problem we have today?


lets make this civil please

Personally, I think anyone can be racist regardless of whether they are a minority or not.

Neither.

No.


what exactly makes one racist?

Differential treatment using standards of race.


or do you think races don't even exist and we are all just humans

They do exist, but people need to learn past their inferior methodology of thinking and start recognizing people by actions rather than skin tone.


what are your thoughts on the "racism in America" "BLM"

Everytime I see "#BLM" it's from someone a hell of a lot more racist than the average American.

Lel. Not sure if this was included to be bait or not.


what do you think is truly the root of the problem we have today?

Sheer ignorance.

Racists can be found everywhere.
Some Europeans don't consider the Polish to be white and treat them terribly.

Do you believe racism is a "system" or a "belief"


Racism is, by its nature, a set of beliefs. These beliefs can inform the structure and behaviour of political, social, and economic systems.


Do you believe that minorities cant be racist?


No. I do not at all buy into the argument that racism is only such when a person with prejudicial beliefs is empowered to translate them into impacting action. That's bollocks.


what exactly makes one racist?


I would imagine it's a combination of multiple factors interacting in a complex, subjective way. Sometimes it's rearing, sometimes it's personal insecurity, sometimes it's people fulfilling their need for a sense of purpose and community by joining ethnic nationalist groups or taking up ethnic nationalist causes (this is a big part of how the KKK recruits people), and some of it is probably traceable to social biology.


or do you think races don't even exist and we are all just humans


Technically race is nothing more than a social construction, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. It just shouldn't be terribly important as far as peoples' social status and opportunities are concerned. There are still matters of concern that can be traced back to racial/ethnic background (such as differences in responsiveness to medications, prevalence of certain disorders, and a host of economic and social concerns), so you can't just ignore it, but racial/ethnic background shouldn't be allowed to define people.


what are your thoughts on the "racism in America" "BLM"


Racism is still a significant concern in the United States, but not all responses thereto have been constructive or positive. Deescalation hasn't been given the priority it ought to have and there are transparent miscarriages of justice afoot, but those who engage in retaliatory violence against police officers should be (and have been) held to account for doing so by actors on both sides of the discussion.


does being a certain color immediantly make you racist?


No.


what do you think is truly the root of the problem we have today?


Currently? Triablism and false dichotomies supporting it. For example, the dichotomy that one can only either support law enforcement officers or the core ideas underlying the Black Lives Matter movement's creation.

Eliminate single motherhood and within a generation race will hardly mather at all. As of now primiraly black women are pooping out children without a father around. Due to lack of a father those children grow up to be uneducated, criminal scum and thus end up being shot by police. The lack of success in education as well as high crime affinity is interpretated as racism because single mothers are the holy cows of our civilisation.

Single motherhood is rising among all races, so actually all we need to do is to wait a few more generations until white children are just as unlikely to have a father around as blacks and the statistics will balance out, whites will be just as uneducated and criminal as blacks are. This entire racism racism racism blah is just a smoke screen and people are stupid for falling for it.

Once children know how to walk, talk and not to poop where they eat the role of mothers end and fathers become way more importaint. We have two distinct genders for a reason and the destruction of gender roles is taking a heavy toll on children. Gender is biological, but we have morons claiming otherwise.

It's en entire chain of issues but Feminism is the establishment, as long as we can't get rid of them we can't tackle any of the other issues. So we might as well just sit here and wait until all children no mather the race will be growing up in single mother households and no disparate can be measured anymore as they all become equally criminal, uneducated scum.
