If racism is so bad, why is misanthropy not worse?

Well, I am a misanthrope. I wouldn't like it if that was suddenly worse than racism.

It's become more of a character trait, honestly. I get introduced by my friends as "This is my friend >Name<, he hates everything and everyone."

I remember a dude hating on the mentally retarded kids back at my school. He had pretty low self esteem so no wonder. Fucking asshole.

Cool story?


Damn it, why can't you people masturbate me when I need it? Patting yourself on the shoulder gets REAL tiring after a while.


Dude if your masturbating by patting yourself on the shoulder your totally doing it wrong. da fuck kind of porn taught you that?!

Because misanthropy has never been, as far as I can tell, a systemic problem like racism is. It's usually just the lamentations of an individual. I would assume that misanthropes don't find much solidarity like racists do. So you probably wouldn't see a group of misanthropes coming together to put other people down like you would a group of racists. In addition, racism is passed down by parents and parental figures. No one influences their children to have a hatred for all of humanity.

Near as I can tell, there hasn't been a congregation of misanthropes who harm other people en masse, and have therefore proven to be less dangerous. So long as misanthropy remains largely harmless, it will not be deemed worse than racism.

As a confirmed misanthrope, I can't speak for all misanthropes but, I can confirm that we generally don't want to hurt anybody.

Misanthropy is described by Wikipedia as: "The general hatred, distrust or contempt of the human species or human nature. A misanthrope or misanthropist is someone who holds such views or feelings." Which I would say is about right. It's not really about hating people on a personal level, until they wrong us.


While racism is, and this goes by the real definition and not the BLM definition: "The belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races."
