Dat RMB spam doe
Also, has anyone thought of a new poll yet? I was thinking dessert.
I think we have a few new regulars on the rmb. This is good, increases activity.
They are caused by race, to a degree. A small ethnic minority population could be argue to be a good thing but a largely racially homogeneous population must be maintained for various reasons. People are naturally ethnocentric and prefer their own kind over others.
A large ethnic minority population also results in a shrinking White population.
Yeah, we have 1 Lenny to deal with. We don't need another.
New Poll, Don't Hate Me XD
Is the other "PC?"
This might be the most stupid thing I have read in a while. In addition to the "definition of racism"-stuff above.
Race should not be an issue, as science has shown us there is not actual difference between people of different skin colours. Race is an issue because people keep bringing it into issues that really are due to other reasons. Therefore, racism needs to be combatted until it no longer is an issue.
People are NOT naturally ethnocentric, and there are NOT such things as mine or your "kind". Sure, people have different cultural upbringings, but these tend to be extremely fluid and change over time both by mixing of traditions, and becasue of the passing of time.
What we consider typical for a culture today would in many cases be heresy for the people living a few generations ago, both with and without "outside" influences. There has not been a culture in history without influences from other cultures. People have always been "mixing", and the social world is ALWAYS changing, get with it.
And if your post was meant to just provide an example of racism, then this is no longer aimed at you, but it still can't be said enough.
And in regards to if religion falls under racism: since a lot of people are making connections between skin colour or other features and certain religions and are prejudiced against people based on appearance, assuming they belong to a certain religion I think it counts as racism. That people also assume they can put everyone of the same religion in the same box, even though their nationalities and their traditions differ, I would say that belongs to the modern expanded meaning of the word racism. In any case it is bigotry, and fighting over definitions will only divert the attention away from the issue of people suffering every day from this bigotry.
