Can racism be used as a psyop on a people?

Racism is the ORIGINAL psyop! It was created artificially by money men and slavers to excuse great wrong doing in the name of profit! It had people doing things they wouldn't normally do, and thinking things that people had not really thought before!

It's the windows 3.1 of mass manipulation of thought and action.

Alex Jones has alleged for some time that Obama is actually directly engaged in stoking the ignorant fear that is racism.

- He does chill with Jay Z , a known racist , and got involved in the Treyvon Martin case which many saw has inflaming the black community's rage about the incident.

Short answer yes and yes

I think the latest choice for the poster child for racism illustrates how far post- racialism has come. Apparently racism has disappeared to such an extent that when it does rear it's ugly head it dominates the news cycle for days and days.

And Sterling's racism is extremely mild compared to newsworthy racists of the past. He was even honored by the NAACP more than once and set to receive a lifetime achievement. He did not use the n-word that was the hallmark of racists in the past. He dated a black woman and gave her millions of dollars in gifts. She could have left him anytime after she learned of his racist attitude but chose to stay. He did not lynch anybody or physically harm anyone that I have seen reported. He did not burn any crosses. And he is an 80 year old man without much time left here. His kind seems to be dying out.

Yes, his comments were racist and were universally condemned by almost every media outlet I have seen even on the far right.

Sure it can. I don't know if it actually is, but here is what might be going on: when a population is divided, whether over political beliefs or race or something else, they are not going to be able to unite. Whether the government intended it or not, I believe this is why they get away with so much. Instead of the people focusing on what is going on, they are focusing more on the political parties themselves. The right is not apt to attack the right, and left is not likely to go after the left.

They do not view each other as a people united to fight government corruption, as an example, but people view themselves as being a dem or rep, or whatever else. And political beliefs are not the only division that exists. Like you asked, racism could easily divide the population, and does.

This translates into more people not wishing to unite for a greater cause. It is hard to imagine that there is some nefarious plan to keep the people from uniting, but is it really all that far-fetched? Even with the little information that has been proven, regarding what goes on behind closed doors, suggests that there are certain people in positions of power who try to manipulate various aspects of the system. And this has been going on since the founding of the US, although it has gotten worse as time goes on.

So in conclusion, race is something that can be used to keep people from uniting, but whether there is a plot of this nature I cannot say. The people very well could keep themselves divided, with some group having to intervene to accomplish this task.

You don't have to fall prey to it.

It's difficult in the age of information to understand how such ignorance is maintained. But somehow they seem to maintain a separation between people due to different race, belief, and sexual orientation.

It's all mind manipulation. All people no matter who, have intrinsic value and importance, imo. The world would be a really boring place with not much growth and learning, if we all looked the same, acted the same, and thought the same.

Goddess & God Bless diversity, and may the tolerance of acceptance of what we all have to bring one another - save the day!

Of course. Anything and everything that grabs any attention whatsoever can be used as a psyop.

Divide and conquer.

Anything that separates, alienates, or otherwise polarizes the mind can be used in a psyop situation.

Of course.
If we get offended by the "N" word than how can we ever really talk about it?
I have tried to have this conversation many times.....the minute you actually say the "N" word,while wanting to get to the bottom of are labelled a racist.

Opening up an honest conversation only brands you as a racist.

Look at the hoods and the nigga word that gets tossed around.....but when you want to actually talk openly and chance.

When a person says "don't say that word again around me"
The only thing I can think of you really want me to treat you like a child?? (really....a word makes you go batcrap crazy?)
Don't do this,don't do dare you say a single word that offends me.
Let me challenge your thoughts and tell you to piss off if you have that attitude without being labelled.

People are VERY politically correct and they don't even have a clue why.

In Australia a few days ago there was a football match in which a spectator threw a banana onto the ground near an Aboriginal footballer. There was no racist remark shouted, no derogatory comments at all but the media immediately took the story and blew it up to be a racist attack. Cups and rubbish are often thrown by louts at opposing team members at these games but it's never mentioned. It seems like the media turned the story into a racist 'attack' when it seemed that it was not.

Well, traditionally, racism was a very real problem and the people who were enslaved by it were obviously not involved in any such thing as a conspiracy or psyop.

In more recent times (since roughly the 50s)? Yes. The issue has been exploited for political purposes. Of course it has had some good consequences. The issues of civil rights is not (strictly speaking) a bad thing. It's like anything else. Feminism, gay rights, whatever. There are some very shady things hidden in the shadow cast by the good intentions of the people who support it because they want people to be happy and have good lives. You cannot even try to expose the shady aspects of it without looking like a racist. There are some not so nice people hiding in there and they will obviously immediately accuse you of racism, sexism or whatever (depending on which movement they're in).

People's emotions can always be exploited by issues like racism or sexism. It is the natural place to look for a psyop. But it must be remembered that not everyone who is involved in the civil rights movement (or whatever you want to call it) is aware of this or has any bad intentions at all. They will believe you're a bad guy if you criticize it but that doesn't necessarily mean they are part of a cover up. More likely, they just don't know any better.

Well with Donald Sterling and Jeremy Clarkson in the last few days or so. Yes to your question. Not in favour of whitey either

Jeremy IMO shouldn't even have said sorry
