You know, I read that manifesto supposedly written by Roof. It has some truth in it, like the parts about resenting what appears to be "reverse
racism"... I know quite a few people who feel that way. It has some historical myths, like the once-believed correlation between skin color and
intelligence. And it has some parts that read like something out of a slave-trader diary or something that was penned by Hitler himself.
It's pretty scary. But it's also revealing if its authenticity is to be belived. Even the truths I spoke of are rooted to a large part in ignorance.
We don't have a racial problem here; we have an ignorance problem. How does one combat ignorance? With knowledge of course. How does one acquire
knowledge? Through communication. How does one communicate with others? By speech.
So yeah, let's restrict speech some more. That'll solve the problem.
Let's get rid of that mean old flag too. That'll show people we're serious! Stop them from being able to take pride in their heritage, so they'll
finally decide others should take pride in their heritage. That won't breed resentment.
While we're stirring the pot, let's make sure people are afraid to communicate, by making a slip of the tongue a legal offense. Let's make opinions
that don't fit well with the minority du-jour criminal. Let's make people afraid to speak. We won't wipe out racism, but we'll identify a lot of
racists, because everyone who speaks will be racist.
I hope, I pray, that the OP was a practice in sarcasm. Because if it wasn't, it shows we have truly passed the point of no return. We have regressed
as a society to the point where we can no longer make intelligent decisions. We are become animals, fighting amonst each other for a chance to become
alpha in a pack hierarchy where no alphas can exist save those running the show behind the scenes.
I said a long time ago, on this very forum, that the next Civil War would be worse than the last one. In the last one, one pretty well knew which side
a person was on by where they lived; in the next one, the only way to know your enemy will be when the knife is sticking out of your back. Your own
family members will become suspect. I fear that kind of war, but it appears it is closer than I had hoped.
So yeah, go ahead. Pass a law against "racism". Might as well get this over with.
