I've never understood racism. I don't get why the colour of your skin or your biological history means you're greater or less than anyone
Then it's your own fault you choose not to educate yourself enough, you got internet, you can read both sides of the story to try and make more sense
of it. But because of social reasons I'll try to chip in to your education even though I'm not getting a dollar I'll probably not even witness your
reaction myself because of this medium, no one is obliged to reply if they don't want to, I'm just mentioning this because that might be something I'd
be interested in.
In my opinion, your actions today determines who you are, not whatever of your ancestors did 1000 years ago, 200 years ago, or during or before
you were born.
You haven't had a single action you can call your own. All you know is the sum of all that made up by people who lived on this planet before you, who
paved the way so you could type that on your keyboard, invented and made by others, who are just like you products of their culture, nothing they made
themselves the only share is they did something with it. I'll try to have a laugh and ask you what you believe is truly yours.
What I REALLY don't understand is white pride in the way we see neo-nazi's portray it.
What makes someone a "pure blood white American". Can that even be a thing?
The whole Jewish thing makes no sense to me either. It's a religion, not a race. A white person can be Jewish, a black person can be Jewish.
I'm visually white, adopted into a Jewish family, whom are also all white.
I just don't get it...
I can't answer that but if I had to guess it would refer to those descendents of the first ones who sailed across the ocean and settled in the new
world, which became the USA and Canada. The most pure would be those who had a family in Europe back then and had power and moved and somehow had
marriages between families who were also there first.
Now why does it all matter? It only matters if you want your life to be part of something, a story if you will. If you don't want it to matter, you'll
be nothing more than a soulless biological robot that is the least value to the story.
If you don't know where you came from, how your world was created, who did what when and where, what will it matter what you are doing, why should it
apply to you? It wouldn't, that's what.
OK you might say a story is better than plain reality without a story to make sense of it all and give it meaning. In the larger scheme of things,
there is actually a universal system found all in the universe including our little secluded planet, or what happened on our planet happened elsewhere
and is not a unique event. It's all DNA everywhere that creates a mind, which is a miracle just look at all the other animals who also make homes for
themselves but nothing like human architecture. However back then people made simple homes as well. In fact they did a lot of things we do now, but
ours is more expanded and complicated to the point of it being chaos and so the underlying system can be hard to see and those who do usually can't
verbalize it or keep it to themselves because it provides an advantage but not if everyone would know about it. Besides each have to figure it out by
themselves, which is also part of life.
Point being: in a group, there is always one the strongest mentally, because of experiences which led to truths which made that person more happy and
thus more convincing and so stronger. All others in that group should follow that one so a hierarchy begins to form and then it would all be clear who
leads and who follows and in what order and decisions could be made.
Now I'm not saying slavery is a good thing and I'm not going to write a wall of text here if only because I just said everyone has to figure out
certain topics for themselves. But if you made a product and a store with the people in your town and it added to everyone's happiness and then
someday you discover this town next to yours without that product and store and people would want your product as well, wouldn't it be logical to hire
someone of their town who starts at the bottom and has to earn the product since you did all the work, eventually leading to that other town having
their own autonomous store and products? Because that is what happened, you can see people in Africa with western products making their lives better,
but it takes time. Surely people were way more cruel back then, but people also need to factor in the fact white people kept white people as slaves
too and treated them cruel. It was only logical those moved up the ladder when slaves from other countries entered the workplace.
The people back then could have chosen to leave without slaves and progress would have been slower. And at some point you might have primitives living
next to highly advanced people who forgot about the basics and would view those humans as not much more than monkeys. They didn't work as in invented
much, the advanced needed space to continue, at best those humans would have been kept in zoos so their lands could be used for like spaceships to
move on to other planets.
