These guys might disagree....





It's not all organized groups.



FBI data shows sharp rise in US hate crimes

Report shows nearly 23% increase in religion-based hate crimes last year and 37% spike in anti-Jewish hate crimes

There were 7,106 single-bias incidents involving 8,493 victims, the FBI reported on Tuesday.

Almost 60% of victims were targeted because of bias against race, ethnicity or ancestry bias. A fifth were targeted because of the offenders’ religious bias and 15.8% were victimized because of the offenders’ sexual-orientation bias. Just under 2% of victims documented in the report were targeted because of a disability or a bias against gender identity.

The hate crimes ranged from murder to vandalism and also included rape, robbery and assault.

How many people did God create?



The answer by the way is none, God was created by man in his own image to explain things that the science of the time couldn't. Brainwashing from an early age and the fact humanity can't eliminate all the hardships of life are the reasons that religion is still a thing. If we lived in a perfect, equal society we'd find less and less people needed to turn to an imaginary sky being for comfort and solace.

It's a shame because this could have been an interesting debate without adding God onto the equation. I also find it curious you use examples of Darwinian Evolution to prove Darwinian Evolution wrong.

Also, I have never heard any suggestion anywhere that one section of humanity is less or more evolved than others, you'd think that's the kind of thing you'd stumble on after 41 years on this rock, being as inquisitive as I am. Can you back up this claim with some facts or links please?

Really? The belief in Darwinian Evolution applied to humans and Racism go hand in hand. Darwin himself was an outspoken racist.



Darwin was, after all, a man of his time, class and society. True, he was committed to a monogenic, rather than the prevailing polygenic, view of human origins, but he still divided humanity into distinct races according to differences in skin, eye or hair colour. He was also convinced that evolution was progressive, and that the white races—especially the Europeans—were evolutionarily more advanced than the black races, thus establishing race differences and a racial hierarchy. Darwin's views on gender, too, were utterly conventional. He stated that the result of sexual selection is for men to be, “more courageous, pugnacious and energetic than woman [with] a more inventive genius. His brain is absolutely larger [...] the formation of her skull is said to be intermediate between the child and the man” (Darwin 1871). Although female choice explains sexual selection, it is the males who evolve in order to meet the chosen criteria of strength and power; such nineteenth century differentiation between the sexes was crucial in providing an alleged biological basis for the superiority of the male.

Thank you, I hadn't read that of Darwin. It's sad to think such an intelligent man could get that part so wrong.

Off to read the rest..

You are both right, and entirely wrong, all at once.

There is only one race, the human race. But there is racism, fascism and xenophobia, there is discrimination over religion, over origins, over place of birth or the origin of parents. The legal system and the people working in it, do not do enough to ensure that people from minority backgrounds are treated equally, judged equally, and sentenced equally and in a manner similar to those from non-minority backgrounds. The police do not do enough to ensure that their policies do not disproportionately effect minority communities and the people within them, and they are supported in CONTINUING to discriminate against people from those minority backgrounds, by governments which are either hogtied and gridlocked in order to prevent positive change by backward regressives during the leadership of forward thinkers, or led by backward regressives who do not want to see any positive change in the first place.

Those are things that happen. While there remain any far right lunatics who hate people based on their skin colour or religious beliefs, there will always be problems to deal with, and the only people who are at fault for that, are the Tiki torch bearing scum and those who appease and support them.

I suggest you form a group and take formal legal steps to have the word racisim removed from the dictionary and from humanities vocabulary...disenfranchise it AT THE WORD LEVEL...fight them using ord-majic like they do to you...they created the word to cause damage...now all you have to do is pull it like a bad tooth.

Well if there is only one race its impossible to be racist.
Time to end all diversity programs.
And affirmative action.
The Rooney rule...
Etc.
Etc.
Etc.

Well, as the Irish proved for so many years, you can all be the same "race" and ethnicity but still fight to the death over which flavor of Jesus you happen to believe in. Human beings are a scrappy bunch, huh?

Also, getting rid of the word "racism" means that people will just find another word for it. Something that sounds good at first but hides its true intent. Like "cleansing."

Nobody cares about the books today....todays generations do not put their faith in books like past generations have done....the trust quotient is swinging back towards person to person exchanges...social media has ousted the olde school trust the book schtick....everyone knows that conspiracy theories are really truths people are fighting to have released ...even if they have no idea what the conspiracy is about the people KNOW that we have all been screwed blue for centuries....and they trust each other more now than they trust books.In Canada the medical MJ which was predominantly CBD based was sold out first by a long shot....which proves the MASSES all know of the medical benefits of MJ now and they are forsaking the social impairment choice for MEDICAL BENEFITS.... and how many people do you know who will accept free vaccinations...LMAO....ten years ago everyone was lined up but today when you can google it and see that EVEN THE DOCTORS AND NURSES giving out the vaccines DO NOT GIVE THEM TO THEIR OWN CHILDREN.....lol... the lineups are short and they even give away free turkeys with the free vaccines...you know what they say there is no such thing as a free lunch.

I had this discussion just 2 days ago. Yes there is race, it is real. You are all just defining it wrong. To explain, I will copy the exchange.

1.
Yea, if you want to talk race how about we all started out the same group but got separated over time. Let's say there were 3 groups, Europe, Far East, Africa, and lots of smaller groups milling around. For thousands of years each group remained isolated from the others, each developing in its own way at its own rate. Eventually, differences developed between them. They were all still human, there was still tremendous variability, but also some distinctive characteristics, culture, and history.

So to define race, you can see it not so much by just skin color but you can define it as a geographical gene pool. This is not saying they aren't human or that anyone is better, only that their genes derive from the relatively isolated area. Of course it can be divided other ways and there are smaller groups but these are the main ones.

2. his reply
I think what you are referring to is called "speciation".
This is a part of what got Darwin into so much trouble with the sparrows. The difference in people could be looked at in this manner, but then you would be called a "speceist" or something else less desirable.

3. final
You're missing the point. Yes, the different races have been called subspecies but that terminology is often met with objections. Often by those with the very views you expressed in your earlier post.

This is why I propose to not use any physical characteristics at all when referring to race. When you define a member as someone that originates from a specific geographical gene pool, it avoids all of the racist implications. Further, these gene pools can easily be proved to exist. You might say, "There is no black race, people have this Y chromosome and there is a lot of variability besides." But you can't say, "There is no Africa."

I realize this is not 100% precise. The Berbers are from an African gene pool and do not meet the accepted interpretation of "African" race. The old definition was also not precise as evidenced by all of the controversy.

So instead of saying Blacks and Whites, you have European peoples and African peoples. Asians are still Asians, I guess. Defining race by gene pools is really not different from the way we see things now.

No. I am basing it purely upon geographical location. No physical characteristics whatsoever. Ethnicity implies a familial or tribal relationship. Africa or Far East contains I don't know how many ethnic groups.

We have already moved to referring to European peoples and African peoples. Like Afro-American. It just not defined by gene pools yet in the literature.

What you should be tired of is people constantly using "racism" as an accusatory term for anything they don't like tat has nothing to do with racism at all. People are not immune from criticism because they are of a certain race.
White race is the best. All else don't deserve to live among white people. That's consensus reality among more and more whites. It's not a matter of hate either. I don't hate lions and tigers but no way would I live among them.

I do not feel that way.

I feel that it is the responsibility of every group of humans on the planet, to ensure that their worst excesses are trampled into the dirt. For example, in my country, we have this sort of millennia old Stockholm Syndrome, when it comes to the way we deal with foreign affairs. Ever since the Roman occupation of Britain, the notions of being one with nature rather than trying to master it, evaporated, as did the notion of being one with ones fellow humans. We accepted all the dire, broken, crap spawned programming of those disgusting, toga wearing tosspots, including the notion of empire building. We had a responsibility not to become the oppressor, and yet we were, for many hundreds of years of our history. We were the bogeyman, the story you told your children if you lived ANYWHERE outside the empire, to terrify them into obedience, stop them galivanting around at all hours and be in bed at reasonable times.

And despite the collapse of the empire, despite the fact that now our nation holds much less sway in the world, we are still bogeymen, still a source of pain, sorrow and anguish in the world. I do not think my group, my subset are best. I think we are as flawed as any group of people anywhere. We failed to contain the moral threat that was the infection of the empire builder, we failed to cease our murderous, avaricious attempts at domination even after the collapse of our own empire, and will never be able to repay or repair the damage that our nation has done, and still does, without excuse or sound reason, to other nations populations.

Until these things cease, I will be unable to respect the group from which I come. I will respect it when its decency, compassion and love for other human beings, prevents it from behaving like a piece of the lowest turd, on the world stage, when every phobic little parasite has been extinguished from its lands, when there is not a hateful, persecution complex carrying speck left on the soil of these isles. Until then, the group from which I come has a great deal of work to do, to become a respectable entity. We made a decent start in slaying the Nazis, and now we just need to push all the way, become the best that we could ever have been, with love and mercy.

I hardly know what to make of that. Couldn't you become the best that we could ever have been, with love and mercy without all the self loathing?

I assure you, having respect for one's self and one's family is normal and healthy. I can at least speak for Americans; we think very highly of the British people. Nevertheless, I would encourage you to value your own no matter what nationality or race you might be.
