Politics and Racism stem from the same ignorance and hatred.

Replace black with left and white with right, or if you want you can replace black with right and white with left, it really doesn't matter. If you read any conversation about politics all you will see is a bunch of labeling, generalization and name calling. If you say one thing, the typical response is, oh you must be a Left, or you must be a Right or some people even say things like Libtard.

Take a look at any political post and replace left, right, conservative, liberal, etc etc with any race and see how it sounds.

Only saying this because it really bothers me when seeing how people talk to each other when it comes to politics and when they automatically label people by having a political opinion based on ONE thing being said. For some reason people think because you have ONE similar opinion that matches a certain political party that you automatically agree with EVERY SINGLE thing that is said by that political party. It's almost as though you are not allowed to agree with both sides or have multiple opinions on different topics that don't match one sides idea. You are either black, or white, left or right. It's pure ignorance and hatred and in my opinion this is why Racism still exists. Until we stop trying to pigeon hole people into a category or label by stereotyping and generalizing then we will continue to remain an ignorant society.


I love fried chicken - Oh you must be black......sounds terrible right, but at the same time VERY ignorant and borderline racist.

I agree with abortion - oh you must be liberal......Doesn't sound so bad except for the generalization of being a liberal because of one single opinion..


I love fried chicken - you you must be a conservative, doesn't sound so bad either

I agree with abortion - oh you must be white....again, ignorant and borderline racist


Anyway, I doubt I made any sense in this post, it's always hard for me to put my thoughts on paper even though they make sense to me in my head, others may not understand what i'm saying or where I am coming from but I can guarantee you that someone will read this post and generalize what political party I am with only because of a word or two that was said....(no political affiliation BTW).

One problem -- darn near everyone in the world loves fried chicken. So far as I know, there is a version of fried chicken in pretty much every culture on earth.

It only becomes a racial thing when it's convenient to make it one.

i do not like it, when different kind of folk arrive here, and do not even try to become a part of the new area, when they just stick together and try to clone the place, where they originally left.

They are my enemies.

That is EXACTLY what i'm talking about. Yes everyone loves fried chicken. Just like everyone can agree and disagree with multiple views from multiple sides.

My point is, In this day and age, for some reason I am not allowed to agree with multiple sides, I have to follow one side and one side only. If I agree with one thing I am automatically placed in the box of being this or that.

I guess it is difficult for me to understand because I come from such a Culturally diverse background that I have never understood the concept of just being one thing. I've always understood that it's ok to have multiple views that span across multiple races, cultures and political views. It's called being an individual and thinking for ones self.

And this is relevant to this thread because why? This has nothing to do with the government and everything to do with people on this forum and how they generalize people by placing them in a category by cherry picking certain words that were said.
