Quiet1, if I understand, my friends ( blacks/hispanics/turkishs/morocos/arabs/koreans ( and I don'ts speak about our religions and poltical views
who are differents also ) and myself, we are ALL racists.
We are living all together, but we are all a soft racists bunch.
Almost everybody on earth want to live with peoples like him. Blacks want to live with blacks, whites want to live with whites, muslims want to live
with muslims,socialists want to live with socialists and so on....It's NORMAL ! Peoples are just looking for peoples like them.
If a christian want to live with a christian, it's ok. A muslim want to live with others muslims ? It's ok. But when a " race " want to live with
his own " race " , this " race " is racist with you. I don't subscribe to your point of view ( thanks Sting
Do you know what's a cultural identity ? We have all one. Each race on earth have his own cultural identity who's definited by his " color ", his
" faith ", his " way of life ", his " past ", his " collective behaviour ", his " foods ", his " history" ....etc...etc...
You can't mix all the races, or you'll destroy all their cultural identity.
Look the USA. After the Vietnam war, many vietnameses went to the USA, and they are now living together.
Or the Chinese, with their little " China Town " in L.A. Are they racists ? I don't think so, but with your point of view, they are.
Or in London, with the Indians or Pakistaneses. They are living together, Indian with Indians, and pakistaneses with Pakistaneses. With you, they are
all racists. Me, I think they just want to live with peoples who shares the same culture like them.
Could you let peoples living like they want please ? And don't call them racists when they tell you that they want to live with peoples like them.
You don't understand it, but your multi-cultural rethoric exceed everybody. Whites, blacks, hispanics, arabs...all of them are exceeded. And you are
creating some problems between all of them.
One of my friends ( who's black and muslim ha ha ha ) told me this : I'll not vote for him ( he was speaking about a socialist ). Do you know why ?
Cuz this socialist had done a speech with the same arguments like yours. " We are all the same and bla bla bla....... " He told me he wasn't like
me. I was white, he was black. He was Muslim and I was Christian.
So what ??? He's racist may be ??? He's nazi ???
One more time, I tell you this:If you want to live with peoples who are different from you, just do it. But don't call racists peoples who want to
live with peoples like them. They are not racists and they don't want to do war with peoples who are not like them.
Just let the peoples chose their lifestyles, and don't try to chose for them. Things will go better.
P.S : And Estragon has right. We are in the " war on terrorism forum ", in the " An open letter to Europe " topic, and we are speaking about a
so-called racism. We are far beyond the original subject.
