Is it racist to generalize based on personal history?

For example, in my neighborhood, I have personally been robbed three times by people of a certain race. The neighborhood where people of of this race lives looks like a trash dump. Hookers of this race walk the streets 24/7, and gang members of this race are in the news almost daily for crimes they've committed.

So is it wrong to be cautious when I see a person of this race approaching me on a dark street at night when I'm walking by myself?

Okay Agent Stowkowski where the # are we going with this. You might be pissed off, and you might have good reason but I think you've demonstrated your point enough.

I'm behind you 100% with the social engineering aspect of this and yes we know who the primary antagonist's are, the Rockefeller Foundation. So step away from slamming the effect and attack the cause and the root of the problem, and get philosophical about it, on some level were all being played like fools.

This was the original question in a sense, but if you are white, then apparently yes it's wrong.

No it means they evolved in different enviroments


Even if environnment was a factor in human evolution (which it is not), what is your point? It still means that we evolved differently, and are NOT the same. Cause and effect. Environment by your theory would be cause - and the end product of whites being biologically superior and more intelligent would be the effect.

So im a racist skinhead because i come from England.

Now who's being racist, but if you're of the ethnic minority you'll get away with it.

Now if i said you're a terrorist because you come from the middle east, what would that make me?. And how much slack would i get for it.
May i suggest you read through all the posts if you are able.



I'm referring to your ORIGINAL POST.



Now i am very untrusting of them, and i am sick of our government letting them move over here to live.
We dont know if they are radicalised or not. must we live in fear while the government lets more over.Are we living in an invasion or what?


I never said you were racist and I never said it was because you were from England. I said you are XENOPHOBIC and you espouse xenophobic ideas typical of skinhead groups in England.

And what ideas would those be??

I speak my mind, and call it how i see it.
If that upsets some, well it's tough. Freedom of speech right.

It would not be racist to be cautious being around this race, it would be intelligent.

There is scientific data and studies out there about the crimes they commit, such a high crime rate and incarceration rate. It would only be the smart and safe thing to do to be cautious around them.

Black widow spiders are also known to be dangerous and there is also scientific evidence and statistics to back that up - wouldn't you be cautious around them? Or is that racism too?

If that's not xenophobic, I don't know what is.

Thats not xenophobic, its a man speaking his mind after years of biting his tongue. You try living near me, your views would change.
And just out of curiosity what ethnic background do you come from.?

Don't let the media cloud your vision mate. Don't tarnish every Muslim with
the same brush. They're good people and the majority of them are kind and good hearted.

You want to know the reasons for so many Muslim immigrants coming to Britain? The Afghanistan and Iraq war. The majority of Immigrants that come to Britain are from the two countries named above. I'm discounting the Eastern Europeans as they're from Europe as we are as one.

Remember they're running from Iraq and Afghanistan because we've been bombing the crap out of there countries for the last five years. It's only natural that some of these people will be angry. They've lost legs, arms, eyes, children, sons, daughters, mothers and fathers.

Don't believe the media, It's in their interests to divide the populace. They need justification for the continued presence in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Put yourself in there position and maybe you'll be more forgiving. Yes, there are some radical Muslims, like we have radical Christians but don't hate them all, they're simply us.

Orby, people hate the truth when it does not support their agenda.

"The truth about hate, is people hate the truth." Best quote ever.

They are all bark and no bite. The best they can do is throw around certain blanket-terms, such as "racist!", "skinhead!" or "hate monger!", words that were created to incite fear and hate.

When you hear the word "skinhead" you automatically get a picture of a psychopathic, angry, evil nazi in your head. Why is this? Because this is what has been indoctrinated in you since early childhood by the media. Or in other words, brainwashing.

I'm sorry orby, but that is the very definition of xenophobic. If you don't know what the term means, I suggest you look it up.

Like i said i speak my mind, but not for no reason, because i've had enough of my society as it is, and the world in general.
If you dont like what i say, dont read it. It's that simple.

Xenophobic is the fear of the unknown - how exactly is being afraid of a race where it has been documented and well studied that they are much more likely to commit crimes, "the unknown" ?

And why is being a xenophobic a bad thing, as you seem to imply? Is being arachnophobic a bad thing? Or any other phobia?

Xenophobia could also mean the fear of strangers. Didn't your mother ever tell you not to talk to strangers?

Let me repeat what you wrote.

Telepath: You sound like a skinhead

Orby1976: Why

Telepath: Because your from England

Orby1976 is concerned and bothered by it, so by your logic he's a skinhead because he's from England.

You just let the mods do their own thinking. When there good and ready they'll come on here and warn me, but you need to use the complaint button you tool.

What if I'm not white? Is it still wrong?

I seriously had this discussion with my kids a couple of weeks ago. Their school was brainwashing them and they couldn't understand why they shouldn't rely on their own experiences and instead were told they should be ashamed for drawing conclusions based on common sense.

By the way, when did the intelligentsia take over and replace common sense with text book theories?

You people seem to just pull things out of thin air. Here it is from Merriam Webster:



One unduly fearful of what is foreign and especially of people of foreign origin.


Now, you can dispute that if you want... however, I am not going to take you seriously unless you are a lexicographer.

Cheers
