I totally disagree. First and foremost believing and subscribing to the idea or concept/theory of race is what makes someone a 'racist'.
Why? I mean, we are the same species, but we are not all the same "breed" (like dogs or any other animal species). I mean we can classify racial
categories by visible traits like skin color, hair, facial features and cranial proportions. Thats biology 101, its not being racist.
But thats ok, I see "race" has become a sensitive issue to discuss so I'll change it to "clinal gradation" is that better? You think it will hurt
"race-sensitive" ppl less?
What a hypocrite world we live in today huh?
I'm so sick of the "politically correct". It makes me sick when I hear I cant do or say something because it will "offend" or "sound bad" for
the other part, specially when the other part is the one whos racist and always looks at me like I owe them something for those 500 years of slavery
or something. It wasnt me... get over it.
But still, I love to see how a black can have a "black pride day" and discos "just for blacks" and "black power" and "black music" and its all
fine, and if I even dare to suggest a "white pride day" they call me a freakin racist. If I open a disco just for "whites" they'll call me a
racist and start blabbing crap about apartheid and racial segregation. And everyone knows that "white power" and "white music" is neo-nazi crap
Sometimes I'm really shocked to see how low we got just to appologise for those 500 years. We do EVERYTHING, we even say we're the bad ones, we hit
ourselves in the chest and cry mea culpa, we elevated the other races we before thought were inferior almost to a god-like status just to appologise
and everything is allowed for them to say, to act, to read, to laugh at. The funny thing is... its never enough. And I got sick of it.
Like I said, get over the abuse and the slavery and all that because they're not the slaves and it wasnt me to enslave them. I'm sick of
apologizing, I'm proud of my race... erm, "clinal gradation". Proud of the greatest empires the world has seen, proud of all the cultural and
scientific breakthroughs we did, proud that the greatest minds the world has ever seen were white, hell I can be proud that the first man in space and
walking on the moon were white. I'm proud of it, just like they're proud of their race for whatever reasons. Like the chinese HAVE to be proud of
their fantastic heritage. Like the arabs have to also. And yes... even the germans
If that hurts anyone, I'm not sorry, like they're not sorry of being proud of theirs.
