I am a very passive person, looking for compromise before anything else. I hear and see things of hate among people I know, and others I do not. I do
not think ill of them because they believe something I do not, but the ignorance that comes from their mouths has now gotten to me on a few different
The topic that irks me beyond comprehension is the whole 'race' issue, with discrimination, supremacy, and 'racial' divide tying into it.
We have all seen then; some of you reading this may be one of them. The people who see color and assume it is a different race. People who hear folk
tales from people from before and during the Civil Rights era. People who watch or the propagandized history of the American people. They all believe
one thing, despite their differing views, race divides us all.
When people throw the word 'racist' out there when they feel threatened or offended, they are spewing out ignorance. I am not targeting any one
group of people when I say that, EVERY ethnic culture does it, even to themselves (mainly whites against other whites).
We are so easily manipulated by the propaganda that comes out of our history books and memory that we are unable to think with logic; unable to come
to a logical conclusion of our own.
No one is 'racist.' There is only prejudice, and many people in all cultures are so. But why cannot these people see that? Why are people so content
to place one group into the racial pool over another? Just because there were white-looking people that are seen as evil in the history books like
Hitler or Ross Barnett?
I was randomly scrolling through videos on youtube when I came across a National Geographic video on the KKK. I began to watch it but I was quickly
drawn tot he comments below.
KKK: Then and Now
Here are some of the responses:
There will be one day that every human being can life peacefully, But neo nazi´s and kkk members just ruin everything..
Here is my response to him/her:
Yeah because only white people can ruin 'everything.'
No other pseudo-race can do anything wrong, only whites can.
Do you think about what you say before you say it? There are no races, there is only one race! The human race. These groups, the KKK, Neo-nazi's,
Black Panthers, and anything that advocates differences in race ruin everything and are wrong! Learn yourself a book, and not a mainstream history
book. You wont learn a damn thing from that.
Naturally there are comments with explicit, yet very ignorant, language directed toward this fanatical idea of racial differences.
You may recall the newest Resident Evil game, the 5th of the franchise. It has come under scrutiny because it is set in Africa, forcing 'white people
to slaughter African-Americans.'
First of all, they are NOT Americans. They are zombies from Africa. Second, are people not allowed to do anything that may loosely portray
discrimination toward blacks without the black community jumping to the racism card? They called Japanese people racist toward black people. Yeah,
because in their entire history, they have been noted to be radical black-haters.
Here is one of many stories on that subject:
Is Resident Evil 5 racist?
You see it on the MSM. You see it in the history books. You hear it from many elderly people. So it isn't a surprise that people are so ignorant on
this subject. They have learned it, and they can unlearn it, but they don't want to. They actually believe the garbage that comes out of of the
prejudice propaganda. Whatever supports their belief, they will believe it to be true. If it in anyway doesn't support their beliefs, they attack
them and call them racists.
I hope the world does end in 2012, not for all life, but just for humans. We truly deserve it.
