The realities of racism are a completely taboo subject. The basic fact is that each and every person is a tiny bit racist, and I know this will get me
alot of flames and denials but it is indeed the truth. I don't want to get into genetics, because I know nothing of the subject, but over history,
our ancestors USUALLY kept with their own previous tribes, communities, regions, countries, centuries of this, and in the last 400 years all of that
has changed quickly. No longer is another culture and people a vast journey away, but right next door. This is a shock to the past and what was hard
wired into us, to know your own and distrust others. Go watch nature, you'll see this. Birds for instance, one might occasionally see a woodpecker
playing with a blue jay, but this would be a rarity, as the woodpecker spends it's time with another woodpecker and the jay the jay. Another example
of hardwired instinct would be spiders, or snakes. Very, very few people have no fear or apprehension of these creatures. In fact, the majority just
about hates them. That's because we know through history to know they are to be avoided.
We enjoy the glorious aspects of multiculturalism in food, music, land, history these are universals in humanity, but more often than not distance
ourselves from the people, the culture, because one is inclined to keep to what is familiar. Now surely this is not always the case, but it is more
often than not on a broad scale.
The key question in America was once "What's your religion?" over "Where are you from?", and this has switched.
Racist is a powerful word. In the modern day it is an immediate attack on your stature, your character. It's is an automatic degradation tool, much
like another word that was used in the past. It's a word that is inherently evil current day. To admit to being a racist is seen as some sort of
repentance. But I state and believe that the majority of the world is racist in one way or another, though you'll be hardpressed to get any of them
to admit it.
