I personally feel more attracted to people of my race, ethnic group, culture, religious beliefs, language, etc. Does that make me a racist? No, I
don't think so.
The question of whether it makes you a racist would likely to answered differently by differently people. Personally, I say the question is
irrelevant. It's simple harmonics. Some combinations of things go together pleasingly. Some don't. If you play an A and a C note together, they will
make a chord. If you take that chord and add an F, you will still have a chord. But if instead, you take that A and C and add a B note, you will have
That doesn't mean that B is evil. And if you acknowledge the discordance, it doesn't mean you hate B. You simply recognize that these notes don't go
well together. If you take the F that you previously combined with A and C, and combine it with the B instead, you will also have a chord.
Harmonics are not limited to music. Races are like musical compositions, each sharing a variety of notes and chords, but with their own themes. You
can insist all you want that "we're all people," and you'd be right. Just like all the notes in both "Who Let The Dogs Out" and all the notes in
Mozart's Flight of the Bumblebee are "all notes." But if you try to play those songs together you're probably not going to get a pleasing result.
Yes, some individual notes and some individual chords within each of those songs will be compatible. But the songs as a whole will stand better on
their own than they will together. Races are like this. Yes, some individual people can appreciate and relate to individuals and components of other
races. But unconditionally mixing races and cultures is going to create discordance.
Pizza is not enhanced by adding chocolate syrup. Mozart is not enhanced by having Snoop Dogg provide vocals. If an individual doesn't want to mix with
individuals of another race, there's nothing wrong with that.
