Alright so I'm pretty disturbed by the type of thread dominating this forum the last couple of days. Clearly racism isn't dead. When I say say racism I of course mean that ugly trait in humans to hate a person based on the color of their skin or their ethnic background or more simply...you're different than me so I hate you.
Hate activates stress hormones and stress kills so if nothing else, think of self preservation. Hate and anger are also the most easily manipulated emotions and instinctively humans know this but when purposefully used against people psychologically, it has devastating impact that lasts through generations.
This forum's single biggest problem, is an addiction to drama. You can post a positive or constructive thread about literally whatever you like; you'll be lucky if it gets five replies. Start a thread about how the Muslims are coming, on the other hand, and it will go on for 30-40 pages, and every post will be starred. The groupthink is also chronic, and is mutually reinforcing. There are fairly obviously a large group of the most utterly vile conservatives on this forum. They seek out the most hate and fear filled threads they can find, and then star and flag them as much as they can. I've repeatedly seen it happen. They deliberately work tirelessly to promote negativity. I am really hearing you, here. I've been thinking of leaving this forum for good over the last 2-3 days. It has just become an absolute ocean of bile. When I posted a thread about reconciliation with Muslims, the first response I got, was a refutation from a person who was using the portrait of Vlad Tepes as his avatar.
I honestly can't remember the last white individual I came across who wasn't a fairly open white supremacist.
Luckily I do know plenty of white people that aren't racist. But I have also known plenty who are the "I'm not racist but..that person/those people blah blah..." types, in other words they're racist. Makes for interesting times when I'm exactly the kind of person who will call someone on it lol.
so if nothing else, think of self preservation.
all it really takes it's "whispering in ears" something to the effect of "they want what you have"
culture is what defines our differences

No, genetics defines your culture /differences.

I posted in another thread today that I believe the next true step in human evolution will be the realization that we are all human.
Until we accept each other as different people, but all human beings worth the same consideration, this weakness we have will be exploited by those who wish control us. It has been done with race, religion, even birth place since the begining of time. The sad part about this is so many of us help to propagate this mentality as every day life. We view ourselves as belonging to a perticular sect are group, and work so hard to differentiate ourselves from the one thing everyone of us can not deny. We are human.
Bald, screaming,and unhappy we all came into this world, and yes I would even go so far as to agree that we may still retain a bit of the pact mentality. But not one of us was ever born knowing they were Christian, Muslim, Black, White.
There is nothing wrong with knowing who you are and where you come from, Just always remember that you are part of a large group. The only one you were really born as
" A HUMAN "

If we share 99.99 % DNA then tell me,
Why do Asians have little eyes?
Why do white people have different colour hair and eyes?
Why do black people have ingrown noses?
