OK, so this community seems to be about people who "speak their mind" so that is just what I am going to do. If you do not want to hear/read this than please don't, no one is going to put a gun to your head and force you to. This is going to touch on the racism issue because, yes, it does bother me but I'm not going to sit here and call people all kinds of names because we are allowed to have our beliefs and opinions, these are just mine.


So it seems that being a racist is the cool thing to do now a days which, if you ask me, is a waste of time because no matter how much you hate someone for their race you can't help but wonder why. I mean, seriously, what has someone of an opposite race done to anyone that you have resorted to hating an entire race? It had to be something pretty heinous for thing to go that far that you, anyone, hates an entire race of people. The most obvious of this in this community is the hate for blacks. Why? I understand the views some of you have when you call them niggers, such as the "asshole blacks" but what about the asshole white? What do we call them and why are they not mentioned? Being a racist is such a waste of time and all it does it suck up what little time you have on this earth. I know I don't want to look back on my life when it is my time to go and look at all the time I spent hating others for reason unknown or that are a waste. Life is too short to begin with and although you may not like another person because of their skin color you should just suck it up and deal with it because if they weren't meant to be here God would not have had put them on this earth, but he did and we are all of God's creation no matter the skin tone or anything. Sorry if my being Religious offends anyone but as an American I have that right and I intend to use all the rights I have an American such as the freedom of speech I am using to post this. And, yes, before someone says it, I understand you all are subject to the same such freedoms but when these freedoms are perversed to preach hatred it is a sad thing. Men and women have died and bleed to defend the rights we have but so many people do not seem to care or even notice and as much as you may not want to admit it, blacks have died to defend what we all take advantage of. I am not a racist but I am guilty of hate, as most of you know already I hate Nazis, but that is a different story for a different time. I'm not here to force anyone to change their views and/or opinions on what they believe I am just here to offer some insight into the world we all are living in. Just review your life and think of a time that changed it so drastically that you must answer it with a hate so powerful it blinds you from the world around you. Their is nothing in life that should cause a person to become a racist or answer anything with racism. Remember, and this is the best argument I can offer, in the end of time, at the end of our lives, we are going to die and we all end up in the same place, the ground, unless cremation is a choice one makes but even than we will all return to where we arose, the earth. Death does not discriminate, you can be black or white or even purple but no matter your color death is coming and nothing will stop it so stop the hating and enjoy life while you can because there is no telling when your last day on this earth will be. Hell, you could walk out of your house tomorrow and get hit by a bus, or a tree branch could fall on you, or even trip and crack open your skull. That is all I can think to say on the topic. Oh, one more thing, with this I am not trying to start any fights or arguments, I just wanted to make my point before I forgot but if you do have any comments please, by all means, leave them but all I ask is that we try to be grown up about this, in other words, no name calling or any criticism because all that will show to me is that you have no true point to make and it would just be a waste of both our time.

Thank You.

Hmm, I couldn't be bothered to read all that. But I read the first sentance and gathered it was about your opinions to racism and about people thinking its "cool". Well, my dear. I fucking hate racism. I have many a friend who call themselves nazis and what not, and it doesn't really be=other me as its their opinion, as long as they don't expect me to go along with all that racial descrimination jazz. People should just use a few more brain cells and realise that every single human being is the same. Regardless of skin colour, relion, beliefs etc.

The thing we must put firstly is that racism is a mere form of social discrimination based on social roles rather than appearance.
One may not deny their own prejudices at all, as they are a tool for survival in human society- for instance, when hearing most anecdotes on Russians and alcoholism, it is natural for us to assume that the given individual is infact more than just a man or woman of a few innocent beers.
Ofcourse, being very politically correct- the fascist movement across Europe in the post-WWI period had originated in Italy for a purely financial stance; even more so for WWII. I would love to stress upon the fact that the tool of discrimination is instinctual for the survival of a human in the wild [and also rather unfortunately "civilization"].
Racism within itself is defined as consciously stressing upon one's obvious racial markings; where are you heading? :]

Yes- but one not thought out far enough. Patriotism is within itself a pure form of nationalism...contradictions can be found too easily.
