Racism Problems

Post  Anonymous_Voice on Fri May 09, 2008 8:46 pm

What's the deal with racism? I just still can't get over the fact that in the past times, there were discrimination amongst us (despite it being a long time ago). What's the whole point to it, since the Caucasians thought the other races were different and treat them like garbage. And now they have rules and laws about discrimination in the modern world. It would've been better off if they had treat each other as equals before. What are your thoughts about it?

Well, when you look at a rotten apple and a good apple, would you throw out the rotten one? It's all about the way you look at things. Second point is that we do not understand why those people are different colored. So we make up story such as that people turned black because they are worshipers of Satan. Most of the racism is from religion, and that's my view.

If your body is exposed to a lot of sun (like the Africans) then you need a tougher pigment and tougher skin. The Africans skin is good for dealing with excess sunlight. Anyways, racism is not just something we can get over. It is not just in the past either. We still view blacks as inferior, ourselves (whites) as superior but nobody looks at the science of why they are black. Proper education is needed, definitely.

Hmm. You almost state it as if being "black" is actually an impediment to being a valuable member of society. On top of that, you made the generalization that all "white" people view "black" people as inferior, which is most certainly untrue.

Remember that short and simple answers are better than science. If you tried to prove to people using science, you'll get locked up in jail like Galileo.

I generalized nothing. The simple point is that you don't see blacks making fun of whites now do you?

I have seen racism go both ways. You have made another generalization.

I don't know what happens in Canada but in England (especially the areas I lived in) Black people had nothing on white people when it came to status. I'm not generalizing, simply observing. My main point is that racism problems are not just in the past. They are here, now and shall continue well into the future.

'Tis the same everywhere. You guys are just in Oakville's bubble if you remember Mr. Butler. I have spent more of my life in England and have seen slightly more. Except maybe Eugene, he has lived in China and China is not doing so well right now.

I frequently leave Oakville, it doesn't interest me. I have a lot of experience outside. I've only been trapped here for 10 months.

Maybe how I phrased my point was not clear. What I am trying to say is that due to past relations between blacks and whites (since that is an easy one to discuss), racism will not stop. Both sides are guilty now (not all on both sides). The whites still feel like they are above the black people and the black people are bitter over actions that occurred many years ago.
