Racism and Prejudice is okay to me... TO A POINT.
Though we humans can't always be accountable to what our ancestors were/did, we often show the same characteristics as they have/had. And by sticking close to our culture and blocking others off, we often make those characteristics completely true throughout our bloodline in generations.
It may be considered racist to attribute a certain food-liking, a favorite past-time, a fault, and etc to a certain person of a particular race... but the thing is, there's still a high probability that they do like that kind of food, have that as a favorite past-time, have that flaw, and etc... certain people would claim "everyone can! not just them!", and though true, you can't deny the fact that you most often see the pattern in a certain culture.
It's racist, but it's generally true. It's just part of the culture, get over it.
I don't have a problem with that. I just see that as to how we humans speculate things.
...it's kinda' like how some of us claim to know everything there is to know about a species of cat, plant, or whatever... we have it all down on textbook, but in a huge fashion: That can be considered racist, as there can be creatures of the same species who just defy all previous written-behaviors.
...exactly the same with humans of race.
However, I am highly against two forms of racism:
- Claiming racism through racism.
- Completely incorrect racism.
In the first, a person claims something is racist but show themselves being a racist - Emo's classmates and teacher show this by claiming he's racist for defending himself against a black student (who was at fault with incorrect racism)... though not often thought of: it's racist to defend someone just because of their race.
...nowadays, if you say anything relating to the African American race, and you aren't one: You're a racist.
But you see, that standard alone is racist, since it insinuates the idea that blacks are always the victims and that whites that disagree with blacks are white-power-freaks.
That, I certainly do hate.
The second, incorrect racism.
I've met a few people considered racist for calling someone a certain race. And I've met a few people considered racist for proving someone wrong on race-facts.
For instance, an old classmate of mine in a mostly white private school was considered racist for saying that one of my other classmates was Chinese, when many said he was Korean.
The "racist" was correct at this point, he was Chinese. In fact, he proved the entire class was racist because the OTHER classmate was Korean, the one everyone believed to be Chinese.
The students mixed their races up, and one student tried to defend himself by saying "they just look kinda' the same, I got them mixed up".
Even more racism.
...I also have a problem with many anti-white blacks. They often attack anyone that looks white, even if their blood was never a part of that history.
Even if that person was, that's still racism.
Being black doesn't make you invincible - it especially doesn't give you a right to bully others just because your ancestors were treated badly.
Your ancestors would be ashamed of you. You know NOTHING of what they went through. It doesn't matter if you were given weird looks or treated badly because of your race: It gives you no right to claim "vengeance for what they did to your ancestors". Because your ancestors went through worst, fought and died in their own battles, and you're just the spoiled brat who's living in good times but are too concerned about the little things and blaming them on every white person you see. You're using your history as a cheap pass, you're a slacker, you're a crybaby, you're a sad excuse of a human being. You wanna' get back at white people? : Be successful, and don't let your blood give you anything more than justified (no hateful, no wall-like, just happy) pride -that's-all-.
I also hate the argument of "keep the race clean". ...the idea of anti-race-mixing...
Many of us humans consider us non-racist or non-prejudice... acting like we've lived past our shameful and barbaric ways of non-justified prejudice... Yet how is that so if we don't want other bloods mixing into ours?
"Oh, the culture will be lost..."
No it won't. It never can be. As long as the person is raised in it, they'll never truly lose it.
"Oh, it's just never the same, you see..."
No, it's just never the same because the people of the culture are racist and don't want to accept another colored folk into the inner-circles. It's pride, that's all it is.
Races count, no duh - but it counts because we want to make it count. We're too scared of losing "that part of us" that keeps us unique - because in reality: There's nothing else in most of us that makes us unique.
So we cling onto our blood and culture tightly, hoping it keeps us interesting.
I'll say it now: I hate you people who do that. You're all despicable. The instant moral standards drop, I'll make sure you're the first to go. You're no good to anyone, and you're definitely no good to me. You may call me prejudice for singling you spineless freaks out, but I'm f***ing glad I am. This world doesn't need you - you just spread lies and awful blood to the rest of the world - you never learn because you never want to.-you're nothing more than a plague. You hide behind judicial rules from getting killed, calling racism on any person you see giving you a bad eye - but you're the real racists... the real threat and annoyance... you better grow a spine quick once moral standards decline...
I'll admit some of California's schools are rather low in the educational standard....... but that's SOME.Quote:
@Scourge, Abu and Soshi: this'll really piss you guys off, My history teacher kept dissing California, saying how behind they were. And when I was registering earlier in the year, the secretary(who said she was the counselor at the time), didn't believe that I was advanced because I was from California, when they didn't even offer classes high enough for me. Then she said California standards were soo low, and told me I should cut my hair if I wanted to play any sports because it was the law.
It's a common misconception that most are.
And what they often lack in educational standard, they make up for in diversity - acceptance - and sometimes, technology.
...some school areas definitely are filled with nothing but low-lives, but they're all the public sees... the public never sees how far ahead our actual teaching-styles are, nor do they see our great schools with great departments on many fields.
But hey whatevs, I'm used to people dissin' on Cali. They jus' jealous cuz they still livin' in the past.
