You are so so cute! Look at them big eyes and curly hair 😍
“I went to a Trump rally and learned that they were just people”. YES. If the democrats want to win the 2020 election they need to have that mindset. But honestly for every one of you there at least 10 liberals who scream bigot and discriminate the second they hear someone voted for Trump. This has happened to me twice so far. by the way not all trump voters are “trump supporters”. I will never attend a Trump rally or wear a maga cap. But the left needs to be tolerant of people who do. Also a lot of us (probably most of us) highly dislike Trumps personality. But his policy especially on economics is what we care about. We also hate radical liberals and socialism.
@backintown I don’t identify with any party but I do consider myself political. I’m concerned the most about bringing people together despite whatever differences they may have among one another. The older I get the more I stray away from religion, political and even enthnicity based labels and the ideologies they put in their followers. But I do understand the importance of trying to understand “people” despite whatever label they claim.Honestly I think that’s how people can truly come together. Understanding and seeing eachother on a simple human level instead of complicating things with political beliefs, skin color or whatever god we choose to believe in. Haven’t quite figured out the “how” part yet but I hope to one day. If I don’t I’ll pass the dream down to my children
@Serafimk You made my day 🙏
Is it possible to ever bridge the divide in our country?
Yes. People think it’s impossible but if one person can understand this concept then anyone should be able to. Understanding individualism and seeking it in other people. All you have to do is inspire people to find the truth out for themselves instead of trusting someone else.See yourself as an individual and understand what you are. What are your dreams, fears, likes, dislikes? What were you like as a child and what’s your favorite/worst memories? What do you want your future to look like and was your past like?While having all that in mind, look at your closet stranger. Erase the labels society gave them and you’ll see yourself in another reality.That little boy and his family eating dinner or walking on the street. Not too long ago that was you. Or maybe you see a man with an attractive woman. That’s what you want in the future. You’re seeing yourself in alternate realities. Labels will keep you from seeing it but without a label all you’ll see is another human being with human thoughts and feelings.In a sense we are eachother. You and I are the same person living in two different realities created by the illusion of difference. But if we find a way to bring our realities together that’s how you bring people together

I wonder why that specific trait
it's judgement by simple form of color, a very simple analysis... quick decision. Takes no effort to think... we conserve thinking resources adn energy when making life and death decisions. Another angle would be ease of justification to subdue and control. The closer we are to our tribe or family, we protect. Outside, we take advantage of. This is "raceism" reflects into anything that has a uniform. Anyone with a certain uniform is the same... UPS driver, police, WWII Germans... and thus can receive our same assumed behavior towards them. We don't think... we treat them all the same based upon how we are trained/conditioned. It's us simplifying life for surivival I think. It's easier than determinig shape, height, etc.. Maybe has to do with how certain people processed information... like seeing color is strong for most. But it isn't just color... Pakistan and Indians are same color, but see the divide there. It divides amoung chosen tribes, beliefs, etc.. it is never as simple as an attribute... but we "learn" something, and then use that auto programming to make decisions. That learning was based upon distortions in life... lies, etc..
Well said! 👏🏼
@WhiteSandBeach Thank you it's always hard to form words on such controversial topics.
I'm full of traumas *finger guns*
*were more important
Another great comment! True!
Why do they, though?
Partly from the generation to generation pass down of ideas and or misconceptions , then when people get into a group and start hearing the same opinions from everyone they can conclude that it must be a fact , and politicians will say whatever the want if itll get them power
"I AM RIGHT BECAUSE EVERYONE AGREES" seems quite retarded. You gave me a very good answer.
Mob mentality, entirely based on emotions rather than thought, so it's very often I find they are not Able to withstand scrutiny Because emotions are not Logical
I don't hate black people. :c
Ignorance on both sides
Example, black children raised and told by their parents that white people are always going to try to keep them down and it's their fault, white children are raised being told everyone is equal but when they try to do anything seen as a non white thing (use of the n word for example in a non racially motivated type way) they are harshly rejected and or punished, why, are we not all equal? Were all equal but not all equal at the same time, and there's a paradox
Why would anyone want to say "nigger" unless it is for educational purposes about the main suppression times...
Racism is natural
People want to say it because the word exists and if you want to word to not have an impact anymore you have to let everyone use it to. the point its meaningless, and yeah perhaps racism is part of nature but what is better, to be born good, or overcome your evil nature through great effort
It’s mostly the Chinese or ethnic Han people that discriminate wise are very minute portion which discriminate I could give you multiple fake and multiple examples of discrimination between Asians in Asia sure white colonized but there are still way more examples of Asian discrimination against whites blacks in their own countries trust me I’m in East Asian historian our admin drinking at this point and probably am not in any condition to debate but let’s not forget about the last empress of the qing dynasty actively supporting the ad think han people against foreigners or how the Chinese are currently trying to breed out the turkeys population in the xijingjon region of China
Let me know when I wake up lol
Uh, dude... I think you're being a HYPOCRITE here.
I mean, I'm from Canada, my all white family has not been racist at all. I can see that you have dealt with some stuff, and I don't deny that, but once you become as ignorant as they are and start becoming prejudice against white people, then... surprise, you're racist!
Well-said! That's so true
I totally agree! I, myself, have faced racism from Indo-Canadians myself, and it's not a very fun thing to go through.
I remember seeing that post you posted an update to battlekitten
I got it, just don't generalise as said "white people". Paradoxically, it sounds racist.
You see, guys, this is called ignorance, and also racism.
I should tell you that there were 1 million white slaves in north Africa only 200 years back.
Dude, you are such a hypocrite it isn't even funny.
Use one post at a time unless you made a mistake, you're giving me 29489 notifs x opinion.And if you tell me that reverse racism isn't a thing you mustn't be alive because you're stupid, not because you're a different race. Equality in the good and in the bad.What you wanted, no?
Did I @ you?
THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I'M ASKING PFFFF
well if you ever work it out let me know though i suspect i will be in my grave by then
Shoot me now
Well its not completely hopeless.Just because we start out as dumb as fuck doesn't mean we can't learn.
Are you sure, Mr Guffrus?
Yeah, I am.People have made remarkable progress in the last 100 years in the western world, we might still have along way to go but there is a chance we could get to a good place if we dont destroy ourselves.
"In the last 100 years". Like I said, [gunshot sound]
Well Rome wasn't built in a day.You clearly have a problem with thinking that you matter, you dont, you are dust in the wind.
Why are you alive then?
“Mostly an American phenomenon”. Bullshit. Huge bullshit. I guess you never heard of the Spanish Inquisition, the holocaust, England oppressing India, the rwandan genocide, etc. I could dig through and find hundreds of examples of racism, prejudice, oppression and genocide all around the world besides the United States. A man your age who has that ignorant belief is insane. This deeply misguided radical liberal belief that only America is evil has to STOP.
Prejudice, discrimination, etc. are found all over the world. You asked about racism. By your definition, British discrimination against the Scottish is racist.
So discrimination is not as bad as racism? Or you can only be racist if your race of people has the social “power” to oppress another race of people? Given that logic those black kids who tortured that mentally handicapped 18yr white kid yelling “fuck trump” and “fuck white people” while broadcasting in on FB LIVE were not racist, just prejudice? Despite that poor kid being powerless to fight back he was not a victim of “racism” because in general white people have more power than black people? Look I want equality, racial healing and peace between different races as much as you do. But this these liberal mental gymnastics aren’t helping anything, only making things worse.
@backintown So you have no perspective on what racism is at all. The only thing you can do is define racism by actions.So you understand that is nonsensical right?Racism is a belief. a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular raceIf a "Black" guy smacks a "White" guy in the face while saying "F trump", that may or may not be racist. I don't know. Does the "Black" guy think he is a member of a race that is superior to the supposed "White" race? Probably not. Did the "Black" guy automatically assume the "White" guy was racist or a Trump supporter? Probably so.Is that racist in and of itself?Of course not.Calling it prejudiced. Call it discriminatory. Stop calling it racist. Racist stuff is racist stuff. And everyone in the year 2019 should know what it is.
But it's not being better... You might be better at being I don't know white because you're pale... But racism?
Racism is pretty much "my race is better than yours because (insert reason)" one way or another it all comes down to that. If someone was raped or mugged by a group other than their own race then they form a judgement based on a few individuals actions that don't reflect an entire race.
Generalising is so damn bad.
It sort of goes hand in hand with sexual prejudice. There was a straight pride parade that in Boston that got mass protested by gays. People fear what they dont understand and unfornately most of us would rather display cognitive dissonance than be open minded.
Do straight people need more rights?No.= Straight parades are useless.Your argument went downhill from truth to dumbassery
What about the Asians
@babylon_of_the_woods Cause people need an excuse to justify their atrocities. Are you happy now?
"Happy" is a big word
Are you just fond of complaining?
I don't have a conduct disorder, which means that my character is not an issue for a sane person.
I didn’t say anything about a conduct disorder. I said do you like complaining?
I never thought of this long enough to reply
What about you?
