That's really sad when parents teach their kids to be that way. I can't believe they even went to the lengths of removing him from school and home schooling him just to keep him away from black people.
We use to talk about being in the Airforce or Army together. We was my best friend. We use to stay at eachothers house's and, everything. Then his mom met that guy. And, it was all over.
That was a lot taken away from him. He missed out on some good times.

What nationality were your ancestors who were slaves to the black Muslims? It seems like you must know which tribe they were from. That's a really interesting idea about people being pushed to all be the same now. That actually is true, but I never looked at it that way before. I'm surprised to hear you say the white male is on the extermination list. That seems to be the most privileged color and gender in society. When you say we could be in Nazi takeover days again, do you mean as far as people being killed for their race or ethnicity?
100%. I couldn't have said it better myself. You see more racial conflict between working class people than middle-upper class people also. Some people try to make that about a lack of intelligence and education, and that may be a factor. But it's also because they have less, and they have less to lose. The closer you get to the bottom, the less comfortable your life is, the more you're likely to be tribal. In fact for prisoners, with the constant threat of violence, their race determines who they'll choose to ally with.Our education system is also very left-leaning, meaning that everything we're taught from the time we begin school is about the benefits of multiculturalism and diversity, and the evils of racism and tribalism. The more educated you are, the more you've been taught to believe in those things. I'd argue that people have to be taught not to be racist more than they have to be taught to be racist.
I get what you're saying. People do tend to group information that way.
racism occurs in every culture across all of history. it can't be something that is taught. nobody is teaching it
every culture is racist so it can't be taught. it must be nature
No, it’s a learned behavior.
not really a substantial response when i countered this already. i said every culture has an in group bias and regards outsiders as undesirable. thus racism is NOT a learned behavior. every culture does it
For a more substantial response every culture regards outsiders as outsiders based on their theos/religion/society and those concepts are taught to their children. If a group of mixed races (Hispanic, black, Asian, European) kids grew up on an island without any formal education they wouldn’t have racial bias based on skin color when an outsider came to the island.However above the outsider argument the core of racism is hatred for another human being. That hatred/fear is very much a learned bias and has been taught to each generation based on history. Some of the most violent and hated racial stereotypes exist today not due to nature at all, but based on children learning to hate a skin color whereas they may see an outsider as simply an outsider but that hatred isn’t associated.So it’s nurture and not nature. Humans are born with a color of skin and raised in a society with eyes to see their color is different from others in that society. But nurture will dictate is those diverse colors are celebrated or feared.
disliking outsider does not come from religion or culture, you can't make that argument if EVERY SINGLE GROUP does somethingit is biology
Not every group is racist. Not everyone in a group is racist. It’s an individual learned behavior. If a white baby is raised in a black family does that person feel hatred towards their family?
by the way, I am mixed. So if it’s biology which race am I supposed to hate?
you are being too simplistic about this. a trait existing in only some people and not others does not mean it is taughtsome people are genetically more likely to be alcoholics, this doesn't mean they were taught to be more likely to be alcoholics and being mixed doesn't disprove that racism is taught either, the actual genetic fact of racism is that you hate things that are DIFFERENT from you. not that you will hate a specific race
