Do you think there’s something wrong with racial/ethnic groupthink?

How I define “racial groupthink” would be the phenomenon of an individual to adhere to or remain loyal to the beliefs of one’s racial/ethnic group, foregoing individuality and outside facts.

In other words “most Asians believe in ‘X’ so that means I must believe in it because I’m also Asian.”

“Most Japanese are Catholic, so I have to be Catholic since I’m Japanese.”

“Most blacks in the US are democrat, so being black, I have to be democrat.”

Further update on that definition, even though I think most of you know what I mean

Racial/ethnic Groupthink:

“phenomenon of an individual to adhere to or remain loyal to the beliefs of one’s racial/ethnic group, primarily because they being to the same racial/ethnic group, and in the process decreasing individuality and shutting/silencing outside facts.”

“I have to believe in ‘X’ because my ethnic/racial group does.”

I think everyone should just be individuals and if they agree with something then it should be based on the MERITS of that something and NOT because SOMEONE believes in that something, so that’s why you’re believing in it.

If you believe in a cause, then it should be because of the facts/merits of the cause, NOT because people who are like you or people you like believe in that cause.
