Are we born tribal and afraid of others?
I don't believe we are. It's all learned.
Then who was the first ones to reach tribalism? Cheetahs and orangatans have evolutionary traits theyre born with.
@ItsMeItsMe1989 yeah I didn't choose it.
You’re saying there’s a way for a human baby to be born and raised without one shred of racist and sexist behavior? No.
People are quick to use the "I was born this way" defense to justify their behavior. Also amazing thing about what I'm saying has been verified by several studies in several scientific fields such as social science and psychological science. So its not really speculation on my end. I would suggest doing your own research. There really isn't any excuse for not doing so. The greatest thing the internet has give us collectively as a species is giving us access to wealth knowledge that we wouldn't have easy access to without it.
I’m not saying that’s an excuse. If you can’t see past senseless emotional hatred and fix it, that’s on you.
But we have to all admit that however infrequently we have bad thoughts and fix them.

How can you say you’re 100% not racist?
if so, then tell me... who's the target or your 5% racism? who do you hate? or who do you feel superior to?
It can be as senseless as road rage, anger toward my boss, etc. We have to learn that most hatred is senseless emotion. And then fix it as the thoughts come in.
frustration towards traffic or authority is not racism...
It is if you think a deragatory remark about race, gender, etc…. Racism is nothing more than that. “Racists” are ones who never correct themselves or feel badly for their flawed remarks.
so, tell me... which racist or sexist remarks have you thought about people... but didn't blurt out (or maybe you did)?
A female Asian driver cut me off the other day. Bad thought…extinguished. You gonna go the holier than thou route? Study human behavior and you’ll know we can’t be perfect.
well, you are going the " I'm shitty so everyone else has to be shitty too" route... and that's what this is.
You’re saying you have no bad thoughts and you’re god’s perfect Angel. Right…
bad thoughts yes, but racist... nofor example, ever since I joined this site, I've thought you were idiotic... and later with time, I confirmed it... those are bad thoughts, but is not about your race, I don't even know which is it... so no, I am not being racist
I’m glad I’m being seen. But just to reiterate, you think someone can be 100% not racist?
Of course. I actually think most people aren’t “racist” as the label. But we aren’t 100% not racist.
I know. I agree.
Lots of claims here…no proof. Typical cuckservative.
No, actually plenty of evidence for it. Your entire premise is that white people are racist,, that is racist, by literal fucking definition that is racist. You get presented proof all the time, your just to fucking stupid to accept it. I mean I presented you with a law, you said it didn't say what it said it did, I then gave you the entire law verbatum, and you still couldn't accept it. I've presented scientific studies to you and actual data charts from multiple sources and still you didn't accept it. This isn't about rationality, your part of a cult,, you are brainwashed, and you are stupid as fuck because you have been trained your entire life to never question the narrative and so you couldn't think critically if I put a gun to your head (hence why you are NPC's, you have base responses that have been given to you and their is no unique thoughts or dialogue with you people.). So lots of claims, overwhelming proof, your just to fucking stupid to understand it OR your so evil and corrupt you know its all true but don't care because to you all that matters is hurting as many people as possible because your so stupid you think when everything comes tumbling down your going to be the one at the top of the rubble heap when in reality, your going to be buried under it all with the rest of us as the ultra rich take over (as you have done exactly what they have asked of you).Its just as shame that some one as stupid as you gets to fuck over the rest of us.
As I believe we've discussed... I think all people and all races (which is a pointless label) are tribal by nature.
and you push an agenda that encourages tribalism, specifically creating tribal conflict between races, whats your point? Encouraging violence, encouraging hate, encouraging division is not a good thing (especially if your trying to argue that we should all get along. It would make sense if your pushing for an ethno state but otherwise your behavior and actions contradict your proclaimed goals.).
(Sigh) I’m not encouraging tribalism…I’m just not ignoring it. You right wingers just want to not talk about it. No crt, no teaching racism. We come out of the womb afraid of others. Right?
But you are encouraging it, your saying that every one is racist (not accurate, tribalistic is not racism), and that we need to constantly beat a dead horse and show that people are racist (but not all people, just white people.). You also advocate for constantly talking about things that happened in the past that no one alive took part in and no one alive or dead could ever rectify thus ensuring that animosity and hate remains high. You make excuses for bad behavior in certain groups (minorities) and encourage it saying that its never their fault and thus they have no reason to alter the behavior even knowing that it will improve their lives by orders of magnitude, etc. etc. So yes, you are encouraging it. America on the other hand discouraged it, they tried to hammer home that while their is tribalism, every one is apart of the American tribe, that their was not black white jewish christian, their was just americans. This helped not only encourage a positive tribalism but also a tribalism that by its nature was fare more welcoming then other tribes (as you have to be born into a race, but you don't have to be born into being an america, you are raised a religion, but you don't have to be raised American to be an American). You actively fight against this. So yes, you are encouraging tribalism and racism by selectively editing and revising history, ignoring data, and trying to pit each group against each other while undermining the one unifying idea we had.
Simply that we can’t be perfect, this can’t be 100% “not racist”. Simple math.
I dont understand how being not racist and perfection are connected? Like sure i can't be polite all the time to people that doesn't mean i should drop everything and be an asshole
I guess it’s a way of seeing racism as not some monolithic evil and more just day to day BS.
Yes but I’m not offering a solution in exchange for lifetime of obedience.
How does someone become a not-racist then? Or is everyone just a racist to some varying degree?
Honestly it can’t happen. We can’t become perfect. I just correct the flaws as I go.
Ok. I disagree with you but I still appreciate your willingness to be introspect and adapt.
Do you think someone can be 100% not racist?
But we’re tribal.
and tribal is completely different then racist. Racist is believing in the innate superiority or inferiority of a race, tribalism is preferential treatment to your way of life, your belief structure, and to your community. Notice one is about race, the other is not.
Tribalism, is about native americans, you idiots
tribalism is racism moron.
tribalism[ˈtrībəˌlizəm]NOUNthe state or fact of being organized in a tribe or tribes.derogatorythe behavior and attitudes that stem from strong loyalty to one's own tribe or social group."a society motivated by cultural tribalism"
Don’t see the straw man part…but ok.CRT is simply a boring lesson about how racism permeates a system.
So, would you admit that racism can come from any race? And do you admit that leftists are the ones in power and in charge in the US?
Sure, lefties have brief and limited majorities federally. State by state? Pretty sure GOP runs 30 outta 50.
Don't be deliberately obtuse. Power in the US primarily doesn't rest with legislators.-Who controls the federal bureaucracy?-Who controls a majority of the judiciary?-Who controls most of the media?-Who controls public and especially higher ed? -Who controls big corporations?And again, do you admit that racism can come from any race?
Oh I’m being perfectly plain: Statehouses and Gov’s are the real power in relation to everyday citizens.
And Fox News, NewsMax etc still keeps their top spots. So not sure where you fcks get the liberal media argument from.
GOP doesn't equal conservative. And Democrats had little trouble in 2020 bypassing legislatures when it came to ignoring the legislatures‘ right to set election procedures in their states. Furthermore, while state legislatures may sometimes have Republican majorities, that doesn’t mean the bureaucrats, who are given lots of power to implement laws by legislation, are conservative- they usually are not. And everyone knows the federal bureaucracy is dominated by leftists (Obama prioritized that), plus federal govt often abuses its power. The power of the leftist media was amply demonstrated by the coverup of the Biden Crime Family’s corruption, e. g., Hunters laptop, which a number of voters said would have caused them to vote differently had they known about it. Fox isn’t conservative, and Facebook is a leftist monopoly. Twitter and Google Are also leftist. Incidentally, German state-controlled media uses a lot of content from the New York Tomes. But you still haven’t answered my question: „Do you admit that racism can come from any race“? And does CRT as taught in schools and in corporate and government training sessions mention racism and discrimination from any race other than whites? Someone with as much guilt as you should be able to answer this. You
Every time I read your posts I hear Charlie Browns mom.
And every time I read your posts, I'm reminded of what self-hating scion of segregation and slavery is like- a pathetic cuck. They're not hard questions, but I'll ask it again:1) Do you admit that racism can come from any race“?2) And does CRT as taught in schools and in corporate and government training sessions mention racism and discrimination from any race other than whites?
1) Yes any race can be and are racist. 2) the basic lesson of CRT I’ve read doesn’t mention any race. Just how it can be systemic. It’s actually boring and not as controversial as conservatives make it out. What teachers do with their lessons are another thing. But given the standardized testing I doubt there’s much room for creative racial teaching… :)
Now my turn:1) What race has the most power and are most likely to deny jobs, etc, from other races?
Making snap judgments about a race.
You’re so naive.
I guess you could say tribalism has a purpose. Race is a stupid label we need to do away with.
We can try to fix our stupid, flawed behavior -like racism- and still not hate ourselves.
You can try, and you’ll fail.
We’re born flawed and suspicious of everyone. In a way it is born.
That's wrong too. Suspicion is also a learned behaviour.
Suspicion isn’t learned. That’d be like saying love is learned. We have emotions out of the womb, good and bad.
Love is absolutely learned. It's the first thing we learn if we have good parents. Sadly some people never learn love and they become adults like Charles Manson.
We learn what these emotions are called by society. But even if we’re born in the woods baby cry in anger, sadness, etc.
And I take it you believe humans are perfect?
No.. you’re proof of that.
