The word race doesn't apply to your three examples. What on earth are you babbling about?


Before going into attack mode, it is advisable to read the post that was being responded to. That makes a poster look a bit smarter.

TemperMental67: 

 

Make black people the enemy, and you continue to exercise a measure of control over certain whites as well.   They just do it more abstractly today than they used to.   And still, it appeals to lower income whites.

 

 

True. It's a huge problem that lower income whites are unable to realize that  "those people" have little to do with their economic situation, it's the policies enacted by the people they elect. They seem to love having scapegoats to blame.

Would you call defending "black only" ceremonies "directly" or "abstractly" defending racism?

There is a poster here on this forum that repeatedly accuses the opposite political persuasion of racism despite the continuous exhibition of racism by his political persuasion.  The 'pot calling the kettle black'. 

 

His point, as I understand it, is that someone who is not racist would completely ignore  differing characteristics of another person.  That is not consistent with the behaviour of life forms capable of recognizing difference....at least as research shows it to be. The mistrust of and the agression toward things different seems instinctive.  Could be a survival thing.

 

 


You either misunderstand his point or are deliberately misrepresenting it. "Seeing people as people" does not mean not seeing the obvious such as gender or skin color. It means treating people as people without regard to such observations. For example it means not assuming that a person is incapable based on such observations.

It has been. The only apparent reason for this topic is to support the "Resistance" or the Russian long running efforts to sow dissent among our people.

 

There is no way that we of the right are expressing an opposite view.

I think @aruzinsky's defense of racism/bigotry was pretty direct.
