Copy of - Racism

I say that anyone who uses the distinctions of race to argue, judge, excuse, blame, criticize, politicize, incite, agitate, allocate, study, educate, etc. is a RACIST !

Anyone !

Using the distinctions of race separates those of one race from the rest of humanity & that which is common to ALL humanity gets lost in the process. That is, after all, what distinctions do!

One has to rise to the level of ALL humanity to enjoy the brotherhood thereof & NOT sink into the quagmire & machinery of blame, anger, jealousy, despair, victimhood, irresponsibility & lack of dignity which RACISM provides.

I can identify with the problems that mothers & fathers, brothers & sisters, sons & daughters have: their toils, angst, anxiety, pain & suffering as well as joy, exhilaration & happiness. When you separate yourself from me by racial distinctions you cloud my perception so that it's next to impossible to have that experience.

There is a natural tendency in the machinery of the human being to avoid being wrong, to make others wrong & to always be right (or at least not wrong). We're stuck - the machinery is very good at what it does - perhaps only a Zen Master can get around it. Evolution may need another thousand years or so to get rid of this programming & live by the Golden Rule, but by then, evolution will probably have rendered the racial distinctions moot!

I say that it's time to quit using them NOW in our communications. They are really NOT needed. One can cry with deep empathy for the sadness, despair & poverty of other human beings like those whom Hurricane Katrina has made sick & homeless. Let us remember our humanity before we remember our various separateness.

google race vs species – if you manually google “race vs species” (recommended) you also get expansions of the following:

People also ask
  • Is a race a species?
  • Do other animals have different races? 
  • Is the human race a species? 
  • What is the difference between race and ethnicity? 
  • What is the definition of a race of people? 
  • Are elves and humans different species? 
  • How long humans have been on Earth? 
  • How old is the man? 
  • Can Elves and Men mate in Lord of the Rings? 
  • How tall are the dwarves in The Hobbit movie?
I only bring this up because an article (*) said that 

Race relations in the U.S. is our No. 1 problem.

to which I say it is being ginned up to be. One would think that with 8 years of president Obama the country would be back to nice & harmony, eh? Whatever he did seems to have steered things in the opposite direction. Maybe he is still community organizing & undermining the niceness & harmony from the outside with agitators.

I say focus on the human stuff as human challenges which cover all spectrums:
  • poverty
  • education
  • jobs
  • violence
  • gangs
  • squalor
  • disintegrated families
  • authority relations – police, government, military
  • “the swamp”
