That is rather unusual these days in these formats, some common ground.engineczar wrote: ↑Wed Jan 31, 2018 12:32 pm7. Everybody is a racist to some degree, you are pointing out the obvious. but I challenge you to find a example that defines me as one, and if you do, I will make my best effort to work on correcting it. Same applies for hypocrisy. Please judge yourself with the same scrutiny to be fair. Please note, most racists first defense is to deny it...... possibly but I can honestly say I've never made a decision in my life where race entered into my decision, same with gender. In my eyes electing someone based on race or gender is no different than not electing someone based on race or gender. To me equal rights means equal equal rights. .....hypocrisy is an interesting social condition, I believe to some extent everyone suffers from hypocrisy from time to time.
On #7 above, I underlined a comment that addresses my original comment. most people cannot see their own systemic racism, that is very common, I do not exclude myself from that group. and why most deny it outright, I believe they are sincere, and MOST people know racism is wrong. But saying you have never done something, is akin to grading your own spelling test in the 3rd grade, everyone gets a perfect score. The real test is when you walk in others shoes realistically, and your POV changes, it helps see things differently. This is a topic that requires much discussion to fully cover.
And It is noted you did NOT succumb to "rock throwing".
How about this, I have never met a person of any race, that does not have a racist element.
The point is, nobody is perfect, and more importantly, its apparently hard to see one's own racism, no matter what the degree.
