Racism is generally thought of as the belief in the superiority of one race over another...

It follows that people should then think their race is the superior one, if you don't believe that your own kind is best what are you???

If a person marries a person of a different race does that mean he/she believes that their race is inferior to the race of his/her mate???

Can they be thought of as race traitors???

Can racism be benevolent???

How far can we go before we attack each other over these questions???

1. You are human. Why divide because of color of skin?

2. No.

3. Yes... a lot of people think a lot of things, right and wrong. In this case, imo, it is wrong and ridiculous. Doesn’t mean there aren’t ridiculous people who would think of them as “traitors”

4. Yes. Racism comes in many forms and is sometimes disguised as benevolence.

5. Don’t know.

If someone asks this type question, does it mean they are mentally retarded in their thought processes?

Racism is an irrational fear of being a victim of racism in the future. It's a fear of their own life which makes them unhappy. So as at school, where kids would find differences, like big noses, ginger hair, they do it to make themselves feel better by making others feel bad.

You will find people try to divide on many things. Racism is just one. We have wealth, sex, religion, height, weight, hair colour, ethnicity, accent, seual preference, looks, age, penis size, breast size, lack of hair, intelligence,... the list goes on. Where there are insecure idiots, there are bullies who seek to divide on anything they can find.

Why is racism always depicted as negative???

What's wrong with saying my people are the best???

What about I feel sorry for those people they cannot take care of themselves...

And then...those people are great they conquered the world...
