    It indicates faulty logic.

    I consider racism irrational, simple as that.

    That is BY FAR the most likely case. Those Privelege never understand their Priveledges until they Lose Them. But HEY, your Priveledges are largely based on Pigment so you never have to worry/experience/understand about the other side!

    YAY FOR YOU PINKBOY!

    Read above. We're not all granted with the Right given to Pink-Coloured persons.

    Read above. You understanding is based entirely on being treated better than everyone else.

    Yay For You!

    I expect everyone to be treated equally.

    Failure to do so is a problem.


    Edit: Everyone includes all races.


    My environment growing up was presented as background, not an example of racism.
    I was trying to explain that I did not encounter it, in any significant amount, outside museums and historical studies.

    To you, it's apparently an ever-present thing.

    To me, its a sad history which should never be repeated.

    Western sanctions and trade embargoes don't help. I'm not a fan of the man far from but its not simple as people on this thread would lead u to believe

    I know it does not.

    This is a problem that needs correcting.

    You're part of that problem, when you place races in a hierarchy.

    World is Racist, someone responds by sticking to their Race even if it treats them as an outsider, person is not responding to the conditions of the world but his own personal preferences.

    I don't own a mine.


    But seriously, stop throwing "you're dumb" insults at me.


    Individual people are racist.

    Some areas of the world have racist institutions and/or governments.

    The US used to.

    None of that is acceptable to me.
