    I heard a black man on a call-in radio show (Chicago WLS) say, "I'm a Negro. It's what I am and what I call myself. I'm not African-American. I resent the word." The talk show host said, "Well, I think that's great, and I completely understand. But what I want you to know is that I can't even use that word on the radio." What have we come to?



    I think I'd probably say "fix it" rather than end it...and only because we've done such a dismal job of educating blacks in the United States. They need the "hand up."
    And you are stating that "blacks" are racist and "whites" are not ????
    wow...

    As long as the mental, psychological and spiritual disorder known as Racism, Bigotry and Irrational Hate goes undetected for what what it is and untreated by society as a whole, then there is absolutely zero reason to believe that you will ever remove the self-destructive reality of Racism.

    If one cured prejudice because of race, we'd be just as likely to be prejudiced against blue-eyed blondes. It's the nature of the human spirit. Just watch children...

    Racism in the USA will probably never go away.
    Racism anywhere will probably never go away__Well, at least not for a very, very, very long time.

    The only thing we can do is to ensure that racism will never be government sanctioned and socially accepted.

    Eliminating racism isn't about eliminating hate. You'll never eliminate hate, and you shouldn't want to-- hate serves a purpose. It's a good thing.

    Eliminating racism is about eliminating race as a standard of assigning human beings into categories. To that end, I would propose first that we eliminate all laws, projects, and programmes that make reference to race, and then on a cultural level run a grassroots campaign of voluntary free-spirited reproductive integration.

    Racism will never end so long as people need an excuse for their personal failures. Playing the victim is easier than looking in the mirror.

    Indeed it is__Hatred inspires us to rid civilization of life's miseries.

    Death, disease, pestilence, infestation, war, slavery, poverty, famine, etc.

    Eliminating racism is about eliminating race as a standard of assigning human beings into categories. To that end, I would propose first that we eliminate all laws, projects, and programmes that make reference to race,
    Racism is not inspired by labels or categories, but by fear which is the primary survival tool of all living creatures.

    Fear prevents whitey from walking down an unlit street in an inner city ghetto after dark.

    Or blacky from entering a redneck honky-tonk in Bloodybucket Alabama on a saturday night.

    and then on a cultural level run a grassroots campaign of voluntary free-spirited reproductive integration.
    Social Re-construction is already in full swing due to the expert inspiration and manipulation of hollywood and television.

    The transition period is the tuffest but in 20 generations or so we'll all look alike__Be assured, it'll be something else by then.

    Of course it will go away. Genetics and interracial marriage will solve the racism problem in the end. When the world has become as "small" as it has then it is inevitable that everyone become the same color/race.

    We have failed miserably.

    Any time we give special consideration to one group, ESPECIALLY when we give it to one group and not another, then that breeds more contempt and distrust between races.

    That is what our government does at this point.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I was about to post something similar. They predict that by the end of this century that most children will have very similar appearance in skin and hair color. We have already completely lost some unique traits such as yellow eyes that once occurred due to genetic dilution.
