    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.
    Hate is never a good thing. What an absurd statement.

    A very interesting experiment done on a 3rd grade class immediately after the MLK assassination.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Unfortunately, racism (or should I say territorialism) was tattooed upon the human soul long before the advent of conventional moral precepts and modern social ideologies. 500,000 years ago (and so much more), when technology was very crude and natural resources seemingly scarce and thus violently and vehemently pursued and defended, there was enormous survival value in making very rapid cognitive distinctions between those who are of your clan and those who are not. Those who in anyway appeared different than one's own kind were to be feared and defended against possible encroachment. This was the genesis of what we now deem "racism" and it remains with us to this very day, and will continue to haunt us for as long as we are human in any contemporary understanding of what it means to be human.

    Do you not hate child rapists? How about people who abuse the elderly?

    Do you hate anyone?

    No.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
