    Racial bigotry =/= racism. The former is an individual act, the latter is a social construct dependent upon and defined by social power dynamics. When racial bigotry is supported by national or global social power dynamics, it is racism. Without the support of social power dynamics (at a scale that permeates all sectors of society), racial bigotry is insignificant regarding societal impacts, and thereby very different.


    I have a question for you:

    Do you believe the preservation of the "white race" and "white culture" is a just cause?

    What is that suppose to mean? Are you attempting to build a strawman?

    Cultures change with time and random influence. How does one even believe there is any culture to "preserve?"

    I had hitched onto the Fresno school question, because it is silly to think that Whites, Blacks or Fusions from similar social backgrounds could be more or less capable of pretty basic teaching, if they have studied it. That seems a silly question.

    It's a question. I'm not allowed to ask questions? If he says no, I've no intention of arguing about it.

    Preserve as in keep other races out, not as in stagnate.

    I disagree. I see racial bigotry as a prejudiced based on appearance. I see racism is specifically believing one race is superior to another. I don't think my beliefs are wrong in this regard.

    Well, sorry. I can't relate. I don't think like that. I guess you do though.

    Agreed. That has been my point the whole time. The issue should never be whether a person has the right skin color to teach a course, but whether he knows his material and can competently teach it. And if the white guy happens to be the one who is the most competent, the white guy should get the job. And if he knows his stuff and can teach it, his skin color will be of absolutely no importance whatsoever to his class.

    I believe that position is racism apologism. I understand if you disagree.

    You don't think like what?

    I don't believe in a "white culture", but some people do. If you don't mind, I'll wait for his answer.
