    Re: Is racism wrong?

    It is a given that discriminating on races is wrong, but so is affirmative action. To have racial quotas is racism in itself. For companies and schools to only be allowed to accept a certain amount of each race causes people to look at the race and not the skills.

    To be racist is just superficial- ME.

    Racism is natural... But we should all know better than to act natural. Afterall, we dont go around killing people, and we live in somewhat of a civilisation.

    We will never fix things, never reach the next level unless we "unite humanity" in the goal of social, legal and life justice for all humans, and common goals/dreams for our future.

    I totally agree with what you are saying. In the real world like you said unless we "Unite humanity". The only way to even come close to that is to live under a dictatorship and all follow a socialist belief system. We would all have to believe in one religion that also unites us. Its that utopian type of mentality.
    We may not agree on everything but I bet we could find some common ground.

    Until that happens we will all stay retarded nations with ignorant and foolish populations, fighting other retarded nations with ignorant and foolish populations, for no reason.

    I'm only interested in reaching the next level with me and mine. Rest of the species can rot and die as far as I care.

    Oh, the only way to unite striving towards a shared objective is to live under a socialist dictatorship? lol

    I do feel like it should not be called "Racism" just because you don't happen to like a particular Person of Color. No fair to hide behind the race card.
