definition from a web site:
exists practically in all countries, but in certain places and situations it is
especially common. Some of the very common reasons for racism to arise are fear
or the need for a "scapegoat". If things are going badly many people�s natural
reaction is to blame somebody else. This is exactly what often causes racism,
if the unemployment is rising or the national economy is very weak, many people
will look for a scapegoat to blame, and in most cases they will choose the people
that they do not know, such as those with a different ethnical or cultural background.
Politicians, especially rich and entrenched politicians, are also blamed. The
King or President of the nation may be blamed. Religious "fanatics"
may be blamed."
are often seeds of truth in this response. Politicians do stupid things and show
open greed. Presidents and Kings become arrogant and out of touch with issues.
groups tend to bunch up in certain suburbs and unwittingly form small nations
within nations. To this is added movements lead by godless "Reverends"
like Sharpton and Jesse Jackson who agitate for the "rights" of Blacks
at the expense of Whites, even demanding "reparations" be paid for perceived
offenses committed by offenders long dead. This is mindless rhetoric, and usually
it goes nowhere except to endear the "Reverends" to upper middle class
Blacks who contribute to the pocket books of the "Reverends".
obviously is threatening to a homogenous society where ethic peoples of many varieties
live at random with each other. This is the especially the case in the USA.
people who do not trust Mexicans or Middle Eastern people in the USA have never
visited those peoples' neighborhoods or made any effort to get to know them. Also,
most racist people will claim they have good friends who are Mexicans or Arabs
or Black, but these will be people who have moved away from the ethnic centers
to live in the homogenous neighborhoods.
the case of Black Americans, there is a collective self-consciousness by many
Whites who know full well that Black Americans did not choose America, yet they
want to be as much a part of America as Whites. But, many Whites have mindless
clichés and shallow minded solutions for the race dilemma. In the foyer
of almost any Independent Baptist church south of the Mason Dixon line you can
hear, "These Negroes should go back where they came from." More on this
said these things, it is important to note that racism in many parts of the USA
and the world is diminishing. The problem is, Jesse Jackson will never admit that,
and Hispanic agitators will never agree that life is a lot better in America for
Hispanics than it was fifty years ago. We live in Tennessee, and when Blacks and
Whites meet in the market place here there is almost no sign of racial feeling.
In the casual situations, people talk and laugh together freely, which was NOT
the case fifty years ago. Blacks have made real contributions, and agitation is
almost nonexistent. Thus, there is nothing to resent in each other.
there any race in real estate and politics? Probably, but there is discrimination
in many other ways, but it does not constitute an incipient trend. For example,
if one put his home up for sale, his neighbors might ask him to make sure not
to sell to rockers and "freaks". This is acceptable discrimination.
But, when neighbors ask one not to sell to Blacks, is this fair? No, of course
not. Blacks and "freaks" are not to be equated, but to say that an occasional
irrational response is a trend is insane.
will always be small minded people, but to make sweeping laws and spend billions
funding the eradication of racism, or to isolate the small minded, is insane.
There are a lot better ways to spend money, like on Black education. When you
fund the gigolos of the Black community, like Jesse Jackson, you may well be denying
some Black kid a Masters degree and forcing him to settle for a BA.
make one last observation-- Racism is often perceived and defined by those who
never experienced it. Black intellectuals who were born with a silver spoon in
their mouth, and went to Harvard, are joined by White Liberals from Massachusetts
who are looking for an issue that will push the buttons of the Liberal community
and keep the votes coming. It is all too common for these prevaricators to twist
reality in their quest for proofs of racism and prejudice.
the propaganda factor in race relations, the most common way to give the alleged
racist a quilt trip is to show people in poverty and blame one group of observers
for the poverty of another group. The poverty may well have been chosen by many
of the poor, or may be the result of cultural choices, or just plain sin and ungodly
behavior, but those being propagandized are told it is their fault. It is a well
hidden fact that many people in ghettos could leave but choose to stay there for
is also a fact that the observer blamed in the Liberal propaganda presentation
has never been anywhere near the perceived poverty situation and has no means
to directly influence it toward a solution. ... except to right a check to The
Very Reverend Bombast. Just "vote for me, and I will stop racism and take
all your guilt away." They also take your tax dollar in the process, and
it never solves the poverty problem-- NEVER!
see, dear reader, those in poverty must be kept there, and the Liberal doles out
just enough cash to keep them beholding to the hidden hand of Caesar and the Liberal
Congressman. It must also be noted that the Conservative side is in complicity
in keeping the ghetto funded because they don't want to relocate the poor Blacks
and Whites out into the suburbs where their constituents reside.
make no real contribution. Blacks and Whites in the real world, where they DO
live together, mock at them. In Muskegon, Michigan, if you mention the name of
Jesse Jackson to most Black men, they will turn and spit. But, racism is enhanced
as gullible Americans hear the edicts and blather breathed forth by these egg
head Blacks and Whites on the media, and they form impressions about race that
are 90% fiction.
people in middle class areas see these egg head "experts" as fools because
they can tell they have no concept of the real world. For example, Ted Kennedy
has never lived anywhere near the poor down trodden minorities he claims to understand.
He is a classic lush from Snobville. The result is that people (from red necks
to church deacons) start hating other people, as in "they", whom they
do not know but who seem to be a threat to them because the Liberal egg heads
are pushing a program to force compliance.
us now consider particular places where racism crops up:
