Antyracism or just a fashion simbol?
It has come to my attention that assumed racism is everywhere. Today it is enough to simply look at someone who is not the same as you and you will be accused of racism. But how much do we really know about racism, stereotypes, ethnic and religious intolerance. Am I able to insult someone without being accused of racism? If I give someone a job who is of a same race as I am disregarding the person of a different race ,,, will I immediately be accused of racism? Out here in Cro we're pretty much all the same race, but different ethnicities. So am I really able to be a racist without ever doing something against anyone’s race? If I hit a man I am violent, but if I hit a man of a different race I'm immediately a racist? I don't think today there is much racism left, there is only those who go to extreme lengths in proving their tolerance and thus becoming and creating intolerance. Is it possible today to do anything without politics involved? Let's face it, in the following 10 posts there will be at least 3 suggesting that I'm a racist. How pathetic I am to even raise this discussion, and how we all have to „look forward“. But will that really be a fight against racism? Is there today such a thing as freedom of speech, or does it exist only when it is approved politically? I'm looking toward to all the insultful messages from all of you, and please don't hold back, I hope that at least in this thread we'll all be able to express our self’s. In order to prove my anty racism I could name now some of the different races which I like, but wouldn't that be just using the good name of those races in order to clear my name. Think about it, how much of a racist are we all truly, and how much are we just led to believe that we are. More and more people now are simply using anty racism to increase the public image of them self’s, deliberately picking fights with so called “racists” in order to demonstrate their moral superiority, but are the racists really that obvious, do we really recognize them, are they really racists? And there is also ethnic intolerance. When you say „those damn Croatians“ or some other name, are you truly being ethnically intolerant, in some eyes even a racist. Or are you simply suggesting that most Cro's do this or that. Some dude once said something like he didn't know there are actually races, but people call him white. Didn't he just shield himself from the truth that not everyone looks, thinks or feels the same as he does, rather to ignore the fact in favor to racial tolerance? Rather to accept the fact that we're not all the same, we are not all the same race, the same height, the same weight, and from then on to adjust himself to that situation, and not only himself, to adjust others to his cause ,,, something noble, but it might be considered racism. How much today do we really think, and how much are we told to think, how much d owe resist it.
Thank you for reading this absolutely meaningless thread.

Racism takes many shapes and forms, but it's a universal expression for having prejudice against people based on something they are born with and cannot change.

If I hate you for being a racist piece of shit, I am not being racist because I hate you based on something you've chosen to become out of free will.
Thus racist is just a melting pot term for xenophobe, homophobe all sorts of shit.. fuck you are a racist if you discriminate against someone because of their height.
I have to say that I really like that post, it seems you put a lot of thought in it. I don't agree with some parts, but I am happy that you read my messages, as I read yours, and that you're taking some of your time to devote to me. Thank you. Now allow me to return the favor.

I'm sorry if this might seem arrogant but I think I know English better than you, because you make a lot of grammar mistakes, and I only error in spelling. Spelling can be learned, but grammar must be understood. You constantly call me names, which makes me believe you are a young person, well that would be a stereotype. But if you hate me for not being able to learn English properly, you couldn't be called a racist, you simply hate me, you donít hate my race, you don't hate my origin, just me. I assure you I'm not mentally handicapped, just sometimes rude, and the fact I donít' agree with you doesn't mean I'm bellow you, it means I have rethink all the possibilities and decided against you. Can you accept the fact that someone doesn't agree with you? I'm asking because you present yourself as someone very tolerant. I know I can't have a real conversation here, but I'll still try.
Thank you for living up to my expectations, I am also very disappointed.
Looking forward to your next message.
Exactly, but you can't explain it to people

It appears to me that you had made numerous mistakes about the notion of race. The race is above everything an administrativ identification method. The assumptions of qualities are related to local folklores or cliches that are not followed by the real scientific community. Biologically speaking, they are a very few consequency that are mainly linked to the geographical origin of a so called race and their environment. For instance, jewish people and people from the mediterranean sea are more likely to be affected by thalassemia and black people by drepanocytosis. It is not a racial consequency, but an environmental consequency.
Talking about urban subculture, I believe there is no relationship between behaviour and "race", provided Mankind owns free will. Since some people have decided to associate with their ethnical group, feel free to understand that those young people only represent themselves. Besides, unless you believe that empirism is the ultimate scientifical method, your assumptions will lead you to a dead end full of loony characters. Because the link you would stress would already exist in your head; this pre disposal is a fertile ground to racist ideology.
People always have the choice to be. This very freedom defines by itself the inept concept of racism, as you always have the possibility to transcend your identity and your beliefs. Chaos lies upon you and displays its inner incompatibility with the racial concept.
And remember : the need of the many overweights the needs of the few.
