Racism

Reader comment on item: Anti-Muslim Racism?

Submitted by Jay Martin Bennett (United States), Nov 23, 2005 at 02:11

All men are lethal weapons. All men will become a lethal weapon given the circumstances to be lethal. All men find excuses to be lethal weapons. "Racism" is an excuse for men to become lethal.There is no such thing as racism. There are only human beings all with personal agonies translated into anger at the next human being for no reason at all but an inborn inheritance to hate. Hate anything and everything. Racism, if at all, is an emotional rationale not intellectual reason, to rid each other of each other. Religion, culture, education are but a few of the creations of mankind as rationale for coming to blows with fellow-human beings.
The metamorphosis of the word racism from racism per se to racism as label for other meanings that in the end can only be translated as one human being spitting on the face of another, that could be freedom of speech, too. An offense, vituperation, nevertheless, but legally acceptable. By one, maybe not another. Thus, escalation of misunderstanding, and a call to repair to the battlefield to do warfare.

Eons of historical warfare testifies to a hidden darkness in man to do in another, for any reason.

We're still at it today.
