    Hahahaha ... let's start with the "stop racism" thing first, though that's not the subject of discussion ...

    No one is born a racist, I think we can be sure of that, go ask a baby if you want ... it is all about education, or more precisely, how a child is brought up and whom (and what) he/she comes into contact with, i.e. the environment ...

    An example would be my own dear mother ... she was born around the WW2 era, and had personally suffered the Japanese suppression, so for many years, she despised anything that's got Japanese written on it, including the culture, the appliances, the people and even the food ... however things changed when she came in contact with a Japanese lady who was married to my father's best friend (he himself is a Chinese), simply that they became friends, and then she realised not all Japanese is evil ... for many years, she stayed in touch with this Japanese lady until the family went to Japan and then they lost contact ...

    In addition, I can safely guess that most of her siblings had the same "grudge" against Japanese, but over the years, they have learnt to grow out of it (one of my uncles worked for JAL for many years) ...

    So, though only a small population (or acamecially, test subjects, hahaha), I think it is safe to say that "racist" (or as John said, ignorant people) can learn and change, given the opportunity ... so, Fillipus, or Mathew, whatever your name is, go out and let people know you if you feel that you are being discriminated in any ways ...

    Having said all that, I think the keywords here are "pretend" and "admit" ... hahaha, I just love those words, dont you? ... Fillipus, or Mathew, "pretend" is a mean of "survival" (among many other things), we all do that one time or another in order to keep a job or friends etc ... you must have seen a lot of people smiling to their boss(es) and/or colleagues though they hated their guts, or "pretend" to like a person for whatever reason(s) ... simply speaking, if you are not "in", then you are "out", and "pretend" will keep you "in" ... my conclusion, not quite the same as John's though, I believe you can change (correct) a racist or ignorant people, but you cannot change the "pretenders" as long as the person has a need to pretend ...

    The Art of Defending Racism!

    Doing something racist is easy- you don’t even have to think about it. But keeping racism alive? That takes work! Luckily for you, racism is deeply entrenched in our society, so all you need to do is hold the gates against those who would try to dislodge it, and let them wear themselves out. You'll want to use the tactics listed below to protect your own racist behavior, as well as those of others- after all- racism works because we work together!

    Winning the war against equality!

    No matter what, your objective is to be able to maintain these three beliefs at the end of any exchange:

    1) I’m not racist.
    2) I didn’t do anything wrong.
    3) I don’t have to change at all.

    If you can hold on to that, then you win!

    How it works

    Like a drinking problem or drug habit, racism works best when no one is willing to talk about it, and even better, when everyone works together to cover up the problem. The most important thing is to make sure that you can hide your problem from yourself- it’s key in maintaining those 3 beliefs that will keep you racist for a lifetime!

    Saying or doing something racist will come naturally to you- but defending it? You’ll want to use one of the following tactics. They’re listed from the more soft handed and defensive tactics to the most aggressive, giving you a full range of options! Don’t worry, whether you’re liberal, conservative, in the closet racist, or tatooed and ready for Rahowa, there’s something here for you!

    Tactical options:

    A. It’s not that serious

    1. We didn’t know better (and we never will)
    2. You’re too sensitive
    3. It’s not a big deal because it’s just (a movie, a song, a book, words, etc.)
    4. Why should we care? (You don't matter anyway)

    B. But!

    1. POC do XYZ to themselves (so it’s ok that we also do XYZ)
    2. I’m oppressed too!
    3. Hey! Look at sexism/classicism/Global Warming! Diversion
    4. One POC says it’s cool
    5. POC can discriminate too!
    6. What about reverse racism?
    7. We’re not discriminating AS MUCH (as other people/as we used to), isn’t that good?!? Give me a cookie.
    8. My best friend/spouse/adopted child/my ancestor 5 generations back is POC
    9. I’ve done XYZ, which proves I’m not racist, and I get a free pass for anything else I do.

    C. Dismissal!

    1. You’re too stupid to be in this conversation and everything you say doesn’t matter
    2. Racism is over now
    3. If we don’t talk about it, it’ll magically go away
    4. Under my definition- it’s not racist
    5. You’re too angry/You’re being irrational
    6. Racism has always existed, we can’t fix it, you should stop complaining.

    D. Threats

    1. Be glad it isn’t worse, we could be doing XYZ/I’ll give you a reason to cry
    2. You brought this on yourself/ If you people didn’t... XYZ
    3. Go back to where you came from!

    Advanced Tactics!

    The Russian Retreat (Be like Water)

    Naturally, anyone who attempts to call you on a racist behavior, will probably try to also refute your defense. Fortunately for you, when your defense isn’t based on actual reasons, but simply irrationality, you can switch tactics on the drop of a dime without any explaination. Simply switch from one defense to another, randomly, and let your opponent continue to wear themselves out trying to penetrate your happy wall of racist belief!

    For additional fun, you can switch to a tactic you’ve used previously. Half of them will not even notice they’ve been led in a circle, the other half will lose all hope and give up! Hurrah for ignorance!

    (to be continued...)
  • Erik Aleksander Aas

    The Wall of Whiteness

    As the Greeks knew, the key to a good defense was teamwork. If you have more than one person supporting racism involved in the conversation, then all of you should use different tactics simultaneously- your opponent will have to fight on multiple fronts, and have to keep switching his or her train of thought to meet each defense. They’ll wear out in no time, and, you can reinforce and protect each other’s 3 beliefs.

    Judas is your friend (when you’re Roman)

    You may be fortunate enough to have rallied POC allies in racism. Their 3 beliefs replace “I” with “My white friends”, and they’re just as willing to defend you as another white person. These allies are pure gold. They lend credibility to your defense that you’re not racist, and what you’ve done isn’t racist. Instead of simply wearing out your opponents, these allies will completely demoralize them and wound them to the heart, opening them easily for the kill.

    The Theory of it all

    The best part of irrational behavior, is that you don't need to understand a lick of it. But some of you may wish to further your studies on the path of racism, so it's best to be armed with the theory behind the tactics.

    Denial of responsibility:

    This form of denial involves avoiding personal responsibility by blaming, minimizing or justifying. Blaming is a direct statement shifting culpability and may overlap with denial of fact. Minimizing is an attempt to make the effects or results of an action appear to be less harmful than they may actually be. Justifying is when someone takes a choice and attempts to make that choice look okay due to their perception of what is "right" in a situation. Someone using denial of responsibility is usually attempting to avoid potential harm or pain by shifting attention away from themselves.

    Denial of impact:

    Denial of impact involves a person avoiding thinking about or understanding the harms their behavior have caused to themselves or others. By doing this, that person is able to avoid feeling a sense of guilt and it can prevent that person from developing remorse or empathy for others. Denial of impact reduces or eliminates a sense of pain or harm from poor decisions.

    Denial of awareness:

    This type of denial is best discussed by looking at the concept of state dependent learning. People using this type of denial will avoid pain and harm by stating they were in a different state of awareness (such as alcohol or drug intoxication or on occasion mental health related). This type of denial often overlaps with denial of responsibility.

    Denial of cycle:

    Many who use this type of denial will say things such as, "it just happened." Denial of cycle is where a person avoids looking at their decisions leading up to an event or does not consider their pattern of decision making and how harmful behavior is repeated. The pain and harm being avoided by this type of denial is more of the effort needed to change the focus from a singular event to looking at preceding events. It can also serve as a way to blame or justify behavior (see above).

    Denial of denial:

    This can be a difficult concept for many people to identify in themselves, but is a major barrier to changing hurtful behaviors. Denial of denial involves thoughts, actions and behaviors which bolster confidence that nothing needs to be changed in ones personal behavior. This form of denial typically overlaps with all of the other forms of denial, but involves more self-delusion.

    Remember, ignorance doesn't just maintain itself! Only with your hard work and diligent efforts can we keep hate alive!!!!!!

    Oh snap, correcting Thorstan and Pete (slightly) on this one. There is racism in the Scandinavian countries. It is directed again the Saami (the indigenous reindeer herders that live in the Arctic). However, I will state that it is much less blatant than the racism in a lot of other countries, and it stems around the issue of land and wanting to develop past the Lappland Border.

    Shooting baguettes smeared with roquefort, or just regular bullets?

    But in all seriousness, with time comes increased understanding.

    Citizens of liberal, developed countries have been born and raised in environments that stress the importance and necessity of diversity, having been exposed to countless workshops, lectures and discussions, educational programs, public service announcements and a litany of other programs that have (or at least tried to) cement the positive value of multiculturalism in its citizenry since birth.

    For the most part, it works.

    But you can't expect folks who have been raised in a homogeneous system under different value systems to have the exact same viewpoint.

  • Joakim Berg Solum
    Pete, I get what you're saying but if isolation is the problem, why is the racism generally directed towards dark skinned people while white people are almost glorified? It's just because the West is rich and Africa is poor. Everything in China is about money.

    Racism is human nature. Stereotyping is also human nature, gives us a quick and easy way to assess something without having to dig deeper into details. Sometimes the stereotype is completely wrong, but if it were wrong more times than right, a different stereotype would take its place. Even when you take people from all different backgrounds and drop them in the same country and put them on an equal economic and educational ground, they'll still find ways to separate into little groups and find reasons to hate other groups.

    I think a lot of animosity towards dark-skinned people comes from both stereotypes perpetuated by the media and "real life" behavior that confirms these stereotypes -- not necessarily poverty.

    Agree with your other points.

    I wouldn't worry about that becoming a trend; seems like an isolated incident.

    I'm still waiting for Abisai (and the other black gentlemen who commented earlier) to chime in with their viewpoints.

    I actually love women of all races, however I tend to stay away from the males unless I build a bond with them and start a real friendship. Is that racist behavior or is it simply sexist behavior? Or is it just plain smart evolutionary behavior? I am generally accepting and respectful of peoples personal space, race, and customs. I am generally wary of their actions, demeanor, and attitude toward me. If they are racist toward me, or I sense that they are trying to get over on me then I will be relentless in my defense. I empathize with people for what my ancestors have done and what the colonizer continues to do, but if people cannot understand me that I am here as an equal and not someone who believes himself to be better than someone of another color then they are the ones hurting themselves. Be wary, but but do not act too hastily.

    ok, once again i see people having fun here
    but i will break it down for you guys

    lets get a simple definition of Racism

    Racism is an ideology to classify groups of natural persons, often referred to as races, from natural attributes, visible or not.

    This ideology can lead to an attitude of systematic hostility against any class of persons. These hostile acts result in discrimination, a form of xenophobia or ethnocentrism.

    From here i will break it down by saying that nobody had to choose with wich color he wanted to be born. Here we all can realize that is the matter of God. We are here in front of a subject who is much older than everybody who are putting comments in this post. trying to show people how much you can use verbs and sentences to avoid it its waisting of time or simply malice.

    Take time to imagine one second if you were born with a skin color that you would not evolve into a comfortable position in society with the ideologies and rules of games have been set by those of another skin color!

    I am not saying Mr Abisai is right, coz he didnt really explain is problem, but to say that, racism is not the problem that not true.

    and please stop talking about poverty in Africa as a fact, is the result of one of the oldest forms of racism 'slavery'. From their blood, their wealth and their lives Africans have provided the Development of most of the Western countries to the detriment of Africa itself.

    So if you think that deep inside of your consciousness you are not racist, then let's have some real talk!

    God Bless
