I'm never surprised by how rule domineering and intolerant the tolerance brigade really are.
'we've decided you're a racist, because we are very tolerant of your opinions & point of view; as you know we value individual thought and free speech. For this reason, and for the sake of preservation for our dear state, we must banish your responses to the naughty bin, and you are to be regarded as a 'racist' until you own up to your crime and present yourself for a nice dose of commissar reconditioning '.
Oh, no no. You are free to be a racist. (I’m honestly not sure how you could dispute that you are, since your posts seem to be the definition of racism – i.e. “The caucasian succeeded like no other race”)
Like all racism, you are also wrong. Your simplistic attribution of the (relatively recent) success of certain western powers to them being “White Caucasions” not only ignores the many real
factors that led to the (again, recent) rise of the West, it also overlooks the legacies of the many non-Western world powers that have paved the way for European advancement. But that is what racists, fascists, and bigots of all types do.
In Asia, at the height of Japanese imperial power, a Japanese racist might have made similar claims as to why Japan succeeded in dominating the Pacific Realm. Arabian racists at the height of the Arab empire might have written about “the superiority of the Arabs over the non-Arabs.” In the American South, racist slave owners would attribute their ability to subjugate their African slaves to racial superiority (and not kidnapping, dispersal of families and cultural ties, the denial of basic education, and extreme physical abuse.)
So, racism is all the same. There is always something special about your particular line of Homo sapiens sapiens that makes you unique and superior – something innate that sets you apart. It’s a delusion that overlooks or selectively interprets reality in order to make you feel better about yourself.
Again, don’t let me get in the way of your racism. Have at it. Just don’t derail threads.
