Racism, No matter who it comes from, it is WRONG!

Before we can talk about racism, we need to understand the definition. Most people do not understand the true definition of racism. Racism can be against any race and perpetrated by any race. If you go to the dictionaries the dictionaries has many different definitions but here are the top six. Some of the definitions show us how we are betraying humanity in today’s society. When I say we I mean all races.

1. A belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial difference produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.

2. Racial prejudice or discrimination.

3. A belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

4. Hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

5. A policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.

6. Discrimination or prejudice based on race.

At the turn of the century the white English was very much the epitome of a group of people who felt and acted superior to all others. Today in England though it still exists, it is far and few. Today many Black Muslim groups believe as the English did at the turn of the century, that their race and religion are superior to any other on earth. There’s no one group of people superior to any other group of people but this doesn’t stop them from thinking it and teaching it. The reality is it’s just a figment of their imagination to try and hide their fears of inadequacy.

Hatred and intolerance has many toxic vines. Racial groups who were once discriminated against are now allowing their people to fester into the exact entity they fought so hard to remove from society. You have white racist groups such as David Duke's KKK, black racist groups such as "Dr. Malik Zulu Shabazz’s New Black Panthers, Muslim racist groups (too many to mention), Spanish races groups like Aztlan, and Asian races groups as well. Any person or group of people no matter black and white or any other races who hates another person or group of people solely because the color of their skin or their ethnic background are no different then Hitler and slave traders.

The most shocking item to me today is that many of these are hate groups claim to have some religious background. It could be a radical mosque with a cleric who preaches
“Hate all other groups that are not Muslim”. It could be“Christian” groups, which are really just plain hating cults such as Rev. Wright’s or Thomas Kroenke church which claimed to be Christian but his teachings shows us otherwise. I do not care which group it is, they’re all scabs on our society. One of my favorite quotes “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.” This is what we in society should be striving to achieve, instead many of our racial groups teach and preach racism. If Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was alive today he would be very disheartened and disappointed by the moment he once started and what it has become. His ideal was for all to have the same chance at the same job for the same payee to be able to achieve the same stature in society. His ideal was not to become a nanny state for everybody to have handouts without lifting a hand to complete an honest day’s work but we learn from our leaders and masters at discrimination.

Our government is one of the biggest discriminators you will ever be able to find. Many times the discrimination our government shows is in relation to whom they think has been discriminated against in the past. If you go to the big cities you’ll notice that the youth have less respect as a whole compared to the youth in rule areas. We have forgotten to teach our kids morals and respect so now they think you only get respect with either money or a gun which leads them to either jail or the morgue. They have the same chances as the youths in rule areas but in many cases they are told and taught to live off of excuses and deceitfulness and now even the rule areas area catching up to this practice. Our inner city schools and parents need to start teaching their children respect for others, a proper work ethic, and the fact that you need to work for what you want to achieve in life. Our government is very liberal and they are to blame for our youth being this way today.

Our U.S. Congress is one of the biggest discriminators in the world. If you or I as common citizens didn’t pay our taxes we would be in jail yet almost a third of our Congress have been shown to be delinquent in their taxes. Many have received D.U.I.s, committed sexual assaults, taken bribes, and flat out lie to us their constituents to push their own agenda instead of what would be best for the country. In this country at one time we had a Congress that was noble, respectful, and had integrity; now all I can see in Congress is a bunch of criminals, bribers, liars, embezzlers, and basically just flat out unethical people. The integrity of our Congress is gone and we need to replace it and replace them with people of integrity. If you are were pulled over for a D.U.I. You can bet we would go to jail. If you read the U.S. constitution, you will see that any Congress person with a questionable reputation should not serve in Congress. I do not care if you’re a democrat, republican, independent, or a libertarian you should be removed from office when you failed to protect our country and uphold the U.S. constitution. The lack of this is where prejudices acquire its motivation.

Our judicial system is another place where you can see prejudice from our government. I believe the worst thing that has ever happened to our judicial system is plea bargaining cases to a lower criminal act because this allows justice to fail. One of the other judicial flaws is the difference in the sentencing of different groups compared to others. If you have a schoolteacher who is a female and a schoolteacher who is a male having sex with a student, the male teacher will get up to four times on average a longer sentence. If a woman murders a man and a man murders a woman, the man will get a third less time behind bars than the woman. No matter if you’re a woman or a man if you commit the same crime you should get same sentence. No matter if you’re black, white, Spanish, Asian, or any other race or gender, if you commit the same crime you should get the same sentence. Likewise if you are a habitual offender you should not be treated the same as someone who it is their first offense.

The one thing I want to say is many people have a misunderstanding about discrimination and race. It does not matter what race you are, all races can be discriminated against. Any time you set up a television show, a magazine, or a college fund which discriminates against any other race, you had just committed a bigoted act. This is only the case if any of the other races are not allowed to do likewise being called racist because they do. This is currently the case in the U.S. Media as well as the U.S. Congress. I am an independent, but I have watched our democrats in Congress call anybody who disagrees with Barack Obama a racist. These actions just go on to show our Congress who is to be above reproach is acting childish and idiotic. The party and its agenda, Democrat or Republican, mean more then what is right and honorable in congress today. Every members of our Congress who made that statement calling others racist should be removed immediately. Many of our leaders in Congress believe we as citizens are unable to make good choices so they must intervene in push their own agenda instead of the will of the people. This is known as totalitarianism.

If you have a group of people who believe they are superior or that they are owed items by society just for living, this is really just a ploy to cover up their own inadequacies and wrong choices. If you choose to drop the school, your situation is of your own creation and no one else is responsible except yourself. If you had made a bad choice, you can now choose to keep making bad choices by blaming everybody else but yourself for your situation, or you can choose to go back to school to get your GED to better your situation and then go to college if you desire. Everything is your choice and no matter what your situation is, it has always been your choice to be there or to be out of there. I grew up in one of the poorest areas in the nation. As a young kid I looked around and saw the choices I had in life. I could choose to stay in that improvised area or find a way out to better my standing in society, I chose the ladder. Many people make the wrong choice because it is home. For the same reason many people make the wrong choice about being racist. If you grew up in a family situation where your dad hates blacks, whites, or any other race, you have a choice to follow his path of ignorance or choose to judge people on their own merit. The choice is yours!
