    Hate is self-destructive. If you hate somebody, you're not hurting the person you hate. You're hurting yourself. And that's a healing. Actually, it's a real healing, forgiveness.If you hate somebody, it's like a boomerang that misses its target and comes back and hits you in the head. The one who hates is the one who hurts.

    Well, if you coulnd't explain, it should tell you that your assumption about "self hatered" is wrong.
    Be wary of people who tend to glorify the past, underestimate the present, and demonize the future.

    I'm not racist. I'm a left-winged European with left-winged parents. There surely are racists where I live- though not always openly (except a certain political party) as it's incredibly not-done. There is some (sometimes too extreme) political correctness around here, so barely anyone would go say openly 'I hate ... and we're better than them' though, particularly with recent terrorism attacks in Western-Europe, you can 'feel' the racism coming from certain people (which doesn't make much sense- middle easterners are often the exact same race (Caucasian) as Europeans) Anyway, no, I'm not racist. I wouldn't date someone not-white quickly though, but that's simply because the offer isn't really big and I melt for bright, light green or blue eyes, something which isn't exactly common on not-white people. ('White' is broad here. The person I think at is southen russian)

    Intolerant people can concentrate their hatred not only on race but anything that makes the others different. It could be religion, place of birth, language, lifestyle etc. In all of us there is this primordial instinct of tribalism, which makes us be afraid and hate everything which is not related to our tribe. The racism towards everything different could be called tribalism. People lived for millions of years in small tribes, so tribalism is engraved in our genes. Now some of us can go beyond local tribalism and think of the whole world as our tribe, one tribe. If everybody belongs to our tribe, there is nobody left to hate and be afraid off. Well, this subject is more complex than that, but tribalism explains a lot.

    Racism is what makes an ethnicity together. People with similar cultural and physical traits form a community and protect their group from outsider influences. This can be seen in a negative way when A group discriminates and harass B group or positively when A group in order to protect their cultural heritage avoid the contact with B group.

    Racism also exist in a genetically homogeneous society where farm workers with darker skin may be seen inferior to higher classes. This example is common in East Asia. I'd argue to consider it as a part of a more greater system called "caste". Jatts may see inferior those from the bottom of the caste system and this can generate racism to look those people and use them as peasants in a family.

    Life is not black and white, everything has it's own sense for good reasons. We normally don't against other people for racial reasons, but we tend to pick partners and friends who share more with us in common and this covers genetic, social environment, intelligence and shared interest. If this wasn't the case then people would mate and seek the companionship with bulls and frogs instead with other people.

    I used to think that way but then I discovered the taste of P*psi and the kisses of latinas it changed my mind so much. I'm for multiculturalism but wait and think a minute. What will happen when every person will start mass movements to different places and mix with locals.. Should we call it as anti-multiculaturalism because it destroys local cultures and creates a mono culture which is all about consuming and the American lifestyle.

    If I was a drug lord I'd wish everyone on this planet think and act the same so I can have a larger influence on the market because similar minds will act similar ways. This system is all about it.

    He is indeed, another girl. Thankfully, he is no longer with us. I'm sorry that you had to encounter that kind of post during your first foray onto the site.

    It's virtue signaling to acknowledge that Seanp is a racist as well as an agenda driven *****? Since when? As far as I'm concerned those are statements of fact. Perhaps you should read some of his posts again.

    Then again, maybe fellow travelers of Seanp and Sikelliot and Principe are racist or Nordicist signalling? I'll have to be on the watch for that.

    I was referring to the whole thread and attitudes in general, but I fail to see how post #58 is worse than Hitler. You would certainly be more knowledgeable about trends and post histories though. I'm not going to defend racist statements, but if I see them I'll refute them with fact rather than public shaming tactics to force political correctness without room for discussion.

    It is very interesting to see differing opinions from around the world about this.

    I think there are three definitions for racism:

    one, is the belief that a "race" is "superior" to others. Two, is that that belief should lead to discriminatory laws. Three, a preference for some kind of phenotypic traits in social relationships.

    I think number two is clearly wrong. However, number three is perfect reasonable. But in our society, political correctness is leading towards saying that three is bad.

    For example, is it bad to prefer some kind of phenotypic trait when looking for a couple? Of course, it would be bad to say that some kind of mixed-phenotype-couples are forbidden by law. But extremist political-correctness is confusing both things, which are very different to each other.

    However, we constantly choose in our social interactions, with many different metrics (often, inadvertently of that).

    Even more, political correctness is leading towards suppressing natural behaviours, such as preferring your own kin, or having children. Political correctness is leading more and more to make believe to people that we should prefer others rather than our own kin (if we are white; otherwise not) and that it is cool not to have children. Note: I am talking from a European point of view.

    Thank you for obligate me to take a break to do a quick research. I did not know the term ethno-differentialism.
    I thought it was a neologism. But now I see that it is a concept that has relatively old roots in Europe, especially in France, where the concept seems to have been born and spread.
    Interesting worldview!
    I did not know that there was the concept of ethno-differentialism as opposed to the concept of racism.

    ethnopluralism is a dangerous ideology imo. first, why would you want that ethnicities stay seperated? second, how are you going to make sure they stay seperated? there are a lot of people, the majority who doesn't care about this stuff. these "ethnopluralists" try to get into politics with their identitarian movements, where they just do not belong, in the end it would just end in oppression. they can make their own week end clubs and sit around a table drinking beer and talk about their ideologies if they want.

    Agree with the danger. It’s hard to work together when we’re ‘told’ other groups are so different that we don’t share the same “truth.”
