Racism

Leave a comment

Posts about racism can easily turn into essays for me, so, shortly, let me say, racism is a lot like life, not entirely relative, not entirely known. If I say, “I like Mexican food.”, that’s a racist comment. Most people don’t have a problem with that comment, so they don’t consider it racism, because they don’t understand exactly what racism is. Racism is basically making judgements good or bad about races of people. So, should we all not talk about different foods we like because it’s racist? Saying “I like Mexican food.” does promote division believe it or not. But the subject, food, is a benign subject, so we let it go. Ethics works like this. The closer you get to necessity, the stronger the focus becomes on erradicating the division. If I were to say, “Mexican food is terrible.”, that judgement of inferiority takes on more power than just a passing “I like Mexican food.” Why? Both statements are about food. I believe, in general, people want to get along. So, acknowledging division in praise of something, while still perpetuating racial division, is not even noticed as racism though it is, but, making judgements of inferiority along racial lines is frowned upon, and called “racism” even though it’s only half what racism is. Let me cut it off there…..lol1chalkboard_memeRacism
