We’ve Unfairly Redefined The Term Racism

Don’t feel bad is someone calls you a racist. They probably don’t know what they’re talking about. I don’t now very many people that feel skin color or national origin means much of anything.

Hate goes with racism. Most of us hate something. I hate ignorance, poverty, blight and crime. I hate any culture that embraces those things. I call that kind of culture, the Culture Of Doom. That does not make me a racist in any respect. Unfortunately in America there are two minority groups with way too many members immersed in the doom culture, Blacks and Hispanics.

The danger is that too often we tend to assume every Black or Hispanic we see is a part of that distasteful, Culture Of Doom. Since the beginning of the human race we properly associated behavior, dress and speech with culture. Hating the Culture Of Doom does not make anyone racist or comedian, Bill Cosby would have been branded that long ago.

Members of the Culture Of Doom need to mend their ways and quit whining about racism.

Here’s the current definition of Racism:
rac·ism (rā'sĭz'əm) noun
1. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
2. Discrimination or prejudice based on race.

You really nailed this topic on the head. I have been accused, several times of locking some1 up because they are (fill in the blank). I always tried to explain that their color/nationality had nothing to do with it, simply the fact that they commited/or were accused of commiting a crime. Furthermore, 99% of the time the victim/complainant was of the same race/nationality.
