If this wasn't true, could you make it up?

Weapons, weapons and more weapons to solve our problems!

On the other hand to solve the problems of those tyrants who are placed where they are to try to make any upheavals impossible and a warning to foes.

A long run since the silex hatchets, don't you think so?

AND, Tacit racism latent throughout -- "Stinkin' turban twirlers! Whatcha gon' do, Boss?"

Can you name one segment of the human race throughout history which hasn't been 'racist' in the sense of NOT believing that their home country/ tribe/religion/ culture/habits were superior to those of their neighbours?
I've been racking my brains, and can't think of one. Humans are racist by nature. Why has the term become such a boo-word?

Jose said...

Racism is a strange word. If we consider human beings as gregarious individuals, what would happen if, Robinson Crusoe-like, four persons of different races had to live together for an extended period of time. Would the stronger master the weaker, or the cleverer the meekier?

Will that be racism or simply the Law-of-the-stronger?

If we get a full gang of Ku-Klux-Klan in an African village, should we call the locals racist or should we simply consider that in the light of the local customs and practices?

We human beings tend to give names that are meant to differentiate others from us by belittling them, when in actual reality we are all equal.

It is one of those silly Saturdays for me, so I do apologise.

Equal in humanity, Jose, but not in every other respect. To maintain that some people are not merely different, but are not superior or inferior to others in many ways, makes nonsense of all value-judgements.

The reason I raised this is that 'racist' has become the fashionable boo-word of the Politically Correct chattering classes in Britain. It is slapped onto anyone who criticises the mindless multiculturalism that has done so much damage in recent years, and which is now fast losing all credibility.

Yes, we should celebrate difference and diversity - but we should also recognise the value of our own cultural inheritance.

When you fight against the BNP during a local election, the word "racist" is not a "fashionable boo word of the politically-correct chattering classs".

anticant said...

May be not, Richard, but your observation does not invalidate my comment.

Richard W. Symonds said...

There is no wish - or desire - to "invalidate" your comment, AC...

Just a personal "observation" regarding it.

WHEN I said 'racism' /supra/ my actual invective purpose was to adduce to the bushites the element of condescension so clearly obvious in the giving away to these "Ay-rabes" & mahometan coons, of a mere pittance of 60 billions in weapons. That sum /is/ derisory by to-day's highly-relativistic post-modern 'standards' (although obviously /not/ to the little baby or child to be killed sooner-or-later by them -- the weapons I mean and not the 'standards' -- although rather obviously the child /is/ being done-in equally by /our/ lack of any standard in policy except some crude fandango of 'power'!)

SIXTY Billions to these "towelheads" /is/ strictly tokenism; and, it is therefore on all-fours with negro "affirmative action" programmes in the states; and, thus, were these Arabs men of any sort, why, they should have sent these un-islamic honkies scattering for the palace rat-holes, there to be winkled out consequently by the royal childrens' ferrets!

SERIOUSLY, As to the 'racialism' flummery, 'tis indeed a rampant bad mis-equation, of culture and things like cranial indices!
