According to the anti-racist whacks, I’m a racist.
I readily agree to being three types of racist:
A “liberal racist”: This is some BS term that the Abagond types ferret about. I’m not even really sure what it means! I think it means the typical attitudes of US White and even White liberal society that in White society don’t even count as racist because they are so wimpy.
One thing is feeling sorry for say Blacks. “These poor Blacks! We need to help them! Come on, let’s do it!” According to a lot of crazy Blacks, that’s liberal racism because we are pitying Blacks and implying they can’t make it without our help.
White man’s burden racism: Sort of similar. Implies that White civilization is superior to much of Third World civilization. Also implies we need to help them get more civilized since they are unlikely to do so on their own. Note parallels with liberal racism above.
Scientific racism: Well, any time you discuss any kind of science having to do with racial differences, guess what? That’s scientific racism! I do that all the time on here, so I’m a scientific racist!
Yeah, I plead guilty to all 3 of those, but to me, that stuff isn’t even racism unless you’re a POC or an insane PC White.
And yeah, I’m proud to be racist in all those fake ways above, but I’m not proud if I feel truly racist in terms of animosity, etc.
I’m familiar with that feeling, as I’ve experienced it before, and it disturbs me.
One of the worst things about that type of thinking is that I noticed that I was starting to think of some of the other groups as less than human. I’d flash on a case of where someone in the other group had an all-too-human perception, feeling or attitude, exactly such as I might have. Then it flashed on me. Whoa! They’re human, just like me! I had started to dehumanize them, but the dehumanization of racism is so sneaky that it creeps up on you and you don’t even realize it until you are inside of it.
That’s happened with Jews and Blacks, that I can think of, and it really freaked me out, because I realized I was starting to dehumanize those people. It was so upsetting to me that I tried hard to get outside of that feeling and realize their humanity.
That’s probably one of the worst things about real racism. It’s almost inevitable that you’re going to start to dehumanize the other group at some point, and it seems like there is something horribly immoral about dehumanizing other human beings on account of who their parents were. It’s just so wrong.
