What's wrong with being racist?

Racism is very rational and natural. Racism should be encouraged in society. It's forced integration and multiculturalism that's unnatural and irrational.

    Ethnic nationalism is not racism, that's the thing. Japan wanting to stay Japanese is not racist and does not mean in any way that they hate other people. It's logical nationalism and very nearly their divine right. I wouldn't want to interfere with it and make them turn white or become minorities in their own country, because that just stinks.

    The definition of racism has extended to mean anything, including "failure to hate whiteness as extensively as mainstream media/public education say we should."

      Ethnic nationalism is racism under another name. There's nothing wrong with it.

    Same reason why it’s wrong to hate. And you can be any color, from any party, to be a hater. I know haters can’t comprehend this, but many people don’t hate at all. I would only hate someone that was causing physical harm to people or animals.

    Racism is based on a complete myth, that humans can be divided into separate races with identifiable characteristics, and that a person's behaviour and character are determined by their 'race'.

    Apparently the Democrats have to approve of racism before they will turn a blind eye to it.

    It's called denial, or pretending. Subterfuge.

    If you're too stupid to understand why racism is bad then there is already no hope for you.

    Racism has had no real positive effects in history, dear. Take it from a historian.

    We probably are hardwired for it to some extent, since it would have offered our ancient ancestors some survival advantages. In our early history, we needed to be suspicious of and even hostile towards the Other -- the person who didn't look like us and didn't share our customs and beliefs -- because life was tough then, and chances were that he didn't want to be friends; he just wanted what we had.

    But we're not Stone Age people, or even living in the Bronze or Iron Age. We have presumably progressed a great deal, and as I said, in mankind's recent history, racism hasn't had any positive effects on culture and civilization. It is no longer "rational" to be racist.

    Multicultural civilizations, by the way, are always richer, deeper, and more sophisticated than others. Cultural homogeneity is narrow, restricted, and impoverished.

      Indeed it is, dear. That is precisely what people intend when they use the word. A cosmopolitan person is a citizen of the world, interested in and comfortable with all its aspects. You haven't traveled much, that's clear.

    well, you DO have your facts right, but civilization has, throughout history, made efforts to refine the human preserving qualities of the species and to attenuate or eliminate the human extinctive qualities. right now, racism is an extinctive quality because food is plentiful and technology and health are rising. in a more bereft world, racism (and tribalism generally) will be important to the continuance of the species.

    As those who are racists but refuse to admit to being racists. As Trump if he is a racist, and he will say no, even though he is. Being racist is bad because it means a person is not reasonable because he or she will not accept facts that a person can be good or bad regardless of skin color. They believe that all people of the same race are bad for example. Worse, many racists will hurt, enslave or even kill people that are a different race solely because of their race, not because of anything they may have done. Hitler for example, killed millions of Jews simply because they were Jews, not because they did anything wrong.

    Racism causes riots and wars. There is nothing natural or rational about them.

    It also shows how ignorant you are. Intelligent people judge INDIVIDUALS, not groups of people.

    You don't want to be stupid, do you?
