I actually believe racism is inherent in ALL our DNA, fear/suspicion of difference is part of our natural defence mechanism, necessary for survival. It’s deep rooted in our instinct.

Years of education and moral code have trained us to ignore that perceived “threat” as (theoretically!) it is no longer relevant to our society and even to be ashamed by it.
We’ve all decided to live together in harmony right, so we need to buy into it.
Varying levels of education results in differing levels of success in suppressing that instinct.

I agree education is the answer, but only if that education is applied equally throughout the world and racism even (waaaaay!!!) more socially stigmatised than it is now.
We’re trying to educate out our own nature and that is going to take some serious effort!

Does anyone really think that if black folks were winning this sh!t-race, that white folks wouldn’t be looting, stabbing and shooting? Swap the colours round all you like.

While there are those who can and will take advantage of the situation it will not happen.
Human nature.

All our problems have one root I’m afraid - trying to deny or control nature - including our own.

Uncomfortable thought I know.

What happened with George Floyd, is first degree murder’ simple as that.
The ******* kneeling on his neck should go through a full murder trial, with a mixed race jury and bench. He has lots of history with warnings, mainly violence and abuse. Even the paramedics were disgusted with him and chums.

I was listening to LBC this afternoon’ and a black chap phoned in telling his story. He said when he was young he never experienced racism for years, until he started work, and boom he was quickly aware of it. Snide comments offered with a giggle, exclusion’ and gradually it was more obvious.
He became very good in his field, and is now late 40’s wealthy and leads a good life but’ the racism is still there probably worse than ever. He went onto say, that the uk is not equipped socially or mentally toward ethnic groups.
He suggested that blacks, asians etc, should live in countries with their own kind, even british born ethnics.
He was questioned why, and he said because this country offers great education and healthcare but’ the racism is as bad, if not worse than ever.
He said, in his opinion, racism will never go away, ever!

I said the same in a post a while back, and was accused of bigotry and racism, by Mal and his mate.
I would like to see racism gone because of the money it has cost me. I really can’t see it happen though, and especially in America, it is more blatant there now than ever.

It works both ways to’ a jamaican women is claiming corona virus was man made to eradicate blacks and other ethnic races.
One thing is for sure though, the copper that murdered floyd should pay the price, nobody deserves that, even over a suspected fake bank note.

Hi BB

You sound like Trump

Blaming racial oppression on Democrats. Seriously? Somewhere - way way far from what you are posting - is the real point to the matter.

I have no idea whether Chauvin voted Democrat or Republican because it simply doesn't matter. What matters is that yet another black man died wrongly at the hands of a white policeman.

I'm sorry if you feel insulted or abused. It's the political points scoring that is ******** - not you as an individual.

Let's be honest there's a bigger picture than your fragile ego tonight - real abuse, and generations of insult. I mentioned earlier that some of the Confederate statues were being taken down. Imagine that insult - to you and your ancestors and children. A great big memorial to those who wanted to preserve the white man's right to enslave the black man.

I do promote peace and love - still do. Look at the news and you'll see why it's necessary rather than trying to defend a man who promotes the opposite.

You'll have to excuse my passionate response but this matters

Mal

Hi Mal,

I came back on to point out to those that were interested, that there are other facts to this issue that are not being addressed on this thread.
My reference to Democrats, was simply to point out that most cities with a large population of blacks are controlled by them and have been for decades. As you know, States are run by State politicians, who are directly responsible for the welfare of their citizens, and control their own police forces etc.
I think it is reasonable to suggest that those Democrat politicians take the responsibility for the poverty and bad schooling of their black communities.
You have just confirmed why I have chosen to stay off these threads.
You and others can't discuss an issue without resorting to insults.
You go under the banner of peace and love, but you still have the capacity to mock and give abuse.

BB.

gotta have great conditioning with my hair...

In response to your edit - you might as well be saying 'some of my best mates are black / muslim / gay / whatever. It's purely anecdotal and not a reflection of the centuries of racial oppression that other cultures have endured and still do. I've posted before about my run in with the d-head white supremists at my local KFC - and I've challenged black kids at school for using the term 'pikey' and 'gippo'. None of those instances mean that racism isn't an institutionalised problem here and across the world - they just show that it IS a problem

You watch too much TV Mal. Human conditioning

Edit

For the record I have worked with a lot of ethnic groups and some of the biggest racists are these, probably down to years of persecution but none the less, the worst by FAR!

I worked with one bloke who was one of the key players in the Trojan horse story, schools in Bradford, Asian rule was it, they were interviewing him outside the workplace, soon went missing in action when he got his collar felt!

I'm not get getting pissy with you Mal I'm bailing out for tonight because I've had experience of making comments and portraying myself as something that I'm not

Edit
The fact that you think things are getting pissy is an example of how things don't always come across right on a forum

that's why i said 'disproportionately'

let's not us get pissy with each other - have a read of that article. It's not from a political leaning newspaper and it's got some real food for thought in it.


edit - BB did you really come out of your bunker just to spout ********? Democrats can be racist too? is that your point? well done. point made.

8 years of a black president didn't promote much change to the issue.

I liked the man, impeccable image. Other than shoot Bin Laden, if they really did, what has he done, nothing really like you say

You look at history and the world and all the big ones come and go, look at Rome, Chi (China) and all the rest. For me the US is in a predicament and has been for a while. Running a country for me is no different to a business there has to be some payback to make it work. I think America is on the verge of falling into a proper hole. Mind you though at least Trump is trying to create jobs, tax the world for imports (reducing American jobs) and encourage manufacturers in the USA

tried for their crimes

not selective at all

racism isn't rendered obsolete because some people of different ethnicity commit crimes.

and it's not a problem that is just because of lockdown.

Before your edit
A society that disproportionately imprisons black men
Maybe because they break the law more?

I'm bailing out of this thread for tonight because years of experience on forums has taught me that it's very easy for others to get the wrong opinions of others for example me.
