Once you start Identifying as one thing...you're saying me.. I'm in this group..not yours,...I'm Black your White,we're different.BlackDiamond wrote: ↑Wed Nov 11, 2020 1:06 pmThe problem is applying the colour thing in the first place. In African countries they don't describe themselves as "Black" because they are not. Their overall skin complexion is mid-brown, brown. In the same way white people are not actually white. They are categorized as pale skinned and this generally describes people of a European origin or used to.mkhammer wrote: ↑Wed Nov 11, 2020 12:10 pm Why can you say "A Person of Colour"..thats fine and dandy PC correct and all that shit...but you say "A person has Colour"
as in he/she is a Coloured Footballer/Shopkeeper..etc.. whatever ...you're some kinda Extreme Nazi loving Black Hating thug....
According to a small minority anyway....
It's descriptive thats all...as in he/she has blue eyes...Blond/Dark hair...fat/thin...tall/short...not racist whatsoever..
Colour has almost become a swearword......................some people like keeping things Black and White I spose..
Makes it all simple..
Bring it up..cos was watching something on TV... 2 women discussing the topic....One was "Black", one was a Latino
who are classified as white...cos we cant use any colour description.....The "Black" women had a lighter Skin tone than
the White Latino...
It's fuckin crazy.....
Mixing language and anthropology we get the terms Caucasian,African,Hispanic,Asian,Chinese and all the other dolly mixtures and all their hybrid sub sets. Absolutely nothing wrong in that.
Then when you add a layer of socio political doctrine to the smorgasbord of pseudo science, you get something like the BLM movement as a construct.
And when you try and organise these things along racial divisions that always ends bad. Any reading of history supplies that conclusion.
Straight away any Equality is out the window,cos you have separation,then rivalry,then competition,my group is better
than your's,so you don't share or help the other group.
Doing that on skin colour alone is F.in Crazy...don't agree with it..but least can understand the Cultural and even Religious
side of Racism.
Which exists far more in society the the colour thing.
The States situation, ours to extent..is not so much a colour thing (not saying colour hatred doesn't exist be stupid ,it does,
seen it) but as a society thing,the poor live in "Ghettos"...they steal/rob take and sale drugs/prostitution etc..keep them in that
area and away from us and our area,most of the poorer people live in the inner cities,which are mainly black now.
Years ago the East End was all white as was Parts of New York..they were looked on in the same way...keep them in their
place away from us.
Being Black makes you identifiable thats all.....Biggest racism in world is prob in India with the Caste system,truly wicked,
and they're all the same colour...Same Religion and Culture..
