Fighting a Fire with Flamethrowers

You hear it again and again. "Because (this badly behaved person) did (this) therefore all people in (group) are (that)."   People get in an uproar when it's said about certain protected groups, and rightly so, but using the same logic in the opposite direction is just as destructive, and certainly does not give them…

A New Approach to Ending Racism and Bigotry is Needed

Racism and bigotry stem from ignorance and arrogance, sometimes combined with economic interests (i.e. competing social groups often don't like each other). As this election has shown, political correctness is not the answer. All it achieved was sweeping much of the racism and bigotry under the rug. This election moved the rug. The racism and…

Did America Just Suddenly Become More Racist and Hateful?

In the aftermath of Trump's election to the office of President, we have seen a rise in the number of acts of hate, some racist, some discriminatory against the LGBT community or Muslims, others against supporters of various candidates. Suddenly it seems as if we have more racists and haters everywhere, or at least their sympathizers.…

The Hate Needs to Stop from Both Sides

I want to publicly state that regardless of your political affiliation or preferred candidate, treating other people horribly is not right, and it's not good for this country, and it's counterproductive. Whether it's the hateful ones who discriminate against people based on the color of their skin, their culture, national origin, religion or sexual identity,…

You Can’t End Racism and Discrimination by Insulting People

You can't end racism and discrimination by hurling insults at people and dismissing them and silencing them as being racist, sexist or deplorable. You can only end racism and discrimination and create a kinder world if you actually talk to people who disagree, understand why they feel the way they do, and explain that there…

The Players in the Racism Game

To better understand the problem of racism, we need to understand the groups involved in the struggle and what motivates or triggers them. Some of these groups are intentionally causing problems, while others have good intentions but actually are contributing to the perpetuation of the problem. You will take some heat for being a true non-racist,…

Who Are the Racists: Conservatives or Liberals?

To call someone a racist is a serious charge. A racist is someone who believes that one person is superior (or inferior) to another person simply based on their skin color. It’s a belief that is both foolish and stupid. But conservatives are accused by progressives of being racist on an almost daily basis. Is…

Race is a B.S. Concept

Race is really a B.S. concept society has unfortunately bought into. It's not real and it's not useful. It's like someone said "Hey, let's group together this very diverse set of people based on shades of color, and ignore everything else about them that makes them different like culture, creed, social group, economic status, etc." It makes no sense if...
