A few things to bear in mind about race

1. Racial differences are in fact cultural.

2. Cultural similarities can be attributed to geography, religion and government.

3. Birds of a feather flock together.

4. While a person's race can be a predictor of behaviour, it is not sufficient to simply rely on that if you are looking for a spouse or an employee.

5. Those of the same race can be very unpleasant to each other.

6. White people can be horrid to each other.

7. White Christian people have been infamously horrid to each other eg burning each other at the stake over the beliefs they held over their common religion of Christianity.

8. While that is so, you cannot say no good came of it for white people, because it was religiously persecuted white people who founded America and America is now top dog nation of the world and the source of Western hegemony after Europe destroyed itself in two World Wars over Belgium and Poland respectively.

9. For some reason nobody minds if people of the same race are horrid to each other and just shrug their shoulders at atrocities committed by members of the same race eg burning each other at the stake over their personal beliefs about the nature of the Trinity or whether their monarch should obey the Pope, but get on their high horse if one race commits atrocities on another.

10. I am not that bothered about racism living in the West as a non-white person because I know mono-racial societies can have revolutions during which everyone is busily being horrid to each other and you may find yourself persecuted by people of the same party and church or even your own family and former friends. It has been said that the people most likely to murder you in peacetime are your parents, children or your spouse who have something to gain from your death, especially if they are beneficiaries of your will ie people of your own race.

11. Racism is therefore lazy thinking and the wish to rely on lazy theories that make you think you can tell if someone is going to be nice or nasty to you but which will prove to be disastrously inaccurate. My contact with racists has revealed that they are just people who wish to hang on their lazy theories of the eternal racial superiority of white people and the eternal racial inferiority of other races, as well as the eternal racial superiority of Jewish people whom they hate and fear for being racially superior to them because of their religion.
