Racism comes in many different forms. Sometimes it's subtle, and sometimes it's overt. Sometimes it's violent, and sometimes it's harmless, but it's definitely here. It's something that I think we're all guilty of, and we just have to make sure that we deal with our own personal racism in the right way. Jordan Peele
The assumption in society today, especially in societies where the black race and white races interact, is that racism is prevalent.
When people operate under this social construct, they are bound to assume that the manifestation of the issues of the heart (such as greed, selfishness, fear, envy, jealousy, and wickedness) is a result of racism.
In the previous write-up, the whole idea of race was debunked because there is only one race: the human race. Any other divisions are baseless and mere social constructs. The idea of racism itself is based on a faulty understanding of the human race and the false assumption that some people are inferior.
These assumptions are wrong because nobody is superior to another, and it is wrong to use the color of somebody’s skin to define who they are. I demonstrated that color is very unreliable and should never be used to classify people.
When we throw color out and throw racism out, ethnocentricism moves in to fill the void. Ethnocentricism becomes bad when the desire to support your own people conditions you to exclude, exploit, discriminate, maltreat, and, in some cases, hate and murder other people that do not look like you, eat, dress, believe, and speak like your own group.
You will realize that since the original harmony between God and our ancestors Adam and Eve was broken, the relationship between people is broken as well. This brokenness is manifested through the excesses of ethnocentricism that, in many cases, has been given a pass, and racism used as a scapegoat.
I am going to expose the hypocrisy of many who scream at the racism between whites and blacks. These people behave similarly, discriminating against other people because they do not look like them in one way or the other. This behavior is driven by fear and ignorance.
