    Her thoughts hadn’t yet evolved to the idea that racism isn’t racist?

    Seems that she was so disgusted with her husband’s irrationalizing she found him turning into the kind of person she could not live with. Good luck for her.

    I don’t know; we’re all part of the human race, aren’t we? Who can call that racist? A Martian? Soooo confusing! :- )

    for the last 20 years, I have been told that black Cannot be racist, no matter what they say, do, think or feel, and that white people cannot Not be racist, no matter what they say, do, think or feel.

    does this imply that maybe, just maybe, at least some part of that is wrong? because that would lead to all of it being wrong, which means ….

    which means this is a comic, and people are capable of racism so matter what enthicity they are, just as people are capable of understanding and acceptance, no matter what race they are.

    I don’t know where you get that stuff about only whites can be racist, racists can be of any color there are white racists and there are black racists and no one I know has ever said otherwise. ALL RACISM IS WRONG.

    “…for the last 20 years, I have been told that black Cannot be racist, no matter what they say, do, think or feel, and that white people cannot Not be racist…”


    Interesting that you followed the word “white” with the word “people,” but did not do this after the word “black.”

    Redkapoc takes issue with the gray area,
    I don’t know where you get that stuff about only whites can be racist, ….



    I smelled a Lot of tongue-in-cheek in his lines. The whole race thing is absurd and the more we talk about it the more the divisions stay !

    Look to 1676 as the British Empire starts sorting people by color and location to be a “race” and that is where it comes from. And the fact it is still used today shows you the lack of our education capability to correct that flaw in thinking which benefits the White “race” in using it.

    Early taxonomic models


    The first post-Classical published classification of humans into distinct races seems to be François Bernier’s Nouvelle division de la terre par les différents espèces ou races qui l’habitent (“New division of Earth by the different species or races which inhabit it”), published in 1684.47 In the 18th century the differences among human groups became a focus of scientific investigation. But the scientific classification of phenotypic variation was frequently coupled with racist ideas about innate predispositions of different groups, always attributing the most desirable features to the White, European race and arranging the other races along a continuum of progressively undesirable attributes. The 1735 classification of Carl Linnaeus, inventor of zoological taxonomy, divided the human species Homo sapiens into continental varieties of europaeus, asiaticus, americanus, and afer, each associated with a different humour: sanguine, melancholic, choleric, and phlegmatic, respectively.4849 Homo sapiens europaeus was described as active, acute, and adventurous, whereas Homo sapiens afer was said to be crafty, lazy, and careless.50 Wikipedia

    Depends on who they are racist against. Since Whites were the most common I understand why they would though it still isn’t good to blame all and therefore have angry feelings to those who would never agree to such things as black slavery.

    But otherwise they are not immune from it.

    Biology lessons are needed but what it comes down to is learned behavior carried over to the next generation.

    .
    Are you saying the Black Lives Matter folks are ignorant and in need of better biology lessons?

    Sure they have:

    https://www.pambazuka.org/governance/black-people-can%E2%80%99t-be-racist
    “Having said this, there are two things I want to address: First, I have lost patience continuously explaining what it means to be privileged to a white person and why black pain is valid. Second, I understand that black people have a right to voice out their pain. Their pain does not require validation from a white person to be considered real. If your arrogance as a white person is blinding you from seeing this, then it’s time you did some introspection. Do not be quick to jump on the “victim” bandwagon and accuse blacks of being racist. Black people can never be racist – we never had the tools or power to institutionalise racial oppression. So next time you as a white person want to accuse black people of reverse racism and insufficient anger – check yourself and your privilege.”
    .
    And as to whether or not anyone has ever accused all whites of being racists, United Nations Ambassador Andrew Young called whites racists id they thought in racial terms and racists if they DIDN’T think in racial terms. Presumably that would leave few out.
    Cursed if you do, cursed if you don’t.
    .
    Just because you may not know of these people doesn’t mean they aren’t known and CERTAINLY doesn’t mean they don’t exist.
