Racism is defined as a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race by Merriam-Webster.
Dictionary.com say racism is a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human racial groups determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to dominate others or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others.
These above definitions are consistent with most definitions of racism. They place all those who are a part of a named group, such as Black, Caucasian, Brown, Yellow, and whatever into specific categories to identify their individual characteristics. This is collectivism which promotes identification with groups and not based on individual characteristics.
The racist statement “Black Lives Matter” is what I refer to as the epitome of racism. Why does the life of somebody with darker pigmentation matter and not the live of somebody with less pigmentation? Is it simply because of the pigmentation? To assume so is racist at its worst.
The statement by Dementia Joe that if you are considering voting for President Trump and not him, than you are not black, is an incredible racist and condescending statement and should be soundly criticized by anybody who advocates for freedom and liberty and roundly supported and praised by anybody who supports a collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat, all virtually the same) community.
When you condemn an entire community of law enforcement for the actions of an individual, you are practicing the racist element of collectivism. When you condemn the killing of a subdued suspect because they were black, and not for the actions of the individual policeman, you are a collectivist.
When you support actions for anybody based on their race, such as special privileges or requiring higher or lower standards, you are practicing and encouraging racism. Perhaps the best-known individual who fought against racism, Martin Luther King, Jr. stated it best when he said, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
When you who run around screaming “Black Lives Matter”, understand that you are promoting exactly the opposite of what Martin Luther King, Jr. advocated. We will make progress, when all of us can say we will look beyond the physical characteristics and dwell on the content of the character. We will be much closer to achieving the essence of the dream Martin Luther King, Jr. had.
You have a choice, you can be a part of the solution or you can be the problem by justifying your outrageously racist sentiment as you chant a truly racist statement, “Black Lives Matter.”
