Default Racism Is A Two Way Street

Quote:
Racism is generally defined as actions, practices, attitudes, or beliefs that reflect or support the racial worldview: the ideology that humans are divided into separate and exclusive biological entities called "races". This ideology entails the belief that members of a race share a set of characteristic traits, abilities, or qualities, that traits of personality, intellect, morality, and other cultural behavioral characteristics are inherited, and that this inheritance means that races can be ranked as innately superior or inferior to others

I hope people have the sense to base their vote on Policies and whatever else influences them, and not solely on race/colour.

It is, unfortunately, very much a two-way street. It cosses all party lines, nationalities and any other defining characteristic.

It shouldn't exist, this defining of a person by their skin. But I guess since it is the most visually obvious thing, people always will.

The last poll of black people that I saw had Obama at 98% and Romney at 00%. Racism, pure and simple.
