this doesn't really shock me, as racist people are often the people BIGGEST HYPOCRITES in the world. in fact, if you were to look up in history back when america had slavery, those racist slave owners used to have sexual affairs with their slaves ALL THE TIME! yet, it was always vilified in early films that black male slaves lusted after white southern slave owner's daughters. when in reality in most cases it was the slave owner lusting after one of his slaves. hence, the hypocrisy there. any form of racism is a hypocrisy. if you condone it or try to justify racism in any form or manner, then you must believe in the concept that "SOME PEOPLE ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS." If you do believe in that ideal, then your a hypocrite.
sure, you can look at a man that happens to be black or jew or whatever, and say.."hey there goes a jewish guy!" sure, you can say that. however, is that all you see in that person? just a jewish man? what if he was wearing a nice suit and carrying a brief case? maybe that means he's a rich lawyer or an important businessman? or maybe he's just another poor middle of the line office employee. therefore, you should never judge a book by it's cover. for if you do, then you'll never truly know anything about that person. i should know. as people ALWAYS make assumptions about me all the time, that i find annoying. however, i don't complain, as they'll never know the real me. they'd rather make blind assumptions, instead of ASKING me who i am. that right there is the biggest problem about our society. we make too many brash assumptions with very little to no proof other than our own alleged GUT FEELING! that's why america itself is a hypocritical society in every sense of the freaking word....
Isn't it interesting that the more vehemently a person is against something, that in time, we learn that in many cases the biggest reason is because they themselves despised in their own self. Case in point: A woman I know vehemently speaks against homosexuality, yet she has never married, only keeps the company of women, and is quite possibly a lesbian herself. I think she probably despises herself, is self conflicted, and therefore lashes out at others who are like her. And she doesn't even have to actively be involved in any sexual behavior, either.
I see this in famous tele-evangelists, who preach about the abominations of adultry, police who do actively pursue drug dealers, but are users themselves. I knew a man who was vehement against arrogance and pride, wrote articles about their negative effects, yet I have never known a man so prideful and arrogant.
However, I don't mean to generalize, because it's certainly not true in every case. But in many cases I see a correlation.
Hitler had all his post WW1 gay friends rounded up and executed on trumped up irrelevant charges. He had been in a gay relationship with one of them for over two years just prior to being elected in a unionist party.
When he came to power he did his best to remove all evidence of his miserable past, in case he was blackmailed; which of course he was by his old gay friend who was in charge of the brownshirts... Hitler had him commit suicide during a purge called 'the night of the long knives.'
So yeah... you're right Daniel... so never brag about things ..... 60 years later... They'll tell stories about you in a forum...
