Has humankind learned anything about racism, ethnocentricism, & intolerance from the
pivotal events of the Holocaust against the Jews, Roma, & Slavs during World War 2? Has humankind become more or less racist, ethnocentric, & intolerant as a people? Why? Why not?
No, we haven't, because Angela Merkel of Germany was allowed to invite any refugees that could arrive into Germany, then told EU members states "you will take in as many as we say and give them welfare or we will withhold your nation's rebate of EU payments". It is akin to the federal government telling states "do what we say or you won't get federal funds", except with regard to a million supposed Muslim refugees who quintupled the rape rate in Norway and were guilty of mass sexual assaults of women, while the states are told to cover up the rapes because the reputation of the rapists are more important than the safety of women.
This same group, members of a true rape culture, also hate Jews per the Koran. The same spike in rapes they are guilty of has been accompanied by a spike in anti-Semitic attacks. The shooting at a French kosher deli made the news as terrorism, while individual attacks and murders rarely make national news even as someone screams "Allahu Akbar" while killing a Jew.
Europe is tolerating an intolerant population that violates women's rights at the most basic level and Jew's survival. When a government cares more about the image of the immigrant/assailant over the safety of its most vulnerable populations, it has lost both all legitimacy and common sense.

I've been here longer than I probably should have been, reading a lot in this forum. I have come to the conclusion that I have found an answer or two, so I don't begrudge the experience. I have, at times, been as intolerant as the next person. It seems to me that the following...

In a conversation about racism in America today, a young relative, made this statement'"It is worse than it was six years ago!"It took me a moment to catch his drift. He is a young, (many times naive), anti-Obama conservative and I took his comment to mean it is worse since Pres....

After the holidays I am going to go Gluten Free and Dairy Free to find out which I'm allergic to, and perhaps move on from there. I have done the Gluten free thing, which is not terribly difficult for me. I have mostly gone dairy free, but I'm not strict on it, and am rather partial to cheese,...
