Its not racism...its just keeping the races pure...do you agree with this dude?
So I watched this guy on Dr. Phil who is accused by his family of being a racist. He didn't want his grand daughter to marry from another race. But he argues that he is not a racist coz all he is trying to do is to keep the races pure. Much the same way we do when we breed animals...does he have a valid point or would you consider him racist?
Well, I don't think it is racism, but I think the whole idea of forbidding your child to married the person of another race, to keep your race pure is wrong. You can at most, forbid yourself, only
I don't know about racism as the word is thrown around a lot. I do think the idea of a pure race is wrong and has got us into a lot of trouble in the past.
Geeze did this guy have to stop in the middle of the interview to report to his Führer? People are not dogs. You can't only have purebred. In that sense I am a proud mutt. I'm German, Indian(the tomahawk kind. Not the ethnic kind.), Irish, French, Black Dutch, and just about 312 other nationalities. Racism is pointless and I really can't fathom how someone can hate someone just because of the color of their skin. I would say that constitutes the title of racist,
I'm glad I'm not the first to think along the Hitler lines -- that's exactly what that reasoning brings to mind. How can anyone say that any particular person is of "pure race" or that that's how it should be? There are very few people left in the world who have always been from the place they are, all the way back in the history of their family. Or does this person (restraining myself from a stronger word here) think that purity just runs along skin color lines?
I'm not sure if racist is the most accurate word to use for somebody like that, though racism is obviously part of what's going on there. When someone starts talking eugenics, I start thinking an even more deeply disturbed individual that I'm not even sure if there is an "ist" label that perfectly fits.
There is something beyond racism here. First, it is none of his business who his granddaughter marries. secondly, someone who starts talking about pure races is someone who wants to exterminate multi-racial people.
He sounds like an idiot, and I would love for someone to dig a little into his 'race' and see how pure he really is, especially if he lives in America. In long terms America is such a very young nation, and we ALL came from somewhere else if you dig long enough I'm sure he would find as many mixtures as the rest of us. Also, it's 2011, WTH is wrong with people? In my mind we are finally getting closer to becoming just plain old 'humans.' Without the stresses placed on previous generations about loving someone of a different race slowly we are becoming a society where we can all finally stand on equal footing without judgments being thrown around. There will always be some who stand in the way of progress though unfortunately. All I know is I have a mixed son who is 3 because I met and fell in love with a man, he also happened to be Japanese so according to this guy, my sons blood is un-pure? It's absurd to even say it out loud. Blood is blood, and people are people.
What is racism? Expecting your child to stay within their own racial group is not racist, it is just personal beliefs. The problem with this thinking, though, is that we no longer have true blood lines in every geographical location. Yes, some people try to stay within that context, but many do not. It is no longer Mexican, Cuban, or African. It is now Mexican American, Cuban American, African American, or other mixtures of ethnic groups. The true races of yesterday are not going to be the true races in 50 years. Yes, there will still be some lingering folks who might be from a true blood line, but not many. I would be more concerned with my child being happy and finding their best friend and soulmate instead of ending up with someone they are not happy with, just because they are white.
Wow, calling that guy a racist is an insult to racists.
I mean, like, his mama should have sued the obstetrician who delivered him for malpractice, because it is quite obvious that the doctor seriously damaged the dude's brain by clamping his head too tightly with the forceps.
I consider the guy an idiot. I suppose when he introduces his wife and sister - that there is just one woman standing there......
I'd definitely consider him a racist- as well as a few other less-polite terms
I believe that miscegenation should be regulated. It's not about discrimination, but about cultural and ethnic preservation. I'm pure Arawak. But of course, I am highly against ethnic cleansing.
