    Before there were nations and countries there were tribes which are extended families. The native American Indians and the Middle East tribes were often at war with each other. It kind of reminds me of inner city gang wars today. Each tribe respected it's own kind and no one else. It's sad but Africa is still eaten up with tribal warfare (Rwanda).

    The physical differences among races is so small as to be inconsequential. Cultural differences can be huge. Muslims, which are of the white race, tolerate rape, terrorism, murder and slavery. The US, which is predominantly white, has outlawed these acts many years ago. In spite of this reality there are many Muslim apologists out there who think the US is worse than the Muslims.

    Personally I believe the concept of race to be primarily a gov concoction very weakly supported by science and genetics. The reason the concept of race exists is to serve political goals.

    Some dictionary definitions of racism:

    Merriam-Webster:
    1. 1: 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
      2a : a doctrine or political program based on the assumption of racism and designed to execute its principles
    2. 2b : a political or social system founded on racism
    3. 3: racial prejudice or discrimination
    Oxford:

    1Prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior.
    1. 1.1 The belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.
    Cambridge:

    belief that people's qualities are influenced by their race and that the members of other races are not as good as the members of your own, or the resulting unfair treatment of members of other races

    Dictionary.com:

    1. 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.
    2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
    3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

    All these definitions are based on Perceptions rather than reality. All 4 of these defs say "the belief". The genetic difference between races is slim to non-existent. It is perception of a difference that cultural differences may result in one group being superior to another group in one way but not necessarily in all ways. Just because I know how to put bread on my table by holding down a job does not make me superior to an African tribesman who puts bread on his table by hunting. Some may perceive my job as superior but the reality is that both a job and hunting are capable of keeping one alive and supplied with food for consumption.

    My interpretation of race is that it is based far more on perception than rooted in reality. It is primarily a gov concoction and serves little if any useful purpose in modern society. Race is used (actually misused) today by special interest groups and gov to further whatever end they desire.

    A Nation Based on Birth and Not Worth Will Suffer Crib Death

    It's better to find out who invented a bad reputation for racism, making it a dishonest term employed to discredit the majority. In reality, outside the Matrix of false values, racism is a rational judgment based on sufficient evidence about the general behavior of a group. It is also driven by the survival instinct; therefore, those who preach that it is some kind of a sin don't want us to survive.

    It is not motivated by a bully's desire to pick out a random group to have power over. It is not a filling of a desperate need of losers to have someone to feel superior to. Having all that and more constantly drummed into our minds is an aggressive insult to common sense.

    Those who are born rich despise, hate, and fear all other White people. Their parents have told them that they were born with superior genes, implying that they have evolved into a separate race predestined to humiliate and rule over Whites who have not been born rich. In order to prevail over this Establishment and take away its future, Whites must focus on abolishing all birth privileges. If we have to do it on our own, so must they. Then they will wind up far below the guaranteed rank they get today.

    Mexicans have as little White blood as American Blacks have.

    You seem to be obsessed with your hatred for Islam to the point you should seek mental help if you are not under observation already. Christianity accepted rape, accepted slavery, accepted abuse of women, accepted murder especially that of Blacks, homosexuals, and others. But hey, lets just call that being an "apologist" for Islam. So, what makes you a racist? It appears that your obsession has led you to believe that White Christians are somehow superior to the Muslim community you denigrate even though, and you continue to ignore this in order to advance your racist views, that over 90% of Muslims oppose the irrational views you present.

    Was that when the White man began buying slaves off the coast of Africa, and then allowed them to die in the ships while crossing the oceans? Or was it when the White man declared that the Blacks were "chattel", and "property", of the White slave owner? Was that when Jefferson proclaimed that Blacks were 3/5 human? Or was it when the KKK began hanging Blacks? Maybe it was when the slave owners beat their "servants", or even raped their "servants". Just exactly when in your "informed" opinion did the government "concoct" this idea?
