You are completely missing the point and turning this into a different debate altogether.binocular wrote: ↑Tue Aug 21, 2018 9:26 amAnd blacks quite likely think whites are disgusting. Many yellow Asians believe whites are disgusting. Traditional Indians/Hindus think whites are inferior ... and so on. It seems rather common.
How many blacks would marry a white person? Or a Chinese person?
The point is that Westerners are actively taught to be tolerant of all types of diversity which helps encourage lovingkindness and compassion towards everyone.
Saying that the Blacks had it coming and that they are no better than other racists is irrelevant.
Even if what you said was true, it would still be a fist step in the right direction. That's how things have always been, including the evolution of women's rights over time.It's not clear how this enforced tolerance of other races works out in reality -- just look how it works out in the US. Surely, it makes people more accepting of others on the surface, nominally. It makes for good self-presentation -- appearing tolerant, compassionate, accepting of all: that's awfully fashionable these days.
But beyond that, I don't think it's real or has any substance to it. Possibly, many people are that way because it's fashionable, because it's some kind of social norm; and not because they would, you know, actually care about the people of other colors, religions, etc.
Yet I think you are wrong, and that the people who still are racist and intolerant belong to the adults generation, and that you would be hard pressed to find any Westerner under the age of 15 who would be racist or mysoginistic or homophobic, if of course they have been educated to be tolerant without religious or foreign cultural interference.
