Exactly, and well spotted, that is why I asked. You appear to know the answer but seem to be reluctant to give it to me, which I find a bit disappointing, if not to say, stingy.

I don't know how you come to such a conclusion, or what these higher levels are supposed to be, or of what kind of value you are speaking about here. Of course there are a multitude of possibilities for valuing (assigning a value to) things or people or whatever in various different contexts. And certainly there is inherent value in life itself for the one who lives it (except maybe for an arahat like the Buddha, who said that he disapproves of even the tiniest bit of existence, or something like that).
But my question was simply: What has this to do with racism? That just seems to be logically inconclusive to me at best.
But I don't assume now that you can or will explain that to me. Anyhow, then, that's fine by me as well.

What do you mean? For you, or for me? Or maybe for (((them)))?
For me, at least, it is time now to sleep. Shadilay, brother.
