Such a challenge? Really?
Do you think I'm going to play racist nazi games with a ... well, a racist nazi?
And the rest of your responses: you and your arguments are sick. Sane society rejects you.
You're just going to have to fuck off.

Racism is evil.
Racism has both good and evil aspects.
I ran a test in such places some time ago on discrimination by color.
Not naming any colors, tell me, if you were in some strange situation, let's say at a raging river, --- where you can only save one of two people drowning, --- one being your color and the other being some other color; which color would you save?
While thinking, if you were the drowning one, what would you expect to chosen over the other?
Being selfish, our biases are given to us to protect us.
We are designed to get to our best possible end.

Not even one suggestion from stupid on his non-duality stupidity.
I hope I fare better on the rest.

You are a hateful racist. That stems from the same philosophy of hate for humanity that is Nazi. You are a Nazi.
If you find that too harsh a judgement then fuck off.

Re: Racism is evil.
You are gravely mistaken, there are no good aspects to racism, that is your own personal delusion.

Re: Racism is evil.
Do you see racism and tribalism as synonyms?
Are we tribal creatures?
If we are, and we demonstrably are, then recognize that those good qualities are synonymous to fellowship.
Fellowship is quite good.

About Greatest I am's original point in Message 1 that whites have made a tactical error by making abortion much less easily available, I think only white racists would see it in those terms. When presented with this possibility of being out-reproduced I expect they wouldn't express much concern, that they'd reply with various sentiments like, "We're still top dog. If they try to take control they'll have to deal with my 45." In other words, I wouldn't expect they'd give the matter any deep thought.
In another of his messages Greatest I am argued that we're all given to racist thinking, but I think most of us acknowledge that. The difference between typical human beings possessing the many ills to which the flesh is heir and actual racists is that the former fight against their racist tendencies while the latter revel in them.
A very short article in a recent issue of Scientific American summarized the results of a recent psychological study of the tendency to share fake news (share in the Facebook/Twitter sense) showed that both conservatives and liberals shared inaccurate or false news stories at about the same rate, but they then focused on a subgroup that displayed a tendency to share much more often. This group possessed lower levels of conscientiousness, where consciousness is measured by orderliness, impulse control, conventionality and reliability.
The found that low-conscientiousness liberals (LCLs) were average in their tendency to share fake news stories, but that low-consciousness conservatives (LCCs) were highly likely to share fake news stories. Even with additional safeguards in place, like labeling a story "Disputed" and even issuing an "Are you sure you want to share this fake news story" warning, LCCs would share the story anyway.
I wonder if racists would tend to measure low on the conscientiousness scale, and whether that would correlate with their tendency to cherry pick data (in effect, fake news) that supports their belief that other races are inferior.

Not to date has even one member here acknowledged his tribal/racist nature.
If you admit to it, have you connected it to your fellowship desires, which we all crave?

Why would anyone deny it? It's just a well recognised fact of our biology and our history as an evolved ape.
But it's also something that humanity has recognised as a flaw, we use our conscious brain to overcome it. Or some of us do.

Je suis Charlie. Je suis Ahmed. Je suis Juif. Je suis Parisien. I am Mancunian. I am Brum. I am London. Olen Suomi Soy Barcelona. I am Ukraine.

Faith is the denial of observation so that Belief can be preserved."

You obviously cannot read with any level of comprehension or are so racist you are unable to see anything contrary to your racist views.
I post quite often that I am Puerto Rican and about Puerto Rican issues. Having a foot in two cultures can be challenging.
I also fight having prejudicial and racist ideas, thoughts and biases that are based on purely stereotypical or non-logical reasons.
Oh yeah Fuck you.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?
