I am rarely serious about things but rasisim especially in my own country is definitely on the list.
risking to highjack the thread...
full support here from me.
I may be not that clever as I would like to think but I know some things:
a) since I live in Germany, in a multicultural 12-persons-house, I started to dislike some 'persons' (no nations, no races to mention) differentiating them in basic terms - i.e. the one doesnt wash everytime the dishes, the other one has strange look in the eyes everytime I see him/her, the third is listening music at 2:30 a.m while I need to sleep cuz I must go to work at 5:30 am, or maybe its the far eastern guy whos cooking awfully things and I could only puke just cuz of the look of it, besides it smells really bad in the whole house after that, etc, etc.
b) I know that the romas (even if saying 'ciganin' - that is not expressing offense in my own terms, the same as 'n.igga' - i.e. 'black' sounds as an offence to me and not the first one) are making so many children and mainly because of the social help they get from the state. More children - more money - but less money for the child itself, but more for the father to drink, eh!!! I know that many of them are maybe in reality lazy or they go stealing, etc, etc.
c) But I know that racism and intercultural hatred are no terms providing reasonable solutions. They are nothing new. They are implied in the project of our modernity with the expansion of the nation state. So far so good, but the problem is that we think them in terms of unquestionable facts, take em for granted, while they are nothing more of illusion that can transform itself in ****ing devastating energy (2 WC, all inter-racial and intercultural wars are the least to mention). Nations aer something so artificial and still there are so many ppl to believe in the POWER of the holly race or the supremacy of its culture over others, woooo. Too badm, huh. Prosvetlenie mu e maikata, a ne nqkakvi palqci i klouni - 4e da ne kazvam po-silni dumi - ot roda na Volen Siderov.
i could go far with it but prefer to stop as it's really another sick (political for those who didnt get it - no sport) topic here.
Interesting FACT: no matter where you come from, what culture has formed you or what colour of the skin you got - WE ALL are the grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-etc-etc children of a whatever african woman hundred thousands of years back. More - you breath in the atoms and all that chemical stuff from the last breaths of any given person on the ****ing planet. Hard to imagine, eh?
