shinphish Acknowledging a fabricated reality through the lens of 'your place in it' - perpetuates it. Why not spend time talking about Protestant Phragility instead? Examining the fracturing of a religious belief system is a less tenuous reach than ignorance fomented skin pigment prejudice and bias creating cover for a system of government which is rigged toward specific beneficiaries. Adding energy to this ideology sphere doesn't help the healing of a nation and its people for prior wrongs of long dead individuals. If its cast in a light of the false reality we have to end to move beyond it as a species, its not helping as much as its perpetuating the sham.

Remorse based engagement helps individuals reconcile present behavior but the generalization of empty marketing-like terminology to try and help individual guilt through and by trying to 'share the load'.

I'm also a beneficiary of the Mongol dynasty, and they snuffed out civilizations and supplanted their own with great success, altered the flow of human history in many ways - yet I don't bare the burden of the guilt of what came before me, or have some need to reconcile with all that was extinguished to achieve the state of things in the present edge of the flow of time.

skin pigment, geo restricted breeding pools of humans, leading to a predominance of feature traits, does not make us less human or different human. what terminology, what biology, what associations, what alignments of faith, these are all ways to separate us from one another. The individual self must reconcile so much when deciding how connected to all that is, and was, and will be done by our species.

Discussion is good, but you set the stage for failure by all who would engage, by falling into the trap of racial ideology's false premise.

"Until the color of a man's skin, is of no more significance than the color of his eyes, I got to say... War"

That includes prideful recognition of your own skin, not just persecution of another kind of skin with a different pigment than of your own. The same is true of intimacy, organs you have or aspire to have, words to overly classify your distinctiveness can lead down the same path as any other failed supremacy ideology.

Embracing new dismissive pejoratives doesn't make you less fascist or less biased, or less prejudiced than your predecessor generations and their hate speech. Picking up words with less historical baggage doesn't mean the same contents of hate and bias aren't within the load you bring upon yourself to carry.
