I think most of you are too young (and the wrong races) to have realy experienced racism.
I think ALL of you would think differently if it was you being discriminated against.
Don't be fooled racism exists still.
>>Because using it infringes upon the rights of others more often than not. Plain and simple. I don't understand how you can't see that.<<
Because I remember how it was, and see it lingering still.
The referendum in Australia in 1967 where Aborigines were given citizenship (after they were given the vote in 1965).
How in 1968 Aborigines were still not allowed to swim in the same pools, or sit in the good seats in the cinema.
How they were taken from their parents and sent to mission schools. Their wages collected and kept from them. All in an attempt to wipe them out by 'assimilation'. How we treated the Aboriginal vets of WW1, WW2 and Vietnam makes my blood boil.
I'm sorry for what we did to Aborigines, even if it was done with the best of intentions. I did not do it, but Aborigines are still affected now.
Accept that we still need to discriminate to even the balance. Centuries of discrimination will not disappear in a few decades.
