  1. A product of natural socio-biological processes of territoriality, suspicion and hostility?

    A product of the Enlightenment aim of scientific classification?

    A product of slavery, or the cause of slavery?

    A by-product of economic relations?

    its proximate cause today is 4, a product of economic relations. But i'd add to that that the type of society you are (multicultural, bi-racial, etc...) alters market conditions for individuals from each race.

    racism started when europeans colonized the world

    before then

    race didnt exist

    its a socail construction

    it was used to justify taking over lands in order to civilize people

    now a days, theres no need for race or racism

    holla

    Be careful... to say that race is socially constructed (which it is) does not explain away its existence and real life consequences.

    With respect to racism, I like Stuart Hall's conception of racism as "racisms." Which allows us to move away from thinking of racism as some uniform, monolothic thing and embrace its many manifestations across time and space.

    when someone is born......they recieve ONLY the physical attributes of their parents

    their soul or ether has been around since the beginning of the universe and in turn has it's own points of view.

    racists embrace racism as a basketball player embraces basketball.

    It is introduced to them first.

    They either like it or not, and from that point can grow their potential to be "all - star" racists

    Totally correct......but like basketball, once you learn to shoot free-throws well, is it possible to unteach that?
    or riding a bike? it'll always be there as something you do skillfully

    and like all human nature, we love what we are good at.....

    Either way you ARE right, and hopefully one day all racism can be untaught

    Or you could look at it with a Drug abuser anaology.

    You can use racism for long peroid of time, but once given
    the proper treatment never return back to it. Same way you
    can correct the lineage Behavior of Domestic Abuse.

    perhaps i'm more optimistic.

    By chance are you king menace?

    nah, never heard of him

    I've never really posted in the introspectrum, just audio forums,
    but as of late I find it of a necessity to discuss subjects like these with others.
