Racism is pernicious, particularly hurtful to those on the receiving end, and is little understood. Its causes are not just social, neither can they be remedied in an instant. Racism goes much deeper than simple social factors and it stems, primarily, from the following four causes: 1. Instinctive reaction for species protection: It is the most natural thing in the world to gravitate towards our own kind, to recruit in our own image and likeness and to feel comfortable with people who outwardly look like us, reflect who we are and behave like us. We are all ingrained with a sense of self protection, especially of our culture, territory, family, the things we cherish and which form our identity...

Remember the White, Rich, Male, Landowner who was the only person who's vote was worth anything? Well, those days have long been forgotten. Still, many have pondered that landownership has been used to keep down minorities from reaching their success. Perhaps, in the past that was at least partly so. One academic intellectual and liberal elite states it like this; "I do think that if private property was abolished, a ridiculous proposition for many, but for sake of discussion only, this would allow the racism problem in America to become less of a problem, perhaps non-existent. Not from a current perspective- but from a perspective where private property did not exist - Can one even imagine a place...

Police officers have often been accused of racism, sexism and, even on occasion, fascism but often these accusations are denied or refuted as being either completely unfounded or as being sourced from aggrieved individuals with no, or little, basis in fact. Nevertheless, the accusations continue. These accusations, largely, come from ethnic minorities and, in particular, the black and Asian communities. Women tend to be less vocal and even then, by women who are serving police officers regarding poor promotional prospects; on the whole, most accusations made against the police are in relation to race or ethnicity rather than gender. Are these accusations justified? Do the police suffer from...

> Thinkers know better than to be racist. It's generally understood that racists are, well, not thinkers. It's not that racists are necessarily stupid--it's that they are ignorant. We like to think that racists are choosing to hang on to their bias because they don't know any better. Those of us who are educated--or who think--can overcome any bias through information and intention. Right? Tell that to our brains. A recent study done at Dartmouth College presents some interesting ideas about racism and the brain. According to the widely published results of this research, racism can actually cause stupidity. Even professors from esteemed universities like Stanford are quoted as saying such things as...

From a medical point of view, racism doesn't exist. How can this be? There can be no racism if there are no races. Scientifically speaking, there is only one human race. When we speak of the various human races, what we are referring to is a set of outward appearances (the phenotypical expression of the genotype). These traits have accumulated within certain niches of the population as people mate with each other. Skin color is the easiest to understand. The more melanin in the skin, the darker the color. Discriminating on skin color is as silly as discrimination based on hair color. In certain populations other physical traits cluster with skin color: shape of the nose or eyes, hair color or...

I recently read the best article by Paula Brock of the Seattle Times dealing with the subject of diversity in the green movement. The piece started with an opening line that read" What's a nice black guy like me doing in a movement like this?" That question is the basis for today's blog. Typically when you hear about the environment or the green movement it's rarely if ever being discussed in the context of inclusion and communities of color. Generally speaking, the green movement has been seen by the African-American community as organically White. Why? Primarily because the main issues focused on by the masses in this movement do not tend to specifically address the issues that African-American...

Racism in America already looks less prominent because of the new President, Barrack Obama. President Obama is categorized black, a person of a minority group which suffered racial discrimination in the past. Obama's winning the presidential election was a dream come true for many. Now, all American non--whites seem revitalized psychologically in believing that the American Dream really is for everyone. Barrack Obama became not only a symbol of success; he indirectly boosted the self esteem of minority groups in American society. Children of different American ethnic groups will now see a president, who looks more like them than the previous American country leaders. The very young will realize that...

African American Chat

The single life doesn't suit everybody and at times it can be hard to meet potential dates, especially if you are part of a minority group. Although the African-American community has a thriving singles scene across the country many black people still find it hard to meet that someone special. This happens for many reasons, but the most common is that an individual is not interested in the club or bar scene for one reason or another. If it's in these cases where people turn to alternative forms of dating such as speed dating or phone chat. There are many phone chat providers offering African American chat lines that have been specifically set up to allow people to meet other black singles. Phone...

p>Over recent months the British Police Force has found itself dealing with a number of claims for compensation due to discrimination in the workplace on grounds of race and ethnicity. One Police officer has submitted a claim for £500,000 pounds because he believes he was discriminated against and denied a promotion unfairly. The claim is being made against the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Sir Ian Blair, who has been accused of sidelining, Asian and black detectives. There is no limit on the amount of compensation which can be in claimed in a race discrimination case which typically results in demands for high payouts. However there does need to be compelling evidence that the...

Racism is a forager of human souls. Racism like any other evil comes only to steal, to kill and to destroy our human soul (John 10:10). It hunts down, possesses and haunts its perpetrators, human targets or wounded souls. Only willing and receptive human souls can become recruits of a spirit of racism. The door to your heart has to be open before you can receive a mindset of the tradition of racism. The Bible clearly tells us that we must resist the devil [evil] and he will flee from us (James 4:7). Many Christians can testify to this because we have in one way or another either resisted temptation and overcame or fell to it and made a huge mistake that we regretted. Even non-Christians can relate...

The research I've done over the past month is teaching me about the strength of our subconscious mind and the fact that we are so unaware of its beliefs, opinions and affects it has on our behavior. I just finished taking the Race Implicit Association Test (IAT) which is available online. I recommend you take it, the link can be found at the end of this article. if you haven't already.
