To think that this topic is racist is simply a display of prejudice. This is probably the most overlooked and unanswered question in human existance...an important one by the way. I pick my words carefully and if you had taken the time to go through the topic's narration, then you'd probably give me a better colored flag. It's quiet sad to see that certain people still live in the past, trying to fight a battle that's already been won by their direct descendants.
Pardon me for using the word naive for it only describes this situation better, coming from your angle. It is a fact that racism against black people surely comes from a white skin and some other, but definitely not a fellow black skin person. Am not only black, am from the most black concentrated country in the world, am African, a fully blooded Nigerian.
This reminds me of a post I came across a few hours ago on the homepage thread by probably one of the best commenter on this forum, she gave a literal breakdown on how this forum's output is being drawn back through lack of deep thoughts, reasoning and the ability to put out intelligent and compelling questions by some persons. Maybe I just got acquainted with one.
To think that we can't ask certain questions which you believe has too many conflict (conflict by the way is a literal element that creates challenge), is just funny. Where do we then leave debate in a forum like this. Isn't it the driving force for getting different opinions and eventually learning from different perspective? I refuse to reduce myself into asking questions that appear simpler than A B C.
I implore you to go back and read through the question again, not just the question but also the narrative. Then tell me if it isn't worth asking?
