About Racism …

prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.
“a program to combat racism”
synonyms: racial discrimination, racialism, racial prejudice, xenophobia, chauvinism, bigotry, casteism
“Aborigines are the main victims of racism in Australia”
the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.
noun: racism 

The foregoing is a dictionary  definition of the word racism. Did you notice that it was not confined to the beliefs of white people only. In other words, you can be a non-white person and be a racist. In the incredible rush to slap that label on everyone people disagree with, it is terribly overused and misused. I submit that black people can be just as racist as some whites and equally guilty of the offense of racism.  I wish we could take a step back from labelling those with whom we disagree and just accept that they hold different ideas. 




The bizarre decline of Dr. Seuss

*The librarian, dressed as the Cat in the Hat  in the lower right photo is the one who rejected Melania Trump’s donation of #Dr.Seuss books saying they are steeped in #racist propaganda. Sad to see how accusation of racism gets tossed around so easily.*
