Tom, you wrote that racism is "phony". Explain."
I can conceive of nothing in religion, science, or philosophy, that is anything more than the proper thing to wear, for a while." ~ Charles Fort
I mean, let's just assume for a sec that over five hundred years ago, everyone owned two suits at most and hardly anybody traveled.
How would those two assertions, even if true, entail "racism is phony" as a valid conclusion?
I think you are having some problem here with multi dimensional thinking. Three or more dimensions.
The reference to white men and how many suits of clothes they likely had...is to show that they lived little better than most people on the globe..500 years ago. And if you know about conditions in Europe...many of them lived far worse than many people in this world. Particularly if you had any idea what sanitation was like in most cities.
The whole point of that is to demonstrate to those on every side of the Racist fence...that the white man can boast nothing of himself by race for history reads that it profitted him nothing. For he always had his race. So for any white man..and I have met a number of them ...to boast of their race...they had to go to pubic school to get that naturally dumb and ignorant.
Now if public schools wanted to teach something about the phonyness of racism...the should be teaching that simplicity...but they dont dare. They would rather teach guilt/PC education and promote racism.
What you now have going on is some groups capatalizing on this ignorance across the board and promoting racism and more separation for the purposes of political lucre and division..not unity..and certainly not the Truth. The racism dependent cottage industries of which I spoke. They must have and promote racism...because if more people understood what I stated about the white mans history...these racism dependent cottage industries would begin to be shown for the "Shakedown " industries that they are.
These racism dependent cottage industries today..must have and promote racism...to keep their power base..not independent thinking individuals. THey are working with the blessings of the body politic and the phony media..to shakedown everyone using, stroking, and promoting more racism..while attempting to look non racist. They must have racism like a addict on a drug. They must turn over every stone to find more racism...or else!!
That is what I am saying about the phonyness of racism.
I am given to ask myself if this is to deep for someone heavily on the flesh...verses the spirit??
Hope this helps some of you folks out here.
Oh..by the way concerning your signature statement...I am attempting to go through Charles Fort's book ..."The Book of the Damned " and other of his works but his writing style is a bit strange to me. It takes some getting accustomed to it. I have his book up here in my radio room.
