Prejudices don't have to be negative. Remember your discussion with LBV about genetics, it's a proof that you do have/had some of them. And the way you came here with a random accusation and the whole "You are all making excuses for yourselves, look at me, I'm so opened minded!", well, sorry, it was arrogant, because we were having an honest, civil conversation here (if it was only about ridiculous insults, I'd never participated). The lack of communication is the reason why prejudices still exist, don't you think? And if you don't want to hear the other side of the story, that's a definition of closed minded.
Well I really think that genetics discussion was a huge misunderstanding, it is never easy to discuss such an issue and sciences in a foreign language. The DNA is different for us all. Facts showed that the skin was getting stronger to the sun in different regions. So I was mainly wondering about it. I agree the sports stuff was really ignorant, and I quickly apologized about it. It is not like I thought it was a huge factor. Social conditions play a huge role and I didn't even think of it so yes I was being super ignorant. But I never claimed it as the truth.
I am sorry for saying that, I didn't mean to offend you. I know you are not racist. It is just that most of people who makes that assessement just refuse to admit they are prejudiced in a bad way. You know, the communication is truly important, and sorry but you are being unfair by saying my post might have been close minded. I am always posting in that kind of threads, I apologized a few times, and I am trying to keep my mind open. I am even answering you because you are spot on a few things, I just think there is a misunderstanding.
I apologize for talking to you like that. That was uncalled for. But I still believe that your sentence, in the grand scheme of things, are often used as an excuse to justify racism. Not you so I am apologizing.
Well, saying that mixing is amazing is sorta weird. It's a given thing. It's not more or less amazing than not mixing. You date a person, not his or her skin color. And how did the post about it come here? Did anyone assume that mixing is wrong, that we should all date within our race? I don't recall reading anything similar.
Well when I said "amazing", it was pure shallowness. Lol. That goes back to what Sammo and Novichok were arguing. I don't think having a type based on the colour of skin is necessarily racist. That includes a few factors. It is like my friend whose girls type is blondes with fair skin.
It has nothing to do with the person. It was just pure shallowness. Ultimately, you know I would not date a jerk, nevermind he is GOAT looking or something
now that would be prejudiced to date a guy only based on his origins, and none for his personality.
Sorry, I totally understand why you were uncomfortable with my post, hopefully that cleared up things. I originally made this post because I have been asked why something. (too lazy to look up the post). And the whole multiculturalism thing, that's just because I like it.
I think that helps to deal with difference in fact.
We all have our own beliefs and even our own sort of religion. It doesn't have to be believing in God or anything similar, but we have some beliefs. What I hate is dogma. And atheists can also be dogmatic, not only theists.
Edit: Don't take this as a personal attack, I'm not attacking you, but some of your opinions here.
Yeah true. You are totally right about dogma. I don't mind people who have their own beliefs but it is getting problematic when those beliefs can have a big influence on your principles. But then it can be a philosophical debate ; how do we know abortion is good or evil? And blablah...
