    History of Racism

    This quite interesting documentary that talks about the History of Racism by BBC

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5-R0rxQS7A

    So what do you think? What points you have against or with the documentary. It's 2 hour doc but worth the watch.

    I will make some points, they say that racism became a political, economic, and scientific discourse in the 16th/17th century and up to the 19th century. This is true. Racism did exist but it was not like this, it had different forms and applications. Another thing slavery was not the first seed of racism or and the rise of this despicable thought. What is interesting there is even romantic racism. Romantic racism is where the person admires the other, but still see's them as inferior and they need to be taught.

    I go along with romantic racism, although not considering the other as inferior, necessarily. I come from poor dysfunctional family. So I don't regard myself as superior. By enlisting in the army (1955), I got to see other parts of the world. I won't go into details. And even now, I sometimes see an occasional young lady exchange student, for example, who I could easily fall in love with (if I were 50 years younger). That includes Mid-Easterners. Obviously, they come from wealthy families, as the poor masses wouldn't be sending their daughters to a Pacific Northwest university.
