I did a lot of thinking over the past few days about my attitude towards certain groups and discovered, to my relief, that I am not a racist or a bigot!
I am however, a Culturalist.
That’s right folks, while White, Black, Yellow, Brown and Red might all be about equal as far as our innate abilities are concerned, how we use those attributes depends a lot on the culture we grew up in.
for example
About a hundred years ago Blacks and Chinese were about the same on the socioeconomic scale here in North America.
If you look at the two groups today, you will find a vast difference in our perceptions of them.
First of all, the Chinese are currently seen as being smart, polite, industrious,  hard working and a credit to their community.
Blacks, meanwhile, are seen in one of two ways!
They are either the same as most middle class whites, and therefore ‘colour’ is not really an issue any more.
They are associated with rap music, dreadlocks, bad grammar and crime,  making skin colour a major identifier!
WHY? You ask!
Culture, my friends.
Middle class blacks might as well not be black at all, because they fit into mainstream American society.
Skin colour is no longer an issue!
Blacks  on the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder, however, have developed a culture that puts them at odds with mainstream society ……………, and until their mindset is altered through education and perceptions of self-worth, they will always be at odds with the rest of us.
So, the long and short of it is that we shouldn’t have a race issue here in North America kids, but we do have some cultures that need to be changed!
