i THINK RACISM IS DEFINITELY TAUGHT, YES, BUT I THINK YOU ARE IGNORANT AS TO HOW INGRAINED IT IS AND WHOSE FAULT IT IS.

OVER-SIMPLICITY IS JUST OVER-SIMPLICITY.

Maybe simlistic.

But racism is taught so tolerance can be taught.

Yeh, but the nature versus nature debate is rarely clear cut!

I never said it was and admitted it was simplistic.

Fair enough. We lead by example and are led by example so it's not like you're flat out wrong about anything.

...it's just that it's a bit of natural reaction to others/outsiders is all I was saying. Fear and Paranoia abound and chinese whispers don't help....

I was talking to my aboriginal mate this morning after we all had a drink last night and we got talking about that sort of stuff and he seemed to be saying that blacks have a reason to be racist whereas as white fellas don't... they think they know everything some of them but they don't! Thus reconcilitation is very difficult because nobody can agree on the friggin' basics... such is life!

Therefore not much conversation can take place without shedloads of tolerance on both sides....

That's tedious beyond compare but what sticks in my craw is him perpetually telling everyone else that they know nothing, only he does.



he knows how to talk shit better than anyone else I know, I'll certainly give him that :roll
FD.
I hope that bitch who was running their brothels for them gets raped with a cactus.
