don't make me tap the sign (the sign says "racism is only about 400 years old, was purposefully invented by major figures in the Enlightenment as part of their self-serving justification of power, and is not a primordial part of human nature that exists in all societies throughout space and time")
@melissasage need this in graphic form
@melissasage There was a lot of religion based prejudice though (persecution of jews, christians, and crusades).
And there was a lot of ethnocentrism/tribalism though. People have always found ways to opress trough prejuidice. And this seems kinda racist, no? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Irish_sentiment
I think it's dangerous to say that people don't have some inherent tribalism (although I agree that that tribalism doesn't have to imply racism), that makes us ignore the work and interaction with others needed to overcome it.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
