Why do you suppose racism is bad?

It’s bad because you’re making a subjective assessment about something that people can’t control.

Is it bad because you are judging people for something they have no control over? In this case genetics? Is it bad because of their genetics, skin color sometimes, you are assuming if you have this then you must be that… and you can make this judgement a priori?

Oh, sweet Jesus. :-) Stop complicating a simple thing.

<snips a lot of really, really long rationalizations which are rather besides the point>

As long as people like you believe it is ok.. to call a country a shithole, yeah.. like India, or America and nobody calls you on it…

Uh, if you had bothered to read my posts, you’d remember that I said just the opposite. I do NOT think it’s “OK.” This “debate” (such as it exists) is about the fact that calling a country a “shithole” does not logically imply that the PEOPLE in that country are “<negative term of your choice>”.

And then, I apparently wasted a good deal of bandwidth giving you a perfect example of something personally experienced where a country (from the standpoint of infrastructure) is shit, but the people are — -just — -plain — -wonderful — -people.

And yet, you continue to go on refuting something I did not say.

Well, I’ll leave you to it, then.
