disturbing things that go bang! in the night
I just came from visiting a KKK website. I don't know why I had the desire to but I did. It was so disturbing. I've been fearful of those kind of people my entire life. That fear is slowly dispersing as I get older, my disdain at what the KKK stand for grows everyday. I wonder if there has ever been cases of those clan members who left the organization and changed their racist views. I'm sure there have but I've never ever heard of any. I also just found out that some quite significant white skinheads headquarters is located in a suburb not too far from where I live. I shouldn't have been surprised but I was. That just sucks. I don't think there's anything wrong with being proud of who you are but damn...can't you take pride in yourself without using it against others who you know nothing about? I started to get kind of pissed off when I was reading the KKK's reasoning on why mixed marriages are wrong. Where the hell do they get their so called facts? They said that it's been scientifically proven that all black people are not as intelligent as Caucasians, that anyone who isn't of "pure" white ancestry is not as smart as someone who is. Bullshit. Then they went on to say that if a white woman or man has a child with someone who is black or of any other non-white race, the child will be of lesser intelligence than they are because black genes are dominant to white genes,4-1. That is one of the stupidest things I've ever heard. I've heard that before of course, but just not for a long time. Maybe I shouldn't have checked out their site. NOw I really want to write a book about my experiences growing up. That site has given me even more conviction to stand up and speak out about how I've felt for so long and how I feel now. Racism used to make me cower but now it dissapoints and enrages me. Someone who practices racism has to have reached about the lowest level of human existence as far as mentality and clear thinking goes. Dammit we're all the same inside. Sure, our hair, skin color, and several other physical features are different, but such things are so trivial. We all feel, think (at least I thought we all were able to think), breathe, bleed, etc. I don't think that racists can survive the evolution of humanity. If you spend enough time thinking about the truth of things, if you're paying attention to the ways of people and how they all come together to create great masses of people you will see the reality of things. If you pay attention you know why certain things that shouldn't be are, even if you know that they won't be easy to remedy.
