Racism is a scourge. Judging another human being purely on the colour of their skin is idiocy writ large, and yet so many have engaged in it. So many have had their lives ruined because of it. It’s so completely unnecessary and it is not inevitable at all.The solution is education coupled with experience. Absolutely, it is a scourge which can be overcome…and it must be overcome as it is so beneath the dignity and potential of what it means to be a human being, the concept of racism is beyond contempt. In fact, it’s a form of mental illness. To see one group of human beings as being any less worthy than another group of human beings is a sin of inexcusable and monstrous proportions. Let no one, no one, defend the indefensible. Human beings are priceless, each and every one of us.
