Racism was and is to this day a principle. A principle can be wrong. Just because you have an opinion or principle doesn't absolve you from being wrong.
To think it is just a matter of different opinion is ridiculous and uninformed
It is a principle for militias in africa to put ak47s in the hands of children, it is principle that justifies genocide within the minds of lunatics
Defending your belief based on principle an opinion is dubious at best.
Those are war crimes committed by (as you said above) lunatics. That has nothing to do with a difference of opinion. Theres no argument here. Believe what you wish, I will do the same. I'm not trying to change your point of view. I understand why you think the way you do and I'm content with that. I dont have to call you a "idiot, racist, ignorant just to make my opinion more prominent and/or believable. Theres no true justification. The proof there isnt is that were in the beginning of having the same long drawn out debate millions of people have already had. The same debate that ends up at the same starting point because it goes no where in changing anothers views. You have your views and I got mine. Why is that so hard for some to deal with.
