Damn, I guess I am racist then. I inherently distrust people with any sort of hair. Or eyes. Or skin.Racism is discrimation based on belonging to an ethnic group with a distinc feature (like color of skin, shape of eyes, color of hair).
I don't know if you intended it, but this got a huge grin and a snicker from me. Still, there is, or has been, a lot of targeting of subcultures, at least over here. (Of course it is usually more a clashing of subcultures, but not always. Sucks when you belong to two or more in an area at a time when that clashing is going on between those subcultures.) I feel this could be a fun/silly discussion, and I would love to be involved in it.You got confused here. I was referring to cultural biases, not subcultural biases.
On a somewhat more serious note, with something I have never really understood: what about hate flung at people that grew up in our live in a certain place/region? Let's look at the US to start with, where I know there is some negative views of people from the southeast, or the northeast, or the west coast (mostly California) and so on, by people from other areas. To me they are all Americans, and humans. For a more geographically limited example that may be more familiar, it isn't uncommon to have one city vs. another, or even the people from a town and those from the rural regions nearby. If none of that would be considered racism, how is it that certain views against Hungarians would be? Are Germany and Greece further away from each other than NYC and SoCal?
Lots of stuff in that post I don't exactly like the sound of, but if it all worked out right it would be nice. I don't think this would really lead to a utopia, but let's pretend for a minute. Due to just the variety of interests and hobbies I have, because I am assuming others also enjoy a bunch of different things, working just to keep busy and getting paid just so you can have what you need to live, there is still plenty that will be created merely because we can, plus all the benefits that will come along with that ("look everyone, while repairing/restoring/improving this thing for fun I came up with this idea that will make it work better/last longer" "great idea, I am going to test this a bunch of ways to see if it would work for more than just your specific use" "if your testing looks promising I would like to implement this in the replacement thingies we will be taking out to a place, and if it works there maybe we can use it everywhere")Let's assume for a moment, industrialization actually happened and that we actually reached a high degree of automation on top of the former.
I like to imagine that music and film would be solely the realm of those that are passionate about it, and not just trying to make money. That sounds like a huge improvement, and lots more stuff for us to find and enjoy, even if it isn't popular. We kinda have this, but more people able to try their hand at it, and the people that are doing it able to devote more time and effort to it...plus more time for other people to spend watching and listening, and possibly being inspired to also give it a shot. We should try it just for the music and videos. Games too, probably.
(I know I probably put words in your mouth, I just wanted to see where the idea took me.)
