Racism isn’t dead — it is hiding in the open.
Barack Obama’s presidency has exposed just how racist white America really is.
In 2008, a black man was finally elected president of the most powerful country in the world. At the time, many people (myself included) naively asserted that this will finally put a nail in the coffin of all the negative stereotypes that have been held about black people for good. Boy, were we wrong. It’s not for fault in Obama. No. Rather, his presence has exposed the raw, visceral, racist underbelly of white America that had been lurking in silence for so long. In this post, I will potently demonstrate the unpleasant reality that racism is by no means dead.

“While wisdom is the application of knowledge, experience is its only teacher.”
While watching the parade of idiocy that perniciously masquerades on the world scene through the efforts of the tepid human souls that find themselves caught up with them, I am compelled to observe that the quality of human nature is not quite as high as I imagined. People do some really strange things.
“When people go in search of the truth, they tend to find whatever it is they’re looking for, whether it is the truth or not.”
Remember when Pluto was a planet? Now it isn’t. Remember when removing tonsils cured tonsillitis? Now we know better. Or what about when the moon was completely devoid of water? Recent discoveries show otherwise. All of these things were true once. So I’ve got to ask a really tough question of you:
What is truth?
If survival is only for the fittest then all men weren’t created equal.
Survival is only for the fittest. No exceptions.
Life is all about survival. Survival is all about competition. There would be no point to there being a competition if we all were made exactly identical to each other. We may all be of the same general design, but where the environment is concerned, some of us are much better implemented than others. That’s why only the fittest will survive while even the fit, will perish.
