The constituent parts of 'racist' bullying as described on 'kidscape' carries all the constituent parts of 'gingerism' thats why I ask 'what is the difference' and believe there isn't any difference. Nate argues semantics and has a fear of offending someone.
I'm not decrying the terrible history of 'racism' or that it still continues today but today you couldn't have a 'Santa love kids, even Black kids' xmas card or any other type of 'Black' joke. You will never be able to legislate ignorance & stupidity out of the human race but to keep arguing that ridicule & 'name calling', social isolation & social exclusion affect a Black individual more than a Redheaded individual is to say that Black people are not the same as the rest of us.
That is not my view but most of you seem to have that belief even Black people themselves. I think Black people are just like me and are affected just like me when their colour is derided that they bleed just like I would bleed if stabbed. That to be seen, to be recognised as something more than just the colour you were born is important to an individual.
Racists see only colour - they do not see or recognise a human individual.
Gingerists see only colour - its all they - its all they say - they don't see an individual human.
Anyway I won't be blogging no more though I'll continue to follow - keep abreast. Madasa
