A point to ponder

Someone pointed out that my writing implies that I am a racist. I told him I absolutely agree with him. I am, a racist,I mean. I do not like all races, including my own. ( I am a malay,if that is important, just in case you're wondering ). Confused? Well,one of my hobbies is to convert people to become Confused-cius.

I do not like people with horendous civic mind. I get terribly annoyed with those who cut queue, do not give up their seats for the unfortunates,those who steal others' trolley at the supermarket, the righteous, people with deplorable toilet habits, who do not respect others,the selfish,greedy, lazy people, people who think it is okay to lie, cheat, hurt others intentionally, people who live a lie thinking it is hype, corrupted politicians (oops! Redundant!!!), I hate people who are judgemental with prejudice and bigotry as the basis of judgment....oh and many many more....in short, I hate most of the homo sapiens. That is why I think migrating to New Zealand would be a brilliant idea because the country is exceptionally beautiful, with great weather and they have more sheeps than the human species to put up with.

When we see people who are unfortunate, the disabled for instance, we tend to state to mind, their short comings. We pity them and thank God that we do not belong to the unfortunate statistics. Little do we realise that the characters i mentioned above, the characters of my fellow human being that i loathe is as good as being disabled, and in character,although unseen by the naked eye. The crippled character, is worst than a human's deformity, since the latter is something one was born with, where else, characters are something we acquired along the way. Why can't we open up our eyes, evaluate a person in a different angle, not just what the eye naked can perceive, instead, what the eyes and mind can see beyond the physical handicap. It's what I'd call, dissecting one's soul.

So yes, I am a racist. But my definition for racism is not based on the color of skin, religion, country etc, rather, on the human character. To me, people who have poor soul nourishment can be made into a race. The people who try to strive for betterment in enlightening their soul belongs to another. "Race" is a term created by us human beings. Why can't I redefine "race"?

According to the Wikipedia Dictionary :

"The term race describes populations or groups of people as distinguished by various sets of characteristics and beliefs about common ancestry. The most widely used human racial categories are based on visible traits (especially skin color, facial features and hair texture), and self-identification.[1]

Why can't we redefine "traits" as human characters, instead of human features? Think about it.......

So if we follow your philosophy to its logical conclusion, we may end up with a bunch of skinheads-like groups of youth walking around being excessively well-mannered. They mob to open doors for women, violently help elderly people across the road and agressively say greet people politely. On the back of their T-shirts, they will write, "F**K OFF, PLEASE"

why not. Skin heads do not bother me. Appearances don't mean a thing most of the time. Heard of "don't judge a book by its cover?". Its how you set your mind. For instance, men with long hair in Malaysia is looked down upon, but remember, most of our prophets had long hair, nothing wrong with that.

If there are well mannered, good soul skinheads, I'd respect them more than the well dressed con men.....or the well mannered well dressed corrupted politicians politicians.
