Thought for the Day 31 July 2017

The recent outbreaks or, at least discoveries, of racialism has once again reminded me just how retarded some people are. Such behavior is obviously unacceptable but it is also incomprehensible for any reasonably open-minded and educated individual. Do these people not know that there is only one species of human being? Do they not know that we all share the same DNA? Do they not know that racial characteristics evolved purely because man was a wandering animal who migrated to all parts of the world and encountered radically different climatic and environmental conditions? Racial characteristics resulted from genetic combinations designed to protect people from the extremes of their environments. For example, dark skin developed to protect against overdoses of the rays of the tropical sun and the wide flat nose and folded eyelids of Mongolian people are adapted to the extreme cold of northern Asia. The differences between racial groups are literally only skin deep. So racialism has no scientific basis whatsoever – we are all the same under the skin. Therefore to be a racialist means that you are ignorant and probably stupid. Either that or you are just downright bigoted. Whichever is the case you should get educated, get smart or keep your stupid mouth very firmly shut.

Thus my thought for today is:

“Empty barrels make the most noise, so a wise fool is a silent fool!”

Enjoy the week.

Cheers,

Dave
