The white race has claimed to be the superior race, especially compared to the blacks of Africa. I have a problem with that claim because it has long been a political statement designed to justify enslavement of Africans. Also, superiority depends upon how one measures any perceived differences. It also depends upon the race or the culture. Each race is known to have widely different cultures, so it is the latter which is better compared, not the superior race.
Let us start be saying all races have their strengths and weaknesses. The Whites seem to be best at inventing powerful weapons for warfare and conquest, while the Blacks may display more peaceful human values that are more in harmony with the natural environment. Who’s to say which is best? That is a political question with no real answer, except in specific situations. Thus, the answer is that all humans have essentially identical abilities and attributes with no two individuals alike! .. We are all just ONE BIG FAMILY.
Then why can’t we all get along?
Maybe, because our powerful brains have not yet learned how to overcome our primitive animal instincts of tribalism, or how to escape our faulty childhood teachings. Hate and distrust have too often been taught to our children. The West has long declared the superiority and privilege of the White culture, and that was not to be questioned. .. Their short-sighted policies are now being questioned.
WHITE PRIVILEGE MUST END
We Can Do Better, .. And We Must.
SOME OTHER RACE COMPARISONS
Think of how forgiving the Vietnam people have been. We bombed and killed more than 3 million, mostly innocent non combat-ends. Compare that to what has been the long tradition of the Europeans. They are trapped by their tradition of revenge for any past discretion’s. An Eye for an Eye and a Tooth for a Tooth, leads to constant struggle and strife. A more advanced culture would say “What’s past is past; Let us move forward into a better tomorrow”. This logic makes us now think again about the so-called Superiority of the White cultures, and with the White Race, currently on top.
One can make a strong case that on many moral levels, the other races are superior to the Whites. or to their aggressive cultures. This dominate culture has no future. It is self destructive. The future may be with those who live closer to the land, nature, and human values, .. And. .. live within the limits of Earth to become again, clean and healthy.
Blacks and Women for Future Leaders of Superiority
Lets also examine Male Leadership today and in the past. The past centuries were dominated by Male Leaders, resulting in lots of Wars, Conquests, and Violence. Future wars will no longer be profitable. We tend to underestimate our enemies resistance, and are denied a quick victory as before.
Currently we are starting to see Women leaders in many major countries. This is a most important trend because Women are better equipped to foster Love, Respect, Peace, and Compromise which leads to a more humane living environment, and a healthy Earth climate. .. Our human family seems ready for major changes.
What could Black Women do for Earth Health?
Let us give them a try.
Could they do any worse!
We Could do worse yet!
*** It is up to us. ***
Maybe the question should be “CULTURE SUPERIORITY Examined.” .. There is only one race, THE HUMAN RACE.
Mother Earth is our only home.
The Superior Leaders will stop their pillage
and damage to our precious home.
This author was born in 1928 in the USA. I am 100% Caucasian and a University graduate. .. For the record, here are my opinions.
I gratefully enjoy the modern world and all the privileges I have benefited from being white. However, it is now time for the global structures of power to be turned over to a new and different group. That is especially needed in the USA, the most racist and wrong-headed country in the world. Wrong-headed because of their destruction to our Earth, and their stubborn unwillingness to acknowledge the facts, or to take serious corrective actions.
America, under strong Black Female leadership may be our only hope for a decent and moral future for all races and all living species on Earth.
The alternative of continued 20th Century leadership will be good only for the white, elite, ruling class. The others will either perish or become vassals of the elite.
Climate change will start to cause massive global crop failures in just a few short decades. Mass fear and hysteria will prevail, and only the rich, and those with guns will eat well. The white elite will do fine, but the masses of darker skinned will not.
Now you know the price we pay for white supremacy and leadership. Change cannot come too soon.
