The fight against racism should not be violent

by on Aug.21, 2017, under Posts>Opinions>Society>Racism

Racism comes from two sources. One is prejudice. The other is the desire for protection of interests.

When people get violent, it is either because they want to protect their interests, or because they disrecpect the people they abuse.

The fight against racism should not be for the protection of interests because there should not be real conflict of interests between those who embrace racism and those who fight against it. The fight against racism should be for overcoming prejudice only. So it should not be violent. If those who fight against racism get violent out of disrespect for those who embrace racism, then they are becoming the people who they fight against.

Most people who fight against racism are not violent. But some are. And those who use force are increasing tension with those who they fight against and invite more violence.
