Does evolution prove racism is a fact?

Recommended Posts

Racist feelings are a direct result of our survival instinct. Every single human has this feeling...this instinct. The question is not...'Are we racist?' but rather 'How does one deal with his/her instinctual bigotries?'

The Caucasians took gun powder made by the Chinese, and used it to fire bullets at each other. That gave them a distinct advantage over pretty much everyone at the time. They used this power to do what humans do...they used it to conquer other people. Its not that the Caucasians are/were any "better" than the other races. Its just that they found a power that the others didn't have. Had any other race...like perhaps the Chinese...realized the magic powder could be compressed with a lead ball and fired at greater distances at others...the Chinese would have been the dominant race at the time.

Humans have never learned to live in harmony. We make war as a matter of course. This is a direct result of another instinct we have...Greed. And greed is not just limited to humans. There are many territorial animals who will make war for more territory. This is the way of nature.

I would propose that instead of trying to deny mankind of its nature...that mankind harness these instincts and direct them towards more productive purposes.
