Racism Exists Because of Slavery: “after this, therefore because of this”

by Garrett O’Brien, originally published 09-Feb-2015

People will say racism exists because of slavery…

Because of this, because of that… then this.

Let’s take slavery, as many have bought what I believe is false.

If slavery is why racism exists, would not the eradication of slavery eradicate racism?

The wise and discerning know this is foolery…

This type of thinking is what is called in Latin, post hoc ergo propter hoc,

Or “after this, therefore because of this” and is also a very dangerous assumption as it assumes truth based on circumstances instead of facts and reality.

This type of thinking is common on both sides of the political aisle, though careful observation will disclose one side that seems to want to become experts at it…

Always be careful with what is being fed to you, unless you find that honey-coated pill is bitter to the core…

Testing what you’re listening to, be sure you hear what you heard.

If you reverse something you’re hearing and it is reasonable, then perhaps there is some level of truth to what you’re listening…

Example:

Debt exists because of slavery – Now, does slavery exist because of debt?
Definitely not…
Debt exists because more money is going out than is coming,
slavery exists for various reasons but not because of one’s debt.

Indeed, slavery existed for many reasons, often to pay a debt,
other times because the subjects were conquered by the conqueror …

There were many slave owners who were very humble as there were many who were not …

Many countries have practiced slavery for centuries, and only one country has eradicated it within its sovereignty…

Yet racism still exists within that one sovereignty…

So much for the existence of racism because of slavery…

Was not the first slave owner in the U.S. a black man who contested his ownership of his white slave?

So, why does racism exist?

Is not the very nature of racism indicative of a superiority complex?

That would be anyone who thinks that their race is better than another or others…

Racism exists because children see adults around being racist and since they are innocent themselves, as well as naive, and since they have learned to trust adults around them, and they believe that this is true.

In other words, racism for the most part is caught, not taught.

Racism exists because it was tolerated, and what we tolerate does not change…

Yes, as much as there are so many attempting to stop racism – if they are targeting the wrong reasons for racism, then what hope do they have to resolve racism?

Would it not be the same as a doctor telling you to consume cough syrup because you have gas??

Which also means, where else are we doing the same thing?

Test your beliefs…

Get rid of the garbage and focus on what is true.

Reflections from Decisive Liberty

The following stance is stated in the final paragraph of the oration given for the unveiling of our Statue of Liberty on the 28th of October, 1886....

... there is room in America and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development; but those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.

We at Decisive Liberty are committed to this stance and welcome all - if you have not already - to join us in learning to live by this stance.

There are only two nations that have placed God within their Constitution and way of life - one was created by God for the people he loves, and the other was created by people who love God.
