"Racism and sexism are intertwinded and must be fought together. Always." ~ Gloria Steinem As are homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, fatphobia, classism, ableism, etc. [click on this image to find a bundle of videos and analyses on intersectionality theory]
Prejudice against skin colour is idiotic (doesn't mean it's not happening). However I think we need to try and take the debate up a level. The real clash now is between cultures. I believe in toleration of all sorts of opinions, but not cultural relativism (all cultures have something to offer though). The advancement of human culture depends on a bias towards humanism, reason, objectivity and the scientific method. Is that a racist thing to say because it is against religious belief? How?
