Could I ask you to do it all the time? I'd be grateful if you would. Thanks.

I hope anyone who posted anything on page 4 reposts it. I can't view page 4 at all.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

I've noticed the problem. Let's blame the Deep State.

Anyway, I probably said something on page 4 about racism being perpetuated by our government, and how it should stop institutionalizing racism and let free people work things out for themselves.

Don't worry, there's nothing missing. If there was I would repost it for you to see.

If you said anything important about racism I would have been the first to notice. Especially if it was promotion of same. There wasn't.

What do you think about it? When the census asks what race you are, doesn't that indicate the government is perpetuating racism?

Why do you think any government would want to classify people by race? I can think of some examples if you imagine it's never been done and has nothing to do with perpetuating racism.

Yes, most definitely.

It's done. I'm not sure but I think my government does it too?

Can you think of any non-racist reasons to do it? Maybe there is for census purposes?

If there exists a racism ill that needs to be addressed then would the question serve some purpose?

Don't go off on me now, I'm attempting to raise the level of the conversation because I think you're capable.

The purpose of the census is related directly to the equal representation of the people in the House of Representatives, nothing more.

Unless governments enact laws that treat one race differently than others, there are no "racism ills" that are not local and personal.
Those do still exist (mostly in "progressive" inner city ghettos created by racist government policies), but the solution is not the continuation of racism by government.

Edit: Why ask the race question on the census? So Congressional Districts can be gerrymandered to give "black" politicians an advantage in elections.

I was talking about non-racist governments like Canada's which isn't completely corrupted by the south's yearning for their slaves back. They lost, they can't have them back ever, and you can bet your sweeeeeet ass on that. Now go play in the traffic with your mutt friends.

You started the thread dolt, and it isn't about racism in Canada.
