“Love has a connection through electric intimacy, though does not let go for truth to soon be within another person’s hands. This betrayal of trust is no different than data being sold or simply stored at bases, during when information is given for the simple sake of what is inevitably short-term ‘interaction’ or ‘connection’. Unlimited data is limited, in the same sense as when intimacy is only ever a one-night’s stand, while the person who one connected with now runs off with the other’s secrets.”– Modern Romanticism
Philosophy – “Why Racism is not an Act of Hate” – 7/24/2020
“When focus of fear occurs, it is knowledge that is gained of a broken people. Someone pulls the strings of fear, in the conquering of false competition and needless battle. Some puppeteer makes the dolls fight, in their trivial fights to be weakened.”– Modern Romanticism
How often has a person been intimate with their “acts of racism”? Close in contact? They’d not be, unless they knew that person beyond the color of their skin.
For to know a person would mean to either love or to hate.
Hatred might blind the person. Though, so does love, to the individual who has a lover or a mother, or whoever else.
Do we know every dark secret? No. Though we must know something to enforce true hatred. Therefore, racism is impossible under the banner of actual hatred. It is true also that hatred cannot be of a collective. It is an emotion of loneliness, kept hidden, and only revealed at the mention of the specific individual. The fool who believes that racism is part of hatred, must deny that this suffocating emotion is a personal vendetta from individual to individual.
Whether love or hate, it is close, intimate, and understood. It goes beyond the shallowness of only noticing the skin color, to the heart of a person.
