Response to Igel (Reply #14)

Sat Aug 3, 2013, 01:21 PM

15. @Igel, did a google search for the "Raven" quote at the end of your post.


Is there some personal "Insider" reason for that quote? Nothing against Edgar Allan Poe supporters, just curious.

If you've particular issues regarding my use of "Racism" vice "Racist", could you be more specific please. You seem to be pondering out loud in the reply you've posted rather than asking for detailed information. And I'm not inclined to ask anyone to STFU, although some replies strike me as facetious per this linked topic as I've already addressed.

Regarding the comments you've made:

From my perspective "institutional racism" defines "personal racism" for many, they've essentially been INSTRUCTED by what's socially accepted. The majority of people take their "Cues" of what's acceptable by observation of Peer Behavior, one reflects the other, members of the "Social Order" modify their behavior to meet what they perceive to be the "Expectations" of Larger Society.

So if I'm a White person raised in a Southern Red State, for instance, what's "intolerant" behavior isn't likely to be the same Regionally as I'd expect from White residents of, let's say, California.

Contemporary/Historical influences are also prevalent, since broad application of Civil Rights hasn't evolved all that much over the last few decades but those influences were much more controversial (and Resented) in the 1960s by comparison. So "Institutional Bigotry" can also be influenced by intentional Legislative Reform, obviously, and these factors change over time.

And Bigotry isn't necessarily Race-Centric, as I've reviewed, behavior of Society is reliably influenced by the Economic Goals of the Status Quo and "Institutional Bigotry" reflects those Economic Priorities, as I've posted in my first Essay and following comments.

Feel free to post further inquiries. Thanks.
