In all the time that I have had tekwh0re, I have never really touched on the issue of race or racism. See, race, racism, etc, are very touchy words and in my experience really are a matter of each individual's (strong) opinion (everybody has one).
Today, this is going to change. But before I go any deeper into this subject, I really need everyone reading this to create a blank slate in their minds for a moment and throw out everything anyone has ever taught you about race or racism.
Because all of it, each and every single bit is a part of a mass constructed lie. A social construct to keep the "haves" away from the "have nots".
The concept of "race" is a very outdated and outmoded one. What does race mean? Or even more to the point, what does race mean to the individual?
"I must preserve the white 'race'". "I must preserve the black 'race'". "I must preserve the Indian 'race'".
Well, what does that mean? If I were to go down to the scientific basics, does this mean that one needs to preserve the pigment of one's skin, the color and slant of one's eye, the hue and texture of one's skin?
Most people I know would say that preserving one's race is more than that. That to preserves one race is to preserve the traditions of their race, the identity, the culture.
And right here, immediately we have come into a fallacy. Race is not related to culture. Race is related to environment. Location is related to culture. The culture is not related to environment. Culture is a living, breathing thing. Culture can travel, change, mutate.
Let me explain.
No one understands all the reasons why we come in all the many hues and variations in this world. Science has explained that one's environment dictates how one looks. The sun being very hot in Africa has lead to people being of darker pigmentation to help with UV rays. Some Africans are taller because with a larger surface area, evaporation, hence cooling is better able to happen. As we get more into the temperate areas on earth, people tend to not be as dark and there is more of a mixture of "race". As we go even further north, people start to get shorter, carry weight in a different manner. Science has dictated to us that this is because it is cold, and being more compact is more efficient in conserving heat.
