Is there nothing to see here? Really?
One might have thought that there was nothing much left of racism in America until recently. Racism is a very primitive impulse, at one time in our distant past, it was beneficial to distrust those not from your "tribe." And while most of us have evolved to see the foolishness in that kind of thinking in modern society, there are still plenty of us who operate from the primitive parts of our brains. This kind of grunting, chest-beating throwback to our hairier ancestors rises and falls throughout history and so I suspect that this current wave, too, shall pass. Let's hope no serious casualties result in the meantime.
I often wish that "intelligent design" were true, so that our species might behave more intelligently.
This cartoon has nothing to do with racism, of course, it's just been on my mind lately. Tomorrow, a funnier post.
