He talked about being prejudiced because he is from Detroit. Why do you think he could get such treatment, ds?

When you are the victim of prejudice, one reaction is to sooth your injured pride by becoming prejudiced. I was unaware Magic had a problem in that area though. If so, he hides it well.

Are you being prejudice because you were Detroiter? Or came from around community of ethnic background that endured the absolute type of slavery and persecution in the U.S?

I never experienced it. I was on friendly terms, racially speaking. But police were definitely known as prejudiced and aggressive when Magic was a boy. There were extremely violent riots in downtown Detroit in 1967 and '68. Depends on the neighborhoods you grew up in. These were the years of Motown, which appealed to all races. It's said that the Detroit Tigers winning the Pennant, and then the World Series helped calm things down. The Tigers are immensely popular across racial lines, and sports is the best integrator.

There were LOTS of well-paying jobs in the automobile industry, so unemployment wasn't a big issue. You had to be able to dance, and to style, if you wanted to be "with it".

Re: A Discussion Thread About Racism in America

Unfortunately, millions of people believe in racism, as well in radical religion, communism and the paranormal like UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Personally, I don't believe in racism, communism and radical religion. I have an interest in the UFO phenomena and of course, astrology, but taken with a grain of salt. We shouldn't judge people really by their sun sign like with skin color, we need to value people as equals regardless of how they look or how they (or in this case, when they) were born.

Re: A Discussion Thread About Racism in America

For a society to evolve itself away from racism it must from my perspective go/dive into it and see what it is really about in the first place.
Differences in genetics exists between different groups of people because they/we have different genetic ancestors but what unites all groups of people as one is our equal value as human beings with souls in my opinion.

The value system that this world have perpetrated is from my understanding either putting/valuing differences between people as more important than the equal value of all human beings with souls, or creating these completely totalitarian so called equal systems where the truth of our differences are not allowed to exist in the "name of equality". "Equality" here is Not the same as equal value but a distortion of it as it it does not respect the value of a human being as a whole from my viewpoint.

The solution is from my perspective to accept the truth of our differences but always keep the fundamental value of all human beings with souls equal value as the More important value but again Never deny the truth of our differences, but rather like I said accept them and/or embrace them.

Re: A Discussion Thread About Racism in America

Not only we have huge racial, gender and class disparities; generational as well are very wide and striking. Millennials born between 1981-96 and similarly, Gen X born from 1965-80 are in great odds vs. Boomers born between 1949-64 and Peakers 1933-48. The average annual net worth for Millennials are $8,000 and half of generation X'ers are out of their parents homes. Boomers have 80% of the total national wealth of any generations with 5% for the Peakers. And I'm concerned for the Zoomers or gen Z born in the period 1997-2008 with the gen Alpha 2009-19 is something I have to wait and see. For the boomers to have most of the concentrated power in politics, economics, society and culture vs. a larger generation not on power like the millennials is going to be a great clash.
