Relax, Jerrybro, it's just a flame. It can't touch your
soul. No hard feelings. It's just that you should be aware of
the following:

- Racism abounds in this country (and elsewhere, but I live
in the US).

- It has caused enormous damage to countless innocent human

- The problems engendered in large measure by this racism,
which include pernicious poverty, have resulted in social
problems that people now associate with certain races, when
in fact it is the poverty, among other social factors, that
is really at the root of the problem.

- The Bell Curve is a glaring example of the most despicable,
psuedoscience: eugenics. It's sole purpose is to encourage
people in their intrinsically racist inclinations.

When you make statements that can be construed as support
for racist agendas, you set yourself up to be attacked by
the many people who have observed the effects of racism down
through history (eg, the Holocaust) and take these issues
very seriously.
