All white people are racist. America is racist. To deny this isn’t just racist, it’s irrational. https://t.co/2K2Kj9fnh0

I personally believe we are all racist, classist and *bigoted* to some extent.
It is our evolutionary makeup that prefers our *tiny* tribe to the whole mess of humanity and only something as powerful as religious belief binds us into a larger consciousness.
The West has been secular for a good century (maybe even longer) and the Western left has adopted a curious mix of neo-Puritanism and Platonism.
They want straight white men to constantly purge and guard their inner thoughts against any type of “ism.”
Thankfully our Brown pallour acts as a sort of shield since frankly the larger society isn’t particularly interested in what we have to say and furthermore we can’t be accused of privilege yet.
I see Western civ consuming itself over absurdities (even now a centre-right individuals knows how to police one’s thoughts on certain topics) while the Rest begin their long march onward and upward.
While angry and vocal Muslim minorities mingle with these left reaction; the Eastern powers (Chindia) are only growing by the day.
It may be small, it may be imperceptible leaps but the day will come when Lewis Hamilton will have his visa revoked for making such comments about India’s poverty.
China has already abandoned Western ideological scaffolding and gone back to some hybridised Confucian ideal of government.
It will only be a matter of time when India sheds so much of this false & imported secularism and adopt a Hindu framework of tolerance.
India’s majority greviance is that the Hindu majority are constantly making concessions to a Muslim minority while across the border Pakistan is reshaping itself. 5 more years of Modi and the Overton window will shift where Rahul Gandhi will have to cast himself a pukka and proper Hindu instead of some Nehruvian secularist/socialist.
