I can tell you right now that another racist system would come into power. Possibly racist to a different people, like in South Africa. Racism is something that’s learned, not just enforced. But that was never my point. My point was always the definition of racism, not its causes and effects.
And all sorts of things ARE considered racism. You’re the one denying that. Not me. It would exist if no one was enforcing it because racism is a BELIEF. Racial prejudice is the action. People could still BE racist, even if they weren’t allowed to DO racist things. I mean, that’s what’s happening with the white supremacists all over the world right now. Even when there are systems in place actively forcing them to NOT be racist, they still are. People are arguing for ‘free speech’ in the right-wing circles right now because they hate the fact that they are actively barred from behaving in a racist manner.
Yes, there would be. And prejudice that relates to race will still be called racism then. Just like it is now.
Yes, yes there would be. They’re ideas, not systems after all. Ideas survive. How else would communism have survived in the US after the Red Scare when anyone known to be a communist was purged? How else would Nazism have survived after most known Nazis were executed? Because ideas persist. As you said, there would always be prejudice because people don’t get along. Some of that prejudice will always be about skin colour unless we educate people.
I hope you’ll eventually look back and see that you were having an argument with me that I wasn’t having. I hope you go back and realise I kept quoting you so that I could respond to individual parts of your argument, whilst you just assumed what I was saying without actually reading it properly and then made a completely irrelevant argument. I hope you realise that not all racism has to be systemic for systematic racism to be a thing.
I hope eventually you learn.
