Rape is an action in which there is no uncertainty as to what happened.

An accusation of racism, in a lot of cases, is based on the supposed victim's perception of an interaction with a supposed perpetrator.

If I was rude to someone of a different race, they may feel it is because of their race that I treated them poorly. In which case...racism. The truth, however, may just be because I am shy, a prick, or I don't like them for a myriad of other reasons.

If I slipped a woman a drug, and slept with her while she was passed out, there is not perception needed...that's rape. If I attack a woman from the bushes...rape, no grey area there.
so that's a yes, there are varying degrees of racism? the real kind where you meant it, and the fake kind where the person was just offended

Fucking Illuminati built them, not Egyptians

Illuminati wasn't a group until 1776. Luciferian beliefs didn't become widespread until the 1700s.
The Illuminti got some of their Luciferian beliefs from Ancient Egypt though.

I think aliens could be a reason but I also personally think that it could have been future humans that traveled back. There are photos and documentaries of hieroglyphs that look very similar to helicopters but it could just be a coincidence.

I've never really looked into the "descendants of Atlantis" though

That's what they want you to think.

That's what they want you to think.

Maybe so. I wasn't there to see it form then, I'm just being biased and going with what some historians say.

Of course it exists, but over-sensitivity to racism also exists. If you are pummeled by the belief that people are going to judge you by your race then you will actively look for racism whether it is there or not, as a way to validate your own sensitivity.

Maybe I am naive, but the majority of people out there treat each other with dignity and respect, regardless of race. On an individual basis, we move past race both internally and externally...most of the time.

Of course there is racism out there, 360 degrees of it...all races have the capability for racism and all races can be subject to racism. Whether or not you are a victim of it, however, is your choice.

And before you go nuts at that last statement, I am a Sephardi Jew, if my beard were any longer I would look like a villain from Homeland. I have experienced my share of anti-semitism and racism (even though they think I am a different race). I could have chosen to be offended by it or I could have moved on, I moved on.

Think of why I still post on these boards, an optimistic estimation would produce maaaaybe 5 people who can tolerate me...at best. You think I get that offended when someone treats me like trash? No one can offend you without your permission.
