The Human Race
Posted by ahimsa32fa at 02/06/2015
"Racism" is the belief in the superiority of one "race" over another, and the ensuing "right" to dominate and exploit the "inferior" race.
But the word "race" is also used in reference to the "human race". In this context, what shall we say of "human racism"?
Only by human measurement are humans "superior" to all other life forms. The irrational egotism of human "superiority" becomes all too clear when we remember that we are the only species that knowingly pollutes and destroys its own environment, causes its own disease, and has become an enemy to all other living things.
