Intolerable intolerance

I'd like to say when the elder generation dies off the worst of our current racist society will be over, but hate and ignorance tends to breed hate, sullying the water so this notion is simply another fairy tail the offended tell themselves.

The conceptions of our fathers are only distinguished from our own by choice. Change needs a catalyst else the course remains steady. Some may believe that it is currently socially unacceptable to belittle another race, unfortunately theory is not always what prevails in practice and they would be very mistaken in this assumption.

We are the youth of the nation with the means to stamp out such trivial ideologies, yet remain powerless in our current divided state. War once brought the youths voices together echoing their contempt throughout the land. Our generation has faced its wars, yet we as a whole remained silent.

Our silence is deafening, society has desensitised us. Thus i fear there is nothing that can awaken our outrage. As long as intolerance is tolerated, as long as injustice is ignored, the plights of the nameless shall go unheard.

Till next we meet,

    I'd get rid of them wendy, but i don't really care :) - besides he (hmm assumption) doesn't seem to be too bright :) as evident in his inability to ridicule.

    Ok so i think i'll actually comment about the blog.

    The ideological hegemony of society is to accept everybody, but like you said, society doesn't always practice what is on paper.

    But i think that we can lead by example, few people can make a difference. Look at Gandi (or however his name is spelt). Our generation does not have to grow into a bunch of racist bigots. Our silence if deafening, but if you make a loud enough noise, changes can be made. Don't fear that injustice will be ignored, if there are enough people like you to point out the narrow-mindedness of society, there is hope...
