I see this word thrown around a lot,and I mean A LOT! You can’t disagree with anything without someone yelling that you’re a racist. What exactly is racism? Here is the actual definition:
the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.
- prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.
So that seems pretty cut and dried, right? Yet, the word racist is thrown at anyone who disagrees with someone else. While the people disagreeing might be from different races, I haven’t found this always the case, and most of the time, the disagreement has nothing to do with race. So why is it used? Because it is a hot button issue, politically correctness has run a muck as well as most people being too stupid to realize they are using the word wrong.
So whenever racism is thrown out, it is basically to cover up the fact that the person using it is too stupid to come up with a valid argument. You see, I don’t have anything against all the different races out there. We’re all on this planet, and we’re all human beings. What I have a problem with is the apparent and rampant stupidity that plagues many of the people on this planet of ours. I am not a racist, but I guess you can call me a smartist. While there is an urban definition meaning a conservative artist, here is my definition of the word:
the belief that some members of the human race possess stupid characteristics or inabilities specific to idiots, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior to a smarter class of humans.
- prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a lesser intelligence based on the belief that one’s own intelligence is superior.
Some may say that is the same as elitist, but I’m not an elitist. I’m not a snob who thinks I’m better than most everyone. I just know that I’m smarter than an alarming and increasing number of people who don’t have two brain cells to rub together. I realized the other day that 100 IQ is the average intelligence for a person. While that may seem like a great number to be, you have to realize that if that is the average, there is a huge percentage of people who are less. If the max IQ someone could have is 120, then it would make sense that no one would be dumber than 80. I can’t quite recall from the movie Forrest Gump, but I seem to recall the level of mental retardation drops below 75. That’s only 5 below what many “functional” and voting adults have.
But the highest IQ isn’t only 120. My own IQ was tested in the mid 130’s, and I think my sister was 140. IQ can go way above 150. So if the average is 100, do the math on that one (if you can). I don’t think they even test for IQ anymore, since we’ve now moved into a society that doesn’t think it’s fair to point out that some children are not as smart as others. We’re supposed to treat them all the same and not fail any of them. It can’t just be me who disagrees with this? I for one don’t want to have a doctor who barely passed his medical exams. I want only a doctor who got A’s on his exams. Anything less than that is unacceptable. To say that stupid people should be able to do anything that smart people can is ridiculous, not to mention dangerous. They can’t do everything that smart people can do, but I guess you have to be smart to understand that. Unfortunately, I think the stupid people are quickly overtaking the smart people, and they’re being elected into office. I don’t doubt these people are the teachers and lawyers, though I can only imagine how they made it through school. Everything has to be dumbed down, so everyone can pass. That concept terrifies me, and it will eventually cause our society to crumble.
Ever see the movie idiocracy? While the majority of that movie was stupid, the beginning of it was brilliant in its depiction of what will happen when stupid people breed faster than smart people. Actually, it’s already beginning to happen.
