Racist people are screwed.

They can't be Christian, because in heaven if God is black and there are black people in heaven, then they will opt for hell. Since hell is eternal suffering, Satan would show himself as black to them and cast them into an inferno of eternal a$$ rape by black demons and the gnashing of teeth. Therefore a racist cannot enjoy heaven. He can only suffer hell.

Just so you know, not everyone who is mentally ill rambles and talks to themselves. That is just one type of mental illness known as schizophrenia. There are people out there who are mentally ill and you would NEVER know it.
What about the narcissists, or the sociopaths? Those are some of the most intelligent and cunning people. I'm not flaming your post or anything, I'm just saying that when the term "mentally ill" comes up, people have a tendency to automatically conjure up images of mumbling schizos. That is not necessarily the case.
There is a wide spectrum of mental illnesses in this world and the type that makes people talk to themselves is just one of many.
That's true. We also have different intensities of multiple personality disorders in which a person shifts from one personality to another. You might even wind up marrying one of these personalities thinking it's the whole package as one woman did and found out when it find out when it's too late.

Racism is a tribal instinct in humans. Our ancestors were tribal and that is why we are only comfortable to those who act and look similar to us.

Everyone is a racist to some degree.

Racism can also be divisive and can weaken a nation by causing internal discord. Example? Spain ruined itself by expelling the Jews and Moors that were the backbone of her economy..

I know that the motives of the Spaniards were initially religious and not racist.

You are very much correct. During the Muslim conquest of Iberia, the Moorish rulers allowed religious freedom, which led Christians, Muslisms and Jews work side-by-side exchanging ideas. You look at the Catholic Churches in Spain, you can clearly see the Arabic influence on the architecture. Science and infrastructure were all contributed by the three religions.

That's god - satan's immaculate deception, governing oppressive dis ease (mental illness).

I AM YHVH DEITY THE FARTHER CIPHER 888 YHVH is pronounced YA. Thank YHVH, YHVH welcome, YHVH bless, YHVH way. There is no substitute.

YHVH suspends mercy in response to god (government of deceivers) suspension of inalienable rights (life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness) in the American Holocaust (moral corruption - fraud - terminal injustice - economic oppression - murderbyproxy - population control - death fix it>deficit<). National goal accomplished reduce government (we the people) reduce government spending (no justice, no liabilities).

don't believe it and never have. Otherwise explain the racism many bm have against bw? Racism is a choice...most of it is instinct but some have a hard time getting past a perceived threat to the point they cant function thus rendering them irrational and racist.

I'm surrounded by people who love jigs, or at least would never admit they hate them, I only began hating them after being exposed to TNB firsthand, getting rid of the TV is another good way to forget the way the media wants you to think about "black people".

When racism leads one to become paranoid, delusional, and obsessive to the point where their behavior makes them a danger to others or to themselves, then it indeed is a mental illness. When narcissism, self absorption, and socio-pathic behavior are masked through racist outbursts, then there indeed should be a cause for psychological intervention.

ultimately, racism can be considered a "choice" but it can deffinitely be instilled in children...and as adults, if they do not totally adhere to the racism progammed into them as children, they will still have some residue or in simpler terms, racist thoughts, views, opinions and actions.

but even if children are not programmed from childhood to be racist buy their parents, outside socialization can program them to become racist.
