The contempt you feel for this question is a tiny fraction of how you should feel about sexism and racism.
i have a simple test to see if you're a sexist:

one male and one female live together under 1 roof.
what is the default position of the toilet seat; up or down?

i'm on a role so in addition to thinking this test question up today, i also thought of a word that's sure to be a staple on this thread and maybe even go viral:'Gaytheistic'!

get it? i maintain that while an atheist may not always be gay, a gay will usually always be an atheist; hence - gaytheistic!

Yes they are you buffoon. All the biblical names are phrases. Emmanuel is a name. It even says so: "You will name him..."

Sure they are. You're just ignorant. One example:

Morgan Freeman.

First name, Morgan. This name is of Celtic origin, "Of the sea".

Last name, Freeman. Can you guess this one?

The song was simple to grasp.
The people on the Mountain has a "Treasure".
The People in the Valley wanted it.
The People on the Mountain said they would share the "Treasure".
The People in the Valley wanted it for themselves and murdered all the Mountain people to get it.
The "treasure" was a simple stone with the word "Peace on Earth" carved into it.
The story is played out thousands of times in thousands of places for thousands of years.
"Jesus wept."
Interpretation is all based on perception...

A group of people called perverts...

It is done in the name of heaven/God...

They will justify it in the end...God I did what you wanted...I made those perverts feel hated...

Of course...if you are Christian...

You might feel as if the valley people took away your rights...

Some say that the one tin soldier is satan that destroyed...

Others see him as God...that rides away after he see what his people have done...

It is all perception...

On the first day God created the dog. God said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. I will give you a life span of twenty years." The dog said, "That's too long to be barking. Give me ten years and I'll give you back the other ten."
So God agreed.

On the second day God created the monkey. God said, "Entertain people, do monkey tricks and make them laugh. I'll give you a twenty-year life span." The monkey said, "Monkey tricks for twenty years? I don't think so. Dog gave you back ten, so that's what I'll do too, okay?"
And God agreed.

On the third day God created the cow. "You must go to the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves, and give milk to support the farmer. I will give you a life span of sixty years."
The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. Let me have twenty and I'll give back the other forty."
And God agreed again.

On the fourth day God created man. God said, "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. I'll give you twenty years."
Man said, "What? Only twenty years? Tell you what, I'll take my twenty, and the forty the cow gave back, and the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back, that makes eighty, okay?"

Okay," said God, "You've got a deal."

So that is why the first twenty years we eat, sleep, play, and enjoy ourselves; the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family; the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren; and the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you.

I always saw the 'One Tin Soldier' as a valley man who is disgusted with the hatred of his people and rides away refusing to kill.

A conscientious objector consistent with a Vietnam Protest song.

Are you sure it's not "by the sea"? Or "fighter of the sea"?

Imagine a tribal naming system where one person in the tribe gives names to all the children born in that tribe. There would be a naming ritual after the child is born, probably with some superstitious elements.

Depending on the name given, a child might be groomed for leadership, trained as a soldier, or influenced to follow some other predetermined path.

Now imagine that there is something some parents have that the name giver wants.

Anything based on superstition, or the supernatural, or anything untestable, is easily corrupted, but the corruption is often indistinguishable from business as usual.

She was told that it was gonna happen:

Luke 1:29-32
29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 But the angel said to her,“Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”

And she was ok with it:

Luke 1:38
And Mary said,
"Behold the handmaid of the Lord;
be it unto me according to thy word."

It's hard for me to express the contempt I feel for your lack, in every way, for stating the above.
- what is "white"? What is this "group" of people?
- "what is "black"? What is this group of people?
For either character, since you're the racist, you have to present genetic arguments that link those two skin-color based divisions into biological realities that are linked to the racist claims you make.
You cannot do it, just as 18th century writers couldn't link physical traits to the "criminal races" of Italians, Irish and Jews.
And, you're a coward for not addressing a single point I raised in my previous paragraph. You couldn't speak to what I wrote for your lack - of education and ability to present your position.
You don't have one. And you're clinging to that outdated status because you have none in today's world. You wish racism were true because it would give you something over people - you don't have education, you don't have status, you don't have money. You're just barely middle class and you got there through skilled labor and that so bothers you that you need to feel better about yourself as if your innate biology gave you something over people visibly different from yourself.
There's nothing more pathetic in this world than the kind of racism you espouse, nothing more demeaning of your character.
Literally, as I wrote before, human scum wishing it were more by pushing other people down.
Well baby, the joke's on you. You can't raise yourself up by pushing others down. All you do is drown, flailing, in your own filth that way. The only way to go up is to do whatever you can, be that education, artistry, skilled labor, hard work, politics, sweat and blood, to push other people up, to find community through humanity, to find maturity in spirituality, in education, in kata - where ever you can, and help other up.
Racists, pedophiles and rapists will never understand that. And, yes, you're in those categories.
delivered with kindness, I do not know how you do it.
