    They also accuse people of racism and then say that race doesn’t exist

    • Ronnie Swoleman

      They’re not really thinking about what they’re saying.

    • American Apartheid

      you’re actually medically stupid if you think that statement makes any sense at all.

        Nice flag you got there commie

      Witch burnings happened. That doesn´t necesarily mean witches really existed.

      Some of the most horrible cases of racism in action, like the genocide in Rwanda and the various atrocities in ex-Yugoslavia, actually were carried out between groups that were not just “racially” but even culturally close to each other. In Japan there were (are still to some degree) a severly discriminated group called burrakumin who were, basically, just Japanese. They didn´t have a different ethnic background or a different religion or anything, anthropologists aren´t even clear on how they came to be seen as a distinct group.
      Racism is socio-psychological phenomenon, and often doesn´t make much sense, but that is little help to the people that fall victim to it.

    I guess “Race is a social construct, therefore we need Racial diversity in our society where race is a social construct.” Is too hard to grasp?

    • James

      That’s not what people mean when they argue for racial diversity though.

      • SK9: Strick-9

        Ok everyone. James has spoken. The case is now closed. LOL!!

      But if it doesn’t matter, shouldn’t matter then though, right?
      Doesn’t matter anyway, the only people who think things that stupid are white liberals.

    • Francesco

      If races don’t exist what’s the point of having different races coexist? An all-white society should be identical to a mixed or all-black society, so there’s no meaning in actively trying to make a society racially diverse.

      • SK9: Strick-9

        Races do exist *Socially *. They dont exist scientifically in any significant degree.

        We are all homo sapiens.

        • Blarg Blarg

          You couldn’t be more wrong. Your world view destroys, not uplifts or anything.

        • Stduhpf duh

          Homo sapiens is a species, not a race.

      If race is a social construct, distinguishing between races is not possible to do in the same manner as, say, distinguishing between life and death, which is necessary to enforce murder laws, or really any custom that revolves around an objective distinction. Thus setting any policies or making any sort of moral argument on a strictly social distinction immediately fail, as, by definition, they can’t defeat the question, “Why not change society so that the distinction doesn’t even exist? Why improve the ‘diversity’ of this distinction, rather than simply, as a society, choosing to ignore the distinction, thus causing it to cease to exist, since society chooses what social distinctions are made?”

      However, that question isn’t even needed to defeat the conclusion, since the logic is invalid, as it’s in the form:

      1. All A is (B with respect to C).
      2. Therefore ((D with respect to A) with respect to C) is “good”.

      Where A is “Race”, B is “Social Construct”, C is “Our Society”, and D is “Diversity”. There is no known set of semantics, formal nor otherwise, propositional nor first-order, where statement 2 follows from statement 1.

      Stone’s implication in the comic is that there exists no such semantics, since they couldn’t possibly be consistent.

      • SK9: Strick-9

        Stone is a racist and a anti-semite. That alone is reason for societies (none of which are objectively perfect) to bring as much diversity as possible to the table to do away with racism and antisemitism as much as possible.

        We’re striving for a better world and not a utopia.

          Stone is free to hold whatever beliefs he chooses, as are you. You aren’t the arbiter of morality and you don’t have any special knowledge.

        • Paul Mememan

          But proximity to diversity causes racism and anti-semitism and thus under your own moral logic it is bad.

        • Blarg Blarg

          The amount of death and destruction evil clowns like you have perpetrated across the world is immeasurable.

          You don’t deserve your “utopia”; you deserve death.

    • xvtc

      We don’t need diversity.
