We want to put the issue to rest, settle it once and for all. We have to admit, we are not racists, we are behaviorists. A behaviorist is a person who believes in behaviorism. See the definition below.
The theory or doctrine that human or animal psychology can be accurately
Studied only through the
examination and analysis of objectively
observable and quantifiable behavioral events, in contrast with
subjective mental states.
It is true, there are racists, but to call every behaviorist a racist is an indication of race baiting by those who have an ulterior motive. Americans are sick and tired of the characterization of an incident as based on race when an individual’s behavior was the precipitating trigger. It is only natural if a person acts like a loony; they are going to be treated like a loony; something that escapes the racist bomb thrower.
To set the record straight it is obvious that the race baiting industry without question pulls the race card from their stacked deck whenever the opportunity arises. However, they have it all wrong; the accused racists are in actuality behaviorists
History is replete with examples giving prominence to individual behavior which clearly manifest malevolent intentions. From prior incidents we form opinions on what to expect in certain situations; this is only natural. A vigilant person is by nature expected to not only be aware, but expected to defend him/her against outside threats. A person walking through a snake pit, is he/she not in fear of being bitten? It makes no difference of the snakes color, but it is their behavior that sets in motion a response. This is not to say that there aren’t racists of all colors. And it becomes particularly disturbing when law enforcement officers treat people of color differently. So there you have the truth.
