What's the difference between the Holocaust, the Zoot Suit Riots, and Blackface

What's the difference between the Holocaust, the Zoot Suit Riots, and Blackface?

I would say there isn't too much of a difference between them. They were all points in our human, specifically western, history that were charged with ethnocentric xenophobic hateful bigotry.

The holocaust was an attempted genocide of a significant segment of the European population.

The Zoot Suit Riots were a series of riots that broke out due to differences amongst Amerikan youth, sailors, and marines.

Blackface is an offensive stereotyped caricature of African Americans.

I ask again. What's the difference between the Holocaust, the Zoot Suit Riots, and Blackface?

Nothing. There is no difference. The type of thinking that led to these events is such that

the human race is actually split into various races of varying degrees of genetic advancement

That type of thinking is wrong.

That type of thinking leads to ethnocentrism.

That type of thinking leads to xenophobia.

That type of thinking leads to hate.

That type of thinking leads to bigotry.

That type of thinking, needs to stop.

Movie review: The American

This film had everything I like.


Italy.


Action.


Excitement.


Despair.


Stylish dinner jackets.


George Clooney. Seriously George Clooney plays this type of character very well. I cried my heart out at the end of the film.


The thing that I liked most about this film was that it is a tragedy. It follows the American and tells a story of his life and how tragic lonely it is; how a person like him can never be happy, no matter how hard he wants happiness or friendship.


This is a depressing film and I loved it, but I like depressing films. I won't give away any more of the plot but I suggest that you watch it.


It is one of my favorite films and I implore you to consider viewing it.

Movie Review: The Italian Job


The Italian Job is a fun film. I think that whole reason that I like this film is because they race mini-coopers. If you like mini coopers then check this film out.


Oh and also if you are a fan of Mark Wahlberg then you will probably like this movie.
