  1. Gandhi isn’t acceptable
    Gandhi isn’t acceptable according to present PC standards, but then again, virtually no one in the past is either. The revolutionary was sensible enough to recognize human differences. Virtually no group on Earth cares much for the black race; Koreans don’t like them. Even in Africa they are hated by others of a different ethnic group. The only group in the world of which I am aware that is amicable toward the black race is the upper-middle class neo-Marxist whites of the West.

    “The Negroes’ rude ignorance has never invented any effectual weapons of defense or destruction: they appear incapable of forming any extensive plans of government or conquest: and the obvious inferiority of their mental faculties has been discovered and abused by the nations of the temperate zone.” —Edward Gibbon

  2. Indeed, blacks tend to be
    Indeed, blacks tend to be looked down upon in far Eastern countries such as China, Japan, and amongst East Indians in Trinidad & Tobago, Guyana, and Suriname. The same was true with the East Indians who went to East African countries like Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania, and also in South Africa, so it’s not too surprising that he’d come under attack by South African blacks.

    This is why the idea of multiculturalism is such a load of crap – people tend to prefer their own, even various non-white groups, and racism isn’t only a case of black versus white – nor are blacks exempt from it, either. I’m looking forward to hearing black American race hustlers like Jesse Jackson joining in denouncing Gandhi, and I also look forward to black Africans apologizing to East Indians for Idi Amin’s brutal treatment of them in, and forced expulsion from, Uganda. (I’m kidding, of course; I wouldn’t hold my breath about either of those happening… Or justice for whites in Zimbabwe, so long as Mugabe rules there…)

    And while Koreans look down on blacks as the previous poster noted, blacks in L.A. haven’t exactly treated Korean immigrants there very well, esp. in the early 1990s…

    “Racism” is universal, and seems to come natural; people tend to prefer their own kind. Mr. Kalb has ably dealt with this subject in his essays, especially here:
