I hate us-versus them mentalities. That’s how all of this racism crap started in the first place. Please stop perpetuating it.

2) Us versus Them mentalities is a psychological and anthropological phoenomenon that tends to be part of a bigger problem of treating people maliciously, I.E. discarding their thoughts and feelings and the sovereignty of their person for your own interests. It has nothing to do with the advent of slavery in the Americas, because it far predates it. In fact, it’s at the root of many conflicts
DON’T BE A DICK
