In a thread about a controversial Intel ad (featuring black sprinters “bowing” to a white office worker), Walloon argued that noticing racism perpetuates its existence, and Derleth asserted that it’s possible to erase history, and offered the British and Norwegians as an example of grudges no longer being held.
What’s the tipping point?
Why are the Sunnis and Shi’ites, Jews and Arabs, Serbs and Croats, Protestants and Catholics, and American blacks and whites seemingly locked in an eternity of conflict while other opposing factions make peace and move on?
Is it possible to “erase” history?
Or does one group just beat the tar out of another until all opposition ceases?
