My interpretation of the first few days of Twitch Plays Pokemon Crystal.
YOU ARE THE HERO GOTHAM DESERVES
I’M CRYING BECAUSE OF THAT CAPTION
Let’s make this clear:
Science has a lot of terminology that only applies in the field.
Science has a lot of terminology that mean something different when not talking about that particular science.
Each field of science has its own special terms.
If you try and apply the in-field science definition outside of the field…
You will look absolutely ridiculous.
Sociology is a science. It is the scientific study of of human interactions and societies.
Terms in Sociology are applied to whole societies.
Racism, when used by some sociologists, means the acts of an entire society (AKA institutional racism). Not even every professor in the field of sociology believes in this as the definition of word.
But outside of the science field. Racism can be individual.
Anyone can be racist against any race.
Outside of sociology, Racism is the belief that humans are separated into races and that some races are inherently more superior or inferior than others and/or the hatred, dislike, dehumanization, or mistreatment of a person(s) by another person(s) on the basis of race.
Is institutional racism more damaging to people and society than individual racism? Yes.
Does this mean individual racism should be ignored? No.
But if you are going to fight against institutional racism, you should not allow individual racism to grow. That is like not treating an infection because you are doing chemotherapy.
