Why we hate Jews, Black, Muslims...

Okay, now when I say we, I mean the general public. But wait! Am I any less skeptical about generations of prejudice than the next guy? I mean, let’s be real here, the Egyptians hated the Jews as far back as Moses leading the persecuted sect to the promised land. Pre-Christian anti-Judaism in Ancient Greece […]

Genocide...and other fun facts

DEFINITION: Genocide, the deliberate and systematic destruction of a group of people because of their ethnicity, nationality, religion, or race. Actually as soon as modern homo sapiens discovered the last conclave of Neanderthals, it has been survival of the fittest, or at least those with more and better weapons. The recent cries of the Israel-Hamas […]
