Origins of racism

To the editor:

In the current highly charged microphones, videos, photos and pages of the news media pundits, racism seems to be playing or should I say selling very well. It seems to me that our emotions are being played so that they can sell their "news" to us. Politicians seem to be very willing to accompany the media's pied pipers with calls for legislation and changes in law. Where did racism begin? How can it be eradicated?

The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life (yes, that is the complete title as originally penned by Darwin) sheds light on the answers to these questions. You see, if you believe in evolution as it is commonly understood, it is reasonable to conclude there are evolutionary changes to mankind which make different races and that these different races have more or less helpful variations (favoured races) to ensure their survival.

My observations are that the "favoured race" at any given time is nothing more than the people group that has the best ability to wage war and/or dominate another people group.

A Biblical worldview tells us that Eve became the mother of ALL the living (human race). Men are equal in worth and equal in God's eyes of love. There is only the human race, not races of men. Only a Biblical worldview will destroy the evil of racism.
