    Language is a funny thing. Of course, there's also a difference between speaking of a group generally and addressing an individual person in this way.

    "White people" doesn't really take that much longer to type than "whites". "Whites" is a washing load, not a description of people. :)

    I've never heard of anything like this in the WTS for a very very long time... where is this happening and when did it happen? The WTS used to believe whites were superior way back in Russels time, but I have not seen this since, with the exception of a few individual racist JWs.

    It is difficult for me to get angry at being called "white".

    If I were lumped into a group called "talls" I might find it clever.

    But, if you refer to me as a Senior Citizen (I'm 57) I'll punch out yer lights fer sure!

    So, what do we learn from this?

    I enjoy being white. I enjoy being tall. I hate being old.

    I'm only vulnerable where I'm insecure.

    People being called "shorts"... back onto washing/clothes now. :)

    /definitely a short.

    I have encountered racism in the borg, but nothing of that extreme nature. The mind control is intense enough to erase or suppress those kinds of feelings. "If your money is green we'll take it."

    I agree that it must have just been two crazy people.

    JW's are very multi-cultural. Homophobic and sexist? Absolutely. But racist? I've never seen that.

    3rd generation borg once removed...I have never ever even seen something close to racisim. My local congregations are 80% African American. My best friend gowing up in the borg is African American. I think this poster is trolling.

    Clearly this bigot is going back to "old light":

    *** The Golden Age, July 24, 1929, p. 702 ***
    Question: Is there anything in the Bible that reveals the origin of the Negro? Answer: It is generally believed that the curse which Noah pronounced upon Canaan was the origin of the Black race. Certain it is that when Noah said, ?Cursed be Canaan, a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren,? he pictured the future of the Colored race. They have been and are a race of servants, but now in the dawn of the twentieth century, we are all coming to see this matter of service in its true light and to find that the only real joy in life is in serving others; not bossing them. There is no servant in the world as good as a good Colored servant, and the joy that he gets from rendering faithful service is one of the purest joys there is in the world.

    I just cannot believe this. I grew up in org. They love to place mags and start studies with anyone. I think maybe they truly did not have another magazine. Never saw racism practiced in my 33 years in---not as a group at all!
