My attitude to peace is rather based on the Burmese definition of peace - it really means removing all the negative factors that destroy peace in this world. So peace does not mean just putting an end to violence or to war, but to all other factors that threaten peace, such as Discrimination, such as inequality, poverty.
Racism cannot be cured solely by attacking some of the results it produces, like Discrimination in housing or in education.
Negroes who have been so long inconvenienced and denied opportunities for development are naturally afraid of anything that sounds like Discrimination.
Technology, while adding daily to our physical ease, throws dailyanother loop of fine wire around our souls. It contributes hugely to our mobility, which we must not confuse with freedom. The extensions of our senses, which we find so fascinating, are not adding to the Discrimination of our minds, since we need increasingly to take the reading of a needle on a dial to discover whether we think something isgood or bad, or right or wrong.
I guess the clarification I should make here is that Japan is as potentially racist as anywhere else, but for a developed country, the legal and social protections and recourses afforded to people of differences are lacking comparatively. Racial Discrimination is still not illegal in Japan, and this is something the Japanese government promised to fix when it signed the UN Convention on it in 1995. In short, Japan is not an outlier in terms of racism, but it is in terms of protections against it.debito arudou

We have a lot more work to do in our common struggle against bigotry and Discrimination. I say "common struggle" because I believe very strongly that all forms of bigotry and Discrimination are equally wrong and should be opposed by right-thinking Americans everywhere. Freedom from Discrimination based on sexual orientation is surely a fundamental human right in any great democracy, as much as freedom from racial, religious, gender, or ethnic Discrimination.coretta scott king

We have restricted humans from giving ‘free’ food to bears and dolphins because we know that such feeding would make them dependent and lead to their extinction. But when it comes to our own species, we have difficulty seeing the connection between short-term kindness and long-term cruelty; we give women money to have more children, making them more dependent with each child and discouraging them from developing the tools to fend for themselves. The real Discrimination against women, then, is ‘free feeding’.warren farrell
Our focus on Discrimination against women during the past 30 years has blinded us to opportunities for women.warren farrell
The money men make from their willingness to work the least desirable hours is not a sign of Discrimination against women, but a sign of the willingness of mostly married men to lose sleep to support the family as their wife loses sleep to feed the child. A willingness to do the uncomfortable shifts is one reason married men earn more than twice what never-married men earn. Men's contribution, made at night, need not be lost in the dark.warren farrell

A fine conscience is more concerned with essentials; its triumphs are more perfect, if less profitable, in a worldly sense.
I think it should be enough to simply state: all genital mutilation is wrong. I don’t discriminate between which gender should suffer genital mutilation, and which shouldn’t – that very distinction, right there, is the precise definition of sexual Discrimination.
Fascism was part of the absolute evil. (...) We have to denounce the ashaming pages in the history of our past. (...) There included all the pages related to the Discrimination and the persecution of jews and, more in general, of minoritires.
