Racism is Contagious

Racism is not as pretty as these flowers


Contagious definition, capable of being transmitted by bodily contact with an infected person or object

Racism definition, a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human racial groups determine cultural or individual achievement


Communicable diseases are caused by pathogens passed from one human to another. Pathogens are viral, bacterial, parasitic and fungal. If that be true, then I suspect racism is a communicable disease.  Let’s take a look as some other communicable diseases:

  1. Common Cold – you have it, you sneeze, touch the door knob or the well-known infectious location – the elementary classroom;
  2. Gastroenteritis – spread by contact, sharing food, using contaminated utensils;
  3. Strep Throat – A streptococci bacteria targeted to teens, by sneezing, coughing or shaking hands;
  4. Fifth Disease – spreads easily because it’s contagious before one has symptoms via direct contact with nasal and throat discharge;
  5. Gonorrhea – a sexually transmitted disease
  6. Racism –  caused by lack of understanding, breeding, and family belief systems.  This disease is spread via contact with a racist, reading about a racism and racists, teens are highly susceptible to this disease because of their age and lack of understanding and wisdom, it can be shared at the dinner table, on the bus, plane, and railways.  Racism easily spreads through the eyes and ears via the following:

I read a post a few minutes ago, subject matter: President Obama chose to go to his daughter’s graduation instead of going to Muhammad Ali’s funeral.  Someone replied, “Why would anyone care?” Another poster replied, “…because he’s black…”  You have got to be kidding me! Racism has become contagious when an issue between two different races defaults to “because they are _____________.”

    Also, *do* eat your own homemade cookie dough. DO NOT eat raw prepackaged cookie dough. The difference is taking a chance that one of your two freshly cracked raw eggs is bad vs. one of the thousand eggs in an industrial batch that was mixed weeks (months?) ago was bad.There are similar reasons to wash your own lettuce rather than take a chance on contamination of an entire vat of prewashed stuff bound for the nitrogen packs.Come to think of it, the more of your own food you prepare, the better.
