Being a person that believes that most of the societal attitudes lumped together and called "racism" are natural and developed communal survival instincts, I hear the professor making valid points while Mr. Carlson is playing at political correctness.

I disagree. Substitute "black people" for "white people" in the op-ed, and you get, "Can I let my children be friends with black people?... I will teach my children to be suspicious of black people, to mistrust black people, etc."

Would a white person who wrote such a thing have a moment's rest from the "peace-mongers" of the liberal left? The same ones who vandalized Tucker Carlson's house when his wife was home alone, perhaps? What a great philosophy to buy into! Peace and love for everyone, except the ones we don't like. Carlson is not the only one playing at "political correctness".

Whether you agree or disagree, the fact remains that there are people that hate and distrust other people, and they've probably got rock-solid reasons for feeling that way.

People, in my memory, have always conflated Prejudice with Racist. It is not. If one is not taking a close look at anybody they want to invite into their circle of friends and associates there is a chance that relationship could become toxic or even dangerous. This is especially true of strangers. One need not be rude or avoid new people, places, and things to evaluate such things. I'm reminded of Jeff Cooper's Color Code.

Quoted from FWeidner (because I can't figure out how to multi-quote): Whether you agree or disagree, the fact remains that there are people that hate and distrust other people, and they've probably got rock-solid reasons for feeling that way.

I agree with that completely; that is not racism unless you say, "all blacks, all whites, all American Indians, etc." For instance, Muslims choose to follow a religion that promotes violence against Christians. Not all Muslims are Jihadists, I am told, but I do justifiably distrust them all because of the choices they make or the alliances they choose. I do not believe that is racism, by current social or legal definitions.

I agree with this too, in concept. You have every right (and indeed need) to evaluate the people that you associate with, or even come into contact with on a casual basis. But to teach your children to distrust or dislike someone solely because of their race is, by definition, racist. Racism is a form of prejudice, but not all prejudice is racism. For example, if I say, "I distrust all people from Washington State because they're all liberals and vote in a way that I feel infringes my Constitutional right", to me that is prejudicial, but certainly not racist. (And no, Blaine, I'm not picking specifically on you, because unfortunately my home state of Virginia did the very same thing in this election.) A certain percentage of people from Washington state are conservative, freedom-loving folks, but they get painted with the same brush as the groups from the liberal, populated areas.

I guess what really frustrates me most about this whole thing is the double-standard approach the liberals take; if "we" do it we are racists, but if "they" do it it is because they are enlightened, smarter, or whatever. I distrust liberals, and am certainly prejudiced against them, but hardly consider myself a racist. I like, and dislike, individuals of every race I've been exposed to for any length of time.
