[faldec] I recently wrote a paper for an English class. In it I was discussing racism in America, a subject I particularly dislike. It occurred to me writing the paper that it is all related to choice and that many people would choose the relatively “easier” path of sticking with other fragments that are at least superficially the same then to build relationships with those who are different. Again, all being chosen. What is your view on this?

[NOTE FROM TROY: In response to the first question, as a channel, a short-circuit of sorts occurred and Michael began expounding in great detail about the variations and definitions of “cadence,” rather than directly answering the posed question. This transcript reflects the edited, direct answer.]
[M Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. You may begin with your questions, if you have any.
[kittlekats41] I would like to know if fragments who are in the same entity and share all of the same casting information except are on three different ‘sides’ have any special connection or relationship, and how that might manifest?

[M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here.
We understand the topic tonight to be “Racism.”
We can begin by stating that we believe Racism, as it is understood, is simply a subcategory of a larger categorical rejection of, abuse of, neglect of, or dismissal of a particular group. We believe Racism is included along with Sexism, Species-ism, and other minor “-isms” within the larger context of “Classism.” Classism exists across the board, so to speak, and is included even within the sub-groups who claim to be victims of any particular “-ism.”

[MaryBV] How much of racism is based on bad past life experiences with or as part of a culture/people?
[M_Entity] We would have to say that ANTI-racism is more indicative of past life experiences with or as part of a culture/people. Racism in its truest form is based in LACK of experiences.
