Your eloquence is astonishing. Yes let's promote tolerance through the means of intolerance! I disagree with your views therefore I'm going to beat you senseless! I wonder when you're going to start going around beating up all those racists in the world. Of course this just crusade will probably take you into almost everyone's home. Hell you'll probably find you're beating yourself too.
I find it curious how a lot of white Americans seem to feel the need to make up for their vicious racist past by becoming zealots against racism. It's just like how people can go OTT with passionately hating and vilifying paedophiles to make up for the fact that they don't care about their children enough. Or people becoming pacifist socialists to make up for the fact that their country was an imperial empire stretching the globe in the past. It's quite a narrow viewpoint, and just shows that people will just follow what is fashionable, often to make up for their insecurities.
Most people don't consider that humans are innately racist to a large degree, depending on their upbringing (if you were immersed in a multi-racial environment as a kid then you're more accepting of other races). But its human nature to be innately distrustful of people who don't look similar to yourself. This cracked article sums it up pretty well, showing the hypocritical fallacies that people think.
What am I getting at here? I'm saying that intolerance is a contradictory way of promoting tolerance. You don't beat someone senseless just because they have a different opinion to you. That's the hypocrisy that starts up persecutory movements. Yes racism can often enter the realm of dangerous ignorance, and its important to remove that dangerous ignorance through edification. But unless we have widespread integration and multicultural societies, then racism will remain just another part of life and human nature.
Also Mississippi burning was a good film in the beginning, but then towards the end it didn't seem to really go anywhere. It tried to ride the racist wave without adding in much substance. American History X is a much superior film.
