DAILYKENN.com -- Confession is good for the soul. It's also a preferred thought reform technique.
Communist authorities in 1950s China would force people to confess their sins against the state. Forced confessions would continue for months; even years — until they believed their confessions.
Now comes National Geographic, confessing it's past perceptions of various races.
Racism — disliking a person or group due to their race — is immoral and illogical. However, acknowledging racial characteristics — including appearance, aptitude, and intelligence — does not constitute racism.
Social engineers are damned determine to create a milieu that accommodates a global mindset. To that end they are convincing us that human variations including gender and race are mere social constructs. Those of us who prefer to view the world through an honest and accurate perspective will be stigmatized as racists and sexists until we confess our sins and adopt the illusion as reality.

US magazine National Geographic says its past coverage of people around the world was racist.
It ignored non-white Americans and showed different groups as exotic or savage, propagating "every type of cliché", editor Susan Goldberg said.
The magazine's April edition is dedicated to race and it has asked a historian to look at past issues.
It decided to re-examine its coverage to mark 50 years since civil rights leader Martin Luther King was murdered.
"Let's confront today's shameful use of racism as a political strategy and prove we are better than this," Ms Goldberg wrote in an editorial entitled "For Decades, Our Coverage Was Racist".
