No, we are not racist!

 

The other day, I was inflicting some light-hearted satirical wounds upon our resident muslim-hating “Jude” (a German dictionary comes handy); which may have unintentionally offended some of our friendly chosen-people and inheritors-of-earth.

 

In that case, I should say: Good!

 

About time that the bunch of you selfish, arrogant, pompous SOBs feel how your brother and sister Shiite, Islamist, fascist and communist must have felt under my kind treatment for the past 4 years.

 

Nonetheless, I must set the record straight … I am not racist!

 

I’m just a typical Persian (whatever the fuck it means these days), and naturally very proud of our great imperial heritage (longest unbroken record of pillaging weaker people).

 

Naturally, I was born and raised in North Tehran, where all the other cool Persians have always lived … since time immemorial. But, I always have been very friendly towards our dumb Turks, cuckold Rashti, stingy Isfahani (surely of Jew origin), stupid Arabs and idiotic Lors. Believe it or not, I’ve even had a couple of untouchable Baha’i friends!

 

No, we are not racist. Even, if we dress someone up as a dancing nigger, during the Norooz festivities, like the golden times when we all had one or five. Neither do we really mean it when among ourselves; someone may call the chink dumb, the Afghan savage and the Indian filthy.

 

We have a lot of respect for other (Aryan) people. Did you know that Iran means the homeland of Aryans? We are not racist! Actually it is us who have been misunderstood and disrespected, by the white folk. How I used to look up to them … just to come for study in Texas and learn that they call us sand-monkey and camel-jockey. Us … the Persians!

 

Let me tell you something … if it wasn’t for all the British and American imperialistic conspiracies to keep us down and backward, Iran would’ve been the #1 nation on earth. Oh, if only Fuehrer had not lost in Al Alamein, and our beloved King Reza was not captured and exiled by the evil English …

Racist? ooooh never had it in me
But I can learn it against Northern Tehran's Born “where all the cool Persian have always lived “
If Shah residency was in Abadan we never had this problem of Akhoonds. we wouldn’t let him leave.
The person who invented this site was from Abadan.

Thanks God, we never had any problem with religion minorities. I am proud of that.
Unlike Turks and massacre of Armanians in 1914,
Unlike Indians and massacre of Hindus
Unlike Chechens in Russia
Iran is the only country who respected minority religions and we all lived in
peace and harmoney for hundred years.

Jahanshah R: Germans went through WWII and Hitler era to learn to be realistic. I met an elderly German woman in US. She kept apologizing me and other people for what Hitler did to Jews and others! A few years ago, many young refugees and immigrants were died or injured in a fire at a low class dance party. Rumor was that some young Germans who did not like the immigrants, did it! I don't know when will Iranians learn! Iranians (Persians) usually get their religion, character, and way of thinking from their parents and upbringing. It is hard for them to change their mind, or admit to their mistakes
Shazde jan, The way I heard was that, when Kourosh Sassani captured Babylon, he freed the prizonner Jews to return to their land or choose where they want to live. That is why some Jews stayed in Iran, and they were considered Persian Jews. Even Today, there are more than twenty thousand Jewish family living in Iran, and consider it their home.

I hope in the near future, some bright young Iranians would do a reliable research about the subject, and other aspects of our history, and publish it so we will know the truth!

Omeedvar, a little correction!

Cyrus, Kouroush was an Achaemenid, not Sassanid, Sasanian in Persian:

Human and almost all other beings have always been territorial by nature. We have inherited those characteristics EONS ago, from the time that territory meant food and mating partner; one provided us food and the other one passed our gene pool; both essential to the continuation and survival and had to be protected and the lack of either one meant disruption or termination of that specie. Racism is the territoriality way of thinking; protecting what is ours from "OTHERS", the strangers, and is true in every creed or culture; all you have to do is to read the history of war(s). One still observes that behavior in almost all members of the animal kingdom; they mark their territory and defend, fight for it, sometimes to death, like lions, tigers, leopards, cheetahs and others. So, racism is inherent in our genes and blood, good thing is that we have been losing it as we have become more civilized city dwellers.

FYI: Islam is the raciest religion in the universe! But it only allows 2 types of races per 2 beautiful verses of Quran (3:133, 23:61): 1. Race in forgiving others; 2. Race in doing good to others.

Shazdeh dear: Nice piece of satire, thank you.
On the subject of being "persian", my son was recently asked by a classmate if he was a Persian. His response: No, I'm not a cat! He was truely confused, as he considers himself to be half Iranian, and rather proud of it.
But on a serious note, the main conflict today, and indeed for the past 34 years, is not between Iran and any other country or nation. The main conflict is between the very vast majority of Iranians and a fascist religious regime with no mandate from any major social class in Iranian society. This coflict, I'm sure you agree with me, will be finaly settled on the streets of Iran, not electronicaly on any internet site.

Zendanian jan:
Be careful with Purim, which many say is actually the celebration of a genocide (mass killing of Pesians by Jews).
The story as told by even the Jewish sources, leads to the massacre of Persians (50,000 to some 300,000) in the hands of armed and angry Jews.
The original story is rife with images of mass killings (Persian nobles and their entire families to even the last young boys), and even cannibalism!
The remaining celeberation today has some hints of that violence and cannibalism, as you probably have seen in the ritual eating of the red triangular cakes (Haman's ears).
In any event, this story is not about the love between Jews and Persians, but about a hateful act (that Jewish sources justify as preemptive strike) against an entire segment of the Persian population.

Mirza jan, does that mean you won't read the "Megillah" with me?
You know how I feel about all religions and ideologies. Just thought it a proper "moment" to augment you Jewish side, on a quite Saturday morning. I love eating Oznei Haman, especially apricot or prune.

Religions like any other social phenomenons evolve and change. The part about Purim I like the best is the masquerading and wearing of masks. This ritual of covering one's face in a mask closely resembles what we do with our avatars in here. So, in a sense we celebrate at least a portion of Purim on IC, everyday, we just don't notice it.

I'm not going to dispute your narrative, or get into an argument with you about Jews in Iran, instead I'll just re post a few lines that come with that book in Persian.
Shabbat shalom.
