Dialogue One of Five on Race: Culture Defined
By Onitaset Kumat
Onitaset Kumat: (Reciting a poem)
“Love two hundred centuries in the light
Of mathematics, when others had night”
Knobeco: May you stop there?
Onitaset Kumat: Words halt.
Knobeco: I thank you. I adore that phrase and your poetry. I love your book, your website and you. But recently I had come across some trouble.
Onitaset Kumat: I am at your service.
Knobeco: I have often heard that there is only one race–the human race. What can you tell me otherwise?
Onitaset Kumat: When theories do not fit reality the theories are false. Look at the European, you will see that he is different.
Knobeco: True, but is not appearance a vanity?
Onitaset Kumat: There are no vanities. Every blemish has a history, including the whole of one’s complexion. As something appears it is.
Knobeco: But what of inner variety? And individuality?
Onitaset Kumat: I see that this requires separate discussions to get to the truth. Let us discuss the topic more dilligentlty.
Knobeco: I will hear you.
Onitaset Kumat: First, would you agree that some men would assault a woman for entertainment, and others, like yourself, would find such sport detestable?
Knobeco: I concede.
Onitaset Kumat: Second, isn’t it the case that some children will flog other children and others, like yourself, when you were young, would look at such flogging as wrong?
Knobeco: I do remember those instances.
Onitaset Kumat: Finally, isn’t it the case that certain families will for fragmentation, whereas your own, has developed into a “tribe” of sorts.
Knobeco: For lack of a better word, yes.
Onitaset Kumat: So would it be proper for me to say that you belong to a culture, but the world has divers cultures?
Knobeco: Certainly. You have shown divers cultural differences.
Onitaset Kumat: Then, knowing there to be divers, can I convince you that fundamentally there are but three.
Knobeco: You can try.
Onitaset Kumat: Then let us speak to culture, from whom do you learn your culture? Is not it from whom you interact?
Onitaset Kumat: But primarily, is not your culture most from your parents? After all, despite today’s media bombardment pushing you into a degenerate culture, we have already exhibited that you and yours have a noble culture akin to me and mine.
Knobeco: Very true.
Onitaset Kumat: That said, will we allow, that for the most part, ‘culture’ is inherited. And we say ‘for the most part’ to signify that culture can be corrupted, thus there is a “non-corrupted culture.”
Knobeco: “For the most part.”
Onitaset Kumat: Then we define a “non-corrupted culture,” or “pure culture” to be “those mannerisms that represent a continuity from ancestor to descendant.”
Knobeco: I can take that.
Onitaset Kumat: Finally, can we allow that cultures can depend on clime? For instance, can we say that a rain-based culture must change in a desert?
Knobeco: Of course it must.
Onitaset Kumat: Therefore, will we allow that a culture, rather than being corrupted by clime, becomes a new purity?
Knobeco: Naturally. Something climatically changed represents a novelty. Though, to say such addresses the ‘races’ doesn’t it?
Onitaset Kumat: Yes, but also such a notion facillitates our conversation, shall I continue?
Onitaset Kumat: We here come to the three “pure cultures” according to the migrations which invented the different variety of “pure” people: The Original, the Oriental and the Occidental.
Knobeco: I concede.
Onitaset Kumat: Thus, the three fundamental cultures are “Originalism,” “Orientalism,” and “Occidentalism.” This was to be demonstrated.
Knobeco: So it was.
Onitaset Kumat: Then we need look into what “oppression” is to better understand the race question.
Knobeco: Though “race” seems answered, I am convinced you shall lead me somewhere interesting. Do lead on.
