Response to question everything (Original post)

9. I'm not sure I agree that Goldberg has "next to no knowledge."

Take a step back and consider that she may have a valid point to make when she prefers the term "man's inhumanity to man." Yes, she's wrong to say that racism wasn't a core element of the Nazi ideology. But Catholics, communists, and mentally challenged or handicapped white people were also the targets of their eugenic campaign that led to extermination in concentration camps. It's actually more complicated than just pure racism. As a black American, Goldberg's view of what constitutes racism could well be valid in spite of the majority's consensus that it was a purely racist program. It is not as black and white as some are insisting.
