Mahatma Ghandi was a racist who disliked black people



Did you know that Mahatma Ghandi was a racist who disliked black people? I did not know that people of color could be racist against other people of color. It's as if all people of color are not the same. Color is color, what is the difference for liberals, right?

Anyway, it seems Ghandi really didn't like blacks. He called them "Kaffirs", which is a derogatory term for black people, even worse than Negro (as in "United Negro College Fund") or colored person (as in "National Association for the Advancement of Colored People").

In 1893, Gandhi wrote to the Natal parliament saying that a "general belief seems to prevail in the Colony that the Indians are a little better, if at all, than savages or the Natives of Africa".

In 1904, he wrote to a health officer in Johannesburg that the council "must withdraw Kaffirs" from an unsanitary slum called the "Coolie Location" where a large number of Africans lived alongside Indians. "About the mixing of the Kaffirs with the Indians, I must confess I feel most strongly."

The same year he wrote that unlike the African, the Indian had no "war-dances, nor does he drink Kaffir beer"

And also

Gandhi described black Africans as “savage,” “raw” and living a life of “indolence and nakedness,” and he campaigned relentlessly to prove to the British rulers that the Indian community in South Africa was superior to native black Africans.

One of the first battles Gandhi fought after coming to South Africa was over the separate entrances for whites and blacks at the Durban post office. Gandhi objected that Indians were “classed with the natives of South Africa,” who he called the kaffirs, and demanded a separate entrance for Indians.

At a speech in Mumbai in 1896, Gandhi said that the Europeans in Natal wished “to degrade us to the level of the raw kaffir whose occupation is hunting, and whose sole ambition is to collect a certain number of cattle to buy a wife with, and then, pass his life in indolence and nakedness.”

How can liberals deal with this?

Questions for discussion:

1) Can Gandhi be forgiven because he was non-white, and non-whites, by definition, are never accused of racism?

2) Or is Gandhi entitled to less protection because Gandhi was a non-black non-white?

3) Do Gandhi's racist attitudes transcend even his non-whiteness and thus make him culpable by the standards by which white people are judged?

4) If the answer to #3 is "yes", would your answer to #3 still be yes if Gandhi had been a black man making the same comments about Indian people?
