“Localisation” the new Racism

The definition of racism

“prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.”

I figured it was best to start here since most people that throw the word around don’t seem to know its meaning, majority ignoring the “based on the belief that ones own race is superior” part of the definition other going as far as calling mere disagreement racist.

While whats to come may stretch the definition a little its no more ridiculous than any other notion of racism brought to light by the radfem and social justice movement.

Localisation “Adapting a product to meet the language, cultural and other requirements of a specific target market.” I went with the free dictionary definition for this as it was the most suitable and while the definition sound harmless at face value it is those enacting and enforcing these changes that are the problem.

In recent years those in charge of this practice have taken it upon themselves to become moral gatekeepers of what aspects of other culture are lesser aspects and whether they should be approved or not, thus discriminating against details of a culture they deem themselves morally better than.
