“Deed” is defined as:
People think you have to believe this or that. “You’re not allowed to believe that your race is superior to other races,” or “You can’t disagree with me on this religious matter, because then the world will be in constant conflict because this belief is wrong and you’re wrong for believing it.”
It’s true that that racist belief is false, no race is superior to another. It’s also true that living by false religious beliefs will lead you to bring about a world of conflict and suffering. But the mistake people make is thinking that because a person has that racist belief, that that’s bad by itself. The mere belief is a terrible thing, and that makes them a terrible person.
Beliefs don’t do anything. They really don’t. You can believe whatever you want, that doesn’t make you a saint or a devil, or a secular bad person or a secular good person. The mere belief means nothing at all.
People having racist beliefs in a society doesn’t create racial discrimination. It’s deeds based on racist beliefs that create racial discrimination. You yourself are allowed to believe whatever you want, but you should watch your behavior and your speech. You’re free to hate someone, but watch how you treat them and express yourself towards them so as to not create more conflict, or make things worse.
You can let racist people and hateful people continue to hold on to their beliefs, but as society we should be careful what behaviors we tolerate and which we don’t. We can’t change anyone’s beliefs about anything, but a society can police behavior. And through this tolerance/policing of behavior we can bring about peace, harmony, and productivity.
