    Correct this to me, please.

    Hello everyone

    When racism has social or cultural reasons, then it can be easily debatable as the case with Greek philosophers including Aristotle who agreed that slaves are slaves by nature and women aren't fully humans so they naturally should be ruled by men and barbarians should be ruled by Greeks, these are arguable points and we can object and remove them even if they were rooted deep in society because they are not holy. But when a racial act is connected with a divine will, its godly roots make it unquestionable and anyone objects them, objects the will of God, and here lies the great dilemma.

    Thanks in advance

    When While racism has social or cultural reasons to justify, then it can be easily debated as is the case with Greek philosophers including Aristotle, who agreed that slaves are slaves by nature and women aren't fully humans so they naturally should be ruled by men and barbarians should be ruled by Greeks. These are arguable points that we can object to and remove them even if they were deeply rooted in society since they are not holy (the points are not holy? or against the religions? ).But when a racial act is connected with a divine will, its religious roots make it an unquestionable issue. Objecting to these rules means objecting to the will of God, and here lies the great dilemma.

    Hi,

    I have a doubt in the title of the post.

    'Correct this to me' is correct or it should 'correct this for me'

    Please clarify my doubt

    Thank You
    Norma.

    You are right of course, Norma.
    Just that I couldn't correct his title.
