    Jul 9 2013: There is no true and ultimate moral. Everybody's is differentiated by where they grew up, how they grew up, and when they grew up. Someone born in alabama to a white family in the 1950s is likely to have racist morals. Someone grown up into a rich family, pampered by them, in today's society would likely have selfish morals.

    Our moral is also shaped all the time. Our youth is what shapes it, but we chisel away the bad parts as we live on. Hitler truly thought that killing Jews was good. Basically everyone sees that as horrible now. Morals are a very differential variable.

    There is no right or wrong, but we can do our best to coexist.
