Separation vs Segregation

People should understand the differences between separation and segregation. Many people are against segregation. A lot of times, separation is a good practice. For example, separation of criminals from other people is good.

If a black person commits a crime, it would not be wrong to separate that person from other people; that’s not racism, that’s punishment for society’s safety. Same goes when a white person commits a crime. Separation is not a bad thing.

Separation is the act of disuniting two or more things, or the condition of being separated. Separation is based on decisions and wills.

However, what we are against is segregation. Segregation is racist. Segregation is a system of institutionalized discrimination. Segregation is forced on people not because of their acts but because of their nature.

I believe criminals, thieves, abusers, etc. should be separated from other human beings, for a specific period of time, of course. I believe dictators, racists, fascists, Nazis, and many others that I can’t recall now should be segregated.
