RACISM

I AM OF ONE RACE AND IT IS THE HUMAN RACE

Racism is a product of the complex interaction in a given society of a race-based worldview with prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination

The UN describes the term "racial discrimination "as any distinction, exclusion, restriction, or preference based on race, colour, descent, or national or ethnic origin that has the purpose or effect of nullifying or impairing the recognition, enjoyment or exercise, on an equal footing, of human rights and fundamental freedoms in the political, economic, social, cultural or any other field of public life.

Nobody on this earth got to choose what colour ,what country or family they where born into .How can you take pride in something you had no control over .What makes you think you are better for being a certain skin tone?Its not enough that you have to be either white or black, but we have to compare  how black or rather how much lighter  you are from being black or from being closer to being white .
Being light skin you are better than a black person ,but still you are beneath a person with white skin .So you cant really fit in anywhere.


William lynch in 1721 wrote a letter to slave owners saying,"divide blacks by the tone and you will control them for 300+ years." here we are 295 years later. We should open our eyes and see how we are being fooled!How we are being duped into falling for everything we are told that we stop seeing the truth .Are we really that far gone that we no longer know a truth from fiction.
.
Over the last few months .It has become clear that, racism is still very much alive and its getting to a point where  more and more people .No longer feel the need to pretend anymore.To be honest nobody is born a racist .We are born unaware of the differences.When we reach the age of  2 and start self discovering and being aware of the things round us and start to ask questions. The answers we get on that journey are what base our decisions our ethics and ultimately who we are.
Anyone in a position to help change this world view on skin tone to the next generation needs to be the change they hope to see .

The realization is that we are all made up of the same features the main difference is the origin of a person  and that's something you cant change .so lets put our energy into fighting what we can change or help improve the quality of life in this world that seems to be spinning out of control. You need to be able to accept people as they are and stop letting the headlines fool you into fighting and taking up a cause while they intentionally don't tell you the real issues because that's what the media does and that's what it is for ,because the people at the top control what you get to hear.
