NO, this isn't another blog post about Obama and his historical win.
- The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
- Discrimination or prejudice based on race.
Racism isn't only widespread in the most talked about country in the world, The United States of America. The race card is pulled out everywhere.
Racial discrimination in MY opinion goes all ways. For example, a black man may say that he's being discriminated against and is therefore OK for him to talk bad about a white person based on race, but is it really okay? Is it okay for ANYONE at all to racially discriminate against a person?
It cannot be denied that the africans have suffered so long especially with the many forces against them. Take for example the Apartheid System or organizations like the Ku Klux Klan.
But nonetheless, it never is okay for ANYONE to cultivate racism, whether it is to fight or to defend.
It is ALRIGHT to fight for your rights like Nelson Mendela had done for his people or like Martin Luther King had, but to reply back nasty racial insults like every other racist in my opinion is wrong.
I believe that the only way to battle racism is through Love. Whatever love may be to you, love is the only comprehensible bridge of any racial barrier. As the Black Eyed Pea's song goes "Where is the Love?".
It's the 21st century and our world is still battling with the effects of racial segregation and discrimination?
It's apparent that in any culture, there's a double standard for each race. It is said that a black man belongs on the streets dealing with drugs, after all...it's a "hip-hop" culture( Not my words, I read it from an article quite a while back). It is also said that an average white man belongs in his 4x4 office cubicle, to return home to either his trailer park or his suburban home. It is also said that Asians belong in Laundry shops and karaoke bars.
Let's take a second to rethink of how these double standards play a role in ruining our happiness and our harmony.
Does it mean that mentioning ANY words in relation to race is taboo? certainly not. Take a humorous outlook on race from comedian Russell Peters.
Let me take a few examples of people we're all familiar with
Can anyone tell me the OBVIOUS difference between the 2 besides their names?
You don't say sherlock
What do they have in common?
Both of them are multi millionaires.
Both are top selling entertainers.
Both have reached international fame.
Both have worked hard.
Both have won Grammies.
Both have very sexy wives(or are they fiancees, I'm not sure on this part)
And they're both of different color?
what does that show you kids? Does skin color determine how far you go in life? No
I'm sick of listening to the same ol bullshit about how race plays a big role in determining how successful one becomes
It MAY determine how you look, it may determine your hair texture, it may determine your height... But does it determine everything?
Just because he's asian doesn't mean he's got a black belt in Karate
Just because he's white doesn't mean he belongs in a tux
Just because he's black doesn't mean he belongs in hip-hop apparel
What do you think?
