Colorized Discrimination

“WE MUST UNDERSTAND THAT COLOUR IS NOT A DISTINGUISHING FACTOR, BUT A UNIQUE QUALITY”

AT A TIME LIKE THIS, the safety of one man lies in the authentic words of another. But when these words begin to destroy rather than save, and kill the soul as opposed to healing it, our safety could only become a mere illusion.  In a world where the simple is made complex and the complex  becomes simplified, a factor as mere as a person’s skin colour is bound to pose either as his greatest regrets, or a reason to testify. Our ability,  therefore, to embrace the simple and discard the complex, is in fact, our only saving grace. “WHAT IS THE SIMPLE?”. We must understand that colour is not a distinguishing factor, but a unique quality. Embracing our humanity, irrespective of our varying skin colours, is the simple. Finding a home in the heart of another, irrespective of his race, is the simple. Giving reverence to every life, and standing up for whatever is right, is the simple. Understanding all these, is in fact, the greatest step towards the establishment of social justice. The prevailance of justice holds on to the opinion of the authorities, and clings rather firmly to the unique voice of the masses. The simplification of the complex is our ability to place our gaze on that which is the surface, shutting off our minds on the beauty within. The fight towards social and racial justice begins with the mere decision to connect our hearts and souls to the world, gracefully permitting the failure of one become our failure, and the success of a person become ours too. Looking deeper into social injustice, we find deeply planted in the roots of the world, the sour seed of gender inequality, where the the gender of a person becomes a risk factor and or a death mark. The eradication of this vice, has rather sadly, been saddled on the shoulders of those who care to fight for the rights of their gender, whether male or female. Our ability to connect as one unit, realising that we are all humans, and understanding that the pain of one man, in more ways than we can imagine, is our pain too, is the first step towards our journey of a thousand miles. No matter how long it takes, no matter the hurdles we encounter, that one step would in fact lead us to where we should be. Where we NEED to be, that is, a world where social justice becomes the order of the day, and racial justice becomes the air we breathe.

    There Are more Closed Minded And
    Conservative Folks By Very Biological
    Humanity and more Open Minded And
    Liberal Folks By Human Nature True too…

    It’s Harder For Closed Minded Folks To Accept
    New Ideas And New Variations of Humankind True

    For Them Social Justice May Mean Keeping All the
    Same Not Allowing Different of Humanity to Travel Free

    With Them in this World We Give Share Care Best Tolerating

    And Accepting Differences of Each Other Best Yet Again Sadly

    It is More Often Their More Closed Minded Nature to Discriminate

    Against What They View As Change In Life

    Social Justice As

    Pejorative

    Indeed

    A Synonym

    In Fear of Change
    And Differences in
    Humanity True Now too…

    Anyway We Create Laws to Make
    A More Perfect Union in the United States

    of That Negative Change is the Karma
    Of What We Are Naturally Doing to Ourselves

    As So Much Wrath is Ours to Sow and Reap in
    Karma of What We Do or Do Not Do Now For Balance…

    Basically Population Stresses Lead to Whatever Change that Comes For Balance
    Other than That Hope You Are Enjoying School Productively in Success Dear FRiEnD With SMiLes…

    1. Your idea of Icing on cake as a perfect description or illustration is amazing. It’s exactly like icing on cake, it comes in different colours but it’s all the same baked flour stuff.

  4. Every discrimination is a part of socialism discovered by some powerful(pathetic) people to run the society according to them.

    Messed up thing is that people too fall prey to this whole bad thing.

    Hope racism & discrimination gets vanishes from the world’s dictionary one day.
    Thanks for bringing this up.

  6. Extremely well said Anna!
    I’m optimistic that the positive voices will always drown out the bad, but it’s absolutely right to cut down on the bad and negative as well. I believe justice always finds a way to rear its head
