We can all fold our hands and smile in our supposedly integrated modern societies, ignoring the fact that racism/white supremacy still dominates all areas of our activity –especially our mode of thinking– because we see an increase in the numbers of so called successful non-white people here and there plus the lavish way our African leaders splash out our wealth. But underneath all of this facade is a glaring truth, racism/white supremacy is still the most dominant and effective system used to control the world in virtually all areas of our activities.
Who controls the wealth of the world and why is it so unevenly distributed especially in those states with abundant natural wealth? Till this very moment, why are non-white people so heavily mistreated where ever they go because of the colour of their skin?
Today I watched an expose posted by a friend on estate agents (non-whites at that) discriminating against especially African and Caribbeans who came to them to find accommodation. If Racism was a non issue based on what the propagandist will want us to believe, then why are we still facing such problems in this era?
My recommendation is also based on what I have experienced and learnt from my research on the matter. The one thing missing in the world today is JUSTICE.
Justice has defined as: “The proper administration of the law; the fair and equitable treatment of all individuals under the law. A title given to certain judges, such as federal and state supreme court judges.” – free dictionary.
But when the laws themselves are unjust, then where does this definition leave us? The ones who carry out the injustice are the same ones who either make up the laws or amend them, so first, we need to redefine justice for us.
Here’s an excerpt from Neely Fuller, Jr. website (www.producejustice.com)
I, Neely Fuller, Jr., the writer/author of these books, like millions of others, have been a long-time Victim of and Servant to Racism (White Supremacy) in all areas of activity. My experiences, observations, and/or studies have led me to believe the following:
* Racism has done more to promote non-justice than any other socio-material system known to have been produced or supported by the people of the known universe.
* No major problem that exists between the people of the known universe can be eliminated, until Racism is eliminated.
* The fear, frustration, malice, and confusion caused by Racism, retards or prevents all constructive activity between the people of the known universe.
* The only form of functional Racism that exists among the people of the known universe is “White Supremacy.”
* The people who have the ability to eliminate Racism, do not have the will to do so, and the people who have the will to do so, do not have the ability.
* Regardless of all that has been said or done, the quality of the relationship between white people and black people is, and has been, a total disaster.
* Justice is better than Racism.
* As long as Racism exists, anything said or done by people that is not intended to help eliminate Racism and to help produce justice, is a waste of time and energy.
Each and every Victim of Racism should minimize the time and effort spent doing anything other than thinking, speaking, and acting in a manner that helps to eliminate Racism and helps to establish justice.
Each and every person should seek to do this every day, in every area of activity, including Economics, Education, Entertainment, Labor, Law, Politics, Religion, Sex, and War/Counter-War.
“I’m not big on religion, or representatives of them, because they are all constructs for social order and in no way a reflection of true divinity. I respect everyone’s desire to worship whatever they see fit to, but realize that religion was/is a tool used by conquerors and other usurpers to pacify and maintain control of the masses. Be that as it may, sometimes, a great deal of sense comes out of them and so the wisdom inherent cannot be ignored…”
Excerpt from an article on Pope Francis:
“…Pope Francis spent over an hour castigating anti-immigrant politicians, parties and individuals. Wagging his finger sternly with righteous indignation, the Pope shouted “Racism today is the ultimate evil in the world. When Italians, Spanish or French turn back the boats of African migrants seeking a better life, are they not like the inn keeper who told Mary and Joseph that there was no room for them and the infant Christ? These migrants are children of God and we are commanded to love them!”
His voice loudly echoing through St. Peter’s basilica, the Pope stated “those who would dare to turn immigrants away, be they legal or undocumented, turn their backs on Christ himself! A racist is not a true Christian. A racist casts aside his humanity to become a beast, a demon! He is the embodiment and personification of evil, a Satan!”
To a chorus of thunderous applause, Pope Francis stated “because Muslims, Hindus and African Animists are also made in the very likeness and image of God, to hate them is to hate God! To reject them to is to reject God and the Gospel of Christ. Whether we worship at a church, a synagogue, a mosque or a mandir, it does not matter. Whether we call God, Jesus, Adonai, Allah or Krishna, we all worship the same God of love. This truth is self-evident to all who have love and humility in their hearts!”
In a announcement that shocked many people, Pope Francis warned that “those who seek to deny a home to the migrant, to the African and the Muslim, risk their membership in the church. We will consider excommunication for those whose souls willingly dwell in the darkness and evil of intolerance and racism. Satan himself is a metaphor or a personification, for the collective evils of mankind. Today, these evils manifest foremost as racism, intolerance, religious persecution and bigotries of all kinds.”
On what has been mentioned here, I concur with him. The biggest problem we have in the world today is RACISM/WHITE SUPREMACY. And until we address this and REPLACE this existing system with a system that guarantees JUSTICE for all, we will not make any progress as human beings.
