Racism HAS TO STOP!!

My day starts with BBC and ends with it. Each day, I hear stories from all around the world, happy and sad… 

Today morning was the usual one, until I heard what’s going on in New York. I had heard about this incidence back in July, 2014 that a black man, Eric Garner, died when he was literally choked to death by an NYPD officer. The whole incidence was captured on camera. Eric, father of six, was telling the police that he can’t breathe… He later died in the hospital..

The justice system in the United States has recently come under scanner for its judgement. First, Darren Wilson, the officer who shot dead Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, was cleared of all charges and today, Officer Daniel Pantaleo, accused of choking Eric Garner to death, too was cleared..

Justice has literally been denied.. As Eric Garner’s mother said that the officials didn’t see the video, the world saw.. 

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio commented on the jury’s decision saying that they are not fighting years of racism, or decades of racism, they are fighting centuries of racism..

Being an Indian, I know I have absolutely no right to comment on the jurisdiction of the United States of America, but it hurts. It hurts to see people suffering degradation, insult, all because of the color of their skin. It hurts..

Racism is the not the story of America. Racism is prevalent all over the world. It is absolutely an abhorring system which needs to go down the drain ASAP!!

Casteism has been a topic of discussion for centuries in India

I’ve been against the whole religious system, but then this added b*llsh*it of casteism makes me all the more angry. Our ancestors created all these divisions in the society for their own effin benefit and because of that, millions suffer everyday in India. 

Same story in the Muslim nations. Sunnis, Shias, Alawites etc. all have become each others’ enemies. What for?? If you kill a man, you kill a son, a breadwinner of the family, a father, a brother.. Why is that not a sin for us? Why do we have to discriminate and hate people of different race and caste??

I read in President Obama‘s autobiography about how the Africans consider fellow Africans as filthy and treat them abominably. The White men and even the Indians are looked upon as superiors.. How lame is that?

I always wonder why does the color of one’s skin has to be the basis of discrimination? Africans live in a tropical continent, near the equator, and thus have a black color. Americans live near the North pole, with extremely cold weather and are thus white. This is geography, dude!!

But it ain’t all because of the lack of knowledge. Racism is openly practiced all over the world because people want to practice it!! As simple as that. 

It’s like bullying someone. 

What I can see, is that, this problem will only proliferate in the coming future, rather than toning down.. Which is a sad fact..

Justice for Trayvon Martin.. Justice for Mike Brown.. Justice for Eric Garner… These slogans will go down the memory lane and people will soon forget them, until some untoward incident of this sort occurs again…

Sad fact..

Rise above hate. Rise above jealousy. Accept the fact that we all are same. Accept the fact that we all are God’s creation..

Love and only love can save us from all these horrendous practices..!!

May the souls of Michael Brown, Eric Garner and thousands others who died because of the color of their skin or their caste, REST IN PEACE..

Much Love,


H
