Racism was always a good topic to talk about. Skin color was also a good cause for conflicts and wars since forever.
Nobody actually knows why it is so hard to make friends with people whose skin color is different than yours. It just makes you feel weird and puts you in an awkward situation. It seems to be hard to talk to people whose skin does not look like yours. It makes you want to stare at them, loot at their body color, ask them some questions and maybe want to know a little more about them. Of course, there are people who want to be friends with other people regardless of the color of their skin, nationality, ancestry etc. We are all supposed to be equal in this world, and we all should have the equal rights too.
But, at the other hand, there are always people who want to judge others no matter what. Whenever you want to judge, put yourself in the position of those who you’re judging and rethink it again. How would you feel if someone was not looking at you in the same way he is looking at other people? How would you feel if something was forbidden to you if something was taken away from you just because someone said that you were black? Imagine that you are afraid to tell your opinion, to say what do you think in front of people. Just imagine that you feel unsafe and unprotected to do what you want to do.
It does not feel good at all, I know. That’s why you are not supposed to judge, or to offend, or to underestimate and depreciate other people. Not everyone will agree with this, of course. Someone will think this is right, someone won’t. People are different and that’s fine. But it seems like everyone is united when it comes to robbing and stealing some things. Nobody cares if you’re black or white when they need something from you. In that case, we’re all equal.
There was this situation in the Netherlands. The test was made and it included a white guy and two others who belonged to other racial conversation. All of them were dressed the same way and to plan was to make it look like they were stealing a bicycle. People talked to all of them, but they called the police only in the case of the black man. When people talked to the police, they said that the one of them tried to take his bicycle back and the other one came back to get his forgotten keys. They said that only the black one was actually trying to steal something. In this way, it was confirmed that no matter what the law existed, not all people are treated right and equally in the western countries.
On the paper, freedom is guaranteed of course, but in the case of the real situation like this one written above, everyone feels suspicious. It is very important for people to stand up for their rights and to help other protect theirs. We’re all the same and we need to treat each other like that. We are all human. Say no to racism!Read More
