10 Reasons Racism Has Never Been An Issue Of Concern To Me

All we need is love

Love conquers everything, so that’s what we need for a healthy society.

Racism is the belief that a particular race is superior or inferior to another, that a person’s social and moral traits are predetermined by his or her inborn biological characteristics. Racial separatism is the belief, most of the time based on racism, that different races should remain segregated and apart from one another.

This evil ideology or belief has caused bloodshed, unrest, and death in our society and still continue to tear our society apart today. Churches and organizations continue to discourage racism and strengthen relationships without success. In the world of racism, the Black man is the one that suffers most and being discriminated against, yet no one wants to be called a racist. Below are ten reasons I don’t care much about racism, even though I feel sorry for victims of racism.

  1. Racism is a chronic incurable disease, which can’t be cured or eliminated but can be reduced.
  2. Tribalism is a form of racism in Africa, the reason in Nigeria, the Yoruba hates the Ebo.
  3. In Ghana, the Gas hates the Fantes.
  4. In Sierra Leone, the Mende hates the Temni.
  5. In America, African-Americans draw guns at each other, killing and slashing their own brothers’ throat.  Why do they complain about racism, when they hate themselves?
  6. Head of churches and government officials secretly support racism.
  7. In Rwanda, the Hutu hates Tutsi.
  8. The black man has completely lost his identity through slavery. That identity can never be recovered.
  9. Many African-Americans have neglected Africa and even hate to be referred to as Africans. Being proud of where they came from and showing love, will give them the love and respect they deserve. Above all, there are black racists too.
  10. Children are not born racists. Adults continue to teach them at home and in schools, so racism will never come to an end.

Taking the above reasons into consideration, it is a total waste of time to spend hours worrying about racism or an incurable disease. I think this is the reason Sebb Blatter said, racism in football should be ignored and settled with a handshake.

Racially Motivated Killers: Are Devils Among Us In The Likely Of Men?

How racial motivated crimes are tearing our society apart

“What do Belgian Hans Van Themsche and American Dylann Roof have in common? Both are violent racial motivated killers.”

Racial problem is like a disease tearing the society apart. It has no cure because history and society have succeeded planting the seed of discrimination and hatred into the minds of people, including children, so they grow up with it. I have said many times that “there is no child born a racist, adults contribute to both good and bad of child behaviors.”

Racial stereotypes based on nationality, colour, race, religion and other factors; create hatred and racism, often leading to death. A black can be a racist, but the most recorded bloody racial problems were started by a class of white people, such as the Ku Klux Klan, that think Whites are better and superior to other race. Slavery, the Holocaust, and McCarthyism were all inspired by racism.

Racially motivated crimes take place daily in our society, but are often ignored, until when innocent blood is shed, before the authority steps in to investigate. In Antwerp, Belgium, 2006, an 18-year-old high student named Hans Van Themsche, with head shaved, combat boots and a black leather outfit, went berserk on a killing spree to gun down foreigners, especially Africans, after purchasing a rifle from a gun shop in Antwerp.

After overpowered by the police, the investigation revealed that the racist killer’s aunt, Frieda Van Themsche, is a member of parliament for the ‘Vlaams Belang’ party, a party which originates from Antwerp, known for their hatred towards foreigners, opposing Muslim integration and against a multicultural society. Did the ideology of this party influenced and inspired Hans Van Themsche to carry out such atrocity?

 

Racially motivated crimes will it ever come to end

Hans Van Themsche, the Belgian student racist killer

Hans Van Themsche shot three people; a veiled Turkish woman, a two-year-old Flemish toddler on a tricycle and a black woman taking care of the child. The Turkish woman survived the shooting but the child and her nanny died. Being an African writer and a resident of Antwerp, I know perfectly well that, the authorities took this racially motivated killing as a serious crime, due to the Belgian child that died, because in Antwerp whatever happens to a black man is never considered an important case which needs attention.

Months after the death of Oulematou Nangadou, the decision to compensate the Malian babysitter’s family was challenged by the court, owing to the fact that the victim was illegally staying in Belgium. That was meaningless and unfair judgment orchestrated to promote or inspire more racism and likely to spark new racial violence or killings in Antwerp, but that didn’t happen.

In America, African-Americans still recovering from racially motivated killings were greeted by fresh racial motivated violence, when a young man of 21, identified by the FBI as Dylann Roof, opened fire on an African American church in Charleston, South Carolina, on Wednesday night, killing 9 people. According to the police, the motive for the killings was to spark racial violence.

Both Oulematou Nangadou, the Malian woman and Luna, the little girl she was looking after, died from gunshots by Themsche.

According to the Post and Courier newspaper “the emotional weight of the ordeal also brought local activists, Charleston’s police chief, and South Carolina’s governor to tears as they fought to find words to ease community members who fear further violence in a city with a long and complicated history involving race.”

While all these racial problems are tearing our society apart, what lessons are we learning from them? “I am so pleased that we were able to resolve this case quickly … so that nobody else is harmed by this individual,” said Mullen, the police chief, after Roof was captured.

I’m very pleased with the way African-Americans, including the victims’ families, proactively dealt with that situation, avoiding any further racial violence. ‘I had a dream that one day, the struggle of the African-Americans for freedom and equal rights will be a reality.’ Tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. United we stand, divided we fall.
