Snippet Thoughts : The logic of Discriminations!

I see the character as the only scale to differentiate one human being from another. Rest all are just a stupidity.

We are all one

Racial Discriminations

If you see the differences only on the basis of races, then you are one step behind to understand that we are all the same. Thousands of thousand years of evolution due to various climatic and environmental factors has altered us, in order to survive.

For example, if all humans are white, the won’t be any civilization near the equatorial line. We all knew that our origin was Africa, when we had separated ourselves from ape species we lost hair, and in order to survive the UV radiation from sun (African regions closer to Equatorial line) our early ancestors had to evolve dark skin to protect them from the sun. It was a chemical adaptation of our body happened over centuries.

Then as some of our ancestors moved towards European and Mongolian areas, they had to adapt to the cold weather and the need for dark skin had reduced because sunlight is less compared to Africa.

Then everything was history… we started spreading across the world settled at various parts of the world and our bodies developed static features. What we call now as various races.

If we switch all black Africans to Europe and Europeans to Africa, in a few thousand years, we will see Black people turn White and vice versa.

So logically, it is a stupidity to do racial discriminations.

Religious Discriminations

The history of religions also evolved along with human evolution. Geographical factors and Leadership factors would have played an important role in determining the features and powers of Gods.

Kings were the ones who had decided what kind of belief in what kind of God that the people should have, under their control. Some kings considered themselves as Gods, so the people followed. After a time period, they just did a blind worship of the first king who had been regarded as God. Thus, it gave shape to religions.

What about the Real God? When the spiritual consciousness of humans started to evolve and the more we began to believe in love and harmony. Our ancestors would have felt the real GOD as a symbol of love and peace. Then the refining processes would have started. That was, overthrowing of King Gods, leading to chaos and confusion.

But the ultimatum of violence and rage is always peace and love. The natural destiny of our soul. Then people would have realized and believed the real GOD.

Real GOD also had own challenges, we humans are suspecting species, and when left uncontrolled we tend to become evil and selfish. So, more variations to religions happened. Some religions had centre of control based on fear, some religions had it based on customs. Stricter rules and procedures had arrived. Obviously every process demanded a name for it for easy identification.

So we are here now with our world religions, still refining and defining GOD according to our own terms. 🙂

Remember, our roots would lead us to the same source. Peace and Love. Then why we should discriminate one another based on Religions? Stupidity isn’t it?

Nationality Discrimination

This is the most recent form of discrimination and people often confuse it with patriotism. It is nothing but sign of superiority complex and a mean to express who controls whom.

Ever since, borders are drawn economies bloomed, we got our differences growing. Nationalities are even complex when it has elements of Religious and Racist discriminations attached to their culture.

If you look at happy countries, they are secular and almost got rid of any kind of discrimination. Even they would feel positively proud of their nationality but not attached to it as an extremist. They go around with people of other nationalities so easily.

All countries must move in this direction either directly or indirectly.

If you are someone who feels so proud of belonging to some nation before being a proud human, then you need to think and switch the order of pride.

Last but not least, the worst form of Discrimination is

CASTE Discrimination

All it started as a classification humans based on their occupation, then caste system coupled with religions, it has pushed humanity backwards from positive progress.

Cultures associated with the castes, eating habits also widened the gap between people. We forgot the fact that we are after all individuals and can choose our culture based on our comfort and logical sense.

Now, everyone does every job, anybody can learn anything. So fundamental blocks of Casteism had become void and meaningless. We are in no need of castes.

Casteism is an ultimate stupidity and backward thinking. If you are a believer of the castes and if you feel it is necessary, then you are driving the wrong side. Some day in future, you must take a U-turn. Better you take the U-turn now.

Overall. We must feel Humans with no discriminations. Then only we can sustain as a species. We are travelling in a positive direction. Observe history… Trend is towards universal love and peace… Extremists are slowly expelled and seen as a sign of shame.

It’s time for a change! Upgrade yourselves 🙂

Humanity : Counterattacking Discrimination

This is one intriguing as well as annoying incident happened in the Delhi Metro, shared by a Facebook user. He in fact was a fellow passenger who witnessed this and shared it with the world. Here it is in his words

” This morning I saw a well-dressed senior citizen, wearing Ray-Ban sun glasses, who boarded the Delhi Metro and went towards a pair of seats reserved for senior citizens. In it where two young boys in their early twenties; one was a well-dressed boy wearing a conspicuous headphone and listening to songs and the other was a boy who looked like a construction worker, wearing rubber slippers and slightly soiled due to some laborious task he had just completed.

The supposed construction worker had a dark complexion and was sleeping when the old man entered the metro. On seeing the old man, the boy with the headphones, immediately vacated his seat while the supposed construction worker, was still sleeping. The old man, woke him up and asked him to get up. Caught unaware, the boy saw the vacant seat next to him (because it had been vacated) and asked the old man to take that seat, but the old man refused and he insisted that the boy gets up so that he can sit with the boy wearing the headphones.

The supposed construction worker refused and told the old man that he can take the vacant seat. Suddenly, the old man turned caustic and told the boy that he is sleeping early in the morning and added that he must be from Bihar. He also added that he will take the boy to task in the next station.

The old man’s aversion to share a seat with someone whom he thought doesn’t fit his stature was so evident and quite nauseating. Unperturbed by the retort and the gaze of the onlookers, the dark complexioned boy firmly said that it doesn’t matter where he is from, he knows what his rights are, and he isn’t scared of the old man’s intimidation.

The old man grudgingly took the seat next to the boy and the boy continued sitting with a calm demeanor. A few stations later, when a lady boarded the train, the young boy vacated the seat for her and the old man looked like a fool. The boy’s response and his confidence levels were so impressive, that I was couldn’t resist but walk up to him to shake hands with him and appreciate him for his behavior. I found out that his name is Arjun and I did not bother to know where he is from.

Some of us still carry the old and disgusting colonial mindsets of discrimination and deprivation even today, many of us are onlookers (like how I was today), and that’s even worse. But it is people like Arjun who assert their rights, break the false walls that many build and many more like us allow them to be built. But if individuals do not assert themselves and if the society doesn’t actively support people asserting their just rights, how will India as a nation assert itself?

That’s why I believe that Arjun is an everyday hero.”

A Beautiful World

ChildrenChildren never discriminate one another,
until they learn that from elders!
Just shield one generation from evil thoughts!
We can see the bloom of a Beautiful World.

Video : Shopping while Black, Stand up Against Racism

“Shopping while black” is a phrase commonly used for the type of marketplace discrimination that is also called “consumer racial profiling”, “consumer racism” or “racial profiling in a retail setting”. Shopping while black describes the experience of being denied service or given poor service because one is black.

This Social Experiment shows how people reacts to it. Less than 20% took a stand against it. Though it’s less, we feel glad about the 20 percent. We need more people to join the stand against Racism. After all we are the same Human beings. 

PEACE AND LOVE 🙂

Must read Anti-War Speech : Mike Prysner

The following speech was by Michael Prysner who talked about War and reveals the truth behind the wars. It was a dated old speech (2008) yet it has the message for humanity all time. With courtesy to Oriental Review we are sharing the same here.

Michael said

“I tried hard to be proud of my service, but all I could feel was shame. Racism could no longer mask the reality of the occupation. These were people, these were human beings. I’ve since been plagued by guilt, any time I see an elderly man, like the one who couldn’t walk, who we rolled onto a stretcher, and told the Iraqi police to take him away. I feel guilt any time I see a mother with her children, like the one who cried hysterically, and screamed that we’re worse than Saddam, as we forced her from her home. I feel guilt any time I see a young girl, like the one I grabbed by the arm, and dragged into the street.

We were told we were fighting terrorists.. the real terrorist was me, and the real terrorism was this occupation. Racism within the military has long been an important tool to justify the destruction and occupation of another country, it has long been used to justify the killing, subjugation and torture of another people. Racism is a vital weapon employed by this government; it is a more important weapon than a rifle, a tank, a bomber, or a battleship; it is more destructive than an artillery shell, or a bunker buster, or tomahawk missile.

Mike Prysner

While all those weapons are created and owned by this government, they are harmless without people willing to use them. Those who send us to war, do not have to pull the trigger, or lob a mortar round; they do not have to fight the war, they merely have to sell the war. They need a public who’s willing to send their soldiers into harm’s way. They need soldiers who are willing to kill and be killed, without question.

They can spend millions on a single bomb, but that bomb only becomes a weapon, when the ranks of the military are willing to follow orders to use it. They can send every last soldier anywhere on Earth, but there will only be a war, if soldiers are willing to fight.. And the ruling class, the billionaires who profit from human suffering, care only about expanding their wealth, controlling the world economy.

Understand that their power lies only in their ability to convince us that war, oppression, and exploitation is in our interest. They understand that their wealth is dependent on their ability to convince the working class to die, to control the market of another country, and convincing us to kill and die, is based on their ability to make us think that we are somehow superior.

mike prysner

Soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen, have nothing to gain from this occupation. The vast majority of people living in the U.S. have nothing to gain from this occupation. In fact, not only do we have nothing to gain, but we suffer more because of it. We lose limbs, endure trauma, and give our lives. Our families have to watch flag-draped coffins lowered into the earth.

Millions in this country without health care, jobs, or access to education, have watched this government squander over FOUR-HUNDRED AND FIFTY MILLION DOLLARS A DAY ON THIS OCCUPATION. [IRAQ]

Poor and working people in this country, are send to kill poor and working people in another country, to make the rich richer; and without racism, soldiers would realize that they have more in common with the Iraqi people, than they do with the billionaires who send us to war.

I threw families onto the street in Iraq, only to come home and find families thrown onto the street in this country, and it’s a tragic, and unnecessary foreclosure crisis.

We need to wake up and realize that our real enemies are not in some distant land, they’re not people whose names we don’t know, and cultures we don’t understand. The enemy is people we know very well, and people we can identify. The enemy is a system that wages war when it’s profitable. The enemy is the CEO’s who lay us off from our jobs when it’s profitable; it’s the insurance companies who deny us health care when it’s profitable; it’s the banks who take away our homes when it’s profitable.

Our enemy is not five thousand miles away, they are right here at home. When we organize, and fight with our sisters and brothers, we can stop this war, we can stop this government, and we can create a better world.
