In this life as I was growing up, I have learned to accept people as they are and accept the colour of their skin and my parents and a lot of the adults when I was a kid taught me the importance of accepting people of who they are and not the colour of their skin and one of the things I do not like is racism and discrimination towards each other. I believe we all have one body and we all have blood in our veins, we all live in this place called earth, were part of the human race and humanity and that is something very important to me. We all make mistakes, we all have people in our race that make good and bad choices, but we can’t discriminate people because of it. Learn to love each other, learn to accept people as they are. I love learning about different cultures, heritage, beliefs, and visiting and traveling to countries and experiencing culture and the society of each place. I have a lot of friends from all races and beliefs, and its such a nice thing to have conversations with different people in the world and to gain peoples point of view. This is what makes the world go around. When people go around stereotyping, and pointing fingers at each other and making fun of other peoples races, accents, and the way they look. It is not a very nice thing to do and say.
People who discriminate can really hurt someone, and it can really cause a lot of trouble. There are so many racial profiling, there are those really terrible racist words that get said to people, and I will not mention them as I cannot stand racism. Although some may say it doesn’t hurt me, but it really does hurt someone or some people. I have a profound respect for everyone in the world in regards to gender, race, cultural beliefs, orientation and so much more. We all can make a difference in this world and when someone is treating someone with disrespect, and being offensive toward them, it is not a good trait to develop. God made everyone differently and respect everyone. Yes although some races have had problems in history and things have happened where races, cultures and government don’t see eye to eye, but I do believe there are great people out of each race in the world and I do believe the people can live with each other, but when higher authorities get involved things get messy and it is not nice.
I believe in true diversity, equality, love, respect, outreaching, giving a helping hand regardless of anyone’s race. Were all in this together and we live in our communities with different people. Time to stand up to racism and move forward in life and be there for each other. Get up, and Stand up for your rights. Always. Nobody wins in racism and discrimination.
All the best and love each other.
Great Blog, I totally agree…
I agree nice post
This is a post, that everyone in the world needs to read, especially those who do discriminate. Some of my best friends from my past series of schools were of different races, but to me they were just like me no matter the color of their skin, or whatever. Speak the truth Talin. 🙂
I agree wholeheartedly.
I’m descended from Romany Gypsies – my great-grandmother was full-blooded Roma. As such, you’d think that my mother would be the last person in the world to be racist – but she is!
She says she isn’t, but she then goes on to refer to other ethnicicities as “Pakis” and “Half-castes” and pulls a face if my husband and I mention the lovely Sri Lankan brother and sister who run our local shop. She was horrified when I was offered a houseshare with a group of Muslim girls and I know for a fact that she will avoid seeing non-English doctors, dentists and surgeons whenever possible.
I don’t understand her attitude at all and find it embarrassing and offensive.
Thanks for such a great post! I love learning & embracing people of different cultures. In fact, even when people are rude & unkind to me i am nice, but I bring attention to the inappropriate behavior in a calm, but definite manner. Kudos to you for bringing awareness to an issue that impacts people of many ethnicities.
