Racism is the fox that is embedded in the woods of our minds, in the inner dialogues of our subconscious and in the actions of the conscious. And it is this thinking that makes decisions, policies and ecosystems for a society creating a world of false superiority by a selected few.
And quite frankly we are all equal.
Yet, why does our world and the access to life, liberty, the pursuits of happiness and justice for all seemed relegated to a select few?
That is, because racism is a mindset wrapped in a false hierarchy of the ego - one that says people of Color are inferior and persons of Caucasian descent are superior.
Did you know that racism and the ideology of color casting was created?
According the long 90,000 year old history of humanity on Earth, this is a new phenomena only 400 years old.
The color casting system is a mindset that says caucasians are better than people of color; hence, the context of white supremacy.
In fact, “White supremacy has ideological foundations that date back to 17th-century scientific racism, the predominant paradigm of human variation that helped shape international relations and racial policy from the latter part of the Age of Enlightenment until the late 20th century (marked by decolonization and the abolition of apartheid in South Africa in 1991, followed by that country's first multiracial elections in 1994).” (Wikipedia)
Whether you are a caucasian person or a person of color, racism creates an inner dialogue that people of color are:
Less than (the inferior complex).
Deserve to be treated the way they are at large (unworthiness, a chosen suffrage for your reward in heaven, a spiritual complex that the disadvantaged are so because of their sinful nature - heathen complex).
Are socio-economically disadvantaged because of false stereotypes (i.e. lazy, ghetto, stupid, are a threat, etc.).
And the result of this is a systematic, perpetuated way of thinking it bars individuals, persons, boys, girls, men, women, fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, families, homes, neighborhoods, communities, cities, states, countries, continent(s) from life, liberty, justice and the pursuit of happiness simply by the context of their skin.
So how do we address the mind of racism?
Here are three principles to address:
When we ignore the reality or facts, we create a false illusion of the truth.
And to not deal with reality and the truth that racism is a real thing that was created to make hierarchies of superiority amongst people; to dismiss that this same system must end is to create a mental psychosis of cognitive dissonance.
By definition cognitive dissonance is the state of having inconsistent thoughts, beliefs, or attitudes, especially as relating to behavioral decisions and attitude change.
Changing the Inner Dialogue
Whether we all like it or not, we’ve lived in a world that promotes (socially, spiritually and economically) people of color as second class citizens.
So ask yourself, do you think your skin color makes you better, more advantaged or disadvantaged in today’s society?
And if you answer yes, no, or ambiguously unsure: respond by changing the inner quiet conversation you have with this:
“We are all equal, we are all created beautifully, I am who I am, and who I need to be and that does not make better or less than my fellow Earth citizen. And like the rainbow in its beauty and awe, so am I with the rest of humanity - beautiful, awesome, and together we share in the Earth’s wonder and abundance!”
Changing the Narrative and Telling the Real Story of Humanity
Where there is truth, there is real possibilities for real lasting change.
Most people may or not know that racism is an ideal, a false theory of caucasian superiority just like the false theory that our sun is the only star in the universe and it revolves around us.
When we realize the root and source of the stories that we’ve been taught, told, and conditioned in our thinking, we understand that we have the power of think differently: about ourselves, about how we show up in society, how we treat people, and how we view others.
Does that mean we need to tell the truth about the origins of racism and history?
Why yes, quite so.
The truth is available not to make us feel comfortable, truth is available to us to identify the blind spots, the painful realities and the uncomfortable mindsets that force growth.
As the saying goes no pain, no gain.
Inspiring Minds so Dreams Thrive - Embracing Racist Free Society
Maybe you don’t believe in racism, but that doesn’t ignore the truth that it is real, that we live in a society build on it and the every way that you pursue success and think of success can very well be established by a code of conduct of what is superior versus what is not by mere the color of your own skin.
When we change our thinking, we change our lives and we ultimately change the way the world operates at large.
To possibilities of world where life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and justice is for ALL.
