Racism against the tsunami victims?
I am using the logo of the Youth against Racism from Germany so I am including a link to them.
This is a comment I wrote in Bouillabaisse, Dianne Maire's blog, I encourage you to read it and to post a comment there because was I saw was really astonishing. The title of the original article is "Racism is a crime and should be punishable by law"
This is my comment:
I always take some time to read Dianne Maire's blog. I am surprised to see such virulent replies that started just from a plea for the tsunami victims. Racism is the result of lack of education. Education is the only tool we have to cover up our selfish nature. It then becomes a paradox for the racist because the ones who claim to be superior are actually the less educated, the ones who are unable to control their instincts, the ones who are more animal-like. So what can be done about it? Wait until humanity mixes all up so that no one can argue that he or she is superior based on skin color? That will probably take too long. What we need to do is convince our governments to inject billions of dollars in education, in showing real values to people so that they can accept differences and cover up our intrinsic selfishness that lead us into egoism and ethnocentrism. If we do not do that now, what is awaiting for us is a mega-fascist state that will be the source of wealth for a few and that will convert those "superior people" into automaton workers for their masters, with no freedom but to do their own job.
