Why do they literally hate Diversity? These may seem like really new and interesting times, but we have been here before. We have had genuine pandemics sweeping through communities, cultures, cities and countries right across the globe.
You are probably thinking about the great plagues, measles, chicken pox, yellow fever, or even today’s Covid-19 coronavirus. I, on the other hand, am thinking about the pandemic called racism.
Nothing has been quite as divisive and deeply entrenched in Western civilisation than racism. It infects, affects and kills the dreams, aspirations and the advancement of people. Especially those whose sole ‘crimes’ are being of a dark complexion and living amongst other people who, quite literally, hate them.
Liverally Hate Diversity
The literal haters include:-
- The US president calling Africans, Hispanics and other ethnic groups ‘shithole‘ people
- Cowardly Twitter trolls afraid of a Black Lives Matter-inspired talent show dance presentation
- Or even the manager of Tooting Market, London, serving eviction notices on the only two black traders today on spurious and bogus allegations,
We see their hatred as it plays out in real time.
We do not have the ‘luxury’ of keeping quiet on these matters. Rosa Parks would not have won the right to sit on a bus if she had just sat there like a good little black woman. Neither would Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey, Muhammad Ali or any of the other frontline freedom fighters, would have won freedoms for our community, if they had kept silent.
In this case, silence is not golden. Your silence is a signal that you agree with the injustice, racism, discrimination and wrongdoings aimed at keeping you back.
It is your civic duty to oppose oppression. Do not let so-called educated, bright, smart or ‘society people’ tell you it is impolite to talk about racism, Black Lives Matter and discrimination. You have the right to talk about anything at all, not just about comfortable topics they can ignore.
