Racism the true origin from social order, greed, and the struggle for Power
A provocative short documentary & true life compelling story
Where does such a ugly thing originate from, it surely had its real purpose of separation
"The word prejudice (or foredeeming) is most often used to refer to preconceived judgments toward people or a person because of race/ethnicity, gender, social class, age, disability, religion, sexuality, nationality or other personal characteristics. It can also refer to unfounded beliefs and may include "any unreasonable attitude that is unusually resistant to rational influence."Gordon Allport defined prejudice as a "feeling, favorable or unfavorable, toward a person or thing, prior to, or not based on, actual experience." (Directly referenced from Wikipedia's definition)
Racism is nothing without its best friend and concubine prejudice, lets not forget its mother as well as ultimate soul controller, and true dictator of the game, discrimination. Well to define them all here in this article would simply waste much of the originality of this hub, and so I will refrain from doing such. You can look them up on Wikipedia, to get their wicked notorious definitions if you wish, but most people who have experienced them up close and personal all know it so well, what its set out to do to them, and for some unfortunate souls has truly done over (In the most horrible, demoralizing and humiliating of ways one can imagine that humans can be treated). Now for those who have used it as a sort of leverage and power source to take advantage of others, well they know why they've sought out to use its mighty sword of slithery devilish destructiveness.
My Hub writing inspiration of the year! She is amazing folks!
The writing of this hub was an inspiration from a fellow hubber who's actually new to the hubpages family and goes by the name of Angela Brummer. Her hub was sensational and titled "Stopping Racism", and I think we all should read it and show her some love. She is a powerful writer and has already amounted 441 followers thus far which is pretty far out, for only 6 weeks on hubpages, plus she's only written 14 hubs total thus far which says a whole lot about her awesome writing talent. (Which is the exact number of followers I currently have after 9 months.)
Wow! the numbers she's currently putting up here on hubpages is quite astounding, and lets cheer her on, as she might be the very next hub millionaire, if there ever was one.
Today we are equal and undivided
The cruel and utter experience of Racism
Experiencing racism is tough to deal with for sure, and especially when you are considered by most people to be that of the minority in a social group or that of an entire society of individuals. Today’s form of racism has definitely played its part on keeping things somewhat separate and mostly unfair for many people.
One prime example of this is where certain writers are not celebrated for that of their true written quality, and value of their written works, at times due to being judged by that of their peers in an unfair an unequal manner.
This has even been done here on hubpages in the past per-say by fellow hubbers who've simply left hate messages for no other reason, but because they must of thought they could get away with such unrighteous hatred (Racism isn't tolerated here on hubpages). I've even read a hub from a fellow hubber who I won't name, who actually committed such racist remarks against his own race in his hub. I saw this when I first joined hubpages, and of course I flagged that hub for inappropriate content or behavior that was placed in the comment area section. So if you see it anywhere on the network, make sure to flag it! but be sure that it is in fact a racial epitaph towards someone, because you may have to explain yourself to the hubpages staff if it isn't.
I have also been attacked by a user here as well but only one time, and he was removed from the network, and this was when I had put my real life photo into my hubpages profile, and yes I am African American in decent, but it was handled by the hubpages staff I assume, because his profile simply vanished into thin air there after. His user name was Neil, and his comment he left me was quite amusing to say the least, its on my Cloud Computing article that earned me a Hubnugget award when I had first joined the network here. (It appears that his attack may have actually been racially motivated, judging by the tone and words in his hateful comment he left for me there, you can see it for your own eyes and take what you think of it there.)
This happens in many differing arenas and not just in the field of writing, but has occurred in many facets of life. Racial discrimination is ugly and it’s extremely harsh at times on its victims, and is also a crime in America to use such things against people to assimilate any form of action, gestures, or exhibiting any forms of biases towards someone according to differing appearance in a person’s skin tone alone.
Thought's on the civil rights movement
There's not quite any other moment in history as that of the civil rights movement where racism had actually lashed out much more violently, and in this reason of social issues in America has engraved a permanent scar on the psyche of human beings worldwide to never ever forget.
At such a time period in history the rights of all human beings were truly questioned, the moral fiber and code of ethics of an entire nation was tested, and the tensile stress of our very honor and courage to recover from such a decrepit condition is tremendous to say the least, because both villain and victim were in a terrible place during those times in our modern history for sure. Mainly because even if you were on the discriminant delivering end, you had to be a truly empty soul to land such physical or mental abuse on that of another human being, who had been absolutely defenseless towards their assailants and vicious criminals.
The funny thing about history though is that, prior to the civil war, and the freedom of the once enslaved class of people, it was within the laws to do harm to that in which you had owned, meaning that torturing and beating, and even killing of your slaves was warranted and accepted, as well as legal under the United States court of law. Plus after slavery was abolished throughout the United Stated, it was still against the law to mix with African Americans in the south, and some places up North (Due to preexisting constitutional laws of segregation). Could you imagine it was even against the law for a slave to learn to read, as I learned about in college while reading the autobiography of Frederich Douglas.
So when looking at a persons moral compass, and from which their family blood lines derived, its not hard to understand why they may actually think it is still quite alright to be racist, and a bigot towards yet another human being. This is just an example of how the whole blood line social thing has played itself out over time in America, but has been going on for centuries all throughout the ages of man made time and everywhere on a much grander scale of that of the whole entire globe.
Just a philosophy of division
Racism is a social power tool and instrument of division, and a true force of darkness and has been used as an element of surprise that has come in handy and played its utterly forceful unforgiving role of separation. Setting its most harsh and final course, as to what is to happen to that of the masses of people, when the time comes for who’s who, and what’s going to be rendered to that of ownership of land, private property, by those who were its care takers and deliverers of such a brutal force.
It was also used to establish who was allowed at one time to have control of raw materials that exist in many lands,and especially after a ethnically based war has been won, and once all the dust had settled in some far out foreign land from which had been occupied by invaders, and where war was imminently derived from strategic planning for many years.
This is where racism had its true origins which must have been contrived by such rulers of ancient times, and it all began with the countless wars over the ownership of lands & wilderness.
I think the whole hatred towards differing colored skin, simply became a cover up in my opinion, to disguise the real fact that it all began over greed, jealousy, and outright wrong doings towards particular races of people, and ethnicity's.
This sort of compelling force of unrighteousness was handed down by the ruling classes of Europeans in which their descendants who became known as European Americans (Anglo Americans) inherited over time, and some of whom which have yet to let go of. (Refer to wikipedia for Racism in the United States to get a better view and perspective on it all.)
In any event all walks of life have their differences with one another, but for the most part things do appear to be improving on a global scale when you look at the way thing had been many years back when the world was much less united, and more physically divided based of geographical barriers that physically separated people from one another whether it be by land mass or by that of the sea, or acres of ice.
It isn't about skin color at all, its all about a power struggle
If you are treated wrongly no matter what it is something that will tend to throw off your equilibrium somewhat, and to me this is the actual purpose of racism, it is a negative force that only gets power from harnessing evil within the mind, and then must be thrown outward at someone in the form of mind or bodily threats, taunting, or outright horrible sounded wordings (Racial or ethnic slurs) that have the potential to harm another person psychologically, mentally or physically.
Actually being racist towards someone is a proven technique, that was all set up purposely by the likes of some truly weak individuals who seemed to crave for others energy, for control, to be worshiped (As a so-called slave master), desired attention, and had a true hateful purpose.
Now these hurting souls had sought out to get what they came for in an all out attempt to arrive themselves at a far more superior stance of negative emotional feelings, physical and or spiritual false confidence. This all in hopes to become more powerful, and to gain utter supremacy over their victim or group of victims, that this particular form of hatred had once targeted in a huge way, and mostly as land and property came into full scope of occupying and take over.
This is done to create a division of power, and is something that has been a technique used to create metaphysical boundaries between people, when it comes to unity being achieved.
In any social structure whether it be that of mankind or that of animals war, fighting, and division is eminent. There is always going to be a defining moment where someone will step up and try to dominate that of another social group, class, or even an entire species over another.
Oppressive governments and regimes have all used racism, sexism, and the separation of classes church & state, to restructure things socially as they saw fit, as had occurred with Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Joseph Stalin, in South Africa with the apartheid saga & Nelson Mandela many years back.
These are just some examples of the ugliness that hatred and racism has spread worldwide over time, but it has its truest origins in world domination, destruction of human beings, and ultimately greed stemming all the way back to ancient times. This actually proves that skin color is a more recent face of racism, and it goes much deeper then that where its true unrighteousness has been mustered up from. Many more told, and untold stories also fit into this hurtful truth, but if we don't learn from such a reality and fact we are surely doomed to repeat it.
Flash Poll on Racial issues
Whats your take on racial equality or unity today between differing races
Racial Equality over that of inequality
Over the years there's been massive changes in how people tend to socialize, and mainly because of efforts from politicians, advocates of civil rights, and many other factions that have teamed up together to put an end to racism once and for all.
Martin Luther King Junior, is one many who's fully credited for such efforts, and there's countless others, and there's is a few Presidents as well who have stood out above the rest in the spreading of the fact of unity, and justice for all. President John F Kennedy was assassinated for what hood stood for, and so was Martin Luther King, and so many others like Malcolm X all stood for racial equality in the end, but at first Malcolm has been a racist, and black supremacist himself.
These individuals fought for our civil liberties and rights, but those who were truly racist took lethal shots at them in all out attempts to use hem as example's for us all to see what happens to folks who try to unify the races, and this was done by those who had so much hatred built up in their hearts and minds, but that hatred actually. Whats quite ironic though is, their evil strives to keep us all separate has done quite the opposite and has back fired on them all, because today we have a black president known as President Obama and is the 44th President of the United States of America.
Now, no matter what people may say to try and change such a well known fact, or take away from Obama's accomplishments, it is a done deal that will be written into the history books as the fact that we are being lead by a descendant of an ex-slave.
So it is true that our world has seen a great deal of change in terms of humans exchange of power, control, and overall global dominion. We should all be proud to be living at a time where we definitely in reaching distance and one step closer to global unity, and unity of all humanity due to this undeniable factor that even a African American can become a commander and chief of the almighty U.S. and that of his face being placed onto the America Dollar.
My thoughts on it all
I do like to say though that we've definitely come a long way indeed, and hopefully mankind can some day laugh at all of this mess we created on earth, and look back at our more primitive mindsets, and cultures we all came up with to only celebrate as one world together, each day, each year, and to simply celebrate our moment of triumph over so many countless world depressions, global atrocities, and horrifying moments we've all survived to tell these compelling stories about.
Maybe some day I can write a book about such a reality coming to life, and until then I will be in hot pursuit to help add to the unification process which many of us all want and deserve to have.
"United we stand and divided we fall"
This is me today folks networking in every way possible and sharing like a mad man outside of hubpages, Unity is near for us all
The land of the Free
America is a boiling pot of many differing races, creeds, cultures, and with that being the case, the mixing of classes and of differing cultures worldwide, has brought fourth such a reality of social fusion and potential for unity, which in the past may have not been possible. If it wasn't for the total reassessment and complete take over of the lands of the Americas from that of the native culture here known as Native Americans, we wouldn't be here to even enjoy our day to day living in the United States and so this is all a end result of wrong doings somehow turned into right doings.
They also fit into this tightly knit racial equation of sorts, and for some odd reason take the brunt end of the stick when it comes to many social issues being brought up, or issues of race being discussed.
The fact is they are the rightful owners of this land, and its all been taken away from them, but they still have the true moral inner nature to forgive, but never forget. So if they can do so why is it that we all can't do the same no matter which side of the fence we stand on.
I think racism is silly when you really come to think about it and is a factor of definite greed though because what power would it have if it weren't for the division of lands, and wrongful and unfair take over that has occurred in America at one time.
Pretty much it needs to be destroyed, in order for us all to some day become harmonious in our search and quest for racial equality worldwide. This would only bring further rise to true freedom, which I deeply feel is to be loved by everyone and to show love for others no matter how they appear to look.
