Tribalism

Updated on October 20, 2010

We all know what the term TRIBE stand for but why is it that there is discrimination among tribes?

Tribalism is one social mishap that has rendered the world hopeless and gave more right to racism because since people are not united within their own very community,nations and families,we cannot be united racially.

Marks of tribalism and racism

Marks on brutality and immorality

Marks of intimidation and oppression

Marks of inequality and marginalization

Biafra

Scars of tribalism

Many folks in Africa cannot be without the desire to destroy others that is why it is hard for quite a good number of men,women,Religious leaders,children and even government leaders to forsake their tribal allegiances for NATIONAL GOOD.

Mentioning Africa is because i am an African and the scars of Biafra is visible in the body of every Igbo man which is the tribe i come from but then

Tutsi killing Tutsi


What will it profit a man to lift his machete against a fellow man from the same land and kill him, then rape his wife and daughter,set his son a blaze and plug the eyes of his next door neighbor?

Cutting the belly of a pregnant woman and smashing her fetus on the ground as the helpless husband and father to be watch with tears and grief makes no one a hero.

The fact that we do not belong to the same religion yet seek the face of one good God be him known as Alah, Jah, Chikene, Obasi, Oluwa, Yaweh is suppose to be a joyful thing and not an excuse to hang a fellow man,set the church or mosque on fire

Scars of Racism

Tribalism is worst than Racism
Tribalism is worst than Racism

Soweto.South Africa

The scar of apartheid...
The scar of apartheid...

In the heart of a man

lies the heart of USA
lies the heart of USA

And in Cambodia

Men were separated from boys by killing
Men were separated from boys by killing

Kenyans against Kenyans...

Black against Black
Black against Black

The prize of being a Christian

not even a black or white in India
not even a black or white in India

Not even a place of worship

Is safe in Iraq
Is safe in Iraq

What has the world turn into that mankind can no longer dwell in peace

What is the difference between a Nigerian man from the North and one like me

What is the difference between two Pakistanis who speak Punjab and wear Salwar kameez

Not bowing to god Sheba doesn't mean that i do appreciate the beauty of India


RUSSIA AGAINST GEORGIA

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND IRAN

INDIA AGAINST PAKISTAN

HAUSA AGAINST IGBO

WHITE AGAINST BLACK

MAN AGAINST MAN



What is man

That another man cannot dwell
That another man cannot dwell

Tribal Armies

One front...
One front...

National Armies

Same front...
Same front...

“Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war and until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes. And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war."(Hale Selassie)


"But until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained... now everywhere is war.”(Rossi Mobis)


YOU AND ME

Why do we have to quarrel
Why do we misunderstand each other
Why can't you see the good in me
Why can't you allow me see the best in you
Why can't we live in one accord
You and me

Do we have to fight to show our strength
Do we have to struggle to speak before each other
Do we have to show the world that we are different
Do we have to cry and blame each other
Do we have to afflict pains on our next of kins
You and me

I have decided to transform my garbage
I have decided to build next to you
I have decided to speak for you
I have decided to walk holding your hand
I have decided to put you first
You and me

Will you be there if i call for you
Will you fill my cup when i taste
Will you see your hero in me
Will you smile to make me smile
Will you cultivate your flower to make me beautiful
You and me

"It is time so let us be friends and love each other because we don't have to fight to show our strength,the beauty in you is the strength in me and the joy in you is my reason to smile,giving me your humble and friendly hand means a lot to my loved ones because the true essence of you and me as God intended lies on your understanding of who i am because i know that you are an instrument of peace,love and respect.Your genuine sincerity has opened my heart so i will never manipulate to close yours."

We can do it if we really want...

All we need is to be UNITED.
All we need is to be UNITED.

      "Racism is an ism to which everyone in the world today is exposed; for or against, we must take sides. And the history of the future will differ according to the decision which we make". -- Ruth Benedict

      As an American citizen i and others forget that racism is not just an American disease, but a disease of the world that has plagued the earth like a cancer, seeking who it will destroy.

      Voted up, marked awesome and shared. Peace to you my friend.
