We are moving in the direction of a socially unified world. Races are expressions of consciousness. They are perspectives. They are not who anyone is. But in today’s modern world, discussion about race has become taboo. As a result, we cannot have the crucial conversations we need to have in order to create a socially unified world. The time has come to make the topic of race and racism, no longer taboo.
What has never been talked about before is the fact that pain is not just felt by the person on the receiving end of racism. In fact the root of racism is pain. We do not develop resistance to a specific race unless we feel as if that race is a threat. So the question we need to be asking is, what is the perceived threat? What pain is hiding behind each specific case of racism? Until we address this pain, we will find no resolution. But if we find this root and begin to directly address the perceived pain that caused the racism in the first place, we can actually create resolution.
Like it or not, we all hold racial stereotypes. If we can face these stereotypes and admit to the pain behind them on both sides, racism could actually become a thing of the past.
