Disheartened by the prejudice, racism and hate in this world
I'm just posting this to shed light on my reasoning and POV.
Looking to have a non hateful convo with y'all.
The suffering that's going on in Syria, African countries, Yemen, Palestine, and others in the middle east is heartbreaking. What the Ukraine War shows us is the INSANE IN Your Face racism and prejudice people have against people of colour and various religions.
When people found out via scientific research that Jesus was in fact NOT white but a brown man... it made ppl in the west go mad and many couldn't believe it. I was shocked at how people would just pick and choose what to believe for no reason. A racist person can understand gravity exists based on scientific research but cannot believe their beloved Jesus was as brown as those in the Middle East.... Like make it make sense?
Or how so so SO many people can hate on a religion without going through its teachings. People... If a preacher tells you X but you find Y to be true in the bible, what do you do?? You would lean towards the bible! But so many people wouldn't even do that... They'll take the Preacher's word and call it a day. So its up to you to actually read the bible... But nope, people take whatever they see and hear at face value...
What Israel is doing is nothing new. But the funny thing about this is how Israel condemns Hitler's actions but are the ones following in his footsteps when it comes to suppressing muslims (THOSE muslims were born and raised in Israel... and are as much Israelis as those in Jerusalem. How ironic is that? My brain hurts trying to make sense of their actions.
Or.. when people in the west see a lady in a hijab they they the lady is oppressed... News flash, the lady chose to cover herself and not have her skin or hair be shown for the public because it's her belief... Yet when a lady wants to wear a short skirt, we congratulate her... How does that make any sense.... 100s of years ago many women would be covered up... and no one cared...
Today nuns are not assaulted or looked down upon for wearing what's essentially similar to a burka. OR a Jewish person who has long beard vs a Muslim with the EXACT beard length...
The blatant hate & ignorance people have is just too much for me sometimes.
People are going to ask me now, why am I ranting when I cannot do anything productive? At this point in my life all I can do is give monthly dividends to charities and explain to people that the ONE thing Islam, Christianity, & Judaism have in common is to treat people with love and respect... Yet the world does the opposite and preaches "Love your kind only, if they don't pray to your god... Hurt em, if they not the same shade as you... hurt em"
My goal with this rant was to ATLEAST invoke a thought process for some folks on here. Let's take a step back and think about why we may think Religion X is so evil or race Y is so evil.
A scientific approach would be to speak to a diversified pool of religious scholars and sit down and read into their teachings with someone who is knowledgable and then come to a conclusion on why this race or religion is inferior (ie - NONE ARE...).
If there's one thing we should be in this world for 70ish years... it's to be a good human being..
At least die with dignity.
I trust that at-least 60% of those on here are smart, kind, rational, and beautiful souls who understand the hypocrisy in this world.
Notice how I didn't refer to a specific race or group of ppl.. It's because I didn't want this rant to be against any ONE group.. because it can be anyone.
I wanted to neutral and objective.
Thank you everyone,
Happy Easter, my Christian friends
Happy Passover, my Jewish friends
& Happy Ramadan, my muslim friends.
