Controlled By Society
Racism is a figment of one’s imagination. God did not create humans to practice racism; humans created racism to practice control. Racism is a concept invented by the human mind in order to establish superiority. If one race adopts the higher level of the pyramid, it places itself in a better position to pull the strings of those below it, whether unconsciously or consciously.
If you put two children of different races in a playground and observe them, you will notice their indifference to each other’s skin color. This is proof that racism is not real. But as they grow older, they will both learn of the concept of racism taught to them by their schools, friends, parents or the entertainment industry.
Some people believe that President Trump brought racism to the masses. This is a naive way to look at things. President Trump never brought racism; racism always existed in the shadows. He just promoted it and awoke a sleeping giant. But whether that sleeping giant was awake or not, its army was still at work spreading hatred and division.
This is not to indicate that President Trump’s promotion of racism is correct. The message here is much bigger than what one president believes. One day, this time shall pass too and another president will take office. Do you believe that racism will suddenly vanish? Unfortunately not.
Racism is going to continue to grow because there are people in high places who utilize it as a tool for control. Their idea of control is based on divide and conquer; not via war, but via information and words. There is a war on your mind and part of that warfare is racism itself. By dividing us with racist ideas and experiences, our mental health suffers due to hatred, stress and division. And when we suffer mentally, we become more easily controllable.
The goal should not be to end racism because racism does not exist! Rather, we need to flip the hierarchy of the pyramid: loving people who do not believe in the concept of racism need to be positioned in high places; the racists need to be dropped to the bottom. By spreading love and goodness from the highest ranking positions of the pyramid, we will slowly be able to live our lives without the ordeal of having to witness racism.
