Racism bigotry, bigotry racism when will it stop? Every day it seems that another person is making racist or bigotry statements about someone. Why would these people issue such racist or bigot statements? Then moments or a little later they try and retract and remove the statement and then they want to issue a statement that I'm sorry. I believe before you make such racist or bigot statements you would have thought about what you were going to say before you made the statement in the first place.
Because it is too late once you have made the racist or bigot statement and issue those statements on Facebook or Twitter. They are out there for the world to listen or read all about. You can't say I'm sorry then. I mean you can say you are sorry, but who will believe you once the horse is out of the barn it’s hard to get a do-over. Saying I'm sorry won't help you now. The scriptures state that what comes out of a man or woman defiles them because it is coming from the heart.
Those people who make these racist or bigot statements when they are caught or called to answer for their racist behavior always try and say I'm not a racist I have many friends of whatever race they have just demeaned. They would say ask all of my friends, who know me; they know that I'm not a racist or bigot. Okay, if you are not a racist or a bigot, then why would make the racist or bigot statement in the first place? Why would those kinds of statements come out of your mouth? You need to look yourself in the mirror and asked yourself why did I make that statement and what could it accomplish?
If these types of racist or bigot statements are coming from your heart then racist or bigotry is entrenched into your core elements and fiber as a person. What is happening to us as people, that we have so much hate for each other? We were not born being hateful. So these racist and bigot statements are causing us to have hateful feelings and attitudes towards one another. Are we being taught these racist and bigot behaviors in the home, from our or your parents or are they being learned from associations with friends outside your home away from your parents? We need to get a grip on these racist or bigot attitudes before it leads us into greater, darkness towards each other and then there will be no way out, but the destruction of ourselves.
Racism and bigotry what do they really mean, maybe we do not understand the meanings and this could be the reason we fall into these traps of making racist or bigot statements because we do not understand what they mean. Okay, I'm going to define racism and bigotry so that we can at least have a basic understanding then we can hopefully move forward from here.
This is what Webster’s Dictionary states what racism is;
2. a : a doctrine or political program based on the assumption of racism and designed to execute its principles
3. b : a political or social system founded on racism
4. c : racial prejudice or discrimination
Now let’s see what Webster’s Dictionary has to say about bigotry;
a person who strongly and unfairly dislikes other people, ideas, etc.
: a bigoted person; especially
: a person who hates or refuses to accept the members of a particular group (such as a racial or religious group)
As you can read above what racism or bigotry is about, it is your belief that your race is the reason or issue or determinant (element or root cause of your problem), because you believe that you are better and superior to others humans who are not like yourself. That’s not something innate or natural thinking or believing. Racism or bigotry is being taught by someone who believes in this ideology and you are the vessel receiving this madness.
