Let me be clear on my position, Man Made Social Political Racism exist and is real, perpetuated through the ages by all nations of mankind, "Race" on the other hand as in you and I or any one else being of the human species belong to separate races is just shear fantasy land make believe.
Divide & Conquer!
One of the oldest social political war tricks in the book.
What better way, and historically the greatest divider among our species the illusion of different races. One to pit against the other, then yet another, so on and so on into infinium.
This was the cornerstone of the Tower of Babel, without this initial false division, none of the other tactics would of been successfully possible. As all individuals of our unified species would of still understood that they are a part of the singularity.
The plurality, and multiplicity created by the division of the illusory "Race's" created strife, conflict and warfare, for eons.
It is time to end that cycle.
and here is why . . . .
FACT: Biologically there is no difference between any of us no matter our individual hue or origin of birth. That is not to say there are "no" differences, just none that can justify any one from any one else as being a different breed, species, or made up word "Race".
So how did it all start where did it happen, well the answer is as easy as it is complex, it happened every where at once, while curating and morphing over time.
Lets start by using basic word substitution and see if we can get the same results, this is actually a mathematical formula that any scientist would agree with, so lets substitute for our equation the real word jealousy with the made up fake word racism.
Lets use the one of the oldest references to humans of different hues from an ancient Greco/Egyptian tale called Rhodopis (Rosie Cheeks) the Original Story of Cinderella. I chose Egypt as a point of reference in time because when one looks upon their writings Hieroglyphs one sees a cosmopolitan view point of our species unified by all hues, yellow, red, white, black, brown, and yes even blue. My goal was to see if social engineered "Racism" existed among this epoch, and to my surprise while there was no such word created yet to express this ideology and political construct, there was an underlying jealousy among that population based on their individual hue.
This Egyptian Story is one of the earliest examples that I could find that reference the origins of specie division based on hue built into the social political construct, but it is not the earliest nor is it isolated to this geographical area. 17th Century China for example characterized whites as "still having their tails"
The only way to win this war against our species is to deny the battle, the word exist as a political construct only intended to create division to cause strife and warfare, there is no such reality of biological differences that separate our species into so called false races.
We are one, undivided, our traits are part of our Heritage that stem from our Ethnicity! Those are the Other 2 Key words (Ethnicity, Heritage) to enter into our mathematical equation.
What do they mean and how does Ethnicity which creates Heritage differ from Race?
Easy Ethnicity and Heritage are real and passed down over time one generation to the next,
"Race" on the other hand is make believe and simply put does not exist.
Wow, that is a lot to think about but the end result is the same, we are who we are a single species living on this planet together and as far as racism goes it's just a social politically created construct with the sole purpose of creating division through jealousy among our species based entirely upon how one group set of individual humans evolved differently than the other sets. Plain and simple.
Think about it. Our only "REAL" difference is how we each developed in different regions of the planet, all of which gives us the best species on the planet, mankind. Unfortunately those differences were and are being used nefariously to divide us, it is time to end that division, tear down the Tower, starting with the cornerstone, the one all others are built on.
According to many scholars and reported in the NYT, it was jealousy that perpetuated the belief of racism far more than the reverse that is more widely published on. For instance in the Greco/Egyptian story of Rhodopis it is widely accepted and understood during those times that your hue connected you to the divine, in the story it is an African Prince that reveres the white slave and takes her as his wife thereby making all those of a darker hue than her jealous, she was a slave, there was no white privilege, nor was there any white supremacy, and yet all the woman of other hues were jealous of her, that is the birth of racism, created out of jealously and cast upon those with lighter hues than others, over time it grew, no longer just a creation of jealousy now real hate has interred the picture and with it the metamorphosis of what we know "racism" to be today.
Yes we can all recite story after story of atrocities of all peoples of all hues committed against our own species of people of different hues, this is horrible and must come to an end.
Because in the end you still have what we started with a false belief into a social political construct that does nothing but create division, conflict, strife, and war, when in reality there are no such things as separate human races, it ranks up there with believing in other fairy tales like Santa Claus, Unicorns, and the Easter Bunny.
Don't get me wrong millions of people still believe in Santa Claus and when they wake up Christmas morning the tree is surrounded by presents, the cookies were ate and the stockings are stuffed, I get it, there will always be those that believe in something that is not true and there will always be those that propagate that myth.
I guess the point is you now have the option of choosing, do we join "Project Forgiveness" to move forward, or do we continue to believe in fairy tales perpetuated against us all.
I choose not to believe in fairy tales, we are one species indivisible and united for all time.
The way it used to be,
Thank you for reading this far,
Congratulations!, we have just removed the cornerstone of the Tower of Babel.
more to come, stay tuned . . .
