If you see the mainstream news people are getting inundated with racist memes. Its called a political divide and conquer strategy part of the current identity politics. A control mechanism where the media mind controls ego dominated people to be totally (mis)identified with a skin color or a gender, a race, political party ( ouch) a nation, a belief and then media conglomerate sets one polarized group against each other . The people are set on each other , fighting amongst them selves while huge criminal frauds and human rights violations are going on perpetrated by govts. People are being played non stop, the msm media have moved from political ideology( dem vs rep) straight back into the race card.
Racism is racism. The current ” woke” media trend is racism against white skinned people which from what I have heard is polarizing many white people into( us v them= ego pattern) racist thinking against black skinned people or in the PC woke if they have white skin to self shame/self hating .
These white woke people say their “white skin is racist” and then feel redeemed by their media meme virtue signalling declaration . In every case of fear of ” other” (in this case different color skin) it always the ego mind that is racist/discriminatory as it is in a constant state of fear and ignorance . Black people hear this ” I have white skinned and so I am racist – all white skinned people are racist ” and think… all white skinned people are racist. Which then causes… more social distancing – racism .Hmm who does this racist media meme serve… its not we the people. As I said before ” woke” is another word for PC. It is the PC mind programming of the msms ” alt right” media .
What we are doing is not healing, bringing awareness to thoughts and feelings is healing. Bringing attention to whether your ( ego)mind is judging other people by how they look can often stop the automatic process . And that creates some space where the seemingly ” other” person can just be as they are. Perception without mental labeling .You are not reducing them to a skin color/ idea/concept instead you are honoring their essence, which is your essence, which is awareness .
That is called Presence .
White, cream , brown or black skin . People of all/any colors of skin can be racist or people of all/any skin colors can be free from racism . We are taught from childhood to see the differences not our sameness. Racism is part of the conditioned (ego) mind that judges and fears the unknown or the ” other”. And when that very same egoic mind pattern when its turned towards disabled people , obese people, a gender , any people we think of as different( unknown) we call this fear of the ( unknown) different person discrimination .
Surely in 2021 we can evolve to not see ourselves and each other as just a skin color/race?
