Obstacle 85: Racism

“Color is not a human or personal reality; it is a political reality.” ~James Baldwin

Racism retards realism. Prejudice of amy kind is injurious. Whether it is ethnic, social, sexual, racial, body type, or religious intollerance; its effect on society is calamitious.  Divisive racial attitudes, which are learned, are the cause of stereotypes, hatred and social polarization.  These extenal barriers can be overcome with compassion.

The pain of racism runs deep. It is manifested in the arousal of intense suspicion, fear, territoralism, and pride – all of which are self-devaluing obstacles. Science has proven that as a species, mankind is genetically more alike than different.

Racism, like prejudice of any kind, is man-made. Refuse to internalize the negativity. Validate yourself. Appreciate the worth of all people. Be kind to one person at a time, its the human thing to do.

Embrace diversity.
