Lately there have been a lot of people having discussions about equal rights, society’s look on it and much more.
One of the things is that there are a lot of people that still have the mentality of the time of slavery. They don’t want to accept the fact that the world changed and some people have the idea that the world is still the same as it was 500 years ago.
These people still believe that they are the upper class of the world and that they are the one’s who “made America great”, when they are the one’s who expelled the “real” people out of America. The one’s who were there from the get go and lived in peace, those were the Indians. They are the original residents of America. Although many people want to deny the facts, it is what is the truth. The main issue for the people who live there now is that if “real” residents would be given what they deserve, they can’t tell their children about Christopher Columbus, the great “white” man who discovered America. which means that they would have to tell their children how he scared away the Indians and killed many, for his own benefit.
Another thing is that there is a group of people who strongly believe that they are the one’s who own the world and that nobody can take that away from them. They think that everything they do and everyone they meet should be seen as a miracle in life and that they shouldn’t be bothered with “the common human being”. They are convinced of the fact that they are the “perfect” person and that is one of the things that makes the world just a little less pretty, because they don’t think they need to think about their fellow human beings, which is a shame.
On the other hand there are still a lot of “black” people who have what we call a “slave-mentality”. Which means they think that they still need to listen to the “white” men and that they still need to let people use and abuse them. Those things are also an issue, because if I can’t see myself as a free human being, it doesn’t matter who says it to me or what society says about me being free. I will still think the same and that is what they don’t understand. If society tells me that I am a free man, but I can’t see myself doing what i want, without the oppression of the “white” men, then what is the point of a free human being.
There are people who don’t think that it is necessary for us to educate our children in the knowledge of how life could/would be if we would all treat everyone the way they deserve. If we would give our children a good education and a good example, without the oppressed truth, but the real truth, then we have a change of making the world a better place for them. Because just as the “white” man, the “black” men also has parts of their history that they don’t want to share or acknowledge in life.
