The War on Racism Cant be Cured By Being Prejudice To Others

We live in a strange time filled with even stranger societal anomalies where people of certain colors are told to be... well “less of what they where born as” whatever that means.

In a time not to long ago, the great MLK started a movement that would mold and create diversity amongst millions, but even he knew the dangers of using the very thing to cure the problem of likeness. In his famous quote he presses that Line of thinking.

Martin Luther King, Jr.: ​“Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

Fast forward to 2021, we can see why that quote holds even more power and meaning to the American people. It simply incites a greater feud between the races. Recently, Coca Cola found themselves at the very forefront of this Feud.

An internal whistleblower of the company's online racism training Leaked photos of The slides included tips to learners on how to be "less white, less arrogant, less certain, less defensive, less ignorant and more humble."

So if telling people to be... well less of themselves isn’t the answer, then what is? Well it’s rather simple and sort of complicated. One should never assume that a person is racist based on the color of their skin, but such a simple cognitive ability of rationale thinking befalls on each individual to hold themselves accountable for their own perspectives, and realize when such an implicit or non implicit bias is present and make the corrective action, but to say an entire group of people is racist is plain ignorant and undermines free thinking.

So what is the problem?

I think America has a people problem. America isn’t perfect, but if it’s systems are flawed, government is flawed and the people remain un-unified, then it has a leader problem. The people are simply flawed and lack basic human compassion“
