Don’t Like Muslims; That Is Racist: Not Trusting Islam Is Wisdom?

Don’t Like Muslims; That Is Racist: Not Trusting Islam Is Wisdom?

 

For those who are reading this that are from outside the States and who aren’t regular fans of American TV and radio you may not understand America’s different forms of racism’s. Only as in an example do I use the following term ‘nigger’ but I know no better way to try to match it (hatred and stupidity), with the stupidity and hatred of saying Muslim/Islam as though both are evil or bad. Though I have been blessed by God that I do not have a racist heart I have still seen and heard the comments and actions of others who felt free to talk around me simply because I was White. What I am getting at with the ‘nigger’ correlation is this, I have seen where an age of ignorance prevailed before my time here on this planet. I see and have seen where many Whites and other Colored People refer to the American Black Person as a nigger, simply because they were raised in the theory of ‘each is the other’. All the Black folks that I have ever been around know plainly what that term really means and that it doesn’t have anything to do with a person’s skin color. I have said that to some older White folks and received a big question mark formed into their blank looks. I have known several White and Hispanic niggers during my life time, what many non-black folks in America don’t really understand is that calling a Black person that, you are really telling that person that you don’t think anything of them as a person, as a human-being. ( Sort of like how an Islamist feels about Christians and Jews).

Referring to a ‘Muslim problem’ when you are really speaking about the issue of the people we tend to match up with Islam is not ‘each is the other’. Friends saying Muslim when we are meaning Islam is equivalent to calling a Black person a nigger simply because they are a black-skinned person and not realizing your own error. There are a lot of racist Black folks in this country just like there are racist Whites, Hispanics, Orientals, Africans… you get the picture, we humans can be stupid no matter what skin color we have. Example of stupidity would be saying that Christianity is a White persons religion, or, only White persons can be Christians. These are all examples of religious ignorance mixed with some racism and a whole lot of stupidity. The end result is always bad when we say one thing yet meaning something else. Folks like Donald Trump need to know this difference and believe it (the Truth) if he or our society have any hope of a world with some peace in it. Truth is that ‘most’ people who are Muslim by birth location, skin tone, where, how they grew up do tend to be believers that Allah is God, but not all Arab/Muslim born people do so, some are even Christians, even Jewish Muslims. Mr Trump, please clarify exactly what you think and believe on this issue because one is not automatically the same as the other and the World needs to know that the American President knows the difference in exactly who/what is the enemy, before you attack, know your endgame. By the way Mr. Trump, are the people who say they are Persian (like Iran) not a Muslim like a person from Libya, but what do you say Mr. Trump, are they all ‘just Arabs/Muslims’? It is much easier to quarantine a skin color than it is to quarantine a Faith/Belief  system?

Is Black History Month Simply Racists?

IS BLACK HISTORY MONTH SIMPLY RACISTS?

 

I hope that you noticed that I posed this title as a question and not as a statement. I am going to be posing this article in questioning form, I am trying to get all of us to think, to look inside ourselves to discover, what do we think about these questions. First let us start with Black History Month, is its whole concept derived off of racism? Are the politicians, mostly the Democrats simply bowing down to a group of people who normally vote about 90% for Democrats? Why is there only one non-politician (Doctor Martin Luther King Jr.) who has their birthday as a Federal Holiday? Is it because he was a Black man? In all of U.S. history is Doctor King the only person who really stands out as a special human being deserving of having a Federal Holiday in honor of them? Personally I am in favor of Doctor King being honored in this way, I feel that the man deserves it, but aren’t there others, is he the only one?

 

I have seen in the past when a business celebrates a certain ethnic day, where the company lets a certain group of their employees get the day off or throw a special lunching for just one ethnic group, it causes a lot of friction within the rank and file of their employees. To me, if we are going to do such things as a Nation then we need to vastly expand it, or end it all together. Just as there are institutions within the Black community where we have organizations like the NAACP, the Negro College Fund, Black Colleges, Black Miss America, shouldn’t we also have things like this for all of the other nationalities? Doesn’t it have to be all or none? What would be wrong with the National Association For The Advancement of Oriental People, Hispanic People or European People? Would that be racists? If we had the National White College Fund or the White Miss America Pageant, or Miss Oriental Miss America Pageant or how about the Hispanic College Fund, are these ideas racists? Is the concept of Nation Indian American Pageant or Indian College Fund racists?

 

When it is only one group which is based on skin color, to me it sure looks like the pure definition of racism. What makes it worse is when you have so-called Leaders of that Nationality group who do things like deny that the Holocaust ever happened because they want to say that they, their group, their ethnicity, is the only group that has ever been treated horribly, folks, that is racism. Should we as a Nation honor the other Nationalities? Should March be National Arab Month? Should April be National Persian Month? May National Hispanic Month? The list could go on and on, should we as a Nation do this? Should the same things be evaluated concerning the Colleges and College funds? The Miss America Pageant, should we have one for every race, for every mixed race? As I said, this article today is posed as a question to you, to get us all to think, what is okay, what is racist, what should we as a Nation say yes or no to? If you would, please leave me your thoughts in the comment section, I always do my best to answer all comments within 24 hours when ever possible. Thank you for the kindness of your time, I appreciate you stopping in.
