The Law is written in Black and White

Racism can be simply defined as individual races of people believing that they are inherently superior to the other. The idea that one race is inferior to others gives way to abusive behaviour leading to mental stress, social harassment and even physical assaults.

All people are born equal and nothing can change that. With the increase in education and intermixing of various races, racism should have ideally extinguished but sadly such behaviour is the blatant reality and shows no sign of toning down.

Racism has no scientific explanation and racist people are entirely ignorant about the feelings of other human beings. Racism creates a huge impact on individuals like the wrecking of one’s self-esteem, causing serious mental problems. It fosters division in society and tears down a friendly society wherein communities, students and staff can be separated on basis of such illogical thought processes. It is ridiculous and inhumane to make fun of people due to their cultural backgrounds and the colour of their skin.As rightly said by Ms Maya Angelou “prejudice is the burden that confuses the past threatens the future, and renders the present inaccessible.

In every corner of the world, we hear about modern society embracing diverse cultures and people. We try to accomplish immense things like World Peace, eradicate hunger and poverty but it is quite a dilemma that we are not ready to unite to make these small changes that can revolutionise society to a great extent. We must not encourage racism or any form of discrimination. We should put in all our efforts in making the world a beautiful and progressive place to live in. As rightfully quoted by Angela Davis, “In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist. We must be anti-racist.”

In conclusion, I would like to say that racism is not progressive and beneficial to society but quite the contrary. In this modern day and era, people cannot afford to be distinguished based on their skin colour, race etc.
