Why BAME Individuals Are Mentally Stronger
EDIT: This article was written before the racial brutality that occurred to George Floyd in Minneapolis, USA. Rest In Peace.
Survival. It’s what is incorporated into us. When we come under substantial stressors we adapt to survive. Some don’t, some do… Unfortunately that’s life.
Not all BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) individuals suffer from racial discrimination in western culture. However if they didn’t, consider the likelihood of this occurring to their parents. If not parents, grandparents. Now consider the nature of abuse. How strong and evil it was. How if the afflicted individual didn’t change the nature of themselves how they would deteriorate and die. How they would pass on instruction to their offspring that the world is no more a playground but a minefield. That they should concentrate on what is assigned to them and not explore their own mind and conjecture. How they should be a certain way.
And see how this feeds back into racism. How evil racists and xenophobics will degrade an individual stating to them that, “You’re all the same. A mere copy of all the people of the same colour as you. You are a subhuman. Not like me, I can do what I want. I can be who I want. I can see who I want. I can eat what I want. I have freedom. You choose not to have freedom and focus on a narrow set of easily stereotypical behaviours. It’s like that you patented your colour and no one can step out of this brainwashed behaviour.” Well first of all they won’t be this articulate or aware. If they are they have clearly distorted views. Their views are as superficial as their worth in life. It does not matter if they are educated or not, whether they are attractive or not, whether they are old or not. Their worth once they abuse anyone, let alone an individual who is kind and helpful to them, is non existent and they deserve no further place on this planet.
This evil double-standard is no further from the truth than is the denial of racists who state they were merely joking.
I am not joking and will happily die for my cause.
I’ve taken plenty of abuse but now understand the far reaching consequences that it has. I am willing to generally adapt but am unwilling to change who I am because of a group of c***s who will further abuse the change.
There is no acceptable form of racism.
