Have you ever noticed what happens when you smile at someone? They smile back. Regardless of race, age, gender, sexual orientation. It’s natural for people to smile, because we are all the same.
Racism is an extreme form of cowardice. It is the fear of exploring yourself; identifying your weaknesses, your insecurities, and working diligently to be better. This fear leads to blaming things outside for your problems and self-doubts, because that is so much easier than admitting you are not what you think (or want others to think) you are.
“It won’t happen to me” is a prevailing logic these days. However, it’s already happening to you – you just don’t realize it yet.
What can you control? Your emotions.
You have a purpose, be diligent.
Perspective is all about where you’re standing.
It feels good to fake control.
