Mentorship program project: #EMBRACE DIVERSITY
“Racism is man’s gravest threat to man&emdash;The maximum amount of hatred, for the minimal amount of reason”
Racism and stereotypes, in every form, spring from ignorance. Even though we may not see a lot of it here in Canada, trust me, it’s a big problem in other parts of the world, and it has been such since ages. Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. WE are the ones we have been waiting for. We are the change that our generation needs. And bringing about this change is easy, as no one is born hating another because of his skin color, background or religion. People learn to hate. And if they can live they can learn to hate; and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally in human nature than its opposite. And education is perhaps the most powerful weapon one can use to fight racism at its source, and change the world for good. I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and stereotypes that the bright daybreak of unity and oneness can never become a reality. However, for now, we need to understand that racism is still with us, in some devastating forms. Being enlightened, it is up to us to brace our next generations for what they have yet to meet, and hopefully soon we shall overcome it. In the end, I want to say that “You don’t fight racism with racism, but with solidarity and education”.
