Musician Ajetycoon speaks on All Lives Matter
Johnson Omole popularly known as AJETYCOON recent poured out his mind via his Instagram page on the issue of “ALL LIVES MATTER” and he has these to say; “The belief that some people are inherently better and biologically more endowed is really false because God created all men alike!
The impact of social intolerance among people has been experienced in manifold perspectives and proportions and the underlying causes are not far-fetched; racism, snobbery, bullying, segregation, tribalism, religious intolerance are a few of these anomalies.
Over the years, these factors have led to a surge in violence threatening lives and contributing substantially to poverty, high mortality, immigration crisis!
Racism has taken a huge share of these social misconduct over the years!
Racism is a prejudice, discrimination or antagonism directed against someone of different race based on the understanding that one’s race is superior.
Such attitude is often found to a larger extent in the Anglos towards the non-Anglos because the Europeans believed originally that the indigenous blacks are heathen, basically uncultured and intellectually backward!
In the US, racism bothers on class division to justify the brutal system of coerced or forced labour called slavery.
Slavery was legalized in America in 1865 and over the years, many laws were enacted which made it illegal to deprive any eligible citizen from voting regardless of color!
Moreover, Jim Crow’s laws enforcing racial segregation were overturned by the civil Rights Act of 1964 and voting Rights Act of 1965.
However, despite all these laws made to foster love and equality, racism still persists!
Getting employment was tough on the colored, the blacks faced humiliation and embarrassment of incessant searches, arrests and victimization, blacks were more liable and prone to jail terms and death sentences, unnecessary murder of countless blacks by police was rampant and culprits were never made accountable!
Recently an Anglo-American citizen was stifled to death brutally by a white Police Officer because he was erroneously reported to be in the possession of a fake credit card. The police officer pressed his neck down beneath his booth and did not release the pressure even when Floyd was struggling for breath! This is the height of cruelty and sheer display of disrespect for humanity!
Racism, xenophobia, tribalism and diverse forms of intolerance are prevalent problems in many societies but we can stand against these problems as human rights champion and advocate!
EVERYONE DESERVES EQUAL ACCESS TO QUALITY LIVELIHOOD!
