I cannot comprehend media. The reports of racism is everywhere. Yet, I have not seen any racist activities in my neighborhood. I do not watch television. It’s full of propaganda and lies. We know this and yet we hang on every word of it.
I see people as individuals not people. It is hard for me to look at a group because I am more interested in getting to know the people as individuals. Everyone has an adventure waiting to be discovered. I want to hear about the lessons learnt in life. People as a collective are not that interesting to me. I have met only a handful of individuals that were not worth my time. It was their actions that constituted my disdain, not the color of their skin.
Media has a sick view of the world. Maybe I am blind to racism. It wouldn’t be the first time someone has told me that. Perhaps my accusers are blind to the kindness around us. We all know kindness doesn’t sell ratings. Media is in the market of making money. Hate sells. So anamosity gets displayed. What fills our eyes, fills our hearts. Is it any wonder that we go through our day helping each other thinking that everyone is hating us. We need to stop listening to propaganda. Turn the TV off, stop listening to shock jocks on the radio, and stop reposting hate memes on social media.
Individually we are already living a great life. We treat others with the respect that we believe we deserve. We should not allow a vail of anamosity to be placed over our eyes. This is why I focus on us individually. Because individually we are treating each other correctly.
