Is life really harder when Black? Of course it is, because we’ve made it like that. The good news is though, you don’t have to be black.
When I say we, I mean people as a whole, the worldwide community. Every single person on this planet contributes to what we consider to be reality and to the idea that life is harder when black. We should start taking responsibility in bringing about a change if that’s what we truly want.
Let’s just look at the word ‘black’. See, what we have managed to do through language and belief is to make this word the embodiment of negative energy. The ‘black’ cat brings you bad luck. What we consider to be evil witchcraft we call it ‘black’ magic.
It then follows that if we are going to identify ourselves as ‘black’ we automatically inherit all the beliefs that have been assigned to the colour whether we’re conscious of it or not. Why do we do that? We don’t have to. Until I was educated as such, I didn’t recognise a difference in colour in people and didn’t feel that life was harder when black.
You see it with children nowadays as well. They will quite happily play with each other until their parents pass on their irrational fears to them telling them that they’re a particular race….. that’s when racism begins.
There’s no need to go into the history of it all, that’s done and nothing we do can ever change that. The only thing we have the ability to change is the present and the future.
The thing about life though is that you have the choice about what reality you choose to accept. You don’t have to identify yourself as black, white, oriental, gay or any other category created to make us feel separate from each other. We can just be human, that’s it. There’s no need to go any further than that.
Of course it’s not going to be easy. I’ve been identifying myself as ‘black’ my whole life so I know I won’t be able to make that paradigm shift overnight to now see myself as just human, but in the name of progress and love, that is what must be done to move away from the paradigm that life is harder when black.
Let go of the separation driven mentality. We were created in a spirit of love, it’s time to start living that way.
