Racism is belief that some people have it, they say one race is better than other. These people are called “racists”. These people can split into different groups. This split is usually done on the basis of things that can easily be seen like colour of the skin. Many countries today say that differences between people are not important as far as the law goes. That means everybody has the same rights guaranteed in the constitution of those countries.
An estimated 300 million indigenous people still face discrimination in almost every aspect of their life and many becomes the target for other grave human rights abuses.
In Honduras in recent years, police have harassed indigenous people determined to protect their rights. The government has signed several agreements with indigenous leaders but, still the protection is inadequate. Over the last decade, some 25 indigenous community leaders have been killed as a result of their campaigning.
Racism of any kind is bad; perhaps a white person needs to explain how they felt when they were the victims of racism instead of making general sweeping statements. No black person will take away the way this white person felt when they were racially abused. So, why are some white people presume to understand the effect of racism themselves and on others? We all are different people and we deal bad situations differently. If anyone else suffers, why should anyone bother?
In conclusion, an ignorant or a selfish man can never be a good citizen. If he is ignorant, then he does not know which rights to defend and which duties he has to perform. If he is timid, then he lacks with the moral fiber to defend his rights.
“Because right is right, to follow right,
Where wisdom is the scorn of consequence”
