Psychedelic Thoughts On Racism
I’ve been called many things, such as “Sand Nigger”, and “Towel Head”, and “Terrorist” and some things much much worse. But what makes them bad or worse? Me. My mind assigns a value judgment to it based on what it knows. That if I hear this, it should make me feel bad, and thus I should feel bad. Conditioning of knowledge is our enemy. Knowledge, that came in from the outside. If you didn’t know that racism was supposed to make you feel bad, would you feel bad?
Sure, it feels bad. But the psychology is that I feel bad that someone would go through their entire life hating people they don’t know because of difference in appearance. If you get to know me, take the time to find out that I’m an asshole, then you hate me, that’s cool.
How about we start speaking well, articulating well, and taking the time to speak our thoughts in a manner where it’s respectful and respectable? How about we just stop using such words? How about if we just stop talking about racism? How about if we stop psychologically nourishing the horrid ideology of racism? It’s not real. It’s just an “ism”, an ideology enforced upon us. The only thing that makes us different is the conditioning of knowledge. You take all that away and underneath we’re all the same. Just a collection of cells. A body holding the entire knowledge of the Universe. I see no difference in you and I. None other than knowledge which tells us that we are different.
What are you? White? What am I? Brown? What is he? Yellow? Labels. Conditioning of knowledge. Take this away and what do you have left? The body. Same as yours as it is mine. Same monkey flesh as yours as mine. The only thing which divides us is thought and knowledge put into us by culture and society. The knowledge that we are different races or tribes does not exist in the body, in the Natural State of the Organism.
What if we all stood up, and said, “I make it my vow, and my personal responsibility to never be violent.” What if every single person stood up and said this? What do you think would happen? What if we all stood up and said, we refuse to partake in your divisive language. Language makes the world, and we are going to make our own language, and shape the world as we want? What if we all stood up and said, whom would they make armies out of to send in for wars? Whom would they make police forces out of? Whom would they have to police over?
It is time. We must take back our minds from cultural conditioning that causes nothing but agony. The agony of life is caused by knowledge.
