Mined in quicksand of racism.

12 June 2014, 22:15

Reality, the world over, has undeniably been colour coded and choreographed in black and white.

Arising from that reality back has been representative of the curse of powerlessness and white, the blessed throne and a towering symbol of power.

In the towering presence of that symbol, whiteness had ordained itself as the strange god of power worthy of blind worship and enjoying the monopoly of right, good and beauty.

Blackness was a far cry from godliness.

It had no ability to access power to change the world for the better. It was the source of the worst and doomed to harbor the root of evil, excelling in wrongdoing, badness and ugliness.

The religiosity with which the black and white dichotomy was packaged perpetuated a picture of sinners and a saint to entrench the myth of God’s chosen people.

Angels had white wings to fly the chosen to heavenly bliss. Sinners were dark skinned with horns and tails and destines to the pits of hell.

Mesmerized by that picture, the brainwashed were bound to find it silly to either wish or accept to be black.

Supremacist saw no wrong in believing that it was the Creator’s master plan that they are the chosen ones with a divine right to dispense all manner of atrocities to those that looked different.

From this gruesome picture were super and inferior complexes born and the forces of hate unleashed to justify the oppression of one by another, to wholesale betrayal of our common humanity. By accident of birth, places designated to the oppressed to live and die did not pretend to affirm their humanity.

Opposite this planned degradation were places denoting privilege, ostentation and opulence.

Throughout years of slavery, colonialism, imperialism and racism, political systems were inaugurated to give one race the advantage of the other in stratified fashion to bequeath upon generation after generation the legacy of inequality, unemployment and poverty.

Out of this legacy, countries were doomed to the toss and turn of an economic coin where heads you win and tails you lose.

For reasons history can’t deny, power was marked white, powerless, black.
