How Racial Discrimination Became the Real Crisis of Human Race?


Racial discrimination treats a person or a group of people differently and unfairly; because of their lineage, religion, or the color of their skin. For instance, if two people apply for the same position, one is white, and the other is black, they hold the same qualifications, the company or the boss may choose the white person. And they prefer to deal with white people. 

The situation is a model of racial discrimination. Moreover, racism can be a reaction somehow, but in many samples, it is on purpose. So it is significant to know this racism and realize how it occurred to resist it in the right way.

This racism practiced for many centuries, and it affects the lives of many different people and groups. Moreover, it can affect societies, cause people to wrath, and lose harmony between separate communities. 

The Apartheid System

Furthermore, racism wasn't by individuals only. However, governments used racism on their citizens. A significant example was in South Africa. And the system called apartheid (the system that the white minority government followed in South Africa).

Many experts find similarities between the treatment of non-whites in South Africa during the apartheid period and Israel's treatment of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.The occupation government follows an apartheid policy against the original Arab in the region and appeared in separation roads and Entry.

The Only Solution

Racism doesn't arise in the color of skin but the human mind. Accordingly, it must address racial discrimination, xenophobia, and intolerance. First and foremost, it creates mental illusions and misunderstandings about the perfection and inferiority of human beings. 

The roots of this racism are the misunderstanding that the human race consists of separate races, people, or cults. These subgroups own different intellectual, moral, and physical abilities, which justify distinct forms of attitude. 

The truth is that there's only one human race. We are one people, inhabiting one planet, one family together in a common destiny and bound to be one soul. Recognizing this truth is the remedy to racism, xenophobia, and related intolerance.Therefore it should. 

Indeed, a correct understanding of this fact can carry humanity beyond the mediating thoughts of tolerance based on multiculturalism. Such concepts are the cornerstone of a peaceful and just world, but they are inadequate to destroy the deep-seated punishments of racism and related discrimination.

The principle of the oneness of man strikes a chord in the deepest depths of the soul. It isn't just a way to talk about ideas of solidarity. Nor is it an ambiguous concept or slogan. It reflects an infinite, spiritual, moral, and material reality.The realization of collective human unity comes after a historical process in which individuals gathered in larger units than ever before. 


Finally, it implies that justice must be the governing principle of social organization, calling for general measures by governments, international agencies, and civil society to discuss injustice at all levels.

International human rights standards embody a collective global agreement. They represent the best available tool to fight racism, racial discrimination, and related intolerance. 

The Convention on the elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, approved by 173 States, is the only legally binding global tool that comprehensively addresses the issues at the center of our debates here.
