I posted this in 2010, and I still sense a real disconnect — We remain a racist society. — kenne

Becoming is Superior to Being

On this day of remembrance for a very special American, I share with you a piece written by a former journalist and posted on his blog, Kiko’s House — http://kikoshouse.blogspot.com/2010/01/never-ending-struggle-for-civil-rights.html

Sadly, we continue to suffer a disease that causes many to humanize people of color. Have you noticed how the mainstream media has been so much more willing to show the horrific images from Haiti that normally are not shown, or at least prefaced by a warning that the images you are about to see may be disturbing? Is it because of the color of their skin?

The media tends to sterilize images as part of reporting on man-made or natural disasters when the images contain white people, versus people of color. I sense a real disconnect. We remain a racist society.

  1. I quit hanging out with a lot of relatives and friends because of their racism. They were stuck in their hateful ways. Really sad (what is out there still)!

  2. Sadly, it seems you’re right – there is a real disconnect. And most aren’t even conscious of it until it’s pointed out. Thank you for doing so.
