Which race is it you don't like? Or is it any race except your own?
Last night I was watching an eye opening independent documentary that was a real eye opener about downtown Karachi in Pakistan and how the common
people are ruled down the barrel of a gun. I felt deep sympathy for the climate of violence and poverty those Muslims have to suffer in the ghettos
there, torn between Taliban henchmen and opposing government, ruled by terror and fear.
Earlier today I was listening to some beautiful and gentle French-African music. I felt sympathy for all the poverty, war, disease and starvation in
many African countries.
Right now I am listening to a gifted Japanese electronic music artist. Feeling sympathy for the huge Fukushima problem there that might seriously harm
some of the population.
I am a half Jewish and half English music artist.
Which one of us or part of me are you racist about lol?
I am lucky because music from every culture speaks the same language and that is the UNIVERSAL language I love, can relate to and the one that speaks
to me most powerfully.
If it is just the influx of immigrants to the U.S over the border I do not think that constitutes racism as such.
Here in the UK many Afro- English, Indo-English and others worry about immigration, too.
It is an issue, but one that we must solve through correct government of all the nations involved.
Before, Europe and the U.S lived in a kind of colonial bubble. We were taking from the world, from those people in the poorer countries, unfairly.
That bubble has by and large burst.
I think we in the West are gonna have to get used to having less in an economically fairer world that does not exploit weaker countries. It was
exploitation (expecting other workers in far away places to earn so little so we could have their resources on the cheap).
Bob Marley uttered some quite prophetic words in his music (as a developing world icon); words like,
"Fire is burning men pull your own weight".
I know what that means!
Get used to it because the tide is turning. The problems have come to our own streets through immigration and are now on our door step.
I am one who loves to see the whole human family here in the UK. The economic problems we all share and we must together find the answers (if the
governments would actually act fairly and truly on behalf of the people they are responsible for and accountable to).
