Racism and foolishness
Racism is adopted by regimes, groups or individuals to distinguish themselves from others, for biological, cultural, political, tribal, religious and other reasons. Hitler was a racist as he believed in the supremacy of the Aryan race like the Germans and Persians, and this belief was built on nothing, just like the former South African regime believed in the supremacy of the white race over black Africans. Likewise, the people of Esfahan, Iran believe that their city is “nisf jihan” or half the world, maybe because they are not aware of London, Beijing, New York or other cities. Similarly, the Egyptians keep repeating that Cairo is the “mother of the world.”
This idea of one group’s supremacy over another does not rely on a scientific reality despite the existence of differences and inherited elements of people’s nature and their abilities, which if controlled or changed, changes the human being as well. So, it is not fair to treat those belonging to a race, tribe or group with inferiority, or for being socially and legally different only because their religion, tribe or color is different. We see how some people from a humble environment become innovators when they live in a scientifically advanced environment. It is ridiculous for an individual to consider himself better than others. We are born with a status due to certain factors and there is nothing to be proud about it. It is nice to belong to a peaceful and generous country, but when it acts clumsily and attacks others with no justification, we cannot blame people for not supporting their country. It is also nice to belong to a sports club, political party or a social club and be proud it, but one should not hesitate backing out when it deviates from its goals. Or belong to any religion or sect and be proud of it, but this does not mean accepting the practices that may be harmful to others. Being proud of religion, sect and race should not be at the expense of others. Material, cultural, art, food, climate and literal wealth is not limited to a certain person or group - it is rather distributed to everyone on earth, which makes us all equal.
If a person believes that financial, racial, tribal and religious status is an advantage, can he live isolated from the world? Of course not - isolation is impossible in today’s world, because people need peace, money, food, shelter, beauty and so on to live, so it is foolish for people to act superiorly and believe they are better than others. —Translated by Kuwait TImes
