With Love, There Will be no Discrimination

I came across to a certain poem while surfing the net and this one really enlightened my mind even better. It was authored by an African child and was declared as one of the best poem ever created. It goes like this:


When I born, I Black,
When I grow up, I Black,
When I go in Sun, I Black,
When I scared, I Black,
When I sick, I Black,
And when I die, I still black...

And you White fellow,
When you born, you pink,
When you grow up, you White,
When you go in Sun, you Red,
When you cold, you blue,
When you scared, you yellow,
When you sick, you Green,
And when you die, you Gray...
And you calling me colored??

Even though there is not much issue of racial discrimination today unlike in the past, we still have to think that discrimination of any kind should be condemned. Now here in the Philippines although there is no issue of racial discrimination, still an undying conflict between the poor and the rich is at stake. It become more extreme as time goes by as i observed. Some entity or element is favorable to rich people that makes the latter more privileged and fortunate while because of having a very low social status, poor people have gotten only an unequal treatment and sometimes inhumane treatment.

If this is the problem, why don't we just love each other and just treat each other equally regardless of color, status in life etc. What is the essence of God teachings that is being taught in different churches if a mere discrimination cannot be totally eliminate. Well maybe because even the religions has its own form of discrimination and this makes a discrimination more complicated as it seems. Well, if this is the case, is religion still necessary to attain the zero-discrimination society? Well im not atheist but even a person who doesn't believe in god can be the best one if he love and doesn't discriminate other people.

I'm not saying in general that all of those who are in an upper class are used to inequality against another. I'm thankful that there are people who still treating their fellows fair and equal. I guess they know what love is and and they understand its broadness and can even apply it in real life by making good things towards the other e.g. being not a discriminant.

Discrimination is a root of major conflicts in a history and a sole reason why most people suffer. Well its impossible to attain a discrimination free world but at least everyone is aware and everyone is able to figure out that "With Love, There Will be no Discrimination." Let's not discriminate.
