    Are (YOU) a racist ?

    السلام عليكم و رحمة الله وبركاته

    It`s not something surprising that racism is faced by lots of opposition worldwidely . Many times we refer to some people to be "racists" and it seems almost EVERYBODY complains about being discriminated against! If this is true and all of us are victims of racism , then WHO is responsible for it ?

    Is it possible that "WE" ourselves are racists against certain groups but find that not really harming , while we magnify the issue of others being racists against us ?

    My purpose of this thread is to make everyone of us think about him/her self and start changing himself/herself from within (if you discover you might be a racist), so all of us can purify our hearts and enjoy communities free of racism.

    Have a nice day /night brothers and sisters .

    Ps: Btw , no one can know what youranswer is , so relax and vote please

    Walikum Asalaam


    Race And Colour Is Important To Me As It Defines A Person - its Who They Are. I Love Learning About Their Culture And Way of Life. But I Embrace It Rather Than Let It come Between Friends Etc. :insha: That Makes Sense

    Example Aisha Is Aisha Not Asian Aisha Or Pakistani Friend Aisha :scratch:

      :wswrwb:

      I've heard people say that human beings are nearly all racist/prejudiced towards some one or some group etc.
      Allah will ask on the Day of Judgment: “Where are those who loved each other for the sake of My glory? Today, on a day when there is no shade but Mine, I shall shade them with My shade.”(Muslim)

        salaams to all

        thats quite true.
        its just that we have become programmed to think that racism is only when other races(esp whites) pick on blacks/africans due to their physical features or due to the stereotype that all of them are stupid & slow thinkers.
        theres racism by blacks/africans as well.
        im from South Africa & now with the black govt ruling the country- you see open/clear racism by blacks who feel that since they were deprived in the past- everything is theirs for the taking.
        if you have to be served by them in a govt building, you LOTS of sabr as some of them have somehow developed a superiority complex:
        they think they are "all that" although most really are just lazy &/or incompetent. they will take their own sweet time to do anything- the people of other races who work there, do twice as much in half the time it takes for these "geniuses" to do anything.

        i suppose some might say that what i just said is also racist- but you dont know what i see on an almost daily basis.

        and Allah ta'ala knows best
        jazakallah
