Bigotry, inequality, and injustice are fueled by the drive to acquire and maintain economic, political, and social advantage-power. Even when race is not a factor brutal oppression exists. World history and current events confirm the truthfulness of the preceding  claim.  

 

Wherever humans are there are efforts by individuals and group(s) to exploit, marginalize, and subjugate others-women, children, the poor, old people, and those physically and or mentally challenged- who share the oppressor’s ethnicity .

If we humans fail to acknowledge and deal with the fact that oppression of one group by another is a universal human phenomenon, then systematic and systemic oppression will continue, and the gross a middle passage slave shipinjustices of the past, like the African Diaspora and Holocaust, are destined to be repeated.                                                                   

God help us all!

    Everything you said is so true! The sad thing is that very few people really understand this and so they can never fully relate to those who are oppressed. Keep up the good work I love reading your blog.
