I am writing this post because I do really feel the urge to speak up for what’s going on in these days in Minneapolis.
We all read the news, and we’ve all seen the awful and shameful video and heard about the following death of George Floyd. RIP. And today the arrest of reporters and journalists!
We are in 2020 and honestly this is not acceptable. And not just in US. Everywhere.
I will never get tired repeating that science had proved it! We all belong to only ONE human RACE. I invite you to read the studies done by Luca Cavalli Sforza. Einstein also confirmed it. And we all should know it, but people, especially in United States still go on speaking about races! We are not dogs or horses! We are human beings, and as persons, science has proved it, studying our DNA and DNA differences that races do not exist! There is only ONE HUMAN RACE.
So I would take this occasion also to invite all you Americans to ask for the abolition of the word “races” and “race” from papers, any paper or documents. Because it is simply nonsense. We are all mixtures on this planet and you cannot divide people because of the color of their skin and shades of color or any other nonsense! Take for instance the example of Indila (Adila Sedraïa) the singer (I have her first album and it is stunning) she was born in Paris and she is of Algerian, Egyptian, Indian and Cambodian descent and she speaks French, English, Arabic and Hindi!
You cannot put people into cages and labels!
Millions of people cannot be idenitified in one specific nationality! Myself also going backward from my father side, I go back to Nice and France! So yes I am Italian but also belong the world. We all belong to this world! And the color of the skin is like the color of the hair or of the eyes. It means nothing, seriously, scientifically speaking.
And going backward and backward … I remind you that continents were attached. We all descend from the same group of people. This is science and hystory even if some people prefer to think otherwise.
So we must all condemn racism and any behaviour that is due to this shameful idea that some people are superior to others or better, or different … Wrong!
We are all equal on this planet and we all deserve same respect, and we do all have same dignity!
So condemning all forms of racisms I invite you to do the same.
Any discrimination is wrong. Remember this.
We all must build a world as Martin Luther King was dreaming, where character is what makes the difference, not the colour of the skin.
We are all equal. And we must apply this statement every day in our daily lives. Condemning all abuses, even just verbal abuses and offenses.
And also we must condemn violence.
Remeber, as Martin Luther King was saying: as darkness cannot fight darkness, and only light can do, we must oppose to racism love and equality and not another racism in the opposite way.
Let’s make this world a better place.
Starting from the “man in the mirror”. Ourselves. Let’s change anger into compassion. Hate into understanding. Violence into education and dialogue.
A big hug to you all.
Take care of yourself and always spread love, forgivness and compassion.
