I don't even know why I even waste my time on this, but I had to get this off of my chest. Today I was involved in a facebook discussion. When I see something on Facebook and I don't agree with it, I respond. Today's topic was about black people having to go back to their country, because they only use 'our' kindness and generosity and don't work at all! Reason for this was because the poster of the message was insulted by a black man. I asked him if it wasn't better to identify him as a human being, instead of just his skin colour. He might have been an ass, but what's that to do with where he comes from?
Anyway, the following 6 hours was followed by a stream of abuse of not very intelligent people who claimed that "Holland is for Dutch people!" "They should adjust themselves!" "Fuck off!". They should all learn Dutch! It was not appreciated when I told them that their Dutch wasn't that proficient either. Furthermore, I was insulted many times because I simply asked for a clarification of their opinions. If you believe in something, then you should at least be able to explain why, right? Wrong. I was nothing but a bitch. How dare I be a smartass? I should just leave and never return again. You would think these people are 16/17 and in a rebellious phase. Wrong. These were adult women (and some men) with families of their own, who couldn't handle a mature discussion and resorted to insults.
What worries me the most is that these women have children. And these children will grow up learning that all people who are not white, are unworthy. And the more these people breed, the more new people will come into this world knowing only hate. There's enough hate already. There's enough misunderstanding already. Every day we are ripped apart even more because we only learned that it's wrong being different. If you don't belong to a certain group, you do not count. If you don't belong to a certain race, you have no right for equality. We pride ourselves in saying our country is liberal, but we're not. We pretend. We are just like we were in 1800, we only know how to hide it better. You won't get treated the same if you're black. You're disgusting if you're gay and if you look different than the rest of us, you're fucked.
Unfortunately, the majority of humanity consists of these kinds of people. And that's why we're fucked. Forget the apocalypse, all normal people will die out eventually and nothing but short-sighted idiots will be walking the Earth's surface.
I don't know if I want to have any children. What kind of world do we force them to live in? A world filled with nothing but fear and hate and judgement. And why? Because people refuse to think out of the box. They stick to what they know and everything else should just go away. That's wrong. We should open our eyes instead of keep being blinded by all we don't want to see. We're all here anyway. We live in the same world, in the same country or even in the same area. And just because you hate something because you don't understand it, doesn't mean it will go away if you keep harrassing it.
Maybe I'm too liberal. Maybe I believe in Fairy Tales. But maybe one day, we will all be able to forget the differences and move on as one.
Or else hope the aliens will accidentally blow us up before then.
