The Racism Amongst Us

18

What is racism? prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism by an individual, community, or institution against a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a minority or marginalized. For the sake of brevity, I will like to narrow my point of discussion to racism among Africa, in Nigeria, South East to be precise. I happen to have travel to different eastern states in the country. And there is something that usually baffled me, about the discrimination of people from Ebonyi State. It All Started when I was serving in Anambra, there is this unkempt woman that use to sell yam beside the road. People use to make jest of her calling her "Abakalaki woman" this name means so many things in south east here. It either you are dirty, behaving foolish etc. One day I went to my closet, I asked myself if we can hate our closest neighbor as much. What of our far away neighbor? "The Moment We begin To Value ourselves, Automatically People Will Begin To Value Us"
