I am not racist

 

Following Canandian politics I find myself longing for simpler times. It seems to me that Canadian politicians are using race and religion to divide the nation rather than to bring Canadians together. Multiculturalism is the new buzz word while the Canada that I know and love has always been multicultural. Let me explain. I was born in Vancouver Canada, in the spring of 1970. My father was an American that came to Canada as a Vietnam draft dodger. He was Native American/Dutch. He met my mother who was English/Irish decent, but a 3rd generation Canadian. They were poor so we grew up poor. My mother was mentally ill and my my father beat her often. I didn’t know this so called white entitement because I didn’t get any of it. I was what would be called white trash and a hodgepodge of white trash given my Native American Heritage and white mix. I never knew special treatment, but I did see it given to other kids at school who’s parents had money. I remember in grade 5, when I was living in Langely BC; my male grade 5 teacher took the class to the Parliament buildings in Victoria BC. I loved politics and wanted to go with the favored rich kids to watch the house debating but my teacher was only allowed to bring in 5 kids. He choose all the kids from wealthy parents and when I complained because I knew I was smarter than them, he said to me ” Gracie they have a chance at being able to do this as adults because of thier upbringing. You do not and so thats why I chose them.” my entire life has pretty much been set by that tone. Everything I have in my life has been due to hardwork, struggle and saving every penny. I guess I could of had sugar daddies but my self respect and diginity could of never allowed me. Something in my spirit just will not let me sell out.

Anyways, I grew up in Langely and Surrey BC Canada until I was 13. I really related to Sesame Street and of course grew up on it; my neighbourhood was very multicultural and at the time, as far as I remember the government wasn’t forcing other religions or scaring people into thinking every other culture and race was out to get them. I had Greek families, Iranian, Scottish, Italian, African American, mixed race families and East Indian. Through my Grandfather I also had Native American friends and Families. It just never occured to me to be racist or to be afraid of other races. Maybe it was because the families I knew from other cultures, practiced their homeland’s culture and were also very grateful to be in Canada, to be apart of Canadian culture. I remember my Greek friends dad telling me how much he dreamed of Canada and it’s culture before he came to Canada. Yet we see our government today expressing that Canada has no real culture of it’s own so we need to adapt to outside cultures. The reality is that Canadian culture is both multicultural and Canadiana. Obviously the government has stopped working for the people as it is pitting the people against eachother rather than celibrating our diffences and similarities towards coexisting. The government and the media working for the government seems to have an agenda over the people not for the people. And the government is working to place religion into laws to further divide the peole to control the people. I am not saying racism doesn’t exist; of course it does as does privilege but privilege knows no race or colour more than it runs by personal wealth and social status, or so it seems by my personal experiences.

The picture in this post was taken by my parents at my 6th birthday party. The little girl with me was a freshly immigrated East Indian Sikh; her dad wore the big turan so thats how I know now. As a kid I didn’t know or care. Her name was Sandeep but she let me call her Sandy for short. We met on the playground; the first day of grade one. She didn’t speak any english yet; she was very tall and big for her age so the kids had started to bully her. She came running around the side of the school.. running from the kids. I saw her by the big tree, she had snot running down her face, her face was stained with dirt and tears. When she got closer I could see she had a bloody nose and a bleeding lip. Just than a group of kids came around the corner to pelt her with pinecones and rocks. My big sister was with me as I sprang to action and blocked her with my body so they would stop, they hit me too; but my sister ran to get a teacher. We both got beat up pretty bad before the teacher came. The next thing I remember I was waiting with her in the office for our parents to arrive. He mother and father cryed when they saw her. They cupped her face and kissed all the bruises. When my mom came they thanked her and me. I was told I was their second daughter. Turned out they lived just down the street. Our mothers became friends and we played at eachother’s homes. They were very poor too. My mom showed her mother all the best places to shop and where all the best playgrounds were.

I remember one thing all the mothers of all the nationalities had in common down our road and in our neighbourhood; that was domestic violence. That is one thing that hasn’t changed since the 1970s. It really doesn’t matter what race, culture, wealth or social status women and their children come from .. their common denominator is domestic and sexual violence towards women and girls. Maybe if the Canadian government cut the shit; and stopped with the fake feminism; fake because it gives religion power over women in the name of diveristy.. just than, maybe we would see some progress for all of humanity..

So how do I end this post? How do I wrap it up from here? I guess the only thing that is going to save the people from the government ruling over the people by dividing the people, is for the people to see what we all do have in common vs what divides us. If you are a true Canadian or if you want to be a true Canadian than you must want and fight for everyone equally and we have to stop putting political and religious ideologies ahead of humanity. After all the religion, and gender separation we all bleed red and cry wet tears.. unlike the governments crocodile tears. Lets not be divided by rhetoric that serves the true privileged .. the elite.

Islamophobia M103 – How religious freedom goes against equal rights and women’s rights

 

 

” Women are treated more equally in some countries that are atheistic or where governments are strictly separated from religion” ~ Jimmy Carter

The three of the biggest world religions, the Abrahamic religions  ( Judaism, Christianity and Islam ) preach of a male god that has given the power to men over women. By these preachings women have become second class citizens the world over. In these teachings it is believed that women are the cause of the original sin, this sin inflicted onto Adam by Eve’s seduction or fall to temptation. And so we see the root of the evil placed onto women, their bodies and their sexuality. Women are constantly being judged by man for his lack of selfcontrol. Religion is and has been a catalyst towards creating culture and culture towards creating traditions. We are a world that traditionally abuses women and girls in the name of religious freedom.

HOW CAN RELIGION BE A HUMAN RIGHT WHEN IT GOES AGAIST HUMAN RIGHTS?

Religious scipture, dogmas, and ideologies go against the human rights towards sexual freedom for mainly women and gays

The Canadian bill M103; if it becomes a law or if it is even entertained as religious bigotry towards questioning religion will set a tradition, a culture, a precedence towards the merger of Govenment and religion and by that the death of freedom of expression. IF RELIGION IS NOT DEBATED TOWARDS REFORMING IT ,  HUMAN RIGHTS WILL BE OBLITERATED FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. If we deny sexual freedom by allowing sexual repression into the government than women’s rights will be turned back 200 years.

Women and men newly immigrated from countries that are dominated by religious extremism will more than likely find it very difficult to let go of their cultural and religious practices based on these religious fundamentalisms.

But my point is this if religion teaches men that they are above women, and religions create culture and traditions that are then settled into a culure to polute it with inequalites;  how then can it be put into to feminism as feminism is about women’s equality?

The answer is; it cannot. Religion without proper reformation and mediation cannot bring us towards becoming a modern civilization. We will keep waring, we will keep repressing each other in the name of the god and the dogma of that god. We will never come to true diversity, we will never experience true social justice, and we will never become a global community that is fair and just under the umbrella of these patriachal religions, that places government and spiritual control in the hands of men by placing women under men.

Right now the Liberal Government is pushing globalization and global citizenship or a world government by the union of councils like The Unitied Nations. The elite did this with the use of a patriachal religions back in 325 AD;  Constantine The Great united the Roman Empire by uniting religions but he gained control over his empire by denying female gods and placing male gods over the people; by placing sexual shame onto women; over half of society, he used men in his empire to oppress women for him. By the oppression of women he gave men a spureriority to repress the women of the empire for him. By repressing and abusing their own women they were actually abusing themselves by the false hierchy over them becoming more and more elite above them by the subterfuge. By the use of religion over the masses the worlds oldest elitist families have been steadily gaining over the average citizen. That is why the bigotry and hate in religion has not been reformed to this date as it is the deceit, deception, guile and cunning from the upper class to keep the lower classes lower by keeping the religious wars going; they steal and cheat from the common people.

IF A ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT AND A ONE WORLD RELIGION WERE TO FORM TODAY UNDER GLOBALIZATIN AND GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP, WOMEN’S RIGHTS WOULD BE DESTROYED BY RELIGION

To this day we are seeing multicultulism being the term used towards breaking down borders and reforming governments towards becoming a one world governmen through the UN to unite the world under one umbrella for the elites to take total control of the masses. We know from history that absolute power corrupts absolutly. With religion still in the bronze age; humanity will revert back towards more barbarism in the name of mass conformity.

In order for true democracy to take up root we must root out the darkness within the scriputres that are deep within all the worlds cultures and deep within us as individuals. We must be able to speak our truths and name our fears so that we can bring humanity and ourselves personally out of the darkness.

 

Embracing The Demon

Above is a video of Carl Jung.. he explains his theories about the archetypes and the human psyche.. I am using this video to support this post. Upon watching this video of Carl Jung, his theories supported what I had already reasoned within my own soul, and mind… it is that we have become our own worst enemy by suppressing the darkness within our own souls.

We have become a world wide society that has become deluded by our own lies..and the lie lives in the search for perfection and in the denial of reality..and reality is that there is no such thing as perfection.. on are search for perfection we have gone down the road that denies the sacred..because all that is sacred lives in the shadows of impending death. We seek to suppress aging, we seek to suppress love as we see it as weakness, we see being vulnerable as being imperfect..and so it is by not letting our vulnerability show we build emotional and mental blocks that keep other’s out of our hearts.

We live two lives..the very fake imperfect face that we show the world around us..this is the face we wear at church, to work, to the gym, anywhere when we are out in the public eye..and then we hide our true selves away in private..and this is were we fight our demons. Because we suppress our darkness it comes to us unconstrained in the wee hours of the night.. it comes to us eventually in mental breakdowns.. it comes to us in full on addictions..addictions that we then hide and suppress further.

We then demand of our leaders that they fit the social conditioning of the personification of their position.. we insist that they hold up the mask… we insist that their mask be even more perfect than our own..so that we may feel safe in worshiping this perfection in them..and when they slip.. when their true humanity is expressed by mistake or with intention ..we are relentless in judging them for letting us down with there very human qualities.

We have become a very neurotic society–neurotic-emotionally disturbed, mentally ill, irrational, unstable,paranoid,anxious, obsessive, compulsive,dysfunctional, twisted and warped..because we just can not let go of what we feel is perfect..we are fed by the media.. perfection..we see perfection in our magazines.. every room spotless, everything new and unused, every person plastic and brushed up by computer imaging, we are taught to spend and we are taught that if we can not afford this perfect but very expensive lifestyle that we have failed.

We are fed shame; we are fed shame about sex, money, and our very thoughts are to be shamed if we do not fit into this perfect mold of the perfect citizen that behaves perfectly.. do you want to be cool? Do you want fame and fortune? Then follow along..follow the NEUROSIS – nervous disorder, personality disorder, emotional disorder, ” The result of a conflict between the ego and the id; THE PERSON IS AT WAR WITH HIMSELF” Sigmund Freud.

We are taught that it is shameful to speak out about our reality..to say ” I can’t afford it” To admit to having many lovers..to admit to questioning religion, Government or any social organization.. we are taught to shame and so we split in two.. we become two separate people.. the public face and the private face..and this leads to mental confusion and break down..

A breakdown .. means that when your suppressed material comes to the surface it can explode in your face.. it means that one can become so fearful and so delusional that they will go to the lengths of harming others to keep their delusion.

This is our society now; we are on the brink of our own self-destruction due to our suppression blowing up world wide by the average person and by the very suppressed leaders and Governments around the world. We are killing ourselves daily with creating the pollution that causes cancer and our other diseases.. we have made mass weapons of destruction that we have aimed and we are ready to fire on other counties that do not hold onto the same DELUSION as the other country aiming weapons on them..we are so suppressed..that Governments that call themselves a democracy are nothing more than a dictatorship. The suppression holds use captive right now..the world will have to face reality or face destruction..by our own doing.

It begins with every individual who refuses to follow the delusion. Who takes off the social mask.. it will be the leader that is willing to share and purge their human problems in public.. it will be the public who accepts and forgives such leaders and public figures..

It begins with you reading this now.. stop being a walking advertisement..stop getting into dept to impress others with your so called social standing that is really bullshit the bullshit that makes you bat-shit..that drives you crazy with worry and fear.

Be brave and be you.. no more two faces.. just be .
