Ism and Chism Game

International racism/otherism/xenophobia is not just brute force.⁣ ⁣ It's pay gaps. ⁣ ⁣ It's ranking privileges based on your passport. ⁣ ⁣ It's having only bleaching creams and straightening hair products in your stores.⁣ ⁣ It's biased litigation. ⁣ It's the criminalization of immigration you profit from to thrive. ⁣ ⁣ It's baiting calls to officials towards people of certain hue in your building/hotel/resort you don't like simply due to the hue of their skin or the power of their nationality.⁣ ⁣ It's blackmailing and leaving notes in the apartments of those you don't want in your building or in your neighborhood when you feel their presence is bringing down the property's value. ⁣ ⁣ It's subtle. It's systemic. ⁣ And it is still a ***** problem. Just more finesse-able. ⁣ ⁣ The list is much longer. This is what broke my heart travelling around the world. The harsh reality that these isms do not only exist where I was born. These isms have been a pandemic across the world for eons.⁣ ⁣ Now we see the light. So, like Bob Marley wailed, stand up for your right.⁣ ⁣ Life is your right.🎶⁣ ⁣ Or like Billy Joel sang decades ago: We didn't start the fire🎶🔥⁣ ⁣ #thefoladora⁣ ⁣
