Modern Slavery

Slavery when you hear about it is something from the depths of the past. But it isn’t. In fact it is worse than ever. 

In every country slavery is still happening and happening to many people. There is an estimated 40 million people involved in slavery.  People are being taken from one country to another to work as slaves against their will. They are being sent away from their homes and families and most of them will never see their families again. This has to stop. This is a cruel evil act against humanity. No one with a heart would ever do such a dispicable act to another. This is humanity at its worse. 

Here in the UK unknown to the majority of the British public slavery is happening in every single city. People from abroad are being smuggled in by human and sex traffick gangs and sold as slaves and forced to live and work in poor conditions. The majority of people being smuggled and sold as slaves are mainly women and children. 99% of people slaved in the sex trafficking business is women and girls. 

How can we allow this suffering and torture happen to children?  How we can allow them to face such a fate?  Children being exploited as labourers and workers. Forced to work long hours on farmlands and doing heavy lifting and hardwork.  Some children are forced into marriages. We must stop this. They deserve a proper chance in life and a proper childhood. 

This is a brief story of a man in Niger

“I was never treated like a human being, but instead I was treated like a machine, or a donkey that had to be beaten to make it work harder. Beatings and verbal abuse were routine for me.”

Tatinatt, former slave in Niger

Imagine if it was you. You are in your homeland. You live with family and see them often. They love and care for you and you care for them. Then one day it all changes. You are kidnapped by a gang and taken away from everything you love. You are taken far away to a land you do not know and sold as a possession. Your livimg conditions and treatment is poor and you are beaten as punishment. You are made to do jobs no one else would want to do by choice and sleep in physical ropes. If not physical chains then your soul is chained. Imagine the fear and fright knowing you wont see your family again. You are working long difficult hours doing difficult chores. There is no human rights for you. They no longer apply. You are at the mercy of your ‘owners’. Can you imagine such a terror? I am sure most of us have seen the film taken and get the kind of idea of what is happening to many girls and women. 

This is a common crime which faces mainly women and children being smuggled round the world and raped, tortured and sold as possessions. They are being sent away for money far away. They are treated disgusting. Locked in rooms and made to sleep on basically next to nothing. They are controlled and owned.  They will never feel freedom again. 

Many Young girls are used as sex slaves in the sex trafficking industry. They are forced against their will to commit indecent acts with many men in one day. They are often drugged and sedated and sold as nothing to anyone, These are peoples daughters. These are peoples sisters. Just like your own daughters and sisters. Men when you watch sex videos and images on your devices of naked girls etc which you enjoy how do you know these girls are not being forced to do these images and videos for your pleasure to make another man money? You could be enjoying watching slavery taking place instead. Not all the girls are there by free will. You could be funding sexual slavery. 

This has been happening all through human history. We all thought slavery was abolished but it hasn’t and never has been. The people who are being taken as slaves are just people being taken from their homeland. We all know the story of the poor African Americans in history taken to America and enslaved for 100s of years. They are just people and deserve to be free. 

Slavery exists on many forms it has just become so the normal we choose to accept it as the normal. How many of us work long hard hours and at the end of it get little back in return? How many of us are taxed so greatly we are left with not alot to show for the work we have done?  We work hard and are left with not alot at the end of the day. Does your job and effort reflect the pay you get honestly?  Do you ever feel like a slave or a prisoner working hard for others who dont appreciate it?  We have all become slaves in society and only a select few benefit from it. How many of us are in debt because we needed help to pay the bills then have to work longer hours and weekends and give up all your free time to pay a debt back?  This is slavery which most of us face without realizing. Your life belongs to them who you are in debt. 

Have you ever wondered who makes the clothes you wear? Have you ever wondered how much they got paid and how many hours they worked to make them? In places in Asia I am aware there are people working long hours for next to nothing money for companies who supply the West with toys and clothes and equipment. Here this is a bleak life for them as they come away with nothing to show for such hardship. But for them the hardship is normal. Companies in UK are moving there operation centres abroad to employ cheap labour. In other words they are saving money but making people work harder for less expense to them. 

We all live somewhere. We may all think we might live in a nice area but no one truly knows what is happening behind closed doors. Have you ever seen or noticed unusual behaviour of people?  As we dont realize slavery still exists we dont look for the signs that someone might be a victim. 

When will mankind open its eyes to the suffering of the world?  When will it stop?  If we all want to make a change this can happen. The core majority of people in this world are good people. They possess heart and soul and dreams same as anyone else. They want love and peace and family. This is humanity. This is where the beauty is. Lets make this beauty win through and humanity conquer all. 

May humanity win through in the end. May all human hearts be free.

The racist truth

To this very day sadly racism still exists. How can we as intelligent people possibly judge others by the colour of their skin and believe others are subhuman by their race? 

Everybody is born equal,  we all deserve to be treated equal and treated with respect. Just because people are of a different race doesn’t mean they dont have a heart and a soul and dreams like anyone else?  

We are all born by the miracle of life. It is a miracle we all have breath,  it is a miracle we all are alive together today because life hangs by a thread even before our conception. We are all born miraculously to this beautiful world together at this time so lets share it and enjoy and love everyone we meet equally. No one is better than anyone else. 

The world of racism is primitive and stupid. So many people are racist to others just on their appearance. Some countries are even racist to each other based on their skin colour and place them in class systems. That is unintelligent and uneducated. 

Latin people are often treated badly and have negative views on them but the majority of them are beautiful people. The majority of the people are no different to yourself and want the same dreams and life as you. Do they deserve to be trodden on just because of a different skin colour?

The hatred some people have towards black people is terrible. Do people not understand that we all have african roots?  This is true whether you like it or not. Within your blood stream and within your ancestral history is Africa. They are apart of you and you are apart of them. We all come from the same original beautiful source. 

Black people are beautiful people too. They are talented people as well and have just as much right to be treated equal as anyone else. They want homes and love and happiness and family. To keep their family safe and free and not be disliked simply on their skin colour. They should be liked for their personality. 

Would skin colour matter if you had been born blind?  All you would know then is the wonderful personality before you. The heart and soul and beauty of the person before you. You should instead be blind to their skin colour and see just heart and soul. This is where the person is. This is who they are. Know them for that instead and the world will be a beautiful place. 

Beauty exists within all races and all people. No race is better than the other. We can all find love in other races and other people. Love exists everywhere within us all. 

  • All mankind has African roots whether you like it or not
  • White people are the true ‘coloured’ people as they have a variety of hair and eye colours. 
  • In the universe there is an equal and opposite to everything. Male is equal and opposite to female,  black is equal and opposite to white. 
  • We are all the same under the top layer of skin. 
  • America is a continent from Canada downwards not just one country

I know a story of a black girl in USA. She is of African American descent and has lived in USA her whole life. She met a white guy.  They fell in love and she became his girlfriend. But his family didn’t like the fact that she was black and never accepted her. They didn’t want to know her or like her. They never cared for who she was or her personality. They judged her on the colour of her skin and she was left deeply upset and broken hearted when he chose his family over her and never protected her or her feelings. The relationship ended and it ended badly for her. Would you of liked it if this had happened to you because of your skin? 

If having a girlfriend of another race and people were cruel to her I would protect her till the death. Because I will know the person that she is. I wouldnt speak to them people again family or not. If they want to know me and want me to be happy they shall support me and my wishes and who I love. 

How can anyone not realize that they are people too?  They didn’t ask to be took as slaves to other countries. It was other people from other countries who took them there. They should accept them and allow them to be free. Have they not suffered enough in history already?  They have just as much right to be where they are as much as anyone else. They share this planet as well. 

Can you honestly say this man isn’t equal to you when hes the greatest of all time? 

I believe racism can be eradicated through education. I dont believe white supremacists or klu klux klan have a leg to stand on against real people. Their arguments are weak and flawed. They are as much immigrants in America as African Americans. They both should be equal and treated same and respected and enjoy their country peacefully. The land of oppurtunity should be for all. 

Would you say Whitney Houston isn’t equal to you because of her skin?  Is Michael Jackson not as capable as you because of his skin? 

The African American culture is a beautiful culture if you pay attention to it. It isn’t a culture which has turned up somewhere and slowly invading another culture it was a culture which was taken to America in history and the people who possess it should be proud and have a right to enjoy it. This is their history. It possessed amazing arts and dance and foods. The world who view the people and culture negatively need to open their eyes to wonder. 

 

I can understand in USA why African American people refer to themselves as this. I once questioned it as I didn’t understand and someone was kind enough to explain it. Obviously African Americans refer to themselves as this as they are proud of their roots. They in history were brought to a country as slaves against their will in a continent that doesn’t want them over long periods of time in history.  Why would they just want to be classed as Americans when they are not wanted on that continent? They are living in a world where they are made to feel safe hate and dislike for no reason.

The Pan-African flag represents all the African people around the world that were not born on the continent of Africa due to slavery. It strengthens, unites, recognizes that they are of African descent and should be proud of that.

African Americans all through their American history going back 300 years were enslaved and used as maids and slaves and ‘help’ in peoples homes right up until the civil rights movements in the 1960s. They endured such hardship. But within them is such capabilities and ambitions and dreams and they should be allowed to flourish and be free and allowed to accomplish a life of their own. Within them is great people. 

This picture above is beautiful. There is beauty in all races and in all people. Beauty is through all of mankind in all nature. If she was to come to you as an angel would you judge her for her skin colour? 

When I was a child I grew up with a black girl. She was a much better singer, dancer,  athlete and gymnast than me. She was very good at it all. She was more than equal to me. If anything I wasn’t equal to her.  I admired her abilities and wish I had the same. 
If you look at the modern world. The best athletes and powerful singers are black people. They have their own amazing abilities which you have to accept and admire. 

If I was stood on a field and there was lots of white supremacists on one side and one black friend on the other and I had to choose… I would definately choose my black friend whatever their race as they are my friend. Friends come in all shapes,  races and sizes. People can be friends from different sides of the globes.

I think white people are beautiful, I think Black people are beautiful, Asian people are beautiful, Latin people are beautiful,  Arabic people are beautiful,  all races possess beauty. This is how God made us all and we must be proud of who we are. 

We was all created by God equally and born to this world equally. We was created and born to be mankind together as one beautiful race in this beautiful natural world. No religious book or word of God States hatred to another race. We all come from the same mother in history. We are all the same under the top layer of skin. We are all amazing and miraculous creations. God and the angels would never judge us by skin on the paradise to heaven so why should we as people do so?  It is not for us to judge. 

We all have good qualities and abilities and should be judged on individual people and our personalities. Imagine if the world came together as one. Imagine what we could achieve together as one mankind all equal together. What a beautiful world.. 
The colour of someones skin will never in my eyes blind me to a beautiful heart….
