Akala and British Xenophobia
Issues of race are much more insidious than the overt rhetoric that we see from extremist. To understand, one needs a larger sense of history, individual bias, and structural racism and privilege. A common tactic for severing empathy is to create a divide by dehumanizing people whom are different to ourselves. The moment we start dehumanizing people is a mandate for murder. We are creating a value system on life when we label people as less than. We have created different vocabulary and tolerance for actions of white people verses actions of people of color. Acts of violence and terrorism need to be looked at evenly.
