Racism is a bigger threat to

humanity than COVID-19


Racism:
Racism is the belief that a particular race is superior or
inferior to another, that a person’s social and moral
traits are predetermined by his or her inborn biological
characteristics. It is the belief that another person is less
than human — because of skin color, language, customs,
place of birth, or any factor that supposedly reveals the
basic nature of that person. So this discrimination has
influenced wars, slavery, the formation of nations, and
legal codes.
Moving towards my topic that how the racism is a bigger
threat to humanity than COVID-19 .lets us talk about the
COVID-19 which is called as the pandemic by the who,
why it is called as the pandemic because it is spreading
throughout the world without the discrimination of the
color, without creating the difference between the
superior and inferior peoples and without the difference
of races. this virus is killing the peoples throughout the
world but it is not a bigger threat to humanity because
one day it can be cured because scientists are trying to
make a vaccine against it and one day they will make a
vaccine and COVID-19 will be no more. But when we
talk about the racism it is started from the bigging of life
and it continues till today and it will be more severe in
coming days because there is creating the concepts of
black and white people and this concept surely destroy
the humanity because every person has the right to live
with freedom and get equal rights like the other people
on the planet. In 1903 du bios write in his book that, ‘the
biggest threat to the 20th century is the color lines”

Recently there was the big incidence of George Floyd's


death is an example of racism. The last words which are
spoken by the George Floyd to the policeman who was
putting his knee on George Floyd neck were that I can’t
breathe, I can’t breathe. and eventually became
unresponsive. This is not the only death of George
Floyds by the policeman. This is pointing towards the
death of all the black peoples who died in past due to
the brutality of the policeman and people are protesting
against this.
When the COVID-19 has come, Racism is getting more
fuels because peoples see that they are not getting
equal rights like the others are getting. A Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention report from April
highlighted 33% of hospitalized coronavirus patients are
black, compared to 18% of the residents in surrounding
areas.
When we see this ratio of COVID-19, we can estimate
that the blacks are not getting equal rights and facilities
as the white people are getting and thus we can say that
in COVID-19 racism is going to be more harmful.on
George Floyd's death, many peoples are going to protest
for getting justice and equalities to demolish the racism
from the society and thus this protest leads to spread
COVID-19 and thus racism and COVID-19 giving fuel to
each other to be more pandemic.
When we see china, they write down on doors of their
hotels are that black peoples are not allowed and when
they giving ads of washing machine they put the black
man in the washing machine and get a white Chinese
man and thus china is giving fuel to the racism in his
country.
People in America started a campaign to get their rights
called as the black lives matter.
Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an international human
rights movement, originating from within the African-
American community, which campaigns against violence
and systemic racism towards black people. Black lives
matter regularly holds protests speaking out
against police brutality and police killings of black
people, and broader issues such as racial profiling,
and racial inequality in the United States criminal justice
system.
If I would say Islam is the first religion that has
uprooted and objected such evils, it would not be a
mistake.
Islam protects honor. In Islam, insulting others or making
fun of them because of caste, creed, race, etc is not
permitted. Merciful Holy Prophet (PBUH) says: “Truly,
your blood, your property, and your honor are inviolable”
(Al-Bukhari). The life, property, and honor in an Islamic
state and Islamic concept are considered sacred
irrespective of your race and caste.
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “Your God is one and
your ancestor (Adam) is one. An Arab is not better than
a non-Arab and a non-Arab is not better than an Arab.
And a red (white tinged with red) person is not superior
to black and black is not better than red, except in
piety.” (Musnad Ahmad). Islam gives a clear message,
that God created human beings as equals, who are to
be distinguished from each other only based on faith
and piety and this categorical message eradicates the
concept of racism.
The solution to racism is that we should think beyond
the concepts of colors because all are the creation of
God and then who we are to talk about white and black
colors. In the Quran, this is openly written, “and hold
firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not
become divided.”
And thus I can say racism is the bigger threat than
COVID-19 because COVID-19 will end one day but
racism will not.
