Racism is a core problem - from the start of the mankind. As a victim or as the culprit who causes it, we saw it. Differentiating someone for her skin color, race, ethnicity, beliefs, orientation, choice, inability is the worst part of human story you can play on. Sometimes the criminal lives in a dream world. They think this is how the world should go but one thing they are unable to understand that may be they are the one who should be judged or in a far extent being eliminated from everything. I always believe anyone can go as far as she wants. The courage determines the success, not the skin color or ethnicity or language or religion. We start making blunder when we tag them together and make a decision from our mindset.
And in this case the affected people and media has a better role to play. You just can't expect the neighbor starts appreciating your daughter's merit unless you start doing it in your home first. Corporate world, once again play a dirty role here. As a person someone should show more maturity as well. Using a fairness cream would not make you loveable, would not make you confident, would not change the job chance, would not make you a good person. It is within you and within your reach. If you really think you are a beautiful person, start believing it. Don't come in front of the mirror and praise how fair and beautiful you are. Your behavior and seeing the world eventually shows that to others and in a subtle way - to you. Grow up, see the world, appreciate it and help developing an affectionate one - not the opposite.
