Never before have we seen such racial animosity throughout the world. Racism is a socially-constructed disease of the mind that is caused by a specific form of ignorance.

Across the globe we suffer from irrational behaviour due to racist practises that have persisted for too long in vile and negative ways. Racism is evil and those who partake in it are colluding with the devil.
