Negro? Asian? Zionist?

In today’s modern-day society, we still face conflicts and qualms due to the past, but in this modern era, must we still suffer from the ghosts of the past, or should we manumit ourselves from these chains which keep us imprisoned and stop us from moving forward.

In the present day, many people face this dilemma when they meet new people. What should we talk about and What topics should we avoid, and are certain words in our language outright derogatory and insulting, and should we refrain from using them? And can we even ask them why these words are offensive to them or not. The question I wish to raise is why are certain words considered so malicious, calumnious and insulting. The very words that are a part of our individual and cultural identity, the words that describe us, and the exact comments we should be proud of end up disparaging and offending us.

The word “Negro”, when translated to English, means Black. Why is it considered so discourteous to use this word which is among the most prominent and well known out of all the colours? It is known better than other colours such as sanguine and quercitron. In the same way, why should being called an Asian upset one’s feelings? It was the Asians who invented tea. They created the USB, which is globally used. It was also Asians who invented the arithmetic digit zero. It was an Asian man Shivkar Babuji Talpade who invented the aeroplane years before the Wright brothers. Like this, the Asian community has made a multitude of advancements in the global community. There are simply too many to recount in this article. The Zionists should not be criticized and insulted for their beliefs, for these very beliefs created an entire nation out of nothing.

These are the names of just a few famous people from all these three groups. These are famous men and women who are renowned throughout the world, and they are just the tip of the iceberg. Like them, there are millions of famous and successful people from these groups. So do you still consider being called A Negro, an Asian, and a Zionist is an abuse I don’t think so because it is praise, we must be proud of our heritage, for it makes us who we are, and we should not shy away from that because each of us is unique in our way.
