Nigeria: The Return of the Unwanted Messiah

Normally, when the Messiah comes to the people, he is usually welcomed with euphoria, hope and positive expectations. Not so in Nigeria. No trumpet. No excitement.

Using Everyday “Reality” to Conceal Racism and Bigotry

Using Everyday “Reality” to Conceal Racism and Bigotry

We live in the world of dichotomy, where unnecessary attention is paid to issues like race, gender, religion and other ideological differences. More often than none, individuals create a “symbolic world,” which explains “realities” of our lives and why things are the way they are. To maintain power or dominance, we use this symbolic world as a presumed superior norm against which presumably inferior groups are tested and found lacking.

Both on the personal and interpersonal levels, we hardly can achieve much without peace. On the other hand, conflicts can lead to unnecessary destruction – personally and internationally.
