Amidst the already chaotic conditions of the current world, a specific incident in the United States has globally amplified the confusing clash between “all lives matter” and “some lives matter”. The conflicts of civilisational identity continue to burn human society with greater vigour than the deadly Covid-19 virus. Divisions based on race, colour, caste, status and ideologies were supposed to decrease with education and social progress. But it appears as though anger and hatred have only been further fuelled to result in looting, burning and organised spreading of hate-venom. There are classes of narcissistic people who derive pleasure in spreading violence and dissension by instigating division on the pretext of supporting the oppressed and downtrodden – while doing zilch for them. Awareness and true empowerment only take place with real education. By wisely distributing resources, we need to help the vulnerable stand on their own feet instead of becoming mere instruments in the hands of those with political agendas that strive to make careers out of slogan shouting and power hoarding in the name of compassion and “some lives matter” – all while provoking anger and revenge against “all lives matter”. The elitists who write, speak and actively participate to mobilise mobs for burning and looting, should be carefully observed to see how much they have tangibly done to support the less privileged. Fact is, many mainstream celebrities will show solidarity by tweeting, creating videos, protesting, writing and provoking fights. However, there is rarely any substantial investment towards the cause of building up real equality. The only action that aligns with these agendas is to cause anger and uproar within a vulnerable group, while never empowering them to transform. It benefits them to allow the victims to remain as victims and not turn into victors. Ambedkar and Martin Luther King Jr, both raised the issue of discrimination, expressed their dissatisfaction, even showed their anger – but never taught hate, violence, burning buildings, revenge and to stay as eternal victims. Those that are not taught to overcome their marginalised status become mobs exploitable by ambitious politicians, pseudo social scientists, and disruptive modernists. How did Krishna deal with such issues? Krishna, with his black skin, charms everyone; from the wealthiest merchants to ordinary peasants, nobody can resist the beauty of Krishna. He is worshipped by his followers in forms of beautiful black murtis all over the world – from Badrinath in the Himalayas to Balaji in Tirupati. His philosophy was not based on race but pure grace, the type of grace that is not demeaning, but rather helpful in discovering potential beyond human distinction.
