“Our true nationality is mankind”. No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, his background or his religion. People learn to hate and if they can learn to hate, they can also be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
The racist attitude to judge people on their caste, creed and colour is still witnessed these days. It is indeed shameful to see racist incidents present in society.
Why do we fail to understand or remember that there is a lot more beyond skin colour? The only thing that matters is talent, skill, positive thinking, the attitude of the person.
With social media dominating the world, people get to express their own opinions. But at times, netizens come up with comments which are deemed contrary to the spirit of human values.
We have come across people shaming or trolling every second person for their posts on social media. Be it right or wrong reason, some people still find a reason to troll them. From body shaming to talking about their skin colour, it has been a never-ending story.
We all might have seen a picture of a couple that was doing rounds on social media and people were openly trolling the guy for his skin colour. The man was targeted by all social media platforms without even knowing his reality.
But later when people on social media learnt about the reality of the guy, they regretted trolling him just for the sake of skin colour.

We shouldn’t judge a person on the basis of his caste, colour or religion. A person should be judged only on the basis of the good or bad work s/he has done. All those who abused and trolled Atlee Kumar are a disgrace to the nation because Atlee Kumar is one of the most respected young artists in the country and also touched the pinnacle of success in his career.
We live in a globally connected world and racism should be a thing of past. “Achievement has no colours”. Let’s practice motivation and love, and not discrimination and hate. Parents, teachers should educate their children about being human in the first place.
