What Is The Color Of Racism?

By Malinda Seneviratne –

‘Before you speak let your words pass through three gates.  At the first gate, ask yourself ‘is it true?’ At second, ask yourself ‘is it necessary?’ And at the third, ask yourself ‘is it kind?’ – Sufi saying.

Social media is for some a stress reliever. Facebook and Twitter are sounding boards for some and for others Agony Aunts or even shrinks.  That’s at the personal level. There is by definition a social element to it too of course.  That’s why there are groups, followers and followed on these sites.

Social media is not all that it is claimed to be and neither is it the nothing that others claim it to be.  Has its uses, has its pitfalls.  It steps in when mainstream media steps back and this is a good thing.  The flip side is that even as there are responsible posts where people don’t say ‘any old thing’ there are utterly irresponsible statements made without verification and without corroboration.  These are re-posted and re-tweeted as though it’s all fact.

It is argued that the lie gets called quite fast in social media. This is true.  It’s faster of course than in mainstream media such as newspapers.  On the other hand not everyone on Facebook and Twitter are actually listening to the counter-argument, there being enough people who dismiss any counter to believed ‘truth’ as conspiracy, lie, obfuscation etc.  Moreover, within ‘groups’ (of all ‘faiths’) the counterpoint is absent.

racism yelloBy and large the in-your-face commentator intent on thrusting his or her opinion down your throat is easily recognizable.  They win the day, most days, but sometimes one wonders if it is they that are mostly to blame for hardening of positions, the whipping up of racial hatred and the sweeping vilification of an entire collective for the crimes of a few.

Aluthgama’ generated horror and disgust, condemnation and fear, excuses and justification, accusation and counter-accusation.  There was also sanity.  There were the pragmatists who got down to the hard and not fashionable matter of providing relief to the displaced.  There were others who pleaded for restraint, patience and calm.  ‘It should not be allowed to spread, things should not get worse,’ they argued even as others were indulging in wild claims such as ‘It’s 1983 all over again’ not as warning (legitimate) but as fact (erroneous).

And quite reminiscent of the profile pictures that many picked up during the agitation by FUTA (Federation of University Teachers’ Associations) where the legend ‘6%’ became signature statement of position, many changed their profile picture to ‘Stand Against Racism’ or versions of this sentiment.  We will get to that presently.

Racism yellow greenThere was also an FB post with a link to John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’, that all time favorite of anti-war demonstrators and other peace activists who promote non-violence.  The lines are lovely: ‘Imagine there’s no countries, it isn’t hard to do; nothing to kill or die for and no religion too.’  What’s interesting, though, is that those who sing that song and spread the sentiment around aren’t putting their money where their mouths are.  There’s never been a note accompanying such posts of the following kind: ‘I hereby drop my religion, I will hereafter be faithless and I denounce country, race and all other identifiers of collectivity’.  So it is almost as though they want others to drop their religion while keeping their own faith.

Another, more subtle, version of the same hypocrisy was evident on FB.  There were people who changed their profile picture to an image of a hand with a tiny map of Sri Lanka in the middle.  It was the classic ‘No!’ sign, fingers spread out.  The caption was ‘Stand against racism’.  The trick is in the color.  The background was yellow, clearly the color associated with Buddhism and Buddhists.  What’s the subliminal message here?  Buddhists are racists (extremists, religious fundamentalists, what have you?)?

Racism whiteThere is blanket dismissal and vilification here of an entire collective.  It was picked up by many, Buddhists included, one has to assume more in innocence than with any conspiratorial intent.  It is doubtful that Muslims who put this image up were all thinking ‘Buddhists and only Buddhists are “racist”’.  But you can’t get around the assumptions embedded in the color-choice.  Not only are all Buddhists vilified, there is a simultaneous claim that Buddhists and Buddhists alone are to blame.  No one else. The facts on the ground rebel against this position.  No, it is not that Buddhists and Muslims are equally to blame, but no one is entirely blameless here.  Provocation and violence were not the preserve of ‘Buddhists’.  So is it that ‘Racism by Buddhists’ (shouldn’t it be religious intolerance and not ‘racism’?) is the only kind of ‘racism’ people are ready to object to?

Interestingly some who preferred the yellow-sign are also people who not too long ago said ‘don’t conflate LTTE and “Tamil”’ (even as they said ‘The LTTE is the sole-representative of the Tamil people’).  We see an easy slip from BBS to ‘Sinhala Buddhist’ and to ‘Sinhala Buddhist State’ and ‘Sinhala Buddhist hegemony’, almost like how ‘Buddhists’ were ready with petrol and matchbox to meet ‘stone-throw provocation’.  It’s a habit, then?

There’s sanity too, fortunately. Azmeer Mohamed had put up a ‘Stand against racism’ profile pic. It had yellow and it had green. Chameera Dedduwage has the same profile picture. That’s rising above it all.  One might objection to the proportional split considering the fact that it was the Muslims who had to bear the brunt of the violence – it would be a travesty of justice to say ‘both communities suffered’ when in fact what the Muslims suffered dwarfs what Buddhists did, but still, it’s better than the blanket dismissal of single-color (mis)representation.

There are no all-green signs, by the way.  There is nothing to stop anyone from going for a neutral background color.  White, for example.

But why quibble about a color, one might ask, when there are shops being burnt and when Muslims legitimately feel threatened?  Well, there’s no reason to go overboard in any direction. Whatever is done should help because the slightest slight can make things dramatically worse.

These are not easy times. Frayed tempers, perceived grievances, real threats and real fears are all elements that can cloud and blow away reason. This is the hour or the rumor-monger. This is the hour of the extremist. This is the hour of the passionate. This is therefore the hour when reason must ‘come to the party’. Big time. And there has to be reason in both the big and the small.  A spark, after all, is not of gigantic proportion.

Azmeer Mohamed gives a clue. He posted the Sufi saying quoted above. Azmeer Mohamed asks himself ‘is it true, necessary and kind?’ It cannot hurt to follow his example.

    I admit its speculation. I have no proof. Although my hunches are mostly correct.

    Gnanasara is here not to promote but to undermine Buddhism. He is a modern day Devadatta. He will soon take over control of the Maha sangha. Asgiriya Maha Nayake along with the other Nikaya’s will be left in the lurch.

    Mark my words, once taken over he will do everything possible to bring Buddhism into disrepute. If you have any regard for Buddhism nip this in the bud now.

      Malinda Seneviratne –

      What Is The Color Of Racism?

      The Correct Question to ask is:

      What Is The Color Of SINHALA BUDDHIST Racism?

      Yellow and Saffron colored.

      The Proof and support is given below.

      Sri Lankan Buddhists please stop racism in sri lanka –

      Vibhushana, Your nip in the bud pharase I doubt since its a bit too late. Gandaasara has crossed the line already is my hunch. Agree totally with the rest you said.

      Buddhism is in danger, will be replaced with a new philosophy. Gandasara is paring up with Hindus now in order in order to please PM Modi & BJP. Its easy as well with racists like Subramaniam Swami, who is a Rajapaksa sympathizer.

      BBS has been allegedly funded by Norway based LTTE diaspora to carry out unrest in the country.

      Champika is chanting an unknown Jihad manthra. There is no Jihad here in the country. If there was one they cannot escape our Buddhi Anshaya. Its all blatant lies.
      What the country badly need is a unified opposition front. UNP JVP & CBK mustn’t fool each other anymore. Gandasara isn’t the real threat. The real cancer is this family. Must erase this family from politics for good.

    Malaysia! You know how they avoided racism and riots? Mahathir, the former prime minster,(whose father is Indian Muslim and mother is Malaysian Malay), told the truth. He said outright, “Ayyoh, our Malay people are a bit slow and stupid. We have to be patient” And the Malays accepted it (a bit shamefacedly maybe, but the Malay Mullahs did not incite trouble and perpetuate myths of racial superiority, (although they are a-plenty in their fairy tale books). The local people left all honor to their Islamic religion, and let the minorities to do all the other hard work. Malay hierarchy formed a culture of almost zero migration to the West.

        SB race! Now they can’t be thinking that they are a superior race or anything. True, they are special to Sri Lanka, but Malays are special to Malaysia. Congolese, to Congo, and Amazonians to the Amazon.

        We all respect the great SB race as the long-time inheritors of SL (sorry Native Vadda…………we respect you too, but you are stone-age………… besides being a majority SB’s has mostly moved with the times are attempting to function in the global arena, albeit also retaining their culture and heritage).

        But let’s face it: SB’s cannot feel that this makes them racial superior to anybody else. Why if they think this, they are then even worse than the German-Nazis. German-Nazis became such because of the influx of Jews escaping the pogroms of the Russians. Previously, Germans revered their learned Jews and many held high positions in their cities. However, in Sri Lanka, there is no such influx of minorities coming in- in fact most are moving out. Therefore, if SB’s are taught to think they are superior, that is wrong mode of thinking in the interests of Sri Lanka and the majority SB’s. It is very detrimental, especially because foreign powers are watching.

        Let’s see how SB came about. Vijaya and Mahanama came down to Sri Lanka with religion, script and language from North India. 500 N. Indian persons mixed with about 2- million indigenous inhabitants. The modern result feel they have some superiority because, compared to India, they were able to understand Buddhism. However, this hardly shows any higher intellect as compared to other races. I will explain:

        Indians were already ingrained in Hinduism. Hinduism had its own Vedic texts and teachers. So Buddhism was impossible to have a foothold there. Now it comes down to Sri Lanka. What religion were the Lankan dwellers then? If they were Tamil , they would have been Hindus, and then Buddhism would not have had such a hold. But they were not (proof that there were no Tamil Hindus in Sri lanka at the time of Vijaya and Mahanama) . Native people did not have any well-established religion with scripts and other structures. If Islam had first come in its entire establishment, Islam would have taken hold. If Christianity had come to Lanka, Christianity would have taken hold in shock and awe by the natives.

        But as it is, it was Buddhism that came in with its entire establishment from North India. Therefore, it was no great feat of the Sinhala Buddhist to accept Buddhism. SB are the product of the chronology of time as all other races and religions are. No superiority or inferiority, merely autochthonous.

      Indeed, Malays at that time (1970’s) were not offended at all. They honored their peaceful culture and Islamic faith, and knew that Allah created them uniquely to be the unanimous and peace-loving persons away from the mad-white race that had colonized them, and the alien Indians who invaded their shores to work.

      However, they felt that they had to learn to know these cultures, integrate with them, and move into modern society without compromising their own essence.

      In fact, any sign of Arabian culture and Islamaic-Jihadists are dealt with swiftly.

      Nowadays, Malaysian Malays are considered the most advanced in the world, while our Sinhala Buddhists, on the other hand, are mired down with resentful madness.

    The caption was ‘Stand against racism’. The trick is in the color. The background was yellow, clearly the color associated with Buddhism and Buddhists. What’s the subliminal message here? Buddhists are racists (extremists, religious fundamentalists, what have you?)?

    That is the author’s interpretation. It could also mean that Buddhists (colour yellow) are against racism. Stereotyping does happen in this society (all Tamils are LTTE, all MUslims are conniving traders, all Buddhists support BBS etc etc) but I believe that many people on social media do not conflate the violence with Buddhism,or Buddhists, just with a group of BBS monks (and their organisation) who are self avowed representatives of Buddhism….

    The author is free to present his views.. but there could be other interpretations, and in the face of naked violence, for some people social media is the only outlet to vent their protest and their frustration.. respect…

    More than the external background it is the colour in our minds. A little soul searching would help clear any discriminatory attitude. After all we are black, brown, yellow or white even if we cover our nakedness with a colour. We all look the same although we possess different ideas and beliefs. We all have the same needs and desires although we attack and belittle each other. Life is too precious to hurt or destroy even if it belongs to another.

    I don’t know about the colour but the face is yours (next to the venerable Gnanasara and Ranawaka).

    Before you monopolisethe colour yellow,i suggest you read the symbolism of colours in our national flag, which too is racist but let’s leave that for another occasion.

    The colour yellow which is employed in the border around the flag symbolises all the other communities such as the burghersand possibly Malays not the buddhists or the Sinhalese.
    Gold and maroon are the colours associated with Sinhalese and buddhists not yellow.

    For a person who is being so particular it is strange that he missed it. Or is it? The aim of insidious is to diffuse the blame andbring the muslims in. Just as his previous article was to exculpate the defence secretary and president and pin the blame on the public servant, this article is an attempt to say the muslims were to be blamed too.The aim is to lessen the severity of the crime and the face that it was preplanned and directed by the state apparatus.by blaming both sides he is able to say that this was just two groups that got carried away. A bar fight not a pogrom. Erroll insidious you may fool the Gratien awards committee but not the readers of Colombo telegraph.

    What a shame. The masses are all being taken for a ride en masse, through this diet of bad monk behavior, to keep the people glued to what will happen next. This is being done to cause a hypnotic effect for them to forget their own burdens and hardships, thus deflect their anger against a innocent minority Muslims, who have no hand to their circumstances whatsoever. They have no Tamil LTTE bogey to flog anymore, so now they turn it on the Muslims. So long as the Muslims don’t get rattled by this drama, they will deffinitely come out winners. The government which foisted this will only then start licking their wounds.

      Muhandiram,

      Gota has many undercover secret service agents who are acting behind the scene. Many work as three wheel owners, security guards including Rakna Lanka security agency, attendants,traffic policemen etc.

      Many Temples are the gathering and organizing centers. They are where the planning and executions are carried out.

      BBS Gnanasara, JHU, Rawaya final game plan is to capture Kandy Dalaga Maligawa. That is their Jack pot where enormous amount of Money, Gold, artifacts, lands, buildings and over 5 million Sinhala Buddhist Vote base is located. Once captured they get free access to all of these. Until the time comes, Rajapakses are duping those preletes with enormous amount of money,gifts, duty free cars,special foreign trips etc,are given free of charge.

      Rajapakse BBS JHU with the help of armed forces will give them enough power to rule Sri Lanka for ever. But this could also back fire at them.

      Only option opposition has is to unite all opposition parties and fight against this dictators and their terror cult by educating the public. Bring in UNHRC investigators on War crimes, crimes against humanity and Muslim community, Rathupaswela, Katunayake, murdered Prison inmates etc,etc.

      It’s time to save Sri Lanka from Rajapakse looters, dictators, thugs and murderers.

    Yellow for Buddhists, Orange for Hindus, Green for Muslims, Blue for Christians, etc etc etc What about those of us who are colour blind?

    The Buddhist flag, approved by committee, is represented by
    Blue (Nīla): Loving kindness, peace and universal compassion
    Yellow (Pīta): The Middle Path – avoiding extremes, emptiness
    Red (Lohita): The blessings of practice – achievement, wisdom, virtue, fortune and dignity
    White (Odāta): The purity of Dharma – leading to liberation, outside of time or space
    Orange (Manjesta): The Buddha’s teachings – wisdom

    and yet one gets the feeling that in the current climate all the noble depictions of these colours are smudged and simply represent the unacceptable face of intolerance.

    Let the like minded take to the streets and scream NO to the curse of intolerance that has once more descended on our blessed island paradise.

      They do not attack fellow man based on unproven Myths.

      They do not attack Places of Worship of the Myth followers.

    Hoi Malinda
    There is no need to try to over-analyse whether a particular colour used in a symbolic image was more buddhist than mormon (in a manner of speaking)…. the truth is there for all to see in the shape of that over-fed (and probably over-sexed but deprived) racist piece of shite Gandasaara stoking the fire of racism. He would have been dealt with by the full and unbridled force of the law in an alternate universe of common sense and good governance (your favourite wet-dreamland) but wasn’t.

    Why was nothing done to hold him accountable?
    Why is the hierarchy of the government silent (except for condemning the ‘mara hartal’)?
    Why is the hierarchy of the clergy silent?
    Why is the opposition silent?
    Why do senior police personnel lie through their teeth?

    And finally, why don’t you stop your cheap diversionary tactics and bring back some of the lost honour this country and your alma mater has endured through your cheap tricks and blind support for everything that is wrong in this wonder of Asia?

    Shame on you.

    The recent bouts in Beruwala in a clear indication that there are two main colours at present.

    These were vividly displayed in Athuthgama, Panadura Mawanella and even Bakuma (??) with Azath sally in the Yellow Corner and the brain dead Bikku in the Green corner.

    In fact the Bikku is so pro Western in his own admission that he must be wearing Union Jack under pants and using Star Spangled bath Towels after his hectic work schedule..

    And who is collecting the gate?.

    None other than the chief mourner of the Muslim victims and one time LTTE supporting Leader who wanted the Muslims under his wings after Nanthikadal.

    Azath Sally who is an avowed supporter who wants to live under the Vellalas as he speaks the same dialect, has learned the craft of Hartals too.

    Mr Sambnadan who announced to the public after Nanthikadal, that he will be doing hartals all over the NE if he doesn’t get his mini Eelaam, must have given Azaath a crash course.

    NOT ALL the Sinhalese are “racist”’.
    BUT MAJORITY of Sinhala Budist were / are Voting for those who are “racist”. By that way they too are supporting ‘Racism by Buddhists’. This was evident from the day we got freedom from British.

    I want to laugh loud when I see this. The color of the racism is the same color you see everything, everywhere in your eyes. We all know who are the creators of this present racism. It was non other than JHU. (especially Champika ranawaka, You and Aturaliye Rathana.Then only others like Udaya Gammanpila, Nishantha warnasinghe, MR, GR , Gnasara, Wimal weerawansa came into this scene.) We know by the facts and evidence to prove.) You have a agenda to bring extremists in to power. Just imagine how if Gota, Champika or Gnasara becomes president of the country. It is worse than MR now. That will be the end of our nation. We have a genuine interest towords peace. You have just power hungry campaign towards racist, facist state. It is non other than the path which took Hitler to transform Germany into Facist , nacist state in 1930’s.

    Hi Malinda….
    Before writing to educate public about the color of racism…
    first…check the color of your Shit…and smell it to know the
    the reality of racism….
    You know the process…
    First load the food in your stomach…drink whisky..Brandy to ferment
    then add Tea ..Cofee…and sleep and sleep…
    Then sit and strain in an open area so that you bowls begin to work…
    until shit comes in various forms…hard..soft…watery..
    man..it creates one hell of a mess…and smells …smells…
    not even Dogs …but only crows eat..

    So is racism religious hatred unleashed by the Yellow Robed Gandassaara…
    because he strained his big bowels at Aluthgama …supported by JHU….
    now the crows who were eagerly watching have begun to eat it…they enjoy it…
    and issue statements about the form..smell and taste of it…

    hey man….let your children…mother ..father …get killed or injured in a
    Racial ..Religious violence to know the true Color…
    all those who are maimed for life or dead are innoncent people…

      Hi Malinda,

      Just imagine what these yellow color racist Pinguttarayas will do if God gave them more Brains, more power, more wealth, more Gasolene, natural Gas etc like in the West or Middle East or any other European or Middle Eastern country.

      Either they will wipe off those non Buddhists from the whole world, or cover the world with their Yellow colour, bowl headed stinky shit asses.

      You will have to select one of the two then.

      Malinda,

      Please remember their yellow color shit have already started to stink the world.

      Very soon those yellow shit stinky asses will be kicked from their dens from all over the world.There will be no place to go then.

      It will be too late to wipe off those yellow color stinky shit from their Therawada Buddhist Sinhala asses.
      There will be neither Racism nor Yellow robes then.

    What Malinda is really saying is “Stop believing what you read or watch on facebook. Believe instead the Lankan newspapers who largely ignored the incident. And also Police spokesman and Champika Ranawake who claims the Americans are behind all this.”

    Malinda, the questions to ask is not “what colour is racism?” It is a dumb question to throw people off from asking the pertinent questions.

    1. Why is Gnanasara not behind bars?
    2. Why were the 13 arrested hooligans freed without charge?
    3. Why did the police and STF stand by and do nothing while the mob went on the rampage?
    4. How did the Panadura No Limit store catch fire.
    5. How did the police OIC know it was a wire short before any investigation.
    6. Who abducted and assaulted the Wateraka Vijitha priest?
    7. Why did the Police say his wounds are self inflicted.
    8. Who is the Police protecting?
    9. And who if not the highest powers in the land is behind all this?

      you are absolutely right…
      Today they have arrested Watareka Vijitha..
      for lying to the police ovier his self inflicted wounds…!!!
      It is the Police who say that the wounds are self inflicted and
      want us to believe because they say..hik..hik..hik…

      The Gandassaara is gone scot free…and he now he says that
      Watareka Vijitha was inciting religious hatred….

      This is why I said the color of racism is like shit…

    Buddhists are not racists Mr Senevirate but Sinhala Buddhists are. There is ample evidence in the history of Sri Lanka to justify this accusation. Can you tell me why the noble monk Ven Watarekha is in prison and the murderous thug Gnanasara is free? Sinhala Buddhist racists are allowed and encouraged to preach their hate whereas those true Buddhists who are preaching peace and amity are vilified and attacked. Get a grip on the reality Mr Seneviratne!
