Tools of Oppression

Tools of Oppression**
The only conditional to forgiveness is self-love, otherwise forgiveness is unconditional, for it's not contingent on any externals.

The morally unannointed politicians are, unfortunately for the rest of us, most astute at using various tools of oppression to widen the gap between the privileged and the disenfranchised or marginalized.

I'm really not interested in the wherefore folks commit suicide, for that is a knowable; what I am interested in is how we can learn from each other to create meaningful​ living through the empirically proven physical and mental self-care in our lives that will prevent us from getting to that point of no return or simply that point of suicide ideation or contemplation of such life-negating deed.

As you begin to educate yourself on how privilege and oppression works hand-in-hand, you realize that some folks are not really blindly homophobic, but insidiously, merely use homophobia as one of the tools of oppression,​ which reinforces linear order of human experiences vis-a-vis levels of privileges.
A homosexual with high privilege or with just enough high privilege-by-proxy will suffer no homophobia at all from one - - a person who will pretend to be, use blindly one of the isms - - who has been well-adjusted to the insidious ways of how oppression works to maintain the status quo of the workings of high privilege.
You will observe how race and racism works as a tool of oppression by realizing that some "Black" folks or others of color have way more privilege than the so-called average, or for that matter any, "White" person that are vilified with having "White" privilege or supremacy.
Case in point: the former U.S. President, Mr. Barack Obama, his immediate family members and his new circle of friends of color have far more privilege than most white-skinned folks, who are demonized as having a certain above-necessary amount of high privilege to be equated with supremacy.
But this is how seductively treacherous and tricky the tools of oppression work together to create a powerful, ever constant undercurrent of division, distrust, and envy at every level of privilege amongst those seeking to amass more privilege or/and those who feel disenfranchised, marginalized by the status quo of external powers.
