If you are, then today – International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination – is a day to ‘eliminate’ people like you. IDERD became official in 1966, after that fateful day in 1960, where police opened fire and killed 69 people at a peaceful demonstration against apartheid “pass laws” in Sharpeville, South Africa.
If you are a Christian, then today “Good Friday” is for you:
My people, What have I done to you? How have I offended you? Answer me!
I led you out of Egypt; but you led your Savior to the Cross.
For forty years I led you safely through the desert,
I fed you with manna from heaven,
and brought you to the land of plenty; But you led your Savior to the Cross.
O, My people! What have I done to you that you should testify against me?
(Jesus, in one of his reproaches)
