Not like black folk control the media.

The focus is too much on celibrities and sports people. 

Their role models should come from every day walks of life, like doctors, lawyers, engineers, business owners, architects etc.

If they focuses on that, then they would be a far stronger and more self-confident community. 

The above two quotes, equally correct in their assertions, illustrate the game being played with black people.

It's been all over the TV and news this month.

South Asians are the biggest minority group in the UK but we get no such month. We generally just keep our heads down and get on with things. 

Look at the contributions we make to this country, especially Sikhs and Hindus. We are disproportionately represented in Medicine, Dentistry, Optometry, IT, corner shops. Professions that actually benefit society on a day to day basis, not just music and sports. 

Why do they always go on about having a black James Bond? Why never an Indian one?

We never go begging for quotas or complain that we are under represented in certain fields. Look at Lewis Hamilton complaining about the lack of black people involved in the Engineering aspect of Formula 1. What he fails to realise is that not many black people are interested in such a field to begin with, he just feels entitled that there should be black engineers in Formula One for some reason.

I wonder what goreh really think about things like this in the UK? Do black people help their cause by creating protests and riots or do people think twice about hiring them because they are prone to playing the race card?

Does playing the race card help? Should we be doing such things? I think we get just as much racism as black people if not more.

This post shows a lack of empathy and a very bad understanding of the current issues, not to mention all the negative stereotypes you used. Our black brothers and sisters have been subject to the most intense systemic and institutional racism which still continues to this day. The whole point of the month and BLM for that matter is to bring awareness to it and demand further change, so black people have equal opportunities like the rest of us. We as Khalsey of Guru Gobind Singh jee should not be opposed to this as anything that promotes equality and justice is in-line with Maharaj's hukam.

They have had worse treatment than dastaar-waley Singhs ?  
 

This ‘BLM’ is encouraging Blacks to feel like they are more important than other groups. 
 

do you agree with that?

like a previous post, the best way for them to achieve ‘equality’ is if they start to be competitive with the likes of Jews and Indians in professions and business

Thats just your own prejudice thoughts jee, not one black person has said anything about feeling more important. Its about feeling EQUAL.

Funny thing BLM, is run by white people just watch how many black people do not even like them. 

So they riot and steal from themselves,  then you had the lad who passed away by a copper with his knee on his neck, and they do that a tribute with their arm in the air, its an absolute disgrace.

People look without seeing.

Black Caribbean people have achieved disproportionately well in sports and music in the UK. 

But not in the professional fields

the opposite is true for Asians in the UK

i don’t see why the big deal  being made about ‘equality’ when they are not achieving in the fields to earn them real respect with the remainder of the population. Why do we see so many black Caribbean criminals in the news? 
 

BLM will make more sense when they can address the problems within their own community in the UK which unfortunately I have observed working in London, there are large numbers of black kids or mixed kids (black father) where the father is absent and therefore the home life is not as good and then the kids turn to crime and unemployment etc

Jews, but I get your point. The founder of BLM is a Jewish woman who was pardoned by Bill Clinton (when he was president) after she committed a terrorist attack in the 70s. 

Also, why are the majority of BLM street activists in the U.S. soft, white (genuine whites, not pretending) millennials? You have ACTUAL African Americans telling them, "F*** you, you don't represent me. Stop using my race and my people as political tools." Are they fake blacks? Are they self-haters?

They ain't fake or self haters, they are like why are you coming to our community and messing up it? Chaos and rioting,  they are just perpetuating bad energy.

How many homes in Punjab have suffered the same fate?

In the states those are the only areas black folk were allowed to excel. Entertainment.

    • The Mind is Jyot Saroop (Waheguru), but the mind is under the influence of five evils… Through Naam Simran( Rememberance), the mind will begin to detach from evil, and get back to its original form ( MANN TU JYOT SAROOP HEH)… Until the mind breaks free from the five evils, one will go through the cycle of paap and punn….which leads to Karma… Naam Simran destroys past karma, and prevents new karma coming into fruition… I did this, I did that… This non realisation of the Jyot Saroop gives rise to paap and Punn, which in turn gives birth to suffering and misery…
    • I agree we're not born with sin like the Christians think. Also I agree we have effects of karma. But Gurbani does state that the body contains both sin and charity (goodness): ਕਾਇਆ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਪਾਪੁ ਪੁੰਨੁ ਦੁਇ ਭਾਈ ॥ Within the body are the two brothers sin and virtue. p126 Actually, we do need to be saved. Gurbani calls this "udhaar" (uplift). Without Satguru, souls are liable to spiritual death: ਜਿਨਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨ ਭੇਟਿਓ ਸੇ ਭਾਗਹੀਣ ਵਸਿ ਕਾਲ ॥ p40 Those who have not met Satguru Purakh are unfortunate and liable to death. So, yeah, we do need to be saved, and Guru ji does the saving. The reason Satguru is the one to save is because God has given Satguru the "key" (kunji): ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਹਥਿ ਕੁੰਜੀ ਹੋਰਤੁ ਦਰੁ ਖੁਲੈ ਨਾਹੀ ਗੁਰੁ ਪੂਰੈ ਭਾਗਿ ਮਿਲਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੭॥ In the True Guru's hand is the key. None else can open the door. By perfect good fortune the Guru is met. p124
    • That's unfortunate to hear. Could you give any more information? Who was this "baba"? He just disappeared with people's money? Obviously, you should donate your money to known institutions or poor people that you can verify the need of through friends and family in Punjab.
    • Sangat ji,  I know a family who went Sevewal to do seva sometimes end of 2019. They returned last year in great dismay and heart broken.  To repent for their mistakes they approached panj pyaare. The Panj gave them their punishment / order to how t make it up which, with Kirpa, they fulfilled.  They were listening to a fake Baba who, in the end, took all the "Donations " and fled sometime over a year ago. For nearly 4 years this family (who are great Gursikhs once u get to know them) wasted time and effort for this fake Baba. NOT ONLY this one fam. But many, many did worldwide and they took their fam to do seva, in village Sevewal, city Jaitho in Punjab. In the end many families lost money in thousands being behind this Baba. The family, on return, had to get in touch with all the participants and told them to stop.  I am stating this here to create awareness and we need to learn from whom we follow and believe. It's no easy but if we follow the 3 S (Sangat, Simran and Seva) we will be shown the light. As I am writing this the family in question have been doing the same since 2008 onwards and they fell for this Baba... it is unbelievable and shocking.  This am writing in a nutshell as am at work on my break so not lengthy but it deserves a great length.  Especially the family in question, who shed light on youngsters about Sikhi 20 plus years!!
