LABELING “Aren’t Labels for Canned Goods?”

LABELING                                                 “Aren’t Labels for Canned Goods?”

TODAY’S DAILY WISDOM WORD IS LABELING.  “LABELS” ARE USED TO SHOW WHAT CANNED GOODS ARE STORED IN A CAN WE PULL FROM OUR PANTRY.  LABELS WERE NEVER MEANT TO USE SPECIFIC WORDS TO JUDGE OTHERS.   UNFORTUNATELY, WE FIND OURSELVES JUDGING OTHERS, AND CREATE LABELS IN OUR MIND FOR THEM.  OFTEN TIMES, LABELING IS ALSO USED TO BULLY OTHERS. LABELS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE USED FOR OUR CANNED GROCERY GOODS.  INSTEAD WE OFTEN USE LABELS TO JUDGE OTHERS NOW MORE THAN EVER.  WE  OFTEN JUDGE OR “LABEL” ASIAN AMERICANS, BLACKS OR ANOTHER RACE NOT OUR OWN . 

WE JUDGE OTHER CREEDS AND RELIGIONS.   WHEN WE ARE LABELED,  WE FIND PEOPLE USING LABELS TO JUDGE US.  IF WE ARE GOING TO “PASS JUDGEMENT”, SHOULDN’T IT BE ON INDIVIDUAL MERITS OF THE INDIVIDUAL OR PERHAPS NOT AT ALL?  JUST BECAUSE WE HAVE A CERTAIN WAY OF DOING THINGS OR A CERTAIN BELIEF SYSTEM,  AND ANOTHER PERSON DOES NOT SUBSCRIBE TO OUR BELIEFS, SHOULDN’T WE AT THE VERY LEAST, EXTEND MUTUAL RESPECT TO THAT PERSON? 

I FIND IN TODAY’S WORLD ESPECIALLY SINCE THE WORST OF THE PANDEMIC HAS PASSED FOR US, DUE TO CURRENT EVENTS OR NEWS WE HEAR, ASIAN AMERICANS ARE BEING JUDGED BASED ON A DECISION THAT HASN’T BEEN PROVEN TO BE MADE BY ANYONE.  (IF ANY OF THE CONSPIRACY THEORIES ARE TRUE TO BEGIN WITH),  THE INDIVIDUALS WHO ORIGINATE FROM THERE SHOULD NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS VIRUS.  WHOEVER IS POTENTIALLY  EVIL ENOUGH TO HAVE INVENTED THIS VIRUS,  “IF THIS VIRUS WAS EVEN INVENTED TO BEGIN WITH”,  DID SO AT THE BEHEST OF THEIR GOVERNMENT. 

I AM SURE THE INDIVIDUALS FOLLOWING ORDERS DID NOT WANT A DEADLY VIRUS UNLEASHED ON A COUNTRY AND NEITHER DID THE ASIAN AMERICANS WHO LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES WANT THIS VIRUS UNLEASHED EITHER.  WE MUST LOOK AT OVERALL LOSS OF LIFE TO SEE A CLEAR PICTURE OF THIS AND IT IS EVIDENT THAT ASIAN INDIVIDUALS HAVE LOST SOME OF THEIR OWN DURING THIS PANDEMIC AS WELL. 

ASIAN AMERICANS WHO HAVE MIGRATED HERE, HAVE LOST LOVED ONES JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE.  SADLY THIS SEEMS TO BE FORGOTTEN AMONGST OUR CULTURE.  LET US TAKE A LOOK AT THE WEBSTER DEFINITION OF “LABELING” AND OUR DAILY WISDOM WORDS DEFINITION. 

WEBSTER DEFINITION-1.  A SMALL PIECE OF PAPER, FABRIC OR PLASTIC,, OR SIMILAR MATERIAL ATTACHED TO AN OBJECT GIVING INFORMATION ABOUT IT. 2.  A CLASSIFICATION FOR A PERSON OR THING, ESPECIALLY ONE THAT IS INACCURATE OR RESTRICTIVE.  WHEN DESIGNATION, DENOMINATION OR RELIGION IS PRESUMED,  SOMEONE IS  LABELED BY ANOTHER PERSON. 

DAILY WISDOM WORD DEFINITION OF LABELS- A WORD OVERUSED IN AMERICAN SOCIETY TO JUDGE ANOTHER PERSON OR THING.   OFTEN TIMES THESE INDIVIDUALS ARE LABELED BASED ON CONSPIRACY THEORIES THEY HAD NO KNOWLEDGE OF IF ANY OF THESE POTENTIAL THEORIES ARE TRUE.  2.  ONE’S CREED, COLOR OR DESIGNATION LABELED. 

I HOPE WE AS A NATION, OR WORLD OR UNIVERSE CAN SEE THIS.  LABELING IS NOT PRODUCTIVE, ESPECIALLY WHEN SO UNKIND.  HAVE YOU EVER LABELED OTHERS?  I HAVE IN THE PAST WITHOUT MEANING ANY HARM, BUT I BELIEVE THERE ARE BETTER WAYS TO DESCRIBE OTHERS.  IF YOU ARE HONEST, HAVE YOU EVER LABELED OTHERS, EVEN WITHOUT MALICE OR ILL INTENTION?  BENEATH THIS POST IS A PLACE TO LEAVE COMMENTS WHERE YOU CAN “JOIN THE DISCUSSION”.
