The founder and head pastor of Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church, Shepherd Bushiri, has made a controversial submission on racism.
The cleric is of the strong belief that racism will not end easily. He said if people keep washing white clothes first before the rest, the scourge will not go away.

Pastor Bushiri also funnily hung his reason on black tyres for white cars in the automobile industry. He went on:

"Racism will never end if we still use white for the wedding, and black for the funeral."
Bushiri also questioned the use of the word "blacklisted" to ostracise a person instead of "whitelisted." As he said all this, both his white and black members laughed.

Below are some of the reactions:
What about light and darkness?
"In-depth observation: your mind will just be telling you perhaps made this conscious efforts in making everything not so good- Black-"
"Why am I hearing 'lasisi will never end'."
"Even the Bible says that darkness and light has nothing in common let’s start from there."
"It’s the blacklisted part for me, they need to change it o."
"Hahahahaha! Nice one oo. The blacks will always be separated from the white."
"Extortion and manipulation will never end when people like you lie to your gullible followers in order to acquire wealth."
"I totally disagree with this analogy, what are we expecting? Tyre should be made white? While washing u put black and white together and face the risk of staining it permanently?"
Little girl wants to end racism
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a nine-year-old girl identified as Emi Kim was on a mission to end racism by bringing more diverse books that feature people of colour into libraries.
Emi and her family came up with the book idea and the little girl believes that people will get to understand one another better.
