Racial Tension
Code of Ethics
Racial Tension
What Is Racial Tension
Racial Tension is the feeling that exists when people do not trust and be aggressive to each other it is easily caused by prejudice and discrimination.
Initially people do not take it seriously and when the cases happen frequently and massively, people won’t take them as specials cases.
The races that besieged then tend to feel anxious and strike back in order to protect themselves and thus the racial tension is created.
For examples, incidents of violence against Indians in Australia were happened frequently in last few months.

Jonah’s Mission
We derive inspiration from Jonah’s mission to Nineveh, Jonah did not wanted mercy for Nineveh as he had great hatred for them as they were proven to be the enemies of Israel due to which there was great racial tension.
In the end it was found that Jonah chose silence and hate rather than obedience and love.
Jonah’s Case
In Jonah’s Case it was Found:
Jonah experienced mercy but gave none;
He received love but returned none;
He was benefited from the patience of God but resented God for showing that same patience to Nineveh.
Bible says that "There's a wideness in God's mercy like the wideness of the sea." But the ultimate expression of the wideness of God's mercy is that of the outstretched arms of Christ nailed to a cross and dying for our sins.
Jonah’s Mission
Jonah received God's mercy and even steered others to it, but his great failure was in not wanting others to be allowed to experience that mercy for themselves. God grant that we would succeed in gratefully and obediently taking His mercy to those who need it as much as we do.
Christian Worldview
Bible says on Racism that:
Human beings share earth as common home.
All people born on this earth belong to “One Family” and are related to each other.
Christians who love others and fulfill every responsibility towards them should do it with love and mercy.
Justice does not demand that the wrongdoers be repaid evil for evil.
human beings share earth as common home therefore all should be regarded as members though distantly related. Therefore members of all the communities should be regarded as one family.
Justice does not demand that the wrongdoers be repaid evil for evil neither it fo
ids giving what is unmerited.
Even when humanity of others is acknowledged, groups struggle for competitive advantages therefore all the people should form small communities and settle a
angements.
