Remembering Babylon, I remember as a tough read in which it was written for a group that can fully grab the topics in such a way that would show true appreciation of what was being read. I read this test before the whole pandemic started and discussed it during class. This story brings to light of a male by the name of Gemmy was separated from his people is the Europeans. He ended up being saved by aboriginals that took him in and talk to him for the rest of his life. This was until he once again found these settlers and was taken by them because he looks more similar to them then the aboriginals. But even then, Gemmy was not treated as he was one of the Europeans, he was treated like an outsider a type of spy that would go against his old customs and be different than them. What does this show us that even being the same skin color as the Europeans once they consider someone a treat to their lives, they will resort to using violence out of fear? This specific fear is Xenophobia that encapsulates this distressing time of racism to its peak. That differences in skin color can make someone be fear or there is distrust because someone isn’t the same as us. Gemmy’s case would be providing aid towards the aboriginals whose only problem was the Europeans coming to settle where they have been established for many years. History has brought to light situations in which racism and segregation have been used to an unethical extend and humanity has learned that is what we are essentially humans. Which allowed laws to change and a begin towards an end on segregation. This story captures the perspective of the Europeans looking at the fears they face as a faction towards the aboriginals. It is a lesson to learn and a way history can always change by looking back at these events.
