"You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view [...], until you climb into his skin and walk around in it." - Atticus Finch, To Kill a Mockingbird. That, undoubtedly, is what German TV host and actress Mo Asumang, daughter of a black Ghanaian father and a white German mother, thought when she decided to confront neo-Nazis, white supremacists and Ku Klux Klan members about their beliefs. Activism takes many forms, but although you can't call one form superior to any others, Asumang's methods at the very least are extremely inspirational. When she confronted these groups of people, she didn't do so with hate or anger. Instead, she talked to them. She tried to understand what they were thinking, how they reasoned and why they would have the views they have. After all, it is through conversation rather than conflict that we can get rid of racism, because only in conversation can people be reasoned with, while conflict only makes them more fierce in their views. That doesn't mean it was easy, though. Conversation rather than conflict is a great thing on the internet or for activism in general, but she certainly took it a step further, because rather than having these conversations from the safety of a computer screen or in a familiar setting, she decided to have them face to face in places she didn't know. She talked to people at neo-Nazi protests and confronted a Ku Klux Klan leader somewhere in the middle of nowhere, with machine guns surrounding her. One thing is for sure: Mo Asumang is one courageous woman... All these experiences were put into an award-winning documentary entitled The Aryans, of which you can watch an inspiring set of highlights in the video below! Don't miss out on this one, and don't forget to let us know what you think! [embed][/embed] Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
