Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard posted a video Sunday saying the “racialization of everyone and everything” that’s being pushed by the “mainstream propaganda media and politicians” is dividing Americans and creating more hate.

Ms. Gabbard, a Hawaii Democrat who unsuccessfully ran for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, urged Americans to accept the Hawaiian “aloha,” or love and affection, as a way of life and reject seeing others through “the prism of race and ethnicity.”

“Please, let us stop the RACIALIZATION of everyone and everything,” the former congresswoman tweeted. “We are all children of God, and therefore family in the truest sense, no matter our race or ethnicity. This is aloha — love & respect for others. This is what our country & the world need.”

“The mainstream propaganda media and politicians — they want us to constantly focus on our skin color and the skin color of others, because it helps them politically or financially,” she said in an accompanying video. “Aloha means respect and love for others. It’s what enables us to see beyond our skin color and see the soul of the person within. So let’s do our best to cultivate this aloha in our hearts and see and treat others through this prism of love, not through the prism of race and ethnicity.

“Please, let us not allow ourselves to be led down the dark and divisive path of racialism and hate,” she added.



Ms. Gabbard‘s video had been viewed nearly 600,000 times as of Monday morning.
