The 21st Anniversary of the Durban Declaration and Programme of Action exhibits the stigmatization and violence experienced by people of African descent. These people have witnessed hateful conspiracies, xenophobia, misogyny, white supremacy and amplification of Neo-Nazi ideologies; hence it can be contemplated that human rights have been consistently assailed. There is an urgent need for a new awakening recommending the ideology of “a fight against racism, xenophobia and related intolerance” to prevent the structural inequalities and transgressional affliction which have been entrenched in the generations of colonial abuse and enslavement.
