In 1946, American society divided the public areas into ‘white’ and ‘colored’.
Although there was already official talk of equal treatment, in practice that was usually far from obvious.
Many ‘white’ Americans still looked down on the dark coloured fellow human beings in their country.
During a contact evening in 1952, Jozef Rulof told his audience about his trip to America and what his acquaintance with the racial segregation there was like:
If you could explain that to those people, ladies and gentlemen, who look down on a Negro ...
I did not do it; in Hollywood I sat down, in Florida, and I sat down precisely on the bench for the Negroes, and there was the bench for the white people, wasn’t it?
And I do not see that: ‘white’.
I think: What do I have to do with ‘white’?
I sat down by ‘black’.
Then those white people came, they went: so.
I say: pft.
I did that. (laughter)
Then that man said: ‘So.’
I say: ‘So, sir.’
Then he says: ‘Yes, sir.’
I also did the same thing. (laughter)
Now, he thinks: he is insane.
I think: och.
I say to my brother: ‘What, what?’
Then he say: ‘Look, you are sitting amongst the blacks.’
I say: ‘Well, now he is getting good, now I will really begin.’
I gave ...
I say: ‘Would you like a cigarette?’
‘Yes yes.’
Now, I say: ‘A nice smoke.’
And he: ggrr.
What a hatred lies there, sir, in that south.
Oh, in South Carolina and there, and the further you come: only for whites, only for blacks, and only ...
I say: ‘How can it be.’
And I was walking amongst that.
But, sir, now I will come back, there I saw a white person sitting there, in that Negro.
I think: oh, you used to be in France.
And then I attuned myself to that man, he was a boy of eighteen years’ old and there a girl.
I say to my master: ‘Where did they live?’
He says: ‘Just look, one from Norway, one from France, one from Germany.’
I saw Europe again in the Negro.

Jozef fought this segregation on the basis of skin colour during a lecture in the Carnegie Hall in New York:
And whether you are black or white, brown or grey, to God we are HIS children, we have told that in the large Carnegie Hall and they just had to swallow it, because we were not capable of flattering, and will never be able to do that!

When Jozef explains that after a ‘white’ body the soul can incarnate in a dark coloured body and vice versa, the dark coloured audience wish to bring the whole of Harlem to him:
Meanwhile we give the lecture about ‘Reincarnation’ and they are talking about it.
Jeus of Mother Crisje Part 3, 1952
There are doctors amongst the coloured people there, they buy books, they leave, and they want to bring the whole of Harlem to him, if he will give more of these lectures.

In the sources of the article ‘there are no races under the heading ‘The seventh grade’ there is a quotation describing that the body of the so-called ‘negroes’ along with many ‘white’ bodies and most other bodies on earth belongs to the sixth and seventh material grade of life.
In the quotation below that highest grade of life is called the perfect organism:
The negroes have already reached the perfect organism, they only represent one blood group and are the coloured people; coloured people, who must therefore represent the wonderful voices as timbres, because those organisms take them back to the natural reality; however, our white organism has been divided.
It is because of this that the negro has such a wonderful voice.
Now just follow the human being on earth and you will see that one in millions of people possesses the natural timbre and now we hear those people singing with a pure, clear, undivided organism.
And there are only a few of them, because all of mankind has been divided.

Jozef gives Paul Robeson (1898-1976) as an example of such a beautiful voice:
You should hear Robeson, and all those different Negroes.
A timbre such as only nature can create, they say.

Jozef indicates that the body can be white, black or brown, but that the inner self of the human being determines how much light and love it already radiates:
You have black colours and brown colours.
And you have black people and brown people, they are many times, a hundred thousand times further than we are; they are also there.
You have Negroes, we can bow to them, they are so powerful and wonderful.
So that means: the inner human being radiates, possesses light, outwardly and inwardly. But the main thing is the inner – you mean that – and then we come to the radiance of the human being.

During the contact evenings in the Netherlands, the mainly ‘white’ audience is told that they must not imagine that they experience the highest because they have a ‘white’ body:
Just do not imagine anything, do not imagine that you as a white human being experience the highest ...
Go to British India, you will see a wonderful personality there, also a normal, natural, powerful, strong conscious organism, and the soul lives in that.
The Indian life, the eastern consciousness is far ahead of you.
Because when we speak about a yogi, a magician, a fakir, an initiated, then you know nothing about that.
And then you must enter a temple, then you can follow a study of twenty, thirty years, and then you will still not know anything.
Only just in order to go to sleep, in order to heal a little bit, in order to say: I let you stand still.

Jozef tells that nothing more will remain of the ‘white’ skin colour when people reach the spiritual grade of feeling in the hereafter.
Then the scars of the earthly body will also disappear, and there will be no more question of black, brown and white, because the spiritual skin colour is million-fold.
In the following quotation, by ‘the first sphere’ he means the first sphere of light in the hereafter.
By ‘the All’, he means the highest cosmic grade of life:
If the human being is spiritually conscious then there will be no scars, and then there will be no question of black, brown and white, because the spiritual garment is million-fold.
You can barely analyse the human being from the first sphere anymore if you see his skin colour.
And now the second sphere, the third.
I have seen the human being in the Divine All with his hands and his skin colour.
I have been in the Divine All three times and I saw the human being there; if you see the skin colour then you see in that skin, you see in that flesh the whole of creation.
The eyes of a human being on the other side from the first sphere, madam, they shine lovingly at you, second sphere, third sphere.

The evolution of the soul

Anti-racism is deeply rooted in the books by Jozef Rulof:
Those who curse some race will perish.
The Origin of the Universe, 1939

The evolution of mankind

During a contact evening, Jozef emphasizes the wonderful time in which he lived.
Due to the terrible suffering brought by World War II, mankind has become conscious that it must be done differently.
As a result, the human being began laying spiritual foundations:
I have already told you several times here: We live in an amazing time; precisely, we people.
There is grumbling and beating and kicking, but history has never been so intensely experienced before and can never be so founded as precisely for this century, this 1900 and 2000.
That is tremendous.
In a million years’ time they will still speak about this time because now mankind is laying material and spiritual foundations.
Two hundred years ago we still lived in the animal-like grade of life, madam, in the unconscious.
The human being had a faith.
But such a great deal has changed in the human being, and especially during the last war: in five years of war we have experienced a revolution.
Now you get the laying of spiritual foundations.
