I may be running the risk of sounding preachy or too idealistic here but- whatever happened to basic humanity? Knowing that deep down inside of each and every one of us, That there truly lived something more than a color. We all feel pain. We all can feel Love. Compassion and understanding.. Being Human. That is what we were truly intended to be at our core. Red-blooded, Love and pain feeling human beings. But there is, however, something else that drives people. Hate. Seeing the world through the blinded stare of hate can make people- Yes humans, do unthinkable things to one another. See- Now racism, I don’t get. I never have. It seems to me that it is hard enough just being a good person without worrying about someone’s perception of what color you are and how you should act in direct relation to that color.
See me personally? nowmaybe this will sound sappy- but I am MORE than the color of my skin. I am a man first. But lets face reality here, racism has been around for generation after generation, and at its core lives mostly ignorant unintelligent scared people who would rather focus all of their energies on how we are all different rather than on how we are all the same. It won’t go away because there are people that just will not let it. So maybe it is up to the rest of us, to make it a matter of personal responsibility, to make it less about color and more about personal character, if we do not set a higher standard for ourselves, then who will? And more importantly, As individuals, if we cannot get past the color of our own skin. Then how in the world can we realistically expect anyone else to?
