The media, the celebrities, the politicians, or maybe even the population?
Isn’t it as simple as this, We are ALL one RACE! The Human Race!
Deal with the thought process, there is no race superior to, nor inferior to another. Maybe some might be less fortunate, but typically, it is not a race factor that is responsible for unfortunate circumstances of a race – more often than not it is geography. Where a group of people live, or have been living for many years, doesn’t make them any less of a person/people than the rest.
90%, or maybe close to that percentage, of the people in this world could thrive and excel in life if they were all provided with the exact same opportunities as the rest of the world. After all, we are indeed products of our environment. This should not place any inferiority on any one race ever.
Yet for thousands of years, along the ways, so many races and religions project prejudice in one form or another. In the immortal words of Rodney King “People, I just want to say, can we all get along? Can we get along?”
Does it get any simpler than that? We are all here. We all have our own wills, desires, and motivators. Is it logical to keep using the past mistakes, and there are SO many of them, and bringing them up constantly?
NAACP, now if there were a group that was for the advancement of another race or whatnot, wouldn’t that be considered racist? Do we still need this? Fact is, we shouldn’t have needed it in the first place. We are constantly hearing how proud a person has made their race – regardless of color. Why can’t we just be proud of our accomplishments, whatever they may be, why must we continuously throw out the race card? This I simply cannot understand.
I don’t care where you came from, what office you hold or have held, if you take pride in what you do, and do so with the moral integrity that should exist in our civilization, than I can respect that. I have had the pleasure of working with and learning from many different people in this world, not all have been white or even from this country, but I have held a great deal of respect for a high percentage of them all. I can’t say as ALL people are awesome, because there are quite a few real jerks in this world. I just don’t think that being a jerk is tied to any specific race or origin. There are Jerks of many colors and origins. Jerks certainly don’t discriminate.
In the US of A alone, I have met people from the east coast to the west coast, from the north and the south, and generally, people can be and typically are nice. Those that aren’t, usually have a reason, whether it be logical or not is another question, but they may have had a bad childhood, or been wronged by another, or brought up with a different mindset than the majority of the population. Though a high percentage of those that do have a negative attitude, still have kind thoughts and meanings. We just might not be around when they project those nicer demeanors.
Isn’t it time that we did all get along? You fish on your side, I fish on my side and nobody fish in the middle type of thing? As long as we are not hurting anyone with our beliefs, why should who we worship bother another? Why should the color of our skin or the tongue we speak in offend anyone else?
Does anybody at all actually SEE the ‘Big Picture’?
