Color blind

The world is full of people who are obsessed with color. I just don’t get it. I am African American, black, negro whowever you (carefully and pc) choose to label it. My husband is caucasian, white (however you carefully and pc choose to label it). Our children are…..bi-racial. But really couldn’t it be argued that we are all multi racial? Is there truely a “pure” race of any kind left on this earth but really does it matter? If so why? Let’s break this down into easy terms shall we. Racisim is saying I don’t like you because your color isn’t similar to mine. So let’s say your best friend looks white but that persons birth certificate lists them as black is that person going to stop being your friend? Come on folks let’s stop being petty and superfical.

Life is not one great big soap opera and the world is not a giant elementary school. True equality starts at home. Teach your children all people were created equal and to be color blind. Like or dislike a person based on your personal interaction with THAT person, not because they look different, talk different or walk different. In so doing lets see how much better the world is for future generations.
