I heard about this on the radio this morning. I just about cheered. It is about time someone challenged this stupid, racist posturing. Click on the picture and listen to the debate. You will see why.
Does racism still exist in the USA? Yes. Should we do our best to stomp it out? Yes. Will we ever completely succeed? No. Should we let our inability to be perfect forever divide us into self-righteous, prideful cliques? No. Wouldn’t that be racist too?
There is a point where constantly emphasizing one’s consciousness of one’s own race is self-defeating. Consider Martin Luther King’s words.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today!
I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of “interposition” and “nullification” — one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
I have a dream today! (from here)
Brothers and sisters don’t care about each other’s color. They join hands because they care about each other.
