Respect for Your Skin?

Once upon a time, a man our country considers a wise man stated that “all men are created equal,” yet he had slaves of his own.  Was he stating that only whites were men and the rest were savage beasts like the Indians were considered?  Whether or not that’s true, no one is ever agreed with 100%, and I’m certain there are white people who disagreed with him.

Nevertheless we have black magazines, black holidays, and black religions, all celebrating the black race.  Why don’t we celebrate Chinese holidays, Tongan holidays, or European holidays?  And now we’ve voted a dark-colored man into office.  Is it because he’s educated?  No one knew anything about him.  All that we knew was “he is black.”  He was born muslim and came over here to be an American.  He refuses to pledge allegiance, despises “In God We Trust,” and just because he’s black, the country supports him.  Why?  That’s easy– “Change.”  Our country needed it and he offered it.

Grouping all one color of people together is a serious and stupid downfall, especially because of their color.  If that were the case, since I was a victim of rape, strangulation and attempted murder, by a black assailant–all black men would be rapists.  But I have several black friends, some who are very dear to me.  Just as there are good white people, there are bad; there are good black people and there are bad.  There are black people who have worked hard to become aspiring icons such as the late Dr. Martin Luther King and Oprah Winfrey;  just as there are blacks doing illegal activities and riding on the coat tails of those good people everytime they get caught.  The same with white people; clumping all blacks or whites as “good” or “bad.”  Your skin doesn’t make you respectable, and intelligent people know that.

The race of someone should never be the deciding factor of whether a person is good or bad.  Our country is supposed to be founded on God, in every race.  Why don’t we see people love each other for what Christ represents? Critique each person on his or own merit, allowing God to punish, and stop being lazy–or be the fool.

“We hold these truths to be sacred & undeniable; that all men are created equal & independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent & inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, & liberty, & the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these ends, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government shall become destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, & to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles & organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety & happiness.”

In God We Trust–Amen!
