What does race mean? The colour of our skin? Where we come from? Or is it something else?
Questions are being raised and protests have broken out at the latest killing of a black man. I’m certainly no racist a black man (Rodney Brown) saved my life on Lake Dallas way back while my white stepson watched on amused. I was drowning in the middle of the lake having gone overboard ahead of some School students. I was with thinking I’d check it was OK to swim after the captain of the boat said it was. It wasn’t I quickly got drawn under by the current and unfortunately the kids didn’t wait they jumped in too. It was mayhem, the crew panicked I was moving further away from the boat Rodney took control he threw the life belt hundreds of feet and I can recall that I was quickly going under when that ring fell in front of me. Thank you Rodney!
I’ve friends of many race and colour we are all the same we all bleed red. Unfortunately racism is worldwide, in the US in particular because of its history of slavery its ingrained into the fabric of many people there, but we should remember slavery has been around for thousands of years in all its forms. I’ve seen racism myself as a retired volunteer cop in Fort Worth. Officers there (of all races) were following orders when they did what they were told, but isn’t that what the Natzi’s said when they did what they did to all of those millions of human beings in the second world war?
Russia America China Extends racism into a whole different level. Three superpowers challenging for world supremacy, they do it by subterfuge, people are suffering in all three countries simply so their politicians can gain power. Racism creates hate, hate for each other a continual struggle to gain the upper hand. Racism is global and we the human race need to understand we’re on this planet together. We have far more important things to concern ourselves with instead of the hate that some people exploit for their own ends.
Climate change, Pandemics the list goes on and on. United we stand Divided we fall, but we seem incapable of understanding that. We humans are supposed to be the intelligent species on our Earth but IF we don’t put our differences aside we’ll be removed by nature itself, the Earth of course will continue with or without the human race.
