Once Upon a Time it was a beautiful, innocent child who knew no hatred and treated all his friends the same.
The child didn’t see racism and only saw all his friends, no matter what their skin color, were wonderful and kind and he love them all the same.
One day the boy’s father, who was hateful and saw the world through hateful eyes, polluted his son’s views-which saw only truth and light and love and had wonderful, real and mature, kind way of seeing the world.
The hateful father sadly passed the “disease of racism” to his son and his son became as hateful as his hateful father was.
His view was dark and sad.
The moral of this story is everyone losses in racism.
Don’t pass it on and pollute your children’s minds which are pure and unassuming.
Let us be like them, instead, giving everyone a fair chance and treating everyone equally.
Racism is stupidity and hate combined and the cycle of racism must be broken and can be with your help.
Much like a cure for cancer or other fatal disease, racism has a cure as well.
The cure for racism is knowledge, and a learned tolerance and appreciation for different people’s viewpoints and uniqueness.
The facts remain we are all created equally, no matter what color are skin is or what we believe. These are real facts. We all deserve kindness and to be treated in a loving, respectful way. Those are facts too.
Open your mind and free it from limiting, archaic beliefs that make it a triple loss. You lose. The person loses and the most tragic part is society loses.
Racism is like a closed-door on a world of opportunity of becoming more than you ever thought you could be.
Some traditions were waiting to be broken and thrown away or burned until they become ashes. That’s where racism belongs. Simply ashes blown away like desert dust.
We are all precious and we are all created with our own special qualities to be embraced.
Just because you don’t believe a certain way doesn’t mean you shouldn’t treat a person with empathy and understanding and be more focused on what great qualities they possess than how different they are from you.
America is a melting pot of many ethnicities which are diverse and uniquely wonderful.
We can learn from all of them.
Communication is the bridge that will propel us as human beings to new, more optimistic horizons.
We live in an incredible technological age.
Our children are very sophisticated and grow up learning English and multiple languages now.
They are raised around technology daily and they hold the future in their hands literally with smart phones figuratively.
Let’s show them a new, smart, new way of thinking to go along with their smartphones that will help them excel in life and in the business world by opening communication lines up.
They hold cell phones at an alarmingly young age
Children are our future literally and what we say and do they will mirror exactly. What we say, how we feel and what we think they mimic. So let’s pass on great traditions of excellence, of understanding, and pass on the legacy of communication and love.
If you’re not a racist then you are blessed and have a major advantage in life.
You see everyone as an opportunity to say hello and there are no barriers holding you back.
Let’s all look to the little children who I watch playing together here in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. None of them ever think twice about the color of their skin, which always makes me smile. We should be the same so we can live as they do too.
That includes you too-
To Mr. President Donald Trump:
Please get rid of that rediculous, expensive physical wall instead build up your negotiation abilities and learn how to foster better communication with the President of Mexico.
Hire a speech writer if you have to, and work with The United Nations to preserve peace and foster positive alliances.
Make America look great again by not having a bigot for it’s leader. It’s makes Americans like me ashamed.
