What with Zimmerman’s acquittal, Oprah not getting a closer look at that $38,000 handbag in Switzerland, and Stevie Wonder saying he won’t sing in Florida,* racism is on everybody’s mind these days.
And the related issue of slavery.
Here are the facts:
1. We are all racists. However, in most of us, it’s no big deal. We simply prefer the company of people who look like us. Are your closest friends of another skin tone? If they are, you are an anomaly.
A blatant demonstration of this human desire takes place daily in student unions of universities. Black students are at one table, whites at another, Asians at another and Latinos over there at yet another.
There are some exceptions, of course, the anomalies.
While this is no big deal in most cases, there are the extremists, the evil and vile people. Examples are the Klan, David Duke, the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan, the NAACP, Eric Holder, Michelle Obama, the Black Panthers, Barack’s so-called pastor Jeremiah Wright, Al Sharpton, La Raza, and so on.
I have named more blacks than whites because these days evil black racists are far more numerous and vocal than their white counterparts.
Racism will never end, by the way.
2. Slavery has existed since the dawn of Man. Thousands live in slavery today. Most slaves have not been black. Many have been white.**
Slavery ended in the United States one and a half centuries ago. It is ancient history and not the cause of black Americans’ problems these days. Black racists and their clueless white lap dogs are the cause.
Perhaps the world will be free of slavery one day. Maybe not.
Bonus fact: There will never be world peace, and war will not cease.
The global rainbow will ever be tumultuous.
