I never paid attention to any of what has become racial raucous. And I find myself constantly fighting racism in my face. It’s a new kind of racism. It’s an obsessive kind.
Racial communication has a new vibe in America. We get a new Pope, he’s a Latino Pope. That fact tends to roll off people’s tongue above anything else? What else do you know about him?
We can’t seem to free ourselves from the past yet, as races continue to merge and procreate, we find ourselves in a new world. A new world means new opportunities.
The ideal is to see each other as human beings. How can we find a way to successfully do that?
Recently, I was walking down the street to rent Annie Hall and walked by all types of people. I realized I never thought about colors, religion, sex, I just went thought my day. People were people.
But other people don’t. It’s on the forefront of their minds. This can stifle or impede our ability to build a better world.
Try and see human beings as just that, human.
