AN EXCUSE FOR RACISM
Now day's people seem to have an excuse for just about everything. They
call the misdeeds of others illnesses in an attempt to excuse their misdeeds. Tell me, what is the excuse for racism?
As children we are taught what to believe, how to act and react by parents
and those around us. As we age wisdom should take over, seeing that we become responsible for our actions, reactions
No longer can any of us excuse racism
by blaming others for our behavior. That's not to say that other individual's actions cannot influence us to distrust
and feel ill towards them and others of that nationality. However, in the end we are responsible for our actions.
Racism is not an inherited physical or mental illness, but it is a premeditated
weapon of choice that is used by racist to spread their poison to others.
In 2008, let us work together that true change may come about. We can join our children in embracing others
or they will do it alone.
