Colour of blood means nothing. Skin colour apparently does. Don't at least all land mammals and all birds bleed red? I don't have black and white
stripey skin although it would solve one area of racial divide. Or a pair of wings.....?
We are all HUMAN! Genticists and whoever would tell you that every person on the planet has HUMAN DNA. (please, I know some of you believe there are
"others" but for the sake of making a point.....sssshh!). Ok, as the HUMAN RACE we are diverse in cultures, traditions, history, levels of
technology and all the other -ologies and -ations etc and of course skin colour. So we a very DIFFERENT! Here in Britain we're told from a young age
to eat all your food, especially in someone else's house. It's bad manners and implies the food isn't nice. Yet, in China, if you eat all that's
on your plate it's taken as an insult as you are questioning their generosity.
Imagine there was only one colour. Does that mean there would be no racism? I don't know. But it there would still be prejudice. We fear what we
don't know. hence why there is the "Great Quest for Knowledge" happening everyday. We want to know everything about everything. Including each
Britain is a melting pot of all the colours. I use this as an example only cos I live here. Whites see it as they have built up this country, albeit
by Imperialism, but nonetheless they have, and they've fought and had family that have fought and died defending this country over generations to
maintain their way of life. The country wasn't perfect, what with homelessness, drugs, crime - murders, rapes, unemployment, sectarianism (take
note). These things happened but hey the country was booming. All these lands owned across the globe brought many diverse and interesting goods to
trade. They'd heard of and sometimes seen other colours but they were working hard in another part of the Great country. Then different colours
started appearing on their streets. Blacks, Yellows, Browns, Reds all came from White owned territories from all over the world. "To our lands?"
The new colours needed jobs, housing, health care, education for either themselves and/or children and they would've been able to claim benefits.
Whites didn't like the fact they'd built up this nice little gig that worked for the majority of them, just to let someone else reap the rewards (or
benefits). "They're taking our jobs, and homes and overloading our schools and hospitals". When different colours entered workplaces some whites
wouldn't have it. They made life difficult for a lot of the new colours. So some of the new colours went out and created jobs for themselves.
restaurants, take-aways, shops were the most popular choices (I'm not stereotyping!). Whites still weren't happy. "There's no jobs and it's cos
of the new colours taking all the jobs. Let's trash their businesses!" Hard-working colours' liveliehoods were ruined. Lives destroyed. Colours
fighting on the streets, terrorising homes with little colours inside. The little colours got very scared and many grew up with fear and resentment
for the whites.
But now all these little colours - white, black, brown, red, yellow have all grown up. Many have blossomed into fine colours. Some haven't. Having
been told and reminded and reminded again of how bad things have gotten since all the new colours arrived. They see the land as much theirs as any
other colours. Resentment on all sides embedded in the minds of all the young colours.
Some colours like all other colours.
Some colours like other colours but not all.
Some like none but their own.
Some even act like they are other colours.
