There is a near taboo subject regarding racial issues I might as well point out. First, a disclaimer: personally I have dark "olive" skin and am
more often than not assumed to be Hispanic. Unfortunately, I was adopted and in Texas those records are sealed and it is virtually impossible to gain
access to them.
So maybe I am Hispanic. I was adopted as an infant however by a Caucasian family who went to great lengths to tech me right from wrong with racism
near the very top of the list of evils. Being raised in a Caucasian home also meant I do not know Spanish Still, even I will admit to intolerance
which is often misunderstood to be racism. , but not just because of the color of a person's skin, rather by their actions and/or a extroverted sense
of entitlement associated with race. These people are far more guilty as a rule of discrimination as the people they attack because of the sheer
amount of venom spewed in the process and an ingrained belief they cannot be wrong.
Since I look Hispanic but can't speak a work of Spanish due to my upbringing, the Spanish people assume I am arrogant or too good for them and I have
become ostracized by all corners, The Caucasian contingency that leans towards racism to darker skinned individuals are also not going to have any
patient for me. I certainly can't claim to be black or oriental, so basically I lose everywhere I go.
So since I cannot accurately be accused of prejudice, I find myself in a unique position to make this statement where few others can because of my
lack of prejudice. The black people of this nation did what was necessary and had to doing in order to get the results they wanted, and the people of
faith bickered among themselves pushed and pulled themselves out of the racer.
