This video and story has been floating around the internet for quite sometime now, but I never brought myself to watch it because it seemed stupid. Maybe its the way I was raised, but I don’t understand the point of racism… I mean, we all bleed and characteristically have the same organs. The only difference is our skin color which is different because of evolution and where our ancestors originated. Why is the issue of skin color so important that we have to typify it? Can’t we all just appreciate each other’s heritage?

Unfortunately, that happens to be too much to ask for because, for however long mankind will exist, the problem with racism will continue to persist. Me asking why we continue to hate each other based on our skin color is merely a hypothetical question because I already know the why. Racism is something built off of generations and generations of hate, and the only way to truly stop it begins with an individual’s changed perspective. Do you know how hard it is to change a person’s perspective once they’ve already formed their own logic and reasoning to a certain situation? It’s hard. We still have people believing that vaccinations cause autism and other disorders in our kids even though the original physician came forward and said he falsified his studies; and there is no other evidence to continue backing up this claim. Vaccines and disorders are an entirely different story in itself, but you see the point I’m getting at? Strongly-held beliefs will be what prevents us from moving forward.

Kind of sad that we still have to have this conversation with each other considering what year we live in but, if we continue to have a conversation about it, we might be able to do something about it. The world we live in is continuing to be diversified each minute, so there could be one day where its difficult to distinguish each other’s heritage…
