My thoughts today are long and deep, WHO KNEW...LOL

No more black,

No more white,

No more yellow,

Not even a trace…


This would have had to start,

At the beginning of life,

When the world first developed,

But wouldn’t it be so nice,

Not to look at another color,

With disdain or without a price…


To be totally free of prejudice,

Forget that one group is rich,

That the other group is poor,

But man cannot live like this,

Unfortunately we go through life,

With this inside us as a permanent glitch…

There will always be those who can't look past their nose and that bothers me deeply, always did and always will. As far as I am concerned we are all the same. we all have a heart and we all bleed. Thank you Ed for sharing.

"This would have had to start,
At the beginning of life,
When the world first developed,..."

And so it did begin this way, Ed. The Bible (recorded by man) does not say God made a white man, but a man, and from his rib made woman.
Then there is the scientific fact that the oldest human remains discovered (thus far) are those of an African woman.
Open minds learn...closed minds discriminate...methinks.

This all sounds good on paper, but it will never happen. It is America's sin. So sad.

Well stated, Ed; bravo!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(

There are lots of prejudices everywhere, no matter what color of skin you bear. People have to accept each other's difference without making judgment on another. That's the key to peace.

Unfortunately, as long as there is man, they can't see past their differences: everyone has to have a label. They forget we are all of the race of MAN. Well said, Ed.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Our eyes see beauty in all colors but our mind transforms it into prejudgice. Great write Ed, another great one. See you touch many with your little box. Love, Dr. Bonnie
