One of my best friends sent me an article about “the end of race”.
The end of race.
I get so sick of all this race stuff.
If it’s not me noticing something, it’s me noticing somebody else noticing something, and then it gets me started noticing something….and then they start questioning why I’m noticing something….and then the race is off….and all we can see is that we’re really pretty different after all.
I don’t think we’re any different than the way we act….when we decide we’re pretty different.
In reality….”reality”….I wonder if we aren’t all just a bunch of “spirit wrappers”….angels in waiting….souls with different physical labels and “appearances”….molecules swimming through space at a rapid pace….
Maybe we’re just a collection of electrical impulses (in a body that helps us stand erect) that tell us to smile at each other every once in a while?
I don’t really know. It’s too easy to adopt this thought that with all the different “wrappers” out there, that we’re really the same stuff inside…..beyond all the regular inside stuff….the intestines….the bladder….the kidneys…..all the stuff inside.
We’re all the same.
There’s no power in “all the same”, though.
There’s no “identity” in “all the same”.
I’m proud to have some Norwegian ancestry.
That’s about as white as you get….pale and white.
I wish that I tanned better.
But put me up against a Swede….or somebody from Denmark….or….I don’t know all the countries with really white people….pale people…..and you couldn’t pick me out of a lineup.
I’m just another guy with a really pale skin wrapper.
In some neighborhoods, if I went in with my wimpy philosophical “guns” blazing, and talked about touchy feelgood thoughts like “spirit wrapper”, I’d be KILLED.
And that’s just the redneck neighborhoods around here.
Nobody’s neck is red…..not really “red”.
I’m comfortable with the people who are comfortable with me.
Sometimes it takes awhile for us to get to know each other….and that’s not a “race” thing….but when we do, I hope that we’re comfortable with each other.
It makes it easy.
When’s this race stuff going to end?
Can’t we all just get along?
Our time on earth is so short…..we’re wasting it with all this wacky “race stuff”.
We’re wasting our short time here.
Here’s the good article my friend linked to…..
and here’s a good song….
