One people, different colors!

There is a song by the late lucky Dube about us being one people with different colors. A very maningful song indeed, especially in our times. I hope we have all been following the rise in racial violence in the united states of recent. Just last week in Dallas and minesota, two black men were killed by white police officers. (sighhhhhh)


I thought that in this day and age we were making strides in the area of race and accepting people for who they are, especailly in the united states which is a melting pot of various ethnicities and cultures. Its sad to see that old prejudices still lie beneath the surface. Now the united states is tense and people of colour especially seem to be worried about being attacked any moment!


Our prayesrs and thoughts are with the families of the victims. We cannot change people without changing ourselves. Violence is not the answer. While it is abhorrent and unacceptable that anyone would stoop so low as to hate and hurt someone else just because of the color of their skin, we should not respond in kind. We will also not give in to fear! We will go on living our lives with our heads held high and we will be kind to those around us. Whoever does not want to accept us does not take away anything from us, it just shows the kind of person they are! We are all beautiful and amazing no matter what we look like on the outside. God bless you all!
