I get so confused when it comes to racism.
I simply do not understand why so many people hang on to it so tightly.
Perhaps there is someone that can explain it to me.

People use so many excuses to justify separating themselves from others. From bad things that were done long before any of us were born, to the cruel things that a very few people are doing today. Does it really make sense for me to blame you for the things that happened so many years ago? Or blame your friends and family for the bad things that someone did to me today?

Why does anyone care what color an artist's skin is or the sex of an author? Does it really matter what country a musician is from? If a scientist has a cure for a disease, does it matter how fancy their lab or what kind of clothes they wear?

Why do people say they are oppressed and outcast then go out of their way to isolate themselves? Why do we still have groups and schools that tend to only allow people of a particular race or skin color to attend? I just do not understand, we see and hear so many people saying how they despise racism and sexism yet they seem to be the very ones that do the most to promote it.

In this world there are good people and the ones that are not so good. There are people that are cruel and those that are kind. There are those that always seem to try to be honest and those that seem to know nothing but lies. No matter what country one is in, what religion a person is, or even the color a person's skin, there seem to be more and more people on the planet that only care about themselves.

There are so many unscrupulous people in the world and so very few that are sincerely honest, kind and so very, very few that have a truly decent soul. It seems such a shame to take a chance to loose what could become a true and sincere friendship simply because someone we meet is a little different.
