    Until we can see with our hearts as well as our eyes and until we have universal acceptance, this will be a problem. Reading your poem, I may start to pray for the creation of more stupid people.

    I have 2 black friends, 3 white friends, no hispanic friends except if you count the one who's latino, hundreds of thousands of Indian (aka sub-continental in western terms) friends I've never met and maybe 6 or 7 "far-eastern" friends. .... ok, I'm full of shit. I don't count. When I'm having a day that people don't suck, people are cool by me. Interesting write, Scribe, thanks! Namaste~N

    I like Morgan Freeman's line: God painted me.

    excellent point. I have zero...l.SIKE! But really, in my eyes, Color is a morning fog/ barely exists and IF it does. it burns away with the sun!~ Rock out PlayuH!~

    Color is the spice of life; how awful if we were all the same. I'm always looking for something different, why not the same with people. You don't have to take a back seat to anyone! :) Luv, Elizabeth

    Hi; A good write you got here. I say - maybe we should all be color blind. That way We would not see any colors. Take care and God bless. Lucilla

    Great verse, with an even greater message :) A very effective way of becoming colour blind is to live under the same roof and eat at the same table. Very soon all colour concepts disappear.
