    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.

    We should apply this notion towards 'hate crime' assessments - thanks for provoking good logic Scribe - J.A.B. %

    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

    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.

    When we illuminate, we will. Will we be alive; we've seen change! Feel me...I'm already there. The guy was sure he wasn't racist. In my 2 scores plus, I've never thought about that, and I won't!

    I am so glad that my study does show in my poetry. Don't worry about being color blind. When you get to heaven the blacks will be in the majority and the whites will be totally outnumbered. No racial discrimination there! God does everything backwards but justice wins out in the end. God bless, Maureen

    I never thought to do this. I couldn't count them if I tried. I teach students from all over the world ESL!!! It will be a glorious world when people see past skin color and all the other BS biases, won't it?

    ML Avatar Scribe ML Date: 5/26/2012 6:27:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Yes I agree wholeheartedly!
  1. Date: 5/26/2012 5:50:00 PM

    I'll have to say if it wasn't for the Lord Jesus Christ. I would see the world in a more ignorant way. One thing he has taught me all of us (acception to those truly doing evil) we are all children of God. Everything he reveals to us is for one purpose only, because he knows we will be happier when we follow Him. This is such a simple concept, but it amazing how many of our brothers and sisters cannot see this. If everyone only realized that we have bodies because in the beginning we chose to follow the savior.

    Yes, but if you pose the question to someone isn't it race baiting?

    ML Avatar Scribe ML Date: 5/26/2012 5:32:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Yes. This guy I met knew how many friends of difference he had, but said he wasn't racist. I never new how many Different friends I have or had, and I will not start counting now.....
