It’s what you think as much as what you say, although… If one is careful not to shout racial slur… Then you cannot stop them thinking it, not so? This issue is stereotyping, corrupt the flow… Not by heavy handed punishment… Or jail house confinement… But by education and awareness, to understand it’s causes… Let’s teach the new generation racial tolerance… Because unconscious racism can exist in all of us… Getting to the root of the problem… Needs to be discussed and not to be afraid of them… It’s not whether you think he/she is a racist or not… But their racist opinion been inside connect the dot… People’s racist opinions about another of a different color haven’t changed… So let’s tackle the cause, and the reasons, ideas we can exchange… Because, he/she is no different to English Football’s Luis or Terry… Just as we all are unconscious racist, scarrrrrrrrrrrry… ©Copyright November 2012 by Brian Pierre-Alexander © All Rights Reserved

Spoken like a true activist, and you're so right about all that you've said Debbie, but we have to create the New leaders within our homes and our community and not depend on the Government to do so for us if we really want a better future in those areas of Food, Shelter, Education, healthcare, tolerance and equality.

Such deep thought but since to rise up-needs some one to be put down..either we have to stop seeking to rise and embrace equailty [at least an equaity of need such as food, shelter, education and healthcare] or folks will always find a reason to exclude..sad but true, sex has excluded woman around the globe regardless of culture or race..Light & Love
