During my talks with others, even those on YouTube, and watching interviews, I cannot help but to notice something of interest.
Our last names are surnames that makes the majority of our nationalities. When I see a last name of Beggs, I know that is a German name. However, this person is from Great Britain. He considers himself as English, not German and not German English, but just English. There are people of Africa decent that say they are English, not African English, but just English. Other nationalities of people in England say the same, no matter their last name. People in America will say they are German, Italian, or Irish. They will not say they are just American.
This is interesting because England had slaves and they had freed their slaves way before America even considered it, yet we are suppose to be the best country in the world. Even so, black soldiers gotten paid less money in the military than white soldiers during the Civil War, yet we are suppose to be the best country in the world. Why is this so? Why are we so closed-minded? I have heard women say they want that white knight on a white horse riding in the sunset. Out of curiosity, and to pick the brain, I asked why does the knight have to be white on a white horse? Most women say white is pure and black is evil. I defend by asking if they had ever seen Star Wars, Return of the Jedi? Luke is a good guy, yet dressed in all black when he met his father. It is in our heads to state color first instead of just saying what we desire. Look at President Obama. Lots of people say his is our first black president. I disagree. He is our first biracial president as his mother is white (German decent). When you call him black, just like others do me, you are only looking half of what we are, not all of us. Even so, why can’t we just be Americans?
People say they are Christians or they believe in “their” God. Do they? Do they believe in their God because if so, would they be the way they are if God was sitting with them or standing right beside them?
Judgment day… a day some may fret. However, why fret IF you are doing good by each other?
