I believe what may help a bit more in American history would be more interracial couples cast for parts. I see a lot of shows cast for parts of white couples being with white couples and black couples being with black couples. Why do I believe this may be a slight issue? We are the most prejudice country in all of the planet earth. We are not born into racism. We don’t come out of the womb calling others outside their names or say I am black so I will have to be with the black kids. Our introductory to racism starts with our parents and then our surroundings, then our experiences.
Education is the key. Everyone is different but if people want to put everyone into one category, we will not survive as a people. I remember watching Glory, Tuskegee Airmen, and other movies based upon true documentary resources. One thing that moved me was the comment in Tuskegee Airmen when General Benjamin O. Davis said “Are we Americans when the mood suites you?” Wars cannot be won without the help of everyone pitching in, both black and white, yet we beat upon each other’s character so badly. If a black guy walks into a bar, he is looked upon as he don’t belong there. If a white guy walks into a bar, he is believe to be safe and sane. It is a shame that most black or mixed people have to work three times harder just to gain respect versus a white person that has respect off the bat.
Now, it is coming in the realm of animals. White dogs are adopted before black dogs. Really? So an animal that lives off of instinct and do what nature grooms inside of the animal is judged on their coat (fur color). Really?
This country needs an enema…
