It’s my blog so I don’t have to stick with my subject. The following falls under the category of ‘Just sayin.’
Today there was news about the people of the Ukraine saving children in harm’s way by sending fleets of vans to the east and escorting them to the west. The author wrote the story in such a way to pluck the heartstrings of the reader fearing for the fate of the endangered children.
Today there was news about the people of Central America saving their children in harm’s way by sending them north to the United States, fearing for the fate of their own children. The author wrote the story in such a way to horrify Americans in fear of being overrun by brown-skinned children.
Why the difference?
Ukrainian children are white and they are far enough away that if they make it or not, we will not know. Blue-eyed children are angels.
Spanish children are similar to the Indian Untouchables in a sense. Some of them clean for white Americans, they do the work Americans don’t want to do. Many don’t want them here. They especially don’t want more of them here. Brown-eyed children aren’t as precious as blue-eyed ones in some people’s eyes.
I don’t believe any of that, but I can think of no other reason Ukrainian children would receive positive press when they are being saved and Spanish-speaking children should be regarded with fear.
Let’s face it. Americans have a double standard toward whites and people of color. My suggestion, go to National Geographic’s website: http://shop.nationalgeographic.com/ngs/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=2001246&gsk&code=SR90002&keyword=national+geographic+genome&OVMTC=Exact&site=&creative=34441943297&OVKEY=national%20geographic%20genome&url_id=42940401&adpos=1t1&device=c&gclid=CjkKEQjwiPWcBRCTj_-Vz8fE3cMBEiQAZIMSUt4wgLVd8Tb9wP38qjqbdsqLvNZB8W_3EpI3oyNyLWTw_wcB
There you can find information about the Genographic Project. If you send in your genome for testing, you will find we all come from Africa, ultimately. Everyone living today is a descendant of Africans. Many of us have Asian ancestry, European ancestry, as well as American Indian ancestry.
What does this all mean? We are all related – all related. Not a single race is from a ‘pure’ race. The idea of a pure race is an 18th century fantasy. There is no master race, there is no pure race, there is no race more precious than another. We are one – all one.
If you don’t believe that, Jesus, not a white European, loves you.
