I am Black. I am White.
I am Arab; and I’m a Jew.
Don’t be surprised when I say
I’m Latino and a Hindu.
You see – fact is I’m all of you—
and you are me. So we are all each other—what does this mean?
Why do we post barriers…Satan’s walls;
whether it’s color, cultural, or just insecurity ;
maybe for financial gain we belittle others …
But when does it all stop?
All the hate, the hurting , the fighting , the killing!
We MUST all do as a group what we do on a one-to-one.
No more pain! Just look into the eyes of those we hurt.
Why can’t we see what’s reflected? Those feelings –the
ones that should tell us a basic thought. That is
we are not Black, not White , not Arab , nor Jew.
That we are not Latino… nor Hindu…that we are all the same –
We are all each other …. HUMAN!
