With the help of a few irresponsible news outlets, the racial tension generated by the Martin/Zimmerman story in Florida is so thick it could be cut with a knife.
Seemingly, the oppressed of generations past, particularly the so-called African-American community, refuse to let go of injustices their ancestors faced. In a peculiar context, this view can be understood. Nevertheless, it thwarts any real progress the present collective human soul desperately needs. Anyone thinking this isn't being exploited for political gain, including the Department of Justice, and racial divide hasn't been paying attention. Trayvon Martin looked like he could have been Barack Obama's son.
Our president's favorite word lately is "fair." This is not just a race issue. Various groups the world over feel the brunt of selection.
Racism is passe. Neanderthalish, if I may. A satisfaction of the ego. Regardless of racial or cultural ethnicity, there's no significant difference between any of us. Imagine that. Are we not all human? An old metaphor needs insertion here. "You can't judge a book by its cover." Judgment, pride, envy and vanity are undesirable conditions of the human psyche. Can we move on?
In my humble opinion, and God knows there's plenty of those, anyone even giving thought in terms of race is a simpleton displaying insecurity and immaturity.
Question: Who's winning the human race? Hey, Barry, all in love is fair.
