My friend is a “different” race than I am. I’m considered “white” and he is considered “black.” Aside from the fact that we are really both just shades of the same color which I call Human, are we really different?
He has two eyes, I have two eyes.
He has one nose, I have one.
He has one mouth, I have one.
He has two arms, I have two.
He has two legs, I have two.
He has two hands, I have two.
He has two feet, I have two.
He has ten fingers, I have ten.
He has one head, I have one.
He has hair, I have a little.
He has ten toes, I have ten.
He has a heart, I have one (really).
He has a stomach, I have a bigger one.
He has a brain, I used to have one.
So, why, pray tell, do people focus so much on the one apparent difference between us? Doesn’t that seem a little narrow? That’s how I see it at any rate.
Discuss, please. Enlighten me.Published in
