Many people are secret racists some just are bold and more upfront about it. I don’t understand it. I was raised in middle class all black neighborhood with the crips. Black girls were very mean to me growing up. They would call me a wetback. My back wasnt wet I was born in new Jersey and never heard that term before. In high-school my Latino friends would get irritated if I hung out with the blacks vice versa. My mother told me this story of when I was a baby and she took me to the beach and another little white baby wanted to play with me. The mother grabbed her baby so fast as if she didn’t want my skin to rub off on her baby. I’ve been burned and hurt by MANY races. My question is this do I hate them all because if what they did to me? No! I would have to move to the mountains and hide and become a hermit. People hurt people out of ignorance and evil hearts. Another thing many families have half brothers or Sisters of a different races. You can’t even tell they are related. Siblings move to other countries and states and marry out of their race, which means that we have family around the world. When you get a blood transfusion do you ask the doctor if the blood was donated by a black, Japanese or a white? It doesn’t matter to you right because you are so desperate to to live another 5 years. Think about this, life is very stressful, the struggle is real. Why add anxiety about not liking someone from another country? Why carry that baggage? I do believe there is a lot of truths in stereo types but I’ve also learned to give each individual the benefit of the doubt. I wouldn’t be a diversed hairstylist if I my mother taught me to hate. My clientel is so diversed I love it!! I can do a relaxer on one client and bleach the next one. You know the one thing my clients and I talk about? We all talk about is the weather, celebrities, family drama, work etc. At the end of the day humans have more things in common but we tend to dwell on our 2% differences. That is where ignorance, hate, torture and killings come from. Let go of the baggage. Pray for your enemies forgive and move on. We are all brothers and sisters. Expand your horizons and eat some fried bananas, Thai and Korea food. You don’t know what you’re missing😊
How can you go to church and claim to love a God you can’t see if you hate his children that you can see? We are made in his image meaning we have the emotions that he has. Love, jealousy, empathy etc.
Matthew 22:39 “Your must love your neighbor as yourself.”
Let go of that negative baggage!! The only bag you should be carrying on your back is a Louis Vuitton 😍😂👜👛🤗😘
