Default Colors and Countries

We gotta stop calling ourselves by colors and countries

how can we begin to erase these stupid labels ?

it's all heritage man, your nationality and your race says alot about who you are... the struggle your people went though, it makes an impact on the character of all who are born afterwards. it's good to have some sense of pride in that, because that's who you are.

but at the same time, you're right - we gotta stop being so callous towards locking ourselves down into defined roles; and we needn't let these things bias us and make us hateful towards others who are different.

Colours are always talked about and how we sholdn't label and divide others and ourselves by that. If you mentioned countries also, but here you are leaning towards people calling themselves by what colour they are.

It seems like at one time only black and white people labelled themselves and the other by colours black and white because it is opposites. All other races began being labeled or labeled themselves some other colour in between.

Countries are even more complex. In North America and most of Europe, country politics and the physical boundaries are clearly cut. Many other places the boundaries are just "guessed" in a way just so they can draw a map with a country.

There are many peoples that live in different country that do not associate themselves with that country and basically have no nationality.

I dont think we'll ever get rid of labels but yeah the color thing and the country thing has always seemed wierd. I mean, you're born in the borders of a country- so what? And a dark skin guy in Asia isn't the same as one in Africa.

Nationalism may be even worse than racism. I don't think there's anything wrong with havin a sense of family and where they've come from but that shit also allows people to starve to death miles from a town that has a problem with obsesity. And then the attitude is "Well they aren't Americans, so it's really not our problem."

While we should be able to step back and look at that and realize, "What the fuck are you talking about? A human is a human. Lets get these people some food and lets find a way to make this whole thing work better for everybody." The goverments of the world have just fooled us into thinking we're not in this together. As long as we believe that, shit will stay the same.

Post of the Year nomination. Your totaly right. Nationalism does promote racism on the deepest levels. What we need to look out for now is the NWO using that to justify itself. But on personal levels we all need to read this again and think differently.

Me personaly - I sponsor a child in Chad through World Vision - even though I can't afford rent these days - that kid gets his money sent to him.
