THE PEOPLE SPEAK — It’s not all about us and our race

America. The land of “opportunity,” “equality,” “freedom,” “justice for all"? Other races also fought for the United States. Many were crippled, maimed, killed. Yet only one race mainly benefits from it all. People of other races’ benefits? Inequality, less jobs, getting racially profiled, injustice, less freedom. The result? Social unrest, of course.

Since God made this earth for all men who He “created equal,” why does one race have more than other races? Selfishness, greed. The only thing Columbus “discovered” was Indians living in this land. Later a scheme was thought of to bamboozle them for it. Such crookedness is partly to blame for people being frustrated and, no doubt, for so many crimes-robberies, burglaries, insurance fraud, gambling, dope selling, assaults, batteries, prostitution, murders, disrespecting authorities, etc.

Why ask why many American “minorities” are on welfare and/or drugs? People mistreated and/or not getting their fair share seemingly are fed up, don’t care anymore seeing racial discrimination. Moreover, hate brought hate. Some establishments claim that their organization is “fair,” and they even have (a few) different race people there trying to prove it. (How dumb and ignorant of you to think that people of other races can’t see your reasons behind doing that.) But when one ethnic group gets more jobs, better jobs, and even better volunteer work and other races don’t, racism is clearly very obvious.

What’s even worse is encountering these people who don’t even know how to do the jobs, who seemingly were only hired on because of their skin color. Some of them even break the job’s rules which they so snottily demand that other races strictly follow. What kind of ignorant, ego trip is that? (Talk about half-baked, fixer-uppers!)

The good or bad we knowingly dish out on life’s ever-turning table, someday, somehow, we’ll eat. In retrospect, we can selfishly remain part of the problems or realize that it’s not all about us and our race (red, yellow, white, brown, or black) and become part of the solutions.
