Re: Racism (Minority vs. White)
"nobody touches you. We're always behind this metal and glass. I think we miss that touch so much, that we crash into each other, just so we can feel something" That quote is from the movie Crash. For everyone who hasnt seen it, it is about racism today. by this quote one of the characters mean that sometimes its like no one is connecting with us or feeling with us, so the only way to have a connection or have a feeling is to crash into someone by doing something mean or making a racist comment. racism comes from people with problems that lie within themselves. they must make themselves feel like they are dominent and/or most important so they must point out someones differences. racism...bigotry...discrimination are all code words for hate. and hate is not a beautiful word. so will racism every be completely demolished...well there are always going to be insecure ugly people in this world so probably not, but can people like us make a difference? You bet!
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.It is our light,not our darkness that most frightens us.There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.We are all meant to shine as children do.And as we let our own lights shine,we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.As we are liberated from our own fear,our presence automatically liberates others.
