In reference to my previous post where I wrote – During the third quarter a large (black) man was making his way past the people sitting right below us. He wore a Barack Obama t-shirt and ballcap. I got his attention and said “great shirt!” The Man gave him a thumbs up as well. My new acquaintance sitting next to me watched the entire transaction and then leaned away from me and turned in his seat so all I could see of him was his back. From then on he only talked to his friend and made sure there was plenty of space between us.
I have no idea if that man turned his back on me because of racism or political beliefs or a combination of both.
What I do know is that in my 50 some years on this planet I have yet to discover a race, a colour, a belief, a gender, a sexual preference, or even an age that is better than the other.
What always stands out in my mind are the words ‘created equal’.
If someone can prove to me that one of the above is superior to the other than I’ll be happy to agree.
As it stands – you’re the same as me. No better – no worse.
