Alright. Have we actually taken a second and realize what we are arguing about? Have we even thought of just thinking for a moment what we are really fighting for? It is pretty astounding that Color of race is still an issue these days. I mean, with what courageous men and woman have done in the past to create waves of change, a thought-provoking idea of : "Maybe we are not that different, maybe it is about character, achievements and abilities that make individuals who they are" I for one think all this "pulling the 'race' card" is nonsense. It is nonsense that we are still giving awards, opportunities and what not just based on someone's skin color.
It is nonsense that people get so angry at each other because of unchangeable history that one nation has done to another nation and yet because of what happened, there are many today who have not changed one bit but simply acting as Slave owners in an entirely different fashion. To be a Slave Owner today, you are either withholding or barring someone of chances and opportunities based on the color of someone's skin.
I happened to be born white, can I change this. Sure, I could hop down to the medical store, pay my money, go in debt whatever and have my pigment changed, will that make any difference in the end. No. Sadly, people who are fighting for "there needs to be more diversity in the Oscars, there needs to be more diversity here, there needs to be more diversity there. Have you thought at all that maybe you are the one who is keeping this diversity alive? This separation rather than collaboration? Look, maybe there is a controversy here, maybe there is a correlated effort of keeping this segregation alive, yes even in the entertainment business but how about this. Before we start making radical changes of seeing more and more skin color everywhere, lets start seeing a person for who they are and what they have achieved and their abilities in doing so. Denzel Washington, a phenomenal actor, Daniel Day Lewis, also an amazing actor. Sidney Poitier, Robin Williams, Robert De Niro, Jamie Foxx, Viola Davis, Halle Berry, Brad Pitt, the list goes on. It is okay to say that maybe Will Smith's "Concussion" was just not a good movie, the story, the way it was directed who knows, there are just some movies that don't resonate due to the presentation of it, not due to anyone's skin color.
I am more interested in moving on from the past, which WE CANNOT CHANGE, what happened happened. What we do have though is the ability and chance to MOVE ON. We can move on, away, so that we don't see segregation happen ever again, but clearly this is not what the masses want. The masses and sheeple want Justice for something and lay it on someone who is not "deserving" of such justice. I nominate Character. I nominate Ability. I nominate Integrity. I nominate Humanity. Diversity to me today, is simply segregation masked as the wolf in sheep's clothing. Stay beautiful, EVERYONE.
