Interesting. I think a lot of conditioning has taken place in our society to the point where for many everything is in terms of black and white. However, I ponder if this would be the same story in areas that are heavily populated by Asians or Hispanics like certain parts of California for example. Good blog. Something to make you ponder, but also to take into consideration how much cultural knowledge does one possess.

I agree with you, it makes me cringe when people define others, and even by themselves by color. I think African Americans have had such an impact on a country in which we are the minority, is because of the oppression that we faced during the civil rights movement and preceeding before then. Those civil rights leaders did everything they could to get African Americans to where we are now, and now that we are finally in the conversation, we can't get out of it. And guess what, we shouldn't have too, because God made people different to show His glory in many different ways, shapes, colors, and languages, which is the beauty of it all. But of course, we as humans have to mess it up and it has unfortunately turned negative. As much as we like to "think" we are in a melting pot world, the truth is, my skin color and your skin color couldn't be more obvious to the rest of the world. Even among African Americans, we are very aware of who has dark skin, who has light skin, who looks better, who prefers what. It is all very ignorant, and no single one race is to blame. Everyone is to blame. All this "acting black", or "acting white", is irrelevant to what really matters. Our standard should be the ultamite judge of the world. And yet, here we are, still fighting against our different pigmented brothers and sisters.
