    Strong people don’t put others down. They lift them up.

    “A new fascism promises security from the terror of crime. All that is required is that we take away the criminals’ rights — which, of course, are our own. Out of our desperation and fear we begin to feel a sense of security from the new totalitarian state.”

    Gerry Spencer

     

    No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate & if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than it’s opposite.

    Nelson Mandela,

    We must learn to live together as brothers & sisters. Or perish together as fools.

    Look at all those helpful suggestions. Martin Luther King also said something like, a person should not be judged by the color of their skin but instead by the content of their character” That came from his ” dream” speech.

    I went to McDonalds today to buy a white chocolate dipped ice cream. I was told that the special promotion had finished and they only had brown chocolate. Obviously brown takes precedence over white. I decided that a chocolate free week was called for so that is what I am doing. It is the principle of the thing. They missed out on a sale.
