Red, Black, White, Yellow, Brown

What do these have in common aside from being colors? What do they mean in the US?

A lot of people don’t realize that they stereo type people into the basic categories above. How do they do it? The color of their skin. Look at the people around you, what is the first thing you see … the color of their skin. It has been this way since the beginning of time.

Red: when people think of someone who is of native American they will often say that they are a red man. The reason is that when the Americas were found the Native Americans were considered to be red, savages.

Black: Most African Americans are considered by most people to be black, under educated and that is so wrong. The person who holds the highest office in this country has been criticized as being less intelligent than he is due to the color of his skin. I remember and still hear the people say that the President wasn’t born in the US and that he isn’t a true American due to the fact that he is of a different color than they feel he should be.

White: Most people of the European nations are considered to be white in color. Some have chosen to use that color as a way to make themselves feel like they are better than others. They have tried time and time again to make those of a different color feel less important.

Yellow: People of the Asian countries are often referred to as that. Why? They aren’t yellow in color, some of the oldest cultures in the world and people chose to put them down.

Brown: those of Hispanic nationality often have to deal with this label for what ever reason. They are often some of the hardest workers and again some of the oldest cultures are there.

The thing is that the difference between all these people is one gene in the DNA string. It is just like the reason that some have blue eyes and some have green.

We are all people, the blood is no different between us. We need to take the blinders off and see the truth.
