Racial Discrimination Is Needlessly Taught To Children.
We are not born discriminating against anything other than the forces of life that might imperil us. I’m sure all of us have seen beautiful pictures on Facebook or similar of multi racial children hugging and kissing each other like the dearest family member.
Racial discrimination is taught. Learned by a child in most circumstances by watching one or both parents modeling such a behavior. Eventually that discrimination becomes embodied by the child as if the child had been wronged by the other race directly. And of course, in a world of racial disparity, many children grow up experiencing that racial distinction and feel isolated for the experience.
It does not have to be like this, I believe humans are the only animal in the animal kingdom that creates something like a racial disparity, but I could be wrong in that assumption. I know that growing up in Woodland Hills and being allowed to take the Jewish holidays when the other students had to go to school made me subject to teasing that I really did not like. So much so that I really did not want to take the holidays off. And in all honesty that racial discrimination is minutia in comparison to what others are experiencing daily.
The origin of the problem is education. The United States has devalued education year after year by under funding it, pretending that state lotteries will make the circumstances so much better when in actuality they have not. Our institutions of higher knowledge have sold out decades ago and facilitate massive streams of students from other countries who are dying to come to the United States to learn because our top education is so valuable. In the meantime, the education system puts our young adults into massive debt via student loans in favor of enslaving the next generation of workers.
If the United States has any hope of surviving for numerous centuries into the future, it must start with a revolution in education to eliminate racial discrimination.
Putting a preying mantis like Betsy DeVos in charge of education in this country while she is preying upon our young adults is unconscionable in my opinion. It shows a direct and reckless disregard for the foundation of anything that can change our country from an education perspective.
That revolution should start by doing everything it can to eradicate racial stereotypes and unfounded prejudice. It should put the priority towards helping children understand one another, feel compassion for one another, empathize with one another and teach that generosity starts with personal attitude.
No one needs a smile more than one who has none left to give. Children instinctively smile at each other. But as they get older, life gives them reasons to hold that smile back. As a nation, we are better than this. We are the beacon of freedom in the world and that freedom has to start with civility to one another, love and compassion.
I hope your Saturday opens into great relaxation, enjoyment of friends and family and a increased desire to start next week trying to become part of the solution. Our country needs you desperately right now. Find some tiny thing that you can do and add to the solution to eliminate racial discrimination.❤️

No one has yet realized the wealth of sympathy, the kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure. -Emma Goldman
