Rarely have I read anything as disturbing as the article in the News Leader by Glenn Miller of Aurora. http://www.news-leader.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060104/OPINIONS03/601040303/1006
I read this 3-4 days ago and am still haunted by it. "Systematic genocide against the white race?"
I would be very interested to see this person's family tree. Chances are very great that his "race" is a mixture of many different bloodlines (for lack of a better term). Honestly, how many of us in this great country of ours can really say that we have a pure bloodline? What would that be anyway? English? French? Which nationalities would be acceptable to mix in?
In animals it is pretty simple. You can trace your Quarter Horses, etc (the registered ones anyway) back through the generations. Your foal can only be registered if you are able to produce documentation of this bloodline. In other words, the registry exits so that the bloodline remains pure. In theory you get superior horses and for the most part that is true. But I have ridden some fantastic horses that were grade (of unknown heritage).
This has absolutely no benefit to humans. Are we to breed runners or jumpers or thinkers now?
And this is my logical side talking. As for my emotional side....well... let's just say that for the first time, I actually felt threatened. And consequently, guilty. I am disturbed to this extent by someone that makes me feel threatened for the first time. What about all of the people out there that feel threatened most of the time? As usual, I feel the need to do something. Help in some way. But again, I am not quite sure what I can do to help. And so I withdraw even further, turning my back to the people of the world and embracing nature.
How many of us can really examine ourselves and find no judgement. No stereotyping. Only acceptance.
I am as guilty as the next person as much as it embarrasses me to say. And I work each day to be more accepting and less judgemental. But never like this. Judging someone who is hypocritical....I've done it. Judging someone who will steal and cheat...I've done that too. But never this. Never have I thought, even in my angriest moment, that anyone with a different skin color or nationality, or religious or political belief should be eliminated. Never have I felt such deep hatred as this man obviously feels. And I thank the diety that I have been spared that hatred.
We get one shot folks. One chance of undetermined length. What will we do with it?
