Everybody has the desire to feel superior to everyone else. It goes back to primitive man. Since there is nothing in nature that will back up that desire or claim, man looks anything to justify it. I may have a million dollars today and say I am superior, but tomorrow you may have a billion. You may be 6 feet tall, but later I may become 6 foot 5 inches. Race is something that a person is born into. It will not change by itself. So one culture dislikes another culture and their practices. Greed, ownership and the desire to possess the earth is also involved. Who is in charge, who is on top. The question arises: who will have the easy life and who will have the difficult life? The battle is on. Who will grab the majority of the world's resources and have power over all others? After the wars, they sling negative suggestions and insults at each other. The only true distinction is culture and a physical appearance. The way to be free of it is to see all of it as ignorance, and transcend it. Understand that all happiness comes from within and have high self esteem. Be beyond it by ignoring it. It only exists as concepts in some people's minds. It is their fantasy and their business. It only has power if you give it power. It is an illusion of the mind.
