Who the Heck Jew Think You Are? A Look at Hate
I don't want to hear it!
Maybe I should stop watching TV, perhaps I should unplug my radio and I most certainly ought to cancel my subscription to the local newspaper… if even then, I cannot hide or deny the ugliness and the hatred in the world, well then there is always the option of relocating to a cave. OR… we can just stop hating people! Hate takes more energy than love, you have to hate on purpose but you can love accidentally. I’m not a tree-hugger and I’m not part of a World Peace Campaign, I’m just a girl, a girl that shares this planet, like it or not, with all walks of life and you know what? I don’t hate anyone!
What difference does it make?
I’m going to expose myself and let the world in on a little secret… I’m white! I’m white, or so I’ve been told, at least that’s the color I see when I look in the mirror, personally, I think it's more of a peachy color, but regardless of how you define it... it makes me safe, safe to much hatred. What does any of this mean? Nothing. I’m white… not perfect; the color of my skin does not make me, in anyway, better than anyone else. Truthfully, it’s what’s under the skin that makes a person, why is this so hard to understand? Are we that ignorant that we can't see past skin color? How does the pigmentation of one's skin determine his worth?
See the child... imagine...
That'd be her... the lady of the hour
Flipping through the channels on my television as I lay in bed the other night, I came across footage of an Aryan Nations Rally, Gathering or Parade of some sort, this was on either the History Channel or National Geographic Channel, it was not a clip from The Jerry Springer Show, though it might as well have been. I don’t find it necessary to go into detail explaining what the Aryan Nations is about as I’m sure most of you already know they are a white supremacy “organization”. The basic concept of this group is that the white race is superior to all others and I, quite frankly, have a hard time watching a dumb blonde, in overalls, proudly sporting a shirt with the swastika in the center, screaming in “red-neck” tongue that her “kind” is somehow, superior to others. Really? You might want to reconsider your spokespeople. After watching enough people stomping and saluting to the beat of how great whites are; I grew tired and turned it to educational programming; “The Family Guy”.
Days before catching that disgusting display of hatred humans, I stumbled upon Matthew Shepard’s story, a tragic murder of a boy, a boy that was homosexual. In 1998, Matthew Shepard was brought to a remote location where is was beaten and tortured and left to die, all in the name of hate. He was 21 years old.
This is only one of millions of tragic stories, unnecessary hatred, unwarranted murders and families that have to pick up the pieces after a loved one is stolen from them.
Is this too hard?
The color of my skin is obvious, though it might change a few shades in the summer months. You don’t know to look at me, my religion or my sexual preference… if either factor contributes to how you judge me, then I’m not telling! What difference does it make? I live how I live and I don’t hurt anyone in the process, I love all people and want to help my neighbor when I can. If you live the same way, then I don’t care the color of your skin, the God you follow, or who eats dinner at your table. Love and nurture your children, respect your fellow man and lend a helping hand if you have one to spare; is this concept so hard to understand? Like it or not, we are all forced to live together, why not appreciate your neighbor, you might need them some day.
Love Thy Neighbor?
