I personally think people are taking this question out of context.
I don't view it as a racially at all. I could put white chicken on my grill or stove, and burn it, and it will burn black and impossible to eat. But I can open a box of chocolates and yum, eat them down without a thought to their color.
Regardless of our race, far down we dig up black soil that is healthy in minerals that grow our food. We look up to the sky and see white billowy clouds. We need daylight (white?) to see our way, but we need the darkness (black) to get a good nights sleep. They work together.
Black is mysterious, fear is of the unknown. White lights our way, so we don't stumble and fall. It has nothing to do with race, so why make it about race.
Back in the days the slaves were freed. But they were not given jobs, so they stole, and got by with violence because that's survival. Whites then feared blacks. That could be one way of looking at it. Regardless of how the Romans bread white blonde haired, blue eyed girls for sex slaves, and nobody in history is standing up for them. Nor are "us blondes" rebelling or even acknowledging it. We endure all the "blonde" jokes, but nobody ever seeks to put a stop to "a blonde moment is a dumb moment."
If a Black person falls down in the dark dirty soil while planting seeds for food, just because he goes and washes himself clean doesn't make him dirty or evil. His heart is what makes him pure or innocent, not his skin.
This is a very twisted question, and has nothing to do with race, until someone made it about race. It has to do with cleanliness, and mysteriousness. Nothing more, nothing less.
Peace be with you. -Kathy
