    What is more important; our race, our political affiliation or just being human?

    In today’s environment, it seems everyone labels themselves. Black or white, red or brown, isn’t it a distraction from a united world to define yourself as anything other than a human being? What are you?

    The answer should be "just being human" and that's something I try to be. It's also how I treat other people. It doesn't matter what color skin they have, how they dress, what job they have, their political/religious beliefs, and so on - they're human beings that have something to offer in this world. And no matter how we categorize ourselves in each one of those areas of life, we're never going to be exactly like anyone else. The parts make a whole which matches no one else.

    I like this question. sometimes I feel like im the only one who doesn't think race matters in the least. in fact I believe race is more an idea than a reality. the important thing is that we are all human being and we should treat each other as such. another thing to keep in mind is because we are all human we have lots of similar thoughts and struggles, but each person is unique as an individual despite race, religion, political views.

    I would like to say that I am a natural human (in spirit).We are all natural humans, disguising ourselves as something else. Learning, Peace, Love, Appreciation, these are a salutation to Unity consciousness.

    We are one Self~ Mattrick

    To realize we are human is the most important thing to everyone else and to the person who realizes it. Some of us never realize it until it's too later and yet others never realize it at all, whether they have a chance or not. Race and politics are important to social classes depending on when and where. I also think that the fact of life is such that morality is agreed upon in unison by all humans, but there is no objective or superior moral guideline by which we should live so really, nothing is important.
