Black or White, what are you? Really? Do you think there is a difference?

    I just had one of those funny situations. In the local grocery store parking lot I waved the car forward and the driver waved me forward. But we did it like five times. We started laughing and then recognized each other as being members of a library group pushing for more for after school stuffBastion just laughed and reached his hand out to shake mine and introduce me to his wife. "Bastion you old good for nothing" and "Dr Dierker ain't you got a driver?" Bastion is whiter then our president and I am darker than both. We did what brothers do, spit on our palm and shake on it. Maybe?

      K&T my adult children just had me to a ancestry deal. I was adopted with no proof left of my origins biologically. What we found out was a big snore, no buddy cared. My young son is a clear case of half and half, boy is he good looking.

      Eric  you are such a sweet heart ! I know your family must love you to pieces.
      Don't worry about your pass , many of us have the same story. But we can make the difference for our own.
      The greatest gift you share is your self .
      That's beautiful

      I have a mixture of Indian, German, and Dutch. Some of the most beautiful people are from a dark and white parent. They have a bronze color, something we whites would love to have. We are all human. God made us all and he loves us all.

    This is an interesting question, eric. My wife and I often hold our arms together and compare the difference in our colouring. I tan easily and she is very white (never tans).
    I once got a job working for an Aboriginal organisation in a small town called Woodford. One day one of the administrators from the Head Office came to visit and talk to the staff. Something came up in conversation and I told her I wasn't an Aboriginal Australian...she was surprised (even though I don't consider I have the typical features).
    I get on well with all races and colours, having both Filipino and Indonesian/Chinese daughters in law. etc.

      John, I worked in Southeast Asia for a bit. Oh man did I stand out as a different race. For years never an unkind word. My Asian in laws treat me special only aggravated that I cannot speak their language after so many years. Life is good if we choos

    Naw!  There's no "difference!"  When we cut; we ALL bleed!

    Isn't that something?  That's the way the "soul" is; no color!  I guess that's why GOD SAID HE is "no respecter of persons" (Romans 2:11)!

    Blessings
