Erasing Racism



I don’t care what color your face is because the shades of mood in a schizophrenic or a bipolar are more resonant than your black or white or red or yellow.

Martin Luther King concentrated on the character of the thing and I feel the concentration of the thing is more important than the race.  Erase the shade. Black or white is so trivial that race is overrated.

I am different from you in ways that we cannot see.  The complexity of my mind is the dyslexia of my attitudes.

Race has become the all to do.  But it is nothing.  I have wandered through the hills of prejudice and been hated as a Jew.  I never cared. The opinions of idiots don’t impress me.

Racism is a poor person’s excuse for failure.  It is hatred replacing love. It is the anger of a liberal pretending he doesn’t hate difference, that he really loves diversity.
