There is Only One Race ~ The Human Race ~ Re-Posted from March 24, 2012


The human race on Earth is the only race there is.

Whether we are discussing the differences in race, color, ethnicity, creed, financial status or gender, we must realize that on this planet, there is only one race, the human race.

Sometimes we try to hide our prejudices behind other reasons, to justify the positions we take politically, socially, environmentally, religiously, or any other way we human beings use to surpress the voice of others. We are more alike than any difference we profess.

The root cause of prejudice is fear, not hatred. While certain groups may be extremely angry about an issue, the underlying cause of anger is fear. Why are we so afraid of other people, their belief system, their culture, their gender? Think of how we respond to someone expressing a different religious viewpoint, or a different political viewpoint, or addressing uncomfortable issues such as homlessness and hungry children in our country and the world.

Fear promotes radical groups in any of the human categories mentioned. If we are truly serious about fixing our world, before we can build any bridges to repair the damage we have caused, we must eradicate the root cause of fear.

We have made great progress in this country and in the world. We should celebrate the strides we have made. But there is more to do, more to share, more to understand, more to forgive, more to let go. It is not about being right, or wrong, or making others right or wrong. There is no way to make up for the loss of life through war, violence, bloodshed, or retaliation. Two wrongs do not make a right. We need to be able to build bridges between rich and poor people, Christians/Jewish/Muslim/and all religions, men and women, Republican and Democrat, American/African/Chinese/Middle East. We need to build bridges to and for all people everywhere.

Despite all our unique differences, we all share this one beautiful planet. We are all born in the same way, we all breathe air while we are here, and we all die. We are all having a shared human experience. The Divine Spark of Life, that Divine Breath, our souls are another part of the human experience. Our souls are part of the fabric of our life. Without our souls we would cease to be. No one soul is better than any other soul on this planet, no matter what our pride (insane ego) might be telling us. God is working in and through each and everyone of us. We are loved beyond all measure by the Author of Life, no matter what has happened in our lives, for good or for not so good, The Divine Source loves us. There is only one race on this planet.

It’s the human race.

Namaste

My profile picture is a rose, symbolizing that we should all bloom where we are planted. I am planted in the garden of words of knowledge and inspiration, history and truth, quest and discovery. My latest book, MYSTERY OF THE STURBRIDGE KEYS - CHRISTMAS UNLOCKED, has uncovered the deepest mysteries of modern time, mysteries that were planted at the start of time. The theme in this book is: There is one race, the human race. It unveils the secrets of Christmas, Santa Claus, the Magi, Jesus and how Noah's sons repopulate the world through the empires. In the process you meet Abraham Lincoln, Charles Darwin, Charles Dickens, Harriet Tubman, and learn that former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama are eighth cousins, both with traces of English royalty through William the Conqueror and Charlemagne in their bloodlines. This book uses real history, ancient and pre-history in this dramatic, plausible fiction/fantasy novel. It took me over a year to research and a lifetime to experience.
