Why do we hate?

~ We hate because we are taught to hate. We hate because we are ignorant. We are the product of ignorant people who have been taught an ignorant thing which is that there are four five different races. There are not four or five different races, there is only one race on the face of the earth and we are all member of that race, its the human race but we have separated people in to races so that some of us can see ourselves  as superior to the others. We thought it would work but it hasn’t work and its bad for everyone. Its time to get over this business. There is no genes for racism, there is not genes for bigotry. You are not born as a bigot, you have to learn to be bigot. Anything you learn, you can unlearn. Its time to unlearn our bigotry. Its time to get over this thing and its best we get over this pretty soon. I am an educator and it’s my business as an educator to lead people out of ignorance. The ignorance of thinking that you are better or worse then someone else because of the amount of pigment in your skin. Pigmentation has nothing to do with intelligence or with your worth as a human being. 

It’s time to get over Racism!
