The Natural Race

There is but one natural race; that is, the human race. To categorize humankind and to sink to the shallowness of collective identity is to deny nature and manipulate human relations.  Differences in physical manifestation are what they are:  Differences in physical manifestation.  I have dark hair (well, I HAD dark hair before the forces of nature turned some gray while turning othe…rs loose!!), yet I am no different than those whose hair is blond.  My eyes are hazel; the eyes of others are blue or solid greeen; what of it?

Our shallow concepts of racism, nationalism, and culturalism have weakened the fibre of humanity and succeeded only in fraying the fabric into an unfortunate mess.  When our thinking digresses to “our side against their side” and “those people” and “our kind” as opposed to “their kind”, then we have taken it upon ourselves to rise above nature and write the rules of for ourselves.  It is easy to plunder others for profit, or to wage war against others when we view humanity along such shallow lines of reasoning.
