Black and white in a color world

When I was a child, it was wrong for people of different races to marry.  Before you think I’m ancient, I’m 53.  I was born in 1960.  Some people still struggle over it – ask General Mills that showed a bi-racial couple in a Cheerios commercial (

My parents were accepting of bi-racial marriages but they worried about the children – back then “mixed” kids were not accepted by anyone.  Jump ahead 50 years and “mixed” kids are often the most attractive, popular people in the highest positions (umm look at the White House for example).  Who would have ever guessed that in 1960 a “mixed” kid would be born and become president.

I would like to mix everyone up.  Just think how beautiful we would be!  We would all have a nice brown skin tone with interesting eyes and we might all enjoy each other more.

There wouldn’t be racial hate crimes.  No black neighborhoods, white neighborhoods, segregated churches, schools, minority statistics, or affirmative action.  We could all join NAACP.

Would it really help?  I don’t know but I do know that we would be a beautiful mix of humanity!

Ecclesiastes 3:11

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.Image
