I fucking see color. And race. And Religion. And sexual orientation. And myriad other things. You know why? Because I am an adult with eyes and the sense god gave a slightly advanced chimp.
|My friend Terry made this. You're welcome.|
We live in a world where black boys are marrying white boys and raising Asian children. We live in a world where lesbians can be clergy. We live in a world where Muslims and Christians protect each other while the other prays. We live in a world where mixed babies are celebrated as the most fucking beautiful thing ever created (which they really are). I live in a house where a brown man can love a white woman in the South and no one bats an eye.
For right now, in this moment at least, I want to remember that there is some beauty in this world. Even in the midst of all the ugliness and the hurt, there is real fucking beauty and chances are pretty good that you are a part of that beauty.
PS Here's a band a buddy of mine told me to check out yesterday. I did and they don't suck. Give them a listen. Or don't cuz you're an asshole who never pays it forward.
