”My child, you say you have eyes to look, but why don’t you see?
My child, you say you have ears to hear, but why don’t you listen?
My child, you say you have a heart that beats, but why don’t you feel?”
To stay up-to-date with recent national events… SINTERKLAAS AND ‘’ZWARTE PIET’’. I once and for all give you my opinion on what is becoming World War III.
PEOPLE, can you not see? Are you blind, perhaps? Can you not evaluate this situation and do you not realise what is going on???
This is turning into something more than racism, this is turning into hatred for one another. No longer hate towards another race, but towards a friend, a family member. The blacks are against the whites, but some do understand each other. You all try to convince each other and try to push your opinions in everyone’s throats. Well, WAKE UP CALL, that ain’t gon’ happen.
This whole situation is blown out of proportion and is transforming into something bigger than just the tradition. AT THIS MOMENT, I am no longer talking about Sinterklaas, or Zwarte Piet. I am no longer talking about white people or black people. I am talking about ALL OF YOU PEOPLE IN GENERAL…ALL OF US.
Don’t you have bones? Don’t you have a heart and a brain? Are you able to think, laugh, get hurt? … Are you? If the answer is YES, then You are officially a human being. 100% of people reading this post is a human being, regardless of their race and skin colour.
I find it very sad and it actually hurts me to see how mean and awful people can be towards each other. If I check my Facebook wall, all I see is ”friends’’ mocking each other, calling each other names, cursing etc. Is this friendship? Is this why you are friends on Facebook? Do you not feel hurt by their words and their opinions?
Fights are the results of an arguement. It is sad, and it makes me sad.
Now, let me tell you something, because this goes way back to slavery. When the slaves were given their freedom, believe me, all they aimed for were EQUAL RIGHTS. They wanted to be equal and live in peace with each other, regardless of another person’s background. Equal….peace…..
What we are going through right now is not equality nor is it peace. This is actually the beginning of how a war starts. I can see no love, I can feel no love. Where is the respect, people? WHEN WILL YOU DECIDE TO WAKE UP AND REALISE HOW WRONG WE ARE ALL BEHAVING??? I honestly feel disgusted by the way some of you react. We should all strive to live in a community of peace, respect, toleration, support and love for your fellow-human being.
My father is black, my mother is white. My brother and I were born, we came from them. This means that my black father was welcomed with open arms into my white mother’s family. This means that my white mother was welcomed with open arms into my black father’s family.
Control your anger, keep in your opinion and think of others, respect them as you want to be respected.
THIS IS MY VOICE. I am grey, for I am black and white…mixed.
“If there were two poor kids, nearly dying of drought. One was black and one was white. You are in the possession of one bottle of water, which could possibly save one of the children…Which child would you choose to save?
I’d share my bottle…why…because they are CHILDREN, after that comes race.
”I think the whole world is addicted to the drama,
only attracted to things that’ll bring you trauma.
But if you only have love for your own race,
then you only leave space to discriminate.
And to discriminate only generates hate,
and when you hate then you’re bound to get irate.
Madness is what you demonstrate,
and that’s exactly how anger works and operates.
Now, you gotta have love just to set it straight,
take control of your mind and meditate,
let your soul gravitate to the love.
If love and peace is so strong,
why are there pieces of love that don’t belong?
Ask yourself is the loving really gone?
So I can ask myself really what is going wrong
in this world that we’re living in, people keep on giving in.
Not respecting each other, deny thy brother,
a war is going on but the reason’s undercover.
I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder,
as I’m gettin’ older, y’all, people gets colder.
Whatever happened to the values of humanity?
Whatever happened to the fairness in equality?
Instead in spreading love we’re spreading animosity.
Lack of understanding, leading lives away from unity.
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feeling under
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feeling down
There’s no wonder why sometimes I’m feeling under
Gotta keep my faith alive till love is found now ask yourself…
FATHER, help us, send some guidance from above,
’cause people got me questioning…
Where is the love?”
