Black And White We Are In This Together

Black and White Join Hands

I Love You Do You Love Me

There are laws, rules and regulations to keep us from doing the wrong thing. Now that is a thing worth thinking about. So it would seem that we are not that much different from nonhuman animals. We are not as civilized as we would like to think we are. Other animals are put in cages, and so are some of us.

There are thousands of laws throughout the world with the sole purpose of keeping humans in line to avoid chaos and a complete breakdown in civilized society. Why would this be? Are we not supposed to be the higher-level thinkers of the animal world? If this is so, why do we need the police, the military and other means of enforcement just to keep us from killing each other.

Laws are broken all the time, even when we know there could be punishment—which none would be good—to follow. Are we just wild by nature with an inclination to do the wrong thing? And hate for one another is the worst behavior there is without a “real” reason. It is not moral, it is costly and it is not right. I love you unless and until you do me harm; harm of any kind.

We have laws to regulate our relationship with each other. You know, how we treat one another; laws to make us act human. Why do we need these laws? Why can’t we all just get along. It wastes a lot of money and resources to hate. Just think about the good we could do if we did not think the wrong way about race and color. And gender should not be left out either. It is not just Black and White. It is all that is in between. But there is no doubt, that the relationship between the ends of the color spectrum is what seems to cause the most concern.

I think I know the reason. Ask me and I will tell you for you need to know.
