Until next time . . .
I believe that there will be no race, except the “Human Race” one day. Can you see this happening? Our society is diverse and this is the beauty that we seldom appraise in our cultures.
We as brothers and sisters would feel more connected and united if we felt the connect towards each other. Ethnicity and cultures are what has kept us apart since the beginning of time.
Prejudice and malicious behavior towards individuals of other ethnicities evolved because of our DIFFERENCES.
. . .Skin Complexion, Eye Color, Hair Texture, Accents.
These traits keep us in a box, a small box. What is going to happen when we all are people “of color”? So to speak we ALL are of color. I have yet to meet a “White” person. Complexions vary in all races.
Let’ embrace each other with open arms! We are all family. We are all Humans. We belong to one race, and one race only.
We are the Human Race.

Black History is America’s History. -
As a student I have observed over the years that; Black History is not covered in U.S. History like it should be. Clearly the triumphs that African-Americans went through in America is extremely signifigant to America’s History, yet it is not covered in our U.S. History textbooks.
At my school in order to even cover Black History, you have to sign up for a separate class; African-American Studies. There is no reason why the two significant pieces of History is separated in the majority of text books. There is no such topic of ‘simply’ Black History (so to speak).
Do you believe Black History should be separated from U.S. History?

Recently I was browsing through Youtube videos on being Biracial and I ran across this video. As soon as I watched this video I knew I had to upload this to my Blog to share with others.
There were many questions that raced through my mind from watching and hearing others breifly speak out on their Biracial experiences. I began to wonder more about the word “Mulatto”, and it’s meaning.
Mulatto (noun) - the first-generation offspring of a black person and a white person.
(origin) - Spanish mulato, from mulo mule, from Latin mulus
