Prejudice

Why do you hate me?
Is it because I am black and you are white?
Is it because I am white and you are black?
Is it because I am not from your country?
Is it because my God has a different name than your God?
Is it because my way of life is different from your way of life?
Is it because I am fat?
Is it because I am beautiful?
Do you hate me because you are threatened by me?
Do you hate me because you were told to?
Do you hate me because your leaders say you should?
Do you hate me because it is what others do?
What have I done to earn your hatred?
Why do you hate me?

I don't hate you.

This feels so much like real life (or trivia madness lol jk); the lousy way people treat others sometimes -- even the ones you call family. Maybe you should combine your Pearly Gates entry with this one. On a side note, I wonder if they have kitty cat wings in Heaven...good stuff, Sherri...carry on, girl!

Wow...[speechless]. Love it. Oh...your compliment on my poems motivated me to write more. Only one more so far. I'll write more. Read them at Milan's Mad Musings. Keep up the great...uh...whatever those things are that you write. Great things though!

In a Star Trek episode.. there were two aliens.. one of them had the left side of his head "black" and the right one "white". The second one had the right side "black" and the left one "white". The first alien was torturing the second one because.. he had the black colour in the wrong side.. It does not make sense, does it? Unfortunately is not only fiction.. the theater of Absurd.. welcome to reality :(
