I really don't care what anyone feels about this statement because it can not be unjustified. You may dislike The Mexicans, but they can be accepted as Caucasian easily. You may dislike the Jewish ethnicity, but they can also be accepted as Caucasian. And yes, I know I didn't use a hyphen between the AA word, it is really just another sign of separation between the races.
It is felt we should just get over slavery like it was a dream, just like the Holocaust was a dream. Denial runs amuck. Kind of hard to get over generations of families being destroyed and scattered. We may never know who are our true relative. By acceptance I mean apologizing for something our ancestors have done. And I say 'OUR' because I am quit sure there has to be an iota of White blood in my DNA, just by the color of my skin. I say 'OUR' because I know from history some greedy, vengeful Africans aided in our down fall. It is no harder than me going to my neighbor and saying I'm sorry my brother is/was a murderer and a thief and stole or hurt your family. Sure I wasn't there, but I know he did it and I apologize and I empathize and sympathize.
This strip down, slap in the face of our POTUS hurt a lot of people of all colors and may have brought the entire race relationship a tiny step backward. It just shows we have not gotten over. It shows a Black person in America still has to be validated. I am saddened. I felt lower than a zero. Some are still unable to accept the even status of the African American race. Some are unable to accept the equal footing of any race beyond their own. I truly believe if we start celebrating the accomplishments of every race, teach our children about every ethnicity on a daily basis, the differences will be less defined and we will become more accepting.
