Color Me Blind… a must see, this is funny!!!

I have had an expereince somewhat similar to this a few different times in my life.  Not exactly the same, but I can relate to it.  Watch it and let me know what you think, I think it is good for us as a nation to continue to dialogue around the subject of race and diversity.  Freestyle with me…

    Drew,

    This bring me back to my days in PA. These student’s did a great job showing the stuggles when we engage in a multi cultural/racial group that is dominated by one cultural/racial group. I would encourage everyone to continue the dialogue and work through these issues. For those who proclaim Christ as the Risen Savior, we are one body so let’s learn how to talk and engage with one another.

    12The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. 13For we were all baptized by[c] one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 1 Corinthians 12:12-13

    Thanks to all of you who are freestylin about these issues!

    LOL…this video is so hilarious yet certainly rings true for many of my experiences in white liberal spaces. I think this is why I stopped messing with the socialist activists.

    I found it inane but I guess that’s just because I’ve grown up in an area of mixed races who are accomplished, mature and respectful. Sorry the rest of you live someplace else.

    Well, I am not sure it has much to do with geographical location. I think it has more to do with the culture of white liberalism and political correctness. It is about folks who claim “to understand” and be in the know. However, many times they ultimately want blacks and minorities around so they can say they “are not racist”, while still holding on to all the power and control, and dismissing the voices of the very people they say are “underprivileged”.

    I personally don’t like that term, I talk about oppressed, discriminated against, marginalized, but underprivileged is just too passive. We need to also talk about the “overprivileged”, but that is not a word that liberals like to use in polite conversation. In fact it is not a word at all… interesting isn’t it!
