Out of the mouth comes the abundance of your heart. If we start celebrating every race, sexual orientation and ethnicity, some issues can be eliminated.The sad thing about dealing with race issues is the fact, if you have never had a dealing with blatant racism you will believe the hype the issue doesn't exist. The color line is not imaginary, an illusion, nor is it a child's chalk drawing that can be erased with the swipe of the foot or the blast of a water hose. Minorites get a bad rap and when it comes to being Black, African-American, or whatever they want to call us, we are the first to be thrown under the bus. Just look at the candidates involved in the political circus going on for the role as the newest President of the U.S.
The African American race is 'the' most hated race in America. It is not (nothing but stereotype coming) because we are all lazy (n-word) sitting on the front stoop eating watermelon and chicken. It is not because all we do is shuck and jive, rap and have babies. It's not because all we do is steal, kill each other and slide through our education by the color of our skin, it is because the responsibility for the horror of slavery of our race has not been wholly accepted. It's like beating up on someone, feeling sorry for it, but still having to see that person on a daily basis. Eventually the guilt will eat you until the victim (in your mind) becomes the problem and you have to attack him on a daily basis. A lose, lose situation.
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 constant strip down, slap in the face of our POTUS hurts a lot of people of all colors and has the potential of causing the entire race relationship to fall a 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.
History was written in more than Black & White and Beads on a String-America’s Racially Intertwined Biographical History lauds loudly the accomplishments of all races that helped make America the great country it has become. America’s glorious multi-racial history is finally acknowledged.
With hyperlinks and videos it celebrates hundreds of people such as Hiawatha who fought for freedom of his people, Lonnie Johnson who invented the ‘Super Soaker’, Dalip Singh Saund was a member of the United States House of Representatives, Rev. Rick Warren blessed the 2008 Presidential Inauguration, G.C. Gerster was one of the first surgeons in America, Yamato Ichihashi was one of the first academics of Asian ancestry in the United States; Antonio Meucci invented the telephone, Michael Jackson entertained; Minoru Yamasaki second-generation Japanese-American architect designed the World Trade Center, and Amadeo Peter Giannini founded the of Bank of Italy which later became Bank of America.
Beads on a String-America’s Racially Intertwined Biographical History never stops celebrating our heritages from the naming of the country by Martin Waldseemuller to the elimination of overt racial discrimination, through education, entertainment and to the glorious day of racial, political and what we believed would be the social unification with Barack Obama’s Presidential election.

My Statement of Belief
"Within America's history-“I feel that we, as Americans, are all equal and held together by a common thread. #alleyesonyou Like a treasured beaded necklace of different colors, held together on a string, we are held together by our necessities and our circumstances and our humanity. Every color helps to make the necklace beautiful. We can never be a totally separate entity! Americans of all colors are so integrated that if we hurt one, we hurt all. Just like that necklace of treasured beads- leave one out and the gap is seen. Break the chain and many of us are lost.” What do you believe?
