A Poem by Einstein Noodle


The Racist


Born blind as 

        far
 
               as eye can see


You're all different.

            Just.

                       Like.

 Me.

funny how we see little kids playing together...all of them, not a care in the world and not a prejudiced bone in their bodies...then they grow up and learn it---from those who came before...we seem to have come so far since the 60's in some ways and yet not far at all...still the same old thought process...and your poem speaks to that concept...we are all different, especially those who have phobias against the others who are. I see the "born blind" more as born blind of the differences and then the eye sight and heart sight improves...in a bad way...and then we see the differences and focus too much on them...in a negative way...

God help a world where we would all be the same. Who would we be. I suppose we all have our prejudices. I don't like squash...they're small and yellow and not at all trustworthy. There is infinite wisdom in your poem, E. Very wise you be.

Excellent observations that can apply so powerfully in our era of deep divisions! I've always loved the diversity of different people, so it's hard to understand why anyone would prefer to be amongst a homogenous group!?!?! Thanks for the subtle reminder to open our hearts (((HUGS)))

Jesus said something like, the poor we always have with us.
Racists we will likely always have with us; they should neither be overemphasized nor, most certainly, joined.
Still, as long as they bring no harm to others, I believe people are free to think what they wish.
Excellent bit of work, E

Very beautiful piece my friend
It's taught not learned and from
Ones showing the wrong values
but if They learn love at home
and the parent
Shows no rasicim and help them
Understand why others act
as they do they won't be racist
I don't care for rude people of all
color and race and lot of times
They don't know love or Jesus
and know the devil's hate and racism
and they were taught to hate so
I pray for them and my boy
isn't hateful that's all racism is
I don't see color I just see a person
I look at their hearts not the color
Or race.

Blessings my friend
I was blown away by
your comment on my
New poem thank you. :)

Its funny how the apparently simplest set of words can hold the most extraordinary truth. Its also true that we learn our prejudices. We also learn how to be human and how we are all the same with experience. Only apparently some don't. This is a remarkable truth. Especially now when I find myself saying why do some look at brother/sisters and place prejudices of their own learned from others?It could be argued withing myself that I am being prejudiced by saying I do not loath much but I loath prejudice in all its forms. And I learned that from my friends not from my family.

Blindness is both the cause and solution of racism in my humble opinion. How one person of any race can hate an entire race for their skin tone is as crazy as hating people who eat spaghetti, or who have red hair. The beauty and knowledge they exclude themselves from is their own punishment. We are all born the same and that is where we see the answer to the problem. A black child, playing with a white child, would never feel the need to use the description I just did, they are truly colour blind. It is those around them that teach them about life and living, good and bad, making problems were none existed.
Would a dying racist refuse life saving treatment from someone of a race they hated? Most probably. Showing that their hatred is only truly skin deep, no matter how deep they think it runs.
