STEREOTYPES, TOLEARANCE & REALITY
(By Carl A. Patton, 11 January 2010)
Peace be unto you. There are so many diverse and varied people that walk and crawl upon the land called earth. However there will always be those in every group that see not the Godly sentiment of “no respecter of persons.” Therefore who are dismayed and surprised at statements called out about race? Black, White, Brown, Red and Yellow have often bowed to mere moments of reality as they reveal what the world has rendered to be custom, and tradition.
Will They Eat Cake Or Corn Bread?
The world is consumed with very little
pity and benevolence for those that have
been used as cannon fodder and tyrannized
for labor, diamonds, gold and land.
All of humankind thus have a culture a
ethnic lineage and past. A diverse group
believe that certain things like spirituals
brought on blues and then jazz.
Tolerance to some took on a new birth as
peace and good-will to all became in vogue.
Just who could bring all of human-kind
together to love and respect each other?
Meanwhile realities cast their lot. Some lived
with a legacy of servitude and race took
hold. The campaign to be superior still lingered
in the hearts and minds of a myriad of people.
Inferiority as a complex also loomed ahead
of countless human souls that had been historically
down-trodden. So were the realities of Sam-Bo
and those that stepped and fetched the Ham-Bone.
However all did not relish and savor hog
guts, pig feet, pig ears, pig tails, mountain oysters and
hog head cheese as delicacies for all that came
from “The Land of the Blacks.”
All these people also could not sing and dance.
Some knew rhythm but missed the beat. A
multifarious number also were black, brown,
yellow and light skin. Some also had good hair.
Good hair, bad hair, black, mulatto and brown
as some in sundry times were perceived by many outside
and inside as smart, and suited for house chores
while Black Willie and Nappy head Annie worked the field.
Peace and Paradise,
