Colored People

It isn't Monday yet but I foresee that the next few days will busy...plus I am really excited about getting this song out there this week.

This week's musical selection is more like a long distance dedication to my dear blog friend Scrappy Mom. She had a rough week last week and I want her to know I have been thinking about her. This is a song by dc Talk about racial diversity, Colored People.

Have I ever treated someone different because they are different than I am? I am sad to say that I probably have more than I would like to admit or even realize.

Let this song be a reminder to us all that God made ALL of us and we are all precious in His eyes.

Scrappy Mom, I am sorry that you have been discriminated against. You are one special lady and I want you to know that. Hugs!

I really like that song. Toby's "Diverse City" gets into that also. Unfortunately, I can't say that I have never discriminated against people. I know how I was raised and am trying to raise my kids to think different that I did. We live in a pretty diverse community, so the we know people of MANY different backgrounds ("the word race needs to be trashed"). So far, I think we are doing a pretty good job.

The problem I have is when someone plays into a "stereotype", then I can't view them normal again.

God made us ALL equal, but until EVERYONE can see that, our world will not change.

Great Video!
