White males are receiving a lot of flack these days. Well, I happen to like white males. I think a lot them are cute, and funny, and smart, and kind. But you know what? A lot of them are shitty, too. There are a lot of shithead white males in the world. There are also a lot of shithead black males in the world too. But you know what else, there are a lot of shitty females out there as well. Not to mention, I’ve met a lot of shitty Christians and there’s plenty of shitty Muslims, too. Shitty homosexuals, and asshole heterosexuals.
We can’t continue to evaluate the quality of people’s hearts by the group with which they are labeled. People are born into certain conditions or are raised with certain beliefs beyond what they are able to rationalize. Fundamentally, though, it is what’s within our souls that reveals our worth. Are we genuine, are we kind-hearted, trustworthy and dependable? These are the qualities on which all people should be judged.
It really makes no difference what you are or with whom you identify yourself, every single one of us has the ability to be open, accepting, compassionate, successful and responsible. And every one if us has the ability to be a raging, closed minded, arrogant, hypocritical asshole. I have seen evidence of people from every race, creed, sex, orientation and culture demonstrate behaviors on both ends of the spectrum. We are all the same people, vulnerable to the same weaknesses and prejudices. However we all share the same ability to move the needle and continue to make progress on the wheel of time to drive our species towards a better, more sustainable life for us all.
