This photo from the AP press of the 50th anniversary march of Martin Luther King, Jr. is the vision of America that MLK envisioned, not this divided along racial, political, socio-economic lines that we see today. He was about unity of the races, not division of. He wanted to see a future where blacks and whites and every other race get together in mutual love and respect for each other who can mete out all the problems that face our country together. Today, however, we have too many racial fetishists who think dividing people is a great strategy when in the long run it means Humanity’s ultimate destruction. What evilness lies beneath the flesh of those who wish to divide humanity into convenient categories to control and to destroy. The future of humanity is not division, but unity. Unity to conquer our solar system and to go beyond it and find other life forms and state, “We may be a young species, but we conquered our hate, we’ve evolved beyond race.” Until then, we are still primitive animals clinging bitterly to our ideas of race and division thereof. What an impoverished idea that race vomits upon our species as a whole, the idea of there being some mythological importance to race like being black, white, Hispanic, Asian and so on. There’s nothing important about it and its high time we evolve beyond it. We are the Human Race, not black, white, brown, red, yellow or whatever else.
