First of all, please understand this is not a "hate question", so please do not be angered or something about it. I'm a humanist who believes that we are a single species and the valour of each individual is measured by character rather than anything else.
How do you react to the following statements:
"I'm black and I'm proud of it, my black skin is beautiful and I love my afro hair."
"I'm gay and I'm proud of being gay, I could never live happily if I had to be straight."
And now, how do you react to the same statements, changing some words:
"I'm white and I'm proud of it, my white skin is beautiful and I love my blond hair."
"I'm straight and I'm proud of being straight, I could never live happily if I had to be gay."
Chances are that the first sentences could only have applauses and positive reactions, but the latter probably would have to hear screams of "you homophobic nazi!" and negative reactions.
Why can't we all live together in peace, considering the differences we all have a treasure of humanity, respecting each other?
Why can't we break the vicious circle of hate once for all and accept everybody as who they are?
Why are there so many double standards based on hate?
Why are so many people (who claim to be promoting egalitarianism) having similar attitudes of hate and segregration (they claim to fight against) towards specific groups of people (e. g., "straight white men")?
As said Paul McCartney in his song: "Ebony and ivory live together in perfect harmony, Side by side on my piano keyboard, oh lord, **** Why Don't We? **** "

We're caught up in the past, caught up in pretending (for the sake of political correctness) that whites are the only group who have ever abused or enslaved another group. Slavery continues to this day in certain parts of the world. We could do something about that if we focused our attention there.1
