Once the business of food and home has been solved, the next thing humans strive for are reasons to feel superior to others, and resources with which to demonstrate their superiority. ~Carlos Ruiz Zafón
One, two, I am better than you.
Three, four, get the hell out my door.
Five, six, you belong with the shits.
Genetically, human beings are 99.99% identical. Yet, we focus on the 0.01% genetic difference to either value or devalue a human being.
The measure of a person is in their soul not in their genetically constructed shell. But we can’t easily judge a soul walking across the street so make assumptions based on their exterior. A turban? Must be a terrorist. High melanin content? Throw the criminal in jail.
The true criminal is one who judges another. And the terrorist is anyone who discriminates based on inconsequential exterior characteristics.
