 “Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war and until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man’s skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes. And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war. And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained… now everywhere is war.

These words of  Haile Selassie written years ago still rings true today. You could say the more things change the more they remain the same. We cannot tell people what to think but if you have a job to protect then you must do so impartially  and not allow your personal prejudices to cloud your judgement. The justice system is broken and the way forward is to address the cracks in the system so that the laws apply to everyone equally. It is the system that allows a lot of the injustice because those involved know they will not be held accountable for their actions. We need to fix the justice system.

    I am afraid fixing injustices are better said than done. If it is not about race, it will be language, gender, class etc. Perhaps the creator gives us something to do, to fight, to write. It may be hard to fix it, but we can undo some to our best capability, and, in the process understand the plight of humanity.

    Mankind is jealous and insecure and will never be prepared to share and act with genuine ultruisum. Mankind will never change I think our creator put this flaw in us. Sadly the world will never be fair.

It's something we're all supposed to share," - Ami Bane, Pearls on the Road All work here is original and the copywrite of Angela Miller.
