Do you realize that races are overrated,
since God is no respecter of persons?
Colored perceptions of hatred and bigotry
may ultimately destroy our existence.

Who needs people that:
•  Lack brotherly love and respect for others
•  Lust for power, wealth and domination
•  Lack vision and purpose
•  Lack maturity and wisdom
•  Have attitudes of superiority
•  Are poor in spirit
•  Lack discipline and self-control

Colored attitudes, regarding skin tones and hues,
pale in contrast to uncontrolled emotions.
Without responsibility and accountability,
people get themselves in trouble rather quickly.

Who really wants or needs:
•  Red’s lustful, passion for someone other than your spouse?
•  or Green’s destructional envy of others’ wealth or possessions?
•  or Yellow’s fear, smelling of urine from peeing ourselves?
•  or White’s collection of powdered deaths?
•  or Blue’s inner sadness or coldness towards others?
•  or Brown’s poverty, shame and overall uncleanness?
•  or Orange steadfastness for a Godless life?
•  or Purple’s smugness from a self-conceived ideal of royalty?
•  or Black’s foreboding sicknesses and death?

Our human collective needs to find real commonality,
within this brotherhood of man, as planetary stewards.
Under girded with a genuineness of concern and love,
true understanding can lead to harmonious relationships.
We all have the ability to commune with God’s Spirit;
however, we each must have a desire to do so.
Utopia may be unattainable, unlike… unity of community.
And yes, I forgive you, for thinking I might be racist.
