Sorry, NOT Sorry

Man (generic term, includes women) was created from the dust of the ground. HaShem (Creator of All) breathed into this dust His Spirit. We didn’t go to the local pharma dude and say,”gimme a Spirit, make it a double”.

We also didn’t say,”I’ll think my dust should be paler than most”.

As a matter of fact, I don’t recall ordering HaShem around before I donned this Earthly suit. No, that attribute came about afterwards and I regret every time I do it.

That being said, it is my belief that no man (or woman, that’s the only two genders, and that’s a fact!) … No man chose his race before getting here.

Therefore, and follow my logic here, no man is responsible for his race. Or to put it more succinctly, no man is liable for the color of his skin.

HaShem made it that way on purpose. (I know , I know, He does EVERYTHING on purpose). His purpose on this particular thing was to teach us that no one is better than another.

Our circumstances may be different but you are not better than I and I am not better than you. It is truly a level playing field.

What we do, the choices we make, the chances we take, the promises we break, the love we seek, the strong, the weak … these are what sets us apart.

So, I am sorry but I am not sorry for being white. I am sorry for a ton of other things I have done in my life but being peach colored ain’t one of them.

AND NEVER WILL BE.
