Racism in America
Racism is not as it seems; the hatred of people based merely on race.
It is the evidence of a spiritual failing, reflecting a hostility that pre-existed any awareness of race.
To hate a person because of differences in skin tone is to hate the maker of that skin. Racism attempts to lift the spirits of the racist by lowering those of different races.
The consequences of such perversion is preventable by the adherence to the law of loving your neighbor as yourself, especially those different than you.
