Do you see what I see? Or I am simply lost in a world where things can only be seen by those who visit the world of imagination? I have oft times wondered about myself and I have always still tried to be me regardless how unconforming I was to society, but I am telling you I see something, and it don't make a lot of sense to me. I'll tell you what I see, and you tell me if I have blended my two worlds together, gone completely mad or if you see it too.
See, it was before me, I can't remember much at all but some of my older friends do and some of them tell me they don't remember much at all either so perhaps we were just children, or our innocence was something I am sure we wish we had never lost. I am not sure which came first the lady who wouldn't move from her seat on the bus or the preacher who marched with a desire for equality, but it happened, and things began to change for the better. There was the demand for equality, no one separated by race or origin. Isn't that what happened? Someone please tell me if I am wrong. I thought that was what happened!
Yet, I sit in front of my television, and I see it! I see it every day. There is race discrimination in college funds and beauty pageants and television. What's going on here? I am at a loss. I thought everything was about unity and equality how did the segregation begin take place all over again? And don't tell me it's not taking place. If television shows have begun to single out any one race, then that my friends, is segregation and help me out here but ..... isn't that why the woman wouldn't get out of her seat on the bus? Because she didn't want to be segregated? Correct me if I am wrong folks. And what about the preacher we just celebrated his life this week .....was his death in vain? Didn't he demand equality? How did everyone fall back into segregation?
It doesn't matter how they got there now but they are there and they think it's okay. Will someone please explain because I don't understand why people fought so hard to become one in a country so strong only to separate themselves willfully, Help me out. Please someone help me out here! The world is regressing, and no one seems to notice but me!
