Opinion

"Color" as designating people has not worked. Color divides; fragments; creates hostility; puts chips on one's shoulders; offends automatically; depersonalizes to incivility; makes one to be a professional victim, begging or demanding without productivity; paralyzes one to "poor me" ineptness; inflates with loud self-deluded arrogant Narcissism; dehumanizes to violence; makes people crazy; and enables evil leaders to manipulate weak suggestible peers to un-virtuous acting out of emotions. And "color" makes one forget that being born in America is the luckiest thing that could happen to anyone--otherwise, one would be dead or destitute in some other miserable country. Color means "unworthy content of character" and that one can do anything one feels like doing without consideration of virtue. Color makes one to be a Klu Klux Klan thinker of old: "I am better than those different and they must defer to me!" Anyone who uses color should be rejected as a KKK (kolor, kolor, kolor)--which is the same as a CCC (color, color, color)---beige, black, brown, pink, red, white, yellow--empty wavelengths signifying nothing. We must identify as HUMANS: African, Asian, Caucasian, Hispanic, Negro, and by other words which bring the personhood of transcendent human history: Life, Sacrifice, Virtue, Love, Humanity, Peace, Freedom, and Death without Fear by commitment to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Color does none of that and is just an empty wavelength. Color does the opposite. Tell those dealing with "color" to stop and deal with humanity based words instead. Color makes matters worse. "Color" is superficial and skin-deep thoughtlessness. Color always fails. It will always fail because it is not fully human because it ignores the content of one's character. Instead, people should be known by the content of their character. If you really want to help everybody, stop mentioning color. Color hardens the heart and dissolves the brain.
