As a race, we can no longer hold the entire Caucasian race responsible for what their parents and grandparents did to our parents and grandparents because they had nothing to do with it. Through the actions of many men and women who happened to be white, I have learned that love has no color. Only racism, prejudice, and hate recognize color. We can't change the prejudice and attitudes of other people; we can change their attitudes by not living up to their prejudice. If we, as a human race, would forgive others just one-third of how much Jesus forgives us, there would be very little prejudice, racism, jealousy, and envy. As a race, many of must get out of this poverty mentality and realize that speaking proper English, getting an education and becoming successful are not limited to one race but open to all races. Many African Americans feel like they have to be defined by their race when in actuality, we should all be defined by our individuality. We have to come to the conclusion that we are one race; before we were defined by our color, we were the human race. We must understand that the best way to prove you are a man is to simply be a man. A real man doesn't feel like he has to prove he's a man, because he already knows he's a man.
