2014 A-Z Blogging Challenge……….18th of 26 Pet Peeves


My Pet Peeve for the Letter R
 

Hello my name is DM and I am colour blind. I’m not talking about being medically colour blind as in not being able to distinguish colours, I’m talking about refusing to allow myself to base my judgements on others because of their skin colour.
 

Racism still runs rampant in today’s world even though it is 2014. It seems every time I read the paper, watch the evening news or listen to the radio there is someone somewhere that is either calling foul because of their race or a tragedy happening because someone did not have the right skin colour. It makes me cringe when I hear people talking about how much they don’t like someone and their reasoning has nothing to do with anything in particular except for their skin colour. It’s a really big pet peeve of mine when I hear people trying to mock the way others talk by trying to imitate certain accents. As far as I am concerned, we ALL bleed red blood which makes us ALL the same.

Dear Dawn:

Visiting from the A to Z Challenge. You should visit Holistic Wayfarer's site (holisticwayfarer.com.) She did a series on race that is fascinating.

Best regards,
Elizabeth

Great reminder. Being color blind is the way to be.
