Ever have one of 'those moments' when you realize the stupidity of something
you just said? Well the other day I was listening to something on the radio and
in describing a person, the speaker mentioned that the person was black.
What difference did that make? The fact that they were black, white or brown
really had absolutely nothing to do with the conversation. We do this all the
time....distinguish people with labels whether it be their size, age, height,
religion, race, gay, lesbian, straight, covered in tattoos, and the list goes on.
An important thing to remember when talking with or about somebody else is
the fact that they are human beings first and foremost. How they look,
who they are, what religion they follow, what political party they support

and their sexual orientation is really irrelevant, and
is making a rash judgement. It really shouldn't matter.
