Critical Thinkers Celebrate The Person Not The Race Or Gender - Critical Thinking

To address the race, or gender, sex is a form of violence, a manipulation of people, a person with an agenda.

Jiddu Krishnamurti 

“When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.” 
? Jiddu Krishnamurti

"When we fail to compete with people, we believe they are lesser humans, and we are superior"
- Andy Lee Graham

To make the choice, they need our money is not equality. 

As for me, as I have travel the world, the worst thing I have ever done is make a special exception for another person. For example, when competing with a person from Africa, India, or the Ghetto of the USA, to not compete at a game of cards, a game of chess, to somehow think i am smarter, because I am richer is sad.

We can treat all people as equals, the classic form of racism is to not insult a person because of their race, to not believe they deserve equal opportunity to be insulted, hollered at, or mocked...

To give them special status, as if they are not our equal is sad, the next time you avoid insulting, or saying something, because you think of their gender, sexual preference, race, or money, try to ignore, and go right on with you compliment, or insult.

Thank you, Andy Lee Graham

Somewhere, over the rainbow, people are not starting sentences out with some words that somehow say, this gender, race, culture, country, people, tribe, rich, or poor needs special consideration, as if they don't compete well, somehow they are lessor, inferior, and need special advantages granted..
