Don't matter it's black, yellow or white

I was waiting at the lift with my colleagues coming down and there were 2 Nigerians and an Indian student waiting with me. We were waiting for the lift after luncheon yesterday.

And when the lift came down, I alighted the lift with the 3 students leaving my colleagues behind. They refused to alight with me. Why is that so? Is it because there were 2 Nigerians students? Is it because they are black in color?

I never asked them why and I can only predict it's the same reason either wise.

When I first met the Nigerians students, I really dislike them because of their color. They gave me a feeling of an uneasiness. And they seems to create trouble for the lecturers and the students here. Yes, I'm admitting I was a racist then.

But as I continue to interact with some of them, I found out that most of them are good in nature. They are some who are polite and their intention mainly is to get a good education.

Most of them are born again Christians and they really loved the Lord. I even took 2 of them to an Anglican church last Sunday.

I'm glad that I looked at them differently now and I'm accepting them. They are just human beings like you and me.

Most of the times, we don't see equally among the human race, be it of the color, culture and the tradition. Likewise, we need to learn and accept their thinking, lifestyles and their characteristics.

Ps. Can we accept and treat each other equally?

And I Told About Equality
An It’s True
Either You’re Wrong
Or You’re Right

But, If
You’re Thinkin’
About My Baby
It Don’t Matter If You’re
Black Or White

i agree, we shouldn't judge by the outside color. God created people equally.

Many of them in Kuching and Kuching people have nothing but bad things to say about them. Then one day, a car broke down in the middle of the road in a storm, massive jam...and guess who went out into the rain to help, all soaking wet. Some Nigerian students! Those people - not only cannot look beyond the colour of the skin, they cannot even look at themselves to see what kind of people they are.

Agreed, we shouldnt judge someone on their color. It's the good heart that counts.
