Our Cross to Bear

I never understood how a person can judge another based on the color of her skin, to devalue her, to think she is beneath the worth of another human being.  How can anyone think skin color makes up a person’s essence? Yet they have no problem removing her clothing and devouring her like an animal. Under paid, under appreciated, judged, looked down on, blamed, ignored, That is her cross to bear.

I never understood how a woman can hate another due to her looks.  How can someone make another’s life so difficult, exerting control, insults, gossip, hate, just because she perceives the other to be prettier than her. Woman in higher positions making life extremely difficult over those beneath her, taking away her rights, her joy, her laughter, all in the name of jealousy and insecurity.  That is her cross to bear.

I never understood how a man could put a woman in a position as a symbol of sex and beauty, but deny the brains between her ears, to hire someone for her looks and not her worth or value in the position being given.  To completely ignore someone more competent, educated and capable just because she doesn’t measure up to the idea of what they think is beautiful to look at.  That is her cross to bear.

Our society teaches young girls that skinny is normal and a normal figure is plus size, giving the idea that any weight is unhealthy or fat or looked down upon.  Yet study after study shows that men prefer their women with meat on their bones and curves in the right places, but the media continues to torture younger girls with what is beautiful and accepted, flaws not allowed.  That is her cross to bear.

How can a movement rise up so quickly seeking not equality but to spread a message of hate, bashing men for being men, not including those who are pigs and think they are God’s gift to women, but real men, all men lumped into a category and hated, bashed, blamed and judged, just for being a man.  That is his cross to bear.

Society is changing and I’m not sure I like the direction in which it is going.  The hypocrisy is real.  The idea’s are flawed, most on a pendulum that swings in either direction but not looking for that middle ground. No coming together and applauding those who seek such equality on that middle ground that allows equal pay for equal duty, respect being paid to those based on their worth, their character, and their ideas. Why do we swing from one side or the other and not look for fairness and equal ground without swinging to either extreme?  Why do we hold on to such biases and prejudice and allow those stings and crosses to push us to those extremes rather than holding true to your character and setting an example by hold onto that middle ground, knowing that the fight should remain there and not budge from it.

When you bash men and call them dirty pigs, you bash all men, lumping them into the same stereo type that you seek to not to be judged by. When you blame the white person for white privilege, you put all white people into a category as if they all feel that way. Yes, there is privilege, there always has been and it’s not all based on color, or looks, but rather money, and power, the root of all evil, corrupting the ideas and equality of everyone.  The real reason of the divide.  Distract and conquer, keep them dumb and fighting against each other over half truths and lies.  Plant ideas of discord, sexism, racism, but ignore the real issue, money and power corrupts.

If you take two white men who committed the same crime, one rich one poor, the poor will have the same or similar outcome as a man of color who committed the same.  But that is not put out there and seen, it is only compared based on color to keep the minds busy with hate and judgement.  Yes, men of color do get treated unfairly, but I guarantee you, if he had money, money talks and he would have the same ability to pay his way out of a situation that the white man could, if he has the money, knowing the right people, the ability to manipulate and rub the right shoulders. Money corrupts. The real root of the problem.

Keep them dumb, keep them fighting against themselves while distracting the masses from the real issue in our world.  We are owned by few.  We are all slaves to the rich and powerful. We are all experimented on and ignored and misguided by the few, the rich, and the powerful. That is OUR cross to bear.

We must come together as a whole, a unified group, where there is neither color nor sex, beauty, nor ugliness, but a group of strong who hold the same values and minds, based on their character alone. We must hold up that cross and create this peace together rather than fight against each other. We must hold the hand of the poor, the down trodden, the elderly, the orphan, and support each other in our endeavors as we walk down the road of life, guiding others and seeking peace with each other and THEN we can succeed and conquer. Then we can remove the hate, the stereotypes, the anger, the injustices.  We will stand up for each other in equal treatment with love and strength on our sides. We must hold the cross together and rid the bashing of groups as a whole but judge each person alone and on his or her character.

We must call out to stop the violence and to spread a message of peace and love where people will pay attention and wake up to the truths rather than incite and spread hate which waters the message and keeps the real justice from taking hold.  We must accept that we will not all share the same views and perceptions and know that it is ok to do so, but in love and a peaceful way accepting others differences knowing we each are allowed to see things differently but not bash another for doing so.  We must end the anger and reach out and help one another, guiding each other with love and acceptance of our differences, even if we disagree.  The old saying, kill them with kindness, you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar holds much truth.

Peace to all.  Reach out and carry the cross together because we all have cross to bear.
