What is with discrimination? Even white folks are discriminated against, in a variety of ways, oftentimes by their own country folks. If one is handicapped, or weighs more than most folks, or dresses differently, looks different, has a different shape, or lacks higher education, one is often left on the sidelines of society.

We never hear about these people being discriminated against compared to our African brothers and sisters.

We all came from the same God who made us, so why all the problems?

Everyone should be treated equally and given the same chances in life to be all they can be.

Even Jesus Christ was born in poverty, yet he became the savior for Christians.

There are many more poor people out there who, given a chance, could be the ones who can solve the many problems we now wallow in.
