An Interview With Myself

 

“So, Gary, how come you never mention Black History Month?”

“I don’t like anything that separates us as human beings.  Having a special month for Black History served its purpose many years ago when Black History was suppressed.  That no longer happens.  Black History is not suppressed—especially with the Internet.  Having a special month for Black History shows a double standard.”

“Double standard?”

“What if there was a White History Month?  How long would it last before it was stopped and the organizers called racist?  Every month of the year we have Human History Month.  Each month is about us and no one is excluded.”

“So you don’t feel proud when a black person does something great?”

“For an instant I do, but then I remember that the black person is only a human being.   His or her color is not important.  I should feel proud when any human being does something great. But most of the time I feel ashamed over what my fellow human beings, my people, do to each other and the planet.”

“You don’t think that blacks have suffered more than whites?”

“In other words your question is asking, ‘Have human beings suffered more than human beings?’  At some point, all human beings have suffered at the hands of other human beings. Race does not matter because it’s human beings’ cruelty to other human beings. We will never unite as long as we see ourselves as separate.”
