The Ultimate Fairytale : A short history of Greece, Rome, Israel, England, France, and Germany.

I notice skin colour: I do not believe I am unique in this.

Then, I conjecture that people with a different skin colour to mine have a different experience of colour itself; so that in the subtler shades, our experiences are unique.

Thus, skin colour. What of race? Let us look at recent events.

We have seen light skinned people standing and marching with dark skinned people, saying that dark skinned people are important.

The assumption behind this, naturally, is that there are light skinned people, and possibly dark skinned people, who believe the contrary.

And this assumption is no doubt true. But we aught to know that stating something to others is not a way to change their minds.

In South Africa, it must be stated, there were light skinned people both for and against dark skinned people having equal rights.

The records show that those that believed in equality did well to keep out of the fray, but remain willing to assist. For, those that put themselves in the lime-light became bitter when the wounded animal was restored, and looked not back; except at its former enemies.
