We will all have our time of knowledge when we die but I have noticed when I used to take care of the elderly that they are the ones we should be listening to and learning from. So many years of trials has made them just a little wiser.
I was about 20 when I brought my first born son to my grandmother. My son is biracial and she held him tight and kissed him, my other family members and friends were not as welcoming to my interracial relationships views nor the first “black” child into our circle.
But grandmother just looked at me and out of no where said “You know I see a world where we are all one color a mixture of all races and all cultures you are just the beginning of that perfect world.
The US is a melting pot, there are no pure races, but this child has a pure soul” I was told that Grandma “knew things” but whether she had a psychic connection she never said.
I wonder if in their wisdom they can see things a little clearer being so close to the time they will see God and all his answers. Makes you want to listen a little closer to the elderly rambling of grandpa now doesn’t it? Psychic abilities can be learned, and Time is the best teacher.
Many People have tried to promote the pure race theory and failed, not because of an opposition, but because the thought never worked.
Things weren’t heaven when there were separations between races and oceans between cultures. Many problems arose from the mixing of races at first but only because of those that fought change.
No look around, dark people trying to be light while whites try to be tan…. But biracial people have a year long tan and with no price of skin cancer. Mixing lessened the chance of racial inbreeding disease like German being weak gallbladder, Indian heart disease, Or Blacks prone to stroke… every race has their own.
All interracial relationships produces such beautiful children: Indian, black, white, Hispanic, Arabic, Asian, and Native, And yes America is a good example where we mix German, Polish, Irish, English Whites with Native Indian, African, Hispanic, Greek, Italian, Asian and Middle Eastern.
I will state that inter racial dating is difficult and cultural differences can also add to the problems. Infatuation with ones differences is a great way to start a relationship but you have to be a strong and understanding person to deal with this strange new world you find yourself connected with.
Communication is a must. I mean really be able to talk with each other on what you expect and want out of life, out of raising children and even the way you will grow together. One cultures thoughts on old age even is different then another. Managing cultural differences may be the thing that gets in the way the most in a marriage.
Religion is also an obstacle so make sure that is talked about example: “what religion with our children be?” really look at the (-,+) to each.
I can never tell someone that is the cross for you. But I see those beautiful bright eyed children that have the best of both worlds and I can not help but hear my Grandmothers prediction come to life, one wondrous, child at a time. Be blessed.
