Desegregate

Remember we are all VERY similar at the genetic level. We share 99.9% of our DNA with every other person on the planet. When we mix with others we soon come to see how similar we are, whereas when we remain separate - when we segregate - we can find ourselves focussing on the surface differences.

When we interact with others in an open-minded way we notice two things:

Firstly, that in matters of desires, fears, dreams and life goals we are soooo similar:

Secondly, that those superficial differences can be wonderful, empowering, exciting – think exotic flavours, sounds, fashions, ideas that can spice up our lives.

When we mix with others, coming to understand ‘them’ can lead to a deeper understanding of ourselves. At the same time, we can be enriched by fresh ways to enjoy food, music, leisure. Life.

So why do so many people want to segregate themselves from ‘others’?

We are designed to be wary of difference – it’s a sort of evolutionary defence. In times past, strangers often WERE dangerous. Now we live in a more connected, multi ethnic, multi-cultural, multi everything world in which, remember, 99.9% of the inhabitants are much like us. They want to be treated nicely and with respect. Just like us.

Remember the “old saying”

“Treat others the way you want to be treated”

Or in the words of the iKi Rulz song

“Treat each other nice today – you will earn respect that way”

Desegregate for a safer, fairer funner world.

Vive la difference.

Kind regards

Kim.
