Biased with Colour?

Are you biased with the colour of the skin ? Does it make a difference to you when you see a different coloured person trying to be friends with you. I per say cannot understand why there should be any difference because God created all of us equal. We have the same coloured blood and even the same blood groups. Why then should the skin colour make a difference. I live in a multi religion country where there are whites, wheatish, brown, black, coloured skin and we all live in harmony (except for the terrorist) What do you feel ?

I can honestly say that I am not biased or prejudiced or however you want to put it. I have three beautiful children who are biracial. I am white and their father is african-american. I do know some white people though who will not even speak to me because I am involved with an opposite race. But it doesn't bother me anymore. Let me tell you what my daughter told a little girl on the playground one day. She was playing and this little girl came up to her and was talking. She asked my child what color she was. My child responded by saying, "I am the same color as you". The girl said, "No your not". My child said, "Yes I am because God made all of us and in his eyes, we are all one color". The little girl thought about this for a minute and then said,"You're right, wanna go swing together?" You see, children learn from their parents actions and words. She learned from someone about the issues of race. I wish parents would teach their children that we are all one humanity, not blacks,whites,hispanics,etc.

I don't care I have friends of all "races" and I love them all. Yes it's true we are all the same and should be treated the same but that's still not the case. Just try to spread love wherever you go and maybe more people will realize that there is no reason to hate someone just because they look different.

I agree, kety, that a person should not be judged by the color of their skin. It is ignorance that makes people do this. People are people wherever you go. Some good, some bad. It doesn't matter the color of their skin.
