I found this video On Youtube and It is something that made me realize something. Why are we labeling our selves when we humans are all the same species. I grew up with a bit of an identity crisis because I am biracial and I was confused on which side of my should I identify with. This video will open our eyes about one thing. We should only identify as Human. Not as Black,Asian,White, Latin,Middle Eastern Multiracial,Biracial or any ethnicity or nationality given to us by society. These labels divides us as people.

We should all identify as human because that is truly what we are. I can also see why labels might be needed in certain situations, though. It's helpful when giving a description of someone, but other than that, I don't think there's a need for them in day to day conversation.

I think it's high time, we shed our skin colors and look within our hearts. It's the mind that feeds on such divisive tendencies and makes us less humans than what we are. We are great by ourselves and that needs a heart to recognise.

Racism is another problem in our world today. Rather helping each other to build a better place that thought is just a mere dream because the truth we are separate from each other with the different view of other races. It's like we are only seen in our races and that's it. That is really too sad to think about it.

Race don't even exists, It is just a fictional perception that got taken seriously. Dogs have different breeds yet they share the same scientific name. Humans are the same, We are all humans.

We are all human - we are all the same in that sense. But there are things that make us all different too - and that's not a bad thing - we're just all different. The thing is not everyone respects these differences, that's where it gets divided. Our kids are biracial - but we try to expose them to all sides to their backgrounds - we think they can identify with their different cultural backgrounds and not feel they have to pick any particular side. We emphasize it's what's inside that matters more - being good people should be the heart of the matter.
