Why cant we just unite? Why cant we share the common things of our religion? Why wont we discuss about the poverty in this world? why cant we make this world a better place for every one? In know there are black sheep's in every religion,and i know that no religion on the earth teaches violence, Why cant we think practically rather then emotionally..?

I believe the only way we will come together is if Ture histoy is taught! In my opinion - the major tools for racism in mystifacation - if we do nothing to dymystify the masses then we have false reason to think we are different - just because of color, nationality, country, etc... If we were not able to have our true history of all the people of the world - put it on the table - talk about it and move on - then we will stay in the same situation. When someone tells me that we are all equal then I truley feel them - I feel the same way - but at the same time when someone talks about how Blacks never had a civilazition and never contributed anything to socity - I get mad because I know that not to be true. All cultures are beautiful and contributed to humanity!But to us - in the USA - the Greeks are the father of mathamatics - but pathagarose studied in Africa - Heroditus(sp) is the father of history - but history is 1000's and 1000's of years older than that. All of there most celebrated thinkers were tought in Africa. It is like a time period was set for us and everything before that was pagan and/or primative. I know the winners of the war write the history but we are smater that that! I think the whole world should have one History book and the history of each country should be written by that country. I have put myself in the shoes of others before - If I were from Britian - and I landed in the Bahamas - free from over crowding, cold, religous persecution - plaugs - etc.. I probbaly would of said God gave me this land too. All cultures have done bad things and good things and if we put it all on the table and talk about it I think we will realize we are all the same - then we can move on to unification!

Those are many good questions that we do need to address in our world. Unfortunately, there are always people who do not want peace and just want total control in the world. I would love for the world to be more equal. I depise the fact that the outgoing Home Depot CEO received a $210 million dollar severence package for doing a crappy job. I could do wonders for the poor with that type of money. With this type of greed in our world, we will never be able to close the gap between poor and super wealthy.
