You are not white, but a rainbow of colors. You are not black, but golden. You are not just a nationality, but a citizen of the world.

You are flawed, but you are just. You may just be conscious human, but you are also a magnificent reflection of God.

Expecting perfection is the new extreme fundamentalism. Our addiction to attacking women, having unrealistic standards, and finding anything we can to discredit them, shows our rage addiction and expecting perfection is just a new way of repackaging hating women, and it is so destructive and dangerous.

It is simplistic to seek ecological perfection at the cost of bankrupting the very tax-paying enterprises which must pay for the social advances we seek.
