From time immemorial humanity has suffered from the illusion that we exist as separate entities, families, nationalities, religions, races, etc. These labels have institutionalized and organized the divisions among members of the human race.
Paul Robeson travelled to Russia in the mid 1930s. There he was quoted as saying, "I felt for the first time a full human being. No color prejudice like in Mississippi, no color prejudice like in Washington."
We are all prisoners of our conditioning. Whether, it is a memory, a fear, or an inculcated belief. Humanity suffers from this illusion. The illusion of being separate.
We often forget, we are all members of the same race. The human race.
"We can make clear what peaceful coexistence means. It means living in peace and friendship with another kind of society-a fully integrated society where the people control their destinies, where poverty and illiteracy have been eliminated, and where new kinds of human beings develop in the framework of a new level of social living." Paul Robeson, Paul Robeson Speaks.
