The idea of a human color hierarchy is a myth

My fellow human beings, thru all their struggles and faults, have beauty within. I’m glad to be part of the human race!

Unfortunately, a cruel focus on skin-color has filled centuries with indescribable pain. Let’s focus on kindness. 21st century humanity needs a break from colorism.

Skin color is real. However the centuries old concept of a skin color hierarchy is a myth that needs to be busted.

We aren’t suspicious of dogs, cats, hamsters, horses, cattle, or chickens because of their color. It would be nice if we had the same respect for people.

It’s nonsense to define who people are by their eye color (or by their skin color). If you classify people by the color of their skin, you’ll overlook who they are within.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
