Why are we so quick to judge? To automatically throw a label on everything? Black, White, Right, Wrong, Leader, Loser…
People as a society has decided what is acceptable and unacceptable and we as individuals have let them.
     I have found that the color of flesh is insignificant.  Everyone has feelings and skin color does not play a role in that whatsoever.  Perhaps we should look deeper- to the color of one's soul
     Right or wrong? We've all heard it said "what is right for me may not be right for you" yet we still cling to society and let it decide for us.  Maybe it's easier that way… go with the majority… don't decide for yourself… after all if so many people have the same view it must be the correct one… right? WRONG!
     I've known leaders who were lost and losers who were leaders… A leader is leading you to what? Some goal or vision they have? Do you really share that goal- or is it easier to follow than forge your own way? Losers… what exactly have they lost? Who are we to decide?
     So … question everything. Feel YOUR feelings. Throw away the labels. Don't judge. Make YOUR own decisions!!
     Quite simply… LIVE!!!

I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

Amen!
I'm in school still, and people are cruel. I'm a loser. I'm too smart to be cool, I make people feel dumb, because I understand things they don't. Not my fault I want to do well in school. And no, I don't rub it in peoples faces.
I have awesome friends though who are like me, they are the nicest people I have ever met.
But yeah, rules of what you can and can't do or say, or wear, look like are stifling. I ignore them.

I'm glad you brought this up, there's too many people out there who don't get to know someone before they judge.  Thankfully, not everybody is like that!
