Being Black: Red or White Wine?
As human beings, we are equal in the right to pursue happiness as conveyed in the Declaration of Independence.
An enlightened mind knows that any person with the same intelligence, opportunities and motivation will pursue the same dream of happiness ... or the same nightmare of foolishness.
Like spouses in a marriage, maybe one race is smarter than another. Who knows? Who cares? Partners in life that respect each other's inalienable rights have better lives than a master and slave, a thief and victim, or a oppressor and oppressed. If rights are based on intelligence then we should all be ruled by one person. As this is a prescription for human disaster so is any social-economic arrangement that does not promote individual rights, equality and maximum of problem-solving in the pursuit of happiness.
But this writer thinks there is one basic, physiological difference between a black and white person. This thinking is based on personal observation and reflection in conjunction with recollection of a number of psychological and physiological studies. This thinking was buttressed recently by a perception study which involved African-Americans employed in civil rights promotion and enforcement. The study involved flashing pictures of blacks and whites with a question of which invoked more insecurity. Much to the surprise of many who claim to be non-discriminatory (both black and white subjects), black pictures consistency elicited the response of inspiring insecurity.
The wrong question was asked. A better question would be, "Do you like red or white wine?" Anyone who has developed a good palette for wine knows that a red wine takes longer to discern than a white. The reward of red wine is that the enjoyment is more varietal and longer-lasting. The same is true of non-white breads and enriched white bread. The same is true with black people.
The right question for the perception study is "Which face has the longer degree of uncertainty before you feel comfortable with the facial cues?" If blacks are at a physical disadvantage, it is with people who can or will not take the time to discern the less immediate facial cues of a black person. Blacks don't have any other physical limitation, and if they did, they still have the right of equality to pursue happiness.
At the risk of belittling the point of contrast, one event has been found where integration does not work for this writer. Coffee. Integrating all aspects of one's life is not only a right life but is a better life with the exception of integrating coffee where black is beautiful. .
