I saw this picture and thought “how relevant is this”. Using an animal to express a social issue. Often times we, as humans are more sympathetic towards animals than we are to our own kind (Sad but true). Not to diminish the moral obligation in my opinion to be humane to animals, but humans are the more intelligent species, well in most cases at least; But I digress.
This photo depicts what CBE is all about. But it’s not just about color; it’s also about everyone and everything “society” calls different, (diversity) just because a person doesn’t fit into the nice little mold society has conditioned (brainwashed) us to feel a person should fit (labeled) into.
I don’t know what it will take to get people to wake up (open our mind’s eye), but it is our hope for those who’s heart and mind are poisoned by bias, hatred and prejudices towards other human beings simply because of ignorance will one day be liberated from their old worldview and ideals and realize “Sometimes it’s what we see that makes us blind”.
