The more we come to accept our inner selves as the greatest quality of beauty that we have, the greater our ability will be to accept one another as equals. And the easier it will be for everyone to find a reason to smile.

Boys will be boys?

Boys are boys - anything else is a product of their upbringing.

Irresponsible Child [Demo]



Baby I was born to be a
runner...
Baby I was born to be a
disaster...

And maybe I was meant to leave a
trail of empty lies,
Running around like an
irresponsible child.

Baby I was born to be a
runner on the wrong side of love,
Baby I was born to be a
disaster of broken hearts.
And maybe I was meant to leave her
to seek happiness out on her own,
I could only run around like an
irresponsible child.

And maybe I was meant to leave her
to seek happiness on her own,
I could only get in her way
putting up walls to break down,
And maybe I was meant to leave her
cause I could only get in her way,
Acting out just like an
irresponsible child.

Why the term 'of colour' is racist

By stating that a person is 'of colour' you are already making a racist statement by excluding or differentiating them from yourself, or people of the 'white' colour. A person "of colour" by logic is every person on earth. By tradition, perhaps, it is a recognition of non-white humans, or non European descendants, but all this does is alienate and segregate humans with words this time, instead of physical fences.
        Colour isn't always race; race isn't always culture; culture isn't always character.
        My Italianesque pale olive skin (at least the parts that get sunshine) make me a person 'of colour' just as much as the darker browns of the Maori. Using the term "of colour" does nothing but perpetuate the idea that non-white races are "different" from Europeans. Our cultures may very well be different, but then, house to house cultures and behaviours are different as well. In the end, we are all subtly different with different shades of skin colour, freckles, hair colour, etc... yet, fundamentally similar, if not the same, in our human capacity.
