    1. Dickens … just one of a few WordMasters i loved to read as a kid and still love …
      I have to say how sad that the new india’s justice is status quo … it is a reminder of a time when Blacks or Negroes were hung&lynched for simply being black an unknown unwanted element in society and though we are in the 21st Century …I hope things get better, but i always wonder when will people be able to judge a person by their character&actions. I know not all black folks are thugs and not all white people are white supremacists. I am not a Hindu or a Muslim,yet, i have come into contact with both and judged them not by their skin colour,money,looks or religion but character actions and words. Yes, We all have biases that need to be resolved or to overcome because racism is a learned behavior, being sheltered is a problem, the unknown is best if it is given light and sometimes the result are new friendships . I thank you for posting those words ….
