    Human Variation (race) & Group Privilege (ist/ism)


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     UclaXi says racial identity has its limits, so he prefers the universal identity where people are defined more than just their skin color. "The message I would want the world to know about being black is that humans are shades of brown. Race is illusory," he says.
    - Anika3, CNN iReport producer

    If "Human Variation", is a more accurate descriptor of #TeamHumanity, than "race", & #GroupPrivilege, is a more Objective Observation, than ist/ism, then I, invite you to Contemplate this: Am I black/minority? Or Am I, a member of an illusory group, that's perceived to be in the minority/black?

    If utilizing #SeparationLanguage, is the vehicle, we can use, to take us to that place of Respect, Inclusion, Connection, Equality & Acceptance, count me in! If it's like a dog, chasing its tail, I suggest we create a different outcome, by developing a different Question/Paradigm! Feel me, #TeamHumanity?
