I got talking to a black Sista a few nights ago. It was good – one of those meaningful occasions when you connect with somebody briefly on the road of life and then walk on a little enlightened.

In this case it brought some clarity to the whole subject of racism. It seems that whatever the history, the backlash, the complexities, the bigotry, the political correctness, the matter of cultural differences, the allowance for cultural conditioning etc, etc, it all comes down to one word: Respect. I suppose that’s because it’s the one universal right that has nothing to do with anything other than being human.
