Negro

Associated  with slavery segregation,racism and discrimination ....as a lower class citizens aka or second class citizen the name Negro for 'black' Spanish and Portuguese.Niger in Latin and Negros in Greek It has raffled feathers....and led to numerous assaults....I was insulted and assaulted.I hit back..it happened this year in India as but I forgave him for calling me negro,Kale means black here..it has taken another dimension..this is not the way you better say it not keep it to yourself!..Its an insult to my dignity a thorn to my flesh evoking memories of those who fought for our skin color to find a place in society we are rising and the ground beneath their feet has shifted our past sorrows will come to fruition thanks to all those who supported and those who still respect and supported us...why is human heart deceitful?...where did hate come from..i am on a journey across Asia and from? Africa I trace my roots and learn from them that love us and those that hate the color of my skin..but remember the words of Martin Luther King Jr...17 minutes of the famous "I have a Dream" speech

 I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character...
let freedom ring from every hill and every molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.

And surely it rung and the sounds echoing to the ends of the earth from Washington to Wundanyi(KENYA)..from South Carolina to South Africa from Salem oregon(USA) to Salem Tamil Nadu (India)
