Race & Godsign™

Hello All
Happy Friday

“Let us discard all this quibbling about this man and the other man—this race and that race and the other race being inferior… Let us discard all these things, and unite as one people throughout this land, until we shall once more stand up declaring that all men are created equal.”  ― Abraham Lincoln

I have to use the word ‘race’ in a sentence for you to know if I am talking about the Indianapolis 500 race or the Native American race that lived in Indiana – a state named after Indians.

Race is a word that is discussed quite a bit in the Godsign seminars because it is so powerfully used in a wide variety of ways. 

Ask yourself if you use the world humanityhumankind or human race when you are discussing humans in a big context?

Humankind brings references to kindness in humans and humanity brings references to human unity. Do you like to race around? Do you feel like you spend too time racing as fast as you can in your life? 

Human race brings references of ‘racing’ around. As society started using the term ‘human race’ much more often than the words humanity or humankind, we all started racing around a great deal more and feeling unity and kindness a bit less.  . . . We now go so far as to say our society is a ‘rat race’. Whom does that help? None of us are rats and few of us wish to race around with them.

A way to correct some of all the ‘racing’ around in your own life is to use the words humanity and humankind . . . you will find yourself racing around less and less.

Horse and car ‘races’ do not cause millions of people to protest world wide. But abuse, terror, discrimination and systemic biases built into social institution against a certain race does. That is as it should be. 


Godsign Institute is having a Spiritual Race Relations Dialogue

Racism, a bias against a person solely because of their race, has been around since the beginnings of humankind.

Anthropological evidence shows that there were social and at times very violent divisions between the earliest humans. One of the first examples is Homo Sapiens fighting Neanderthals  – one of the first and earliest ‘us vs them’.

Racism is at the heart of the destruction and genocide against of the indigenous peoples in North America. It is at the heart of the business and institution of slavery throughout the world. It was the sick and evil excuse used for the murdering of more than 6,000,000 Jewish people in Germany. It created the caste system in India and the institution of Apartheid in Africa. Those are just a few examples in modern history of the abhorrent devastation caused by racism.

Can anybody name me anything good that comes from racism?

Money and power for the select few, yes, along with hatred, death, pain, suffering, destruction for the rest of us.

Why do we allow it to still be tolerated?

“I have a dream that my 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.”
 Martin Luther King, Jr.

Do you wish to help humanity become more united? Do you want to improve race relations in the world? Do you wish to help push racism into the trash heap of history where it actually belongs?

Ten Simple Things You Can Do to Improve Race Relations
©by Charles A. Gallagher 

1. Talk to your friends and family. Especially if someone is overtly racist or uses stereotypes, politely and without judgment, ask them questions and share your thoughts about why they have such animosity towards a whole group of people.

2. Avoid Stereotypical Language – Be mindful of words like “all” or “always”. Do you really believe that all people in that group actually share the same behaviors and attitudes.

3. Racism is NOT funny. Don’t tolerate racist jokes. If you don’t speak up, you’re condoning their beliefs and behavior. Inaction is a form of action.

4. Be Introspective. How can we live our lives so that social or peer pressure do not push us toward racist, prejudiced, or bigoted beliefs or actions? If you find yourself being prejudiced, ask yourself why you acted or behaved that way. If you are a bystander and did nothing, ask yourself why. Be willing to change how you think about groups different from your own.

5. Be a Good Citizen – Vote in every election. Take time to find out candidates’ positions on policies that have implications for race relations.

6. Be a Critical Reader, Viewer, and Listener – When you watch TV and movies, while you read books, magazines, internet sites, or listen to music, be critical. What stereotypical images or messages are you getting about ethnic and racial groups and/or gender? 

7. Learn Your Family’s and Community’s History. How has race influenced your family? Your elders are resources. Talk to them about events in the past and the present.

8. Teach Through Example. Be a positive role model to your friends and all the younger people in your life. You have something to offer older generations, too — oftentimes children and grandchildren can influence the thinking of their parents and grandparents.

9. Step Out of Your Comfort Zone. Involve yourself in activities that place you in an environment where you are exposed to people of different racial and ethnic backgrounds. Who do you hang out with? Is it time to reach out and make new friends?

10. Know Thyself. Consider the following questions: • Do you live in a community that is racially homogeneous? • Outside of work or school, is your life composed of people who look like you? • Are you best friends all the same race? • In what ways is your community segregated? • How have your upbringing and environment influenced your racial attitude? • How might being in the minority shape a person’s point of view or self-esteem? • Have your ideas of race ever changed? What happened to change them?

America is a melting pot of all the cultures in the world and I can make a very good case that that is one of our greatest strengths. 

When do we start to live the Golden Rule in the UNITED States of America? So many Americans brag at how we are this great Christian nation – and yet so few who call themselves good Christians actually lead their lives that way. When do we truly ‘do unto others as we want others to do unto us? When do we all regularly love our neighbors as God love us?

Why not now?

One Tribe
by Black Eyed Peas


One Tri,
One Tri,
One tribe, one time, one planet, one race
Its all one blood, don’t care about your face
The color of your eye
Or the tone of your skin
Don’t care where you are
Don’t care where you been
‘Cause where we gonna go
Is where we wanna be
The place where the little language is unity
And the continent is called Pangaea
And the main ideas are connected like a sphere
No propaganda, they tried to upper hand us
‘Cause man I’m loving this peace
Man, man, I’m loving this peace
Man, man, I’m loving this peace
I don’t need no leader
That’s gonna force feed a
Concept that make me think I need to
Fear my brother and fear my sister
And shoot my neighbor
With my big missile
If I had an enemy to (enemy)
If I had an enemy to (enemy)
If I had an enemy
Then my enemy is gonna try to come and kill me
‘Cause I’m his enemy
There’s one tribe y’all

One tribe y’all
One tribe y’all
One tribe y’all
We are one people
Let’s catch amnesia, forget about all that evil
Forget about all that evil, that evil that they feed ya
Let’s catch amnesia, forget about all that evil
That evil that they feed ya
Remember that we’re one people
We are one people
One, one (one people)
One, one (one people)
One, one (one people)

One tribe, one tribe
One tribe, one time, one planet, one (race)
Race, one love, one people, one (and)
Too many things that’s causing one (to)
Forget about the main cause
Connecting, uniting
But the evil is seen and alive in us
So our weapons are colliding
And our peace is sinking like Poseidon
But, we know that the one (one)
The evil one is threatened by the sum (sum)
So he’ll come and try and separate the sum
But he dumb, he didn’t know we had a way to overcome
Rejuvenated by the beating of the drum
Come together by the cycle of the hum
Freedom when all become one (one)

One love, one blood, one people
One heart, one beat, we equal
Connected like the internet
United that’s how we do
Lets break walls, so we see through
Let love and peace lead you
We could overcome the complication cause we need to
Help each other, make these changes
Brother, sister, rearrange this
The way I’m thinking that we can change this bad condition
Wait, use you mind and not your greed
Let’s connect and then proceed
This is something I believe
We are one, we’re all just people

Lets, lets catch amnesia
Lord help me out
Trying to figure out what its all about (what its all about)
‘Cause we’re one in the same (one in the same)
Same joy, same pain
And I hope that you’re there when I need ya
‘Cause maybe we need amnesia
And I don’t wanna sound like a preacher
But we need to be one

One world, one love, one passion
One tribe, one understanding
‘Cause you and me can become one.

One Love 
Bob Marley

One love, one heart
Let’s get together and feel all right
Hear the children crying (One love)
Hear the children crying (One heart)
Sayin’, “Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Sayin’, “Let’s get together and feel all right
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

Let them all pass all their dirty remarks (one love)
There is one question I’d really love to ask (one heart)
Is there a place for the hopeless sinner
Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own?
Believe me

One love, one heart
Let’s get together and feel all right
As it was in the beginning (one love)
So shall it be in the end (one heart)
Alright, give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Let’s get together and feel all right
One more thing

Let’s get together to fight this Holy Armageddon (one love)
So when the Man comes there will be no, no doom (one song)
Have pity on those whose chances grow thinner
There ain’t no hiding place from the Father of Creation

Sayin’, one love, one heart
Let’s get together and feel all right
I’m pleading to mankind (one love)
Oh, Lord (one heart) whoa

Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Let’s get together and feel all right

Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Let’s get together and feel all right
