It was Michael Jackson’s iconic song, It’s Black, It’s White, that got me thinking about the Colour of One. Here are my musings:

This is something unjust, why is it that one can look good only if the person is fair? You can’t just judge people or anything by the way they look. If we start looking beyond the way people look, the world will seem a far saner place. It will be known as the colour of One – and that will be the colour of equality.

Black, white, tall, short, thin, fat – all of us are humans – so why do we need to separate ourselves and fight? Between all humans, this war might continue. But we should pause and ask ourselves this question: Who are we fooling? The world doesn’t care what colour we are, or how fair we are. The question is, Do you care? And if you do, is it worth it?
