I was thinking the other day about how America has changed since it's discovery many centuries ago.
Consider that the original inhabitants of this continent were Red people. They got physically, economically, psychologically, spiritually inundated and pushed out by White people (there were Black people, but they weren't doing much of the inundating).
Obviously, some of the Red people were angry, fought back, and were sad. But they basically lost.
Now, this continent is being slowly conquered by people of other colors: Brown, Black, Yellow, InBetween, and the tides are shifting. Again. Physically, economically, psychologically, spiritually. And the White people, are experiencing many of the same emotional feelings that the Red people must have felt for centuries.
Fortunately for White people, they have a more peaceful, evolutionary world, and are able to participate in this evolution in ways that the Red people were not.
For White people, the emotional, psychological, spiritual shift is aimed at people already here: Black and Brown, people coming in from the South: Brown Latinos, but the economic shift is also being impacted by Brown and Yellow people bringing significant economic change.
This is not a BAD transition, just a transition. It is not something that can be reversed, just like the United States is never going to be totally controlled by Native Americans. But if White people think that the world is "better" because of the vast technological changes brought by avaricious Europeans steeped in an unyielding Christian religion, are we?
Maybe the culture of sustenance, clean water, air, sustainability, is actually more important, and durable than the culture of speed, objects, ownership, collection, accumulation, aggregation, and domination?
