‘a recipe for a get along scene’ melting p*t - blue mink
if only it could come true. this song was released in 1969 and it was covered and released in nz in 1988 when i was a young girl growing up, in a very multi cultural society, my best friends were maori and pacific islanders, my classmates were indian, vietnamese, somalian, south african, dutch, my neighbour’s were chinese we hosted japanese exchange students and we were taught to embrace these cultures and learn from them and share our culture back and my life is richer for being around so many vibrant people. i didn’t really understand the thoughts of racism and i still don’t fully but i am trying to educate myself and do and say the right thing. we have come so far yet we still have so far to go. i am listening and learning and talking and yes racism is a global issue not just an american issue. there’s a lot of information out there and it’s time for all of us to be held accountable. look inside and see if you are comfortable with where you sit and if not find the information to do better and be better.
