“Despite notions to the contrary, there is only one human race. Our single race is independent of geographic origin, ethnicity, culture, color of skin or shape of eyes – we all share a single phenotype, the same or similar observable anatomical features and behavior."

“Science highlights these similarities in our embryonic development, physiology…biochemistry…and more recently, genomics (our genetic makeup). As a molecular biologist, this last one is indeed the most important to me – data show that the DNA of any two human beings is 99.9% identical, and we all share the same set of genes, scientifically validating the existence of a single biological human race and one origin for all human beings. In short, we are all brothers and sisters.”

- Michael Hadjiargyrou

Prejudice is the silent sin; it's the one sin about the color of someone's flesh – not the content of their character.
Racism isn't about skin color; it's about a heart condition.
God has 2 categories for people: lost & saved.
All people are hopeless sinners, regardless of ethnicity, class or religion.
We are prone to prejudice; it's our world, and our world thrives on dividing us.
