Humanity


As human beings, we want to be viewed that way. We want people to get us. We would like them to understand our thoughts, feelings, desires, hopes- our humor, our talents and concerns. Naturally, to assert our humanity we represent ourselves to the world as unique individuals. But can we be wholly human without being able to fully identify and assert ourselves collectively as well?
Is part of our complete humanity linked to being a people?

such a good quote...

I don't think we have to be a racially specific "people"...

except by the dictates of a racist history...

Yeah I think we should only be a people to the extent it ties us to a specific culture tradition and worldview.
