Having just finished reading a novel by the author, Kathryn Stockett, entitled
The Help', I can't stop myself from wondering what racial prejudice is all about.
The story takes place in Jackson, Mississippi in 1962.
Black maids employed by white middle class families.
Whilst the maids are humiliated, treated like second class citizens, the employers are the most despicable human beings you would ever come across!

The moral of this story is that the black maids are utilized to raise the white children, while their own children are actually neglected.

Thank God we are now at a different mindset! Thank God that Jesus taught us EQUALITY. I don't mind if a person who is prejudiced against black people read this article. I am just hopeful I can open your eyes.

Only last Sunday 13 June 2011, my Son-In-Law lost his Father after a long illness.
We will attend his funeral on Friday.
Sad as I am to see him go, this man told me he hated black people! He also hated children!

My daughter made it known to me that she would do anything to protect her son, my grandchild, against any form of racial prejudice and I am so proud of her for doing so!

As a child, I was brought up in London, and my friends were multi coloured! My parents were not prejudiced against any colour or creed, provided they were reasonably nice people. 'Look for the good" my parents told me, and I have not been disappointed.
Thankfully, our 3 children have the same outlook.

If you have time to read the book, please do so.
It is a great read! And NO,I am no way related to the author.
But it educated me in the way the Southern Americans thought, lived,treated others without any form of guilt.









If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
