(Snippets from the frontline)
Re-blending our DNA
Seretse Khama, a prince from the African country of Bechuanaland (now Botswana), fell in love with a woman in England after WW II. She was white.
Ann Durham grew up in Kansas and in the 1960s fell in love with a man in Hawaii. He was black.
Prince Harry falls in love with an American, Meghan Markle. She is half black.
The inevitable is occurring: A prince who became the first President of Botswana; a Kansas women whose son became President of the United States; and now possibly an heir who becomes Queen or King of England.
Love is the answer as we re-blend our DNA and unshackle false separations perpetuated solely by the color of one’s skin.
Face it. What is the fastest growing population in the United States? The mixed race.
DNA allows us to realize how closely we are related. Supremacists in Charlottesville, and even warring factions in the middle east share common genetic background with their adversaries.
Honor those brave souls from Botswana, America, England, and many others (like my parents) who found courage challenging laws of segregation.
Love makes re-blending inevitable.
