Cognitive Dissonance is Skin-Tone Deaf

It's a sad, ironic truth - the more virulently people stand against each other, the more alike they become.    
Or should I say, we become.  

Whether you see yourself as a White Saviour or see The Other as a threat to be firewalled out, it all boils down to the same thing.  Fear and anger are a curse we hold in common.

The solution isn't fear, it's understanding.  That's the gift we build together.
