I quite understand that the image  was to appeal to emotions on the basis origin and most importantly diversity and not your personal views.Of course! the massage is self explanatory. However, to put things aright will involve you and I and others out there as together we belong to one family of humanity.

I agree, but this image was to appeal to emotions on the basis of origin and not my personal view; but thanks for your comment!

Oluchi! I think the definition of our humanity should not be on a continuum and using Zacharaya’s construct the minority/strange at one extreme and possibly the majority at the other extreme of the continuum. However, one can have as many bi-furcation, perhaps we want to look at ethnicity at the micro level, say for example, the Yoruba ethnic group of Nigeria and the Ashante ethnic group of Ghana. And at the macro level, say for example an European and an African. Thus, your blog post depicts that of the latter, I guess. At any rate, and at whatever level, ethnicity shouldn’t be the definitional yardstick for our common existence as humanity. There is an inherent power in our diversity that we need to tap into for the betterment of us as humanity and having the understanding that one should live for the good of the others irrespective of their colours, religious affiliations, geographical locations, ethnic groups, social classes and what have you. As such, let us all explore and unlock the bounty goodness and riches that are locked to the normality or the balancing mechanisms that is forever invariant to our ethnic diversity. Let us all love and relate with one another not because of our colours, not because of our religions, not because of our ethnic groups, not because of our social classes but of our humanity.
