Fear. Fear exists and many utilise fear to get us to act a certain way. But fear does not have to be there. Fear rapidly disappears when we get to know some people. I use for example the story of a man named John. Since he was a child he was taught to hate black people. He grew up in a family where he was taught to fear the other. And as he grew into a man, he continued to hate black people. Nothing seemed to change his mind, until his wife Beth developed leukaemia and needed a bone marrow transfusion. His wife had a rare blood type and the only donor was found to be a black man who lived in a near by town who painfully voluntarily donated his bone marrow. This shook John's world. Would he have done the same? Probably not. But this man, who John feared and hated, had saved his wife's life. John came to realise that he had been wrong about black people. They were not all bad. Just like white people some were very good like his wife's marrow donor. Some might be bad. But most were in between- trying their best, making some mistakes, and just living their day to day lives. In short John realised that we are all the same.
