Each of us belongs to a colour, and feels safe and secure when we see us among our colour with a big circle of same-coloured people around us that makes a big circle with strict boundaries. I’m not talking only about skin colour, but anything that makes a group of people different from other groups. Religion, culture, customs, physical features, and geographical territories. We may sometimes be uncomfortable when we see small dots of other colours penetrated in our large circle. It seems like a hole in our community and sometimes we think our safety and comfort is at risk.
It may appear to be a simple subject, but if we think more critically, this simple thinking of people of like-cloured as friends and others as enemies caused many conflicts and wars from the very beginning of human history. We must stop it and send the fear of other colours to be part of our past.
Fighting is enough. Let’s live together and allow our colours merge to create a more divers palette that makes painting a more beautiful world easier.
