Love has no race.
Academy Award winner Louis Gossett Jr. had the opportunity to produce and star in the first independent film in South Africa after Nelson Mandela was released from prison. The movie was called, “Inside.” During that stay, his good fortune was to be alone with Mr. Mandela for approximately fifteen minutes. The question he asked was: “The entire world was holding its breath to see what mood you’d be in when you came out of prison after twenty-seven years, and you came out with a smile. How did you manage to do that?”
Mandela’s answer was simply, “It is a much bigger picture.”
Mr. Gossett took his words to heart and Mandela’s message dramatically changed his life.
Last night during the Oscars, Robin Givens interviewed Mr. Gossett on the red carpet and asked about the “race” issue some are making. His answer was profound, he said ” We need to understand that we are One People, Once and for All.” Or as I like to say, there is only one race, the human race. The sooner we can all stop playing the color game, the sooner we can all see the “bigger picture.”
Louis Gossett Jr. has a Non Profit set up around this whole mindset, it’s called Eracism. Check it out: http://www.eracismfoundation.org/
