Different but Equal

Well it's been all over the news, in TV, broadsheets and in the world wide web...reelectionist Barrack Obama once again won the American election 2012. 
Does it has something to do with me?, with us? will it cause our country any good at all?
I actually don't know, I mean I know nothing about politics or I don't know how Obama did on his entire term or what so ever,
 all I know is, it is great to see a man who finds a way to break through racism and discrimination.
 For me Obama somehow symbolizes equality I mean for him being the America's first black president and his support on same sex marriage he sure is an icon of parity which give me an Idea of this post

It's just sad that up until now discrimination was somehow still exist.
Discrimination in racial diversity, in color, and disability.


God made us all different in all aspect, different in sexuality, language, race, features, color, belief religon and a whole lot more. 
But in my own point of view we may be created differently but god made us equally. 
I doesn't matter if you are black or white, Straight or gay, or even if you are born normal or with some sort of disability,
we are all human...
 human who feels, laugh, cry, we are people who has equal rights, we are all deserving for respect and most of all we need and are all capable of love..
And with this if we turn down all inequality
peace and unity will never be far at reach.

I also feels like sharing this inspiring story I found online
I dont know if its true or what, but this gave me goosebumps and makes a lot of sense
have fun reading.

This happened on TAM airlines.

A 50-something year old white woman arrived at her seat and saw that the passenger next to her was a black man. Visibly furious, she called the air hostess.

"Whats the problem, ma?" the hostess asked her
"Cant you see?" the lady said - "I was given a seat next to a black man. I cant seat here next to him. You have to change my seat"

- "Please, calm down, ma" - said the hostess
"Unfortunately, all the seats are occupied, but I`m still going to check if we have any."
The hostess left and returned some minutes later.
"Madam, as I told you, there isn`t any empty seat in this class- economy class.
But I spoke to the captain and he confirmed that there isn`t any empty seats in the economy class. We only have seats in the first class."
And before the woman said anything, the hostess continued
"Look, it is unusual for our company to allow a passenger from the economy class change to the first class.
However, given the circumstances, the commandant thinks that it would be a scandal to make a passenger travel sat next to an unpleasant person."

And turning to the black man, the hostess said:

"Which means, Sir, if you would be so nice to pack your handbag, we have reserved you a seat in the first class..."
And all the passengers nearby, who were shocked to see the scene started applauding, some standing on their feet."

  5. There was rejoicing in this household with the reelection of President Obama and with the passage of marriage equality bills in some states. I agree that we need to treat each other equally with respect and dignity. All humans deserve that regardless of age, race, gender or religion or lack of religion. Hoping that the next four years will bring good things for humankind.

  6. Hi! Im Fran, a spanish male fashion blogger. Maybe you like my style and want to follow me

  7. I see that Fran also commented here. Hi Fran! I know you have the ability to put together a trendy set of clothing. But can you put together decent words to construct a decent comment? Can't you be a little subtle and more discreet? It shows how much of an attention-monger. But then I'm an epal too. So, I guess that makes us equal? Only I'm a blogger without the fringe.

    Anyway, back to you Mecoy....

    The story of his life is inspiring. Even his slogan "Change". But nothing has changed that much. He hasn't set definite rules to regulate the market that's why we're pretty much swimming in a pool of feces, especially us here in Europe. Pero wag na rin natin basagin ang trip mo.

    Everyday we face so much discrimination here in Italy. Prejudice is really the worst. Sometimes we don't get promotions in our jobs because they have this idea that foreigners are incapable of managing a store, a restaurant or an agency because we lack culture and have poor Italian language. We really have to be tenacious and assertive if we want to breakthrough.

    I really like the story in the end.

  18. okay lang si obama pero sya yung dahilan bakit mawawala yung BPO company sa pinas. gusto nya kasi americans ang makinabang sa trabaho ng mga american multinational companies. republican and democrats lang yang nasa US. si obama democrats. liberal yung mga policies nya kaya he supported what republican dont want like conservative views in same sex marriage abortion and other complicated things.

    gusto ko yung na share mo. buti nga sa kanya. kala kun sino eh economy lang pala sya naka book.

  22. Kung totoo man yang story, belat na lang dun sa babaeng racist! Yan ang hirap kasi maraming tao na sa panlabas na anyo tumitingin. Nagiging judgemental kaagad e di namn nila kilala ang pagkatao.

  23. well said Mecoy! you are right, descrimination still exist. i had experienced it myself. but i dont focus on it, i focus on the good things, which luckily is far more than the bad ones. good wisdom!
