Our Destinies Are Tied Together

Dear Source:
Once again we are assaulted by Adelbert Bryan's racism. He would like to claim these islands for the African Americans, but what about the Caribe Indians who were dispossessed by the Spaniards? Man has been migrating over this world for over 10,000 years if you watch the History channel. We must learn to share God's earth.
Perhaps Mr. Bryan should meditate on the words of Dr. Martin Luther King: "Our cultural patterns are an amalgam of black and white (and brown). Our destinies are tied together. None of us can make it alone." We are all brothers and sisters sharing the same home–Mother earth–let us try to get along and stop being such a dysfunctional family.
