Post Re: If Arinze became Pope, would there be problems of racism?

Unfortunately in this world we tend to look on the surface only. Very Sad but true. I have heard for example Colin Powell did a good job---for a black guy, how horrible is that? My husband is a college grad, (I'm not) but because he has an accent and is Hispanic they assume that he is not too bright and direct questions to me. (Someone even asked him if he does some construction, talk about stereotypes) On the surface many people will be accepting but I can truly see people seeing only the fact that he is black. The media is just as bad, I could just hear it now "As the first Black Pope how do you think he will..................Someday I hope we learn we are all God's children
