A "Bandwagon Effect" is a most common phenomenon wherein the rate of uptake of any beliefs and misbeliefs increases the more that those have already been adopted by others in the society. Shallow people will get carried away by what others do, and will always hop on the bandwagon. You mustn't get swayed by what others do or tell you to do, and mustn't jump on the bandwagon. You must stand with your own values, confidently, and without fluttering, even though you have to stand alone - because you are the Gold, and the Gold must maintain her Color, Character and Charisma that set the highest standards for others.
Choose your friends by their character and your socks by their color. Choosing your socks by their character makes no sense, and choosing your friends by their color is unthinkable.
Compartiendo una experiencia extraña de mis años de estudiante en Manchester, Inglaterra, durante la década de 1970. Acababa de llegar en Inglaterra desde la India, y fue en busca de un alojamiento, básicamente una habitación para alquilar. Yo siempre solía llamar a los terratenientes ingleses por phnoe primero, para asegurarse de que la habitación estaba disponible, y luego visitar esas direcciones, ubicadas kilómetros de distancia, al tomar el autobús o un tren. A mi llegada, siempre me dijeron que, o bien no había espacio para nada o que la habitación estaba alquilado. Después de una docena de tales experiencias frustrantes, se hizo evidente para mí que la habitación estaba siempre disponible - pero los terratenientes ingleses y patronas eran reacios a alquilar a alguien como yo, un indio o una persona no blanca. Curiosamente, la habitación estaba siempre disponible para mi voz en el teléfono, porque mi voz no podía revelar, ya sea mi color de piel, o de mi carrera o mi origen nacional. El misterio se disipó por lo tanto, y sin embargo, esa comprensión fue sin duda un duro despertar para el color verdadero de la sociedad Inglés. Fue mi primer encuentro con los prejuicios y la discriminación, y el momento más impactante que destruye la inocencia por completo - especialmente después de venir de una cultura noble y la mejor educación que se enorgullece de la igualdad. Yo siempre seguiré siendo agradecidos a inglaterra para la mejor educación que he recibido durante mi doctorado y el máster, tanto como por ejemplo la exposición hacia el lado oscuro del mundo real. Años más tarde, después de llegar a Estados Unidos, me di cuenta de que Estados Unidos es un nuevo mundo maravilloso conjunto que da la bienvenida a todos, y trata a todos con respeto y dignidad que merecen. Dios bendiga a América!
Frank Well, uh I guess I, deep down, am feeling a little confused. I mean, suddenly, you get married, and you're supposed to be this entirely different guy. I don't feel different. I mean, take yesterday for example. We were out at the Olive Garden for dinner, which was lovely. And uh, I happen to look over at a certain point during the meal and see a waitress taking an order, and I found myself wondering what color her underpants might be. Her panties. Uh, odds are they are probably basic white, cotton, underpants. But I sort of think well maybe they're silk panties, maybe it's a thong. Maybe it's something really cool that I don't even know about. You know, and uh, and I started feeling... what what I thought we were in the trust tree in the nest, were we not
I am inferior of any man whose rights I trample under foot. Men are not superior by reason of the accidents of race or color. They are superior who have the best heart--the best brain.
I have a dream, that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today
It citizenship would give to persons of the negro race, who were recognized as citizens in any one State of the Union, the right to enter every other state whenever they pleased, singly or in companies, without pass or passport, andwithout obstruction, to sojourn there as long as they pleased, to go where they pleased at every hour of the day or night without molestation, unless they committed some violation of the law for which a white man would be punished it citizenship would give them the full liberty of speech in public and in private upon all subjects upon which its own citizens might speak to hold public meetings upon political affairs, and to keep and carry arms wherever they went. And all this would be done in the face of the subject race of the same color, both free and slaves, inevitably producing discontent and insubordination among them, and endangering the peace and safety of the State.
Love is a symbol of mutual tolerance and unbiased vision. We should meet each person with love and respect, regardless of nationality, color, or religion. Permeated by love, no one takes up arms, to kill others.
Sharing a strange experience from my student years at Manchester, England, during late 1970's. I had just arrived in England from India, and was searching for an accommodation, basically a room to rent. I always used to call the English landlords by phnoe first, to ensure that a room was available, and then visit those addresses, located miles away, by taking the bus or a train. Upon my arrival, I was always told that either there was no room at all or that the room was just rented. After a dozen or so such frustrating experiences, it became clear to me that the room was always available - but those English landlords and landladies were reluctant to rent it to someone like me, an Indian or a non-white person. Interestingly, the room was always available to my voice on the phone, because my voice could not reveal either my skin color, or my race, or my national origin. The mystery was thus dispelled, and yet that realization was surely a rude awakening to the true color of English society. It was my first encounter with prejudice and discrimination, and the most shocking moment that shatters one's innocence completely - especially after coming from a noble culture and the best upbringing that takes pride in Equality. I shall always remain thankful to England for the best education that I received during my M.S. and Ph.D., as much as for such exposure to the dark side of the real world. Years later, after coming to America, I realized that America is a whole new wonderful world that welcomes all, and treats everyone with respect and dignity they deserve. God Bless America!
The same stream of life that runs through our veins, every moment of nights and days, also runs through the world, through all shapes and forms of life on our planet and the shining stars in distant galexies. This is the same stream of life that brings all of us in sync, regardless of our color, race, gender, religion and national limitations, while dancing in perfect rhythm at all times. This is the same life that smiles in joy every morning through the soil of our earth in countless beautiful flowers, millions of tiny leaves, and infinite blades of grass. As we watch this amazing game of life that is so pure and wonderful with its constant uninterrupted flow, we begin to truly appreciate the Supreme Power that governs this Universe so smoothly. This realization also makes us appreciate, respect and enjoy Life - the greatest gift that comes directly from the Supreme Power to us, lest we forget.
Un "efecto de contagio" es un fenómeno más común en el que la tasa de captación de las creencias y las creencias erróneas aumenta cuanto más que los que ya han sido adoptadas por otros en la sociedad. Personas superficiales se deje llevar por lo que otros hacen, y siempre subirse al carro. Usted no debe llevar por lo que otros hacen o decirle que hacer, y no debe subirse al carro. Debe estar de pie con sus propios valores, con confianza, y sin aleteo, a pesar de que tiene que estar solo - porque usted es el oro, y el oro debe mantener su color, carácter y carisma que establece los más altos estándares para los demás.
In US we had our share of civil conflicts driven by economic forces. The European immigrants brought slaves from Africa to use them as cheap labor for farming their lands. The color of the skin is only a rationalization for the continuation of the slavery system. All the segregation and discrimination rules against the blacks at that time were made to preserve the existing economic system and the interest of its beneficiaries. Though the American civil war was attributed to states and civil rights, the driving forces behind the war was the conflict of economic interests.
If we were to wake up some morning and find that everyone was the same race, creed and color, we would find some other cause for prejudice by noon.
A news sense is really a sense of what is important, what is vital, what has color and life--what people are interested in. That's journalism.
A woodland in full color is awesome as a forest fire, in magnitude at least, but a single tree is like a dancing tongue of flame to warm the heart.
A word is not a crystal, transparent and unchanging, it is the skin of a living thought and may vary greatly in color and content according to the circumstances and time in which it is used.
America is not like a blanket -- one piece of unbroken cloth, the same color, the same texture, the same size. America is more like a quilt -- many patches, many pieces, many colors, many sizes, all woven and held together by a common thread.

An optimist is a person who sees a green light everywhere, while a pessimist sees only the red stoplight... The truly wise person is color- blind.
As the evening sun faded from a salmon color to a sort of flint gray, I thought back to the salmon I caught that morning, and how gray he was, and how I named him Flint.
