Different

All organisms strive to survive. Human beings are the most intelligent of them all. Familiarity is key to our survival. We often gravitate to people who are similar to ourselves. It is much easier to connect with others who have things in common with ourselves. These things often include physical attributes such as skin color. People who do not have much in common with ourselves are different. Different is unfamiliar. Different is a possible threat to our survival. I was a boy when Do The Right Thing (1989) was first released in theaters. I enjoyed it but not nearly as much as when I saw it in a film class in college. I have never seen anything else like it. This film provides you with a wonderful opportunity to reexamine yourself. You may not like what you find.
