Day 44: One Tribe

We all would like to say that the days of racism are over.  The truth is, they’re not.  The whites still think that they’re better than the other races.  The blacks and the Hispanics are still vying for fairness and equality.  The asians are still thought of as lesser races even though they’re not.  It’s because of this that a lot of countries, of people, of communities don’t like the white people all that much.

Many people have tried, over and over again, to breach the gap between races, between colors, and between religion.  Some of them managed to do so, but they only do so when they are alive.  Once the central figure of this change and acceptance is dead, the people revert to being wary of one another and to being racists.

Of course, the battle between races isn’t the only thing that divides us all.  Even the various religions seem not too keen on the prospect of unity.  Why do I say such a thing?  Well, if they are, they wouldn’t go saying that they are the only ones who are going to be saved.  They wouldn’t be a bunch of hypocrites who talk about service, love, free will, faith and all that stuff and then force people to believe what they believe.  They should know that there is only one true religion–the religion that God has showed us–and that religion is love.  If the religion teaches love rather than hate, then shouldn’t that be enough?  Shouldn’t other sects not care if this religion believed in this or that so long as they believe in One God and love?

I know that talking about peace isn’t exactly new.  Everyone has their own ideas of what peace is and how it can be attained.  But, even though we know how to achieve peace without bloodshed, politicians would still opt to use war as a means.

They can’t get money out of peace, and neither can those companies who revel in the art of war.  It’s sad, but it’s the truth now-a-days.

This is what’s going on my head after hearing this song from the Black Eyed Peas on the Songs for Japan album (this song is also in their latest album).  The title of this song (as stated in the post title) is One Tribe.

It’s a good song, but it is kind of idealistic.

Below are the lyrics to the song.  Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh!
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh!
Woah-oh-oh-oh-ooooh!
Oh-woah-oh!

One Tri…
One Tri…
One Tribe, One Time, One Planet, One Race
Its all one blood, don’t care about your face
The color of your eye
Or the tone of your skin
Don’t care where you are
Don’t care where you been
Cause where we gonna go
Is where we wanna be
The place where the little language is unity
And the continent is called Pangaea
And the main ideas are connected like a spear
No propaganda, They tried to upper hand us
Cause man I’m loving this peace
Man, man, I’m loving this peace
Man, man, I’m loving this peace
I don’t need no leader
That’s gonna force feed a
Concept that make me think I need to
Fear my brother and fear my sister
And shoot my neighbor
Or my big missile
If I had an enemy to [enemy]
If I had an enemy to [enemy]
If I had an enemy
Then my enemy is gonna try to come and kill me
Cause I’m his enemy
There’s one tribe ya’ll

One tribe ya’ll
One tribe ya’ll
One tribe ya’ll
We are one people
Let’s cast amnesia, forget about all that evil
Forget about all that evil, that evil that they feed ya
Let’s cast amnesia, forget about all that evil
That evil that they feed ya
Remember that we’re one people
We are one people
One people, one people [One People]
One people, one people [One People]
One people, one people [One People]

One tribe, one tribe
One tribe, one time, one planet, one [race]
Race, one love, one people, one [and]
Too many things that’s causing one [to]
Forget about the main cause
Connecting, uniting
But the evil is seen and alive in us
So our hopes are colliding
And our peace is sinking like Poseidon
But, we know that the one [one]
The evil one is threatened by the sum [sum]
So he’ll come and try and separate the sum
But he dumb, he didn’t know we had a way to overcome
Rejuvenated by the beating of the drum
Come together by the cycle of the hum
Freedom when all become one [one]
Forever

One tribe ya’ll
One tribe ya’ll
One tribe ya’ll
We are one people
Let’s cast amnesia
Forget about all that evil [evil]
Forget about all that evil [evil]
That evil that they feed ya
Let’s cast amnesia
Forget about all that evil [evil]
That evil, that they feed ya [feed ya]
Remember that we’re one people
We are one people
One people, one people [One People]
One people, one people [One People]
One people, one people [One People]

One love, one blood, one people
One heart, one beat, we equal
Connected like the internet
United that’s how we do
Lets break walls, so we see through
Let love and peace lead you
We could overcome the complication cause we need to
Help each other, make these changes
Brother, sister, rearrange this
The way I’m thinking that we can change this bad condition
Wait, use you mind and not your greed
Let’s connect and then proceed
This is something I believe
We are one, we’re all just people

One tribe ya’ll
One tribe ya’ll
One tribe ya’ll
We are one people
Let’s cast amnesia
Forget about all that evil
Forget about all that evil, that evil that they feed ya
Let’s cast amnesia
Let’s cast amnesia, forget about all that evil
That evil, that they feed ya
We’re one tribe ya’ll
We people, we people
One tribe ya’ll
One people, one people [One People]
One people, one people [One People]
One people, one people [One People]
One people, one people [One People]
One people, one people [One People]
One people, one people [One People]

Lets, lets cast amnesia
Lord help me out
Trying to figure out what its all about [what its all about]
Cause we’re one in the same [one in the same]
Same joy, same pain
And I hope that you’re there when I need ya
Cause maybe we need amnesia
And I don’t wanna sound like a preacher
But we need to be one

One world, one love, one passion
One tribe, one understanding
Cause you and me can become one.
