    Thumbs up Aruba...Diverse and Accepting Island

    I was thinking…..
    While watching and and reading the news here in the USA re: that tragic shooting and the cries of injustices ……….
    It became apparent to me that Aruba has done so much of a better job at being color/race blind.
    Yes the USA is a melting pot for all.
    But we continue to bicker and we continue to hate and we continue to not be colorblind.



    In Aruba, what I see is a magnificent lesson to be learned…..”acceptance.”
    Aruba is small and also a melting pot….it is just a given that folks accept and cherish their neighbor,
    dark skinned or light skinned or anything in between with not a second thought.



    How fine would it be if Aruba mostly known for being one “happy island” would also be known
    as the most “inclusive and accepting island.”

    I was mentioning to my husband while we were driving around Aruba last week that people there seemed to practice common sense and respect for others and wouldn't it be amazing if that happened here. I was talking more about drivers then - but it does seem to apply to everything.

    Andrea, that is so true. There are many here in the US that could learn to be more tolerant and friendly!

    Not that I would have first-hand personal experience, but, if a friend who is a minority by race, creed, orientation, etc here in the US asked me about travel to Aruba I would endorse it whole-heatedly.

    I don't believe "American" is a race but a nationality. However if American was a race, there would be no need for racism. God knows Heinz 57 has nothing on us for a variety of ingredients.
