One Nation Under God Essay

877 words - 4 pages


     Would God categorize his children? That is a question that I believe most would

give a simple and direct answer: No. Would the United States categorize their citizens?

Although the Amendment suggests that all men and women are equal, the fact is, the

people of the United States are continuously being classified. So, if indeed the United

States is one nation under God, why do we continue to sort ourselves through

unreasonable and unethical factors? The misinterpretation of race has shattered the

American society and for all that it stands. We should correct America’s immoral actions

and assumptions that separate God’s children in hope of reforming the United States

toward true equality.

     The United States is supposed to be a nation of equal beings, yet the

government, companies, and organizations in America use race in questionnaires and

forms. For example, ******************* admissions form asks to check one of the

boxes containing the following: African American, American Indian/Alaskan Native,

Asian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic, White, Other, and Prefer not to answer. Prefer not to

answer should be the most logical choice, but still, the question of race in general, should

not be of any concern, especially for filing purposes. Despite the fact, we are haunted by

the categorization of our "ethnic background," which vaguely describes our personality.

Many other organizations prefer to ask about race, but when we inquired for our ethnic

background, we should think about how and why it would be of any concern if we are

considered equal under God. And when asked for ethnic background, we should wonder

why the selections are merely categorized by color of skin, rather than precise nationality.

How can we be equal in America, yet be judged by the color of our skin? The truth is, we

are deceived by many organizations claiming equality when asked the questions of our

background. Background is simple visualization of our family lineage. Character is still

varied from person to person, whether a person is from the same location of the world or

not. If we are truly equal in race, ethnic background should be of no concern to records

but to idolize diversity. Therefore, the question of our ethnicity should no longer exist

regarding any person for recording purposes such as forms or applications.

     Unfortunately, the United States has a social defect which disregards the equality

between human beings. This they call "interracial relationships." "Interracial

relationships," is an immoral expression because it demoralizes couples of the opposite

color. But an interracial relationship is not a relationship between two different colors of the

skin, it is a...
