|Black vs. White
Ah, black vs. white. But what about all the people who end up being gray? You know, the ones on both sides of the fence? Do black and white stop to think about them, or do both sides just assume that they will take their side any time they need them to?
Most of the time it's not bad to be on both sides. It means you have lots of friends. But for every upside there is, there's a down -- like when black starts to fight with white, and you get to hear all the foul things said. You really can't say anything without taking the chance of making things worse on both sides. But sometimes (very rarely) you have to say something, even if it will make thing worse.
How many shades of gray should there be? Is there a right shade of gray at the right time or should a gray person be gray at all times? Like when black just starts to talk really bad smack about white. Do you defend white or should you not say anything and just disagree with the majority of what they are saying? I guess the real question is, do you step in and try to calm the waters or do you just stay out of the way and let black and white butt heads with each other...
Not very many people can really say that they are on both sides of the fence. But for those who are on both sides, I know what it's like. I've been on both sides of the fence for the last year. Luckily for me the fight itself, for the most part, has stopped, but there are still some really bad feelings between people.
To ALL the gray people who try to keep the peace or those who just don't care, and just want to have fun, keep up the good work. And hey, if they want to fight, let them. Just think of them as one big, live, soap opera. And one day, all soap operas must come to an end.
