A Frog in the Well (A Proverb about Visible Minorities)

The frog in the well knows nothing of the great ocean. — Japanese Proverb

Likewise, people who socially isolate themselves from other communities actually know nothing about the ocean of humanity that stretches around the world.

Just knowing my own ethnic community means I don't know jack about other ethnic minorities with whom I share similar stories of aversion, outright hatred, and other injustices which are all in common.

As long as we remain in our communities, and refuse to join in solidarity with other visible minorities, we are doing an injustice to the betterment of visible minorities, both in Canada and around the world.
