Notes Of A Conversation With 'abdu'l-baha






A Coloured man from South Africa who was visiting 'Abdu'l-Baha, said that
even now no white people really cared very much for the black man.

'Abdu'l-Baha replies: Compare the present time and the feeling towards the
coloured people now, with the state of feeling two or three hundred years
ago, and see how much better it is at present. In a short time the
relationship between the coloured and white people will still further
improve, and bye and bye no difference will be felt between them. White
doves and purple doves exist, but both kinds are doves.

Baha'u'llah once compared the coloured people to the black pupil of the
eye surrounded by the white. In this black pupil you see the reflection of
that which is before it, and through it the light of the Spirit shines
forth.

In the sight of God colour makes no difference at all, He looks at the
hearts of men. That which God desires from men is the heart. A black man
with a good character is far superior to a white man with a character that
is less good.
