Why Can’t We Be Friends? By Smash Mouth

This song is like the opposite of what Hitler wanted…

“The colour of your skin don’t matter to me, as long as we can live in harmony.” “Why can’t we be friends?” Is a great question to ask, we’re all human and struggle through similar things, social constructs and judging people on their differences to you and boxing them away, could get in the way of an otherwise great friendship. Whether they’re a different age, race, gender, ability, intelligence or they’re just a sports fan, we’ve all got similarities we can connect to. It’s just human nature I guess, but it’s quite black and white thinking.

Maybe constantly looking for differences, breeds negativity, rejection and disapproval and in turn, looking for similarities breeds positivity, inclusion and acceptance? I know which society I’d rather live in!
