The one thing that you will not find in the Eddas and Sagas is racism amongst Midgardians. Actually one of the wonderful aspects of the Viking mentality was that after their raids were done they would often settle in these areas and freely mix with the populace, and inter -marry with them. You see this throughout the Viking Age with their settlements in Ireland, Britain, France, and Russia, especially in the Baltic states. I, like most of you, am not pure Scandinavian, but a mix of Norwegian, Dutch, French, German, and British. My lack of " pure blood " , does not diminish my love and respect for the Gods and Goddesses, nor has it ever stopped the Gods from speaking freely with me. The Gods judge us on our sense of honor, dignity, respect, and humanity, not what color our skin is, or what part of the world we come from. If the Gods choose someone, for that matter anyone, who is from outside of our Germanic / Scandinavian heritage sphere, then we should accept it and welcome them into the fold. To turn away someone who was chosen by the Gods would be a dishonor to the God (s) or Goddess ( es) who chose that individual. We do not have that right !
Racism is not a component of most religions, and should by no means be a part of ours. Racism is a choice, in most cases a political, and personal choice. It should not be a part of our religion, and must never be a part of a ritual, or ceremony. If you want to hate and be prejudiced in this world that is your right as an independent human being, but once you become a member of a religion you need to check that hatred at the door for the greater good of those in the kindred or organization, and out of respect for the Gods and Goddesses. Our religion is firmly based on a strong pedestal of honor, and I will say this now as I have said it for years : " There is no honor in dishonoring others ! " When you dishonor others you dishonor all those who came before you who are watching you to see what heights of greatness you have reached. If you want to honor those who are our ancestors and show the Gods and Goddesses your greatness, then show others.... Hell, show the world that we are better than they are by being above such petty crap as hating people because they do not look like us, or sound like us. Honor Odin by honoring others ! All others !
Go with Odin's wisdom, Freyja's love, and Thor's protection !
