Love God, Love people

this weekend i read a few reports about racism and discrimination that not only irritated the life out of me, they lead me to evaluate my judgemental practices.  yesterday i was reminded how as a Christian i've been given two primary duties:
1) Love God
2) Love people
1 John 4:7-12

These two rules seem very easy to follow, yet i struggle specifically with loving people who i deem lesser than myself. to be frank Ghetto People. i admit i have the hardest time, accepting, dealing with, including, and loving ghetto people. this may sound silly, but really i've gone out of my way to ensure that my dealings with 'ghetto people' are few and far between. so i'm going to try, with the help of the Holy Spirit to be obedient to the word and love people ALL people (Lord help).
