Inclusion without exclusion

When you look at me
as if to say,
"We're all in this together,"
does it also mean
we're bonding against
or laughing about
some Other?

How can we teach
the ones to whom
the world will soon belong
that inclusion need not include
that you and I together
might never need to mean
"against him or them."

I wish not approve on it. I think warm-hearted post. Especially the designation attracted me to be familiar with the whole story.
