Was Marilyn Monroe Green?  A look into what she truly believed.

By Michelina Docimo

Marilyn Monroe

I came across this quote from Marilyn Monroe’s last interview before her death: “What I really want to say: That what the world really needs is a real feeling of kinship. Everybody: stars, laborers, Negroes, Jews, Arabs. We are all brothers. Please don’t make me a joke. End the interview with what I believe”.   Pleading with the reporter to  end the article with this quote, her wish was ignored by the media.

Kinship is one of those words that sounds somewhat archaic or tribal, but I see a revival in the concept of building community bonds.  Some may think of kinship as one of those sentimental niceties, an attempt at social justice and abstract equality.  But behind every art is a science and kinship is a social science.  It is the study of our human origins, how we organize networks, and how we communicate in terms of language and culture with those inside our network as well as those outside this system.   What’s so green about kinship?  Developing a system and sense of kinship is about respecting origins, people, culture, and place.   This creates identity which breeds a sense of belonging to a community.  Who wouldn’t want to be kin with Marilyn?
