RACISM

Just the word makes my skin crawl. I cannot understand why.....why....why ......WHY??!?!?!?!?    Why would someone want to enslave people and make them fail....why would someone want to OWN someone....why would someone want to torture people?????   this is sick, twisted and sad.....

Today I feel nothing but sadness...over the last few days I've become more and more depressed....
But I feel now, more strongly than ever, the words that Bishop Desmond Tutu said awhile ago.....


And so I state to every person who supports racism.........I will not tolerate your stupidity......If you are doing something against another race.... I will not tolerate your stupidity... if you are in support of building up one race to disgrace or discredit another race....I will not tolerate your stupidity.   We need to rise above, but I don't know how. I see black people that are hurting, and from that hurt they are hating, and I cannot blame them or the pain they are feeling.

When I listen to Jon Stewart talk about this situation, I get emotional. ISIS is NOTHING compared to what WE are doing to OURSELVES here in the United States. 9 People have been shot IN A CHURCH where they were minding their own business worshiping, and in one second...9 families were RUINED! These were someone's wives, mothers, fathers, aunts, children......they were PEOPLE...HUMAN BEINGS!!!   If we drew blood from these victims, and drew blood from 9 white people, there would be no way they could tell whose blood is whose. It is a scientific fact. The only way is if one of them had a particular disease associated with a race of people. (sickel cell anemia or Taysachs disease ) Otherwise, blood is blood....that's it. But we are killing each other for something our bodies are wrapped in. It's absurd. I wish we could organize........but we have no leader...................

We are living in a time when the President of the United States, our commander in chief, receives no respect in Congress. Why is that ok? It doesn't matter if you like him as president or not....but he is MR. PRESIDENT....he was voted in there by a majority of the people....period. 

I am married to the most wonderful man in the world....and I feel like I have to defend my relationship with him to both black and white people. I shouldn't have to. We are bound by love...not because of our race, but because of our brain, our souls and our hearts.  

I don't know how this will be fixed...I don't know when or if ever this would be fixed....but all I know is I have to make something start with ME......NO TOLERANCE FOR HATE! ever....ever...ever.....
It doesn't matter if you hate me for being white, flashy, colorful or loud, or if I have a black husband ....I will not hate you back.  If I can't be part of the change, that means I'm part of the problem.......
