Americans have got to stop being led like puppets by wealthy elitists.

I read an article in DW by Sam Baker. I like her and she has some good points, however, she showed her white elitist view on America. She went to a private school. She did grow up as a member of the white privileged. She does benefit from white privilege. Except I would argue thatContinue reading “Americans have got to stop being led like puppets by wealthy elitists.”

We are all the same in the eyes of God

For 8 years, Obama stirred the pot and deepened the racial divide. For 8 years, we constantly heard white privilege. Last time I checked, there were plenty of white kids who couldn’t afford food, housing and education. White people living on the streets and in homeless shelters are not privileged. But hey, continue with yourContinue reading “We are all the same in the eyes of God”

America has a path to choose. One of hate and division or one of unity and progress.

I have posted quite a bit on here about various rights Americans are guaranteed in the US Constitution and about teaching our one shared American history in its entirety. I believe in our constitution and it’s ability to allow for progress, growth, and changes as our country changes. I believe in all of our rights.Continue reading “America has a path to choose.

Go after the people who are funding terrorist groups such as ANTIFA. Confiscate the money. Arrest terrorists for federal crimes.

Most of America can see ANTIFA is leading the riots throughout the US. Most of America can see where this road is leading. There isn’t going to be any choice but to call in the military if rioting and destruction continues. There will be more blood in the streets and a civil war if thisContinue reading “Go after the people who are funding terrorist groups such as ANTIFA. Confiscate the money.

Black people are better at rioting than white people. Is 2020 over yet?

Stop it with the riots and looting. It’s self destructive and only damaging your argument. We are all on board with the four police officers being fired in Minneapolis. Most of us would like to see all four of them charged. One was charged today with 3rd degree murder and manslaughter. I think everyone isContinue reading “Black people are better at rioting than white people. Is 2020 over yet?”

Reopen the US before it melts down completely. Minneapolis is going to take years to heal.

I posted two posts about racism and prejudice before seeing the atrocity in Minneapolis. The video is online showing the white police officer with his knee on a black man’s neck choking him out as he and onlookers pleaded with the police officer that the man was dying. Three other police officers watched. Supposedly, theContinue reading “Reopen the US before it melts down completely. Minneapolis is going to take years to heal.”

“You are raising him white” Further observations of racism and prejudice in America.

My son is mixed race. Since he has been born, I have heard a litany of ridiculous comments from people. The one I find most dumbfounding is “You are raising him white.” I have heard this comment from white people in various places. Usually accompanied by white people are not racist. Usually preceded by theContinue reading ““You are raising him white” Further observations of racism and prejudice in America.”

Racism and Prejudice Exist in America

Racism and prejudice both very much exist in the US as they do around the world. I do not believe that it is as prevalent as it once was in the US. I believe we have made a lot of progress but we aren’t there yet. We will never completely eradicate racism or prejudice. ————————————————————————————————-Continue reading “Racism and Prejudice Exist in America”

I once had someone ask me repeatedly why I liked him.

Have you ever had someone ask you why you like them and you never really answered their question? Maybe you didn’t know why. Maybe you weren’t ready to answer. Maybe you didn’t know them that well. Maybe you thought they were looking for a specific answer but you weren’t sure what answer they were lookingContinue reading “I once had someone ask me repeatedly why I liked him.”

I don’t believe in this world. My technicolor dream.

When I don’t feel well or am thinking about a problem before drifting off to sleep, I often have technicolor dreams. I just woke up from a two hour nap and decided to share while this one is still fresh in my mind. I Don’t Believe in this World I was sitting in my livingroomContinue reading “I don’t believe in this world. My technicolor dream.”
