I am really sick and tired of all this talk about racism in the United States. I do not see how we can have a Mulatto president (no one ever says this but he is as much white as black, and that is called a Mulatto), a billionaire hostess for television (Oprah), sports and newscasters, movie stars, scientists,athletes, musicians, educators, mayors and other politicians, etc. etc. etc. and be such a racist country! I am not just talking about black – but Mexican, Asian and all other people originally from a different culture.
When you are born an American or become an American, or strive to become an American – then you are AMERICAN first, with individual “heritage” next = American African, American Mexican, American whatever!
We are a nation of mixed cultures, and if I do say so, whatever combination mixed seems to be quite nice combinations!
KEEP THE PEASANTS divided! That is what this is all about. If a people is divided it makes them powerless to have an uprising, or be any real problem for those “in charge” (politicians, bankers, and the fast growing monopolies).
They become just workers. You don’t have to stand united as a people to work 70 to 90 hours a week!
The PROBLEM, as I see it, IS AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN poverty and lack of REAL education. Poverty causes a multitude of problems.
Do I have answers? Not really. Prayers, anything I am able to do within the realm of my world, and perhaps sharing my thoughts with those of you who enjoy my blogs.
I don’t care for Oprah myself, and I have strong reasons for that – but truth be told – I don’t KNOW Oprah and I am no one’s judge! She did rise from poverty and sexual abuse, to a woman with power and money. It can be done.
Lastly for today, FYI, I am tired of being blamed for everything. I was born white (actually I am a mutt) and have a mixed heritage. I look white. I had NOTHING to do with what happened over 100 years ago. I believe in loving and kindness. I am no man or woman’s judge, and when I “select” people to hang with (and I am particular) – it has NOTHING, ZIP, NADA to do with culture or heritage. I want to spend my time with people who are loving, kind, curious, intelligent (that doesn’t always mean educated), funny, and very spiritual!
As a little additional factoid – it was the Portuguese who first used slaves from Africa. The people in America were the last to use humans for slaves. Did you know their own countrymen (Africans) sold the first slaves and many thereafter! The black man was the first to sell black men!
So lighten up everyone. The deal is to love the heart and spirit- and that comes in many colors!
