The President-elect Is a Chance at the Highest Spiritual Act Man Can Do

I was listening to the talking heads. They were trying to assess the administration-elect so far. Why has Barack got a seventy-three percent approval rating? Higher than any president-elect in history? National emergency? W. Bush had a high approval rating as president, but that was based on a false... Sign in to see full entry.

Stand on the steps of Lincoln and Douglas, tell us what we're going to do. Wait for the night. We do not believe it likely for we have learned to believe without believing We have paid lip service to personal hope so long now that We only believe in a fourth-generation Virginian But in the wild of...

True Grit, True Lies, True Blood Pt. 2

I read in a magazine today (Slate) how HBO's "True Blood" was adapted from the Charlaine Harris series entitled Sooky Stackhouse. My daughter read those her senior year in high school in her free time. Harris' "Shakespeare Arkansas" series got me through my divorce period of the last decade. So, I... Sign in to see full entry.

True Grit, True Lies, True Blood

HBO has another hit. The title turned me off at first. In fact I missed the first few episodes and I'm just getting caught up. "True Blood". Placed in a backwater parish in Louisiana, the series asks us to believe that the existence of vampires is so accepted, that Christian Coalition politicians... Sign in to see full entry.

Venetian Nails - At the Mall - Where the Angels Live!

I am sitting in the vibrating chair, my feet steeping in a hot, soapy whirlpool bath. One of the Venetian angels is ministering to my feet the new religion we have learned past the age of fifty called Pedicure! My baby has wandered off to buy a new pair of jeans for school, but before leaving me,... Sign in to see full entry.

Historical Review of Segregation.

For the benefit of those denying complicity in "white racism", here is a review of segregation in American schools. The Supreme Court, in 1896, decided that "separate but equal" schools for whites and blacks, was constitutional. Then in 1954, the Supreme Court reversed a state law, in Brown v. Board...

How Do We Separate that Survivors' Strength from the Hurt that Caused It?

I'm in the middle of Barack Obama's "Dreams From My Father", and have once again stumbled upon the very challenge I face every day. Minorities in the ghetto adjusting to society, must conform to society's rules, laws, and expectations if they are to thrive. Yet, what holds many of us back is our... Sign in to see full entry.

We're Republicans. I whispered, welcome aboard. Why are we whispering?

Barack Obama had to come to terms with his African-Americanism, the way all blacks do in this country. That means to accept his status as a second-class citizen, to remain calm when racist remarks and misunderstandings occur, to turn the other cheek in order to avoid trouble while climbing the...

What It Means To Be "Utterly Alone" At A Young Age

Scrolling and reviewing this blog, one gets the idea that children of color, and other minorities, have additional challenges to face aside from not having been ready when school life commenced. We easily befriend others in school, getting past teasing and schoolyard bullying, but become confused in... Sign in to see full entry.
