My Thoughts On The Existence of “White Privilege”

I've been reading a lot lately about "racism" and "white privilege". I'd like to introduce a new perspective, if you will. I will start by saying that the color of a person's skin SHOULD NOT matter. For all those folks whose gut reaction is, "But, it DOES matter!"= WHY? The very fact that there are … Continue reading My Thoughts On The Existence of “White Privilege”

Red Light… Green Light…Red Light…

People need to take a few minutes and put on the brakes. We could all benefit from reminding ourselves that we don't all like the same things. Sometimes we feel very strongly about our like, or dislike, of things. When does our like, or dislike, cross a line? I know it might be an opinion, … Continue reading Red Light… Green Light…Red Light…

Notafinga…

I'm not really angry, but am sure at a loss for words. It doesn't feel good inside to consistently feel misunderstood. It's like there's this me on the inside who is constantly screaming and is never heard...at least not truly. Do I hear it in people's voices when they speak to me? You betcha! The … Continue reading Notafinga…

The Rise Of The Machines…

Blog is reblogged from a previous site: I am the sole author of this content.    I was born in the time before computers became the bane of our existence.  The truth is, I still remember what that was like...even though I was only a kid when I was introduced to the Commodore 64.  Yep...that … Continue reading The Rise Of The Machines…

“Self-centered” Thinking

I've given myself time to reflect over the past couple of days.  I'm not sure that it's made anything clearer, and I'm almost certain that the muddiness is even muddier than it was before I began to reflect.  At the center of everything is me, so yes...I am being a bit "self-centered" here.  However, aren't … Continue reading “Self-centered” Thinking

So Long And Thanks For All Your Threat…

First, I want to say that sending me threats via comment, probably not the most intelligent thing to do. Second, it might be a fair thing to suggest understanding the terms "slander", "character assassination", and "libel". I'm well aware of all three definitions, and am also aware of the legal ramifications of such, as well … Continue reading So Long And Thanks For All Your Threat…

Call Me W.I.P.

Oh yes I am, a bonafide "Work In Progress", or W.I.P. for short.  Somehow I think I've always been, and yet still I know I'll always be, and that's all there is to it.  But what does that mean?  I can say it about myself, and I know that it's true, yet I am unsure … Continue reading Call Me W.I.P.

Pride definitely goeth before the fall….

Okay, so I don't usually write two blogs in a day, but I couldn't keep this from circling in my head, so here it goes.  Pride definitely seems to be a word that I hear a LOT nowadays:  black pride, gay pride, etc.  It definitely got me thinking, because it seems that no matter which … Continue reading Pride definitely goeth before the fall….

Why Hate You, When You Can Hate Me…….

I guess I'm not finished ranting quite yet.  I talked about definitions in "Defining" Moments, and I'm not done with those.  I want to talk about the REAL issue that's going on.  It isn't about RACISM, not even a little bit.  Well, okay...maybe for some folks it is (the white supremacist groups that exist- and … Continue reading Why Hate You, When You Can Hate Me…….

“Defining” Moments

I have reached a point where I'd literally like to THROTTLE people!!  The abundance of ignorance that surrounds me is mind-boggling, to say the least.  I've begun to despise being around people, begun to see social media as a blight, or plague, upon the earth, and have really begun to wonder WHAT ON EARTH are … Continue reading “Defining” Moments
