I actually stand by what I said in my last article, but I felt that it was to negative and spewed with anger and resentment at one person when I really need to get down and nasty with anyone/everyone that cannot show respect towards those who are of a different race, religion, creed, or skin tone.
I have no problem with people who get involved in interracial marriages, but I met someone who gave birth to two women and wants nothing to do with them because they are of a different skin tone than herself. She is white and the father was black and both daughters are black to. What did she think they were going to turn out…purple, pink, red, blue??? It was so infuriating.
I have two kids that I would love to see, but there are complications beyond my control involved. I wouldn’t care what color my kids were. I jokingly call myself a heinze 57 sauce when people ask my nationality….because if you name it, then it is probably in there just like the sauce…lol. My family has so many nationalities in it.I’m part German, English, Irish, Scottish, Jewish, French…the list goes on I’m told. I even have some black in my background. My mother can deny it all she wants…. However, as I was reading along some articles, I read that Black Dutch are not actually Dutch but half German and Half Black. I thought that was so cool. Guess what my mother said we were descendants from …wait for it…the Black Dutch. So super Awesome. You can either accept me for me or kiss my little nose.
People who can’t accept others for who they are instead of what they are about and what they do in life kind of urks me. I mean, it doesn’t really matter what religion you choose, what gender you are, what nationality you come from, what color your skin is, etc…If you are doing good things for others…if you are not hurting anyone else…if you are willing to let others into your heart and help them without passing judgment on them, then I think you are pretty cool.
Not everyone gets the big picture, and I doubt that we all will.
Not everyone will agree with me, and that doesn’t bother me.
It is up to me to throw away the gauntlet and say despite your difference in views/ideals and such, I still care and love you…my brother/sister/double-gendered sibling here on earth. We are all siblings no matter what religion/nationality/etc that divides us. We all came from the same branch of the tree of life. All the religions speak of the creation of man. Not all of them agree on how it came to be, but we all agree that we were created in some form or fashion by something or someone…a Divine Omnipotent Power beyond our understanding by some. Others believe that the cosmos and our own existence is a complete utter fluke and accident. Maybe, but I doubt that. I won’t rule out that evolution probably played a key role in our Creator’s plan though.
I’m not here to judge anyone, although I guess by saying that others are wrong for hating others over petty differences in opinions/skin tone and such, then even that itself is passing judgment isn’t it. But, it is wrong…So even I am guilty of passing judgment.
As for my friend who doesn’t want to be in her daughter’s life because they live in a black world as she put it….I feel that a mother’s love should be unconditional. Once the children have grown, it is their life and they need to live it the way they feel is proper. You don’t give life to a child and then throw it away just because it becomes inconvenient… I can understand if a woman is raped and wishes to give the children up for adoption. I can understand if the woman is mentally/physically handicapped in some form and doesn’t know how to care for it. Those are mitigating circumstances, but if the child you give life to, is of a different skin tone or religion, well…I can’t understand that.
I recently read an article about a mother who killed her baby in a microwave. That freakin creeped me out. I would have hated to have been her child. There are lunatics giving birth to kids, and no one is doing anything to protect the children. My ex tried to kill me, and the courts gave the kids to him instead of me who had raised those children for 10 yrs without any help. They did so because, I have Asperger’s, ADHD, Epilepsy, and I’m a Wiccan. The judge said it was because I missed my scheduled appointment, but I never missed that appointment as I tried to tell the judge, and I was having a pitmal seizure, which was extremely evident to see during the hearing. The judge didn’t make any effort to postpone anything till I was better. His mind was already made up from the beginning. This is what our world is coming to. Bigotry, hate and fear are everywhere….including our own courtrooms. I fear for our people. I fear for our children. I fear for our world.
