Hello everyone, welcome again to my reallyreallife. There is so much going on in the world but today, we will take a lighter look at the world that goes on around us.
I am a black man. Frequently I encounter people, usually white, who will take what I say and translate it into something I did not say. They usually end up with the feeling that I have an "attitude" or some other malady. My question is this, is there a secret school that you can go to and learn how to tell what a persons attitude is even if the person tells you that you are not correct? Sometimes a black man standing up for himself means he has an attitude or a problem. Oftentimes, it seems as though free speech is not for everyone unless it is in the manner that the listener deems appropriate, not the speaker. You might be thinking that I have a problem with race or ethnicity...that is not the case.
In fact some of my friends think I am too hard on white people. This is certainly not true because when I want to hear the Word of God Preached, it is usually white men I am listening to. I am a born again christian, not just a christian. What is the difference you ask? A Christan will lie, steal, cheat, kill, etc...A born again christian will not. We are not perfect, just better. Here is just one example...born again Christians do not condone abortions, Christians do.
Here I am again, full of controversy!
More controversy? okay then...I would never go to an all black church. I will go to a church that includes white, black, Spanish and everybody else. Who is at your church? The same faces as yours? Heaven is diverse so I want to interact with my brothers and sisters as we will interact in heaven. More controversy...Barack Obama will destroy this country. (to explain this from A to Z will require a lot of space. More controversy...North Carolina is the worst State in the union. Too many old school racists. I guess we gotta wait till the white hip hoppers can make some calls in order for change to come to this backwater state. Sometimes it feels like the 60's without the lynching. I love America, but as an old soldier who has travelled this country from one coast to the other, this place is the worst.
More controversy...when are black people going to stand against the violence that our young people are inflicting in our communities and on each other? If white people killed blacks at the rate we do, there would be calls for congressional investigations and riots in the streets. We have to put the black family back together. That means a mother and a father. Not a woman trying to do the job. I have seen the girls out of control girls raised by single mothers. Any wonder why the boys are so out of control? Some women can raise a boy, most cannot. Some women know how to put a foot in a young boys butt, that is why they can do it successfully.
Why am I the only man in most of my college classes. Are they dead, in jail, lazy, stupid, drug addicted? What is up with that?
I hope that there are none offended by my writing, but this is my reallyreallife. Peace!
