How to end Racism.

16 Nov

This blog is about ending racism. It is so easy to point out racism or wrong doings of other ethnic groups. Doing so diverts attention from the real issue, that’s racism within your own ethnic group. Every ethnic group has some form of racism, but to deny it or not fight it is saying you agree with racism. The fastest way to accept bad behavior is to keep quiet.

I know I am not the only one who has been told that I am the reason racism is alive, that I am the one race baiting. What I do will point out the racist ways within my ethnic group , others in my ethnic group tell me to shut up about it, and then racism will go away. I disagree with that logic.  It is the same logic of letting your child mouth off or call the other parent names while you sit back and say nothing. When both parents do not band together, the child thinks the quiet parent agrees with that child’s bad behavior. That way of thinking only allows the child to act worse day after day.

If you want racism to end, you have to address the cancer within your ethnic group.When you have a medial issue, do you address it and fix it, or do you ignore it thinking it will go away? When you see it, you have to step up and call the person(s) out and stand up for the victim. It’s not a hard concept to do, it’s just a hard concept to accept.

We as humans need to get rid of this cancer in our own ethnic groups, so stand up and end it in your ethnic group. Stop ignoring it , it will not go away unless you chase it away.

My DNA ethnicity results. Surprising!

16 Jul

A while back I decided to do a DNA test just to see what my ethnic makeup is. I got the results back and I was surprised as to what I am and what I am not. I have been watching many videos on YouTube and seeing the surprising results.

I have also realized as to how interwoven our DNA results are. Believe it or not we are more alike than we are not. Even though we all look differently with skin and hair.Not all fair-skinned folks are 100% European, and not all darker skinned folks are 100% African. Our DNA proves we are much more connected  than one would think.

With all of these hate groups, discrimination and killings going on ; I would suggest more people do a DNA test to see that they probably have the ethnicity that they hate so much within their own DNA. Everything that we believe is taught from a very early age. We are taught to hate or love certain ethnicity, religions, or sexual groups. If you let science show you the way, it will show how wrong you were taught from an early age.

Even if you are 100% European or 100% African, you still may have certain European or African tribes/Groups in you that you have been taught to hate. Teaching negative ideas is what is wrong with this world. I hope that changes , we all need love and not hate.

Watch my video and see what I’m made up with. YouTube link to my DNA results.

 

Black lives matter.

9 Sep

Yes I agree that Black lives matter. I also think that all lives matter no matter the race or ethnicity of the individual. There is nothing wrong with peaceful protests when an unarmed African-American / black person is gunned down by a cop.

As a white man on the outside looking in, I have a few questions and points to make. Since Black lives matter, where is the outrage within the African-American / black community when gangs take over a neighborhood and killings happen? Since Black lives matter, where is the outrage when schools close down in the African-American / black communities? Since Black lives matter where is the outrage with the parents when their kids drop out of school or fail classes? Since Black lives matter, where is the outrage when a young African-American / black woman has children out-of-wedlock or the man does not stick around to be in the child’s life? If the African-American / black community would protest for these sad reasons, then the protests for cops killing unarmed African-American/ black people would be more legitimate to others.

I as a white man would love to see communities in the African-American / black communities protest and have uprisings to squash gangs, school dropouts, unwed woman giving birth to fatherless kids, schools closings, and so on. I also think the “stop snitching” attitude within the African-American /  black community hurts the Black lives matter movement. If Black lives matter, then people would snitch all day long. Peer-pressure is a strong thing to have on your side.

Are there unwed mothers and crime in other communities? Yes there are, I just want to see the Black lives matter succeed and I think addressing these issues within the community; that is when Black lives matter will work for the better.

That’s my two cents.

It starts with breakfast and ends with supper!

pizzaWhile i was eating this burnt pizza, I was thinking about today’s society and the way humans behave. I had to eat this burnt pizza because I had no other choice. I had to eat what was put in front of me ( due to no other food or money to buy other foods) and I had to be happy with what I had. This way of thinking was instilled in my mind at an early age from my parents. If I didn’t eat what was in front of me, I went without. I had to learn to deal with what was in front of me at an early age. That type of thinking transcends to all parts of my life.  Unlike what I see others doing ; others complain and whine like a spoiled brat.

I think people who whine and complain about what’s in front of them starts with breakfast and ends with supper. I see and hear stories of parents making 5 different meals so their kids can eat what they like and not learn to eat what’s in front of them. That has caused a ripple effect in the way our society acts today. Look around you, you will see selfish acting adults/ children because they ate what they wanted, not what was given to them.  Kids and adults alike who have a hard time dealing with what’s in front of them, go off in a tantrum and/or commit crimes ; crimes of passion or crimes that make no sense what so ever, all because they were raised to eat what they liked ;  not what was put in front of them.  They will make bad personal and/or business decisions all because they have a hard time dealing with what’s in front of them. If only parents acted like parents and made their kids eat what they made, regardless if the child liked it or not.

Society will only get better if parents stop making multiple meals and just make one meal and walk off.  Think about it.

National Commercial and Youtube.

Reposition your body in the bed of life. A new perspective.

28 Jan

Yesterday I had some moles removed , and I now have stitches in my body. It made it difficult to lay in bed; so I had to reposition my body so I could lay down and watch T.V. until I fell asleep. While I was watching T.V. from another angle, I was thinking to myself that this old T.V. looks like a new one from this angle.

I got to thinking, maybe people need to change their mind, body, and logical way of thinking in life; they may see things differently and not be so closed-minded or stubborn.  I see too many people who will stay in the same mindset no matter how much mental pain they are in. This world would be more tolerant if folks would just roll over their mind, or turn around and see what’s going on behind them. If they would just open their minds up, they will see their old way  of thinking as not much fun as the new way. Take your mind or head and turn it over and try acting like the old way is in pain and you need to give it a rest.

So give your old ways a rest and look at life from another angle. You may think life is grand again and really enjoy what’s around you ; and the folks you disagreed with may be the folks you agree with after you roll over and see things from another angle.

Hire at will, right to work, and the lack of your rights.

19 Dec

If you are for freedoms such as freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and so on ; yet you do not want to get fired over those “freedoms”. Then I sure hope you are against the ” hire at will” and ” right to work” laws in this country. The ” hire at will” and ” right to work” laws give the employers the upper hand . In the states that have “hire at will” laws ( most do, but some have stronger laws) and “right to work” laws ( a strong republican backed law) , an employee can be fired for absolutely anything they say or do while on or off of the clock.

If you are upset over the firing of Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty and his interview in GQ (or anyone being fired over non-work issues), then I sure hope you are not in favor of the “hire at will law” and the “right to work law” ( his contract may also have a code of conduct clause in it). Those two laws put all of the power in the companies hands. Louisiana where Duck Dynasty is filmed is a right to work state (republican backed). If you are a die-hard American who loves his/her freedoms, then You need to be against the “hire at will” and ” right to work ” laws.

Republicans talk about the erosion of their ” freedoms” and are in favor of ” hire at will” and “right to work” laws, yet they are unable to connect the dots when it’s their ideology for more power to employers that’s taking away your freedoms ( you can not have it both ways). You may not think there’s a connection, but slow your role and look at what states have these laws, and hear the stories of why folks are fired from their jobs in those states. It’s not the liberal media or liberals agenda that’s “taking away freedoms” , it’s the republicans idea of having ” right to work laws”, and very strong ” hire at will laws”. Democrats are against the ” hire at will laws” and “right to work laws”.

I personally do not think I am losing my ” freedoms”. But I also understand that if I say something crazy, then there are repercussions, and that can include being let go from my job ; all because of these two laws I have talked about. So next time you think Americans are ” losing their freedoms” ; think about these two laws. Are you still in favor of them? If so , then you are not in favor of your ” freedoms”.

Be the tree, not the lawn mower.

As a child this is the house I grew up in. Taking these pictures brought back many memories. One of which I noticed that there are now 3 trees in the front yard and not just 1. I remember many hot summer days mowing that huge corner lot.  And having many ladies stop by just to visit me , NOT!!! I also remembering leaving the one tree alone, mowing around it. Can you guess which one? If you guess the one farthest from the house you are correct. When the other 2 would start to grow, I would go over it with the lawn mower as I would mow the grass.

If those 2 trees just gave into the lawn mower, they would not be alive today. But they kept on fighting and they came back bigger and stronger than the one that was left alone to grow. Those 2 trees should be an inspiration to humans who happen to be picked on or are told they are not good enough, or strong enough, or smart enough. If these 2 trees started crying or gave up after the first time the lawn mower cut them down, they would not be seen by anyone and I would not be writing this blog about INSPIRATION AND MOTIVATION.

Next time you or someone you know are being degraded by a human lawn mower, just tell them or yourself to be like a tree. If they look at you funny tell them this true story. Show them this blog or read it to them. Folks need to TREE UP AND GET A BACKBONE. You can be what you want in life, no matter what your age is or what is going on in your life.

Just think, that mower that cut those 2 trees down every time the grass was mowed, is now in some dump sight rusting away. All the while the 2 trees it cut down are now big and alive, all for everyone to see in their full monty.

We are family.

8 Nov

Have you ever known of a family whose parents are super nice and polite? Then you find out they have some children who act unruly and cause all kinds of havoc? Sometimes no matter how great of a parent one may be, the kids will be a menace to society. It’s in their DNA and they have a brain and conscious of their own.  You have some parents who are a complete mess and the kids grow up to be doctors. It goes both ways.

This is what I see in Washington D.C and politics. We now have a congress who are acting like those unruly kids, and the Whitehouse are the parents who try to do everything right. Everything the President says or does, the GOP, and tea-party do just the opposite to make things difficult. Its getting to be foreseen before it even happens ( it’s like known that the bad child will end up in prison ). The Whitehouse can only do so much. The GOP in Congress have it set in their head that they will do whatever they want, even if it ruins America.

Back before President Obama, congress was doing the right thing and life was okay. Congress acted like the future doctor, and the Whitehouse from 2001-2009 ( Bush-era ) acted like the messed up parents, who had no idea on how to be a parent.

Let’s send the GOP and tea-party to therapy ( vote them out in 2014 ) and adopt some good kids ( democrats), so we can be a family again. The ones who act right.

War on Christianity.

13 Oct

You hear from the Republican party ( who claim to be the party of family and christian values) that there is a war on Christianity. As a Liberal, I will have to agree with them. Anyone who would want programs cut or decimated to help the poor, elderly, children, and disabled are attacking the values and beliefs of a Christian.

Ask yourself this, Who would want such programs defunded or decimated? Take a look at who is writing up these bills to be voted on. It all goes back to those people who claim to be of christian and family values, the republicans. Any chance they get to cut cost on government spending, it’s all programs that help those that Jesus would say need the most help.

Who had the clause to shut down the government if they didn’t get their way? The republicans did this. They get to keep their gym on capital hill open, all the while cancer patients get turned away because there is a partial government shutdown. Republicans are also doing what the terrorists want done to this great country America. They are hurting the economy by shutting down parts of the government, not trying to get laws passed to have corporations send jobs back to America, and ignoring the cry of the poor, all the while helping those who need no help ( filthy rich).

Yes republicans you are right about a war on Christianity, and the republicans are the root cause of the war. Your political beliefs and core values are against all Christian beliefs, look in the mirror when you talk about a war on Christianity.
