Tricks Are For Kids
I haven't blogged in a few months for various reasons. However, today I felt like exercising my rights to freedom of speech. Does anyone remember back in 2011 of May when I wrote this topic? I was reminded of it when Clint Eastwood spoke at the RNC and illustrated my point regarding the President being invisible to them when he spoke to an invisible President in an empty chair.
Did Clint call the President Mr.? I guess calling him Mr. Obama instead of boy is what the Republicans consider progress. Those on the right have a very bad habit of addressing him as Obama and Mr. Nevertheless, it is so disrespectful that those folks on the right insist on not addressing him as President Obama or Mr. President as they did all of the Presidents before him who were white. After all, he does hold the highest office in America and whether they like it or not he is America's Commander in Chief and President.
For the last few months, I've been keeping up with the Trayvon Martin case. His case is just as important right now as the coming elections. The reason being that if Zimmerman gets away with his cold blooded act of murder, it sets the stage for copycats to surely follow and innocent young black males to be labeled thug as an excuse to kill them at random and get away with it. All black males are not thugs. Neither was Trayvon!
Nevertheless, check out the video above that is a reenactment with a written argument following each scene which; challenges everything Zimmerman claims and then check out this one too.
BTW, First Lady Michelle Obama gave an excellent speech last night. And Lily Ledbetter gave a heartfelt speech that was moving as well. All of the speeches given last night were great! One thing Mitt Romney did right was picking his VP. Yep, they're a perfect match because both of them are skilled in lying and revisionist.
Anyway, stay tuned, I'm not promising topics on a regular basis because I've been babysitting my two year old great-granddaughter who is full of energy and wears me out by the end of the day. Yet, she is a bundle of joy and I enjoy watching her grow.

Questions From A Black Woman's Journey
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
