You ever read something someone wrote promoting a stereotype or contributing to more racism in the world?
You have to wonder how far back through generations does that ignorance go in their family?
Then you feel sad for their off-spring and any people they or their off-spring my encounter in their life unless they are educated somewhere down their life's journey.
That is why education is so vital. How else can we break the cycle otherwise. Hence why each of us needs to set an example, as you never know who you could influence. If everyone just quit being a total dick and falling into apathy - the world would be just that bit more tolerable.
An example can be set by NOT spreading more stereotypes and posting or making racist comments.
If one has not encountered every single person within an ethnic group (which is impossible to do), how can one make a general ignorant assumption about that entire group or even some? Maybe it's only the ones one has encountered. It just screams of IGNORANCE!
I'll post some random shit and then laugh when someone takes it personally.
There is always that one person who the shoe fits. LMAO!!!
Duhhh...every social media site makes money by, among other things, harvesting user data and sharing it with app developers and advertisers. Preventing those buyers from passing that data to third parties with ulterior motives may ultimately be impossible.
So I attempted to save time messaging family & friends by creating Group Messages. It's an option offered by Verizon Wireless.
However, a few issues occurred.
1. Once you create a Group Message, a message is automatically sent to the group notifying them that you created a Group Message, but this action is not made aware to the person that created the Group Message. WTF?!
2. The Group Recipients sees a (588) Area Code number that when Googled reflects a Mexico State Area Code. On the Sender's end, they only see their cell phone number and the numbers of the family and friends within that Group, but not that bogus (588). WTF?!
So I called Verizon and was told that the (588) Area Code Number is their Network Server assigning an ID# to the created Group. When I ask why a phone number listed as a Mexico phone number is being utilized, the Tech had no answer for me.
I deleted all my Groups after that.
WTF Verizon Wireless?
How come your lips don't touch when you say "touch", but they touch when you say "separate"?
I've heard this before but it was -- They don't touch when you say touch, but when you say seperate, they do touch.
What are they ?
I dont know the answer to yours bro.
The way someone worded the question as I posted it and the way you worded it are very much similar....lol
I don't think people really change. They just do a really good job at suppressing their core desires.
NEVER let the outside noise kill your inner peace. Negativity doesn't deserve your energy.
New parents learn quickly to be cautious of being pissed on when changing their baby's diaper. It's been a long time since I learn that lesson myself. So I must have forgotten that lesson when Bandit, who still has trouble with excitement and submissive urinating, decided to piss on my hand while I was attempting to change his waist-wrap. I turned him over onto his back to remove the waist wrap due to the way it had adjusted itself since he's a hyperactive puppy and he must have gotten nervous because that's when he pissed on my hand. It startled me and because I was startled, it startled him and he jumped up and ran into his sleeping area. I figured he may still have some in him so I just let him outside to handle his business.
Then to teach him that was NOT ok and he should not be nervous to lay on his back for a simple waist-wrap change, I had him come back into the house and go back to his sleeping area to calm down instead of having him participate in some playtime where he has me play fetch with him for about an hour before bed-time.
The next night I suppose he really missed playing fetch before bedtime since he didn't piss on me when I placed him on his back to see if he had learned to control his bladder. He had....And he wore himself out playing fetch...as usual. LOL!
I hate typing comments and then after I post it, I see not all the words made it. They got cut off. I mean what the fu
The word "Bitch" seems to be the Go-To word in 99.5% of the female-on-female fights in WSHH videos. LOL!
If you give me what you claim is your actual name on one profile and then communicate with me on one of probably many of your other profiles, don't expect me to know who you are. I don't keep track of members with multiple profiles. It's just not that serious to me....Sorry I'm Not Sorry. LOL!
Some eBay Sellers just make you wonder about their logic sometimes. Do they feel we are stupid or something? Why would I pay a $50.00 (USD) Shipping Fee for an item you are selling for $0.01 (USD)?
How about advertising the truth that you want $50.00 (USD) for your $20.00 (USD) item and shipping will cost less than $5.00 (USD). LOL!
Some People's Children I Tell Ya!
So I remember being a Nube on VR and having a guy Rate a 10 on my Portfolio and I actually messaged him and thanked him, but told him that I didn't swing that way....LMAO! I didn't know rating pages regardless of Gender was the thing to do. LOL!
Then I remember rating a page a '9' and receiving a reply from that member thanking me for the rate, but wondering what their page was missing that could increase my opinion of it to give it a '10'? I thought, dayum, people take this rating thing serious...So ever since then, I give nothing but '10's or nothing at all.
Then the 'Honor' system was implemented and I cracked up at that one. It was just another way to single out those you like and those you didn't beyond the down rates and blocks. Very entertaining, but I saw it as just another tool for Coven Wars!
Lastly, I keep reading about VR not being the same as it used to. Well, I remember back in the day when I first joined, I thought VR was like another site called 'Vampire Wars' due to the fact that Covens were routinely attacking other Covens on here. 1 Rates and Blocks were strategically given out weekly. I must admit, it was kinda fun and hilarious. Coven Masters were like Generals waging war. Then a truce would be called and the damage done to profiles would all be all reversed. However, some people were still salty and took those temporary rates and blocks personal. Those are the ones who ended up getting blinded by their CMs for not repairing the damage they did after a truce had been made between the Covens. So if anything, VR, to me, has just gone from drama on a larger scale to drama just between a few members here and there, but I still love it!
Whew! After all that, I know I'm going to sleep well tonight.
Well, time to do some yard work while also trying not to step in any of Bandit's Yard Deposits....lol
I'm back. I hate when my keyboard seems to have a delay.
Dayum! Pizza it is....
I love going to DHgate.com and then comparing their price to the same items being sold on eBay where the seller has jacked up the price by maybe $50 or more....So then I send a message to the seller asking if they 'Price Match' and I provide the price listed on DHgate and I provide a direct link to the same product their selling on eBay in the message.
No seller has yet to respond....LOL!!!
People who post comments and then remove them don't understand that stuff on the internet can be screen-shot and used against them later....LOL!
I mean how is this chick going to post to Twitter correcting someone's grammar while incorrectly using grammar herself?
So, did you get that notice from VR?
Yup, that was me sending you a message or maybe I commented on your journal post.
That's just me letting you know that at least one person is in the world reminding you that YOU MATTER. I validate your existence.
Now carry on..... (Hugs) for the females....(Fist Bumps) for the males. ^_^
Ohhhh...So now I get it. Usually, I'll go to the Journals and scroll down reading whatever catches my eye then click on it, but I could never find all the drama VR members keep referring to.
Then it dawned on me to go to the Honor and click on the Honor of those in the Bottom 10 and bam! There it all was.
Maybe every now and then it'll be funny to read all the shenanigans, but I don't think that could be a daily hobby of mine though.
Eh, I rather watch YouTube videos. More entertaining....LOL!
The US military offers very generous pension benefits—after 20 years of service, members can retire with 50% of their final salary for the rest of their lives. ...
Since that allows most to retire around age 40, the payouts may last for a very long time (and they are also adjusted for inflation).
Life in the military isn’t easy, but if you serve long enough the financial rewards, at least, are great.
Only one in five people take up this incredibly generous pension to retire around age 40.
I served for 24 years and retired at age 42.
The sacrifices I had to make, the toll it took on my body and the hardships, stress, blood, sweat, tears and ultimately internal lung injury I sustained due to the Iraq War as a result of inhaling toxic sand and dust and the negative physical & psychological effects from that....Well, it was still worth it........ to some degree.
Oh Mondays, how I love you. You make Retirement all the sweeter.
So Bandit's Vet was pleasantly surprised that I provide a number of options for Bandit when it comes to food.
I mean, who would want to eat the same thing every single day? I know I don't. So he gets different varieties of flavor from a variety of foods.
Who remembers this? And it's still going on....LOL!
PUTIN LASHES OUT AT OBAMA: "SHOW SOME PROOF OR SHUT UP"
No, my point wasn't that every "allegation" is made up. My point is there are "options" to stop unwanted attention beyond making allegations that can't be "proven".
In fact, making "allegations" that can't be proven will, in most cases, backfire on the alleged victim.
If the options offered on any Social Media Site have all been "first" exhausted, then seek Legal Counsel to see if you have a case.
Just don't think it will be either EASY or CHEAP so have your "PROOF" that the Rules or Law was indeed broken.
Best Wishes goes out to all the true victims of any form of actual Harassment as legally defined.
At its most basic legal definition, “cyber-stalking is a "repeated" course of conduct that’s aimed at a person designed to cause "emotional distress" and "fear of physical harm",” said Danielle Citron, a professor at the University of Maryland’s Francis King Carey School of Law. Citron is an expert in the area of cyber-stalking, and recently published the book called Hate Crimes in Cyberspace. Citron told me that cyber-stalking can include threats of violence (often sexual), spreading lies asserted as facts (like a person has herpes, a criminal record, or is a sexual predator), posting sensitive information online (whether that’s nude or compromising photos or social security numbers), and technological attacks (falsely shutting down a person’s social-media account). “Often, it’s a perfect storm of all these things,” she said.
"I was lucky. I deleted our contact history from my phone and blocked him. Case closed." ~ Jennifer Lawrence
"You'll see case after case where a woman was groped at work and the court will dismiss the case as a matter of law, finding that's not sexual harassment," Sperino says.
"The supervisor told the plaintiff, 'Hey handsome, come here and sit in my lap,' talked about raping the worker multiple times, talked about his genitals," among other, worse offenses, Sperino says. "The court dismissed the case."
Some judges downgrade an offense if the groping didn't result in direct skin contact. Or, if there is no proof the victim objected to the sexual advances.
Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that whenever there is mega news coverage of a Social Issue it seems to make it in some form to the Journals whether real or pretend?
Oh yes, some things are made up or blown way out of proportion just to chum the water for the drama sharks to come out and feed? LOL!
What will be the next topic?
Poverty (lacking access to food, clean water, and shelter)
Access to Health Care
Civil Rights (racism, sexism, Ageism)
Access to Education
I suppose that's why they call it a "Social" Site. ^_-
I don't follow all the drama, but when I do key in on something.....I make some popcorn.
So one of my online friends posted something vague in which I found hilarious. So I gave his post a 'like'.
Then his wife, who is also an online friend, informed me that the post was about her and she felt a sort of way when I 'liked'.
I told her I would have never known it was about her if she had never informed me. Doesn't mean I still would not have found it humorous, but out of respect for our friendship, I wouldn't have 'liked' it if I knew it was about her.
Couples who are upset with each other should keep their shit off of social media. It is open to comments and all sorts of opinions.
However, that's just my opinion. Do whatever the fuck you want to do! LOL!
Damn you Net Neutrality!!! Stop slowing down my streaming.
Oh the Journals.....Such source of Levity from time to time.
I once thought the character 'Hannibal Lecter' from the movie 'The Silence of the Lambs' was inspired by Ted Bundy, but later discovered Hannibal Lecter was based on an actual doctor in Mexico, a surgeon by the name of Alfredo Ballí Treviño.
One thing that never ceases to amaze me is how different and unique each of us are. We come from different cultures, ethnicities, have experienced different life events that have shaped and defined our lives. Our beliefs. Our mannerisms. Our ethics. Our personalities.
I remember while in the military having to take Culture Awareness Classes prior to deploying to foreign countries since as Americans, what is acceptable and second nature to us can be an insult and a grievance to those of that host nation.
When it comes to the internet, it is wise to keep in mind that we are not all the same. Social Sites bring together people from all walks of life who encounter personalities and beliefs foreign to their own which can be challenging for some.
For example, eating beef is something that many of us in the USA have grown up with and we think nothing of it, but in a country where Cows are sacred, well, they could encounter quite a bit of a Culture Shock seeing pictures of burgers being enjoyed.
So before one feels that someone has "purposely" insulted them by what someone has done or said on the internet, just remember that YOUR reality is not THEIR reality and as long as they are not breaking any of the sites rules or laws in which that site must adhere to, then one has a few options.....Learn, Accept, Become Tolerant, or Block and no longer socialize with that individual.
It just isn't rocket science.
The way I see it, the internet is a tool to be used to explore that which many may not have the opportunity to personally experience. It is only a matter of time when one's reality clashes with another's.
Maturity is how one handles differences when one encounters them.
What is Goth?
"Put simply, a Goth is someone who finds beauty in things others consider dark. They love all that is dark and mysterious. That doesn't mean Goths are evil, it just means they have a different perspective to many. And it also doesn't mean Goths are unkind, violent or lacking in humor, in fact quite the opposite is true. Goths love to laugh but their humor is more of the black comedy sort. They aren't sad because they like dark things - dark things make them happy and inspire them. Goths are often intelligent, romantic and artistic realists. Being Goth is not about how one dresses. Most of what you can find written about Goth is that it was something that was born out of the Punk movement in the late 70’s and that most Goths wear black. I disagree. Goth isn’t something that was created in the 70’s because it always was." ~ http://www.whatisgoth.com/
"Actions Speak Louder Than Words. People say things and make promises they have no intention of keeping on a daily basis. You can tell someone you love him or her as many times as you want, but until your behavior coincides with that, the other person will probably not believe you." ~ Ashley Fern

I find most people don't take action when they feel they have been wronged because they need drama in their life for the sake of drama and attempting to get people on THEIR side like drama is some sort of spectator sport. Why participate in the game if you don't enjoy it on some level?

Maybe it's just me, but I rather focus my energy on continuously improving ME. There is enough Negative Energy in the world for me to contribute more.

Wait, What?! LMAO!!!
Facebook user data given to a 3rd Party....LOL!
As I alluded to before, if you think your User Profile and User Data aren't being sold or collected by a 2nd Party and given or sold to other people....Wake Up!
Even social sites you pay to be on still sell your data. It's how money is generated. Social Sites aren't made just for pure user enjoyment. It's a money generating machine for Marketing Brands and Social & Psychology Research entities, just to name a few, who are willing to pay to tap into social sites that have collected a wealth of User Data on it's Users.
The Spirit Of The Universe has granted me yet another day of life. I suppose he enjoys my shenanigans as well. LOL!
That is the way I look at each day I am given.... I start to think I must be good entertainment for Creator cos he not yanked me out yet... Like he sits down with a bowl of popcorn and says ' well let me see what that crazy injun sean does today.' LOL I am Creators #1 Reality show he likes to watch.
So I kept getting lent and residue on my clothes after washing them using the 'Quick Wash' option. So I opened my washer up from the back and looked around for anything that may have appeared clogged. Even removed one of the hoses and ran water through it. Nothing!
Because getting to the hose had me bending my wrist at an odd angle, I haphazardly reattached it and knew as soon as I did it, there was a high chance of something going wrong and I'll find my Mud Room flooded.
Yup, the hose came off and water spread out over the floor, but I was able to reduce the mess with towels.
I reattached the hose, but better this time and dried the floor. Found where a chunk of soaked lent was trapped by an outlet for the water within the washing machine and cleared that out. I also found my user manual and read what could be causing it and the recommended preventive actions.
Finished the laundry and all went well.
Now let's see if I wait another 3 months to put my clean clothes away....LOL!
Another gloomy rainy day.......I likes!!! ^_^
I fell asleep at 5 p.m......Woke up one minute to midnight.....Wow!
Oh wait, nope, it was only one minute to 11 p.m. Man, I must still be high. lol
This is something I posted after seeing a YouTube video where the content provider asked subscribers for their thoughts on a person telling them that they didn't want to be their friend anymore because they felt the YouTuber was a distraction. The other person was very attracted to this YouTuber, but wasn't willing to take things slow as the YouTuber wanted even though it seemed they both were into each other.
I feel it's very important to share your "expectations" of a potential intimate partner and of a relationship with that person if and when it reaches that level. The worst thing to do is "deceive" someone into believing you are what they are looking for and they are what you are looking for in an intimate partner and then switching up once you have them/they have you. By being up front, no one can say they didn't know. Often times relationships go wrong because of those unspoken expectations that aren't being met.
The best advice I've always lived by is just to always be yourself, love yourself, love your life and someone in the same communities you feel you belong to (e.g., fashion community, interior decorating community, religious community, etc., etc.) will see you enjoying your life so much to the point that they will naturally want to find out what's making you so happy.
If they are truly compatible with you, all else is just a series of compromises. Bringing two souls shaped by years of experiences, life choices & lessons learned, together can be a little challenging to sustain beyond the initial infatuation stage, but open and honest communication will help smooth out the rough edges. However, the foundation of letting people know what your expectations are, what you are looking for in the beginning stage once you have determined that person has a chance to leave out the Friend Zone is very important and will save a lot of time and heartache. If you are not what they are looking for in an intimate partner, then that should be ok. Being kept as a friend is ok too, but sometimes people just can't be friends with someone if there is no chance of them one day becoming much more and that too is ok and their Choice which should be respected. True, it's difficult to hear, "We can't be friends if we can't be lovers", but respect that that's what they are searching for and respect that you can't display a whole meal including a drink in front of someone who is starving and thirsty while telling them they can't enjoy it. It's not fair to them.
If you are the type that becomes friends first and is slow to allow a person out of the Friend Zone to become more, that's something you make known to a potential friend who is still at the 'Acquaintance' level, but shows signs of wanting to become a 'Friend or Close Friend'.
As far as how long it takes to meet that special someone...Well, that's the unknown that no one can predict. Just be patient and do you in the meantime.
I'm saving up to undergo sclera tattooing (tattooing the white of the eye) in a solid black color. Trying to get the person who claims to have invented the procedure, Luna Cobra, to perform the procedure.
I'm sure it will be a life-transforming experience....One way or the other.
If a person ever found themselves having to choose between Me and Someone Else.... AFTER...they said I was theirs.....Please Do Not Choose Me.
Because if YOU were truly mine....There would have never been another Option.
I've known people who hooked-up with a person and agreed to be in an intimate relationship with that person "exclusively" and then after a few disagreements, they start questioning their choice. While they are "considering" living life without their current pick, they meet someone else and find they have sooo much in common. They are sooo more compatible than their current choice. They may even go as far as to have sex with this other person and may or may not try to blame their actions on a number of things (i.e., alcohol, drugs, loneliness, etc, etc.) but hey, they made a CHOICE to CHEAT and at the time didn't really care about any repercussions. If they have time to remove clothing or give access to their genitalia to someone else, they have time to think about what they are doing.
I tell any female I'm with, that if at any point in our relationship they find themselves wanting to fuck someone else or developing emotional feelings for someone else, just break up with me...Go get their fuck on...and then deal with all that post break-up emotions afterward. Why CHEAT? I'll be just fine because they are not the type of person I want in my life anyway.
I watch this YouTube video where this chick confessed that if she's no longer feeling the person she's with, she purposely sabotages the relationship to make the guy break up with her because she really can't stand breaking someone's heart by being the one to end the relationship.....WTF?!
Sitting wondering if I should drive to the local fast food joint and cop something. I'm not starving, but I could eat something. I have pizza in the fridge, but I'm not feeling that right now. I know, I know, First World Problems.
"Upon request, we provide site visitors with access to "no" information that we have "collected" and that we "maintain" about them."
So if I asked what information has been collected about me, I wouldn't get it. Eh!
That's ok. I'm sure among my 'Online Profile' created by all the sites I frequent at least among all the data they may have stored that may be sold or provided to 'Data Purchasers' somewhere among all the 'Key Words' is the word.....AWESOME!!!! ^_-
"Plausible Deniability" - is the ability of people (typically senior officials in a formal or informal chain of command) to deny knowledge of or responsibility for any damnable actions committed by others in an organizational hierarchy because of a lack of evidence that can confirm their participation, even if they were personally involved in or at least willfully ignorant of the actions. In the case that illegal or otherwise disreputable and unpopular activities become public, high-ranking officials may deny any awareness of such acts to insulate themselves and shift blame onto the agents who carried out the acts, as they are confident that their doubters will be unable to prove otherwise. The lack of evidence to the contrary ostensibly makes the denial plausible, that is, credible, although sometimes it merely makes it unactionable. The term typically implies forethought, such as intentionally setting up the conditions to plausibly avoid responsibility for one's (future) actions or knowledge. In some organizations, legal doctrines such as command responsibility exist to hold major parties responsible for the actions of subordinates involved in heinous acts and nullify any legal protection that their denial of involvement would carry.
Reminds me of the movie 'Independence Day'....
President Thomas J. Whitmore: (Seeing Area 51 for the 1st time) "My God, why the hell wasn't I told about this place?"
Secretary of Defense Albert Nimzicki: "Two words Mr. President, Plausible Deniability".
One of the realist scenes in the movie....
Sometimes they knew, but is confident that nothing will ever be tied back to them.
Sometimes they just didn't know.
Allegations - a claim or assertion that someone has done something illegal or wrong, typically one made "without" proof.
Some say one is Innocent until proven Guilty. However, in some societies, one is Guilty until proven Innocent.
I love when people make an allegation and say they have "receipts" to prove it. I say, "Hell yeah, let's see those receipts".
Fuck all the He Said, She Said......Prove It!
If one's allegations can't be proved, then all they can do is hope those they've never lied to believe their allegation. I'm sure they will find some comfort in that.
However, if a lot of people are making the same allegations about someone else, but all of them have no proof, that may or may not sway public opinion, but can still do damage to the accused character unless the person being accused can turn around and have society question the integrity of those making allegations by proving themselves that those individuals have a history of being caught lying and/or prove that there is some sort of conspiracy to tarnish the character of the accused for some reason.
If one has a proven history of lying.....Their allegations, even if true, holds little weight. I call this the 'Cry Wolf Syndrome' in reference to the story of the little boy who cried wolf too many times.
One positive thing that comes from allegations that are actually true, but can't be proven is that moving forward, there will now be a cloud of suspicion hanging over that perpetrator's head and Karma will catch up to them and someone will then finally be able to prove the perpetrator's misdeeds vindicating all the previous accusers that couldn't prove their allegations, if the ones with a history of lying....Maybe....
I agree with you 100 % , very well said and thanks for posting this. Seems most of these allegations are coming from newbies and they are out to cause unnecessary drama .
@ Kahoali....Thank you. However, if you are referring to specific allegations made here on VR towards a member, I really don't keep track of them. My post was my thoughts on allegations in general. From the Bill Cosby drama to the "MeToo" movement, to the beefing going on between California and the Trump Administration, the Legal System, the Court of Public Opinion....and More! ^_^
I may not keep track with the VR drama and allegations being made among members, but I do see them when giving Honor and I may even catch a glimpse while reading Journals, but nope...Too many people with multiple profiles to try to keep track of who's beefing with whom. I mean, you can have one person with two different profiles pretending to beef with each other and it's just one person beefing with themselves for whatever reason. Maybe it brings them joy or they love the attention. Who knows....LOL!
I was referring to the ones here but I can also agree any allegation without proof is lame and it sickens me that it seems to be getting worse , every time you turn on the TV .
@ Kahoali, I agree. I want to yell, "Prove Your Shit". Sadly, there are some smart ones that will do some negative shit when they are confident that their victim won't be able to prove anything or not leave a jury with 'Reasonable Doubt'. That leaves it up to Krama.
As far as TV....I stopped watching that Programming Tool long ago. The Internet is, in a way, making them almost obsolete. I use one by connecting my laptop to my Big Screen TV and watch live streaming shows and movies and other content that Big Cble charges high fees to stream to our TV. I say cut out the middle guy while also customizing what you want to see via the Internet for a wayyyy lower monthly fee for their service.
Today I celebrate Bandit's 2-Year Adoption Anniversary.
I adopted him back on a Wednesday, 3/9/2016. He was only 4 months old.
He has brought my life Happiness & Love ever since.
I love my Puppy-Dog.
The Fuckery Continues From Programmed Ignorant People.....
Racist chants caught on camera at university
A Florida teacher tells his class not to date African-Americans 'because they are not worth it'.
Fear Leads To Anger
Anger Leads To Hate
Hate Leads To Suffering
Basically RACIST people are just people who have a lot of FEAR
I remember back in 1988 meeting a Caucasian Female who confessed to me that where she was born and lived her entire life until joining the military she had NEVER actually come into physical contact with someone not of her own Ethnicity. That all she knew about African-Americans, for example, is what she saw on the News. That once she had the opportunity to actually meet and get to know an African-American, she realized that the News and even her own Parents & Friends had been actually lying to her and trying to enforce the stereotypes that they had been taught themselves from their family and friends. She had also been told that African-Americans hate ALL Caucasians due to the enslavement of their ancestors and would seek to do her harm at the first chance they got just because of the color of her skin..... Wow!!! Ain't that a bitch?!
Where does the irrational hate of black people come from? Well, maybe this article explains it.
Here is just a little of what it says:
The United States became extremely wealthy largely because of slave labor. When slavery ended, promises made to ex-slaves were often broken. Former slave masters realized knew they weren’t being just, but they were angry that they had lost an easy path to prosperity. The fear at the time was that black people in sheer numbers could turn violent and kill white people out of revenge.
How do you overcome that? Reduce or eliminate the rights they are supposed to have in order to reduce the ease in which a rebellion can be facilitated.
How did this happen:
- Make it more difficult for black people to vote.
- Segregation, legal or otherwise, which still goes on today to a lesser degree. School in typically black neighborhoods are underfunded because of the way schools are funded.
- Discredit black social movements that are bringing about real social change (Black Panthers, BLM).
- Make financing more difficult blacks thereby making things like home ownership and entrepreneurship a greater challenge for the black population.
- Portray negative stereotypes in the media. People from areas where not many blacks live will have only these images to base their opinions of black people on. Blacks meeting people from these areas will have to work harder to overcome stereotypes.
- These are processes that have hinder black people from advancing to their full potential in the United States.
In the process, it has given opponents (enemies) of black progress strong proof that blacks are inferior. For example,
- If blacks cared, they would come out an vote.
- Blacks are less likely to own homes.
- Blacks are more likely to be in prison.
- Blacks always play the race card.
- The media shows the truth (did you see the facts above?)
All of this is without going into some of the more heinous examples of actions against blacks in America.
Sadly, as long as IGNORANCE is passed on from one Generation to the next, Racism & Fear will never completely die out, but at least those that are Brave will actually be open to finding out the truth for themselves like the female I met and became friends with and pass on that truth to their kids, family members and friends to reduce the number of IGNORANT people in the world even though it's VERY difficult to change the beliefs of an individual who has been programmed to believe something since BIRTH and who may have had their negative sterotypical beliefs reenforced by the negative actions of the FIRST person they ever met from another Ethnic Group who too may have done whatever they did because they too have FEAR and are RACIST.
So, when meeting people of different Ethnicities, think of yourself as being an Ambassador (Representative) of your Ethnic Group(s) and don't be an Asshole Coward.
Wow! What a coincidence...
Me: So, just curious, why don't you journal?
Her: Because unless I make it private to just me, anyone and everyone can read what I have written to be read just within this Community.
Me: Well, true, but anything you post on the internet has the potential of being viewed by anyone and everyone on the internet. You ever heard of 'Copying & Pasting' to another social site or having something screen-shot and posted to another site?
Her: And that's yet another reason why I don't journal or post in my Coven. I just read stuff and if I choose to post to the internet, at least it's my personal choice and not a set condition of the site. I also read small print policies.
Me: Awesome! Since most sites capture a computer's IP Addresses which can be traced back to a probable user's identification, I feel one gives up a level of privacy just by choosing to utilize the internet at all. I mean, have you ever posted something or conducted an online search and then get random ads about whatever you posted about or searched for? Everybody is selling user data to some degree.
I was always curious about this....
