As you can see this subject have taken a tole on me.  It have me wondering,searching for answer.  It is to me it is hard to get my mind rapped around how people that have no ideal about a person could hate or just don't like them because of who or what they have choose to do with their lives.  Understand of other can and would cure all of this curiosity.

As a child I would tell my mom I don't like a certain food and she would ask me how do you know you don't like it have you eaten it before? The answer was no, what I should have said was I didn't like the way it looked, therefore I didn't like it.  Her answer was taste it first and then if you don't like it you let me know.  Usually I found that it was good and ate it looking for more, this is the same with people, once you get to know someone you just might find yourself liking that person or community.

We can not meet each other living in different place yet in the same States, something to me is wrong with this picture.  Communities should be mixed with all people respective of their color creed sexual orientation. This still do not answer where did all this hate come from and why.  I have been thinking about this for the longest of time you see to me things do not just happened, there must be a cause and there is one even to this age old problem.

There are more people claiming to be religious living in this country than any were else in the world (the Belief of God) Say what, yes and this is where it all began from our reading of the Bible and not getting understanding or use the spiritual gift we all have.  

After the Flood Noel Got drunk off win and was naked his younger looked up on him which with out covering him, his two oldest son covered him walking backward pulling the covers over his nakedness, the next day Noel cussed his youngest son and his family, the it never was said or implied what the curse was or entailed, but that do not stop man from guessing and putting his ideals to work on what it was.

Ask any white person or some blacks and they will tell you that the curse was that Noel curse was to make all of his children and their children black, did you get that? Therefore being black was the curse, nobody never though about asking if that is true and since everything began in Africa how wouldn't that have been a blessing?  I mean back then just as it is now colored people out number the whites, so why would that curse be considered at all. Abra (Abraham called later) had to be of color he lived in the desert in a tent.  So that story do not wash with me and it shouldn't you either, if you are a free thinker.

Slavery was not as it was here in the United States, yet it was based upon the Good Book, nobody was kidnapped and put into slavery, in those days one put themselves into servitude because they was poor and more than likely could not pay what was borrowed, parent in order for the family of the poor to live would put their children in servitude to survive pay off that which was borrowed or they was captured in a war and made services even then God left strict rules on how they were suppose to be treated.  There were nobody better than the other or hated someone because of who or what they  were.  As for the Gay's God said of some of them they are my servant leave them along.  Who are we to judge, who are we to hate who are we to be unforgiving.  No matter how much money you have it will not give you life, it will not guarantee you a seat at the head of the Table of life.  When your time comes you will answer you will just like that poor man die and be no-more, explain to me again how great you are because you can afford worldly goods you can not buy life.

Why can't we all become community orientated living together working together for the in-betterment of man kind by accomplishment of getting to know each other knowing and feeling for   each other loving and caring for each other not because they are our white or colored neighbor but because they are human and humans should love each other one is no better than the other we all live we all die, so why not make our living mean something other than hate prejudice or murdering treat all as if we all are a gift to each other we are you know, we are you know. 

Next the Discussion on our Black youth and why are the killing each other who is the blame for that?

One of the things that use to bother me most was how could anybody by just looking at a person without knowing them decide that they hate another person, because of looks color or they are from a different country.

I've learned a little about this and found it is nothing new, it about how some was taught, children do not enter this would being prejudice nor hating it would have to be taught or something in their lives happened when growing up that influence this way of thinking.

The very young are impressive and they are sometimes easily  mislead and there those who are willing to help them along with beliefs that was not taught in the home. 

Prejudice began way back when it's done to control others by those who have something to loose.  The Rich Plantations owners who may or may not have lived in the old southern states, but not to put this totally on the South lets think yes prejudice is every where even in the Northern States always have been.  The North have a way of hiding their prejudice and hate of another.

To keep the Rich from the commoners they had to devise a  way to keep themselves above the communities this was done by a very smart way and even today nobody seems to have figured it out here is the big ideal (still used today) division in the communities. 

This was a way of keeping the slaves in check by hiring overseers and allowing telling the White slaves how much greater they were over the blacks, remember the Blacks spoke no English and therefore the Rich decided that since they was could not master the English Language they could not be taught. The poor Whites was angry and just as today with the Hispanics thought the Blacks was at fought because jobs for them was hard to find, who would hire anybody when they received free laborer.   Some managed to purchase slaves for themselves, maybe one or two these were what we call today Middle Class of people. 

I remember reading a book where a couple sold their possession to purchase one slave to help them to work their fields, Cotton was a big comate in those days the Southern Rich man was smart by keeping division between the Black Slaves and the White Slaves they were able to kept them apart same as it is today.  They also kept the poor and Middle Class of  people in  the communities fighting against each other separation and division can win a war.

After the Slavery was over Jim Crow Laws took over now these set of people were the poor Whites and they ruled the Black by burning shoot hanging just because they were the dominate.  Prejudice and Hate of Blacks prevailed for a long time.  They had a way of keeping the Black man down by putting the Black woman as head of their House Hole because she could work as a maid or nanny to their children.  Blacks were not allowed to walk on the same side of the street as a White and no Black man should look at a White Woman in any kinds of way. 

The word for the Black Man was boy this was a sociological way of keeping the Black Man in his place in other words he was not considered a Man in the eye site of the the White Man and his words to them was no sire and yes sire instead of Master after Slavery.  Whites was the dominance one he ruled and the Rich saw to it that they kept that division where it is today.

Today is different in the since that now the White are no longer demoniac and this is not   pleasing to some.  So much that they can not see that if the joined the rest of the poor and middle class of people instead of hating and being prejudice that we could win this war on man kind, other countries who never had what they now enjoys knows this but American have yet to learn that we all are human and we all under the skin are the same.  The rich now purchases which once was We the People's they now buy our Representatives and Senators unless we the OTHERS learn to stop fighting us and start fighting the ones who have a  bigger stake in this war against the 99% we will win.  As long as these rich men and women can put it in  some head that they are better that they should be the head of all things in America and all the while the rich is cutting them us into behind our backs they keep up this division between the Middle Class and the Poor because as long as we are fighting among ourselves nobody is noticing how they are using us to gain more power. 

This is not based up on  any book Television show just observation  of mine.

Good day to all I am a reader and listener of news and what is taking place around me.  This Blog is about my thoughts on different subjects each of them may or may not relate to the other  so with that let me get started:

The big scandal of to day is IRS, nothing new here we the taxpayer pray each year that we don't get audited.  Lets face it no matter how Congress put it, the IRS should have investigated the Tea Party's application for not-for Profits Organization one may say but it was bias maybe but it was because so many of them with the same name attached to it that brought the IRS attention to it, I agree that others should have been targeted like Carol Rove's organization accepting money under the covers of none named donator su-special in my opinion a simple yes.

I would also say that the IRS over reached by not including other Organization in their investigation lord knows there are plenty of them that are out there.  We the people know this but others ignores it.  

Let's take some of the Big Churches who collects billion of dollars, yet they have no taxes yet they participate in our public affairs by participating in Governmental affairs. This is part of the Tea Party we know this by the Evangelical stance bu what they have publicly disclosed they are under the ideal that the States are based up on the Bible therefore making the United States a Christian state, the  Tea Party thinks the same way they bring their belief , Their ideals is simply to take the Country back to a time when Whites was the dominic race of  people.

President Obama, is not the King of the United States of America he is a President which is a big difference I read every day where someone are complying about how he have not kept his promises on certain things that he promise in his speeches let's remind them that in order for him to carry out his ideals Congress must approve them.  This Congress is made up of Tea Party types, these people do not care about what their constituencies think or want most owe their allegiance to their benefactor, not the American People.  They do not care about we the people they do not love  America at all.

President Obama on war, in 2014 the Afghanistan war will be over, as he stated all wars must come to an end, my thoughts exactly as a matter of fact they should have ended with the Bush Administration in my opinion we should have not evaded Iraq or Afghanistan we should have only went after the mastermind behind the attack of 9/11 and his allies. But since we didn't after the killing and taking out certain heads of Al Qaeda we should call this way to end. Yet not take our eyes off of the terrorist groups that is out to harm America we must also monitor the activity of those here that have sympathy for the terous and they want to harm us as well homegrown terrorism is our new normal sad but it is true.    

This ends my thoughts on some of the things that are taking place on the news and the Huffington Post which I get most of my information from.  I really have more but I will save it until next time. Please give me your thoughts on todays news. Here and around the world, I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Some times life begins to start and stop, nothing new just feelings of let down.  Did I ever tell you about what goes around comes around, watch how you treat or talk to others.  It is never just about you and yours others are in your life too, perhaps you don't like it but they are there what can you do?

You can choose your friends but family well it is not left up to you and they are not you same mother and father different people.  Me I hear this a lot, you allow others make a fool out of you or you can't take care of everybody.  Stop listing to others said life or what they have to say, yet in that same breath I hear I love my daughter son, there is nothing I wouldn't do for them.  Oh I have another one in raising children you have to have tough love you are to soft on them they run all over you.

Thanks for the advice, but when I need a friend (some one close to me) to talk to I have to talk to the cat :) uh let;s get on with this I have been here long enough to know that living in this world along is not possible yes there are some who may think I am all those things I just mention, but after knowing and being with me I thought you knew me by now.  guess I was wrong,

Here is another old saying, if you have two, tree or more children, don't count on one person or think to your self that he or she will be the one there for me when I need somebody that just may not be the one or none so don't count on that don't count on anyone of them listing to you if you just want to talk, ups got to go nobody want to listen what do we do as parent of adult children, even if we are busy or just don't feel like listing (you know the feelings) we stop and listen uh no don't offer any advice because you don't know anything just listen.

Our adult children dumps on us everyday, but we don't mind because to a mother we are interested in their well being now just as we did when they were babies.  Wouldn't it be wonderful if one of them sat and listing as you  rant and rave about your disappointment or happiness or just ranting to hear yourself talk and they had the time to at least interested.

I had nothing to give my children (still don't) so I gave them each a part of me, I shared myself with them I have never been selfish or self absorbed not even to those who was not friends, I was brought up during the times when a neighbor was a friend and looked out for each other.  When if you needed a place to lay your head for a couple of days your neighbor would allow you to sleep on the couch or on their back porch, I was even brought up during the times neighbors did not lock their doors as a matter of fact food was left if out for any stranger who came along and was hungry could eat.

I was bought up  to believe that once you was a mother you remain so until death due you apart.  I was raised by a single parent a mother who was not to much older than I am, she was my friend the one I could spill my heart to and we talked together long into the nights.  She have Alzheimer's now so I have no one any more,  My sister and I aren't that close, we talk but I have found that if you talk to some people just carrying on a personal conversation and it is about a spouse or a child, people takes it the wrong way.  Mom and I was able to discern what was suppose to effect the other and which was not.  We grew up  together she and I learned together cried laugh I thank God for giving her to me.

I am in the process of making sure that I can get to visit her more often I hate asking or bothering others about their cars taking me from place to place, yet some have used my car, oh it's just me I am growing  old now and I am not able to do the things that I once did like catch the bus or walk you see my best friend gave birth to me along, nobody was there at my  birth just her and me.  Which may or may not have cause me to be  born with C.P. Cerebral  palsy I am not complaining about that, it's just the way it is.

So lets talk lets go back to remembrance land and chat up a storm, I'll tell you what it is like being me and a few personal things after getting to know you and you do the same with me. Ha got to go now I am looking for that talk By for Now
@Russell It's A Family Affair, be seeing you.
