moving/ anti-racism page


thanks thanks to ye who prayed... Ben and I are meeting John Gould at 9:00 this Thursday, he's very open to having a couple stay with him so it all looks good! He seemed a little nervous when I talked to him on the phone -- perhaps because he's shy or perhaps because we're white. We'll find out Thursday... I'm happy.

Sylvia is in the shop... I'm prayin' that her problems are cheaply fixable! *fidget*

And ......drumroll....... I started a new page on anti-racism. Right now it is just an essay on my feelings about racism... which I might post... but I'll be working more on it tomorrow, gathering links and info and such.

feelings: powerful

Ah, screw my comment asking if the prayer helped, I should've read this entry first O:)

And I... LOVE... the page... AND the graphics! I'm going to be posting one up soon, as soon as I'm done getting through all my damned mail and entries and whatnot.

Anyway, I hope you're having a maaaaaaarvelous day today :)

*applaudes* Herb--an African-American co-worker and friend o' mine--actually had this same discussion at Subway the other day. (Since Farina left he's been my partner in early-morning crime and it's a been a blast! I kinda envy his girlfriend...)

Race is a social costruct--not a biological principle (my Human Species teacher went to great lengths to indiputably lay that one out for us!). And the stupid resulting prejudices have caused nothing but trouble for the human race; we've even cordoned off the bloody gene pool and that's not at all right, as I'm pretty sure God intended for our genes to mix freely. (And before anyone tries to refute that, take a damn good look at Halle Berry or any other "multi-racial" person.) "United we stand; divided we fall" counts for every aspect of human life, and the sooner we realize that the sooner the world will be a happier place. Anyway, for now.

Hm. I never thought about cordoning off the gene pool-- but you are so right! Mixed race people are all so pretty! I can't think of any that aren't.... *goes to ponder the new insight*
