AP Explains: Brownface part of racist face makeup history.

AP Explains: Brownface part of racist face makeup history. So says a so-called race and ethnic specialist on a race and ethnic team of the Associated Press who failed to give the white color people’s view on face makeup. There’s a monumental surge to demean white color people for dressing up as brown, red, or […]

WHY AMERICA FIRST?

World leaders lose their tempers when America says ‘America First’. In their minds America is saying that all other countries don’t matter, that they come second or third or way down on the ladder or nowhere on the ladder. Nobody respects a father or mother who puts outsiders first, rather than their own. Nobody on […]

The Party Of Pity (POP)

The democrats, upon failure to deliver on promises made to be broken anyway, morphed into the Party Of Pity (POP). They wallow as they mock those who dared to try a new way – one different enough to be called progressive – one that shakes the status quo, loosening past ideals that no longer work, […]

BOUNCING TYPOS

Correcting my typographic errors is tedious enough, since I make a lot of them. Typing is not my talent. One might think I’d be a lot better at it than I am, since I’ve been doing it for so many years. Some people can knit really well, and others can’t, no matter how long they do […]

Google Is Listening To You…

Or they’re allowing others to listen to you via your computer. Google automatically turns on my sound on my computer each time I go to a site that has a video anywhere on that site. There was no notification via email that they were now commandeering the sound control on my computer. That blue speaker […]

BIG ON COMPLAINTS SHORT ON SOLUTIONS

‘The majority rules’ doesn’t mean the majority is right. All systems are flawed. Democracy can satisfy fifty-one percent of the people, which leaves forty-nine percent disgruntled. Out of that fifty-one percent people still may not be satisfied within that group, since the final choice between two candidates often results in choosing the lesser of two […]

PEOPLE-EATING PEOPLE

What’s wrong with people? I live in a gay area, a Muslim area, an Irish, black, Hispanic area and on and on. I hear gays (men and women) using the ‘C’ word like they use any other word in their vocabulary – like most people say shit or damn or fuck you. If they’re mad […]

P.E.T.A – tasty vs tortured

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. PETA is the acronym. Some guy or gal on Facebook last night made a poster or something that wasn’t just words, for the purpose of showing the world some new words that fit that acronym. “People Eat Tasty Animals.” I came up with a better one that depicts […]

SLOW YOUR KNEE DOWN

Stop knee-jerking your way through life. Think before you write or speak. Every action with you is a knee-jerk reaction. Slow your knee down.

LET PREJUDICE DIE

I don’t care about history, I make up my own. I don’t have to reconcile my actions with somebody else’s long ago story. I lead my own life. I don’t let my tribe nor clan ancestors nor yours lead my life according to their long dead prejudices. Their prejudices die with them. They’re not supposed […]

“WE DON’T SERVE VEGANS”

A restaurant that does not have an animal-free vegan option, might as well have a sign posted out front: WE DON’T SERVE VEGANS. A restaurant that has only salad greens, oil and vinegar and/or plain white rice, might as well have a sign posted out front: WE DON’T SERVE VEGANS. That’s discrimination for being vegan […]

STARBUCKS IS PREJUDICIAL

I’ve never seen any old people working at Starbucks. One might think in all the places I’ve lived and Starbucks I’ve visited, I might have seen one. That’s ageism. How about instead of putting “old people matter” on their cups, they start a campaign to hire a few? ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight
