I wonder if culture is somehow written into our DNA, due to its repetitive nature? I hope not.
I wonder if Spanish speaking people claimed minority status in their countries and Islands of origin, when they or their families lived there? The Spanish speaking people from Mexico, Central America, South America who come to America, did they also claim minority status in the countries they left? Did current black African immigrants claim minority […]
ONE LAND ONE PEOPLE? ONE WORLD. ONE LANGUAGE? The British use a lazy form of English. When I watch British films I use subtitles. I can’t understand what they’re saying and it’s not only me, Steve can’t either. Our own language has become foreign language to us. Why do they give everyone and everything nicknames? […]
TRANSGENDER QUESTIONS. Using an outwardly female as an example: If a man is trapped inside a woman’s body and then takes male hormones to become more like a man, what happens to the brain that told the body it didn’t fit the gender it looked like? Do hormones change the perception of one’s body along […]
You kick my people; I kick your people. You respect my people; I respect your people. “The adjective ethnic relates to large groups of people who have certain racial, cultural, religious, or other traits in common.” vocabulary.com Someone in Hollywood long ago came up with a rule for entertainment that generalized to all societies, given […]
“You always hurt the ones you love”, I heard grown ups say while I was growing in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s – yeah it took me a while. Actually, truth be told I was born grown up, I just didn’t know it, so I kept growing thinking that’s what I was supposed to do. Although […]
I wonder why people speak of nature as if they’re not part of it?
People who want to be asked as a precondition want something in return – usually, not always. Governments use it when another government is in trouble. “All they have to do is ask” means you’ll either be perceived as begging or if helped with the problem the giver of the gift will expect compensation of […]
Once you live outside the law and there are enough of you doing the same, a country within a country is formed, not a culture existing among many cultures. Isolation is the cause. Once outside the law it becomes easier and acceptable to commit other crimes, using as justification their illegal status. It just feels […]
Money doesn’t make you smart, neither do good looks or fame. Some of the most ignorant people are rich, famous and easy to look at. Till they open their mouths, and I wonder how they got that way. What a waste. People In Wasteland – barren – devoid of substance – shallow.
My hands look the same. One is right, one is left. Although they look the same, they don’t act the same and they both can’t perform the same functions equally well. They are not equally proficient. One is dominant and the other functions in a more supportive role. You hold a piece of fabric with […]
If I’m smart, that doesn’t make you dumb. If you’re smart, it doesn’t make me dumb. Why do people do that, looking for attention, oh you think you’re so smart, I must be the dumb one? Why does there have to be a dumb one? You’re not the only smart one in the room or […]
Somehow when we say modern slavery rather than slavery, it takes the sting away from the horror and the condition. The same is so when we refer to slavery-like practices instead of calling it what it is – slavery. I’m wondering why we do this? Some slavery is worse than other slavery? Or some people […]
The fact that many Asian countries still use chopsticks when more efficient eating utensils are widely available, tells you a lot about the mind-set of the populace of those respective countries. Slow to change old ways – even when they’re no longer efficient. I wonder how long it will take to convert? A scary thought. […]
Why all the burning lights in the sky? For what purpose do they shine? Rocks do that? But what set the rock on fire to burn forever till it dies to dust once again? I don’t want your foot in the sky, okay?
Christianity is expressed through many denominations. Why don’t we see that with Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam? If all these other religions have multiple denominations, then why don’t we hear more about them?
Why can’t we stay in the present, instead of going back to the past to justify our bad habits for the purpose of holding onto them? Bad habits die slow, when you won’t let them die.
You can’t make an animal taste and texture like a plant, but you can make a plant taste and texture like an animal. I wonder what that means? ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight
There’s something about the silence of humanity in the wilderness that soothes and invigorates simultaneously the human soul. I don’t think it’s the same for the other animals who reside and thrive (or not) in that same wilderness. I wonder where they go to be soothed and invigorated simultaneously?
The world has seen enough of gruesome acts of torture and slaughter – human against human – on television to last the world many life times. What you wanted to make acceptable to the human psyche via film, so that you could continue torturing backfired. It is well-documented and common knowledge that humans copy behavior. […]
Gross, disproportionate, profound suffering always exist under conditions of occupation. Poles – Auschwitz Concentration Camp Soviet Red Army liberated camp 27 January 1945 I wonder how long it would have taken Hitler and the Jews to reach an amicable, mutually beneficial settlement agreement had the world not intervened to stop the horror? Now that the […]
Benjamin Netanyahu seeks the same pure race, Jewish supremacy, in Israel, as the White supremacists seek in the USA. I wonder how many White supremacists in the USA and Europe are actually Jew who wear the Cloth of Christian?
I wonder what a photo of Oprah Winfrey weeping/sobbing/crying is doing on nearly every news site I visit? “SHOCKING! End of OWN? Leaked Secret Might Bring Down an Empire See The Secret! She Hid From The World firstnewstand.com” Does Oprah Winfrey even know that her photo is being used that way in an ad? Doesn’t […]
I wonder why the self-fulfilling prophecy only works in the negative, and not in the positive? If I think I’m going to win, I lose. If I think I’m going to lose, I lose.
I wonder when we’ll stop referencing a dark history to justify the present darkness? We will never see the light, till we move forward without the dark? ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight
People rarely call other people who are prejudiced against women, bigots. People rarely call institutions that are prejudiced against women, bigoted. I wonder why, then, we call people who are prejudiced against a religion or a race, bigots. That’s a prejudice in itself. They rarely even call these prejudicial people and institutions, sexist. They rarely […]
People define a lie by saying it’s the opposite of a truth. Or define a truth by saying it’s the opposite of a lie. What’s a lie? It’s when you don’t tell a truth. What’s a truth? It’s when you don’t tell a lie. What’s a truth?
Macy’s Department Store recently said in response to ending its business relationship with presidential candidate Donald Trump, “Macy’s is a company that stands for diversity and inclusion. We have no tolerance for discrimination in any form”. I wonder if Macy’s Department Store sells food, shoes and fur? Yup, they do. Animals, animals and animals. What comes […]
Just as a person can be transgender, meaning that they don’t identify with their physically assigned sex (the sexual organs that rightly or wrongly categorize newborns as male or female), I wonder if the same can’t be true of race based on color and/or ethnicity? If a transgender person feels that the configuration of their […]
I wonder if whites in Africa call themselves European Africans, like blacks in America call themselves African Americans? ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight
