Today I watched CNN which in hindsight was a mistake because my IQ went down as my blood pressure went up. I’m also getting a little old for pink, however, I just could not look away,Â despite the glowing fuschiaÂ tone I knew I’d acquired from the heat coming off my skin.Â
This is a sensitive subject but it needs to be addressed because I firmly believe that if it gets enough of the right kind of attention it will no longer have any power over us. hold.Â There is no getting around the fact that it still exists in
fools the deepest darkest areas ofÂ a bad and narrowÂ minded soul where it can hide and fester without fear of being found by the light of recriminationÂ retribution and revenge.Â What am I talking about that has my blood pressure in such a twist and has put my thesaurus toÂ such good use?
How isÂ first time IÂ heardÂ about the Jena 6 wasÂ just today whenÂ this incident happened a year ago? Â Now, I’llÂ admit that I’mÂ not the most news minded person in the world.Â I’d rather read and ridicule Britany, Bradjelina, Benifer and the rest than have to think about politics and such.Â But you’d thinkÂ we’d have all heard something by now.
Cover up. Conspiracy.Â Crooked Politicians.Â WhateverÂ the reasons were, they no longer matter, because some enterprising soul gotÂ theÂ celebs involved now and the eyes of the nation are upon them. Remember thatÂ Shame Light? Well, it’s on high beam now!Â
More than likely it was the celebs that caught my attention, but whatever the reason, I feltÂ shamed, despite the fact that I was guilty of nothing more than being born below the Mason/Dixon Line. It’s a sad fact that racism is alive and well, but the best way to stop the ignoranceÂ is to listen to your fellow man,Â learn fromÂ them and love one another no matterÂ the color, creed, or religion.Â Who taught meÂ about tolerance?Â Surprinsingly enough it wasÂ my sweet southern grandmother, so there is hope for the future, believe it or not.Â
WeÂ can beat this disease, by shining the bright light of shame on the ignorant. Though they’ll just scurry back under the rocks like the slimy lizards they really are. But, at least we’ll haveÂ gotten a good gander at their faces so we’ll know whoÂ to look for for the next go round.Â Â Â
