It'll Get Better

When it all seems Bad, don’t let go!

You Know, In these days when economy is down, people are on edge, it's difficult to keep a positive attitude pertaining to your future.
Stop ! this is the time when we should reflect on what we do have. Either it be good health, a place to live. someone in your life, a few dollars in your pocket, or simply having your sanity. Don't give up. There have been days when I had no clue to what was coming next, being an addict and on the run, I had a feeling that things would get better. One thing that does help is when I stop telling myself that I am doomed !. That type of thinking almost killed me.
Please remember that there are season's for everything, even rough times and they don't last forever.
So look at where you are and compare it to where you could be (in a worse way). and learn to appreciate what you do have. I have maybe $5.00 in my bank account but there was a time when I could not open an account because I owed various banks, and I am grateful that I am not in that position today.
No matter how bad it seems, It'll get Better. Tell yourself that, even if you have to say it a 100 times in a day. Good luck to you

When They Grow Up

Could Biracial Children change
Every one's Way of Living?

The world would be better of if all Black People were DEAD!
All White People are Blue Eye Devils !
Nigger, Spic, Cho-Cho Baby, Porch Monkey
Honkey, Devil, Poor White Trash, Killer,
These are just a few ways that we express our hidden
and sometimes open racial hatred towards each other.
What's worse, is that it does not appear to be getting
any better.
Well, Hold up , Wait a Minute !!! There is HOPE !!
A study has shown us that there is a fast
growing Population of Biracial Children among us.
So fast that it is almost hard to keep up. The study
has also showed that couples are more open about being
in a Multiracial relationship.
My Brother, who's Mother is Italian-White, Married my
father in the early 80's, (my father is a Black Man)
And it was only once that I asked him what does he have
to say about the racial hatred in America?
He very quickly and clearly explained to me that "For
him, there are no sides" " Both bloods run through my Veins"
To hear that from My Brother just Floored me! There were
no more Questions to ask. My eyes were immediately Opened.
At the rate that Multi relations are growing, Biracial
will be the Majority
. I, (who also have my hidden
racial hatred) welcome this change that I & America needs
so that we can move Forward.
I have seen how Biracial children are very motivated, Willing,
Strong minded, and most are very straight up with you.
And most of all, most Biracial people are very sincere.
Soon there will be no reason to hate because of color of
skin. Soon there will be no Black or White American,
simply "I am an American" , that sounds so good to my ears.
I am thankful for My younger brother today. Each time I
see him, that silly old hatred that I HAD slips away more
& more, and it feels good to be rid of that sickness.
As I write this article, I realize that Through My Brother's
Eyes I am Changing the way I look at things abroad and with
other races of people, and that's it ! "We are all
just People."
I say "It's amazing how we can Learn from Children"
I may not be alive to see it, but soon there will be
no "Nigger, Honkey, Wetback, or any of that, Soon there will
Be PEOPLE. I thank GOD for Multiracial Relations, You are the Future
Please Take Care of it"

When I close My Eyes

The True Gift Of Being Blind
There were two men, Mr. Chism (Black) and Mr. Brown (White) both in their
Late 80’s and both were blind. Neither of them was married, and both were
Living with their children.
Their day was mostly centered around going to the local Park each morning as their
children would take and leave them there for two or three hours in a day.
It so happens that one day Mr. Brown could feel the presence of the same person
Sitting close to him every day, and so he decided to spark up a conversation with
Mr. Chism. “I just love coming here and smelling the sweet perfume go buy that
The young women wear, it takes me back to my younger days” said Mr. Brown with
His rough deep southern accent. (You’d think he was Black). “Yes I certainly do agree
with you my friend” said Mr. Chism, born and raised in the upper class part of Manhattan
New York. (You’d think he was white.) And so they began to make small talk with each other
Every day, never to talk about politics, crime or controversial matters, just good old
Small talk, getting more acquainted with each other and they good became friends.
Mostly, their conversations would be about money, girls and their younger years.
Each day as they would go home, life would go back to what they mostly knew.
Mr. Chism would turn on the TV set and listen to the news complaining. “These White
People are always up to no good, they’re going to kill us all! He would shout.
Mr. Brown would sit close to the window in the living room so he could hear the chitter chatter
Coming from outside complaining, “These Black kids are all bad, we should lock’ em all up!
I hate this neighborhood!” He would shout. This anger would bother both of their siblings
Although they lived in separate homes, and the siblings not knowing each other.
Time went on and the two of them would look forward to meeting at the local park on
A daily basis. Then cam the day when Mr. Brown could not feel the presence of Mr. Chism being
There. Days went by, and then came the day when Mr. Chism would not come to the local park.
It so happens that the both of them had fallen seriously ill. But it was by chance that they were
Admitted in the same hospital on the same floor and both were dying. But it so happens that
Being blind, you can tell when someone that you know is close to you. Mr. Chism could faintly
Hear someone asking for Mr. Charles Brown, and likewise the same for Mr. Brown, as
He heard someone asking for Mr. Henry Chism. But they both were too sick to get up to
Go and investigate.
Then came the day, the chaplain was called in to pray for them as they were dying, and
He asked Mr. Brown “Do you have any last request sir?” “Yes” replied Mr. Brown.
I believe I have a good friend here in this hospital, on this floor, as he could barely speak.
His name is Mr. Chism, and I would like to be placed in the same room as he is. His wish was
Granted. That day, barely able to talk they made as much small talk as they possibly could, the family left them alone for a while and were Very much in shock. My dad talking to a black man so openly and
Freely, said Mr. Brown’s daughter, and so was the case for Mr. Chism’s son.
An hour went by and there was no sound, the children decided to go into the room
To investigate. The two of them were gone to sleep, forever.
A question was asked of each of their children, “where do you wish to bury him?”
Mr. Brown’s daughter replied, “A place where I have never seen him so happy,
Next to his Friend”.

Blacks and Whites living together

Will Blacks and whites ever live in harmony ??
Growing up as a child I don't recall ever caring about race or color, but as life went on I began to realize differences in the way society treated people according to the way they looked (skin color). I was able to see a lot of unfair treatment in the justice system and became angry about a lot things. I can understand the anger that Blacks have,,but I dont accept a person giving up in life because of racial unacceptance. My question would be, "Why" Why treat a race so unfair in the name of Jesus or Mother Mary when you've done everything inhumane under the sun to that race of people and expect them to be happy about it? I constantly hear that - that was a long time ago..the only problem is that we are still treated unfairly in the Justice system, the Job market and constantly put down..
Hopefully someday this will all end.

A Plea to America

"Are we ready for a Civil War?"

A civil war is a war between organized groups within a single nation
state. The aim of one side may be to change government policies
 For Centuries now, Blacks in america have been Slaughtered and Brutally
murdered by whites rather it be a hanging from a tree, burned alive, shot
dead in the streets, stoned in the woods or what ever the case may be.
 Since President Obama has been elected into office, there has been an
increasingly amount of public display of racial hatred from
Whites toward Blacks. The amount of Police killings and brutality against
blacks have increased at a faster pace that I have ever seen. Public protest,
arms rights and other insecure concerns from whites are comming out in the
open now more than ever.
 Where the problem lies is, Black people are beginning to get Angry, and I being
black can hear anger from blacks like I have never heard before. On a daily basis
blacks are saying "It's getting closer and closer", then it hit me ! . I immediately
prayed to GOD not to let this happen, please dont let this happen.
 At this Point, America has a chance to prove to the world that we are a Nation
with good morals and principles. We have but one shot at this and now is not
the time to "Drop the ball",
 America is known for it's injustice toward the Black race, I hear this from other nationalities
within this country, but the rise of killings from whites on blacks is beginning to hit
the Black bone, I even hear successful Black women saying "Enough is Enough"
 The Plea to America,,
With the media shoving racial hate down our throats by promoting videos of Ploice
tasering black women in their cars, to 6 offcers beating 1 black man as he is handcuffed,
to a Black preacher being killed in oklahoma , to blacks being singled out for
better paying jobs so that the whites get a first shot at them, to blacks being
charged more intrest rates for credit than Whites, to Blacks being singled out for the
chance to buy property of their choice, Blacks are beginning to feel cornered into
a position were the only way to survive is to "Come out fighting".
America, Together let's end this Madness.
We do not have to die to have Peace!
I plead to the Justice System to make a decision to make the laws "Equal to Everyone"
You, the lawmakers, have the powers to make this change a change that is long over
due. A change that would benefit all walks of life in the U.S.
You, the lawmakers have the powers to give America it's reputation that so many
people have fled their Birth countries to see, become a True reality.
 Let us not become "The Enemy" that our soldiers in other countries fight so
hard against, to help those who can not help themselves, instead, Let us become
the Enemy of Hate, Let us Learn to do what is best for All people as a whole
instead of individually. I can't speak for all Black Americans(not african americans),
but when and only when seperation ends, is when we can finally live together in peace,
Like it or not, we do live together, but together we can Live and be Ok with each other!
Give it an honest try, it just might work

Ted Kennedy on Health Care

"If The senate, and Congress can have Good health care,
then so should the People of the United States have good
health care" (Ted Kennedy April 2008)
There is something wrong with our Nations Leaders. !!
 Across the U.S. there are Millions of people who have
sold their homes, cars, personal belongings, just to
pay for treatment for themselves or their Loved Ones and
without a decent health plan, that will only get them so far.
Ted Kennedy stated that Several times he has brought this
issue up and each and every time he was told that "now is
not a good time" Well,,  Americans would like to know, "When
is there a Good Time to handle this issue?" You, The Senate, Congress,
the President, The House Representatives have the best Health
Coverage that money can buy and you're telling the people
whom elected you that we're not worthy or that important?
  It is truely sad that the American people are fighting the president
on this issue when all he is trying to do, is to "give Everyone a
fair chance at life" It is sad to see those who say that they care,
show a very different demostration from what they say.
  Just a suggestion:
Take time to think of someone that you know or knew, whom if
they had better treatment for their ailment that things would have
turned out differently. For a moment if you can, to those of you who
are bitching about this matter, would come down off your High Horse
and imagine yourself in a position where the help that you needed was
right in your presence but is not available to you because you cant afford it.
  This is not a Black or White issue, this is an American issue that has to
be dealt with. The sad thing is that there is a solution, but I see the "Well
I didn't come up with the solution so therefore I'm against it Attitude" that
this childish way of thinking is causing Millions of Americans whom Elected
you to suffer behind your thoughtless way of thinking.
  We are getting sick and tired of the Selfishness, the dishonesty, and
the broken promises the you (Elected Officials of the U.S.)have sold us
and it's time to deliver, and it's time to quit Passing the buck !
  We do need a Universal health care Program for All, and you know that,
for this Once if you will, Put down your guns and at least help the President
with this Plan, So many times I hear that the President should live up to his
Promises, well SO SHOULD YOU !
Americans are counting not only on the President of the United States,
but we are also counting on you (Our Elected Officials).
It's time to Do The Right Thing
