If there is beauty in everything then why…..

If there is beauty in everything then why do other people feel the need to tell us what is beautiful? If you pay attention you will notice that there is some people in society that tell you what you should like. Some people will actually use the words” everyone likes this, this is all the rage, “. Then you have the others not saying words yet placing the words without saying them all over tv or a magazine.

Shouldn’t we know what we like. Think about this, there was once a time when many people thought having a big butt was ugly.Having full lips was ugly. Now many people go out of their way to achieve both. I once watched an episode of Andy Griffith and on this particular episode Aunt B was bullied after she won a fur coat and some home appliances. Every time she wore that coat “her friends,” talked about her. Saying things like “it’s not cold enough for that for coat, ” and, ” she thinks she’s to good to be around us in that fur coat. ” They made her feel so bad she eventually gave all her prizes back. Of course the next day one of her “friends” were walking around with a similar if not the same for coat. Her excuse now that she had it is” it’s not to hot to wear it. It’s nice and feels good, “. The moral of the story is some times people will tell you that something is ugly if they don’t have it,or if they can’t do it, or they didn’t invent it. I know I always seems to call back on us black people. Honestly I can only go by what I see and what I know. Another example would be the use of fun colors in our hair. When we did it, it was considered ghetto, on the other hand when white people do it, it is considered mermaid hair. That’s probably why white people are so mad about The Little Mermaid,who by the way is not real. I mean I do have a mermaid that lives in the water next to my house,but she is a grown woman mermaid. And she can not sing. Anyways as I was saying before, no one should be able to tell you what is beautiful.

Well that is all I have to rant about today. If any of you are aware of some of the things you are told to like comment below. I would love to hear from you.

I’ve noticed that….

I have read quite a few great blogs and I came across one that made me ask this question to myself and to America. Lifesfinewhine.wordpress with PoojaG recently answered 73 questions in a kinda of magazine style homage,it was awesome. Anyways,one of her answers got me to thinking: PoojaG stated that her nationality is Kenyan.

I know you maybe wondering what am I getting at. Race and nationality are not the same thing, however it made me wonder. Do people in other countries have to identify what race they are? I mean when I was stationed overseas I was normally only identified as an American. Yet when I came back to America I am quickly reminded that I am an African-American, though I am not from Africa.

It’s like being given a label to make sure I stay in the right level on the shelf. Why is there a need to break down to the race of a person? I often wonder why that question is on every application you ever fill out. Of course they tell you that it is not important but they want to know. Okay people my question is are any of you ask about your race often? Or is it more about your nationality? Does it even matter? Because what race you are over here in America is important. They say it ain’t,yet they ask on everything.

Okay so I am through with my rambling. People feel free to chime in. I would love to know how your race or nationality has affected your life.

It starts with weed.

I’m sure many of us have heard the saying, ” weed, marijuana is a gateway drug. ” Of course I did not believe that,now I’m starting to wonder. Perhaps that saying is true. Hear me out before you disagree with me on this far out theory that I’m about to spit out.

Okay, so as I said before marijuana is believed to be a gateway drug,because people believe that once you start smoking weed it makes it easier to try harder and harder drug. You know drugs like meth,heroine,cocaine, oxycodone,etc, you get the idea. Once you see people smoking weed all the time you become use to it. At some point it is not even a big deal. Next thing you know it will become legal and all the state’s will be making billions from tax revenues.

I’m sure no one thought that would truly ever happen,but it did. Now again bare with me here. Ok so over say maybe 20 years ago the Osbournes where the first family to have a reality show. Next thing you know regular tv shows like CSI and Rikki Lake are canceled for a reality show. We are getting so hooked on reality tv we now vote for a president because we see him everyday. No one saw that coming either.

Everything was slow and subtle,we didn’t see it coming. For this reason we should be aware of what we are excepting. Because over time thing a will change of we are not aware. This could be good or bad. Look at your life now. Can you pinpoint the exact moment when everything changed?

I know I may be a little out there. But sometimes my mind will do that.
