Do you feel like you are Stereotyped?

I did not grow up in the 50’s or 60’s yet I feel like we are going through all the hate and discourse that was spreading like wildfire today. I do think a lot has to do with the media. Who seems to make it a point to always show is the one person not happy with something. And that one person somehow represents the many. No I am not talking about the president. I am talking about how the media always focus on any one person not happy about anything. Anyways that is not the point of my blog today.

I want to know have any of you ever been stereotyped? I have. I was once followed into a changing room and stopped before I left the store and forced to remove my clothing because the person did not see me put them back up. It was very embarrassing especially considering what I had on and what I was accused of stealing there was no way I would have been able to steal anything. I was not apologized to just a, ” there’s nothing here, she’s good to go. “.

Any of you ever been treated differently because of the way you look?Have any of you ever been stereotyped?

Have any of you tried the DNA test?

I once ask question: Do you know who you are?”

I have not tried any of the DNA test. I can’t figure out why we need to know where we come from. Well a little part of me does. I guess I want to know is this: When you learn a little more about your DNA does it change anything? There is a reason why we say ignorance is bliss.

Just a thought. Let me know if any of you have tried it.

asking direct questions

provoking challenges within

How I miss the banter

Charlie Rose

I miss watching you

and I know you made mistakes

yet it does not change your journalistic

abilities, you will always be great

Coming apart

How can we say as a nation

that we are united

When politicians and the news

ensures that we stay divided

They find our fears and amplify

them for their own gains

And for what, the purpose of

ratings,likes, we are slowly going insane

We are at our worst, though some will

say we where never that great from the start

We are divided,we hate each other

for greed and ratings we are coming apart

Her approval

There is something that no matter

age,race, religion income

or station in life

A woman is constantly fighting

for the approval of  their mom

despite being a good wife

Can having acne impact your life? But I think I can help.

Quick answer for me, YES! I don’t know that people who have never suffered from constant breakout understand that.

I started having massive breakouts when I was eleven years old. It was really bad. It was so bad I was once asked did I have chicken pox. That was quiet humiliating. I hated going anywhere. I hated talking to people. I often heard people talking about me behind my back, some would be so bold to tell me to my face. “Hey girl you ugly,” “Don’t nobody want you with all them thangs on yo face,” and “Hey ugly,” Sometimes I would get the “why don’t you look like your sister,” as if I had a choice.When I would go and apply for jobs, I was always placed in the back if I was hired.

I know some of you can relate. Acne can be a B*^*h. But here is what I learned about me and acne. When I was stationed in Kuwait they do not drink cows’s milk, which I happen to drink a lot of when I was growing up. Instead I drank a lot of tea, and because I still liked cereal I actually put water(which I do not recommend) on my cereal. My skin slowly started to clear up soon it was beautiful. And for the first time in my life i got a compliment. Yeah you heard me, a compliment. I had never had one, only insults.

Later on I learned of black African soap and shea butter, both of which has held me tremendously with my skin.

So below are the things I use to help treat my acne

Very low amounts of cows’s milk, (I think this is because of all the hormones )

Retin-A which I sometimes use but not often

Shea butter

Black African Soap

I also notice I tend to have more small breakouts if I eat a lot of pizza.

I hope this helps someone. There is nothing good about acne.
