Subtract

Take away,let go of your fears

Embrace change,let you mind switch gears

Subtract hate and just add care

Life can not be lived if it is filled with despair

Just wanted to say thanks

Sometimes I am surprised that people even read my blog. Yet sometimes I am like “what why aren’t more people reading my great blog, (LOL)”. Then I realize “hey girl you are just getting started more people will soon see just how great you are. ” We have to believe in ourselves,and be happy with the right now. And that people is what I write about today. THANKS all of you that take the time to read my blog. I read many of your blogs to. And they are great. Guys keep doing what you are doing.

Another thing I want to say is that there are many of you bloggers whose blog I follow that I am not notified about when you write a new blog. So if I follow your blog and you get no feedback from me it is because I am not getting your blogs. Hopefully this problem will be fixed soon.

Again THANKS guys.

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.

Race

How fast can I go

Or what color is my skin

If I get the question right

What prize will I win

Will I come in first or last place

Of should it even matter

The fact that it does, makes life even sadder

This race,this race, I still want to win

So I’m running fast, hoping I just fit in
