https://i1.wp.com/www.skeptic.com/eskeptic/05-02-18images/RACE_Book_Cover.jpgI was reading a book by a famous scholar and he provided evidence that suggested that the problems of race was deeply embedded into society ever since the times the Greeks visited Pharaohs in Egypt and  have carried on to this day.  Today if you ask someone here in America of a certain persuasion whats your race,he’ll probably tell you hes’ American. Thats exactly what some people put on their census forms every ten years. But how is American a race? I know it is a nationality but a race,not to my understanding  of the meaning of the word.

I think people rightfully call themselves American as a race because people are called African American,Hispanic American etc. But isn’t an American only an American whether or not naturalized. Why can’t people be accepted as who they are, why we always have to make people feel unwelcome by calling them something to imply second class status? This great country have achieve so much positives but also negatives in its quest to do the right thing but the question is what is the right thing,who is right? Why can’t everyone be called simply An American,not African American,not Hispanic American.

When i listened to Michelle Obama say that for the first time in her life she is proud of her country,i believe her and simpatize with her. Even calling someone black or white is simply inappropriate because in color there is no value. Can you buy white or black? no you can not because its worthless,that is what is protrayed when someone says that black guy or that white woman they are implying worthlessness. Why can’t everyone be accepted as who they are Americans nothing more nothing less.

They told us that the internet would bring us increase knowledge and access to information that would benefit all of us but i haven’t seen the benefit when our children are failing miserably in math and the sciences. What are we going to do stay dumb forever and outsource everything to the Chinese? The Chinese are better educated that we all came from Africa,the evidence is in our genes but how many people in American knows that? they are probably watching the new episode of America next Top Model and some of my fellow republican wouldn’t want you to know that so i’ll say it, i am sorry for all the wrongs done to you all and hope you can move on..

Rozita Swinton 

The moment i heard about the raid something struck me as odd. The authorities said that they recieved a phone call from a 16 year old saying that she had been abused etc etc. This was the reason why they raided the place. Now CNN is reporting that the phone call was a hoax by a black woman. The authories said they are not going to persecute the woman because they have evidence of crimes committed in the compound. See link–> http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/04/18/polygamy.fri/index.html?iref=newssearch The woman, Rozita Swinton of Colorado Springs, colorado is in custody for making a false report to authories in an unrelated case. This reminds of my law class when my profesor said, if something is true then it is not a lie. Obviously some people are praising this woman because they claim Warren Jeff and his church are racists. Breaking up hundreds of siblings and people you call family doesn’t make me happy. I wonder, what would jesus do?
