    So I know this happens quite often, but I'm sick of it.

    I was working at the school at these two white girls came up to me and asked if I was some little black girl's mother. Excuse me?

    Of course I'm not going to get offended by what these two children said, but it bothered me.

    Cause my boss who hired me in the school system (whom is also black) told me to watch out for these white folks cause they like to assume that we are all related.

    He had hired another young woman, who is also black, and gave her pretty nice position in the district. People started to assume that this woman was related to my boss cause she was black.

    I don't go around asking other white (or other nationalities) folks if random people are their relative.

    Are they missing the gene that allows them to distinguish what is from what, and who is from who?

    The other night I was watching the news and these folks were trying to say President Obama was in the "Whoomp there it is" video (link)

    No no no

    Not all evil is big and scary

    Some evil is small and takes little bites of you all the time


    Dont let others control you by agitating you


    Whatch out for your self dont let your pride and strength become a weakness...

    The most irritating thing you can do is not react ...

    Reaction letz people control your emotional state.. and people have found that to easy because we dont have material thngs.


    Basically their conversation probably went something like this...


    "Watch this ... ehehe... she is so proud of herself and thinks she so beautiful.... eheheh ... all i have to do is ask her one question and watch how she becomes ugly with rage and anger but tries to hide it... lol ahahah ahahaha watch this.....


    Control your emotions dont let others take you away from your job or your happiness... it is tougher than getting angry....


    And i am not perfect i am still working on the same things that i speak of...


    Much love and light to all....

    What? :10500:

    I did not say I was angry...

    I was bringing up somethings that I'm sure happen to most black folks when white people seem to think we that we are related to one another...

    This happens a lot to me too. But I'm Asian. Either way, it's not really a big deal, it just creates more unity within your community ;)

    Actually, I am able to use it to my advantage sometimes.
    If you really think about it, it can be beneficial at times.
