When people are treated like second class citizens for generations; how is the future shaped?

"The most compelling explanation is that all those early lynchings worked....So it may be that by the mid-1940s, when Stetson Kennedy was trying to bust up the Klan, it didn't really need to use as much violence. Many blacks, having long been told to behave like second-class citizens - or else-simply obliged. One or two lynchings went a long way toward inducing docility among even a large group of people, for people respond strongly to strong incentives. And there are few incentives more powerful than the fear of random violence - which, in essence, is why terrorism is so effective."  --Freakonomics #domesticterrorism   #insitutionalizedviolence

I have always believe DuBois and Washington were both right. Instead of pitting against each other, work together. There is never just one solution to any human problem with the exception of one thing - we gotta do the work.

HM: Baby food, cuz you a big pretty baby.
Me (laughing): Oh yeah?
HM: Yeah, you should let me take you out.
Me: How r u going to take me out and I'm giving you the $?
HM: I take you out and you get anything you want. And I won't even ask for any nookie unless you want to give it to me.
Me (laughing hard, I give him $1)
HM: Hey! You gave me too much, want your change?
Lmao! 
$1 given on each corner to two different men hitting on me - the experience: priceless.

I can't believe I just said this:

"The family unit is so broken down that we just have new generations of some soft, lazy, dependent-upon-everyone-else people."

Parents: please do yourself and your children a favor. Love your children AND raise them. Teach them to survive, strive, and Thrive Teach them to problem solve. Teach them to love. How? By showing them and doing it yourself. Learn the skills - pass it own. You pass on more than your DNA. They'll do what they want to when they're grown, yes. But imagine how different their picture of life will be if their canvas is larger and they have more colors to paint with.

This video is 3 years old, but the original doll test was done in the 1940s.  I would cry, but tears won't change this. I would yell, but anger has done nothing. I would pray...I will pray and do what I can to heal this race we call human. Who is with me?

Yay! Lauren & Josh, the homeless couple I give breakfast to on Friday mornings, will be transitioning into a rehab home soon. Now I can't be upset when I don't see them anymore.  #happiness #prayforthem

High achievers fail at intimate relationships: Product of Dysfunctional Families (Food for Thought)
"Some people who grew up in troubled or dysfunctional families found it difficult to complete a task or a project or to make decisions. This is because they did not practice doing so with the guidance and support of an important other. By contrast, others from dysfunctional families may be high achievers in some areas, such as education or work, but are repeatedly unable to achieve in other areas, such as intimate relationships."  --Charles L. Whitfield M.D. in Healing the Child Within

Good food, but service isn't fast. Courteous, depending on who you work with. I arrived with 2 minutes to spare before closing. I wanted to buy a slice of cake and i saw people were still eating. The woman at the door wouldn't let me in. She said, "we close at 10." It wasn't yet 10. Another worker told her i just wanted to buy a slice of cake but she refused. I asked what time I should arrive in the future to make last purchase and she repeated herself, "Sorry, we close at 10". We stood talking at the door about how they close at 10, me showing her it wasn't yet 10 for 2 minutes. I finally asked, "should i arrive 5 minutes before?" She replied, "That's fair. We close when our clock says 10." Smh. I could've bought the cake and been gone by 10. They would have had a few extra dollars, I would've been Happy and left a great review. This is what separates good businesses from poor businesses. Not only did they lose my sale that day, they are going to lose future sales.

Mail with my full name and address are being returned to the senders. Also, the postal worker has made off with my package. It was neither delivered to me, left at the post office, nor was it returned to the merchant. I'm not sure how to avoid using a particular post office, but I may need to keep my PO Box in Los Angeles.
