Racism still runs rampant in modern day America, and we allow it

Race should be colorblind
As a follow up to my article from early this year about MLK's dream. I decided to take a deeper look at my feeling about race relations in this grand country of ours. However before I do I need to issue a disclaimer: The opinion you are about to read will likely not be popular. However, the truth sometimes isn't and I see what I'm about to say as fact. (It may even be considered to be by some, racist. But take to heart that's not what it's meant to be.) With that said, let us begin.

Last time I tackled this issue I said that I look forward to the day when I can stroll down N 5th Street with my brother-from-another-mother Kendrick screaming for joy that at last White and Black parameters no longer exist, we are just humans and God's children. I still look forward to this day, but with each passing day that goes by, I see it slip further and further away.

And that became no more apparent then almost 3 months ago on July 4th, our nation's Independence Day.

Hey, Everyone! Some updates for you.

Hey, everyone! I just thoughts I'd check in and share a few thoughts. I haven't posted much lately on here. Been too hung up in BRaysball Talk.

First off, nothing has really changed in my life unfortunately. I'm still as anxiety driven house-bound as I was last time we talked. I pray for God's help to finally build up the courage to go seek help. Our God is awesome. I know he can.

My brother started up another season of Marching band about a month ago. I haven't seen any of the show yet and I want to. It's his Junior year and I've only been to one game, I'm incredibly disappointed in myself about that. I do plan to go off to the Oct. 5th home game against the Bolts and just have some fun. Haven't had fun outside the house in a while which is a shame. I have a promise to keep to someone. I'm gonna keep it.
