Aletha thinks I’m slacking off since I haven’t posted for awhile. So, I put this up even though it is not finished. I have been busy with one thing or another lately and have had little time to paint. I’m actively seeking a warm supportive woman with a TON of money to pay for my wife and I to retire and travel the world painting.
I saw an article the other day. Forget where. It may have been in USA Today (I like the colorful pictures of catastrophe). Anyway, this article was about an athlete selected as female of the month/year/decade or something, being …. “the first African-American female” to win some sort of ice skating championship. What the hell! What does skin color have to do with skating? This is the sort of thing that promotes racism. Now, if she had robbed a bank, it would be pertinent to mention her color or ethnicity. It would help to know you were looking for a black female and not a Scandinavian runway model.
I don’t know which is the more aggravating, racism or stupidity. If we as a country seek to end racism, how is it we can have a Black Entertainment channel and Latin Grammys? You can imagine the media buzz if someone were to propose a White Grammys or a Good Ole Boy White Channel.
So let’s forget about skin color except for bank robbers. And also could we just kill spammers, and those who insist on spraying their ignorant monikers on walls and bridges, etc. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a complete word let alone a sentence by the graffiti mongers.
Ok, got that off my mind; think I will elevate my feet and unwind.
