Permalink afaceunseen #AFaceUnSeen #BlackLivesMatter #HandsUpDontshoot #EndRacism … I have been lucky to have traveled the world and I know the 1st thing everyone sees is my skin tone, ignorance pops up everywhere, and narrow minded people delve into their own precieved notions of who they think I am, and ask “what do you?!?” As if “why is she here, who does she think she is?!?!?” Sad, yet true and I smirk and live a full colorful life, I am HERE deal with it.  I’m honoring my great great great great grand parents and my ancestors for their fight for equality and justice. The fight continues in 2014, MLK’s dream is deferred, as I look at my Facebook and Twitter newsfeed…
Sunday evening August 24th 2014
As I watch my daughter study three days before school starts, I worry about how the world will treat her when they see her.  When they look at my daughter the world will see her natural twists and milk chococlate skin.  The world cannot see that she attends an exclusive private school, the world doesn’t know what she has been on the gifted track since Kindergarten and achieved and won several academic awards, and that she tutors a few of her friends to help them stay off of academic probation.  When the world looks at my daughter they cannot tell that she’s a Black Belt in Karate.   My daughter is going to the 10th grade this fall and will be driving soon, …  I won’t always be there to protect her and I worry for her safety; every time I see parents address a news conference about the loss of their son or daughter.  It saddens me that African American parents are accepting that Police misconduct has happened again, now its their child, no its our child(ren) its America’s child(ren).
I worry about everyone’s child, they all deserve a fair shot, justice, and fair treatment no matter their academic, social, racial, and economic status.  
 P.S.
I still cannot get over how everyone forgot about the missing girls abducted from their boarding school in Nigeria, what happened to them are they not important, where’s the international investigation, and the update from any active UN police work, is there any justice or resolve?!?! #BringBackOurGirls!!!
 Dear God, please *handle* so I can be calm, and don’t go off over here.  Amen
