Recently my sorority sisters got together for brunch to celebrate the New Year, unfortunately due to distance I was unable to attend. As I looked through their pictures I got a little misty-eyed about missing all of the fun. It is such a shame that I didn’t make more of an effort when I lived closer to them because they are such a fun group of girls. Every time I see them I end up laughing way too much and having a better time than I expected so I don’t know why I was such a lazy heifer when we were all within 30 minutes from each other.
I seem to have a problem going out and socializing which is weird because I LOVE to talk. I tend to talk myself out of invites/events unless someone damn near twists my arm. I always have a great time once I get where I am going so I don’t know why I don’t just get up off my ass and go. This is something that deserves further exploration on my part so that life doesn’t end up passing me by and I am left with nothing but regrets.
I would like to give a round of applause to Dougherty County’s newly sworn in District Attorney Gregory W. Edwards. Greg is my cousin who has tortured me all my life by affectionately calling me “Punkin head.” Well today you get a pass Big Cousin I am very proud of you and your accomplishments!
Someone just shared with me a friend of theirs is having marital troubles and the guy believes the main reason he is having these problems is because his wife is black amongst other things, but mostly because she is black. I really found this disturbing as I am a black woman and in no way shape or form does my skin color make me a troublemaker in relationships. If a person chooses to date outside his/her race then I certainly have no problem with that as my family is more mixed up than a box of Chex Party Mix, but to justify your choices by saying black women are drama-filled, like to argue, etc that’s when I have a problem.
I firmly believe that problems will arise in relationships and they have more to do with differing points of view, personality, and perhaps even upbringing/culture, but I do not and no one can convince me that just because someone is of another race will they get along better.
If you like Caucasian, Hispanic, Asian then just own up to it don’t try to justify your choice just be a man and date who you want without bashing your grandmother, mother, or sister in the process.
That is all.
