OK. I'm going to be more specific. People who look like me, like most of you will read this, have failed. We as white people have failed to end racism. We could have, but we quit. It got too hard so we walked away. I'm watching a four part documentary by Dr. Henry Louis Gate … Continue reading We Have Failed
This was originally done as a post on Facebook, in reply to denials that racism still exists. A name was mentioned in the FB posting. This original posting was done to support attacks being directed at her as a Black woman. Her name has been changed to XXXXX. I think that too many people don't … Continue reading Thoughts on Racism…

It was nearly four years ago, four years of chaos, of hate, of Donald Trump's messed up behavior. I've been thinking a lot about the march lately. I wrote about it before I had a blog. I created this blog as part of my fight against hate, lies, and the presidency of the orange one. … Continue reading Thoughts on the Women’s March
I'm tired today. I suspect a lot of us are, life has been like that lately. Yet today, I don't mean the tired in my heart, in my soul, sort of tired. I'm referring to the normal, I didn't get enough sleep, tired. And, no, it wasn't because I stayed up way too late waiting … Continue reading A Poll Worker

A friend, who is also a member of this group (who can say "it was me" if they choose to), asked on a separate thread: Can Black people be racist? Frankly, it's a hard question and … Continue reading Hard Questions
I posted this earlier to an antiracist group I started on Facebook. I've taken out the names of the others involved. They can choose to be public. It's not up to me to expose them. A conversation today: "All lives matter". David's response? "Yes they do". (and a tease, all news stories need a good … Continue reading David’s Day
Or perhaps more accurately, what has David been doing? It's possible that some of you have wondered why I haven't written much lately. I know a friend did ask, specifically about why I've been quieter on Facebook. Actually, I haven't, I've just moved to a different forum. So what have I been doing? The answer … Continue reading Where is David?
This originally appeared on Facebook in response to a question as to whether it was racist for a police officer to have a clipboard with the words "Blue Lives Matter" on it. ___________________________________ I can't speak to this particular officer's mind or what is in his heart. I don't know who you saw so I … Continue reading Thoughts on Police….
This was originally posted to the Uncensored Melrose Community page on Facebook. It's a follow-up to my last two entries here. ________________________________________________________ First, I want to say thank you. I don’t know who drew on “my” corner, who wrote these words to Melrose, to me. My friend, City Councilor Jack Eccles, sent me the photo. … Continue reading More on “Who Is David”
