Hey honeydame, so good to hear from you! Thanks for your comment too.
Nne forget that thing, I am glad that you shut them down..... So happy. Some people really deserve to be given a dose of their melecine. By all means, be wary of new company and all but be polite while you are at it, really, what would it cost to smile back? Mccchewwwww
I cant remember any experience off the top of my head at this moment sha.
Thanks for stopping by Rue and for your comment, some very interesting points.
My view and comments are that parents are blamed for a lot of what our kids do and anything they say even when they are not guilty. I am from Africa and proud of it. I was born there but have lived and inherited the UK as my nation for the past 32 years. By every other means I am now British and my passport says so. I hate the heat too for various reasons including health and that it makes me darker than I am. To interpret this as not proud of my dark skin is not right. I love what I am. I am no longer what I used to be because my passport says so but deep in my heart I am 100% African and will always be.
The issue of your friend's daughter is sad. BUT kids will always be kids if not this then it is bullying etc. Kids can be cruel and I am not sure this kid learnt this from her parents, hence not fair to blame parents. Kids learn a lot in the playground. My take is that, as long as there is sin on earth, racism and evil such as this will always thrive. Racist will NEVER go away.
There is great and evil in both dark coloured and white people all round. I know an incident where a group of black kids around 13 were bullying a white boy calling him racial names such as white trash. This is not isolated to dark coloured people.
I would teach my child what the bible says about her. She/he was created in the image of God and so were the white kids or any other coloured kids. Everything else is a daily teaching that would raise their esteem e.g. telling them how much I love them, they are special, they are beautiful and hugging them and kissing them and spending a lot of valuable time with them. I feel at 7 telling them about Martin Luther King, Kofi etc is far too advanced for them and I am not sure it washes. Just one more comment, the western world has a lot culture, great figures and history too.
I do enjoy your blogs
Very true Myne, thanks for stopping by.
Interesting comments. I'm more oprn-minded I guess. Salvation is personal IMO, some non-christians are more christ-like than religious church going born-again claimers, and people can convert even on their deathbed..
