And perfect is something that I am not K. All I have is my life experience, and my ability to reason, and my willingness to accept what I see is reality. I didn't choose my birth or my life, but it is my obligation to try and make sense of it. I try to be a good person. I try to respect others. My word is something that I want to mean something. I'm the first to admit I'm flawed K, and I do try to recognize those as objectively as I am capable. When my final act is played, I will stand in judgement by God, and can only hope that he will forgive me for my shortcomings. Until then, I am just another lucky human capitalizing on the blessing of living in this country, and making it a dream rather then a nightmare.
I'm most assuredly not perfect either. I just want people to realize that black folk are really just like everyone else. We work, we take care of our families, we worship God, we try to live life to the fullest. Clearly, we are not perfect. But neither are white people nor anyone else for that matter. I guess I'm so fiery about arrogant white racists is because I see what my white in-laws do and have done that is VERY illegal and VERY immoral. I also have close white friends and many of my white co-workers tell me about their immoral, druggie family members. I just sit back and think to myself like "WOW." "And some of these same white folks have the audacity to sit back and condemn EVERYONE else! What hypocrisy!" So yes, while statistically we look selfish and wicked it really makes one think, are white people or any other people really that much different? Spin it how you want O but, in my brief life experience, I've been around an equal amount of industrious, wonderful people of all colors. I've also been around an equal amount of selfish scumbags of all colors.
