Yona, I actually like you, unlike a lot of people seem to ... but in defense of all the people you have a beef with here, show me, prove to me where it is stated that cry me a river is mixed? (Yeah I know what I posted above I was tallking on the phone and typing, definitely not paying attention, because you know me, I will speak my mind regardless and not try to run and hide and be a troll). You and I have had this discussion before. I'm very very mixed, but people automatically assume I am black, just as I'm sure some people automatically assume your daughter is something other than white. It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks, it is all about what is in our heart. Skin color like looks don't define anyone. Please, don't start sounding racist. It doesn't matter that you are married to a Native American or member of the EBCI, when in the end, you still sound racist toward blacks. I think you try too hard and come across sounding anything but the way you really are (nice, thoughtful, etc). But in defense of ccry me a river show me where it is stated he/she is anything other than white. (Sep 19, 2008 | post #125)
Show me where I stated at any place I was of mixed race??? (Sep 19, 2008 | post #124)
Excellent point! (Sep 19, 2008 | post #122)
Personally, I think this topix has gotten totally out of control. You all act as if you are all knowing and you are absolutely correct and no one else could possibly know anything. This topix was about Michelle Obama, whom not one person who has posted here knows. All any of you know is what you have read, heard and assumed and none of that means anything, because most of it is probably wrong. When we read or hear something, we process it in our own manner. Sitting up telling another adult that you are smarter then they are is pointless (especially when you have numerous spelling and basic grammar errors) , because that is only your opinion and you are trying to make yourself look superior. Opinions are wonderful, because every one of us have them, doesn't mean we are right, it just gives another point of view. Remember, your perception isn't necessarily another person's reality.

So proud of you Cameron. Keep proving people wrong. There was a report in the ACT yesterday that stated your role would most likely just be cheerleader on the Marlins right now with the occasional pinch-hit or pinch-running, ha you showed 'em. Continued success. Keep doing an excellent job! (Sep 19, 2008 | post #1)
Are you suggesting that she leave her child in Durham and return to WNC and work during the week and then go back to Durham on Saturday and Sunday and spend time with her severely ill child? I'm sure once Tye is released from the hospital and can be cared for outside the home, Ms. Blanton will return to work, but to expect her to do it now, is crazy. Yes, many people raise their children after a spouse dies and Michaela is raising hers, the difference is, this child was born May 31st and has been in the hospital ever since fighting for his life. I don't think you, me or anyone else would leave their child to return to work. And this has absolutely nothing to do with Mr. Blanton being a trooper, this has to do with a communnity caring for a severely ill child because his mother's world was turned upside down over night.

You may have lived in NC for years and you may not have seen blacks discrimated against or anything else, just because you didn't see it, doesn't mean it isn't happening. I can't explain it to any one of you that isn't black, because it isn't happening to you. But let me clear one thing up right now, I never said I lived in a tough, rough area or that I had it so bad. I work and take care of myself and my children. I've never received any type of public aid ever in my life. To most people, I am successful. But the one thing I am not is miserable. I am happy with my life because that's the attitude I chose to have. But I will say it again, my skin color doesn't define who I am, just as yours don't define you. When meeting people, I always give them the benefit of the doubt until they prove me wrong, or I prove them wrong. Don't read more into what I said, that's how stuff gets started, if you aren't sure about what I said or was trying to say, ask; just don't assume. (Sep 18, 2008 | post #63)
I wouldn't expect any white person to understand what it is like to be black and I don't ask you to. I went to college and graduate school, I would like to think that I got in based on my grades since I graduated from high school in the top 5% of my class and I graduated from undergrad with honors as well. But even if I was admitted due to Affirmative Action, it was me sitting in class every day, it was me taking notes, it was me writing paper and doing my own homework and it was me taking test. If Affrimative Action got me into college or into the job force, it was me that kept me there. Like I said, I don't expect you to understand, just like I can't understand your thinking. Doesn't really bother me that you can't/don't/won't understand, I know and in the end, that's all that matters. No one can do anything for me unless I help myself. I have a good job, go to work everyday, raise my children (also honor roll students) and obey the laws of the land and I have respect for myself. I'm happy with me, even if no one else is which in the end doesn't really matter one way or the other. (Sep 18, 2008 | post #59)
I mean when an officer kills or seriously injures someone, aren't they usually placed on administrative leave, with pay, pending an investigation? (Sep 18, 2008 | post #4)
Ghetto trash? First of all, what is that and what do you base that comment on? And as a black woman in America that has been discrimated against simply based on the color of her skin for the past 40 years and will probably continue to be discrimated against the next 40 years, why should she have always felt proud and thankful? I love living in America, but I don't love the many challenges I face every single day simply because the color of my skin is darker. My skin color doesn't define me. What other blacks have or have not done to others or in their life, does not define me. Stop judging and take the time to get to know someone first. (Sep 18, 2008 | post #33)
Guess what ... every single Democrat in America doesn't have ties to Senator Obama, just like every GOP person has no ties to McCain. And who is to say the person who hacked into Palin's email is really Democrat? People plot things day in, day out - and believe it or not, the GOP could have easily did this to place blame on the Democratic party and make them look bad. Keep believing every thing you read and hear, it only makes you look, well, like you're reaching. And by the way, I just read an article on the email hacking and they were giving no information pending an investigation by the FBI, where did you get your information??? (Sep 18, 2008 | post #31)
Oh God, the idiots are still out and acting their IQ. So sad. It is obvious that some of you posting about this matter has more of a mental illness then the victim; perhaps it is all of you that need a good beating and the taste of pepper spray to cure your looniness. According to News 13 the officer is still on the job - what happened to the investigation that should have occured immediately??? (Sep 18, 2008 | post #2)
Now, that was just funny! Thank you! (Sep 18, 2008 | post #43)
What do you think about todays reports that the death toll for Hrrican Ike is low and it is felt that many of those that lost their life was washed out to sea? (Sep 18, 2008 | post #1)
Yes, if you are income eligible you can be covered by Medicaid - Baby Love to be exact - the key words here are income eligible. And this has nothing to do with anyone being racist, this has everything to do with people just speaking without thinking about what they are saying and how their words can hurt a family that is already hurting more than any of US can begin to imagine. It is very simple, if you don't agree with the benefits or you don't want to contribute, don't. But the heartless, cruel remarks aren't necessary. The family has asked for none of this - they didn't ask for Shawn to be murdered, they didn't ask for Tye to be born prematurely with severe medical conditions, they didn't ask for anyone to hold any type of fund-raiser. People are doing things because they care, because they want to. And let me be very clear about this, if the shoe were on the other foot, I know Shawn and his family would gladly help anyone that was in need and would never be as cruel and rude as so many have been toward them here with their words. The old saying, sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me is very untrue. Words are very powerful and they hurt and once they have been spoken they can't be taken away or erased from memory. It matters not if people say a million wonderful things about Shawn, those things will be over ridden by the hurtful ones. People just need to stop and think about what they are saying. As impossible as it is, try to put yourself in Michaela's shoes and think how you would feel while you sat and read some of the comments posted here if they were directed toward you or your family. Wouldn't feel too good, now would it! I don't claim to know how much the medical bills will cost, I don't claim to know how much money has been raised, I don't claim to know how much insurance money Michaela will get, I don't claim to know anything other than this: Michaela LOVES her child and at this moment in time, he is the only thing that matters to her. She appreciates everything that has been done to try to make her life a little easier because it is so evident in her eyes, her voice, her being when she speaks. And this I also know, Shawn Blanton came from a very upstanding family - you will never find a nicer man than his father, but even more, David Blanton is an honest man and he would never accept money for any reason other than for what it was intended - that I do know without any doubt and would be willing to bet my life on it.
