My new obsession is a blog called "Another Black Conservative" I've mentioned his blog multiple times in my own blog and I adore him! He is so common sense and he seems to be really in touch with the real world. This, along with Jen Lancaster of Jennsylvania, are two blogger who I don't know but I'm convinced we'd (all three) be bff's! Seriously, we might be a strange group together but I KNOW we'd be the dynamic trio!
With that said, I can't wait to read both of their blogs regularly and I've also read their "about me" sections and commented how much I would adore them in real life.
Today, reading the about me section of another black conservative, to Keith, I made a comment about the orange shirt he was wearing in the picture. I commented that he should wear a pink shirt because black people look good in pink and orange wasn't his color.
That comment got me to thinking about moving day a year and a half ago. We had three men moving us and I don't remember the conversation exactly but I made a comment about how terrible I look in pastel pink, because I'm so pale. Then I told our mover, who was black, that I bet he'd look good in pink. Truly, my opinion, darker skin looks awesome in lighter pink colors. He looked at me like I had just said the most vile thing to him...he then said "because I'm BLACK?!?" Okay, so I thought he was joking and said "you knew, right?" Well, he wasn't joking...he was offended. I took a bad situation and made it worse! He sulked off to the moving truck and I didn't see him again for the rest of the day! Thank goodness, I didn't offend him until we were almost done! ha!
Yes, I have a lot of faults, NO, racism isn't one of them. Yes, I see skin color, I'm not blind, but I don't judge skin color. I also see hair color, eye color, weight, height, clothing, accessories, ect, ect. I respect different races and different cultures and I like to learn about everyone. I do (not proudly) judge people sometimes...I may judge by a lot of different things but seriously, race isn't on my list of things I choose to judge by.
Politics, that's what I judge on! Ha!
