Another Black Conservative

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!


  1. Hey Mommy Lisa;

    Glad you like my blog. But my rust color shirt, ouch! That one is one of my favorites! I only own one pale pink dress shirt, but when I want to set off my skin color, I usually go for teal or electric blue.

    The brother overreacted about the shirt, geez it was only a suggestion. Perhaps he was really offended about a dude wearing pink.

  2. OMG OMG OMG! So I just went running upstairs like a giddy teenager to tell Keith that Clifton B. commented on my blog!!! For anyone who reads and doesn't know, he's the owner of Another Black Conservative!!!
