Hello there my good people!! You know what, I’m not even going to apologize because at this point ya’ll get me. Listen, 2020 has been anything but remorseful, and I’m literally living in the moment as they come along. I can only hope that ya’ll are doing the same, because this year alone has been more than exhausting. We’ve made it to level 11 in Jumanji 20.0… so let’s just prepare ourselves mentally shall we, because whew!
What did level 11 bring us, or start us off with? The election… and honey chile, honey chile H O N E Y CH I L E… The world, well some of the world is in the words of my 4 year old is “pretty upset mama”. I mean I get it… your person of choice lost, or maybe your not so ideal candidate won? I don’t know, but guess what… Joseph, nor Donald know who we are *gasps* so I don’t know why, nor do I understand why people are are defending them the way they are. You know what I do understand? It’s not about politics anymore, it’s personal… very very personal and a few of the people on my Facebook timeline have made that known, indirectly of course.
Let me lace up my 1’s… so when I did I first realize it was personal?
When people were mad about the selling of guns online stopping, or something like that… *please correct me if I’m wrong* Um… do you know how easy it is to do ANYTHING online? My toddler ordered 3 Iron Man dolls online… oh let’s not forget about the person who filed for unemployment in my name all the way in Rhode Island.. side note, can I have like $50.00 of the $238.00 you got sir/ma’am? All jokes aside, I really don’t think restricting online gun sales is a problem more like a precaution? because well if you can make a new email every 30 days for free Netflix, imagine how easy it is to create a profile to by a gun online and before you know it another school shooting… AGAIN but hey… people don’t see it that way. “Their freedom is being taken from them” ummm you can still buy them….right? just not at home in jammies. If I’m wrong please correct me, I have a master’s degree in Human Resources… not gun policy.
As I’m walking in my 3’s getting ready to step on some more toes, I realized something else that was personal: Not only are people mad that the Vice-President Elect is a woman… they’re mad she’s a black woman. *sigh* Here it is, 2020 and people are so jaded and color blind that they refuse to celebrate the fact A WOMAN IS THE VICE PRESIDENT. We’ve had 48 MALE Vice-Presidents. You do realize in 1789 when this position came into existence it was NEVER made or intended for a woman? Like never… ever. The woman’s rights movement didn’t start until 1848. Let’s be transparent, a black woman was never entered in the equation.
I’ve read comments from people everywhere and again, it’s more personal than political:
- “Have you seen/read about her past? She’s HORRIBLE how dare you vote her in office” — So we’re judging people based of their pasts now? *head scratch* If I told you about my past, would you judge me too or say “damn girl you made a complete turnaround” Another question… who are you to judge anybody? Last time I checked that’s God’s j… never mind.
- “She’s a cheater!!” — is she a cheater because your candidate lost or because you have proof and you were in Pennsylvania? Your husband cheated and you stayed…or you saw your best friend cheat and didn’t’ utter a word… When you read #3 make sure you reiterate the importance of making sure “sore loser” isn’t a characteristic of a role model..
- “She’ll never be a role model for my daughter!!!” – so you mean to tell me you’re going to tell your daughter she can be anything she wants in this world except vice president of the united states because of your personal thoughts/feelings? You’re setting the standard… also children don’t care about politics (just FYI)
- “She has no morals” – I have to LOL at this one because you can’t be serious… Matter a fact, I’m going to step on your toes in a different pair of Jordan’s for this one.
For this one… I’m going to wear my 6’s I always get them a size smaller because I’m not going be walking around with boats on my feet…
Morals, that’s where I left off at right? Can you be a hypocrite and still have morals? I’m only asking because… saying “grab her by the p—y” is kind of ummm degrading don’t you think? Crazy part is, everyone seems to have forgotten that OR they pacify it. “it’s okay, it’s just locker room talk”… So much for integrity huh? Let’s be 100% real here… If your daughter came home in tears because my son and his friends made that comment to her or around her you’d want him punished to the highest extent THEN you’d question me and my parenting… God forbid him and his friends walk in their locker room changing and he says “Here. pick one they’re all yours” STONE HIM!! would be your response… I mean I could go on and on, but do you see what I’m getting at? IT’S PERSONAL!!! It’s okay for the highest in charge, but if my youngin does it I’m pretty sure you’re calling for him to be suspended for a few days…
If you’re still here, thanks… If not I get it. I stepped on your toes and it hurts but the truth hurts. To be clear racism didn’t start in 2016, it was amplified and made comfortable. It kicked off back in 2008, but that’s another story. That’s why I don’t understand why people are so hurt about this election… The chance to denounce racism was given and it was ignored. A 7 year-old boy told my son “I can’t talk to you because your brown, and DT doesn’t like brown people”… So again, it’s personal. Now, let me say this; I’m not saying everyone who supports that agenda is racist because I know some that aren’t and business wise I get it (kinda?) but there’s still a few… that make me question them as a whole, so much to the point that’ll keep my child far far away.
While I’m stepping on toes, there’s a select few that are using religion as a crutch in all this and let me say this. Please stop. Religion and Politics have NEVER went hand and hand. Also, you’re stuck in the Old Testament way of doing things, in Matthew things changed and so should you.
We’re supposed to love one another regardless of the color of our skin, who we love, and where we come from right? Because we’re brothers and sisters in Christ right?
So why can’t you accept the fact that the Vice-President Elect is a woman? a black woman?
Why can’t you accept the LGBTQ+ community? and don’t tell me it’s wrong because “let him who is without sin cast the first stone” and well… I know you’ve sinned, no one sin is bigger than the next, and who are you to judge…
Why can’t you accept Muslims?
Why can’t women do what they want with their bodies?
Why can’t you accept that just because my son has brown skin, doesn’t mean he’s a thug and he deserves less than the next?
Why can you confidently stand behind someone who who can’t and won’t accept any of these?
because it’s not political… it’s personal.
That’s the last toe, I promise.
