Hate!

I absolutely detest rudeness and hatred. Not sure why, but I guess the southern bell in me see's no need to JUST be rude to people for no good reason. It also see's no reason to hate on people. I mean I really can't think of anyone that I want to take up my time or energy hating. Life is way too short. Sure I might not like some people but really, HATE THEM? Nope, just not my style at all.

I do know there is some hate out there. I also don't spend my time worrying about them haters cause they gonna be. I guess that's why racism and sexism and pretty much all isms really just perplex me, you mean you got that much time to hate people because of something they can not change that has nothing to do with you. Oh well I guess hate on, cause you not gonna stop me.

And yes my whole life is about race and gender in some way form or fashion, unfortunately I don't have the ability to be uniquely me because who I am is both black and female. Of course I don't let anyone define what that is going to be for me, but those are things for the most part I can not change. Speaking of black females here's one of my MOST favorite in the world.

Here's a little sumthin' sumthin' from Jilly from Philly (just for Keith!). I saw she was just in NYC too, man I hate I missed that!

One of the things I don't like about living in Louisville is that we hardly get any of my favorite artist when they do tours.

I have to drive to either Indy or Cincy to see them.

It requires too much energy to hate. The older I get, the less energy I expend on stupidity. I despise rudeness big time. I was raised by my Gran and so manners are ingrained. It chaps my ass when ppl act a fool for no reason.

OG,Being my kind of sistah means I do have to worry about and keep a close eye on the haters.

Sometimes they will take that hate and attempt to do things with it that can be detrimental to me living a quality life.

Hello there!

I am sooo happy I stopped by! I just wrote a post about accepting differences after watching a video last night.

Now, I hop over here and you have a post about hate! I tried to write about "hateration" a week ago and you have captured this much better than I ever could! {applause}

We do need to discuss it because we often SAY we are intolerant of hatred but we accept all forms of disguised classism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, black bigotry...etc, etc....

Thank you for blowing the trumpet!

I was totally talking passive-aggressive hate not beat yo' azz to death or drag you behind a truck or refuse to administer life saving service to you kinda hate.

High five lady, that's what i'm talking about...people waste way too much time on HATE, and it HATE deteriates your soul, so what you have after it is all over...is nothing. Love is the key!
